Happy St. Patty's Day!

Okay, I admit I am not even wearing green right now. I pretty much forgot because I had to get up early to go do a GD (gestational diabetes) and iron test. I passed with flying colors (even if I wasn't wearing the right colors). Woot-woot! On our way to go eat at O-(the Original Pancake House which is SO GOOD, I recommend it) we passed a school yard and it was so cute to see all the kids in their green. Remember those people in grade school and beyond that would hide their green just so when you pinched them, they could get you back ten times? I feel like one of those today because the tag "Motherhood Maternity" on this shirt my mom bought me is written in green. Ha, I guess I am just a bully. I know what my son would be wearing if he weren't in my belly today thanks to family in Florida for sending us a bunch of 0-3 month CA-UTE baby clothes :)! There is a lime-green onesie :)
I feel my belly is getting larger these days. I am now in my third trimester and beginning my seventh month.
It also depends on what I am wearing. I admit I hope I don't end up pushing out a big baby...
Also, the last post is for my beautiful niece. She was born with spina bifada about a year ago and as much as she may struggle physically, she is so angelic and BEAUTIFUL! I bet all 4 of my nieces have on their green for sure (not to mention the 5 nieces and 4 nephews on the other side of the family). If I was with you 13, I would make you all a green sugar cookie because you are all sweeties!
PS. Do you know who Saint Patrick really is? I challenge everyone to look him up if you don't. He was a bishop/ minister in Ireland. He said he prayed 100 times a day! If only I could do that, I may actually be able to say enough thank yous for all the things I have...

Milk and Cereal, Milk and Cereal, Cereal and Milk

Tonight for dinner, I just wanted milk and cereal. It's pretty cool to be all grown up so mom can't tell you no especially when you want that second bowl :).

I helped with decorations for our last Stake Relief Society conference. We made 280 little notes that we attached to little chocolates for all the ladies in the stake. The note said, "Neglect Not the Gift that is in Thee" taken from a scripture in Timothy. The take-home message I learned is that sometimes we make such a big deal out of the little things in our day when that is not what matters in the eternities. One thing my mom is very good at is focusing on relationships even if that means neglecting house chores :). I've been good at cleaning the house lately, but maybe should focus on those eternal relationships...

I also got to hang out with my sister Emily in Twin Falls this last week. She was extra busy for a few days trying to get her voice students ready for being judged at Festival. She went to a funeral the first day I was there and I just couldn't figure out how she got anything else besides watch the girls done in a day. After I fed them, Ellie had therapy, then Emma had to catch a bus for preschool, and they just kept me running. At one point Ellie really needed a nap and fell asleep on my big belly right next to her cousin. I tried to move her when Kaitlin came to visit, and she woke up cranky! It was so good to see my adopted little sister again. She kept saying, "I just can't get over you with a belly!" Ya, it's still weird for me too Katlebug. I had a lot of fun with Emma and when I came home I realized she had taken all kinds of pictures of random things at their house on my phone. Haha, love her ;).

Marshall's show in Provo was AWESOME! The crowd made it fun and the arrangement of songs was great. I wish I had pics to post of these good times, but I haven't been able to find my camera charger for a while, so enjoy the cereal and milk video!
