We're Having a Baby!

A lot has happened since I last posted. For those who don't know Charlie and I are expecting a baby girl in January! We are so excited and can't wait. Sometimes it feels like the months drag on and on... but then I look back and can't believe I am already 25 weeks. I only have 16 weeks to go!
I have been feeling great! I had a little bit of morning sickness during the first trimester, but it wasn't too bad. I bought a pair of maternity jeans and they are my best friend. I have also been a crocheting fool! I went to the all mighty and powerful youtube to learn how to knit last year when I got my wisdom teeth out. This year I decided I wanted to learn how to crochet. My first project was a baby blanket and then I made a bunch of hats! 
Baby hats for our baby! I like to crochet hats because they are so quick and I can get them done in a day.

This is the blanket I crocheted.

Charlie and I have been doing a lot of home updates (well Charlie has). We had popcorn ceilings and Charlie scraped them off and then textured them. I gave him glasses of water and told him how awesome he was doing. We also painted our kitchen and living room walls white. And my amazing mother came down and painted our nursery blue for us! It looks so cute. We hope to get the rest of our house painted soon and then we plan on laying some wood-looking floor and getting new carpet. I can't wait to say goodbye to our ugly orange 70's carpet! I hope we can get everything done before our baby gets here. That is my goal.
That is my belly today. I feel like it is huge, I can't imagine it getting any bigger. Under my barely visible feet is our orange carpet. It look orangey-er in real life. 

I haven't been very good about taking weekly baby bump pictures and I am a little behind. But here is one from 20 weeks.
This is the last one I took. I need to catch up!

In other non-baby related news, Charlie got his real estate license! So anyone looking to buy our sell a house give him a call. And feel free to refer your friends to him too. ;) 
Isn't he handsome?

I found the cutest thing in our yard! Look at these snails. We don't really like snails in our yard, but these ones were just too cute I had to take a picture before I kicked them out.

A Radish in Our Garden

I grew something! I grew something! I grew a radish! Charlie and I have a little garden we are doing out best to help nourish. I am not so good at the nourishing. I might have accidentally left the water on in the garden the other day when we went to Costco, and sometimes, maybe, I forget to water the garden... BUT despite all my gardening challenges, we grew a RADISH! 
When we planted the garden we didn't put any markers to help us remember where we planted what. We thought our radishes were lettuce. Before you think we are too silly, just know this is our first garden. Anyway, today Charlie's sister came over for a minute and told us our lettuce wasn't lettuce. She said it was radishes and there was one that looked ready to harvest. So we harvested our little hearts out, kind of, we just got one. There was only one ready. Then we ate it! I don't really like radishes, but it did taste better than a normal radish because we grew it in our own garden! I love our little radish.

I Love Earth.

Happy Belated Easter!
Happy Earth Day!!
To celebrate Earth Day I planted succulents in this cute measuring cup from my sister.
My niece really wanted me to take a picture of her roly poly, so I did... for Earth Day, you know?
Also this is our garden. We failed at planting indoors, but our garden is looking pretty good!

Saturday is the best day of the week. It is the only day Charlie and I have off. This past Saturday Charlie and I went to Ace Hardware and bought some seed starter pots and planted some tomato and jalapeno seeds. I have never had my own garden, so I hope this one works out! We will see later in the year I guess.

Wish us luck!

Merry Christmas (a little late) and Happy New Year!

Happy new year! 
I think 2014 is going to be a really good year. 
And also Merry Christmas, a little bit late. We had a really good Christmas, even though we had to work all day. Right after work we went straight to Enterprise so we could be there when Charlie's brother called from his mission. We hung out with  Charlie's family there and I called my dear family on the telephone. 
Charlie's favorite gift... clothes! (not really, but it's ok)
I asked for a new lens for my camera this year. I didn't think I would really get it, but Charlie surprised me! He wrapped it in a million bags and then put it in a big box. It was a lot of fun to open.
We also got that new TV that's behind me. It's the big TV on top of the small TV. We like to keep things classy. ;) 
And here is us, happy as clams (where did that even come from?) on Christmas morning. Excuse my tired face, I was sick, but Charlie looks handsome as ever! 

LOVE YOU ALL!!! Hope your Christmas and new year was fantastic!

Our Christmas Tree

We went out and chopped down our own tree. Well... Charlie chopped it down and I cheered. It looked soo good out in the wilderness, perfect size, perfect shape. Then when we got it home it still looked really good, but it is just really big! It takes up alot of our living room. I love it though, I love Christmas.
