So again, things are kind of crazy here!!  Two weeks ago, I broke my right thumb, which makes typing, cooking, laundry, shopping, dishes, writing or signing my name all very interesting.  I have a new found respect for those with minor disabilities!  Oh! Did you want to know HOW I broke it??  Well don't laugh!  I was playing basketball with the young men after mutual one night...since three of them were mine.  And yes, I know I'm pregnant...but I have played with each pregnancy.  I try to be careful and not to play too hard.  Apparently I am still fast enough on defense to get my hands on the ball, but too old to do it fast enough to turn it the right way!

I had stopped Jacob at the top of the key.  He was passing the ball to his teammate at the bottom of the key and I stuck my hand into the pass at just the right time to receive the full force of the pass into my thumb.  So blogging has been a little difficult.

We did baptize Spencer!!  Hooray!!  Darren did a marvelous job and the program was wonderful.  We also ordained Daniel that evening and had Grandma and Grandpa there for the visit.
Johnathan should have his mission papers in.....we are still waiting to hear from him that they really are in!!  And he gets home in a little less than three weeks.........but........
Here is the big news you are waiting for........we are having a BOY!!  Can you believe it?!  Me either!!  I guess I am destined to spend the rest of my days in the scouting program and raising priesthood men!  No name yet....still working on that :-)

I am getting a little more excited that we are really having a baby.  I know once he is placed in my arms....I will melt, just like I have with each and every one as I marvel at the entire process!


  1. Congratulations!! You are right, I think you will be involved in scouting forever and ever!!

  2. Congratulations! (hahahahaha.....scouts forever. Then when your boys are all done, you'll get a calling there)

  3. Oy!! I sure hope not! After doing it for this long, I don't want any extra practice! :-)
