Here is a picture of Jordyn's new glasses. I think they look pretty cute on her. Some day I am going to get her a pair of really wild/stylish glasses... I think it would be so funny! I also included pictures of Jordyn, through the years, wearing glasses.

We are all sick and staying home from church today. I think we are all getting a little bored too, from sitting around for two days. Jordyn has had a "flu bug" since Wednesday and the rest of us have sore throats and colds. I decided the #1 most annoying thing about being a parent is having to clean up vomit. I hate it! I hate that you never know when or where your child is going to throw up. Every little sound or movement Jordyn makes, we're saying,"Agh! I think Jordyn is going to throw up!" You just never know. Jordyn was sad because she had to miss her first primary program today at church and at school she missed seeing a visit from the firefighters. Tom said to Jordyn," I think mommy is the one who is really sad about not seeing the firefighters at school." Maybe he's right, maybe he's not.

The three recipes that I provided links to are all from Light and Tasty... my favorite cooking magazine. I have already made them all several times and we really like them!

I finally got to have my ultrasound this morning and we are having a boy! Of course, we are very excited and are happy that Evan will have a little brother to play with. And Jordyn will have two brothers to protect her! Everything looked great on the ultrasound & I even got to see an "up close" shot of the baby open his mouth and stick out his tongue. It was probably the coolest thing I have seen on any of my ultrasounds because it was so clear and up close. Now we just have to come up with boy names.... I think we will leave the name a surprise, but would love suggestions. Now that we know we are having a boy, I feel like I need to get ready! It is also starting to feel like I don't have too much farther to go, which is always great!

Yesterday we went on a field trip with Jordyn's preschool class to a pumkpin patch. Jordyn got to ride the school bus with her classmates and Evan and I met them there. They did a hay ride, picked pumpkins, walked through a maze, colored & ate snacks. By the time Jordyn got back to school, she was asleep in her wheelchair. It was a fun field trip except it was extremely windy and dirt was flying everywhere! We still had fun!
Below: Jordyn getting pushed through the maze by her teacher & her friend.
The little boy pushing her is also in our ward and is so sweet to Jordyn, as
are many of the kids in her class.
I LOVE this picture... it makes me laugh. Jordyn is taking her
coloring VERY seriously. She's probably thinking,"Leave me alone! I'm coloring!"
Also notice that she is holding onto the crayon all by herself!

I had to wish my sister, Susan, and brothers, David & Joel, good luck this weekend for the St. George Marathon! The time has flown by and I can't believe the race is this Saturday. I was just thinking yesterday,"I can't believe I COULD have been running that marathon!" I can't wait to run a marathon in a few years and be able to ask all of them for their wisdom and advice. So, good luck guys and I know you will do great! I wish I could be there to watch, but I will definately be thinking about you guys all day!
