Let's Pretend we're Walruses Shall We?

We are so well taken care of, that it is virtually unbelieveable! The ward flew into action. Before I even got a chance to figure out what I was going to do with the kids, the ward had meals and child care already planned. We will be better fed and watched over than ever.

The baby is not in any distress and everything seems fine. This is a preventative measure to make sure that I don't have a baby that is too early. If it seems like it's not working... then I have other options to consider (medication, etc) I figure that this will be a big fat pain for all those who help, and for me, however it is way better than having to leave a little one in the hospital.

NOw lets laugh at how much I remind myself of a walrus. My nose is constantly suffed (pregnancy symptom) so I snore like a fog horn. Dave says I snort too, but this I cannot believe because that's just gross. My belly feels like it is so huge that I have to flop from one side to another, much like a walrus. I waddle to the water, the bath tub, about once a day for the relief the water gives, like a walrus. The bigger I get the nicer people are to me like a walrus. The similarities are endless. Although I don't think Walrus's buy Thrifty brand Mint and Chip icecream by the truck load just in case the store runs out. I would take a picure of myself flopped like a walrus but I don't think that I would be able to get up...ever so just imagine me laying on the icy tundra moaning and snoring and you should get a good laugh. I know Dave does. He thinks this is hilarious, and reminds me that this was my idea daily. I blame Grant Jensen (bless his soul) whose whole funeral was about how wonderful posterity is and how families are the greatest blessing of our lives. I felt so inspired that I went home that day and told Dave it was time to finish the family off. He's probably laughing his head off in the Spirit World right now. Thanks Brother Jensen, I hope you and the baby are getting well aquainted.

Now on a sadder note I just wanted to let all those Corona natives know that Ryan Shumways dad passes away the funeral is tomorrow Tuesday at 11:00. I won't be attending but I will be thinking of all the times we were over there. The funeral is at the Corona Oak St chapel.

Sorry it's been so long. I'm sure you all know those weeks when you feel like everything is going on. Everybody has doctors appointments, everybody has dance, school, blah blah blah.

I saw the OB this week and she put me on bedrest for the REST of my pregnancy! I'm sure she totally knows what she's doing BUT does she know what the heck she's asking?! ... with three other kids that is nearly impossible. Besides the impossiblility of it, do you all know how uncomfortable it is to lay down?! I feel like I spend the night flopping from one side to another as it is! I am 32 weeks and I really need to get to 36. That's 4 weeks. I can do that. Nobody needs to be fed or cleaned in 4 weeks right! I went to the store to buy some food that the kids would eat without a lot of fuss. I came home with cereal and a shopping cart full of corndogs, chicken nuggets, ramen noodles, spaghetti-o's, and various other frozen delicacies. The ward will be bringing meals in a couple times a week (every other night while Dave is working). So I hope he can figure out how to work and take care of us all.

Anyway's I haven't charged the battery in my camera in a long time so I don't have any new pictures to post. I gurantee you that the kids look nearly the same as they did a month ago. Well Phoenix does have a beard now, but other than that we're all about the same.

Oh actually I do have a picture to post! This is the picture that went out with our Christmas cards. I don't have addresses for most of the people that blog so here it is. Our "Incredible" Year.
