Thanksgiving 2009

So being the last day of November and having no time to blog this last week, i thought id take the time to write about what we're thankful for, after all, we ALL have SO much to be thankful for. Here's what we came up with:

-The gospel
-Our families
-Our friends
-Eachother (DUH!!!)
-Our baby on the way
-The temple and the covenants we've made
-Being on our own, away from family so we rely only on eachother(i mean this is a nice way)
-Our jobs
-Our childhood memories
-LIFE and especially married life
-Our pets
-Our new HOT couch!!!
-Having our own place to call home & to make our home
-All of our belongings (materialistic, so what)
-The opportunity we have to be responsible on our own
-Supporting and taking care of one another
-Not relying on anyone for help
-Not having to ever be away from eachother

These are just a few of the things we're thankful for. Hopefully all of you have taken the time to think about what your thankful for. Its neat to reflect upon all that we have. Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving holiday. I know we did.

For our First thanksgiving together, we spent it at our aunt and uncles house. The Shield's. We went and saw Surrogates in the theatre and then headed over the the house for dinner, football and ultimate frisbee. Overall, it was a great day. It was nice to spend time with family and we're thankful for the hospitality of the Shields. We love you all so much.

Our First Ultrasound

Today we went and had our first ultrasound for the baby. I am officially ten weeks and the due date is June 15th, just as we suspected! When we first found out we were pregnant, and even up until today, it was surreal. Yes im sick and have all the symptoms of a pregnant woman, but still, it was surreal. When we saw the baby today, it hit us hard. THIS IS REAL. There is a baby in me. Its neat that technology allows us to see whats going on inside of our bodies. The ultrasound tech was so nice and went over everything with us. I love him and i love my doctor. Its people like them that are going to make this process go more smoothly. Anywho, during the ultrasound, the baby was bouncing so much! it was like whole body hiccups! SO cute. I learned that i have a different shaped uterus, nothing serious and that my uterus is the size of a very large orange. Today was a great day. Cant wait for my 21 week mark to find out what we're having.

Dear February 2nd.....Can you please come sooner. Sincerely, An anxious pregnant mother.

Halloween 2009

For Halloween, we spent it with our great friends the Sistrunks and the Drapers. We went to a lounge and ate and danced (well i attempted to, being in a box doesnt show off your moves) and took a bajillion pictures! It was a blast.

How we announced to the world that we are pregnant.
The Harrisons and The Sistrunks
The Girls: Whit, Lauren, Me and Julie
I felt like such an idiot in this thing and could barely put my arms to my mouth to eat!!
Mario and the Oven

Finally Announced.

We are expecting our first little baby in 2010. We went to the doctors and they gave us a guestimation of June 15th until i go in for the ultrasound which is this week. Im so nervous for it. Even with all the nausea and bodily changes already, it still hasnt hit me that ill be a mom. A MOM. it blows my mind. We werent expecting to have one so soon, but thats when the saying, everything happens for a reason, comes in.

We found out October 7th but we're full of mixed emotions that we didnt want to tell anyone right away. So we waited about 2 weeks to tell our families. And about a month to tell everyone else. To tell the parents, we printed this off and i made a puzzle out if it. it was one of the HARDEST crafts ive ever made and took so long. The families loved it though... they better have right?!
