like i said..

...i just love conference weekend. We started out by going to the BYU vs. Utah State football game friday in Logan. pretty dull game but we had a good time with my family. On saturday we all slept in and then watched conference. In between sessions my mom was being her martha stewart/betty crocker self by cooking up some zuchinni bread. She added a few of her own twists, which usually always work. I've dedicated a few posts to how amazing my mother is in the past. This one is to show you that she really is human and she too makes mistakes... (just not very often.) Here is her attempt to making Zuchinni bread...something went terribly wrong and her poor oven had definetly seen better days. this bread had been in the oven for about an hour and was still so runny and had blown up in her oven. Needless to say we all had a few good laughs at this one mom.
That night we had family pictures taken in Oakley, Id. They turned out so so good. We stopped at my grandmas on our way out to pictures and to watch the Saturday afternoon session of conference. This is one of the many snapshots of all my sisters. syd, rach, meag, kell and me... Sure do love these girls!!
and who could forget my dad. I just love this guy. he keeps us laughing ALL the time. Don't let this picture fool you..he is one of the happiest people i know....he just likes to put on a front to show his tough side. I dont know how i got so lucky to have such great parents. Love you dad.
Our photographer found out that i was pregnant and kept wanting to take pictures displaying my belly. The thing is that i still dont really look pregnant..i just look like i've gained 10 pounds. Anyways, she made trae wrap his arms around me and make a heart on my stomach for a few pictures so we had fun making fun of this silly pose. (just imagine that my triangle looks like a heart)
anyways..it was a FANTASTIC weekend!!

Lis,
First of all I noticed that your coundown in now less than 100 days. Holy moly! I'm getting so excited for you. Secondly, I think that I am bigger now than you will ever be. (a little jelous but still love you) I need to post a belly picture. You look so good. I hope you feel good. I am watching Lauries kids when they go on their trip so if you are around we will have to get together.
