Since Richfield got quite a bit of snow this year.. we thought we'd take advantage of it and go up into the mountains to go sledding and snowboarding. Unfortunately because I am pregnant, I didn't get to do either, but I got to ride on the back of the 4-wheeler and take pictures. It was soo windy and cold! And now I have a cold because of it.. oh well :) I loved playing in the snow again.. reminded me of growing up in Michigan. It was a fun day.. until I accidently dropped my glove into the port-a-potty! OOPS! haha.. oh well!
Travis and I just got back from Richfield, Utah- where his family lives. We spent yet another Christmas with them (Mom and Dad- we are going to try our hardest to make it to Michigan next year!) We had a wonderful time.. Travis has a fun family. I can't believe Christmas is over with already! But only 2 more months and I will be able to have another gift- a new little baby!! :)

Here is Graham at a few days old.. (sorry I'm posting him so much- its more for people who know Kendra and want to see her baby). He is super blonde.. hardly any eyebrows or eyelashes yet :) He looks alot like his daddy, Caleb.. my mom sent me a video and he definately looks like Caleb.

So I'm starting to torpedo a bit.. definately feeling the effects! I went shopping yesterday and boy was my back and legs KILLING me afterwards!! Thank goodness for IcyHot... and a husband that is willing to massage you! :) (Thanks Trav) Geez, I remember when I used to be able to shop for hours and hours and never be effected... I never realized the difference it makes when your carrying around a luggage on the front of your body! Anyhoo- since I am 30 weeks now, I start seeing my midwife every 2 weeks.. getting close!

So, I have been getting various magazine subscriptions from the previous tenants of our apt here, among which was a Food & Family Magazine that had all kinds of yummy Christmas recipes in it! Super easy ones too... so I went nuts with the holiday treats the other day... here is a pic of the end product. I definately shouldn't be eating this much sugar, so I made up plates for the girls I VT.
I made fudge, truffles, peanut butter bars, and white chocolate raspberry cheescake bars... mmm mm good!
Also, we found a place to tuck our tiny Christmas tree into our cramped apt. Kinda works out nice that we have such a small tree! I love having the Christmas tree lights on at night.. brings the calm Christmas spirit into our home.
And the only place I could fit my nativity set is on our kitchen table! (No biggie- we never use it anyway!) I love this nativity. My mom bought it for me last Christmas.. I love how the characters have real materials on them for clothes and accents. I think its so important to have the Nativity set up every year to remind us why we even have Christmas in the first place... I love the Lord so much and I wish more people in the world would realize the real meaning of Christmas. My life would be so different if I had never learned about Jesus' life and example.. I hope I can live my life somewhere close to the extent he lived his.

Welp- Travis celebrated his big 30th birthday this weekend!! Crazy huh?? "He's growing up so fast!" We had a blast.. We went out to all-you-can-eat Crab Leg with a bunch of friends, then afterward, we headed to The Bite of Las Vegas. The Bite is a huge food and music event that they have every year. Some of the bands were Lifehouse (travs fav), PUddle of Mudd, Secondhand Serenade, etc etc. It was PACKED. Needless to say, after standing for 3 hours, my legs were Killing me! I was so ready to go by the end, but it was fun.
Trav's family came into town as well, so on Sunday (his official birthday) we had them all over for homemade cheesecake and ice cream. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRAVIS! I LOVE YOU!

3D Face w/his mouth open- he kept covering his face w/his hands, and rubbing his eyes! It was so cute!
.. And last but not least.. proof that he was a boy- it was quite obvious. I noticed right away :)
Well, we were sooo set on a girl- name picked out, thinking of girl scrapbook pages, nursery ideas.. etc etc.. but come to find out, we are having a boy! Oh well.. we are still excited! Baby is super healthy so that's the most important thing.. He kicks alot every day. He is definately "alive and kicking" (no pun intended). Well, once we agree on a name (having a harder time than w/a girl name) we will let you know!
