apology, birth announcements and Christmas cards woo thats alot

I guess I should take back what I wrote yesterday. Scott went and got me a water last night, Let me sleep in today, woke the girls up etc. for school because he knew I had a rough night. And brought dinner home last night. I feel kind of bad now. Like I said Hormones.

Also I added a couple free templates to my digiscrapbook site and will update hair tips today.

I also have a new line of baby announcements templates and Christmas card templates up at my store. I will post the link below. They are in a photoshop format, I am always willing to help with directions.

All you do is use my color scheme or choose your own, Change your text and add your pictures. Walaa you can go have them printed at walmart or wherever you like to do it. That is it. I have posted examples below. I am hoping this will earn me a little bit of extra money while I am not working the next month and a half because of the baby.




yes I know those arent our names, It is just an example card.

getting it off my chest.

o.k So I think I can write this because Scott hardley ever looks at our blog. Is it me or do I have the most insensitive husband around? Don't get me wrong Scott does a lot for our family and around the house, but when it comes to me and this pregnancy, no sympathy whatsoever.
I was only planning on working through next week. It has been harder and harder for me to stand and do hair, lean over the sink etc. He thinks I should work until I have the baby. He has no idea the pain it causes me. Not to mention I would hate to go into labor doing someones hair. Can you see me rushing to the hospital, with a client having a full head of foils in her hair? I know he is stressed over finances. We are in a really tight spot right now. But geez. It use to be that if I said I was thirsty he would get me a drink of water. Now he sits there watching t.v. While I get my fat pregnant butt out of bed and waddle down the stairs to get my own. Usually with him yelling will you grab me one too?
I get emails from a baby website telling me what to expect every week. this weeks said Stay off your feeet as much as possible etc... I sent it to Scotts email and highlighted it. He thought that was pretty funny.

Then I think it is weird he never wants to talk to the baby or feel him kick or anything. I know he is excited but I don't know. I just had to get it off my chest, because I am in tears about everything lately. I cannot wait to get my hormones back to normal.

I am excited

yes for the baby to come, but also because I have been doing a lot more studying on Photography. I have a few backgrounds coming. I have mostly done outside photoshoots. So I am excited. I also will be getting some new lighting. That is if Santa gets my list. I also have started a cool thing with photography and digital backgrounds. you can view my photography site to right to see what it is.
I know...I know just another project to get into. But I really enjoy it.

The girls are in School and I am getting a lot done. These next weeks will be very nerving for me, not knowing when the baby will arrive or if I will make it to my C-section date. I Just have been praying all goes well.
I also had a fun little visit with my friend Kelsi from St. George. Believe it or not I forgot to take pics. She brought by a baby gift. Thanks for the visit and gift Kelsi.
And thanks to my friend Mandi who also brought by a ton of stuff I needed.

Girls First day of school

The girls posted their pics on their blog PLEASE go comment on there blog too.

McKenzie on Her first day of 3rd grade

McKenzie loves casual sporty wear. It took us weeks just to find one pair of pants that she liked. It was really frustrating. MaKayla loves clothes, the dressier the better. We were finished with her shopping in about 4 hours.

Our last weekend getaway!

Well on a spur of the moment we decided to get away for the weekend. The girls start school Monday and we really only went camping once and to a condo so we didn't have a lot of vacations. With the baby coming we know we wont be traveling much throughout the coming year, maybe a few dance competitions will be it so We took the girls to our first stop the pool In Kamas, Utah. They love it there. The waterslides and diving boards, plus the lazy river are their favorites.

Our next stop was Park City, Utah. I love it there. I wish we could move there it is so pretty. We went to the outlet stores for a little shopping. Which by the way it is not fun to walk those being over 8 months pregnant. But we got a few items and went and stayed a Best Western. They had a really nice pool and we had a balcony room which was nice. The girls went out on the balcony and spied at all the swimmers. Especially the late nighters. Good thing there were no skinny dippers that night.
We made it home and now it is back to reality, back to work & School and our busy lives. But it sure was fun to get away, even if it was for only one weekend.

Oh and sorry to dissapoint you all that I am not in any pictures. I knew you all wanted to see a lady about to give birth in her maternity suit, with her swollen feet and chubby face, but maybe next time.

Breaking Dawn


So I just finished Breaking Dawn yesterday. It was different then what I expected, but had the out come I wanted at the end. So I was satisfied. I was blown away by a few things in the book. I do not want to say though for fear of ruiming it for people that have not read it. What did you guys think that have read it?

Baby Shower & Thank you!

I just wanted to thank everyone that helped and came to my baby shower this last weekend. I had a lot of fun and was spoiled with darling gifts for baby Crew. Thanks for thinking of me!

my mom did such a wonderful job with the shower. She went overboard as usual. The cake and center piece diaper bear were darling. Thank you mom & Jesicca for giving me the shower.
