More Belly Pics for Kelsey!

I am now feeling large and dealing with rib pains and stretch marks, but I am loving being pregnant and I love feeling my little guy move inside of me. I am getting more and more nervous, people keep asking if I am ready for the little one to come out and, I just have to say that I am scared of labor and then taking care of a newborn baby so I'll just stick with being pregnant for now, I think I'm pretty good at it.

Tyco Track

Andrew's mom has been working hard to clean out her storage room, this means that almost every time she comes to Utah we get boxes of stuff to go through. About a year ago she brought us a race track that Andrew played with when he was little. The only problem was that there were no cars to go with the track. Andrew tried to find some cars on the internet but the ones listed didn't seem to have sizes on them so he was hesitant to order any of them.

While I was out of town this last weekend Andrew went to his brother's house and found a box that said "Andrew's stuff" on it and when he went through it he found two cars to go with the track! I came home on Wednesday to find the track set up in the living room. We played with it a little and I did laugh hard but the best was when Carson came over and he and Andrew raced for over an hour. I couldn't breath at times because I was laughing so hard!

The boys take their racing seriously, meaning if your car flies off of the track on a turn then you must knock the other person's car off at the soonest opportunity. Soon they were building a double loop and attaching the guard rails, pens, pencils, highlighters and even my crochet hook were utilized in supporting the track. A good time was had by all. I can't wait to take the track to my parent's house for Christmas to see all the boys race then.

No More Mystery!

Today Andrew and I went to the exciting ultrasound appointment!! We found out that the baby is a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As soon as the nice girl started searching around the little guy's legs Andrew and I both knew it was a boy even though it took a while to get a good picture. He didn't like being looked at though and the harder she tried to get a good 3D picture the more he just curled up into a ball, hiding in the placenta with his hands in front of his face. We are both getting more excited now that we know what to plan for. Andrew has told me how happy he is lots of times today.

When I called Stacy to tell her that we are expecting a boy Payton asked if they could come to the hospital to see the baby tomorrow. Ha!! I told her that Christmas should come and go before she can see the baby.

Iron Chef???

Last night after dinner I was looking up recipes for sticky buns because we were given a bunch of pecans from Andrew's grandfather and that sounded like a yummy way to use them. Many of the recipes had mixed reviews and lots of them took much more time than I was willing to invest. Andrew kept saying he could just make them from scratch without a recipe, I was skeptical but he said if you add enough cinnamon and brown sugar you can't go wrong.

So while I kept looking up recipes Andrew headed into the kitchen to get started. He toasted the pecans and added flour and eggs and margarine. He kept narrating as if he were on a cooking show, "we'll just add another 1/4 cup of flour so we get that nice doughy consistency." After making a few suggestions and being assigned to make the glaze I was given the title of the "Trusty Assistant."

Andrew was so cute and so excited about making the treat, and I must admit except for the bread being a little thick Andrew's sticky bun creation was pretty tasty.

While cleaning up Andrew said he should be on Iron Chef, now I have never seen the show but I am pretty sure he has a little way to go before he is ready for that.

July Adventures!

For the 4th of July, well actually the 5th we made homemade ice cream. I hope the next recipe we try turns out way better though because I was not a fan of this one. Andrew made us yummy turkey clubs because his pregnant wife craves them quite frequently. I have to include the picture because he for some reason likes to document meals. He's cute!!

Hobo dinners, again with the documenting meals, he asked me to take this pic. They were way yummy though, he did a great job!

Andrew LOVES camping, he seriously gets so excited about any type of camping trip! Last month we headed way beyond the crowded Yankee Meadows to a little camping spot way up in the mountain. We planned to hike a little but it started raining way hard before we had the chance to get started, it was still great to be together and to see Andrew so happy!


I know I shouldn't complain about free couches for my wonderful sister and her new husband but I think this is total proof that some people should not own pets... or furniture for that matter. Luckily the couches have been cleaned twice and smell a lot better. Someone owes us dinner!

Sick I know!!
