We decided to finally set up Jaron's bunkbed. Jaron loves it and wants to sleep on the top bunk, which mommy wasn't so sure about :)

I keep forgetting that he is 4 and a big boy.

This is one of his Christmas presents that he loves to wear. I don't remember what we were doing, but he decided that he needed to wear his tool belt and hat :)

I know what this picture looks like, and I promise it's not, he was trying to show his tools on his belt. What a ham. He just cracks me up :)

So we went to Oceanside last weekend and like dork I forgot my camera again! But we had so much fun. We spent Saturday at the beach boarding (Aaron and his parents) and playing in the waves (me and Jaron) It was so nice a relaxing. Then on Sunday we went whale watching. We only expected to see Grey whales, but instead we got to see two Fin Whales.

They were so beautiful and amazing, I had always wanted to see a whale, and now I have :) Then as we were "following" the whales we came across a large group of dolphins. I think I counted 20 or more. Everyone was looking ahead, but Jaorn and I ended up staying in the back of the boat and watched 3 or 4 right next to us. It was just amazing, Jaron loved it and of course so did I. Rick and Nancy got good pictures, so as soon as they email them to us I'll post them. But thank you Mom and Papa for meeting us there and we had a blast! I love this world and the amazing animals and beautiful scenery that God has given us.

A Late Birthday Party

So last Sunday, the 4th Jaron was talking to our friend Tricia telling her that he was now 4, but he didn't get a birthday cake :). Aaron and I just looked at each other, we are such bad parents. So we decided that we needed to do something for him. So I called my friends Lenaya and Carla whoes sons are in Jaron's calss ar church. So we invited the boys over for Saturday the 10th and had a lot of fun. We did a Lightning McQueen theme and he just loved it. Here are a few pictures:

Jaron opening his presents, Brandon wanted to help, James was so excited to see what Jaron got
I had a lot of fun making the cake, thanks to my sister Connie for the tips on how to do it.

My cute little man before his friends came over :)

Happy belated Birthday again Jaron !!!
I know he enjoyed himself though, he has been thankful for his Lightning McQueen Party every time he has prayed since :)

Panic Attack

OK so yesterday I was thinking and realized that I am 32 weeks and have NOTHING ready for this new little man. We don't have a car seat, a bed that will fit in our apartment, or really any clothes. (of course my baby shower isn't till the end of the month) and I don't have anything for me ready. So I just about panicked. I couldn't take my Christmas down because all the boxes were in storage and I couldn't get to where they were. I needed to get my filing together so I could start the new year out right and I couldn't go get that for various reasons. So I just felt like I had too much to do yesterday and couldn't do ANY of it. It was driving me crazy!!! When Aaron finally got off we went to Costco and Office Max to get the things I needed for filing and he promised to go get the boxes this morning so I could take down Christmas. Thankfully he was able to go get the boxes and so Christmas is down and I feel a little better. You know that feeling when things are just closing in on you, I love my Chirstmas decorations, but they really make things crowded. But anyways, I feel like I have a handle on things again and Aaron promised that we would go buy the car seat and the outfit to bring the baby home in this weekend :) My good friend Alison is giving me her bassinet and I will hopefully be able to find a few things that I need. So I feel like the panic attack is done for now, who knows, it might stike again. :)
I know I have 8 weeks left and I have good friends around me to help, it was just one of those days that I am so glad is over.

Christmas and New Year

OK so I was horrible and didn't get my camera out on Christmas, so we have no pictures :(. But we had a great time. We went to Beatty NV where Aaron's parents live and spent it with them and Aaron's sister Shauna and Ashley. We also got to see Aaron's grandma. Jaron got so many new things, one of his favorites is the tool set from Grandma Nancy and Papo, and of course his adventure set from Grandma Shelly and Grandpa Dave. He play with them all the time and loves putting stuff together. He has also really enjoyed the Tag ready system that Aaron and I got for him, so that;s cool. We hope that he will be reading soon :)
We went back to Beatty for New Years and again had a fun relaxing time. Aaron started training his dad on his instrument rating. But we also just got to hang out and spend time together. We didn't actually leave for Beatty till the morning of the 1st and we didn't stay up for the count down. Somehow we both feel like we didn't get closer on 08, I know that sounds funny, but we really feel like we missed something. So we'll have to stay up next year or at least watch the New York one :)
But we hope that everyone had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
PS I will be sending out a family card after the new little man is born and we get our family pictures. Sorry I didn't get to it this year.
