Charity Ball 2008

Well, Charity Ball was this past weekend. Not much to say about it.

We had several couples over for dinner before the ball. Here are a couple pictures...

We already love you, Baby Raines!

Baby Raines, you won't believe how much you're already loved! You will be surrounded by friends and family who love and care about you so very much. We already can't wait for your arrival -- and we haven't even met you yet!

Three girls in my Bible Study group are expecting. There must be something in the water we're drinking. It's the first child for each of us, so it's pretty neat that we're all experiencing this for the first time -- together.

Susie Gronseth (left) is due Aug 3rd (my and Andy's anniversary), I'm due May 12th (Mother's Day weekend), and Nicole Martin (right) is due any day now. Her Doctor thinks she might have the baby this week!
Our Bible Study group is literally growing leaps and bounds!!!

Give me some RED HOTS!!!!!

My cravings are getting stronger...I found myself driving to TWO (that's right, two) convenient stores just to find some Red Hots!!!
I've been craving them all week, but just had to have some today. Pretty sad, I know!

As you can see, Tootsie likes Red Hots too!
I'll be 28 weeks pregnant tomorrow.

Ski Trip to Perfect North

We met up with some friends in Louisville this weekend. They all went skiing at Perfect North, but I followed Dr Moore's advice not to ski in my 3rd tri-mester. : ) Instead, I stayed in Louisville and spent my time visiting Bryan & Shelley Duke (& Price), Kasey Jenks' baby (Presley), and shopping.
We had a great time. Thanks to Devon & Andrea Shelton for letting 9 people crash at their place for the weekend! They're great hosts! Here's a picture of the ski crew...

I'm so clumsy!!!

I keep dropping things...and these things are BREAKABLE!! I'll go on and blame it on the pregnancy, but honestly it's a far stretch since I've always been a bit clumsy.

On Saturday, Andy and I were cleaning the house. I dropped a beautiful glass pitcher we got for our wedding and it broke into a thousand pieces on the kitchen floor. I was SO bummed about breaking that pitcher. Thanks, Andy, for cleaning up my mess!

Then, last night, I dropped a coffee pot and --you guessed it--it broke into a thousand pieces TOO! What's wrong with me?!?!?!

At this rate, the baby won't even have a chance to break our nice things...I will have already broken it all!

Hmmmmmm.....I hope I don't drop our baby. SURELY I'll be more together by then. : )

Andy's new skis

I got Andy a set of skis for Christmas this year. He was so excited, he had to try them on in the living room. While we can't make the trip out west with Nick & Jen Thompson this year, we are going to Perfect North soon.

Maybe we can make the trip to Colorado next year. I hope so!
