Latest projects!

These are my latest projects. I think they are so cute! I saw a newborn baby in one of these tutu's and I thought it was the cutest thing ever, so... I HAD to have one, so I went to the store and bought all the stuff to make it and walla. My baby is going to have one too!
I saw these shirts on the Internet and thought they would be a fun project to try. Katie and I did them today and I think they turned out pretty cute. Colter thought it was awesome that he had a shirt with his name on it. He did ask me where the "Q" was???
(he spells his name c-o-l-t-e-r Q) He says that "Q" is his favorite letter and that one should go after his name??? Who knows about this kid, one day will both figure it out! Anyway I thought these were fun and cute. I did get a little too much spray on Colter's and my bottle leaked down the front a little, but all in all, they turned out cute! FUN!!!

Happy 4th Birthday Colt!

We celebrated Colter's 4th birthday on Saturday! I can't believe my baby is four. CRAZY!!! Wow how time flies. I remember the day we brought him home like it was yesterday and since then there has never been a dull or quiet moment in my life. Ha ha, and I would not change it for anything!!! Darin had to study most of the morning, so we celebrated a little later in the day. Our friends the Henrie's came over and we had "monster cake" and ice cream cones. Colt loved every single present he got (you'd think he'd never received one in his life before.) After every present he would say, "Wow, ooh I just can't believe it!" He was so excited to turn four. He kept asking me if his sister was gonna be here for it. He told me that he was so excited for his party and that he couldn't wait for Jack, Kenli, and Max to get here. I had to remind him that we live too far and that they still loved him, but they just couldn't be here. (it made me sad, but then everyday that goes by means the closer we are to being done.) Colt said he couldn't be four until he blew out his #4 candle on his cake, so after he blew it out he says, "Mom, I'm four now!" He is such a fun, cute, loveable, and very particular boy. He is such a joy to watch grow up. I could not imagine my life with out you rueski! We love you so much. Your BEST my friend!!! HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY!!!

Relief Society Birthday

For our Relief Society Birthday party night we did a theme with President Hinckley's "Be's" and it turned out so cute! I made these cute bee cupcakes and michelle made a sunflower cake and then we made wood cubes with the "be grateful, be prayerful, be humble and be smart"on them in vinyl for the activity. We had such a fun time and the decorations were so cute. Happy "Bee-utiful" Birthday Relief Society!

Witches in the doctor's office!

It was so funny, the other day I had a doctor's appointment and Colt came with me. They have a big basket of books, so he always looks forward to the "Thomas' book when we get there. We walk in and he heads straight for the basket and we sit down and he looks up and there was a nun sitting right in front of us and his eyes got real big and he says, "mom, you think hers a witch?" It was SO funny, but a little embarrassing! Being from Utah we don't see many nuns, but out here there a little more common. Ha ha. I had to quietly tell him that she belongs to a different church and she is a really sweet person, but as I was doing that another nun came out of the back room and the look on his face was priceless. I think it spooked him to think we were going to have our baby at a place that had witches!

We had a 30 week ultrasound yesterday, and everything looks GREAT! I couldn't be more happy. I had two major concerns 1: Is it still a girl? 2: Is she healthy? Not in that order, but we were glad to learn she didn't grow anything extra in the last few weeks and she is healthy! They said she is measuring big about 11 days further along then we think, but I'm sure she'll make her grand appearance when she feels like it. I just want to say how thankful I am for my family and how thrilled and excited I am to be a new mom again, I have to admit there were a few days when I didn't think Darin and I would get the chance to be parents again, but I am so thankful for the power of prayer! They might not be answered when you think they should be, and sometimes we wonder why such things are happening to us, but I'm a strong believer that EVERYTHING happens for a reason and I can't wait to meet our sweet little angel!
