moose sighting!

On a walk today, we saw 4 moose (or is that meese?!?!?!?!) by the river...luckily we were way up on the road looking down. These photos show no justice to the grandness of these animals. One of the bulls had a rack you usually only see in the hunting mags!
Caleb was keeping a careful eye and ear out for the moose, as well!
some of you thought that I was going to put up a pic of myself, didnt ya????

8 months!!! can all be the judge? who in this photo is 6 mos, 8 mos, and just plain full of beer???
I also included another moose photo for all you wildlife enthusiasts out there!!!

Home for the "Folks'' 40th anniversary!

Mom and dad welcomed us all home with open arms for their 40th anniversary. Rachel, Mary Beth, Lori and I have been planning that party for a long long, I didnt even know that I was pregnant yet...or was even going to be eventually!! hahaha

There was so much food, events, and fun that it took Todd and I a week to recover. Todd and I were priveleged to a tour of Standard Process-our supplement "sponsor" (as Todd calls it), on Thursday, Lori in on Friday morning with grocery shopping with Dad... That afternoon was filled with more fun and food when Mary Beth and Mom and Dad joined Lori, Todd and I for happy hour (yes, I was the DD). We picked Con up that evening and got home just in time for Rachel, Rog, Gma mimi and Owie to pull in the driveway.

Saturday morning, the guys all went golfing and the girls went to a shower for yours truly! (I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life! Thank you all!) After naps and walks in the forest, we all went out for dinner in Milwaukee-see the photos for the group shots and to see the "creepy pope" pics.

Sunday was Milwaukee Brewers day where we tailgated and all got our fill of sun, beer, food, and bad baseball (it was really fun, just a really bad game! hahahaha)!!!

Ready for another 40 mom and dad???????

"Auntie" Emmy here for a visit!

My sister Mary Beth came for a visit and helped me with a few things-including relaxing and getting sun! We rode bikes, ate yummy food, played with the doggies and Em climbed a mountain...finally someone else in my family knows what it feels like to be on top of the world!
PS-Just so you all know-that is an O'Doul's in my hand...

getting ready for our little girl

I have finally put together the special room for our little one...I am at the point that I just cannot wait!!! 8 weeks! It will go so fast, so I am desperatley trying to hold on to the feelings that I am having and spending time watching our little one "playing" inside my tummy! I dont believe that anything else could be so amazing... I will miss it for sure. A friend of mine said that she sometimes wakes up thinking that she feels her baby move inside-but her baby was born 3 weeks ago!!
