Birthday Thanks!

I just wanted to thank everyone for all of the WONDERFUL birthday gifts!!!! I had an excellent day and Scott made this yummy cake. After much debate, I decided to go with the chocolate cake instead of cheesecake. His cakes always turn out better than mine, so he'll be making them from now on. Here's a pic of the flowers from Grandma Foulk. They made February a much brighter month!

Em is coming to Provo!!!

Ok. So really this is Emily's news, and I guess it's kind of old news at that, but she got into BYU!!! We are so excited for her to come to Provo in the fall. Always good to have family out here and potential babysitters! ;) haha. She doesn't know about that one yet. I just thought these cookies were the cutest things ever! Apparently my mom made some Y cookies to celebrate. Mom- where did you get this cookie cutter??? I need one.

Well, it's been a pretty busy week! I'm just now getting around to posting some of our pictures from Idaho. Scott and I went up to visit my grandparents and extended family over President's Day weekend. We had a great time and ate lots of wonderful food. :) It's so nice to have family that lives close enough to visit. Here are a few pictures from our trip!

Since Saturday was Valentine's day, Grandma and Grandpa bought us a fun heart-shaped pizza to celebrate. We had a festive dinner with some red punch and watched the BYU Basketball game. Go Cougars!

Scott and Grandpa spent some quality time working on computer stuff- a favorite hobby for both of them.

No vacation would be complete without a little hand and foot!!!

And these are a few of my cousins. They all have such great name suggestions for our little baby.

Look who we found when we just happened to be on Temple Square on Beth's birthday!!!! Ok, so maybe we made a special trip up there to see if we could find her and wish her a happy birthday. And maybe it was a little awkward to be sweeping temple square on the lookout the whole time. And for future reference only senior missionaries work in the Conference Center, and it's pretty awkward to try and come up with an excuse as to why you came in the conference center when you didn't want a tour. :) We weren't sure we were going to find her, so we gave her birthday cards to her companion from the MTC who we recognized. But then we got pretty lucky and saw her walking to her next post! I think she was pretty surprised!! We got to talk to her for a little bit. She seems to be doing really well, and had had a great birthday so far. Isn't she such a cute sister missionary!

It's official!

So...turns out I'm officially pregnant. Well, not that there was really any doubt, especially after the ultrasound, but I have just gotten so much bigger this past week. I had two "firsts" today at school that absolutely confirmed this fact. You can always count on the high school kids. They always pull through. :)

This morning I had the first absolute stranger ask if I was pregnant. I had no idea who this girl was, and she stopped me in the hallway and said, "Wait, are you pregnant?" When I told her yes she started freaking out- "That is so exciting!!!" I thought it was a little strange for her to freak out so much when she has probably never seen me before, but then again, she was probably about 14. So we'll cut her some slack.

Then, about 15 minutes later, one of my students walked by me and just started touching and patting on my belly. Scott warned me about this. I didn't believe him. I've known millions of pregnant women and I've never just walked up to someone and started touching her stomach! Weird! I mean, she's a really sweet girl and I really like her, I just never knew people actually did that. But then again, she is 14, so maybe that explains it once again.

So all in all, this was a useless post because you have found out two things that you knew from the beginning. (1) I am pregnant. (2) 14 year old girls do strange things. But, there you have my day, and every day for that matter. Although in class, I have to say that the 14 year old boys are worse. :)

The Start of Something New

Well...we've been meaning to start a blog for a little while now, and we finally got around to it. We'll see how this goes. :)

January has been a pretty eventful month. It began with a wonderful Christmas break in NJ with Janelle's family. We took a little trip up to NYC and the Statue of Liberty as well.

We couldn't have asked for a better end to the month either. On the 30th we found out that we were going to have a little baby boy, and on the 31st we got the news that Scott was accepted into grad school here at BYU!!! It should be a pretty eventful summer!
