Seems like we've had more snow this year than recent years.  It keeps snowing before it has a chance to melt. The inversion did hang a round for quite a while and it's finally clear so we went out to play in some fresh snow. Had to have hot chocolate afterward. All Harper wanted, really, were the marshmallows :).

Drum roll please...

Here it goes. We are so excited, come Aug. 2nd, Harper will have a sibling! I can not tell you how much this boy just needs a buddy.  His mom is a little bit of a recluse and mostly quiet in large crowds, and don't get me wrong, he can do his own thing, but I think he takes a little more after his Dad in this area. He loves being with people.

I've been feeling bad for my family. I haven't cooked much these past 3 months. My stomach turns when I think about food. Can't even open the fridge with out feeling it. Haven't puked thank goodness.  Oh, and ps you know you're pregnant when you cry watching Shark Tank because a stay at home mom scored a deal with a shark for her dipped pretzel business. :/

I do feel I may disappear from the planet after the second comes. I know I'm exaggerating but thats how I feel. Like I said, here it goes.

A Lot Can Happen in Almost a Year

I won't try to bring you completely up to speed. Here are a few things that have happened in 2012 and early 2013.

Johnny got into the MBA program at the UofU and he is currently in his 2nd semester out of 6 I think. It is a two year program including summers so I think that adds up correctly.  I'm glad it's him and not me cause I don't think I would like it one bit.  He is awesome working at LDS Hospital full time as the Unit Education Consultant (I think that's his official title)  and going to school full time.

Harper is 2 and sometimes I don't think there is a mean bone in his body.  Yeah, he has the usual tantrums and occasional experimental hitting but I hope he never learns to really want to hit or push anyone.  The poor guy just got out of the hospital after a 3 1/2 day stay because of an infection that grew in his neck.  They did minor surgery to drain it and it looks like we are in the clear and getting back to normal life.  He is slightly traumatized by the whole experience.  To even try to brush his teeth takes some coaxing. If he is scared or wants to get out of us doing something to him (change a diaper, clip his nails etc.) he has now learned to say "I wan cuddle, I wan cuddle". Poor thing.  It was all very stressful but we are beyond grateful that's all that was wrong with him. Meeting other parents at Primary Children's made you sad to hear they had been there a few days short of a month.  We got out of there in less than a work week!  We are so happy to be home.

We got our poor Tito neutered. Not the most exciting news but I got really sad and nervous for him the day of.  He is perfectly fine. :)

We moved to Sandy, UT.

Johnny and I ran the Pocatello Marathon.  His second time and my first.  We both would like to do another one but with a kid this small and both of us training it made it difficult.   We may have to stagger the years we each train for one.  

Here are a few pictures .....
