Schoooools OUT for the Summer!

I'm fairly certain that title is from some 80's song that has been running through my head for the last week. Anyone else know what it is? I sure don't.

Anyway, I'm done!! Unfortunately Erik has class throughout the summer with only a short break in August. My last class for the school year was last night! My cohort went out to Old Chicago after class to just hangout and say good-bye for the summer. It was fun (except it was hard to get out of bed this morning)! Unfortunately, I still have a very large paper, called a prospectus, due in two weeks. I would like to get it off my plate SOON so I can focus on other the baby who is on his way! (due a month from this last Monday!)I don't have 'official pictures' here with me. We need to upload them off the camera. So, this is a picture from my cell phone, that I just took (with the one handed photo, I couldn't get the full image -but the belly is the most important part, right?) I'm feeling pretty large these days. I have been able to keep the weight down, but there is no doubt that I'm nine months pregnant!. Oh yeah, and my ankles are huge! I don't like it at all. In fact, I had a minor whinny breakdown last night in front of poor Erik. At least I admitted that it was happening at the time. This picture does not really give the full effect either, but you get the idea.We're excited for this little guy to make his appearance...I just don't feel ready quite yet! So, if he can hold off until I finish my paper and we get a few more baby items, like the car seat, we'll be in a much better place overall!

April Flowers Bring May Showers??

Well, it has been raining a lot here in MN these days, but I am talking about Baby Showers. It seems that this baby is being 'showered on' all this month! All the baby showers we are having happen to be in May. It's wonderful to celebrate with friends and family.

Although my camera didn't make it out of the case, here are a couple pictures from a friends and family shower that my sister hosted in Owatonna. Thank you Jana for hosting (and Bev for providing the location)!
Gift "Helpers" -my niece and 2nd cousin helped pass gifts to me

Little MN Twins gear all the way from FL! --Thanks Brenda
(and Margo, for the photo opp)
We are very excited for this little guy to come and so happy that so many people are excited with us! Thank you, everyone, for all of your love, support and prayers! We are grateful for each of you!
