Soooo many boys!

Craig came into town for a couple days to go to some Apx licensing trainings, and have some fun with me and Aaron! We got a Wii from Aaron's brother and the 3 of us spent some good time attempting to golf.. and I get really mad at that "club."
We had some cousins and friends come over for game night! Of course the boys jumped at the chance to play Acquire...

And they get quite silly..
This happened to be Craig's first date off the mission!! Annalisa on the right is a friend from my Lab that I called to come and hang out with us and be Craig's date. Unfortunately Craig still doesn't quite know what to do with himself, especially if a cute girl in involved... But her, me, and Jenna watched some GREAT episodes of What Not to Wear while our boys gamed it up!
I AM APX!!! Aaron took Craig out knocking on Monday to get him some preseason practice. This is a GREAT pic!!

We had our first doctor's visit this week to check on the little grape growing in my stomach! It kinda makes a difference actually hearing the heartbeat and confirming that there is indeed something alive and healthy in there! It's just getting more exciting although I want to jump through the next 7 months and just have a baby already.

So yesterday, after skipping class because I felt some of that morning sickness that creeps up, I crashed on the couch and turned on a show that I normally hate: Baby Story on TLC. K I do not care about other people's baby's birth and I for sure DON'T want to watch it! But for some reason I got curious (probably because of recent anxiety I've felt about labor and delivery), and watched a lady giving a freakin water birth.. ew, I would never do that.

Thinking it looked so painful and horrible, then as soon as the baby was born, I started BAWLING for like ten minutes! I thought it was the sweetest thing ever and couldn't help it! There is no mistaking I'm an emotional pregnant wreck, but it just made me that much more excited.

Well, he made it home!! Elder Packard pretty much looks the same- still in shape and everything even after 2 years of driving everywhere in South Carolina. His homecoming talk was this last Sunday and it was great! It's so fun to have him back because it was the first time in YEARS that all the kids were together since we've all been on and off on missions. Craig is coming down to Utah this weekend for Apx licensing meetings because he is coming out with us to sell in Florida this summer!!! I'm extra stoked!!
My three brothers, James, Kent and Craig, then my mom and me with baby (half) sister Ali, and my little sister Melanie

Aaron and Luke in the car on the way to the airport to see Craig. So cute! Luke was especially happy to see us because we brought him pirate legos for his 4th birthday. =)

My brother, Craig is getting home from his mission TOMORROW!
For the past 2 years, he's been serving in the South Carolina Columbia mission and we have been counting down the days. =) Me and Aaron are headed to Yakima, WA this weekend to welcome him back and spend time with my family. I will post some good pics after our trip

Well not that it's a super huge surprise to most people, but we're having a BABY! I am really bad at holding in secrets, and I was also anxious to find out quite early that we were pregnant- about as early as the stick would indicate positive! So... yay!! I might as well address what everyone has asked or will ask anyway:
1. Where we planning this? Aaron wasn't, I was. HA! No, just kidding... mostly.
2. When am I due: October... a loooooong ways away it seems, so that means hot and humid mid-pregnancy this summer in Florida.
3. Wanting a boy or girl: Wellllll, Aaron seems to be wanting a boy, and I kinda wanted wanted a boy to be the oldest, but then again, when I think about decorating (her) room, and putting a bow and cute dresses on a little girl, I can't help but want that!! I'm already in love with this girly pink and green baby room from Pottery Barn Kids. PLUS both Aaron and I have had dreams that it was a girl. Soooooo...... who's to say right?
