Checking in...
Well, I guess it's time to post again-- I know the disappointing feeling of seeing the same last entry every time you go to someone's blog. So I'll give a brief listing of local news.
1. Amelia is checking in at about three pounds, or three jars of peanut butter. We were surprised by how substantial that feels in your hands. Apparently, that is just right for 30 weeks.
2. We are going up to Portland tomorrow until Saturday, to celebrate Jeff's sister's daughter's (also called our niece) birthday. We will also spend a day with Joy and Chris and kids. This will be the last trip out of here for a little while, and we are looking forward to spending time with family.
3. The weather is really warming up, it's 82 degrees right now. I am trying to finish up the gardening tasks on my mental list before it gets too hot (and while I can still stand back up from sitting on the ground!)
4. Jeff is on spring break, and we have enjoyed being together all day working on projects and eating meals outside.
5. I have a rather nasty cold, but it did get me breakfast in bed yesterday! (More points for spring break...)
I'd like to say that I am really enjoying being able to read everyone elses' news and see pictures of what is going on in your heads, homes and yards!

Thanks Ariana, for your nice update. I will pick up 3 boxes of butter and see how heavy Amelia is right now. Glad you're having a very nice spring break!

Say hi to Joy and Chris and the kids for me! We might even get up there ourselves this summer and I'd like to have a tea party with Yzzy.

I still have your beautiful cake plate and I'm sorry about that! Maybe since you're going to be gone until Saturday I'll keep it a little longer and use it at the reception for G and C on Saturday, OK? :-) Have a nice trip!

Hi A. Robin,
Actually, that cake plate and spatula belong to H. Shack-- I borrowed it from her for G. So feel free to return it to either one of us, and I'm glad you can get one more use out of it!

Ariana, thanks for the informative blog! =0) I love going "blog hopping" and finding new entries.
Have fun in Portland and I'm sure we'll see you when you come back!

Ah, yes, a new entry is so nice to find! Another cold?! Oh no! Have a lovely time with family!

WE WANT A PHOTO OF YOU AND AMELIA...and no, not when she is born.

Let's see that belly so I can feel smaller than you!! :)

It's fun to get your update, Ariana! Have a great time on your trip!

Yeah, Carol is right! I am having such a hard time picturing you pregnant. It seems impossible that you will ever have trouble getting up off the ground after gardening.

Ariana said...

Ok,I will post a picture... sometime... I need to work first on getting one, and then getting one that I feel OK about. The longer I wait, the smaller you will feel, Carol!

Thanks for the update. I enjoy checking in. Only 10 more weeks, whoohoo.
