Ultrasound Day!

I have been nervous and anxious all day...well... until 2:30 anyway. It was getting to the point where I did not care what I was going to have, I just had to know! Well, with in the first few moments we learned a few little things about our new little baby. First, this kid likes to suck it's thumb.... and second, we are adding another boy to our family. To say I was totally happy about adding more testosterone to the family would be a total lie. But the more I think about it, the more excited I get about having 3 little guys 3 years old and under growing up together. Plus, on Sunday, when I got my 2 boys dressed for church I thought, "Well, if it is another boy, at least I make some of the cutest boys around!". I just keep thinking, Justin and I are not done with our family, we have at least another couple of tries for a girl :) Additionally, we could not be happier to report that everything looked great in the ultrasound! Baby boy is healthy and already super active. He was great at letting the ultrasound tech take every measurement needed and we are SO SO SO incredibly blessed to be able to bring another healthy child into our family.

Here are some pics I took on Sunday, I just could not resist (even if it made us late to church!).
Cohen is getting so much better at not cheesing it at the camera, but Jace is just starting. Someday I will have that perfect picture of all natural smiles from my kids with out having to trick them into it!

I have put 2 new soups on my recipe blog. I made them for our Relief Society activity and they were a huge success! Try them out.... they are ummm...ummm... delicious!

I am just about to go nuts here! We find out what we are having in one week from TODAY! I am just dying with anticipation of seeing if this little kid I am feeling all the time is a little Packer Lewis or a Katy Coleen (those are the names for the moment right now anyway). And now that my vinyl order for my ward is finally done, I will try to get updated from our Utah trip!
So for now, any one want to take a guess as to what we are having. I do have to brag that out of the last 20 or so pregnancies we have heard about from family and friends we have guessed them all but ONE correctly, I just wish I could have an inkling as to what mine was cause I have no IDEA! So come on people, share, what do you think we are having?

So I am really getting into the whole embellishment thing with my clothes and thought I would take a look at some ideas online. I came across this one and had to try it. It only took me a little over an hour to do (great nap time activity) and I think it made this plain boring shirt look so much cuter!
I swear this is turned the right way in my pic folder, why does blogger do this sometimes!
