Well, we made it through John's 32nd birthday. We celebrated with a nice home made dinner of stuffed chicken breasts and wine (for him). That is the fake stuff in my wine glass, I just wanted to pretend. We got out the good dinner plates and lit some candles. It was a nice evening. John and his nephew Josh spent a weekend snowboarding at Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee. I'm thinking they had a GREAT time. John has just signed up for a race in June called the Wasatch Back. He is on a team of 12 and it is a relay race from Logan, UT to Park City, UT and then over to Salt Lake City. He's excited to get training and has been running a lot lately. Our birthing class has been going well and we are so grateful for it. It's really making us feel prepared for labor! We've been getting the baby's room all set up and are really anxious to meet him! I'm feeling great most days but get tired easily. Starting to feel ready to get rid of this belly!

I've been a bad girl. Slacking on the blog, I know. We had a fabulous Christmas in Michigan and spent lot's of time with our families. We're getting excited to meet our little man! We've been spending most of our time getting things ready for the baby's arrival. We made a trip to Portland to visit friends for Thanksgiving and had a blast. We can't wait to do it again. I'm starting classes next week and should be done with my temp job by the end of January and will wait after the boy comes to find something else. Things are going well with Johns job, they are keeping him busy. He's gotten out to snowboard once and I think he's going to go up to Jackson Hole this weekend with his nephew Josh. We started taking a birthing class called The Bradley Method on natural child birth. I'm going to give it a shot with no medications and lot's of coaching from John. Should be interesting! That's all our news for now, I'll try to keep posting more often. Look for a new blog to come out soon as we no longer live in Alaska and the new one will be more centered around the baby because he is much more interesting than us.
