"Simplify Christmas.... Celebrate Christ!"
"A final gospel truth that will contribute to our understanding of and hence the quality of our marriages relates to the degree in which we involve the Savior in our relationships as husbands and wives. As designed by our Heavenly Father, marriage consists of our first entering into a covenant relationship with Christ and then with each other. He and his teachings must be the focal point of our togetherness. As we become more like him and grow closer to him, we will naturally become more loving and grow closer to each other"

I'm sorry all of my posts have been about the babies but lets face it, it's a pretty exciting time! We've had SO much going on lately. Which has been nice to help the time pass! But now that I spend my days mostly at home by myself I'm sure it's going to slow down!
I was so very spoiled (or should I say these babies are spoiled) because we had 3 baby showers! One at my mom's with my grandma and aunts, one in Morgan over thanksgiving with Rob's aunts and cousins and one in St. George with all of my friends here! :) I am pretty sure I collected more than enough goods to get us started! After I put most of the clothes away there was about 100 outfits for these little monkeys!
I have been feeling pretty good considering! About a month ago I was having constant contractions and was told by the Dr. to pretty much be on bed rest for a bit. But weeks went by and I have felt much better and still have a lot of energy. I am down to my weekly visits so we'll just go a week at a time with what I can and cannot do on a daily basis. I've had a great support with my friends keeping me company and taking good care of me. But I really think I am lucky to feel as good as I do. I may not sleep well and may not be about to get up from the couch without some help but it could always be worse!
Picture of most of the group at the shower! Thanks again SOO much Jamee, Megan and Katie for all your hard work for the shower!
Here's a belly pic at 28 weeks, every day it just get bigger! I've gained 40 pounds already and can't believe how fast it all happened! But as long as these two are healthy thats all that matter!
Also, the nursery! That's been my big project and I've loved doing it! I'm not quite finished yet but just needed to take a break!
This was taken at the shower in Vegas! Thanks Katie and Courtney for doing this for me! These babies will LOVE their aunties! (and now that I see this picture I wish I wouldn't have listened when Rob told me I should cut my hair!!)
I feel like I could type for hours about all that we've been up to, but it's nothing that grand! Just busy stuff! Only one more week of school for us and then we will love to be able to spend time together again! Robbie is so busy with work and finishing the semester he deserves a break! I hope everyone is doing wonderful and enjoying the holiday season!
