Blogging makes a difference...

OK so I'm either the best complainer or I have an awesome mom - a little of both I think. Anyway, you may remember from my last post that I complained about spending hours looking for a lemon dessert that doesn't even exist. Well, within a week of posting, my mom (thanks to her pack-ratish ways) was able to give me her last box of what I call "Heaven in a box". Thank you mom!! So we made it up last night, and let me tell you, it took all my will power to not eat the whole thing in one sitting. It is seriously soooo good! Good enough that Kraft Canada will be getting a call from me asking for more!!

Anyway, besides that, not much has been going on. Well with the exception of our 4 year wedding anniversary, a bridal shower for my soon to be sister in law and a BIG ultrasound!

So, 4 years ago Ben and I got married and it's been great ever since! I'm still sometimes surprised that I had enough sense when I was 19 to marry such an awesome guy...must have had some inspiration there. Anyway all I can say is that Marriage is great! Anyway, for those of you who actually came to my wedding you may remember that the highlight of the night was the chocolate fountain. I know, it stole my glory. Anyway, it was very awesome. So, to celebrate 4 happy years together, Ben bought us a chocolate fountain and we feasted on goodies all night. I would have taken pictures of that, but really, when you're eating chocolate, who has time for pictures? Not me. Oh well, the day before our anniversary was Valentines day and Ben was nice enough to buy my some gorgeous roses. Those I did take pictures of. Pretty hey?
Last Saturday we had a little shower for Yuka. It was loads of fun even though not very many people showed up. I guess a shower on a long weekend isn't the best idea. Anyway, we played fun games and we all got to know her a bit better. Can I just say - we are all so excited to have her in our family. She is seriously the kindest/sweetest person...and anyone who can put up with Jeff gets an A in my books. Anyway, we're looking forward to the wedding next week! It's going to be lots and lots of fun!! p.s. that's Yuka in the front with the pink balloon.
Oh and finally...last week we had our 18/19 week ultrasound and everything looks perfect! It is seriously so nice to have a normal ultrasound. I've spent way too many hours in doctors offices as the "interesting" or "weirdest" or "most high risk" case. It was nice to have someone say "everything looks normal". That is a phrase I will never take for granted. Anyway, looks like we're having a GIRL!! So far we're three for three. Anyway, I couldn't be happier and although I know that Ben is trying to think of ways to turn her into a boy, he is still very excited. We went shopping last weekend for baby stuff and Ben kept wondering off to find cute little dresses...so he's definitely pumped. Anyway, that's all the excitement for the week.

Awwww, how nice. And since I don't think you're a complainer, it must be that you have the most awesome Mom!

I love your comments about Ben, you guys are so fun to have around and we couldn't have chosen a better son-in-law if we'd been allowed to look. :)

And it's soooooo fun to think of Ben, who usually disappears to check out some power tool, disappearing to check out cute little dresses.

Anyway, I can hardly wait for the wedding. We love Yuka, she's so sweet and kind and so good for Jeff and it's obvious he's in love with her.

Love, Mom

Ok, so the dessert looks great. Have any left? That's a dumb question I know!! I love that close up you took of your roses. So nice, would you send me a full size shot of it. I think it would look great in a black frame and on MY WALL!!!!! Sounds like a busy weekend ahead for your family. And I know I'm a little biased but little girls are the BEST!!! ha ha.
