Can't I just post twice a year?

Jut kidding!
I have not been feeling up to much of anything these days. I've had terrible anemia with this pregnancy. It makes me so tired! It's been bad enough that I have to go to the hospital once a week and get an IV of iron. It's been horrible. I was only supposed to have 5, but they say I need 3 more. I just pray that these are the last.

We had an ultrasound in April. The tech said it's a girl, but they couldn't get a really good picture. I'll have another ultrasound in 3 weeks so they can double check. Other than that, everything looked great.

My grandmother (my Dad's mom) passed away at the end of February so we headed to San Diego. It was beautiful there, but it was a sad reason for going. I was so happy to be at the beach. It is where I feel the happiest and most at peace. I was happy to learn that it was my grandmother's favorite place also. She would have been happy we spent some time there.

Addison had her 2nd birthday. She's a nutty little girl. SO much personality. I love it! My biggest fear about my kids' personalities is that they would be dull. How could I stand it? No problem there yet though.

We are planing for the arrival of the new baby. Only a little while left. I am 27 weeks along. Hopefully this one doesn't come too early. We don't want a repeat of Addison's birth! Sheesh!

We had a great vacation in Zion's National Park in April. It is pretty much the only trip we are going on this year. All of our usual travel time is too close to the baby coming. Next summer we'll make up for it though.

I just got called into the Relief Society Presidency. I am excited. I have never been there before and I am excited to learn a lot of new things. And I know it's where the Lord wants me to serve right now. I will miss primary terribly though! I loved it there.

I had a wonderful mother's day and birthday. My sweet hubby and kids do so much to make me feel loved and appreciated. Among my gifts (for both) were a Lisa Leonard necklace with all 3 kids' names, an iPOD touch, gift cards, 3 (THREE!!) prenatal massages with my friend Annette, an altered canvas with photos of everyone, and a fun date to dinner and then a movie at home. Love this time of year!

There you go! There's an update! Talk to you in 6 months! HAHAHA!
Here are a few photos also.
