So how has Audrey taken it.

So a lot of People have asked, "How has Audrey been taking to the new sibling?"
Well........It has been difficult at times.
Everything seems so different, now that there is a new center of attention. And although there is a new person on this crowded planet, the world seems so lonely.
And anger seems to slip out at times.
But for the most part, the overwhelming urge of self pity sets in.
and some tears are shed.
However when one looks to the future, only to look back, how do they want to see there life portrayed? This would be the pivotal moment.
In the end, compromises were made, Kisses were smooched, and a peace treaty has been made (only to end when Calvin is 4). All in all, Audrey loves her little brother "Baby Calvin," and enjoys being a big sister. Life is good. (Now if only Calvin knew what he was getting into!

Now life is good!

2 days to go

Here is a pic of me with two days to go. Hopefully he doesn't stay in too much longer, i'm done and don't know that I can get much bigger! I only wear my own clothing on Sundays, I might get some odd looks if I showed up in Stevens t-shirts and athletic shorts!

Battle Creek hike

It was so hot a couple of weeks ago we went and got snow cones, we both thoroughly enjoyed them!
Yesterday, our ward had a hike and we decided to go. If a hike didn't get the baby out I don't know what will.

Here's a pic of Audrey with her friends from nursery.

About half way there.

The falls at the end. Still no baby, he is going to come in his own due time I guess.

Guitar recital

So, after having played the guitar for all of two months, Steven had his first recital. He started out learning Twinkle Little Star, Amazing Grace and To Grandmothers House We Go and then learned Hey Jude. Quite the jump in my opinion. He did very well, considering that the other participants were under the age of 13 and played like they had been playing for years. They were seriously amazing. The girl that played before him got up and rocked on her electric guitar, I was intimidated and I wasn't even playing!
The guy standing next to him is his teacher, he goes on his mission in a couple of weeks.
There was an entire band there to back them up, and the girl in yellow sang each song. It was the coolest recital I've ever been to.

Here he is playing Hey Jude. I was quite proud of him.
