My new Niece... Gigi is here!!

Georgia Gene Craw (Gigi) arrived Friday the 19th at 1:11 am! She weighted 6 lbs 15 oz. and is 20 1/2 inches long. I was calling California hourly to find out how the labor was going (she was induced) and finally, after 18 hours of labor they did a C-Section because she was trying to come out sideways!! She already has a little mind of her own!! I am pretty sure she REALLY wants to meet her aunt! Looking at those pictures makes me want another baby so bad (this is not an announcement! After running 4 times a week for a year I finally have my figure back and am too selfish to give that up. Maybe in a year!) Babies are wonderful, they are so sweet and innocent because they just left our Heavenly Father. It is such a special time when you welcome a new spirit into your family!! I always enjoy and cherish it and hope Jessica does too!

She is SO beautiful with her big pretty eyes and
rose-bud lips!

Here is Jessica post delivery... Yes, she looks amazing!! Jessica will be back in her size 0 skinny jeans in a week don't worry!

ps. I am less than a week away from getting another little Niece!

Because some friendships are forever!!!

Last weekend our wonderful friends the Goldthorpe's came to Utah for a dental convention. We were lucky enough to spend a day hanging out with them! We became fast friends with them during our four years living in Florida. Karen and I swear it's our "Idaho roots" that drew us to each other! We had so much fun catching up and hanging out with them! (Sorry the pictures are a little grainy I forgot my camera so you get pictures from my iPhone!)

The "Dr's"

They bring around all the meat you can eat!!
Oddly enough the kids LOVED the chicken hearts

Dear Jillian,

Thank you in advance for my tummy which looks like I never had a kid in my life and my chiseled legs! Seriously though you are killing my legs and it's making it hard to walk! But when I am done my body will look like yours I know it... because you promised me and I believe you!

Happy V-Day!!

Well since James was actually out of town on Valentines day we had date night on Friday night! We went to dinner yummy... lobster!! And then headed to The lightning thief (they changed the plot A LOT so if you read the book wait till it's in the dollar theatre!)

Now onto the Valentines day fiasco!!! NEVER I mean NEVER try taking you kids to church by yourself if you want to get anything out of it! Trying to reign in the three ring circus for 3 hours was exhausting and overwhelming but we made it and lived to tell the tale! Onto happier topics James comes home tonight!!!

All gussied up and ready to head out!!

My new necklace. Thanks Jessica for the suggestion
I love it!!!

Beautiful roses and look... no babies breath
good job James!!

James doing his "best" impression of Bob Barker HA HA it's terrible! In front of his 'new ride' which also doubled as a Valentine's gift!!
