Our move

Lovely huh? Our dryer's out was not hooked up, and apparently the people who lived here before did not realize it. So Scott climbed behind our stackable washer/dryer and vacuumed the walls and got all of the lint that was back there. This was not even all of it. Gross!
 Today we bought some ply wood and Scott got it cut it down for new shelves. However, the gentleman who cut the wood at the store was off by a touch. So Scott improvised.
 You can see our new addition to the cubbards here and below. Ahh, more shelving!

 It's amazing what two shelves will do to the world's smallest pantry. You have to remember that at our previous apartment, the pantry was gigantic and we had shelves in every single closet. We have completely downsized.
 Our cute little kitchen. Again, using as much space for storage as possible.
 We had to convert a bookshelf into an extended pantry. All of our canned food sits here infront of our water heater.
This has to be my favorite. We bought this over-the-toilet shelf at the DI...(our apartment doesn't even have a linen closet!!!). Then mom and I bought a new shower caddy (the shower even lacks ledges to put your bottles on!!). So we had our old little shower caddy with no purpose. I got creative. It now holds our toothbrushes, toothpaste, q-tips, some vaseline, and whatever else we feel like putting in it.

23 weeks, Christmas

 23 Weeks. If you couldn't tell by the color of the dress....we're having a GIRL!
 Since we moved right before Christmas, we did not invest in a tree of any sort. This blow up tree was sent to us by my Aunt Maudie a year ago. We put some lights on it and some presents under it!
 Scott made a smoked turkey and it was delish. It was his first turkey. Below is my mom helping him carve it.
 My oatmeal dinner rolls.

Brian's Graduation

Brian spoke at his convocation. Let me rephrase that, he was the only speaker at his convocation and after him was President Clark and Elder Jenson who each said a word. Brian was no 4.0 student, he infact only was at the school for like 3 semesters. They just liked him!

Baby Smith's First pictures

Sorry the last picture is sideways... This ultrasound was done September 16 at 8 weeks and 3 days. The video of it is found here. I'm so excited to see our baby tomorrow for another ultrasound!

If you would like to see what we did for Thanksgiving, my friend Ali posted it on her blog.

21 Weeks and Finales

21 weeks!

This week there is plenty going on. First of all: Wednesday is the last day of classes. This week we also find out what we are looking for a blog post on that... Thursday night Brian, Mariah, Jaxson, and my mom get in from Boise. Saturday is Brian's graduation-he will also be speaking at his commencement! woo! And then Monday we will be moving. The days leading up to that will be finishing packing and cleaning. Until next time...

20 weeks

It is amazing to think that we made it to 5 months already! From here on out it's nothing but growing for the baby. All the major things are done being developed, it's all about putting on the weight now (for both me and the baby!)

The Kirkams

Aubrey is leaving for her mission on Wednesday morning. Her mom's request were some family photos. These will do. And yes, they are just as crazy as they look.

So you won't be hearing about what we are having (and neither will we) for another 2 weeks. Apparently whoever told us that our ultrasound was for today, was wrong-o. They try really hard to not have this ultrasound before 20 weeks. Currently I am 3 days short of that! So our official official by doctor official appointment day is December 16. And even then it is iffy. I say that because that is the first day of finals, and we haven't checked our finals schedule. So even that appointment may change. Can I just say how incredibly bummed I am right now?!
