Here are some pictures of the baby! I have friends in ultra sound so i get a scan probably every other week. I am so paranoid about making sure all limbs are there and making sure the heart rate is good. Its probably because I work in the Health Field and have seen so many cases of abnormal growth. I should really calm down!! Well I just got passed the first trimester. The morning sickness has let up some, but hasn't totally gone away. Matt and Jace have been really good to me, helping me around the house, cooking and cleaning. I really apperciate it! Here's Your Grandchild Mom and Dad.

PART 1 of 2 Posts Niagra Falls & Palmyra

Well, on my last post I said we were not going to be doing anything for a couple of months, do to the fact these are the most coldest months. Well I was wrong! Matt decided to suprise us and take us to Niagra Falls. It was an AMAZING trip. We stayed In the Marriott in a suite with a AWSOME view of the Falls. I took one picture from our window in our room that I posted so all of you guys can see our view. It was VERY,VERY, Cold there. In one of the pictures I posted you can see how thick the ice is on the trees, the mist that is coming up from the falls were so cold that when it came down they were little ice chips. We stayed on the candian side and had so much fun. On the way back Matt wanted to stop and see one of his churches sacred sights, so we stopped off in Palmyra and he got down and took a tour of some of the sights. He took Pictures of them. NEXT POST

Log Cabin on Smith Farm where Moroni appeared to Joseph Smith


This weekend we were able to go to Niagara Falls and stopped in Palmyra, New York on the way, The picture of the hill is the Hill Cumorah where Joseph Smith recieved the the plates from Moroni. 3 miles away from the Hill Cumorah is the Smith farm. It is a 100 acre farm with two houses on it. The first house is the house that Alvin Smith built for the Smith family before he died and the log cabin is the original family house first built on the farm. Upstairs in the cabin is where Moroni appeared to Joseph Smith. It is also where the translation of the plates began. The picture of the grove of trees is the sacred grove where Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith. I was the only visitor to the farm that day and so it was a very spiritual experience for me. Hopefully in the Summer we will go back and see it when it is warmer and spend a little more time there.

We haven't really done much sight seeing in the past couple of months do to the freezing weather here, but as soon as it warms up i will post more pics of NYC. i just wanted to post some pictures of our English Bulldog.

Yes, We are Expecting!

I haven't really posted any thing about this but Matt and I are expecting a little one this summer. After 9 1/2 years we get to start all over changing diapers and having sleepless nights. Sometimes I wonder if I will remember how to do it all again since my parents were such a big help the first time. Jace is very excited and he will be a big Help with the baby. He thinks that being 10 years older than his brother or sister is cool. I don't know why but he does. This pregnancy is alot different than the first one. I never had morning sickness with Jace. Well anyways i hope everyone had a Happy New Year.

Christmas Post

This Christmas we had a Wonderful time. Jace started the day by waking us up at 5 AM to open presents. It was hard for me to get up because of the Morning sickness, but i knew he was so excited so I got out of bed. It took me forever to get Matt out of Bed, but he eventually got up and we went to the Family room to open Presents. It was the first Christmas we spent without any of our Family around. It was lonely but we got through it. Jace asked santa for a slim PSP this year, and since he was a good boy and a sport about moving across the nation without any crying, Santa brought the PSP. He also got a Lap Top from My mom's Boss. He loved It! Who wouldn't right? Nine years old with a lap top I wouldn't have even dreamed of a lap top at that age.(Well i don't think they were even around Yet). It is Nice because he plays all his games, look things up for school and surf the net without asking us for help. We always had to run back and forth to the computer room. Thank you Mrs. Rocha!!. Jace also got Tech Decks from his Grandma and Grandpa Romero He loved Them. Thanx Grandparents. After were Got done opening presents we spent time as a Family and went to a movie. I was so exhausted as soon as I got home i laid on the couch and fell asleep. Matt took this horrible picture of me while i slept. The baby Bump is starting to show! Ughh. Well I hope You all Had a good Christmas And a Happy new year.
