Cheezy Grin for Week 36

I finally got around to posting this picture. It's not really one of my favorites, but here's a pic of me at 36 weeks! I'm currently 37, but maybe this will be my last one... If this baby doesn't come early, I'll take another at about 40 weeks.
Daddy's news: Seth's on an alternate list for acceptance in California (I'm assuming this is routine because he's a shoe-in). He's working as a "grease monkey" at Flying J in Jerome (if you don't know where that is, it's right by Twin Falls...just across the bridge)...he's still doing Mcdonalds, but will change it to Part-time, and still the only technician for the alarm company here. The sales reps aren't doing too well, so he needs the other jobs. He's a busy man!

Our Adorable Baby Boy!!!

I just can't believe how close we are to having this baby! These are ultrasound pictures at 36 weeks. Porter is such a cute little boy!!

We got some 3-D pictures, which are just adorable!!!

Look at that grimace!

Looks like he's got Daddy's mouth! :S

I hope his nose isn't really THAT big...

As far as getting this baby out early? Probably not going to happen. Nothing is happening so far, and according to the estimate on the ultrasound, he's currently 6 pounds...he might be a ten pounder like his dad. Oh joy!

Daddy's news: Seth has a new job at McDonald's. He's installing for an alarm company here, also, so he has quit the call center. This has made him much happier. He had his interview today in California and will find out if he is accepted to the school there on Monday.

Move to Twin

So because of various reasons, mainly money, Seth and I moved to Twin Falls to live with my family in a room in the basement. We have settled in nicely, but are still working around getting our schedules organized. It's hard to feel like we're living just feels like we're on a long vacation. For scheduling so far, I am doing two choirs on the CSI campus and Seth is taking his Microbiology Lab he forgot to take last semester and doing the Jazz Band on campus. It's definitely a change from Rexburg and BYU-Idaho, but we are at least doing things we love. Seth is in the process of finding a better job so he can provide as much as possible for our little family and save up for optometry school. He has a job at a survey place, much like Western Watts in Rexburg, and hates it. I don't blame him. I hated Western Watts, but at least he has a job. I'm planning on working at Snoasis over the summer again to help out. By that time, Porter should be old enough to be babysat. I'll have a schedule with him by then, too. Seth has an interview at Southern California College of Optometry in five days. That will hopefully have good results because that's where he's wanting to go to optometry least for now. He hasn't heard from Pacific University about an interview with them yet, but I'm sure he will. Other than that, we are preparing for Porter to come! I'll have a baby shower in about a week in Rexburg and another in Twin in February...probably after he's born. That'll help us out a lot.
So that's about it!
We certainly hope all is well with all of you!

Christmas in Casper

Seth and I spent Christmas in Casper with the Jensens :). We had a lot of fun doing various activities. Here are some pictures!

Family Swim Competition...We won most...can ya tell?

Seth with the Christmas antlers they had to wear for one of the "meets." It was hilarious.

We hope you had a Merry Christmas!...At least I do ;)
