Speaking of weight gain...

You know you're a fatty when...

*You have trouble bending over to tie your shoes
*You sit your plate on your belly when you're eating in front of the TV
*You have to wake up to perform the difficult procedure of rolling over in bed
*You wear jogging pants to work because style is over rated and comfort is of utmost importance
*You don't know what color shoes you are wearing as you can't see your feet and you now only wear slip-ons
*You have to extend your arms to type as your belly hits the desk

And the number one way you know you're a fatty when...

*You wear extra large maternity pants and then stepping into a vehicle you split above mentioned pants...

More weight gain...

Here is the picture we took about a week and a half ago for the 8 month picture:



My belly is getting bigger... although walking around the Trade Show on the weekend people kept asking when I was due and when I said in a month each one got a shocked look on their face and said... but you're so small!

Well it feels big to me!

Oh and since I'm writing on Kevin's b-day... Happy Birthday Kevin!
PS. He's really old... just in case you were wondering...

Easter Dinner

I'll never eat a pickled beet with a straight face again...

So we're sitting around the table eating a yummy Easter Dinner prepared by Clayton's Mom aka Grandma. Riley, our sweet little 4 year old nephew is sitting between myself and Grandma. The pickled beets are getting passed around and Grandma asks Riley if he would like one.

"No thank you, Grandma" he says, "I don't like them."

But Grandma is not deterred, "Have you ever tried one, Riley?" She asks and then continues to say, "If you eat enough pickled beets they make your pee turn red!"

Riley looks up, suddenly interested. He takes a long look at the dish of pickled beets in Grandma's hand and then lets her slide one onto his plate.

The meal continues with pleasant chatter and then as if on cue pretty much everyone glances over at Riley at the same time...

He has undone his pants and is checking himself out... he then looks up to a table full of faces, all eyes on him and says oh so innocently:

"Hey it didn't turn my pee pee red!"

The laughter continued on for what seemed like decades.

And I'm laughing again now.

Yup it's a fact... I'll never eat pickled beets with a straight face again!

April already?

Wow how the time flies!

I would like to apologize for the long stint of NOT posting... I surely have a declining readership now! But if blaming someone else makes you like me again... then lets blame Clayton!
Maybe he was visiting too many inappropriate sites... or downloading songs illegally... or... insert own guess here... but whatever it was... in the middle of March Shockware decided to disconnect our Internet, without warning. When we were finally fed up with the connection issue, Clayton phoned in to complain... the conversation ended with him sheepishly saying yes waiting until April for Internet service would be fine.
So it's now April and we're back on-line!

While we were Internet deprived and had all this free time on our hands that was previously filled with google searches, FB and other life sucking Internet activities Corrine came down and took some baby belly pictures for us and then Karen showed me this neat trick on photo shop...

Making a picture black and white with one thing left highlighted in colour!!!


Isn't it cool???


And just as cool in this picture...


Oh don't the flowers just pop out at you?!



Yippee I love this little trick!

And I also can't wait until she learns more about photo shop so in turn I can pick it from her brain and apply it to my pictures!!! Quick Karen... quick... or all my pictures are going to look like this! ;)

Maybe a little Internet deprivation isn't such a bad thing...
