Anyway this tag was open the fourth folder in your pictures folder and then the fourth picture in that folder and post it. Anyway here is the beauty that I found. I really had no intention of doing this tag, but when I saw the picture, I really thought I better, especially for my friend Emmaly (the one on the left).
Keep in mind these are 3 girls from a USDA-ARS corn starch analysis lab. That is right we had the really cool job up soaking, peeling corn, grinding it up, and then seperating the starch and then analysising the starch. It was actually a really good paying college job and I loved working there. This picture is from December 2002. And yes I am a little embarrassed about how seriously I seem to be taking this Charlie's Angels photo shoot.

Anyway I am excited about having a boy. Autumn was kind of hoping for another sister, but she seems fine with it. I was talking to her about having a baby brother and she said she was a little sad because she wanted a girl. Then she told me that she was worried because boys die before girls, and I exclaimed, where did you hear that, and then she tells me that her baba Russ (my dad) told her that. Then I tried to explain the context, that when people get really old, often men a little younger, but the real thing is she was worried about her baby brother dying. So then I promptly called my dad and "thanked" him for giving Autumn that little piece of information, when she isn't really old enough to understand the context, my dad just chuckled.
The baby's spine
Also one other note of interest, Autumn has seemed really excited about the ultrasound, so we decided that she would go late to preschool today so she could go with us. Well we went and they were running a little behind schedule so we started a movie in the waiting room. Well once it was our turn, the room is just off from the waiting room, and we were the only people in the office, so the ultrasound tech said the girls could stay in the waiting room and keep watching the movie if we wanted and we could leave the door open. So Autumn has been so excited about this ultrasound, but when it came down to it, the rugrats movie was way more exciting, so Ben had to yell out to the waiting room to tell the girls that they were having a baby brother, Autumn initial response "oh ok" (leave me alone i am watching this movie). Anyway I was amused by that.
So to celebrate today I made this outfit for our little boy. I am very excited, but also feel very busy since I need to gather up some boy clothes, as in I plan on sewing a lot, but very excited about it. I already have plans for cute little sunday outfits out of an old suit that Ben ripped the pants out on, so we are going to have a well dressed little boy.
By the way, how cool is my mom, she got me these snaps that look like buttons, in case I had a boy so that I could make all kinds of button up shirts, without the pain of actually doing buttons on a baby -- I LOVE these snaps, they are so cute!
I have also been really busy with our church's ward party. I am the co-chair activity person and we don't have a committee right now, so it was pretty much a 2 woman show with our husband's help, but it all turned out great, and now we are just trying to finish up painting our front room.
Anyways here is a bunch of pictures of the girls in their costumes and with their candy. Autumn requested I make her doll Atticus a matching Aurora dress, so that was the only costume I had to make for Halloween. Autumn's Aurora dress I made for Christmas last year and, i made the frog costume for Autumn 2 years ago, so Prairie got to recycle it, so it was a pretty easy year on sewing for me.
