Spring Break

My lil sis came to spend a few days with me over her Spring break, it was so much fun to hangout with her. We drove straight from the airport to try and squeeze in the last day of the Draper Temple open house (without tickets). Luckily we made it onto the bus and into the temple.
It was so beautiful, and seemed alot bigger then any of the others I've been in, although I think its because the walkway you went on twirled all around like a maze so you couldnt really tell which way you were going. The inside had alot of beautiful cherry wood paneling from central Africa, Im going to have to find the name of their decorator so I can get some of that in my future home. It was so warm and inviting.
Me and Si outside the temple
Waiting for the blue busThe neighborhoods usrrounding the temple were HUGE houses!One of them had a big outside staircase that looked like Beauty and the Beast.

On Sunday after church we ran home starved (we always have to stay late for meetings, tith counting, setting aparts, etc etc). We made yuuuuuummmmy monte cristo sandwiches!
And I used my cool skillet that im now addicted to.

Sisters lovingly preparing the dinner :-P

Greg was a little hesitant about the jam and powdered sugar combo
He didnt know
But he learned
And he liked :-)
Monday we went to the salon and gave Sierra some low-lights, oOooOo. Then we went to my dr. appointment and ULTRASOUND!!! Found out we're not having a Max...
Its a Girl! Its a Girl! Its a Girl! Its a Girl! Its a Girl!
I have no names picked or even in the running for girls names. They're hard!

Dad and Bea drove up on Monday so we got to hang out with them for hte rest of the week.
Here we are at Texas Roadhouse

I love that place!

Other activities while they were here:
Shopping, shopping, more shopping, Eating yummy food, getting Buck into the groomer (that was fun :-) big baby), had Bea's birthday cake prepared by S and D, and picked out lots of cute fabric for baby quilts. Bea's got her work cut out for her for the next few months :-)

All in all it was a very fun trip!
