Nick's parents got him a remote control helecopter and accessories. I got him a Hurley backpack and Julian got him cologne and a shirt.
Nick blew out all his candles so I guess his wish will come true. I bet he wished for a Harley, because that one already came true (mmmmm chocolate!).

My grandfather died when I was in middle school. This is a picturee of me (left) and my sister Sarah (right) with him. He loved icecream. I remeber every time he came to visit he would drink his coffee and smoke a cigarette every morning. Sarah and I used to always tell him "caca" trying to tell him that it was bad for him. I remember at our young ages we were concerned about the smoking killing him. We didn't speak spanish and had no way to communicate with him other than gestures and reactions and the two or three words of spanish we knew. We loved him so much. Once when I was about 9 I made by hand a case for his glasses. It was a simple pouch sewn by hand with thread and yard. He loved it. I have never known someone my dad respected more in the entire world. Yes he respects my mother and his children, but the respect he had for his father was one of awe. I miss him and though I could wish my heart out he was still alive, I believe it was part of the plan. He was preceded to the other side by my grandmother, who he missed dearly. They are together now.

Carmen and Dad went to the Ward Daddy Daughter Activity on Saturday. The Young Women and I organized the activities. It was a lot of fun and the girls did a great job getting things to run smoothly! Carmen had a blast!
Maybe next time there could be a Mommy Son Activity (according to Julian). He even went to the Bishop today at church and asked him when the next Father Son Campout would be, he felt so left out!

And this is what an oops looks like 12 weeks later. Now give me a little leway here, this is my fourth so my body goes straight into gain and stretch mode now. So such thing as 'hiding it' anymore. We are very excited. Nick is excited now and is glad we are having another baby. I am just now posting this because I went to the doctor today and heard the heartbeat for the first time so I know there is a life growing inside me!
