3 Things

#1 I finally completed baby boy's blanket today. I bought the fabric back in July and was so excited when we found out we were actually having a boy. Who was I going to make it for if we didn't? I have been working on it back and forth on our drives to and from Utah. Now the little guy can come! (Of course, he still needs to wait a few more weeks so that we can move and get settled!)
#2 I guess with the more kids you have, you don't care as much or don't take the time to do the belly shots. Here I am today at almost 34 weeks. This afternoon I had my last doctor's appointment in Colorado and was pleasantly surprised at my total weight gain for this pregnancy. Hopefully it will help with taking it off afterward. I'm flying to Maryland 6 weeks after baby is born to dance with my studio in their annual big show. I don't really want to be the fat dancer on stage. : )
#3 Lastly, we signed the lease for the house we are going to rent today! We are thrilled with the way things have worked out for us these past couple months. From obtaining the totally unexpected and buying the perfect practice for us in Utah of all places, to renting this house for an incredible deal and we'll have the option to buy it later on. Our countdown is 10 days now!

Those are the big 3 things of the day, but I thought I'd leave you with 3 more fun pictures of where we get to live. We aren't living in Park City - we have chosen to live in the Heber Valley where housing is a LOT more affordable. Midway to be exact for you Utahans that know the area.
Tucker will love being close to the Heber Creeper.

This is the view Cody will have from his dental practice. It doesn't get much better than that!

So excited for you guys! Looks like everything is going well. I love the quilt. Hats off to you for getting it done. I haven't even started one yet. I think I am waiting to get in gear until after Christmas. But I better hurry. Look forward to seeing you guys soon.

You're moving to Midway! I love Midway! Mark and I were commenting just last summer when we were staying in TSM's house up there (you got that reference, right?) how nice it would be to live there. Not too far from anything but quiet nonetheless! Oh, and darling blanket! When will you officially be "here" (in Utah)?
