Flint's first marathon and he does it in under 4 hours, with only 3 hours of sleep and with a cold! To top it all off, he was so busy with school and work, that the farthest he even ran before the marathon was 13 miles! My husband is a natural athlete! He just gets out there and starts running! I love him so much and was so proud of him! It was a really fun day too because my whole family, Flint's Mom and Dad, and the Syphus Family all went up to mile marker 6 to cheer the runners on. We set up loud speakers with funky music and danced for the runners as they went by. Then we busted out our grill, cooked us up some fattening egg mcmuffins, and kept on cheering! We had to wait for most of the runners to pass by before we could leave for the finish line! We got there just in time to see Flint come in! Go Flint!

Baby Shower

A couple of weeks before my due date, Staci and a bunch of friends threw me a bridal shower. Everyone did so much, but I know Staci spent countless hours! She even color coordinated everything to match Baby Elijah's nursery. I have such talented friends! Thank you everyone!

Monarch of the Seas Cruise

Last week a couple of friends got together to go on a cruise! Lindsay did all of the planning and we had so much fun! Some of the highlights of the week were the midnight chocolate buffet (which made us sick the next morning), line dancing to The Boot Scootin' Boogy (I even got Flint to dance!!), playing the Love & Marriage Game (beware of your parents participating: ask Jessica for more details), all of our yummy dinners (Joe ordered 2 entrees every meal and of course gained 10 lbs!), and just lounging by the pool.

20 weeks

Well here we are at 20 weeks! Halfway done! This was the first week that people could actually tell I was pregnant (or maybe it was the first week they actually dared to say something!). There were three different people that said things like "You better feed that baby" or "C'mon Mommy.." Sometimes it would catch me off guard and I would look around and wonder who they were talking to.. It is so much fun! Flint always wants to touch my belly and he has been so sweet taking care of me. Well, last week we found out that we are having a little boy! We are so happy!

I'm Pregnant!

I am sure most of you already know by now, but yes, I am pregnant!! We told everyone we hoped it would happen the day Flint got home and it looks like that's just what happened! We are so excited! I am about 8 weeks along and feeling pretty good. I've only thrown up once, but I feel nauseous everyday and am totally sicked out by the airfreshners, crackers, and eating in general. I have to eat all the time; every hour atleast! Sometimes I just wish I didn't have to eat anymore, but it makes it all worth it when I feel better 10 minutes later. We call our baby "our little rice ball" because it is currently the size of a grain of rice. Flint talks to the baby almost everyday and tells herm (him/her) to swing those toothpick arms a little slower so it doesn't make mommy so sick.

My Baby's Home!!

Well here we finally are! I'm sorry Staci for taking so long to post my first blog! Flint has been home for a little over three weeks and it has been the most joyous time of my life. His homecoming was so wonderful and everyday just keeps getting better and better. I am so proud of him !

And now for the drum roll please...

This is Staci again. Just got an email from Candice saying that Flint flies into Camp Williams (Lehi) at 4:30 tomorrow!!! Yipee. I'm sure you can all imagine how excited she is. In fact, some of you know first hand! I am assuming that she won't actually begin her blogging for a couple weeks while she and Flint spend some time together. So, until then...
