An update? Could it be true?

Since the blog was at risk to receive some trash-talk from James, I thought it was past time for an update!
The month of December was fun and very eventful. Maybe a little too eventful! The first part of the month was consumed with preparations for our Christmas play at church. The following week was busy with preparations for our women's ministry Christmas party at our house. The rest of the time before Christmas was VERY busy with preparations for Tom and Jane's Christmas present - a cd of favorite songs recorded by all of the Powers kids. It was a lot of fun but a lot of work. It is still not mastered but it really sounds great! The big reveal finally came on Christmas Eve. It was awesome. I know that all of us were relieved to not have to keep the secret any longer! Christmas day was very relaxing. I am now the proud owner of a KITCHEN AID thanks to my wonderful husband! We spent the afternoon and evening at Mom and Dad's. I even got to take a nap! A lovely day if you ask me.
Dan recording and Liz "accompaning" him. :o)

The Monday before Christmas was quite eventful for us as well. We were able to see our little baby again! I'm still amazed at how much development happens in such a short period of time. The heart was beating nice and strong. It had it's little fists clenched up over it's face. The tiny little feet were crossed at the ankles. It was incredible. I will have one more ultrasound on February 17th. If the little one cooperates, we will be able to see if we're having a boy or a girl!

My dear childhood friend, Raechel Paris, got married on December 27th! It was a beautiful wedding and reception. I have never been to a wedding that had 8 children in the wedding party (three of them being infants). It was a great day and we're so happy for them. Thinkphotographics did a great job with the photography (their photos are under Raechel and Michael married).

I was unfortunately hit with the stomach bug during the last week of the 2008. It was awful! Dan was a wonderful care-giver and (thankfully) didn't catch the bug himself. I felt well enough to get out of the house for a little bit on New Year's Eve. Kim and Phil Radcliff has a few of us over to ring in the new year with some guitar hero, poker and a cheese platter very much like the one served at the lovely Palermo Veijo. Good job Kim!

I am currently sitting in a hotel room in Chico, California! We flew into San Francisco on Tuesday and then drove the three hours to Dan's work site in Chico. We are driving to Napa Valley this afternoon and then drive back to San Francisco tomorrow morning to see some sights! We won't fly home until Sunday. We're trying to get some mini-trips in before the baby comes. I plan on posting an entire entry devoted entirely to sunny Cal very soon.
