I just realized that I haven't told anyone except for my family that we found out the sex of our baby! And by the font color I've chosen, you're right to assume it's a GIRL!!! We are so excited! I'm esctatic about finally being able to buy girl clothes! It's not fair how much more selection and variety girls have over boys! But now I get to be included in the fun! :) I thought it would be fun for Jacey to have a brother so close in age, but a sister will be just as good! He can be her little bodyguard! So cute! We had our ultrasound a couple of weeks ago to find out. It was an interesting experience. Our tech didn't speak English very well, she was European and spoke with a very strong accent. Apparantly my baby wasn't moving around a lot so she was taking a long time getting all the pictures she needed, but she didn't ever tell me that and since she was taking so long (about 45 minutes) before she let Jeffrey come in, we both thought something was wrong! Man, what a little communication will do! But besides her being lazy, our baby is perfectly healthy as far as they can tell. Like Melinda's baby, ours didn't want to show us her face in the 4D ultrasound, her hands were in front of it the whole time. So we will have to wait until April to see her. She'll probably just look like Jacey though. Which I think is pretty dang cute. :)
Other news in my life, is that we're finally making our place a home. We decided that even though we don't have a kitchen yet and most of our stuff is in boxes, we were going to decorate where we could. So we have a few mirrors and pictures hung on the walls, and we finally got our bed frame put on and bought nightstands (we haven't had any ever since we got's so nice to not have stuff on the floor beside the bed). It's just a start, but I'm loving the effect that it's had on the house and us! I actually like being there again! We're house sitting for Palmers next week, so I think we're just going to have someone come into our place and work as much as they can on the kitchen while we're gone. It seems like it will NEVER be done, but I know that eventually it will. Just not as soon as I want. Oh well, can't have it all right?
I'm so excited for Christmas it's not even funny! I have zero decorations (actually I just made my first one at Super Saturday last advent calendar/nativity scene) but I want to decorate SOO badly! We do actually have a tree (thank you Heather & Gannon), so I'm going to have to go pick up some essentials and do as much as I can soon. I just ordered stockings online that are super cute and I can't wait to get them. I ordered 9 of them so that I'll have enough for my whole family when they're all here on earth with us. We want 7 kids ideally, but who knows what will happen. But if we do have that many, I want us to have matching stockings and I most likely won't find the same ones if I don't get them now. That's the logic behind that. :) I know it sounds weird. But it makes sense to me.
Nothing else is really going on. Kandice is home this week for American Thanksgiving, it's been fun hanging out with her when we get the chance. She is rather popular though and is always doing something! :) Jacey will be turning one in about 3 weeks. That is INSANE to me! We're going to have a big fun joint birthday party with Kandice and Nixon when they all come up here! Can't wait for that! That's about it I guess. Nothing too too exciting. Besides us having a girl that is! :) I will take pictures of our "new" house, but I probably won't get them loaded onto the computer for a while, because we still don't have a computer, I'm using Brett's. One day. Maybe next year. :) Well, that's all for me!

I've been tagged....and this is the first time I've responded to any of these things, because I couldn't resist the opportunity to talk about Jeffrey. I just love him!

What is his name? Jeffrey and like Gannon and all the other Palmers (except me for some reason), he has a million names, the most popular being Freedom and Chowder
How long have you been married? Just over two years!
How long did you date? Dated for 3 months, engaged for 5 weeks! When you know you know..right? :)
How old is he? 23
Who eats more? Probably him, but when I'm pregnant, it's probably me!
Who said I love you first? He did and it made my heart skip a beat!! I will never forget it!
Who is taller? Him, by about 3"
Who sings better? I LOVE his voice!! He was in a school musical and I didn't make it into the one I auditioned that pretty much tells us the answer!
Who is smarter? Jeffrey..his mind is amazing!!
Whose temper is worse? We're pretty similar, probably me.
Who does the laundry? I do, but I don't mind
Who does the dishes? When we have a kitchen...Jeffrey does, he's so good to me!!

Who cooks dinner? Again, when we have a kitchen, I do. He is great at going to get us food though, especially when I have cravings!
Who drives when you are together? Jeffrey always
Who is more stubborn? I would say him. He would probably say me though.
Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? No question...ME! I love you Jeffrey! I keep the peace :)
Whose parents do you see the most? We're lucky to live in the same city as both sets of parents, but I'd say Jeffrey's parents.
Who proposed? Jeffrey
Who has more friends? I would say he does..but I actually communicate with mine!
Who has more siblings? I do, there are 6 kids in my family, and 5 in his.
Who wears the pants in the family? We share ...although Jeffrey is very sweet about letting me have my way a lot! But when it's really important, we share.

I tag: anyone who hasn't done it that wants to do it! :)
