An Appointment and Anniversary

    Wednesday, I went for my 24 week OB appointment.  I had an ultrasound scheduled to check on a situation they found during my 20 week ultrasound.  Thankfully, that little problem had fixed itself, but the ultrasound revealed another situation.  Oh, the joys of pregnancy in your 30's :).  Low story short, looks like baby #2 is gonna make an early appearance!  However 24 weeks is way too early!  So now I have to be in rest mode.  Thankfully, it's not full blown bed-rest, but I'm suppose to be off my feet 90% of the day.  
      I'm thankful I can still drive and sit but life is looking a lot different around the Jones' house!  My days are being spent with lots of couch time while Kendall plays around the living room.   I've already read 2 books, I have Kendall's preschool curriculum planned out, and I never thought I'd say this, but I'm a little tired of pinterest.  Ha!  Things could be a lot worse.  I'm glad my little girl likes to be on Momma's heals and doesn't really wonder around the house much.  I'll have another ultrasound at my 28 week appointment to reassess things.  I'm loving the extra ultrasounds :).  


7 years ago--about 9 months after we began dating

   Saturday, Michael and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary.  
I'm so thankful for our marriage and our time together.  I couldn't be happier with the spouse that God sent me!  Marriage can be joyful!  We had different plans but after my Dr appointment we decided to go to the Dixie Stampede which involves lots of sitting.   :)  Kendall went with us.  She loved it.  She stood almost the entire hour and a half with her eyes glued to the show.  I believe we have an animal lover on our not her mother's child!

So that's the update for our little family.  Lots of couch time and a year added together.  :)

Family Time

    Some of our family were in from out of state last weekend, so we were able to meet for a little cookout and spend some time with them.  

Kendall loved playing at the park and feeding the ducks!

Cute cousins!

July 4, 2014

We had a great fourth of July.  We started off with a cookout at our pastor's house, and then enjoyed fireworks with our friends at Kingston. 

Kendall liked seeing Sawyer and Sophie

And she liked the fireworks also.  

And just for kicks...July fourth of years gone by....



2012...Kendall was tiney tiny in my belly.

Gender Reveal Party

    A few weeks back when we found out the baby's gender, my sister and mom hosted us a gender reveal party.  I am so glad they did!  It was so much fun and special to me!  Everyone says you do less with baby #2 which I'm sure is true.  This was something special for this baby that we didn't do with #1. 
    They had it at my house since theirs is so far off the beaten path!  Other than cleaning, all I did was make the invite and hang a few decorations they brought.  It was nice to be pampered :).  

I blurred out my sister's number for the world wide web.  You can thank me later, Punk!

 Lots and lots of yummy food!

 Praying for the food and our new little one.  

 Team guns...Everytime I see my father-in-law in this picture I crack up!  Too funny!

 Team Glitter

 It was pretty divided on boy and girl!  Michael found out at the ultrasound appointment.  I was still in the dark at this point.  I had thought girl the day before and was thinking boy on this day. 

 Popping the balloon to see lots of pink!

 So glad our friend Lauren came and took pictures.
