A Good Laugh Comes in the Mail

So the other day, I was having one of those really pregnant days when even the commercials on TV made me cry, when out of the blue I received this in the mail:

The names have been concealed to protect the innocent. Just so you know, when we got the ultrasound, the doctor said that our baby's head was LARGER than usual. . . Adam was very suspicious. Thanks guys-we love you!

Tori...that's just disgusting!

So last week Lindsay and Tori flew out here to visit us. Tori was so excited to come that he called me everyday leading up to his trip. He had to tell me about every step in preparing to come visit....he got a new suitcase, he packed his suitcase, he put a nametag on his suitcase--all seperate phone calls. This was his first trip on a plane away from my parents.

One of the first things I took him to see was the Jelly Belly candy factory. He, of course, loved going on the tour and seeing how the jelly beans are made and tasting all the different flavors. Lindsay and I bought some of the gross-flavored beans to take home because wanted to have him try them later so we could film his reaction. This is what happened:

At first, we just thought he was getting all of the good flavors from the box, but I think that he must not have a sense of taste or smell, because he was eating all of the disgusting flavors right along with the good ones! That ole' Tori--always good for a laugh!

Celebration '09

I'm getting a little bit more comfortable in Relief Society. I've been getting to know all of the older sisters and they are just so welcoming. It also helps that they LOVE Adam so much. Many of the know him because he teaches Sunday school, but once I had him come to Ladies' Night Out when it was held at a buffet, and he was the life of the party. He even helped out in the nursery at the last activity.

A couple of weeks ago we held our spring event commemorating the organization of the Relief Society. It was about 3 months worth of planning, but it was well worth it. Everyone in our committee came together and it was wonderful. We had 60 ladies show up, which is phenomenal when we typically see 30-35 sisters at enrichment.

(well, this is one of the few photos of me pregnant--not really showing yet even though I'm 5 months along, but there is a little boy in there!)
