When I am pregnant, I have ear problems. Almost EVERY DAY my ear is plugged. With Tyson, both of them were plugged. Luckily Keely is only causing my left ear to plug. But, let me tell you how annoying it is. VERY!!! I hear myself talk, breath eat...right now scarfing down a sandwich because I just had my blood glucose test and didn't want to eat anything that would cause my blood to look like I have diabetes...and let me tell you that hearing people eat is one of my biggest pet peeves! Anyway, does or has anyone else had this problem?

So obviously I don't blog as much as some other people. But, I try to whenever I can, when I have things to talk about.
Tyson and I have a big trip coming up. On Saturday (in the very early morning) Tyson and I are heading up to my parents for a couple of weeks. We get to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with them. Which, is very awesome since we can't spend American Thanksgiving with any of our family...too far along to fly!
I am really praying that Tyson will be a very good boy on the flight. I don't really have the energy that he has. We have three legs to our flight, but luckily we don't have very long layovers. We stop in Denver and then in Calgary (where we go through customs). I have my notarized letter ready that states that Luke is allowing me to take our son out of the country. So, weird that we have to do that, but better to be prepared than chance not being allowed across the border.
We are looking forward to spending some time with cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents...and just relaxing. I am definitely in need of being able to put my feet up a little more than I have been doing!
We are not looking forward to cold weather! It has still been very warm here in OK. But, up in Saskatchewan, it has been in the 50s and 60s predominantly. Who knows, it might even snow while we are there.
For all of you up in Portland area...we have tickets booked to come for Luke's Spring Break (March 14-23). And, then Tyson and I will have tickets booked sometime this week to come for July (probaby for the whole month)...and yes of course Keely will be coming too, but doesn't need a ticket! Luke will be touring the NW with the singing group that he is in and so we thought we might as well spend some time with friends and family!!! I know that it is a long way off, but just wanted to share some of my excitement with you!

Tyson is so funny some times and just cracks us up. (We have many times that are very frustrating, so I guess God gave us these hilarious times and all his loves to make up for the times that are more difficult.)
So, I've talked about his obsession with rocks. Well that still continues. (He has to have something smaller in at least one hand almost at all times. It's not always rocks.) He has also developed this funny thing that he tucks something under his chin so that he can hold just one more thing.
I had to share these pictures because he needed just one more rock, so he tucked the one.

These are some more funny pictures. He loves to hide and I guess he thought this box was just the most fun to sit in.

My Latest Cake

I had the honor of making a cake for my friend's baby shower. Melissa and her husband (well her family, they already have 2 children) are adopting a baby boy, Ethan, from Rwanda. They leave this week to pick him up. He is so stinkin' cute!!
Anyway, I had a blast experimenting with fondant. I had never used fondant before and so it was fun to try it out. I thought the cake turned out pretty well for a first.

I made this cake for a "County Fair" that our church did. We weren't able to have our yearly 4th of July Celebration this year because of the major amounts of rain that we had, so we had a county fair instead.
