Meet Tresley

Have you ever seen "If They Mated" on Conan O'Brien? Apparently this is what will be arriving in August 2009 from Lesley and I. We like to call it "Baby Tresley." Not only is he/she black, but also approximately 13 years old.

In case you hadn't figured it out yet, Lesley's eggo is preggo.

On a serious note, we're very excited and eagerly anticipating the arrival of the real Baby Tresley (hopefully not looking like this) in early August. Lesley is now 12 weeks along and we have heard the heartbeat and seen the baby on ultrasound so we know there's really something in there and that there is only one of them. The baby was bending and moving constantly while we watched on ultrasound. To me, it looked like there were squats being done. We may have a powerlifter on our hands.
We are very excited to see what this next stage of life brings us and happy to be blessed with this gift from Heavenly Father.

We went to Oregon...and look what we found...

More snow than I've ever seen in Oregon before. Brad and Mandy's neighborhood reminded me of the snow levels in Donkey Kong Country - snow covered trees, roads, trash cans, cars. It was really beautiful, but a major, major pain. The snow added about 10 hours to our already 26 hour round-trip. The snow encouraged our car slide down a steep road...without anyone in it. The snow made us dislodge a stop sign in order to avoid a make-over on the right side of our car. It was a real dream. But, other than that, the snow brought a good time.
