Picture Tag Accomplished....

This picture is of Elder Simpson, a.k.a. Troy. He was one of our favorite missionaries. He helped Koy and I quit smoking and then him and another elder also helped Koy quit drinking. We are grateful for these young men that they chose to go on a mission and serve the Lord! I want to tag everyone that hasn't been tagged yet!

One Tag at a Time...

This one is a baby tag...

1- Where were you when you first found out that you were pregnant?
When I suspected I was at work, the actual test was done at home with Koy crossing his fingers and hoping that I was.

2-Who was with you?
Koy was outside the bathroom door, I told him I didn't want him watching me pee on a stick.

3-How did you find out you were pregnant?
I was talking to a girl at my work about how my sides were hurting a little bit and that it wasn't my period and a few other related pregnancy symptoms. She told me that I should take a test to find out. I didn't want to take the test but Koy told me I should, just in case. Indeed, the test confirmed I was!

4-What was your first reaction to finding out you were pregnant?
Uh.... are you sure that two lines means that you are pregnant and not meaning double negative for you are NOT pregnant?

5-Who was the first person that you told?
Koy, who else?

6-Was everybody happy for you?

Morning sickness? Try all day and into the night sickness, I was miserable!!!! (It was worth it!)

Is that even a question? Like I told people if there is technology to find that out then yes I am going to find out!

10-What was the sex?
Boy!!! (What I wanted) My mom and Koy thought it would be a girl so when they found out it was a boy they were kind of shocked... the ultrasound guy said if we really wanted a girl it could be a girl with a kickstand! No thanks!

11-Did anyone throw you a baby shower?
Yes, three of them were done. My friend and neighbor Megan, Koy's aunts, and my cousin Chelsea. Again thankyou all for doing that... speaking of I need to send out my thankyou cards!
