Pre-Christmas Festivities

Before Abby and I head to Florida, we got together with Jesse's family. It was great spending time with them before we left for our long vacation. As usual there was some yummy food and even better company. Abby got her big surprise, a new Jeep! She was so thrilled by it and she had to ride it right away. Despite the cold weather, we bundled her up and she went riding! She loved the radio that was in it and surfed the FM frequencies until she found something she liked.

She's listening to some good music

She loves her Daddy so much!Riding outside even when there's snow on the ground. She almost hit her uncle Josh's car. We will work on her driving skills.

St. George and Baby Isabella

It's been a while since I posted a blog so this is about a month in the making :)
A few weeks ago Jesse, Abby, and I went to St. George for some warm weather. We heard it was going to snow in the Salt Lake Valley and we weren't ready for the snow, so we made a run for it. Before we left, I had my ultrasound to find out what the gender of my little kicking machine was. Most of you have already heard that it's a girl :) We have decided to name her Isabella Jean. Jean in Jesse mom's middle name, and despite what most of you are probably thinking, Isabella has NOTHING to do with the Twilight books. I've loved the name since I was young. Abby was actually supposed to be Isabella, but Jesse wasn't sold on the name quite yet. He finally warmed up to it and said that if this baby, and this baby only, was a girl, we could name her Isabella.
We got to St. George late Thursday night and just crashed. Friday morning we took Abby to the park right by the house. She had a blast and I was amazed at how fearless she was. She loves to climb and do basically anything the older kids do. She really liked the see-saw and swings.
Later that night, our friends Jeff and Molly joined us fro Salt Lake. I don't think they were ready for the snow either. Saturday morning, the boys wewnt golfing (shocker), and the girls went shopping. Most of you know that I hate shopping with a passion. I'm such a froogle person and not keen on spending money. We went to the outlet stores and they were having the best sales! I actually had a good time shopping considering I was getting really cute shirts, both dressy and casual, for $5! I was all about it ;) Jesse was even proud of me because he knows how hard it is foor me to look for clothes. Later that night, we ordered some food from the Brick Oven and watched some UFC fights, and the movie "Up."

Supergirl to the rescue!!!

We took Abby to "Trunk or Treat" at our church. Everyone was in the parking lot serving candy out of their trunks. It was great to see all the kids having fun and it was especially comforting knowing who was giving my child candy :)





After that, we took Abby to see her Papa and Mima. Unfortunately, she fell asleep in the car and stayed asleep for the first 30 minutes we were there. Being a superhero is tiresome! When she finally woke up, she wanted to eat all of the candy at the house and loved going to the door when the treaters came to get their candy. As always, there is never a trip to see her Mima without a lot of reading.Sleepy Supergirl
She thought the baby needed a lollypop too :)



Birthday in St. George

Jesse and I went to St. George to celebrate my birthday. His parents got me tickets to see Aida at the Tuacahn Theater on Saturday night. We arrived Friday night and met up with Lindsey and Nate who drove up from Las Vegas. Saturday Morning we went to the St. George Temple. It was AWESOME! Afterward, we went to get some yummy smoothies from the Orange Peel, went home and watched some football, went out again andplayed mini golf, then went back to the house before we had to get ready from the show. It was a wonderful weekend spending time with friends and especially Jesse :)

Footloose was one of the other shows that were playing this summer. I don't think I would make a very attractive blond.

Week 13 Ultrasound

The baby is growing big and healthy :) The doctor thinks the baby was sleeping during the ultrasound b/c the heart rate dropped and he/she wouldn't move when we poked them. Finally with the last poke, the baby rolled over. A classic mommy move. Jesse can attest that I hate being bothered when I am sleeping.
So I had to take a picture of the ultrasound pictures with my camera phone so it's not great quality but you can still see the profile :)

Feeling older

This past Monday, I turned 26. This was the first birthday in a long time that I felt older. I'm blaming it on the fact that I am about to have my second child and i'm tired ALL the time. That and Abby keeps me going all day to the point of exhaustion :) Regardless, I feel so blessed to live the life that I live. I have wonderful friends and family who love and support me in all aspects of my life. I got a lot of phone calls, emails, and facebook messages from people that I wasn't even expecting to hear from. Thanks to all of you for loving and supporting me. Here are some of the things I got:

Lindsey hand painted this family rules board for me. She had one in her home and I loved it so she made me one with me own set of rules. It's a lot bigger than it looks and i'm so grateful to her for spending all the time she did on it, especially having her 2 twin girls and Gunner to take care of. You have to click on the picture to see it up close. It's SO cool!

I know a lot of you are saying "go figure Kimmie gets something related to Twilight. I didn't have the "New Moon" book so my friend Candice got it for me along with a twilight magazine with some hottie pics of Edward and Jacob :)

Many of you may not know this but I'm a HUGE Smallville fan. I really like Superman growingup so it was only fitting that I like this show. Plus, Clark Kent is a HOTTIE! Jesse is such a good sport for getting this for me.

I think this is self explanatory :)

I read "The Davinci Code" and "Angels and Demons" so I HAD to read this one. So far I am enjoying just as much as the other 2 so hopefully it will stay that way. I really like books that take anything historical and turns it into a mystery/thriller.

Bonnie and Jerry (Jesse's parents) got us tickets to go see Aida at the Tuacahn outdoor theater in St. George. I am so excited to go! I LOVE St. George and it's going to be so nice to have a mini vacation just me and Jesse. HORAY!!

Fun with the Smyths

Jesse and I went to the killers concert with Lindsey and Adam and it was a blast! I had no idea who they were, but Adam being the good sport that he, sang one of their popular songs to me. I recognized the song immediately from our "Guitar Hero" game, but he looked like he was having a lot of fun singing so I let him continue :)
Not only did Adam's company hook us up with free tickets, but we got to sit in the luxury box fully equipped with with drinks, snacks, food, couch, etc. Basically a hungry pregnant woman's dream :) Considering I had no idea who the performers were, I had such a great time, and the music was FANTASTIC! And to top things off, they had a "k" in the front of their stage that had lights on it. I was thinking of ways that I could get my hands on it, but when I saw the mosh pit that was forming in front of it, I decided it wouldn't be worth the risk :)
Lindsey has the really good pictures of us in our box but here is what I could get from my phone

First Dr. Appointment

I had my 8 week appointment today and I got to see the little one :) Unfortunately, my doc's machine was broken so I didn't get any pictures this time. Luckily, I had my camera with me so my doc recorded the ultrasound. Here's is Baby Clark!

A much needed family vacation

This past weekend, Jesse, Abby, and I went to St. George. We had a blast! It was so nice to be able to spend time together just the 3 of us. We arrived on Thursday night and just crashed. Friday morning we made plans to go swimming, have lunch, and then see Harry Potter.
The pool was AMAZING with the water being the perfect temperature. With St. George being at a comfortable 113 degrees, the 2 hours we spent in the pool was time well spent. I got the tan that I wanted so my trip by Friday morning was already well worth it :) For lunch we went to this yummy cafe called 25th and Main. They have the typical sandwiches, soups, and salads...but people come in for their cupcakes! they are the most delicious little cupcakes I've ever had! People will come in and just order BOXES of these :) We thought that if we filled Abby up on food and kept her up until the movie, she would nap through it. We even got her a little box of popcorn, candy, and a drink. She was good for about 30 minutes then it was terrible from then on. She would sing, try to talk tot he guy next to me, and try to run out of the aisle. Jesse was a champion and would tend to her little fits since he knew I was a huge fan of the books and movies. So needless to say, we will never try to bring Abby to a movie ever again.
That night we just ordered some chinese food and stayed at the house to play with Abby. We watched "Push" when she went to bed. It was a mediocre at best.
Saturday we took Abby to Jumping Jacks. I've never seen Abby have so much fun. I'll admit that I got teary eyed watching her run around. Time goes by so quickly. Abby impressed us even more than she normally does when she fearlessly climbed up steep, slippery steps all by herself. Most of the kids that we on these were at least 5 years old but Abby insisted on climbing. Again, very impressed.
Jesse and I had our own little bit of fun trying to beat the other in completing a mini obstacle course in the least amount of time. After 3 times each, I had the best time of 6.66 seconds, however, I paid a price for my victory. Whiplash and a dirty look from a 60 year old was the reward for my W. We had some pizza that night for dinner as we watched Bully Beatdown on MTV. Neither of us had ever seen it before but we enjoyed it quite a bit. Bully's were given $10,000 to fight a professional MMA fighter. In the first round they had 3 minutes and would lose $1k every time they tapped. In the second round, which was also 3 minutes, they would lose the last 5k if they were knocked out or if the ref had to stop it. It was hilarious to see these bully's actually think they could win, then eat a big slice of humble pie when they had to hand over the $10k to the people they always picked on.
Sunday was mostly cleaning and getting ready to leave. The drive back was really fun with Jesse and I singing songs together and watching Abby sing her own songs :) Thanks for the wonderful vacation Hunny! I Love you!

A warning: The picture quality is really bad. My camera broke so I had to use my camera phone.

Cinnamon Buns Ice cream....SO YUMMY!

Raging Waters

This past Saturday, we went to Raging waters with the Tripp Family. Brandon and Jesse have been friends since they were 5. It was really cute to see them walk around the park holding their own kids knowing they have been friends for so long.
Abby had a blast and wasn't afraid of the slides. We were a little worried about her and the water but it was warm and she loved it! She walked around the park holding hands with Crew (her little boyfriend) the entire day and everyone that past them made some sort of comment about how cute they were. Crew also went around the park picking flowers for Abby saying, "so pretty Abby!" Lindsi and I got to lay out for a bit. It really helped since I was 3 different colors and haven't seen my natural skin tone in forever! Thanks Brandon, Lindsi, and Crew for a great day!
