The Mother-In-Law Files

I have decided to start a file called "mother-in-law" to record all the thoughtful things my MIL does for me and our family. I want to remember them for when I am a mother-in-law. I'll keep a running list here too.


1) Take the grandchildren shopping to pick out presents "from them" to give their parents. This is what Hunter picked out for me.

Is this not stinkin' adorable?!?!

Jay picked out an electric toothbrush for me (with electric floss...he's really excited about that!) and ammo for John. Hunter picked out jeans for John and the above purse for me. LOVE IT!

2) Remember what it's like to be young with (or without) a family, realize that money is tight at times and ask them what is one thing that you skip buying at the grocery store (or wherever) because you just can't justify the purchase.

Mine was silver polish. Guess what was in my stocking! And guess who has the shiniest jewelry in town! ;)

This is just the beginning of the thoughtfulness that is shown to us every day.

The Sweet Little One

I had my ultrasound 2 weeks ago. Actually, on our 10 year anniversary! This was a great way to spend our evening together...gazing at our sweet baby! Everything looks beautiful! We didn't peek...even though it was so tempting! I'm feeling great and looking forward to welcoming this little one into our new home.

How stinkin' cute is that foot? One inch long...oh my...

(these are iphone pics of the pic so the quality isn't great but you get the idea!)
