The past three weeks we had been taking child preparedness classes on Thursday nights. We learned a lot….probably more than any books we’ve read so far. The teacher Sherry Schroeder was extremely engaging and had gobs of information for first timers. We learned techniques to relax during labor, what we’ll experience after the birth physically, and what to expect with a newborn. We also asked quite a few questions about the different narcotics, epidurals, and other medicines. I’m going to try my hardest to go drug free and be as natural as possible. Anything can happen that we can’t foreshadow. We have about 12 more weeks to go!

This past Monday we drove over to Western Materials in Yakima and picked out exterior rock that goes in front of the house. This rock is called Sierra Mountain Ledge. It should match well with the stucco color and trim we chose.
Afterwards, we drove over to Prosser for Valentine’s Day dinner at Wine O’Clock. It was very tasty and there was even a live singer who sang songs from the 40s and 50s. Very romantic
On Tuesday I went to a Stampin Up group and learned how to make these three cards. They turned out super cute!

Roofing in 40 MPH winds. We felt so bad for the workers. The did such a phenomenal job regardless of the wind.
Exterior doors were installed and HVAC began
Tar paper on the roof
The double slider was installed last week that leads to the upper deck
All the plumbing was installed last week, this is the spigot for the pot filler behind our stove to make it easier to fill water for our tea kettle or pots for soup or pasta instead of filling in the sink then carrying it over
Our Carrier HVAC system on its side attached to the ceiling in the garage to give us plenty of floor space
Some of the door handles to the exterior doors
These doors have built in blinds so we can slide them open and closed for day light
We had our windows installed the week before and the sidelights and transom on the door.
We had a bunch of hose bibs put in around the house. One in the front of the house, one on each of the decks, and one on the ground level near the garden storage.
We have a view of the Mormon Temple from our deck. We can see the golden Angel Merona on the top.
