Weird Dreams...

I don't normally remember my dreams, but I definitely have been having some lately. Let me share some of them with you.

This morning, I woke up, rolled over and asked Mike, "What makes you think you can buy a trailer for our new home?" Now, let me explain.

In my dream, Mike and I were looking at houses. We were joined with his parents and my parents. We were looking at all of these beautiful homes that were HUGE! Mike and his dad went off and came back a little later and said, "We found something that we can afford."

We went into a town home. This was a beautiful town home and for whatever reason, I kept thinking it was worth a couple hundred thousand (a very expensive town home.) We started walking through it and went through a door into another town home. For whatever reason, all these town homes were connected to each other and we kept walking through all of them, past families doing their things in their own homes. Yeah, kinda weird, I told ya! we finally walk out onto this deck and go down the stairs.

There it was. The home Mike bought for us. It was a trailer. Now, I am not talking about the kind of trailer that you find in a trailer park. I am not even talking about a 5th wheel or the kind of trailer that you pull behind a truck. It was the kind of trailer that you put ON THE BACK of the truck!!

I just remember going in and seeing it and thinking, "I cannot believe that this is what Mike bought for us to live in, permanently." To top it off, he bought it from my uncle who I haven't seen for about 5 years. So we are walking toward the trailer and he says to me, "You look really familiar to me," and all I could respond was, "Seriously? I am Terry's daughter!"

Mike better not buy me a trailer to live in.

My other really weird dream was the one where my baby was born. It was born at about 20 weeks but wasn't in the hospital. This was before we knew for sure that our baby was a little boy, so I didn't even see the baby, it was always just wrapped up in a blanket. Well, I carried my baby around with me everywhere, as a good mom should. Because we hadn't been prepared for this baby, (who is at 20 weeks?) we didn't have any car seat to put him in the car. Now this is the really weird part, the baby rode behind my rear view mirror. That is right, whenever I got into the car to go anywhere, this is where my baby rode. Don't ask me how he stayed there, he just did.

I have heard that you have weird dreams when you are pregnant, I just hope that they don't get any weirder than this. Although they do cause laughs when I tell people about them!

It is official...

We got another ultra sound today and our baby is officially a BOY!!!

That means lots of blue, father and son outings, fishing (another fisher??) and lots of dirt, dog tails, snails, etc. We are excited!

I guess my cub scout calling is just preparing me for what I will need to know in 8 years. I will be a pro at getting boys through their wolf badge, hahaha. Mike is excited because he LOVES scouts and will love doing all the boy scout stuff with his son.

Now to decide a nursery and trucks? We will see.

We may have changed the name from Hayden Jack to Ethan Michael, there may still be some debate on that...we like them both...we will keep you updated.

After my graduation, my parents were awesome and helped us host a party to celebrate. Everybody pitched in and brought yummy things to share like, potato salads, green salads, yummy deserts, and fruity salads. My mom made some of her great southern bbq. Mmmmm, it was so yummy.

During the event, Mike wanted many pictures (he had since replaced the battery on our camera.) I was fully enjoying talking to everybody so he turned the camera over to our nephew, Tait. Tait loves the camera, but I told him that he needed to take pictures of everybody in the room if he was using my camera. These are the pictures that he felt were the most important to include. Prepare yourself for some fun pictures!

You can't have a party without lights, right?
And where would we be without the fire alarm?
The garbage can was the most important party element.
Can't have a party without funny faces, eh?
It is hard to take a 6 year old photographer seriously, so easy to interrupt his shots.Little Miles enjoying the yummy food.
And of course, Mike.

I thoroughly enjoyed getting home and seeing the pictures that Tait took for us. Quite enjoyable, although not all very flattering, must be the angle. I think Tait has some talent for photography, wouldn't you agree?

I want to thank my family and friends for the support they have given me throughout the years, and years, and years of my schooling. As my dad told me, "My eternal student can no longer be an eternal student..." We'll see, more schooling may be in my future, one day, in the maybe far future.

I must admit that I love my friends and family. They have supplied me with pictures of behind the scenes and of my graduation. I left my camera with Mike (a lot of good that did as the battery finally decided to give up the ghost and after being charged all night didn't even allow for one picture) and so I didn't have a camera in the back.

The event was bright and early on Friday, May 1, and I was so stinken excited! When I went to take my cap and gown out of the back seat of the car, I started tearing up (pregnancy hormones or normal tear fest?) but made it through without crying. I was mostly just excited. Yeah!!! I am done with school!

Here are some pictures of the grand event (I apologize in advance for ALL the pictures...)
