Josh's good friend from college and his adorable wife found out after 5 years of marriage that they were expecting a little baby. We are all so very excited for them and found out monday that it's a boy! They have named him Cooper. At the same ultrasound they found out not so good news about Cooper...
( this is from Melissa's facebook page)
Good Morning, here is whats going on. Our son, who we have named Cooper has a condition called Arthrogryposis, it is a rare congenital disorder that is characterized by multiple joint contractures and can include muscle weakness and fibrosis. basically Coopers little arms and legs are not forming correctly. He also has severe scoliosis. Also his chest cavity is very small and his lungs are not developing...
They worry that if he makes it to birth he will not be able to breath on his own. Cooper is now fighting for his life and we are going to have big decisions in the days and months ahead. I can not express to you the pain we are feeling right now, but we also feel a peace knowing we gave this baby to God in the beginning and will continue to give Cooper to Him daily. Thank you for all the prayers and support.
I don't know what to say to them to make the situation better, but we are deeply sad for them , but we know that they gave that baby a body and he will do his work here on this earth and return to our heavenly father when his time come.

Got my FREE ticket to New Moon for Friday night. Wondering how I got a free ticket....the ortho that works in our complex bought out a whole theatre that night and handed out two tickets for each staff member at a ton of offices as a thank you for referring patients to him. NICE! I'm super stoked and Josh isn't complaining too much either.

On Saturday us sisters through our sister-n-law a baby shower! I was so excited to get everything together and buy presents for the little guy.
I was especially proud of myself for making a hooter hider! with a little help from my mom I was able to make it for $4.38! And it only took about an hour.
We baked a ton of mini cupcakes and frosted them for the shower. They were a big hit.
I LOVE my husband so much and I look forward to any opportunity to spoil him. His birthday was on Saturday and I wanted to get him everything in the world, but no body had anything I wanted to get him! very frustrating! I think he still made out with pretty awesome gifts.
Friday my family all came over and celebrated his birthday and watched to BSU game.
He got a sleeping bag, a new north face jacket, shirts and basketball shorts, not to mention his now beloved hunting vest from his brother.

There is a dog groomers a couple doors down from the dentist office I work at. She always brings her two dogs to work with her. one being a beautiful yellow lab ( which totally reminds me of Phoebe) and a MALE STANDARD POODLE. This poor poodle is always so angry with us and I know it's cause he's a male poodle! To our surprise this is what we saw on Monday! I don't know why, but he was little extra angry this day.

(a ton of post below this one :)
Jill had surgery #3 on her knee last Monday! Poor Girl they had to replace her ACL and meniscus(sp?) again. this time around she's on old pro at getting around and managing, except at taking care of her 5 month old baby. So on Wednesday I didn't work and was able to spend all of the day there keeping her drugged and Heston happy.
I love Halloween!! I love that Josh and I can still get dressed up and have a good time. All the grand kids came over, including Josh's nephew and Heston.
Kole wouldn't put on anything that Amanda bought him except for this outfit and it was a little short and was riding up his butt. So funny! Grant= power ranger with his big black eye he got by colliding with a little girls head. Then Madelyn was the cutest lookin bumble bee ever!
Our best friend Taylor always host the Halloween party and everyone gets into it and dresses up and has fun.
