We're still here...

I've been pretty bad at updating the blog lately.
Here are a few things we've done this past month...

Our ward held a Box Car Derby for all the primary kids. I guess they do it annually. The kids all made their own box cars (with Brad's help), then decorated them. They really had a lot of fun racing their cars around the gym, then sitting in them at the 'drive in' while watching a movie and eating popcorn and cotton candy.

Kiana got an award at school!
The school has a program they do called 'Character Counts'. Obviously, it's to teach the kids to have good character. At a school wide assembly they recognized one student from each class for having good character and Kiana was chosen to receive the award for her second grade class!

Kiana is on the far left.
Her teacher wrote a sweet tribute to her that was read as she got her award...

"Before January, we thought we had a great class and then Kiana came. She always comes to class with a smile on her face and can have us all laughing at anytime. Kiana has shown us how to face adversity. Against all odds she has learned to kick a football. Everyday little miracles happen because of Kiana."

Also, we have been preparing for the arrival of the newest member of our family!
This is me at almost 38weeks!
I've started contracting and dialating (a little), so hopefully she makes her enterance into this world soon! We are all so anxious to hold and to love her.
