    I can't wait to see the beading. I have no sewing skills so I am impressed that you are doing this!

      WELL CHICKIES...We got our bands on Friday!! YAY!!

      I must say though that I am not too happy with the fact that they don't match!! FI hated gold and unfortunately he bought me a gold e-ring so nothing he looked at that was gold made him remotely happy. The thing is, I told him many moons ago - before he asked me to marry him, that if we got married I wanted silver or white gold...did he listen? NO. SO NOW - both of my rings are gold and his is tungsten. My ring is getting sized so I won't have it for a couple of weeks. I did poll 4 of my friends who are recently married (within the past 4 years) and NONE of their rings match. WHY?? Hubbies have all lost their rings and had to buy new ones! LOL!!
      Congrats on getting the rings. I got FI's band already, but mine are being made to match my e-ring. They should be done in August. I can't wait to see how they turn out.

      I think we might give coloring books and crayons at the wedding to keep the kids occupied. The hand held games would be a good idea. I know my brother has a Nintendo DS, but the other one is only 3 and I don't think he gets video games yet. Maybe we can get something else for him.

      FI and I also got a new camera on Friday. We decided we would get that instead of doing wedding gifts for each other. I will take pics of the stuff I got so far and post. Be prepared for lots of pics coming soon.

        I have started working on the welcome books for the OOT bags, but not quite done. I won't be able to finish all the pages until I have final numbers for the trip, but they have been started and they are on the comp ready to be added to. Once I get more done on this, the pics will come.

        Totally not wedding related, it has been so hot here that my son basically slept and ate yesterday, and when you would pick him up, he just felt slimmy from sweating. It was so gross and I felt bad for him. Both kids went in the tub and got ready for bed, and Justin woke up 3 or 4 times during the night because of the heat. Before Hailey went to bed, she was asking for a cookie and since I said no, she had to keep asking, in case I changed my mind of course. Suddenly she told me that she spit on the couch, and when I looked at her, she had vomitted all down the front of her and all over the couch. As soon as I got her and the couch cleaned up, she aske for a cookie again and said she wouldn't spit again....of course she is gagging before and after saying this. Once again, I think it is from the heat, and our apt heats up soooooo bad in the evenings because of the way it faces. It feels nice right now, but wait till later!!!!

          Oh no, poor babies! Is there anything you can do to cool it down? I'm sure you've tried all of the obvious. I would die without any AC! Keep them hydrated. Poor little guys - I feel terrible for you!

          On a side note - we finally picked the groomsman shirts. They are getting these in beige.

          One more thing checked off!!

            We do have fans going and then open the windows after the sun goes down. If we open them before the sun goes down, it gets hotter in here as all the heat just swooshes in. They have been drinking lots, and I think I will take them over to my Mom's so my sister can watch them there. It is cooler at their place then it is in here.

            Right now it is still cool, but the sun is almost over the roof and shining down on the side and front of our place.

            I'm glad you found your GM shirts. Another thing to tick off the list. I can't believe how quickly Nov is coming!!!

              Thanks. November is in 3 months! I can't believe it! Since our wedding is in the beginning of November - it just seems so soon!

              I am off of work on Oct 31st, so I feel like I should be done by the end of October. We're almost there girls!!

              Before we had AC i would just open the windows on the opposite side of the house. It is so hard for the little ones. Let them play in the tub with cool water - maybe that will help. FI called me earlier and said that our little guy was sick too. He had a lot of sun yesterday. Then he got home and slept from 3pm until this morning. He woke up SO hungry at 6:00 this morning. I heard him when I was in the shower, he said, "Daddy - I want some cereal NOW!"

              Hopefully he is okay when I get there.

                I wish I could open windows on the other side, but we live in a 4-plex so we only have 2 outside walls that have windows and the sun gets them all in the evening.

                As for the AC, only recently have people started getting AC up here, since usually we have the heat on all winter, and the summers are usually just nice. The last few years we have had some HOT summers though!!!!

                Hope your little guys starts feeling better!!!!

                  Ok, so here is a quick summary of my night and then I am going to bed! I had to work for another nurse tonight since I am so nice, and I decided to take my booking forms for Photo Souvenir with me to finally fax off. It was retarded when we started but finally got things under control just in time for me to go for supper. I went and had supper and realized when I got home to eat that I had forgot my forms. So I took them back with me and went to relieve for supper in the ER. While I was over there, I faxed off my forms. That felt good to do that. The ER was not busy and finally I got back to my duties.
                  I was just about to start meds at 8:30pm when the ER nurse yelled at me to get over there. There was a girl that came in having a lot of pain and she was only 33 weeks along. We are a small rural hospital and our first reaction is to get them to the sity ASAP. Well this woman was already 7 cm, so she was going no where! We got her over to L & D and the Dr checked her again and she was 8-9 cm dilated. We called in the second on call Dr who had been working all day until 7pm, and when he got there he checked her and she was fully. We had her start pushing at 9pm and she delivered a beautiful baby boy at 9:34pm. He was doing so great too, but since he is so little, we had him shipped out by air ambulance to the city. I was supposed to be off work at 11:30pm, but finally left there at 12:15am. Not bad, and there was still stuff to do with the Mom that we couldn't do with the transport team all in there, but my Mom came on shift and she was taking over.
                  My kids were over at my Mom's tonight too, and Justin is still there, but Hailey woke up before my Mom left for work and wanted to come, so she did and I brought her home. Once getting back here, I got online to pay the deposit for our pics and it feels sooooo good to have that done. Just as I started writing this I heard the plane fly over that was taking the baby to the city too. Cute little thing!!!! Okay, Goodnight!

                    Wow that is quite a night you had!!! Very exciting for you guys!! So am I understanding correctly, your mom works at the same place? What a miracle child birth is! Glad it all went well.

                    and happy for you that you got your photo stuff done you had wanted to! That is a relief!

                      Sounds like you hada busy night Erica.

                      I booked photosouvenir too, i'm a little scared because they told me not to send my deposit in, they would bill me for it later. They told me something about only being allowed so much transactions on paypal per month and that i shouldnt be worried. But of course I am!

                      Celina - nice shirts. The custom shirts are really expensive so i don't blame your fi for not wanting to order them. We couldn't find any other shirt we both liked in a color i wanted, fi was really picky about the shirts too so that made it harder. So finally we saw the custom shirts and both agreed on them. We have a really small wedding party so it's not too bad.
