Happenings...

What have we been up to? Good question. Not much. We go to the beach when we can, I read and Brian surfs. Most importantly, we have been taking time to prepare for little Ruby to come by getting all the little things and putting together the car seat and stroller. We are just as ready as I think we can be for her... I'm sure once she gets here we will find more that we need, but for now we are A OK! Just so you all are aware, Ruby can be making her debut any day now. Her due date is March 13th but last week I was dilated to a 2.5 and my doctor said that I should expect her to come a week to two weeks early. Pretty exciting. She is just as anxious as us.




Next, I dont know if any of you heard but there was a Tsunami warning for the state of HI. I am so very grateful that nothing serious happened. It was a very stressful situation for me and if it wasn't for the power of the priesthood and the faith that I along with Brian and our families and friends I dont know that I would have been able to find comfort. We were woken up at 3:30 Saturday morning by banging on our door. We both jolted out of bed and Brian left to fulfill his responsibility as an RA for our apartment complex to wake others and let them know what was going on. After about an hour since his leaving I started to freak out a little... I knew that I could possibly have the baby any day and the thought of not be able to go to the hospital really scared me. So, I took a shower hoping to calm myself down. Once I got out of the shower the fear inside me grew stronger and luckily my parents were aware of the warning and were calling to check on us. I talked with them for awhile and then began to cry. After speaking with them I called Brian and asked him to come home so we could talk and plan what it was we should do. He remained so calm and tried to put my mind at ease telling me everything would be fine. He called the hospital and got direction from them for what we should do. Of course they advised us to not go down there. He then gave me a blessing and it was amazing the immediate comfort and peace I had. I know that our Heavenly Father was watching over us that day and I feel truly blessed to have married a worthy man who can call upon God and ask for his blessings. I am grateful for him and his reassuring words, calmness and love.
We are lucky to live where we do, we are just far enough from the ocean that we didnt have to evacuate our home. They just advised those who live on the bottom floors to move up to the 2nd floor. We were lucky enough to have the company of the Wynes family join us in our home. As we were anticipating what was going to happen we were able to enjoy each others company and keep our minds at ease. Oh and Brian went to Foodland once it opened to gather water, ice and snacks to last us in case something was to happen. He basically had to fight for water... pretty intense!
Thanks you all for your thoughts and prayers that day. It meant a lot to us! We love you.

Here is just a little clip of the day... "The calm before the storm" Also, a sweet shot of my big belly!


Finally, a picture of me. 38 weeks!
