Wish I didn't have to but...

We went private. I know, it's really inconvenient, I'd be the first to tell you that.

But when people you don't know start following your blog it makes you think that maybe posting your life for the whole world to see isn't such a good idea. (P.S. You should check your "stats" on your blog to see how people are finding their way onto yours)

I don't want someone to break into my house and eat some of our chocolate chips. Or worse.

Such is life in this fallen sphere.

Montana and some picture treats for you

A couple of pictures to share with you all.  We went to visit Ben's grandparents for Labor Day in Montana. I got to go inside of my favorite mansion that they've turned into a museum. It was beautiful!

Love the silk damask on the walls and that molding!

Gorgeous staircase. All the floors, stairs, etc. are original to the 1900 house.

I have this thing for window seats.

Beautiful entryway

Such a classy dining room. It was about here we realized we weren't supposed to be taking pictures. Whoops.

In front of the mansion. It has 25 rooms and 15 bathrooms!

The tree-lined driveway. Picturesque. 

Montana is beautiful!

Next item of business: I sewed a hooded towel, thanks to instructions from my sister Sarah. It is probably the cutest thing you have ever seen. I can't wait to put my baby in it :)

I painted a frame for Ben to take to work so he won't forget what I look like! I have this thing for Winnie the Pooh. This is a favorite quote of his:
And yes, I just realized I spelled "Winnie" wrong. Oh well, it the thought that counts.

I'm in charge of the Flake Family Yearbook this year. For one of the pages I wanted to get a picture of everyone in our family having FHE, all over the nation. This is a cheezy pose but here's me & Ben having Family Home Evening:

29.5 weeks!!
P.S.- Thanks for the maternity shirt Mel.
