4th of July weekend!

Wow what an eventful weekend!! Thursday Justin and AJ headed up to go play on the watercraft and set up a campsite... Mother Nature didn't much agree with their plans because they ended up just setting up camp in pouring rain!!! The married kids, minus me I had to work, spent Thursday night and Friday in the great outdoors and judging by Justin's sunburn, had a blast!!

I went into work on Friday only to leave early and head to the hospital! No worries kids, the baby is still cookin despite his apparent desire to be a 4th of July baby!! So my doc put me on bedrest, which we interpreted to mean I could totally go to the parade and watch the fireworks from my front porch! Haha the fireworks really were amazing tho!

So we're in limbo now with bedrest or no bedrest, I find out the verdict tomorrow!!! Cross your fingers kids cuz honestly I think I will go nuts if I can't go to work and be out and about!!

The family is doin well in Japan it sounds like they are having a blast from the short conversations we have with them on Facebook!

Well gotta scoot, I have messes to clean up from my niece!!

Melissa, Justin and TBA Christensen

Another one

So I had a blog...and then I forgot the password and deleted my email...yay me. So here's the new one!! Big news in life includes me being PREGNANT!! Pictures to come soon... I gotta talk one of my siblings to take one of me so I'm not rockin the Myspace mirror pics...hott.

The bouncing baby BOY is due Sept. 4, 2009 and as cool as it would be to have a baby with 9/9/09 as the birthday... no way am I waiting 5 more days to meet him! I'm pretty sure he is a future MMA fighter with the way he kicks all the time...Justin says he's just excited to be alive lol.

In other news, the family is in the final(hahaha) stages of packing up the house for the big exodus to Japan. The movers come Monday and as it stands they might just turn around and say "No way Jose we ain't touchin that" lol. Really tho I'm sure it's been hard to get a whole houseful decluttered in the two weeks notice that my parents were given! 8 years of 12 peoples stuff...that's a lot of stuff!!

They ship out on the 22nd of June, stop in Oahu, Hawaii for a few days and then fly over to Japan!! I'm almost jealous of everything they get to do!! But I have my own adventures stateside.. ie MOTHERHOOD!!!

I'm so excited to meet this little guy! Justin is too, he usually says hi to my belly before saying hi to me! I'm so impatient I want it to be September already!

Ok I'm off to lunch with the fam, only a few more times I get to go with them!
