Elder Rammell

My brother Preston opened his mission call on the 27th at my mom and dad's house. He got it on Wednesday at his dorm at BYU, but he waited to open it until he came home. He has been called to serve in the Rio De Janeiro mission!!! We are all so excited and proud of him. He leaves for the MTC in Sao Paulo Brazil on July 15th - same day as my baby boy is due. Way to go Preston.

Oh BOY!!!!!

There is a new little Marshall MAN on his way. I had my 20 weeks ultrasound today, and we are definitely getting a boy. Since the very beginning of this pregnancy I have felt like this one was a boy, and I was spot on. I am so excited for my little guy to get here - come on summer, hurry up and get here!!!

One of the great things we did this year for Valentines Day was to cook our own dinner. We did this once before and we found that it was much cheaper, and the food was just as good - if not better than at a restaurant. This years menu consisted of thick and juicy steaks, garlic cheese bread, green salad, red raspberry punch, and chocolate dipped strawberries. The food all turned out delectable. I also set a stunning Valentines table - conversation heart center pieces, candles, fancy dishes and goblets, pedestal platters, cloth napkins, you know, the works. I wanted to post a picture, but my computer is at the moment not letting me, so I will try again later.

The best part of Valentines Day was being with my two sweethearts. They are the loves of my life and in many ways they define who I am. I thought I would list just a few reasons why I love them so much.

She comes and snuggles with me in the morning.
Singing and dancing are two of her favorite things to do.
Her "cheeser" grin in classic.
Her hugs and kisses continue to melt my heart every time.
There is not a cuter girl out there.

He is a manly man.
Always is trying to make me laugh.
Loves me even when I look ROUGH
He is forever patient.
Is a great Daddy.
He is one good looking guy!
