I love Valentines Day!!!

Ryan totally surprised me with flowers today. I love them!! I had told him not to worry about Valentines this year since we had our new washer coming. However, he did anyway and I love it! It wasn't a fun week with the stinky mess our broke down washer left us, so it was the perfect pick me up! Thanks hubby!!!

China Dress

Ryan picked up this dress for Olivia when he was in Malaysia last week. She was so excited to wear it on Sunday. I LOVE having my own little dolly to dress up and fix hair and such!!

It's a BOY!!!

We are excited to announce that we are having a boy! He was much more cooperative at this last ultrasound thankfully. I didn't get a picture this time, but I assure you he's cute, and doing great!

The Hooper Guys

I just like this picture of all the Hooper guys in Ryan's family. I think its funny that Ryan is on the shorter end of the Hooper pictures, but crazy tall in the Larson pictures. lol

The Empty Sea

At dinner tonight we were talking about Uncle Morgan being on his mission in Brazil. Olivia asked where in Brazil he was and I told her he was at the MTC in Brazil. Grant then asked me why Brazil had an "empty sea"...its not a desert there is it?!! Gotta love 5 year olds. lol

I've been tagged! Here are 7 weird/random things about me...

1. I am a HUGE High School Musical fan. I love both movies. If I wasn't so sore and huge from being preggers, I'd know all the dances by now too! I'm too cheap to pay full price for the dvds and cds, but every time its on tv or the radio I'm there. And if I wasn't so old (and cheap) I'd buy some HSM stuff...shirts, folders, valentines etc!!!

2. This one is for Angela...I love watching the Golden Girls too!! Thats hilarious.

3. I LOVE fabric stores. I think that is my favorite place to shop. I like to go there, get ideas from the fabric, and then get everything I need to make whatever I'm making all at one spot, (unless its Sally's, then you just get what you need there and get everything else from walmart because Sally's is way expensive!).

4. I am OCD about being on time. I don't like this about me at all. I drive Ryan nuts with this too. He is always on time, but I have to stress about it and go early just incase of traffic or some other delay. I have even cried because I was worried I'd be late to something. Seriously, what is wrong with me????

5. I don't like to cook. I know I'm such a disgrace to my excellent cooking mom, but I really don't like it that much. It is frustrating to spend hours on a new recipe and then it doesn't turn out. Such a waste of time. I would love to be a good cook, but I know I don't put enough time into it to actually learn something.

6. I still practice sight singing whenever I can. I love doing this and I guess I never really quit after college. There's nothing like finding a new line of music and sight singing. (I know I'm a nerd, oh well, might as well embrace it!)

7. I LOVE popcorn. Espescially movie popcorn with the butter layered, and then I go put more on it myself. If its not shamefully greasy its not right!

Okay, I tag Julee, Vanessa, Charlotte, and Cassie!!
