The End of one phase, the soon beginning of another!!

I can't believe that in just a couple short days or weeks our family will move from three to four! Time has flown by!! I feel like I just had Ella. She has been a joy in our family and I hope our son is just as wonderful. We still have no idea what to name him, I'm not exactly sure what we are waiting for. I guess I am hoping that when we see him, we will know. Our list is getting longer and longer. I am progressing well, and hoping that he will wait at least one more week! I sure hate the baby guessing game! We will keep you posted! Here are a couple pictures of Ella when she arrived. They sure are fun!

Easter Weekend!

We love Easter and we really enjoyed this weekend with our friends. Ella and I went Easter Egg hunting with her friends Seth, Thomas, and Tanner. We first went to the park, but that was really short, so we went over to the mall. The mall was extremely lame, so we went over to Lee's grocery store and they had a cute little path to follow for the kids to get easter candy. We had fun getting out and playing. Then we dyed Easter Eggs that night and Ella had fun putting all the stickers on.

On Easter morning Ella found the basket the Easter Bunny left her and she enjoyed opening all the eggs that she found and eating all the candy. Then we went to church. We could not get her to sit still in her pretty Easter dress from Grandma to take a picture. Oh well, she was cute!

A Birthday Weekend!!!

Well, unfortunately the weekend is coming to an end and the birthday celebration is about over. The weekend was fun. It began with a trip to Salt Lake City to see Disney on Ice. We spent the morning shopping in Park City and I love the outlet malls there. It isn't quite as fun with a little one because she only lasted about 2 hours, but we got to go to a few stores. Then we went to Red Robin and to the show. It was well done and we love Disney! Ella had fun, but she was pretty tired without a nap, so mostly she watched with a blank stare.

When we came home I was excited to be surprised by my sister Marisa there waiting for us! She came up for the weekend. It totally made my weekend. It is fun to have family there with you on your birthday! We chatted and played games, watched movies, shopped, and of course ate and ate. She made a wonderful meal and we had a fun time! Thanks for coming Marisa!

Pike and Ella

Last year our neighbors bought a dog that Ella has fell in love with. We always go over to her house and play with Pike. We were playing over there a couple days ago and they took pictures that I wanted to post and let everyone else see as well. We have great neighbors and Pike is like a friend for Ella to play with. Here she is last year and then now:

They love to stand at the window together and look at the cars going by!

Then she found out that pikes kennel could be used as a fun tunnel too!

He gave her a nice wet one when she came out!!

Hartzheim Family Makeovers!

So, I just got finished chopping my hair and now Ragnar's new glasses came. We are both sporting our new looks. We've been looking at glasses for a while, but didn't want to spend a million dollars on them. Well, we were told about this website from our neighbors and were a little skeptical at first. It is called It has glasses starting at $8.00 up to $20.00 with prescriptions and everything. You have to already have your prescription and you can pick out a pair and they will send them to you. We decided for only $40 (that is how much we spent with the prescription sunglasses and shipping as well) we couldn't be out too much. We can now say we are pleased and would recommend you looking into it if you need new glasses and don't want to spend too much. It sounded too good to be true, but it wasn't! I think they look nice on Rags, especially for $40!!!

I can't Believe I did it!!!

After all these years of having long hair I'm starting a new trend! I finally tried something new and cut my hair. I know it doesn't sound like much to most people, but for me long hair has always been my comfort. I did it though and even with Ragnar calling the salon to make sure he didn't need to buy more kleenex. Funny kid. Hopefully I'll still like it in a few minutes. You know how us pregnant ladies are, things change from minute to minute.

Basketball Fun!

We are sad to report that our USU basketball team played there last home game tonight. We have loved going to games and watching our team. Our famous Jaycee Carroll is graduating and it feels weird knowing we were here for his freshman season. We are getting old!! They won every home game this year and we got to go to most. Ella loves "ball" and we love taking her. I guess we'll see if we are still around in Logan for next year's season! Go Aggies!!
