We did our annual tradition of The Night Under the Christmas Tree. We stayed at Lisa's and had a good time. We each got to open one present. Chris got the Cabela's Dangerous Hunt 2011 Wii Game. He's already killed a grizzly, elk, crocs, cougars, and lions. He's quite the hunter.
We had tons of fun with Rylee for her 1st Christmas. We're looking forward to next year when she will open her own gifts.

Merry Christmas to our little elf.
Don't worry...I'll lose the baby weight. :)

Rylee's personal tanning bed. We hated having her in the bili bed, it was torture not being able to hold her.
A VERY proud daddy.
Our welcome home. Thanks family!
Leaving the hospital. Figuring out how to fit her in this BIG car seat was a chore all by itself!
1st picture with daddy. Immediate love!

I thought my water broke during the night and woke Chris up at 3:45 am. We called the hospital to see if there was some way to know for sure. They suggested I come in and get checked out. We went in at 5:45 am. They checked me and said my water hadn't broken and I would probably be going home. I was sad! Then my doctor came in and asked if we wanted "spinach or ice cream". We asked for further clarification...he said I was dilated to a 4 and had an induction scheduled for 5 days out. He then asked if I wanted to keep the scheduled induction date or stay and be induced. We chose to stay.
I was started on Potocin at 8:00 am. Started having back labor. NOT fun! I ended up getting an epidural, which, ironically didn't help with the back pain. The doctor came to check me at about 12:45 pm and accidentally broke my water. By 2:00 pm I was dilated to a 7. At 3:00 pm I was dilated to a 9 1/2. The doctor decided to have me wait a while, fully dilated, to let the baby come down on it's own. I think that was a great idea! 4 sets of pushes and our baby girl was born at 5:11 pm. She had the cord wrapped around her neck twice and refused to breathe or cry. She was rushed to the corner to have 15 different nurses and doctors work on her. We were terrified. She finally took her 1st breath and was brought over to us. She has lots of blonde hair! We were very surprised, we expected our baby to be bald until the age of 3. I think she looks like her Daddy, she even has a dimple on each cheek.
She's been a great baby! She struggles with eating, but is starting to get the hang of it now. We're excited to have her home as part of our family!
Now if only we could get some sleep...

75% effaced dilated to almost 3. Hooray for progress!
It's not too late for guesses. Guess the gender, date of birth, and weight.

The baby's room is pretty much done. We got the huge poster I ordered (thinking it was coming framed) framed, ordered a mobile, our changing table/combo dresser finally arrived. It's coming together and I love it! The wall over the changing table is empty and waiting until we know what we're having. I'll probably put pictures up. My sister is making me a bed skirt and table runners. The decorations are yet to be determined, I've just put a few things out because I have no where to store them.
Now if this baby would just get here. :)

I've done some research about gestational diabetes and it scares the crap out of me. Many women with gestational diabetes have 12 pound babies! It can cause numerous complications during delivery. I'm hoping this horrible test comes back with some positive news. However, I'm planning on making major changes to my diet, regardless. I'm scared!
If you know anything about gestational diabetes, or how to survive the test I'm taking next week...I'd love your thoughts or suggestions!

I had my gestational diabetes doctor appointment and testing done yesterday. I HATE needles and despise giving blood. This is my least favorite part of pregnancy, the fact that I have to be poked with needles. I almost pass out every time! It's even worse now that I'm pregnant. How I'll do an epidural is beyond me!
Baby Francom seems to be growing and developing perfectly. We pray for this to continue. The doctor loves that there's lots of activity being felt every day.
We've finished the nursery. Chris did an amazing job on the paneling. The color scheme is orange, brown, and white. I've been given lots of hand-me-downs from my sisters and have had my work cut out for me as far as sorting, cleaning, and organizing all of the baby clothes they've given me. It might have been easier if I knew the gender of the baby, but the surprise is worth it!

I wish the pictures were better quality, but I took them with my phone. It still demonstrates how cute these girls are and how Sadie's memory will live on forever! Sadie's info is available at: http://sadiehuish.blogspot.com/
Love you Huish family!

He also took me to the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival. We had no idea there were so many beautiful flowers back there, a waterfall, some unique trees, and a pond. It's been a well kept secret, I guess. Next year we'll go when we have time to stay more than an hour. It's the perfect place to take a picnic. Lessons learned.
Chris is a great photographer. He had fun with the early showing moon and an artist painting the tulips. Too bad he was in shorts and we didn't have jackets, it started to get pretty chilly once the sun went down. We hit In-n-Out afterward, making it a perfect FHE!

April seems to be the month of birthdays for our family. Brad turned 32 on April Fool's Day, Kaylynn turned 5 on the 8th, my mom turned the ripe old age of 65 on the 12th, Natalie turns 2 on the 16th, Jessie will be 22 on the 18th, Chris will be 31 on the 20th, and I'm going to be **30** on the 22nd! It also includes other nieces and nephews birthdays - Rachel, Justin, Karmindy, Lynnea, Brett, Clay...the list goes on and on! I can't afford the month of April! This is a picture of Chris last year on his 30th. He LOVES ice cream cakes. I'm hoping he's getting me a chocolate cake from Magleby's for my birthday. I could eat one of their cakes all by myself, in one sitting. YUM!
Chris has purchased my birthday present. He says I'm not allowed to tell people what it is yet. But...I don't care what he says! HA! He's taking me to the U2 concert in Salt Lake City on June 3rd. It will be an anniversary date too. Our 3rd anniversary! How time has flown. It's been a great 3 years. I love being married to this man!

One of my clients had become jaded regarding her relationships with her Novell sales representatives. They had grown accustomed to having a Client Exec to support them, and were feeling the lack strongly. Even though they spent a quarter of a million dollars on Novell maintenance every year, this client felt that Novell was just not responsive to their needs. My contact was not the person in charge or the major decision maker; however, she had a lot of influence as she deals with the day-to-day operations of the client’s IT department. I knew gaining her trust would help gain the trust of the decision maker. I started gaining her confidence by responding quickly to all any requests she made. Then I proposed a renewal plan outlining everything that needed to be done to get their maintenance renewal plan on schedule. I proposed dates and action items to accomplish this goal. I asked if there were any other steps that needed to be taken, and asked if she agreed with this plan. She did agree—and execution was easy, since we both knew what was expected by the other, there was no pressure or time constraints, and everything was already planned out well ahead of time.
Result: Our renewal came in two weeks ahead of time, without any complications, with additional revenues accrued. Because of the relationship we had forged, I was able to defuse a potentially bad situation that rose from price increases in two of their four purchased Novell product groups. In fact, our relationship grew so strong that we held face-to-face meetings to discuss the possibilities of adding further Novell products to solve some of their other pain points. This opened up new potential revenue possibilities that could bring in well over $150,000 in upsell revenues. (Chris Francom, Novell Internal Sales)

She loved the icing. She had so much fun opening her presents and playing with them.
