Such a blessing...

I forgot to post pictures from Cambree's baby blessing!! She was blessed March 1, 2009 in my old home ward!! I was so excited and happy she was able to be blessing in the ward I basically grew up in. Cambree looked like a little princess in her dress!!

After the blessing everyone came over for some treats!
I had these three cakes made especially for this occassion from the lady who made my wedding cake! There was actually a story to these three cakes. The day before the blessing I went in to pick them up and the lady FORGOT to make two of the three cakes!! I mean I can see forgetting to do one of the cakes.. but two of them?!?!
My bestest friend Aubs and Mike with lil Paige. I just love Paige... she is a total doll! Plus she totally loves Cambree. She calls her "Chambree Kae"... they also share the same middle name of Kae!
Paige Kae! She loves poising for pictures as you can tell.. she is a future prom queen!
Payton! He is a character for sure. He told Aubrey and Mike they were staying for exactly one hour!! lol... I'm guessing he didn't realize how long an hour was...
My awesome and adorable cousin Mandy with her husband Jake.... they haven't been married that long. I need to lend them Cambree for a few hours so they can what having a kid is really like lol!
My other bestest friend Jerrilynn and cute lil Peyton. She calls herself Peyton Manning... I think her mom has something to do with that though...
Jerrilynn and Cambree...Cambree was "over" all the picture taking...
This picture is classic of Jusin! Look how sweet he is with Cambree!!!
Cambree was like... not one more picture... Aubs was practicing since she was due any minute to have her third baby!
I'm pretty sure Mike wasn't thrilled I made him poise with Cambree... lol
This group was nothing but trouble!!!! It's the Flanders clan plus a future Flander...
This is "Big K"... with "Little K".... they are quite the twosome.. Big K likes to whisper secrets to Little K.... I suspect they are plotting against me!!
Cambree is safe in the arms of grandma.....
Well that was Cambree's blessing day. It was such an awesome day and I'm so glad I got to share it with all of my favorite people!!

It's all about the knee's....

Well I don't know how many of you recall the famous story of how I found out I was pregnant. So there I was back in May of 2007 .. in my fashionable surgical gown waiting in the bed to be taken back to have surgery on my knee.... I was sitting there nervously thinking about what was about to happen. Mind you I have had 5 previous surgeries on my knees so really there wasn't much I should have been scared about .. and quite frankly I think its about time we can start calling them bum knees because they aren't your average knees... Anyway so there I was... waiting... when I received the shock of my life.. the nurse came in with the results of my routine urine sample and informed me that I was PREGNANT and not going to be able to have the much needed surgery. I was in shock and complete disbelief and naturally I thought the nurse had made a huuuuge mistake and I was silently calling her mean names in my head.

Well to make a long story short, she was right... I was a few weeks along...and now after 8 months of being pregnant (my baby came 3 1/2 weeks early) i had my darling baby and was more than ready to get this knee finally fixed!!
So I went to see Dr. Murray today and I got set up for surgery on March 31st. Now you might remember I was due to fly back to England on March 30th... but now I will have to extend a few weeks. After my surgery I can't fly back for about two weeks due to possible blood clots since it is such a long flight back. So you see the life of Erin Lindbloom Christensen is never normal. At least this time when I am backing anxiously waiting to be taken back for surgery I can rest assured that I won't be pregnant!!!!

Lazy Sunday Afternoons...

So I came in to check on Cambree who was suppose to be snoozing and found her reading a book!!
After she finished the book we decided to take a nap together..
I was sound asleep when I realized something was different, I looked up and Cambree had stolen my iPod and was listening to Britney Spears!!
She invited her best friend Miss Pig to join her in the Boppy...
Soon she got tired again and next thing I know she has dosed off.....
I don't know about you, but we love Sundays around here!!
