It's a..........

Well Stephanie and I were finally able to find out the gender of our baby! We have thought it was a boy for a while though Stephanie was holding out hope for a girl. Truthfully, we were just excited to know more than anything and now we do.......

As you can see from this awesome picture...IT'S A BOY!!! We are so excited!!! I told Stephanie the reason it would be a boy is because we already had names picked out for a girl. So now we are trying to decide on his name which is proving to be difficult! Any suggestions would be helpful!!!

This is a really cool picture my sister-in-law Jeani did for us. I think it is awesome! Thanks Jeani!!

LSAT Score...finally!!!

So everyone had that had taken the lsat test said that when the score gets released a very to the point email is sent and you would just know how you did. I told Stephanie that my email it would go to is linked to my phone so it would probably be a very random time I would find out. Well, tonite we were out to dinner with Steph's family celebrating Jeff's return from his mission to the Dominican Republic. So I went to check my phone for the Yankee's score and I noticed I had 2 emails. Didn't think much of it until I went into my email and the subject line for the first one was "LSAC SCORE". I was freakin' out, found Steph and made her sit down with me before I read the score. I opened it up and saw that I got a 154 or 60th percentile. I was expecting a 155 and missed it by 1 wrong question! haha We went to my parents' and I got on their computer to look at the reports they have and saw that I did much better than I had normally done on Reading Comprehension and Logical Reasoning but my normally strong area Logic Games failed me! If I scored in Logic Games like I had been on practice tests, I would have scored a 160 which is only 6 points higher but is the 81st percentile!!! Huge jump! Oh well, I did my best and I'm happy its done. Now time to send in all my applications and see where we will be living for at least the next 3 years!!!

Another post about Football... SO it's a big part of life for us this time of year...

Monday Night Football !!!Well we had a really fun Family Home Evening this week. Israel was celebrating that he no longer has LSAT class on Monday nights so he decided we should have a Monday night Football party. We invited our families and we "cooked out" meaning we barbecued. It was fun.
I made home made potato salad, for the first time in my life. You see we have to make home made potato salad because there are a couple Ortegas that DON'T eat onions and where can you buy Potato salad without onions??? Nowhere! But it was fun to make it! Israel being the Man was in charge of the barbecuing. HE did GREAT! After all, his apron does say "Natural born griller" on it! we had Brat-worst, hot dogs and Hamburgers... YUM! Also my favorite... he BBQ ed some corn on the cob...SO YUMMY!!! (Forgive that I am so focused on what we ate... I'm pregnant.) So anyways, the food was yummy and the company was fabulous! I really enjoy our families. The game was pretty good too. Sadly it was not a game that we were extremely excited for. It was the Cowboys and Panthers at Dallas. It wasn't awful... I just wasn't too into it. Not a fan of either team in particular.
