Rosie was quite excited that her news made CNN's breaking news. Personally we are really excited that she is off the View - now we can watch it without our stomachs turning. She is so fowl and disgusting. Everything she stands for and represents is just awful. Doug Wright had a major discussion this morning about her on his radio program. Let's just say ABC is better off without her!

We're Obsessed!

Maybe it's the smells, or the music, or maybe the chance to be a kid again. Whatever it is we LOVE Disneyland! Leisy and I know the real reason Disneyland is so amazing - MAGIC. Disneyland is magical.

Here are a few more!

Maybe we're morbid...

Maybe we're morbid but our latest activity has been discussing all the possible genetic disorders our child might have. It's amazing how much the absence or addition of ONE nucleotide out of millions could seriously alter the life of an individual!We've come across some really unique diseases. Here are a few of our favorites:

Maple Syrup Urine Disease - your urine smells like maple syrup
Tay Sachs - no protein to destory harmful fats that accumulate in the brain
Cytic Fibrosis - Mutation in the gene that produces sweat, digestive juices and mucus
Cri du Chat - the baby's cry sounds like a screaming cat!
Klinefelter's - caused by chromosome aneuploidy - affects male's ability to reproduce
Color Blindness - travels on the X chromosome
Huntington's disease - a trinucleotide expansion in one gene - causes major problems

Leisy's 190 students just turned in reports about genetic disorders. She was very busy grading papers - I'm SO glad she teaches Biology and not English!

Our doctor is fairly confident that our baby does not have Down's Syndrome. But I'm including that one as well. Trisomy 21 - look how dang cute!

DNA has saved the day again!

Yes that's right! Once again the DNA molecule has changed the history of the world!!

And the Biologists rejoice and praise Watson and Crick for their amazing discovery. (Kent would also like to give two "shout-outs" to Rosalind Franklin!)

DNA analysis has proven Larry Birkhead to be the father of Dannilynn. Anna Nicole may be rolling in her grave over this announcement.

my fetus' skull

Okay, so I actually think that this is adorable!! This is what the skull of a 34 week fetus looks like. My fetus is about 34 weeks.
Life is still too easy to be this pregnant! I am prepping myself for the last month, i'm sure i'll get more uncomfortable.
Hopefully I make it to the evening of the 31st. That's when I want to have the baby. Everybody cross your fingers. I figure I can think my body into waiting until at least then. Mind over matter. I'm due on the 30th.

Sabbath Worship

This is us at the Hare Krishna color festival!!! We don't know who took the picture, but it ended up on the Hare Krishna web site. Leisy and I are dead center! Leisy looks like her throat was slit open and Taylor is attacking Laney with bright orange dye. You can also see our friends around us - Gio is in the white shirt next to me with blue in his hair. His wife is visible in the corner with blue hair! Kenna has the white hat on and her husband is in front of her! Wish we all could have been there!

Kent takes his last test at BYU tomorrow!

If anybody wants to see pictures of what my final will comprise click here!

Evolution is a really cool class - It is the capstone of my Biology degree! I have to memorize all of these different structures and why they are important to human evolution!

This is Toledo, Ohio! We are getting anxious to move, get settled in and start Medical School!!! I'm sure life will be super crazy but we can't wait. I recently picked up an Anatomy book to study over the Summer since I never took Anatomy! I can't wait to start dissections! Below is a picture of the University of Toledo Medical College! This is where I will be studying my brains out everyday for the next four years! Wow! I just graduated college and now I get to go to school for another 7-8 years! It sounds awful but I'm a nerd - I really do love school.
