About a month ago, Rich and I found that my brother Tyson and his wonderful wife Krsytle are going to have a baby in October! Awesome news! The Fredrickson clan is starting to grow! Max will have no excuse to be the only spoiled little grandchild with a cousin on the way (sorry, Carrie and Ryan)! It was funny how Tyson and Krysle told us because they said they had a "snowboard video" that Tyson had been working on. I didn't think much of it because Tyson snowboards almost everday since he teaches lessons. Well, the family was watching a BYU basketball game, and Tyson said that it was time to watch his video. I was a little frustrated because, I mean, it's BYU. The snowboard video could wait. But he put it in anyway, and, behold, there was an ultrasound on the screen! I said, "That's not a snowboard video...." So, that's how they tricked us. Congrats, Tyson and Krystle! They might be finding out whether it's a boy or a girl this week! Can't wait!
Well, even more news. This Thursday Rich and I were with the family at Grandma Farnsworth's 85th birthday party, and there was a slideshow of pictures of her children and all of their families. It came time to show pictures of Scott, Karolyn, and Skyler, and an unltrasound shows up on the slideshow! It took a while for it to sink in, I think, but then everyone in the room started to cheer. I think the only people in on the joke were Rich's Uncle Jeff's family, so it surprised almost everyone in the room. So, another Topeka Nelson is on the way, due in Spetember! (We found out later that the ultrasound was actually of Skyler, but it got the message across just the same.)
Two new nieces and/or nephews coming in the fall! We're so excited!
