pregnancy is going great and i've only got FIVE weeks left.. how cool is that!
we found a place to live in logan, i've got a great new doctor and we are moving out of provo next Friday...only bad thing is that we cant move into our new place til like january 5th... hope this little girl doesnt decide to come early and hope our parents are ready for a few intruders for the next few weeks.
my sister just got back from Mexico (i'm a little jealous) and i have been waiting all day to talk to her. she just called!! its harder than you would think to go a whole week with out talking to the one person ( besides your husband) that you talk to everyday.
i love this time of year... dont you?! theres so much to be thankful for even if life seems hectic, crazy and out of control sometimes... it could always be worse. Christmas is only 14 days away..hope your Christmas shopping is going better than mine.
well..thats just a little update..hopefully i can post soon with some pictures (i've been bad at that lately).

I've got bittersweet feelings about the whole move.
On one hand i am so sad to be leaving because we have great friends, a great ward, i love my job, i hate moving (especially when i will be eight months pregnant), and because now i will have to find a new doctor and hope that everything transfers with my insurance and all that fun stuff.
However, on the other hand, i am excited for a change..change is good, excited to live closer to home and especially closer to my sisters, excited for cheaper rent because Provo is a total rip off, and excited to make new friends.
Anyways... its a blessing to know that everything happens for a reason and we are going to make the best of this sudden change in our lives.. lets face it.. there will be lots of changes happening in the next little while.
If anyone knows of any nice places to live in Logan that wont break the bank please let us know.
Speaking of moving however... our little lady sure knows how to thrown and elbow jab and do some mad sombersalts.. especially when i lay down for bed at night.. how convienent. i just happened to notice that the countdown is under 60 days..can you believe it!
Well. hope everyone has a great day! BYE

That night we had family pictures taken in Oakley, Id. They turned out so so good. We stopped at my grandmas on our way out to pictures and to watch the Saturday afternoon session of conference. This is one of the many snapshots of all my sisters. syd, rach, meag, kell and me... Sure do love these girls!!
and who could forget my dad. I just love this guy. he keeps us laughing ALL the time. Don't let this picture fool you..he is one of the happiest people i know....he just likes to put on a front to show his tough side. I dont know how i got so lucky to have such great parents. Love you dad.
Our photographer found out that i was pregnant and kept wanting to take pictures displaying my belly. The thing is that i still dont really look pregnant..i just look like i've gained 10 pounds. Anyways, she made trae wrap his arms around me and make a heart on my stomach for a few pictures so we had fun making fun of this silly pose. (just imagine that my triangle looks like a heart)

It has been an adventurous few weeks. After visiting Argentina, Brasil, and a quick stop in Paraguay we are finally home. We had so much fun and crammed so much stuff into our 2 1/2 week vacation. We started our trip off in Argentina, went to the temple there, and visited some people from Drew's (trae's younger brother) mission. It's official that Argentina has the worlds best Ice Cream ever. We didnt stay there very long but had a great time, met some amazing people and saw so many cool things. Then we headed to Brasil where we spent the rest of the trip. We went to Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Cuiaba, Recife, Olinda, Porto De Galinhas, Iguacu Falls, Rio de Janeiro, and the Pantanal. I still can not believe all of the things we saw and did in that amount of time. My favorite place was definatley Iguacu Falls. It was absolutely amazing!!!! I got sick with a killer bladder infection that turned into a kidney infection so i had a few miserable days and had to miss out on a couple of things but i went to the doctor, got an antibiotic and started feeling much better. We went out to dinner with Trae's mission president, met some people he baptized, went to dinner with Dee's (Trae's dad) mission presidents family from 25 years ago, met some people he baptized, went to a few beaches, swam in a coral reef in the Atlantic Ocean, almost got attacked by an alligator, saw the Christus Statue, did alot of shopping, and went to two temples there. We really did have an amazing time, but it sure feels good to be HOME!

My dad had his last chemo appointment on Thursday...YEAH!!! He is such a rock star!!! My parents are both so amazing and i think they are just the cutest thing ever.
Here we are at the temple. Meag, Chels, and i are just a few months apart and have been so close since we were little...now were all grown up and married! After the wedding i came home to Burley and spent some time with Trae's family. Drew brought home his new girlfriend Mary. She is the sweetest girl and so much fun!!
and this is the crazy hail/rain storm that greeted us on Monday. I have never seen such outrageous rain or hail in my life. Within minutes thier driveway was covered. WHERE ARE YOU SUMMER???

What i love about you....
1. You love our Dad and are so positive and supportive of him with the things he is going through right now. I'm sure there are days when you want to through in the towel, but you never show it and make sure he is taken care of all the time.
2. I can still call and talk to you every single day, (and I do). I know sometimes my call are pointless but i'm so glad we have a relationship that i can call and talk to you about anything.
3. You are my greatest example of service. You have shown me how to serve others so willingly by your example.
4. You love the Gospel and make sure your children know it. I love how you share your testimony often and let us know how important the Gospel is to you.
5. You raised three kids under the age of 1... (i don't know how you did it but i think we turned out alright)...and then three more after that. I only hope i can be as good as a mother and nurturer as you are.
6. You make me laugh.
7. You make me cry.
8. You said you won't come and visit me when i have a home if it's dirty. (I'm sure glad you dont see my house everyday) but i love how tidy you are and am so thankful for your example of cleanliness.
9. You have always been my best cheerleader and supporter. Even if you didnt always know what you were talking about, i loved that you were so involved and hardly ever missed a game or meet.
10. You are so strong and positive through your trials and help everyone else get through theirs. I've never seen some with so much gratitude for the things they experience but you help me know that whatever it is that i face, it could always be worse and i still have blessings to count.
all six of us kids home with our mom on Mothers Day.
We love you Mom!!!
