It's A Boy!

Well, I had my 14 week appointment yesterday and we found out that it's a boy! We are both so excited! Brian is especially excited to have a little buddy to watch basketball with.  Things are getting better for me. My morning sickness is starting to die down (thank heavens!) and I am starting to get more of my energy back. Things are going good. We couldn't be happier! 

Monday, December 1, 2008

Well, I guess I should announce it to the world! I am pregnant! I am due June 21! Brian and I are so excited. It has been hard- I have had morning sickness, but it has been getting better!

Draper Temple

I figure I should post something new... so here we go.

Last week Brian and I were visiting my parents in Sandy and decided to check out the Draper Temple. It was so pretty! I really want to go to the Open House. I wish I could just explore inside! 
Here are a few pics.

Heber Creeper

This weekend, Brian and I went on the old Heber Creeper. It was on a trip called "The Haunted Canyon." We went with Brian's family and it was a lot of fun. You ride up the canyon on the train and you are told ghost stories, and you can see scenes outside the train. Then on the way back down, "ghosts" from the stories were on the train to scare you. My favorite part was just being on a cool old train. Here are some pictures. I was a little disappointed that I couldn't get better pictures because it was so dark.

This weekend we went camping near Mirror Lake. It is so pretty up there. I love the mountains! It was pretty, but it sure was cold! Luckily we had a little heater that we could put in the tent. The lake was so fun. We had a little mishap there. Brian and I were out in the raft and Jack decided to swim out to us. He got in the raft and was enjoying himself until some guy cast his fishing lure about five feet away from the raft. Jack saw the little bubble on the line and thought, "ball!" He jumped out of the raft (soaking me) and went after the line. As you would know it, he got hooked. It hooked to him on the piece of skin between the hind leg and stomach. We had to push it through his skin to cut off the barb. Luckily, he wasn't hurt. In fact, he was oblivious to the fact that he had a hook in him! The guy who did it didn't even care! Brian was not happy! There were a few words said..... but I won't focus on that. 

All in all, it was a fun trip! Here are a few pictures....

One Year Anniversary!

Saturday, August 9, was our first anniversary! The year seemed to just fly by! It has been such a wonderful time and I am so grateful to have Brian in my life! He is my best friend and I love him so much!
Being in that newlywed way (poor) we decided to go down to Temple Square and have fun. We went and ate at the Lion House and just enjoyed being on the temple grounds.
I love the Salt Lake Temple so much. I just love the flowers. 
It was so much fun seeing all the brides and grooms and thinking about us the year before! 
This year has been great and I look forward to all the anniversaries we will have in the future! 
So here are some picture from then and now....

This past weekend, Brian and I went up to my parents cabin and had a blast! I love it up there and didn't want to come home! 

I was so lucky to get this sweet shot of a butterfly!

Good Times In The Summer

I am loving Primary! It has been really fun so far! We had the kids sing those cute songs about Dads on Father's Day and it was the cutest thing ever! The kids are so willing to answer questions, share stories and pretty much comment on everything. I wish that the 13 year olds I taught in Sunday School would have been as cooperative. 

I get to do my first sharing time in a couple of weeks and I am both excited and nervous, but I know it will all go well.... with the help of the fabulous websites recommended to me!

New Calling

So I got myself a new calling...
I am now the first counselor in the Primary Presidency in my ward and wondering if anyone had any advice or good primary ideas for sharing time or activities. I am totally new at this, so I am a little nervous, but also excited. It will be really fun to work with all the cute little kids!

So it is finally Spring! I am so excited to be outside and to garden! Here are some of my first flowers of the season- gorgeous Gerber Daisies!

Wedding Photos

Here are a few wedding pictures for those who haven't seen them!

Bees Game

So here we are at the Bees Game a few weeks ago. I got free tickets thru work and thought it would be a fun idea. Didn't really work out that way.... we parked at the Lowe's down the street and when we came back to the car- it had been towed! I was so dang mad! I am embarrassed to say that a few words flew out of my mouth that shouldn't have! We ended up having to walk like 8 blocks to the tow place and it cost us $244! So the free game wasn't so free!

Jack on our fall hike up near Snowbasin. It was a ton of fun. We hiked forever to get to a pond, that we never found! So we finally turned around after a mile or two!

After running through the sprinklers.... he loves water!
