Busy Year Ahead!

So we definitely have a busy year ahead of us but we couldn't be happier or more excited! So far I'm not feeling too great but if this pregnancy is anything like the first three, it won't be long and I'll be feeling better. We'll keep you all posted!

Moved but still unpacking...

We are now moved! We are still unpacking and organizing but I'm so glad the actual move is over and we have internet again. I will take some pictures and get them posted as soon as things are a little less messy. Until then here are some pictures of some fun things that we did before we left Rexburg.

EEK... one more week!

We move one week from tomorrow!! I'm so excited! This is a HUGE change for our family, which can be a little scary but we are lucky enough to know that, no matter what, we are not alone. We have a loving Father in Heaven who cares about us and the changes in our lives. We can do anything as long as we have that knowledge and live worthy of His blessings! This has never been more clear to me than at this time in my life. There are so many things that had to happen to make this move and graduate school possible for our family. Things that we had no control over! What a great adventure for our family! Well, I better get back to packing. I just couldn't contain myself so I had to share my feelings with you all! Here are a couple pictures to tide you all over till we get settled. They are from Chris' 30th Birthday Party.

Wow! What a year so far! I can't believe its JULY! Its going too fast but we are trying to enjoy it while we can. Here are some pictures of the last few weeks for you to enjoy (if anyone is still reading our blog). Some of these were taken in WA where the girls and I went to visit my family and some friends. We are all doing well! All the girls are growing so fast! They amaze me with something new each day. I love them and look forward to each day with them. Chris has been on two wildland fires already this summer so we haven't seen much of him but he's home fore now and we are loving it! I hope to post again soon but with my track record I wouldn't hold my breath. Now its time for me to get busy packing for our big move at the end of August!

I know that nobody probably reads this things anymore and I can't say that I blame you. So much has happened since my last post that I want to share with you all and then of course our big news.

Since my last post, Sam turned 4! She's such a great helper and loves learning anything and everything. Caitlyn turned 1 a few weeks ago! She's such a sweet baby and loves playing with her sisters.

We spent Thanksgiving in Washington with my family and had a great time. The girls loved spending time with cousins and still ask when we get to go back. Christmas was wonderful! We spent it at home and enjoyed the quite joy of the season.

The new year brought with it many changes and excitement. Chris spent a few weeks traveling all over the US to interview for grad schools. We are SUPER excited that he's been accepted to Loma Linda University in CA and will start PA school in September. SO with this news comes our preparations for moving. We are more than ready for some warmer weather!

We hope every thing is going well for all of you! I will try to be better at posting more often but no promises.

Something Different... And pictures!!!

I don't usually write about stuff like this so, if you're not interested in reading my frustrations, I'll understand if you stop reading now. Have you ever had a hard time getting over something? Well, that's where I am now and I'm not really sure why. I know that on some level I'm choosing to feel the way that I do but I think I'm ready to let it go... maybe.

Whenever I think about it I remember this quote by Elder Bednar, "When we believe or say we have been offended, we usually mean we feel insulted, mistreated, snubbed, or disrespected. And certainly clumsy, embarrassing, unprincipled, and mean-spirited things do occur in our interactions with other people that would allow us to take offense. However, it ultimately is impossible for another person to offend you or to offend me. Indeed, believing that another person offended us is fundamentally false. To be offended is a choice we make; it is not a condition inflicted or imposed upon us by someone or something else." You can read the rest of his talk HERE.

I'm hoping by writing this and getting it out I can start to let it go. Now on a lighter note... PICTURES!!!

Five months later...

Yikes! I have been horrible with the whole updating thing! I'm not even sure where to start... so I guess the beginning is a good place. It may take me a couple days to get caught up but I am determined to do it.

Since my last post a lot has happened! April was pretty crazy with the start of Chris' last semester of school at BYU-I, me taking classes, Caitlyn's baby blessing, Ashley's 2nd birthday, and Sarah (Chris' little sister) coming to live with us.

We did Caitlyn's baby blessing on the April 10th. We have been so blessed with this sweet little spirit in out family! She is so happy most of the time and eats/sleep wonderfully! Chris' parents and sister Sarah were able to come for the blessing as well as many of our friends from the Fire Department. You can go here to learn about baby blessings.
