Hello! Long time no post! :) Well, since the last time I posted a lot has been going on! I will just highlight a few more for my sake so feel free to skim. :)
~My little brother went on his mission for the LDS church to Winnipeg Canada so we drove to Idaho for a quick trip to see him speak in church. He is awesome (don't ever tell him I said that) he really has been an inspiration for me for a long time now and I am really proud of him. Unfortunately I didn't take ANY pictures! WHAT! I know I don't know what I was thinking, obviously I wasn't.
~Easter was great, Morgan and Whit loved looking for eggs. We had a great dinner at our friends house..mmm
~When Jeff got home he was here for four days then we ALL took off to Washington for about six weeks. The first week and a half we were there we stayed with my cute sister in law at her house. Bless her heart, she was already housing her brother in law and then we show up PLUS her family AND she is staging her house to get it sold! She is a saint. After that time we went to my grandparents home on Whidby Island. Their house isn't to far from Shelly's but you have to cross part of the Puget Sound to get there on the ferry which the girls loved, but it takes about 45 minutes to an hour extra to get there. SO Jeff stayed at his sisters house during the week and came over on the weekends (from his office it is about two hours). SO when he was there we had a great time! Farmers markets, touring the island, eating good food. But when he wasn't there it was a little lonely. Then the last week we headed back to my SIL's house (my grandparents rent their home out and it happened to be rented that week) and after that I decided to drive to Idaho to spend some time with my parents.
This is a picture I remember from when I was little, I THINK my grandma put it all together it is sea shells and things from the beach. It was the only thing left at my grandparents house of theirs.
~We drove from Seattle to Rexburg (14 hours) and the girls were great. We celebrated the 4th with my parents and my brother and his wife and their kids. We went to the Rexburg parade and had a BBQ with lots of friends and family. It was great, but I was pooped! SO Sunday morning we headed off to Denver...(12 hours) and Morgan was great...Whitney, not so much. It was a long drive and I wanted to cry when I got home! :)
~NOW, we are officially moving to Washington for who knows how long! :) It could be anywhere from 4 months to a year, who knows! So for the last two weeks I have been packing, blah. All I have to say is I have amazing friends and family who keep calling asking what they can do...everyday, I am not kidding. They (you) are GREAT!!! I want to cry every time someone calls (I am pregnant and super hormonal :) ) We are VERY VERY VERY sad to leave but excited for the new adventure at the same time!
~OH! We are still pregnant :) I am 33 weeks and we are having a GIRL!!! Surprise! :) Ok, I wasn't to surprised. We actually went to our ultrasound and they were not able to tell. The tech said if she HAD to say one or the other she was say MAYBE 60% a girl. I was a little disappointed that they weren't able to say for sure, and JEFF was so funny, he was just pacing the floor the whole time. He finally after a few weeks got me to go to a fetal photo type place and find out for sure. SO, it IS a girl. I am really excited but really nervous at the same time. Three girls! DRAMA! haha I don't know how I will handle it! My pregnancy has gone great (beside the first 23 weeks of throwing up and nausea!) I really am grateful, but I am STRESSED with everything going on, I am excited to get settled and really get ready for this baby girl!
~One more shout out to my husband who is still in Washington poor guys has only been home for four days since May! :( He is doing so well up there AND because of all of this craziness he was not able to walk for his Masters degree. I think (ok I know) I was more upset about this than he was. He worked so hard and then didn't get to get the pictures and the memories of walking. :( I may rent him an outfit just so I can take pictures! Or maybe I will convince him to get his doctorates! haha I think he will have to convince me before I convince him. BUT again, good work hun I am so proud!
These are just some random pictures:
Sorry for any misprints, it is late and I am tired. It has been a little crazy the last few months, but fun times. Hopefully I keep up a little better from here on out...we will see. :)
