New House, New Car, New Baby!

Okay, I have a lot to blog about and I miss reading other's blogs!

Here is a list of why I have been away so long.

1. In June we started looking for a house to buy. We found one in 3 weeks. I couldn't believe it!

2. We had a great 4th of July. I plan on blogging about it.

Here is Ayla with her hand over her heart while the flag, in the 4th of July parade, goes by, so cute!

3. I went to Scout camp with my Cub Scouts.

4. I walked in the CureSearch walkathon. CureSearch is a program to find a cure for children's cancer.

I walked for my friend's little girl, Lizzy. She is the one in the front row with the pink shirt and the pink flower headband.

5. I was camp director and due to the bad weather we had last winter, our camp site was flooded, so Stake girls camp was canceled, 2 and a half weeks before camp. We had to start from scratch. We even had to find a camp site.

We pulled it off though.
We had a great time! A special thanks to all the Leader's and Youth Leader's who made it possible!

6. We moved into our house the weekend that I got back from girls camp.

Here is the front part of our new home.

Here is a better view.
I love the yard!

I will give you a tour on another post.

7. We went to Lagoon, mid July. I will do a post on this later.

8. We bought a new car at he end of July. The car of my dreams....

a white Toyota Camry!!!!
I think I was more excited about the car than the house.

9. In the mist of all this, me and my sister had to do her wedding and I mean everything for the wedding. I have quite a few posts for this. We did pull it off though on August 27th. It was beautiful!

10. And last but not least.....

I am pregnant!
This was taken last week at 16 weeks.

I tell you what, we could not be more happy because we tried for over a year to get pregnant. I don't want to be a complainer but I forgot how hard pregnancy is for me. I am pretty much sick the entire time. This is the main reason I have been away from the blog. I spend most of my time in bed and you would think I would have a ton of time for blogging but I just don't feel good. It is like having the flu for 9 months. I am so sensitive to so many things, of course smells, temperatures, light, reading, yes reading makes me nauseous and these are just a few.

We found out we were pregnant on the 6th of July. I actually had scheduled an appointment 3 months in advance with the doctor to talk about fertility. Two days before the appointment I started suspecting we were pregnant. The doctor and I had a good laugh!

There you have it! I will try and blog a little bit more now but I don't know how I will be feeling. I do feel a little bit better though but I still have hard days.

Ayla playing at the park.

I know I haven't posted anything in a long time. I have so much to catch up on. I have missed blogging. Lots to come!!!

Anyway, my husband, Kurt has been filming and editing a lot. I had to share the cute video he did of Ayla tonight. I just love it!
