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.

Congratulations on the new baby! I'm so happy for you! I'm sorry for the sickness you've been going through.

I'm absolutely amazed at all you have accomplished - gee whiz! Cub Scout camp, a walkathon, and having to plan girls' camp on such short notice? I sooo would have lost my marbles, haha! And then moving into a new home right when you got back from camp? And pulling off an entire wedding? Wow, I think you must be Super Woman or something! ;)

I'm very happy for you with your new house and car! So exciting!

Wow! Luckily, you didn’t have to endure long and stressful months of house searching! How were you able to locate your new house that fast? You have so many blessings to be thankful for: a new house, new car and a new baby! What else can you ask for? Congrats!
