Great news!!

Nate and I are VERY excited to announce that we are going to have a baby! YEAH!! I am due August 28th. I am 13 weeks right now and just starting to get over the morning sickness (who ever named it "morning" sickness sure didn't go through the same thing that I went through!! It should be called "all day" sickness or "I want to lay around and do nothing" sickness or "food is really nasty" sickness or some thing like that). Food is starting to sound good again and I can go 2 hours with out eating some days. It's great. I unfortunately don't have a cute little ultra sound picture to post but just look at that little baby floating in the box to the left of this post and you get a pretty good idea of what it looks like (I can't wait until I don't have to call the baby "it" any more!). Any how, we are very excited and feel very blessed to have a baby on the way!!

Life is Beautiful!!

I remember my Freshman year of college when I had finally made the decision to go to Utah State, I had to make my next big decision, where to live. It was a hard choice for me because I was going up all by myself and didn't really know where to start. So I narrowed it down to my top two choices and knew where I for sure didn't want to go. Well, of course it turned out that I went to that place where I knew I didn't want to go. Well, it turned out to be one of the best things that could have happened to me. I felt Heavenly Fathers hand guiding me for sure! I was blessed to live that first year with some of the best roommates that I ever had in my many years of college and moving about. I keep in touch with most of them still today. 5 out of the 6 of us were able to get together for brunch last week and it was really great! (The other one lives in Japan so she couldn't make it:) It was just so fun to see them all and be together again. It has caused me to reflect a lot about my life. I can totally see my Heavenly Father's hand guiding me in so many ways! I am SO very thankful that he has blessed me with the things that I NEED and not just the things that I WANT. I think I would have messed my life up pretty bad by now if it would not have been for His loving guidance in my life. I surely would not have been patient enough to wait for the wonderful husband that I have now. He is one of the biggest blessings that I have. I just feel so grateful for the experiences that life offers us and for a loving Heavenly Father who is just waiting to bless us if we will but come to him and trust him! Life is beautiful!

Me, Shannon, Ruth, Leah and Ashlee!
