I don'ts...

Lately, it's been a lot of 'I don'ts..."

"I don't have this, I don't have that."

I am going to try and focus on the "I do's"

I have such a full and rich life. I wish that I could just always remember it's the 'little things' that make me truly happy. Sometimes when I write it out, it makes me remember the things that I do have and all the many blessings that I enjoy each day.

My beautiful family.
My wonderful husband who would do anything for us.
My amazing little son that I get to watch grow each day.
My little baby boy inside of me that is growing so perfectly.

My freedom.
This beautiful country.
The people that surround me each day.

My friends.
My health.

The Gospel.
The Atonement.
The Savior.
Heavenly Father.

All of these things, these non worldly things that make me who I am.

The things I can take with me.

My new focus.

This list goes and and continues to grow each day.

This probably should have been posted in November, seeing as how these are the things I am most grateful for.
It's never too late to be grateful.

Halloween Events and Pictures

Hocus Pocus

Ingrid and I had the pleasure of attending the annual festival of Witches. In other words, we went to 'Witches Night Out' at Gardner's Village. It was sooooo much fun! We are going to start making it a tradtion to go there every year. It was fun to just dance, eat, laugh and take pictures with all the creepers around! It was perfect weather and there were some crazy, cool costumes. I want to go ALL out next year, now that I know what I'm up against! :)

She is a real witch.
One of the coolest costumes.

These are just a few of our pictures. As you can tell it was fun, and the company was great! :)

Behold...The Bump!

I am 17 weeks, and just starting to pop out. I won't say that I'm starting to show though, because my tummy seems to change everyday...some days it's flat, some days it's fat...and other days...well you know. So, even though I have this picture of a bump doesn't mean I will have it tomorrow. This picture is also of a full bladder, so that makes my tummy look even bigger.
Can't wait til I get out of the "fat/self-conscious stage" and into the "okay, you can tell she's pregnant stage."
I started showing at about 20+ weeks with Kai, so far this pregnancy has been completely opposite, so we won't compare. Alright, updated. Signing out.

Snakes & Snails and Puppy Dog Tails...

That is what little BoYs are made of! We are having another little BOY! We found out the gender a little early. I was so anxious to find out! He was not shy to let it all show. We immediately knew what 'it' was. I am so excited to have another little boy, I am going to be one busy mom if he's anything like my sweet little Malakai! I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to raise the Lord's children. I am just so excited to be expanding our cute, little family. This is what life is about. Just thought I would share my good news! :) Can't wait for March!

My cute little niece was born on Sunday, October 3rd. She is as beautiful as can be, looks just like her mom. I'm so excited to have a baby girl in the family. It's been too long since we've had one. I love having cute nieces and nephews nearby. It is so fun to watch them all grow up and change. I'm excited to watch Lisa and Garett be parents, I know they will be the best parents! Congratulations guys! You couldn't be more blessed! :) Love you!
I stole this picture from Garett.

I'm baaaaack. (said in the voice of the creepy little girl on poltergiest)

Alright, no more messing around. I'm taking this blogging thing serious...for now. I don't know why it's so hard to blog. There are multiple things including absence of time, laziness, tiredness, don't want to, etc. Right now, I'm here to stay, hopefully my motivation will stay strong and I will be a committed blogger. Instead of getting overwhelmed and trying to update you on everything that has happened as of late...I am going to start fresh, from this point I will tell you everything of importance that has happened in my life, everything I have on my mind that is appropriate for blog readers, and everything my cute child and my cute future child are up to. :) Enjoy, and look forward to my next post...dun dun dun:)

Until we meet again.
