God's Prophet and two of his Apostles share wonderful Christmas messages with the world. They are filled with the spirit and the true meaning of Christmas. Watch them at lds.org, under First Presidency Christmas Devotional. Enjoy!
Lauren is 18 months old now, I can't belive how fast time flies. She is saying a lot more words now like: car, star, clap, baby, bubbles, dog, duck, and more. She also loves saying her animal noises like: woof, quack, bauck(chicken), and rarrr. She is so much fun! I am 22 weeks now and this pregnancy has been really great, I haven't gotten sick once! Ashley will be switching Universities this semester to ASU, aeronautical program. We will be moving next week into ASU- Polytechnic housing. We are really looking forward to being closer to family. *Lauren is such a trooper and finds ways to entertain herself while I pack. *
I had a doctor appointment on monday to have an ultrasound to see what my due date is, and to our surprise we found out what we are having. ITS A BOY!!!!! Lauren sat on the bed with me and patted my belly and looked at the screen, then she snuggled with me, it was really sweet. I think she is excited to have a baby brother :) I am due April 3rd.
Tonight for Family Home Evening we carved our family pumpkin. I thought Lauren would love getting dirty and sticky, but she didn't even want to touch it :) But she loves looking at pumpkins and points to them every time we are in a store.
This weekend was General Conference, where the Prophet, his apostles and other leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints talk to the world. This happens twice a year, it was great to hear these inspired men and women speak. If you missed some or want to watch it again just go to www.lds.org
This weekend we also had a surprise party for my mom's 50th birthday. It was so fun to hang out with other women and eat delicious food! Happy Birthday Mom.!
Nephi left last week to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He will be serving in the Cebu, Philippines mission, and will be learning Cebuano. I am so proud of Nephi, it was hard to see him go, but he will have a great experience and will be blessed for serving the lord.
We are living in Prescott, Arizona now and we love it! We are only a few hours away from family and we have a great Condo. Ashley is working for the school right now doing landscaping and starts school in a few weeks. Lauren is running all over the place and loves reading her books! She brings us so much happiness. We recently found out that I am expecting! I'm not sure when I am due, but Lauren and the new baby will be around 2 years apart. I will post pictures soon, right now its not working, but hopefully within a week. Life is good :)
We are moving back home to ARIZONA! We enjoyed our time here in Wisconsin- but we both feel like home is back in AZ. Ashley will be attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott. We will spend the next week or two traveling :) We are stopping in Nauvoo and camping there with Levi and Karla. Then we head to Missouri to see Ben and Brittany. Ryan is brave enough to travel with us- hopefully Lauren does OK this time :)
