Hunting Trips and Ultrasounds

Well, since my husband has moved up his hunting trip to Canada from November to the week of October 20th, I now have to reschedule my ultrasound. I'm hoping for the week before, then I won't have to change my doctors appointment, but with our luck so far, it will probably be the week after. Stupid hunting trip!

Ultrasound Coming Soon Whoohoo!!!!

I had a doctors appointment today, and the ultrasound is finally scheduled for October 20th! I am so excited. I think he tried to put if off longer but I reminded him that he told me 24 weeks at my last appointment:) So, the count down begins!!!

Lindsey tagged me to do this:
The Rules: Tell about 6 quirks of yours - tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same.

1. I have to be clean when I get into bed and so does Tim. It really bugs me even if he just lays on the bed to watch TV before he showers after work and I never touch the bed if I have been to the lake or something without showering. I guess I'm afraid the sheets will smell or something.
2. My childs clothes have to be matching and he has to look "cute" before I will take him anywhere. There was once that he was sick and I just too him out in sweats to get some pedialite and of course I ran into a friend from high school who had never met him - I was sooooo embarrassed. Tim says I will give him a complex, but I just want him to look presentable!
3. This goes along with #2, I WILL NOT go out of my house in yucky clothes and without my makeup on. I used to have to have my hair "done" to go out also, but I have since having Kylan gone out after just combing my hair. However, makeup is a MUST!
4. Even though I hate cleaning the bathroom (who really enjoys that), it has to be scrubbed at least once a week, and the toilet usually 2 or 3 times. I feel like the bathroom is just a breading ground for germs.
5. While I really don't care what my room looks like, any part of my house that people may see when they come over has to be clean or else it drives me absolutely crazy - especially the living room! I can hardly stand it if someone comes over and it's not. This started back in college and has continued, however now with Kylan it seems like people catch me with a dirty living room more often!
6. I hate taking out the garbage. That was always the boys job (the benefits of having only brothers), so my taking out the garbage usually consists of putting all the full bags out in the garage and then Tim takes them out when he goes to work or after work.

I tag: Josh H., Karin S., Mary S., Kelly J., Hailey W.

Prego Pics

I had a request for pregnancy pics, so here they are. Thanks Lindsey for requesting them because it made me realize I hadn't really taken any since I was very newly pregnant, so it made me take a pic. I don't have on a tight shirt, so it's hard to see in the first pic, that's the reason for the second with just my undershirt on. I definitly look pregnant because people now ask me when I'm due at school, so that is nice. I hate the in-between stage where you just look like you've eaten way too much! I'm also getting out of the in-between with clothes which is also nice. These capri's and another pair of shorts are the only non-maternity pants that still fit me. I hate it when nothing seems to fit, so it's nice that maternity clothes are starting to fit better! The baby is moving all the time time now (I've been feeling it for about 2 weeks now) which is fun for now since it doesn't keep me up at night. This one seems to be just as active as it's brother! This baby feels like it's lower though. I have been having muscle soreness at the bottom of my stomach that I don't remember having with Kylan. It seems like my muscles along the side of my stomach and my lower back was where it hurt, but I can't totally remember, so who knows! Next week I have a doctors appointment (it seems like I just had one) and we should be scheduling the ultrasound then! So, that's the baby update!

Happy Birthday Rayanne and Renovation Pics

These are pics of Brett and Teri's latest renovation for Rachel. Everyone else can just scroll passed this part if they want! The three different paint colors are the ones they are picking from for the paint in the back of all of the shelves. The very bottom selves will have doors. It looks really nice! We can't wait to see it done!

Kylan enjoying his corn. This was at Rayanne's bday BBQ. He loves corn and probably ate two ears by himself!

And here is the birthday girl and Braden! I am so lucky to have such a wonderful sister-in-law! Happy Birthday Rayanne! We love you!!!! (this is a little late, her birthday was September 11).

Picture Update

It seems that once school starts things tend to slow down around here. All my brothers are back in Rexburg, which is sad for Kylan (we miss you guys!), but yet we still seem to have stayed fairly busy. We have bottled peaches, we will freeze corn in a couple days. The guys are chopping hay once again and soon will start on the corn. I am back to subbing, which is nice but sad at the same time. We will go to the high school football games this weekend and we have been to soccar games on Saturdays.
Most exciting of all, Bill went through the temple last Thursday. So here are some pics from the last couple of weeks!

Kylan holding Leah. I love how much my little boy loves this sweet little cousin of his!

Braden holding Kylan. I told them I was going to take a picture of them and Kylan sat on Braden's lap. Braden just went with it! I love to watch these two play! Braden came over the other night while his parents went to the adult session of their stake conference and they must have chased each other around the house for the first half hour laughing hysterically!

Braden and Leah. I think Leah's face is hilarious in this photo! Braden is such a good big brother, he is always wanting to know where she is to make sure she is okay. It is so cute!

Everyone at Chili's after going to the temple. We always go to Chilli's after the temple with the Sorensen family and we always get there close to when they close, well this time the guywho sat us made sure to let us know that they were not happy we were there. Luckily our waitress was super nice and even managed to scrape up some salsa, even though the mean guy told us they were out!

Good ol' Bill. We are sure going to miss him!

Back to Work

Reading my friend Josh's latest post I guess "inspired" me to write this one. He is the proud father of a beautiful little girl who he has taken a year off of teaching to stay home with and he's loving the freedom of being at home with her. I think that is awesome!!! I, on the other hand, started back to subbing this week and did two days in a row. The first day I have to say was nice. I had really good classes, a prep period and I got to have adult conversation with other teachers who I hadn't seen all summer. I knew Kylan was having a great time at grandma's house - I could barely get him to give me a kiss goodbye he was so happy to be there - and I was free from his constant demands. However, by yesterday I was really missing him and sick of the teenagers ( I also had some not so fun classes and no prep). Today has been great. Just cleaning the house, reading books to Kylan, watching wonder pets and hanging out. I'm not sure what my point is, but I guess it's that I think it funny that this school year I am looking forward to a few days away from Kylan (and I think he likes it also, while I was missing him yesterday he got to play with Braden all day at grandma's house), last year I hated every single day away from him. I guess it's part of their growing up process. It's fun to see him loving being at his grandparents house (I loved days like that when I was little) and it makes me appreciate my time with him even more!
Kylan also had a little experience with wet cement yesterday. I'll have to have Rayanne send me the pics, they are pretty funny especially since he didn't really get upset about it. He tried to get to dad across some wet cement and ended up falling in face first, except he managed to keep his face out of it. In a way I wish I was there, but it's even funnier since I didn't have to clean him up! When I got to grandma's he and Braden were both in the bath (they always have to do what the other one is doing). Too bad they couldn't have left his imprint in the cement!
