So earlier this year, lulu got sick. But she got better. Well sometime in late June early August lulu was acting funny. After Dave and I moved to our own home in May, lulu would follow (RUN) us to our house everytime she saw us. Well we have always suspected that she had hip problems, well then she coudn't walk, she would follow us home and wouldnt be able to walk back let alone move. We would have to take her back to my parents house, then she stopped following us, barking, and stopped eating! We tried everything from buying different food, forcing water down her throat with a turkey baster, along with pedialite, and giving her adult asprin, it got so bad she couldnt even move to potty. She would be laying in her pee. She looked horrible! It was so awful!!! I have never had an animal i loved so much, and to see her go through this, it was just heart wrenching! So after a couple of weeks of hoping she would get better. Dave and i finally took her to the vet on pioneer day. The vet told us she had severe arthritis in her back knees and hips. He said the condition was so bad, that it couldnt be fixed, he said pain pills would be the only option, and that since the aspirin hadnt really been working, he wasnt to hopeful, along with the fact that she was at least 14 years old. so I had to make the decision on what to do. It was SO HARD, but i couldn't bare to see her in so much pain, she wasn't happy, how could she be when she couldn't even be a dog, she just sat there. I had to have her put down, they did it that day, and i had to say goodbye to the best dog i have ever had. I just broke down crying at the fact that we had to say good bye! Dave was emotional as well. They told me i shouldn't watch, but i didn't want to leave her alone! I said good bye and immediatly regreted being in that room, I left quickly and went outside, and cried my eyes out. Dave stayed in there with her till it was done. I havent cried so much in my life! I felt awful, like i was a bad person, that i was the executioner! I know that seems silly, but i still can't help it! I miss her so much, and cry still about it, and i dont know how i can ever get another dog, cuz i don't ever want to do this again. I feel bad for anyone who has to do this. I just feel better by remembering that she is no longer in pain. R.I.P LULU!!!!

From Summer to Fall

So we had a wonderful time with Dave sisters. It was so fun to be with family. I am no longer in young womans, My new calling in church, is the ward website leader and im in charge of the ward Newsletter. I am just trying to get use to it all. Dave and I are both still working. My sister and her family recently moved back here to MO. We have been spending alot of time with them and my parents, since they live with them. We are looking forward to the holidays, This is our favorite time of the year. We love decorating for Christmas! We just love everything about it, from apple cider to Christmas music. Things are going great and just enjoying life.

It's been awhile....

So It has been a long time since i have updated... Like 5 months or so. SORRY! So Dave and I now live in our own home. We rent for a very good price a month. It's a 3 bedroom and 2 bath. WE LOVE IT! AND the best part is my parents are my neighbors! we live like a half a mile away! Its awesome! We have been doing a lot to the inside and out to make it our own. We enjoy it. We are very settled in. Some more great news is that Dave got on full-time at work!!!! This i am very excited for. We have been waiting for this for almost 2 years! We will have insurance in the middle of October. Then we are going to try and have a baby then, hopefully by the end of the year i will be pregnant. (That is the best scenario.) WE CAN'T WAIT TO BE PARENTS!!! Dave and I will be married for 4 years this october 14th. We can't believe how time flies! I still am working as a waitress at pizza hut. Things coming up is that Two of Dave's sisters are coming out to visit next week! We are excited to see them. I just went to girls camp as a leader, it was fun... BUT it rained almost the entire time. aNyWoO.... That is all that is new with us!

New HairDo

Here is my new hair cut! I have been wanting to "trim" my hair for a while now, and Dave said that he wanted my hair shorter, and being husband pleaser, i did it! I really like it. It is starting to grow on me. I havent had my hair cut this short since 6th grade. And I was really regreting right after I saw all my hair on the floor. But Dave loves it, so thats all that matters. It is a new me.

My new Kitchen

So My mom found some cabinets for a really good price on criagslist, and we got them. SO then we bought a countertop, sink, and faucet, and My dad, Dave and Rich Baker (a family friend) put it all together. It is so nice to have a sink! We can do dishes downstairs now, We love it and are thrilled to have it all.
