So Thankful

I have to say that i'm one who usually thinks more about thanksgiving dinner than I do the true meaning of the holiday, which is being thankful. This year I have to say that I have never been more thankful for what I have in my life and the blessings I have recieved this year. FIRST, I am pregnant. I couldn't be happier for this blessing, especially after how the year started with a miscarriage. I can't wait to meet our little girl, and pray several times a day thanking heavenly father for her, and that she may be well, growing inside of me. SECOND, I have the BEST husband in the world. He has been amazing through everything we go through together. He is there for me when I need him most, especially these days. He has picked up the slack, and I can't say enough how much I love and appreciate him. I would be broken without him. He is amazing. THIRD, of couse is the Gospel. I have to say that I was forced to grow spirtually this year with trials and a new calling. I love that my testimony has grown so much. I have so much faith in the Lord and his plan for Dave and I, and I just want to serve him and be a loving daughter of God. FOURTH, is my family. I love them, even though we do not always agree. My mom and dad especially have been supportive to me in my times of need. I am grateful to have them and other family so close. I obviously have so much more i'm thankful for but, I don't have any desire to write everything down, I would be on here till my fingers fell off from typing to much. Anyways the moral is I'm so very THANKFUL for all I have.

18 weeks with a SURPRISE!!



Yup.... We are having a girl. We went in for our first ultrasound yesterday, and that was the news we got. We are shocked! We thought for sure we were having a boy, and we had everybody else convinced as well, except for the ultrasound technician. Dave was like are you sure it's a girl, how accurate are these things?! lol she was like i'm pretty sure. Dave and I were sort of disappointed just because we just wern't expecting it. I got over it qiuckly, it took Dave about 24 hours to come around. As soon as that little girl is born, he will be wrapped around her little fingers. Anywho, our girl was being a little stubborn and didn't want to give the woman good shots of her face and heart so we have to go back in a month, but everything looks good, her heartbeat is normal, and her other organs look great. During the the appointment our girl was moving her arm a ton, as if waving. :) Now we just have to change everything we were planning to buy since we are now having a girl!
