Turkey Bowl 2014!!

I so meant to put these up forever ago! These photos are from the Turkey Bowl on Thanksgiving day of 2014. All photos are courtesy of my beautiful mother who is amazing with her camera! I'm super jealous. I need to have mine out more often! The pics you see here are almost all from my phone. 

Anyway, the Turkey Bowl this year was over at the hospital park and was mostly our ward. Woohoo! Go 5th ward! However, it seems that a lot of people brought their cousins or in laws or entire family (Thank you Cheneys), so it was kind of a mix of lots of people. Lucky for us, we knew most of them. It was really fun!

So here are some pics that I pulled from the almost 1,000 that were taken. Since it was my mother taking pics, the best ones are of my family, but she got some good ones of other people too! So here ya go!

My little nephew, the best cheerleader there!!

I'm pretty sure he ALMOST caught the ball but didn't quite. haha. Bummer!

I love Matt's face in this pic. haha

This one too. ha

There was a little bit of rear end grabbing while going for the flags. haha

Here's that awesomely gorgeous sister of mine again. :)

How could you not love that little boy?!

John is going for Justin!

And he might get him ... !!

Caught the ball!!

I'm pretty sure this is how I always felt when going for flags. So close but not quite. haha

Jon gets the flag in this pic.... 

And then dad gets a butt squeeze by three others going for the ball in this one.. haha. love it. 

The beautiful photographer!!!!

My fav pic from the whole day. Justin and Danny = Best friends!

Sorry for so few words here.. I wasn't quite sure how to describe all of them. Oh well. Hope you enjoyed anyway!

Next Step

I've been avoiding this post for a while now. In fact, a long time... I've been thinking about it since I wrote the post about our little grey circles that didn't make it. I like writing but the last few weeks have been kinda blah. I also think I've been a little hesitant because I've always wanted these posts to be super happy and chipper but that's not exactly how I feel. After the last post I did get a lot of really nice feedback, one in particular that made me feel extra good. My aunt is an incredible person and I love talking to her. She said to me that no matter how long those grey circles were my babies, they still were and I was allowed to grieve as much as I wanted. I think that kind of gave me permission to really cry and it made me feel a lot better. Thanks Kim. :) 

But now we're on to bigger and better things. I can't lie and say that I'm super excited about this transfer. I think I got WAY too excited for the last one/first one and it ma…

All we know is...

The results are in folks...

YES! We're pregnant!!!
There are simply not words to describe how I feel about this statement. One I've been wanting to make for what seems like forever. One I've heard from so many of my friends and family that made me want to cry. One that seemed impossible to make. And one I am finally able to say for myself. I can't even believe it.
We waited 2 LONG weeks to find out whether or not our little frozen circle would become our miracle. And when I say long, I mean long. Especially when I was supposed to start my period on Friday. Last Friday. So usually when you're trying to get pregnant, you wait till the day your period is supposed to start and you wait... If it doesn't come, you run to the store and buy that expensive little stick and awkwardly try to pee on it. (Maybe they aren't really expensive, but it kinda seems that way, right ladies??) 
Anyway, then you wait a few minutes and see what it says. I had one left over from the la…

Evening in Excellence - Keepers of His Light

A couple weeks ago we had our Evening in Excellence for the Young Women and it turned out so great! A couple girls decided they wanted to use this event as a Value Project for their personal progress so it was up to them to plan end execute the whole thing. I was a little nervous letting that all out of my control since I'm rather a control freak but I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out.

The girls decided on the theme of "Keepers of His Light" and all the decor was fall themed since we did it in October. Here are some pics!

These were the cute invitations we made. Aren't they awesome! We got the paper at Michael's and use the twine thread to tie a bow. :)

Isn't this great paper??

This is Rachel! She is one of the young women that wanted to help. She and Amber basically did everything!

This is beginning of the leaf lanterns that we made. The final product is further down the page... 

Rachel got a little hostile... ;)

This is Amber!! She amaz…
