Here We Are

Well, I finally uploaded some pictures that were taken a while ago. I forgot where I put the cord for the camera to upload all my pictures. That's what happens when you're pregnant and moving at the same time. I don't have any yet of the new place but hopefully I can take a few today. I still have a few things that I want to get to decorate the rest of the living room, Afton's room, and our room. Our room has become the storage space for all the leftover boxes and we are getting a dresser soon, so I won't take pictures of that area but you can imagine.

We woke up today and saw snow all over. Well, all over the car. It doesn't look like it'll stick but it's still fun. I am now 34 weeks and counting. I have good days and bad days. Reesa is constantly moving trying to poke her way out of my belly it seems. Afton loves to pat my belly and give kisses to her lil' sister. We can't wait to see her!

We got to watch Conference at our house this year. We did go to the Taylor chapel for the Sunday morning session, which wasn't too bad with Afton, but the afternoon session cuts into nap time so we stayed home for that one. We felt uplifted and strengthened by such strong talks and the Spirit. Tad was saying that a lot of the talks felt like Priesthood session talks. That just makes me think how much we must need to be working on. We need to hold stronger to the iron rod and remember why we are here. I was also thinking about President Monson's talk about his birthday gifts. I wish I would have participated, but I think the point is not to just do service for that one day, but to do it always. I know this is something that I have been needing to work on lately, especially with Tad. Some days I just think so much about myself. (Actually that happens a lot these days.) I know that service changes people, because it has changed me, but it's hard for me to always remember that.

So, not much more has been going on with us. We visit with Katie and Dallin and their newest addition, Garrison. He's a cutie! It's hard to remember that they are that small. Tad is a trooper working very hard all the time. Afton is getting bigger and bigger every day. She now addresses me as "Mommy." The other day we were walking to go get the mail and she walking around saying, "Mommy? Mommy?" "Yes, Afton?" "Hi, Mommy." Usually after she says mommy she just runs around saying "mommy said, mommy said." I'm not sure what I've said but apparently she remembers me saying something. She loves wearing her winter boots and coat. So of course I have pictures.

This was before we moved. She came out of her room with three pairs of shorts/pants on. She's talented!

OH I am soooo excited for you! You know reading your post about service reminded me that I felt the same way... but talking to Aaron made me feel better because we do service everyday by watching our babies and our husbands! Your such a great person, and I'm happy that we were VT companions so we could get to know each other better!
