I'm going behind bars

Recently I have been nominated to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). They are coming to arrest me, and the money I raise will be my bail money. I need to raise about $1,300. A lot of money but if I could get a small donation from a lot of people then I know it can be done. The money will go to helping local kids attend camp, help MDA continue research for causes and cures of 43 neuromuscular diseases, provide wheelchairs and leg braces, fund clinic visits, and run support group sessions. As you can see it's for a good cause, and I am excited to help.
If you would like to help me post my "bail" please go to this website

Thanks and I love you all!

Catching Up

I haven't posted anything lately because it has been kind of crazy around here. Nothing too exciting has been going on, Just busy. The most exciting thing that just happened today is that Kelly (Caleb's little brother) left for his mission to Brazil. He flew out today. We are so excited for him. He was so ready! We know that he will be a great missionary.
Some other news... I decided to quit my job at Sylvan. I wasn't getting the hours I needed. I am still not quite sure what I am going to do yet. I am thinking of either substitute teaching (not a fun job but good money), working at Convergyce from home (againg not a fun job but I get to stay home and pretty good money), babysitting (not the funnest idea but at least I get to be with Brayden), or working at the daycare center at Gold's Gym (not a lot of money but I get to be with Brayden). It is kind of frusterating becuase all I really want to do is be a full time mom to my adorable little boy, but hey somebody has to pay off my student loans. I'll keep you updated on what I decide to do.
Anyways that is about all that is going on around here...I'll post more later. Love ya' all and hope all is well.


This past June I had not been feeling completely like myself. I was tired, and a little quesy. I also noticed that everything smelt a lot more stronger. So I decided to take a pregnancy test... Just in case. Well the first test that I took came out positive, and the second test... Yep, it was postive (The second line is really faint, but it was still there).
After the third test I finally came to the conclusion that I am pregnant. So surprise!

I am now about eleven weeks along. Yesterday I finally came to fully believe that I am pregnant after I went to the doctor and got to hear the heart beat. I knew all along that I was pregnant. I guess that I have just been in a state of shock because it was such a surprise for us. It took us so long to get Brayden that I just figured we would be in the same boat for the rest of our kids. But I guess the Lord thought that Brayden needed a little sibling before he gets any more spoiled. The baby is due sometime in February.
