Am I 18 weeks now?

Good grief, I can't even remember. I do know, however, that I can have my ultrasound any time now. I just have to schedule it.

I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas. We did. We got to have Melanie here, and she left this morning, and I am quite sad about it. But it was fun, and probably really boring for her. Miaya didn't come with me to the airport this morning when I went to take Melanie, so when she woke up I let her know that Melanie had gone home, and she was really sad. She loves it when the aunties and uncles are all around. So do I. I miss it so much when they all leave. :( boo hoo.

Let's see. I am also the new Primary president in our ward. My first Sunday was two days ago. It's a bit overwhelming, but not. Just a lot to learn, I guess. I have a great presidency, and wonderful teachers, so it will be a good thing. I keep crying, but I think its more of an everything combined kind of crying, and not so much because of one thing or another. Poor Dustin is a bit at a loss sometimes, I think. Sometimes one just needs a really great sob session. :P

I'll do a better post soon. With pics and everything. :D

The Nutcracker

Miaya's first performance of the Nutcracker is tonight! And last night at rehearsal's, we got Miaya's pics as a fishie. It's cute. The lady that took the pics was so awesome! Miaya hadn't had a nap that day, and so she was really tired. She didn't want to smile or anything, and so when they were all done, she had Miaya come back, and with my help, Miaya finally smiled. hahahaha. It was great.

The photo's were taken by JBP photography.

Thanksgiving Shooting

Thanksgiving morning, we usually go shooting and invite people to go with us. It's a lot of fun. We take our .22's and a couple of shotguns, and have a good old time. The first year I went, we went with a bunch of Dustin's friends. I'm usually the only girl, but this year it was me, Miaya, AND Moose! Three ladies. :D We also went with Ray, Dustin's step-dad, Adam, Dustin's brother, and Kurtis, our nephew. Miaya shot her first gun. Before you freak out, Dustin was with her the WHOLE time, and it didn't really interest her. She only pulled the trigger when Dustin would tell her to. She was shooting the .22, and she got several lessons in gun safety before we got there, and before she shot the rifle.

Moose did really well too. She got a little skittish when we first started to shoot, so we had her hop in the back of the truck, and she just enjoyed the sun.
This was Miaya's preferred activity. She got the little shovel out that we keep around in case we have to dig out. She was digging holes and looking for treasure. It was great fun. She had a blast.

Getting our Christmas tree

We got our Christmas tree in the Uintas. We were the only ones up there. The only other tracks we saw were snow mobile tracks, and I'm pretty sure they were from the day before. It was a gorgeous sunny day, but it was oh so cold. :D Miaya only got out of the jeep for a little while. She ended up falling in the snow with no gloves on and started screaming "My hands are freezing!" Poor girl. We told her to shake the snow off, but she wouldn't. It was funny and sad all at the same time. She told me she wanted to get back in the jeep with Moose and Dustin and I could take care of the Christmas tree. hahahaahaha. AND the ONLY thing that could get her to stop crying was putting a band aid on each hand. Weird, huh? She is convinced of the healing properties of band aid's.

Halloween, and such

I noticed I didn't ever put any Halloween pics up, so here are a few. Miaya was a fairy. See her little wings? She wore them for like 2 seconds. She enjoyed knocking on all the doors and saying trick or treat. And hanging out with some of her cousins. It was a fun night.

One of my snapdragons. It stubbornly refuses to die. Dustin took this pic. I like it.
My little princess girl.

Watch me grow.

Ugh. So I am a bit loath to put these up, but I do want to share too. A note, though. My hair and skin are freaking out. And I'm a bit lumpy, aren't I? hahahahaha. I don't mind.

Okay top to bottom: Week 13, 12, 11, 10, 8, 7. Good grief. I missed this week too. I feel like I look 6 months pregnant already.
