Catching Up

I haven't blogged in a while. Life has been really crazy lately. We've spent a lot of time on a big project that I'm not allowed to blog about yet... But rest assured sometime you'll all know why we've been so busy and gone so much. Sorry, dear friends, I promise we'll get together soon! I've been saying to everyone, "Let's do something next week!" and then things get crazy and I don't have time to do anything. Also, young women's basketball has started so that's kept me busy on Thursday nights.

On top of all that, Cory's adorable Grandma Joyce who used to live above us passed away last week. Her funeral was Saturday. I've never seen Cory cry that much and it was really hard to watch. I love him so much and it killed me to see him that upset. But, he also knows we'll see her again and she's up in heaven with our future children and any other posterity that's working hard up there. She was such a funny lady and we'll miss her a lot. I'm glad she left behind a legacy of hard work and hilarious stories so that everyone has something great to remember her by. I'm glad we got to live with her for a time so I could get to know her better.

In happier news, This Friday I'll be 4 months pregnant. I can't believe how fast time has flown! I'll put up a little belly picture here in a little bit. Probably after next week. My pants won't comfortably zip up anymore and I'm thinking of trying out my first pair of maternity pants today, just for the pure comfort of them. We hopefully get to find out on the 28th what we're having. Not a single person has said they think we're having a girl or said they even want us to have a girl so please, don't be sad if we're having a girl haha. A boy would be convenient, but we'll love it no matter what it is. I just hope the little bean cooperates on that day. I'm not sure I can wait another month to find out! I also need to get my butt in gear and start a consistent exercise program. I've been so lazy!! I want a good delivery so I'd better start keeping myself healthy.

So, for anyone who missed this little bit of information, my little brother Collin is engaged!! Her name is Natalie and they are so perfect together. We like her a lot and can't wait till May when they get to be sealed together. It's so weird thinking of Collin taking on that kind of responsibility but he loves her and they're happy so we're excited for them. Once again we have a wedding and a baby in the same summer! It's the way we do things on my side of the family.

Life has been really good as far as everything else goes. We're really happy and feel so blessed each and every day. I honestly sit in awe sometimes at how blessed we've been. I hope that doesn't sound boastful in any way. I just always want to remember that everything we have has been a blessing from the Lord and I'm so grateful for that. There are people with much less and people with much more. But regardless of what others have, I'm filled with gratitude that we've always had everything we've needed; and that's enough for us.

Ooooh, maternity pants!! Since the family found out your good news, it seems they've been waiting for us to make an announcement, since we were married only a couple of weeks after you two!

Grandma Joyce's funeral was very nice. She was a real joy, and I only saw her a handful of times... We miss her!
