This morning I sent Roy off at 6:30 packed up for a bike ride up to Heber. I love that that kid is so unconventional! My family is having a family reunion up there this weekend, and one of the first things Roy proposed was to take Friday off and ride his bike up there rather than catch a ride with the fam. Crazy kid planned on it taking 5 hours. Yeah, he did it in like 4 even when he had to come back down Parley's because the frontage road gate was closed. Just another day for Roy!
Today marks the 14th week in Prego land. The feelings this week...my finger nails are growing like crazy, core muscles are sore, and if I do any kind of exercise my hips make sure I know that they are feeling it. And what can I say about the crazy dreams??? They are nuts! Among the past few days I may or may not have flipped off some of my young women, stole gas, run away from a madman, and slept in a church: all as real as day, but not reality. I wish my dreams were of the caliber that made dreaming in quality HD worth it. But right now I wake up completely unnerved or baffled by what just transpired. So bizarre!
But even my dreams can't ruin that is finally Friday!

13 weeks and growing (you don't get a face shot because I'm currently growing a mullet). We should be seeing this kid sometime around January 28th.
When I found out the second go around I couldn't sleep, I guess that's what I get for taking the test right before bed. But after you loose something like that it really hits home at how much you wanted it in the first place. It's been great having that desire push me through all the worries and fears of becoming a mom, because now I know what I really wanted to begin with.
I'm finally feeling less sick and the thought of food isn't as repulsive, and I'll be honest I haven't really even been that sick (No emergency trips to the bathroom or anything). So sorry to all you ladies that were super sick, especially during the whole thing. If I had to sum up these first three months it would be: starving all the time and not wanting to eat. I've been living on a diet of lots of fruit, toast, and a little bit of meat. The funny thing is all I've really wanted was just a plain deli sandwich, but since deli meat is off limits unless it's warmed up, that's been a no go. Oh well, blueberries have been keeping me going, and I'm looking forward to what the next 3 months will bring!

I spent some quality time looking up through the trees from our camp hammock...I know right...really hard camping.
Our second morning we got up at the butt crack of dawn for a sunrise hike and devotional, and as much as I prefer to sleep, you can't say that a view like that doesn't make it worth it!
We had a HUGE crew this year. With 23 girls in total (11 of those being 1st year beehives), it could have been a crazy, but amazingly enough it all went off without a hitch!
I was in charge or our ward game night on Thursday, and by dinner time all of us looked like we could go to sleep right then. Seriously, I was ready to call it a day. We were just going to leave it up to the girls if they wanted to play any of the games that I had planned, or if they just wanted to head to bed. But wouldn't you know that if you bring a couple of ginormous sweats and some pillows everyone would be in line for a little sumo wrestling.
Such a simple idea, but the girls loved it and it was hilarious to watch!
