Hello again!!!

I want to know who has checked my blog the most and been most frustrated that I haven't posted anything new?? I can't believe it's been over 3 months. Our summer got a little hectic for a while apparently. School has started and things have slowed down a little. I'm not going to go back and repost pictures because I took probably over 1000 pics this summer. So I'll just go from here and maybe try to keep better updated :)
I guess some of you may know of some things that have happened around here. I guess our biggest news that a lot of people don't know (because we didn't tell anyone before we split from the Sarival Ward) is that I'm pregnant. Now since it's been 3 months since I've posted and I was pregnant before that I only have 10 weeks left. We're having another boy. We think we're going to name him Tanner Austin but we're not 100% on that. The kids like that name though.
Other news...Randy graduated from ASU in May!!! We are glad to be finished. That was sure a long haul through college with so many kids but I'm grateful Randy sacrificed for us and went through it anyway. In May we also celebrated our 9th anniversary. Time flies when you're having fun, right?
June was very busy! Our ward got split and I got kicked out from being with my 2 brothers and my cousin. We're in the new Canyon Trails ward. A couple weeks after it split I went to Girl's Camp with my partner in crime (Stephanie Frazier). We sure have lots of fun up there!!! The rest of the leaders may think we're crazy but we think it's fun. What's more fun than playing Marco Polo in Walmart and having some stranger join in the game? When I got back I got called as the Young Women's President. WOW! I love the YW so I don't mind but life is going to be busy for a while esp when the baby comes. I knew I needed excellent counselors that could take over while I'm out. I couldn't have better ones!!
July was also action packed. We had a family reunion at Panguitch Lake, UT. It was so gorgeous up there!!! I could have stayed another week or so except that I was already annoyed at the lack of phone service. It was nice for a while but when you're trying to conduct real estate business on vacation with no service it doesn't work out so well. We went on lots of hiking and fishing trips. At the end of July I got to go on the Pioneer Trek with the youth. Originally I was suppose to go as a Big Sister but I was pregnant and they wouldn't let me. So Stephanie and I traded and I went as a photographer. That was awesome to capture the youth but next time I am definitely going as a Big Sister. Then maybe I won't be lost for 4 hours in the dark on a quad in the rain with mud splattering from head to toe and 3 pounds of it in each eye. That's my long story short about that.
Anyway, school just started. That makes life a little easier but then harder at the same time because then our day is packed with getting homework finished and everything else.
So...that is the last 3 months very condensed! Sorry it has taken me so long to update this. I'll throw in some pictures over the next week or so...hopefully! Now I have to catch up on reading everyone elses who have actually been posting.
