Another Update

Well, I realized that I haven't written anything of substance in a while so I figured I should probably get on that.

We are now living in Midway, UT and still trying to get settled in. We are a little slow at getting unpacked, but we do love our condo and the town. My mom and sister were able to come this last weekend to help us decorate a little bit, which was so nice! I'll wait to post pictures until I'm happy with the way it looks! Tonight, however, we were able to go to the cute Heber farmer's market. It was fun and quaint and here were our spoils:
Yummy fresh peaches that are sweeter than dessert. We bought ice cream to put them on but I don't think they are going to make it that long!!!

I went to the doctor today and was able to hear the heartbeat of our little "cinnamon bear" as my doctor called the baby. It was the coolest thing to be able to feel my own heartbeat at the same time the nurse was getting the sound of my baby's heartbeat. Wow, what a miracle!

The pregnancy seems to be going pretty well. I am starting to feel better (meaning being sick for fewer hours in the day) which makes me very happy. I didn't think I was having any weird cravings (or so I thought) until I realized how Steve was looking at me when I told him what I wanted for dinner tonight: breakfast sandwiches and corn. I guess it was a little strange.

Although I do have more interesting things to post about, I have kind of a one track mind right now. I'm trying to buy books for my classroom library and am having a hard time. I've been looking on EBay but I am always outbid (I guess I'm not aggressive enough!). I was wondering where any of you moms and dads or teachers buy affordable books for your kids/classrooms. I still need to go to Deseret Industries, but I'm open to suggestions!

Great job on the guesses...I am pregnant! Yes, I get to enjoy all of those fun and lovely symptoms, but I take great consolation knowing there is a little person (more of an alien right now) growing inside of me. I am fairly early along, just in my 10th week, so it's still pretty early. We're still in kind of the "scary stage," but we wanted to let everyone else in on the joy we've been feeling for the past few weeks. What a blessing! Keep us in your thoughts for the next few weeks as I finish up my first trimester.
So for now my

We Need Some Help

On Saturday Steve and I are moving up to Midway, hooray! As smart as we are, we chose to move on a holiday weekend, thus help is in short supply. If any of you will be in the Lehi area on Saturday morning and are in need of something to do, we would love your help loading up the moving truck. We could also use some help unloading in Midway if you are really bored that day! We don't have much to offer but food can be part of the equation : ). If anybody is interested just give me a call or email or something for directions. Thanks!
