Exchange Student

WOAH I CANT BELIEVE how neglected my blog is.
Sorry about that!!!
Well I just wanted to write down that we have an exchange student
from Brazil this year. We are so happy and feeling extremely blessed.

I wasn't sure how it was all going to work out, or how I would do being
a host mom to a teenager but it turns out it's not as hard as I thought.
It helps that she's a great girl! We love having her in our home so far, and
although its only been a week and a half I can tell we are going to enjoy having
her in our home. Timothy already asks for her all day long when she's at school.

We hope to give our student Mariana, a great experience. I hope to also document her
stay through here. Hopefully I can remember to log in more.

This is so exciting! Can you tell Chris and I are thrilled to have someone else in our home.
She's so sweet!!!

I will pictures in the next post :)

Have a great week.

Our new callings

I am super duuper excited about my new calling!!
I am a primary teacher for the 7-8 year olds and I couldn't be happier. I have a huge class and  I am still getting the hang of it but I know it'll just keep getting better and better.
When I got baptized as a member I was 12 years old so I've always felt like I missed out on primary. Now that I have this calling I'm loving every minute of it. I am learning so much, specially those primary songs.

Chris is the an assistant ward clerk now! He was a little sad/bummed about being released as the ward librarian. I know he will love his calling because that's just the type of person he is, have I mentioned how much I love him?? He's such a wonderful worthy loving priesthood holder.

We feel extremely blessed right now. Good night.


Baby someday...

Lately I've been thinking about lots of things. I will share with you what I've been pondering about lately by making a list of what I've been thinking:

1. Family vacations
2. Temples
3. Our Future
4. Schooling
5. More babies?

Since I haven't blogged in months I will just do a brief explanation of why I haven't written much.
It's been a busy year for us! It feels like with a blink of an eye we start one month and next thing I know it's ending. I can't believe how busy we stay and how days just seem to cruise. Right now I am loving playing with Timothy and Analicia almost everyday. We have a blast! It's challenging at times but I absolutely love being able to watch them grow and learn.
Out of all the things going on in our lives and our plans for this year we have something very important that's been on our minds. We have been thinking a lot about whether we want to really try to have another baby. I think I'm not 100% sure at this moment but I know that I want it to happen sooner than later. Honestly though, Im scared! I know that's a lame excuse but I just need to keep praying and fasting to ask Heavenly Father about what's the next step and if I need to pursue something right now. I just feel like this is an extremely hard topic because it's a beautiful but trying experience for me. I just hope that if we decide to continue to pursue it this year that it'll come true when it needs to. I often have to remind myself that I'm not alone and that Heavenly Father and Jesus are right them to hold my hand through anything (and of course my amazing husband).  Not only do I need to trust in Him more but I need to remember that it's not on our time but his. I pray that our family will be sensitive to the Spirit and that we may keep growing and maturing spiritually because it will help us with anything that comes our way. Have a great week my friends :)

Please don't do this

So this week I came to a conclusion that I don't like it when people talk bad about their significant other and put them on blast. I just don't think anyone deserves that. If you have a problem with your significant other, I believe you should talk to them and try to work towards fixing the problem.

Now you might be wondering why I'm saying this... Well I can across someone that I know talking bad about their spouse. I don't like it one bit and it kind of makes me mad. I was talking to Chris about it and he was fired up about it too.

My husband and I really got to talking about it and we both decided that it's silly that some people will go and start bashing on their spouse. What I'm trying to say is we all need to remember how powerful words are. We need to speak kind words to one another and say nice things about others.. I know I try and always say nice things about my husband and others. I've always thought that words hurt more than anything else. Wouldn't you want people to talk good things about you?

Almost half-way

Hello there.
Can you believe it's almost June??
Dang it, and I've only blogged seven times!!!
Woops so much for my goal of trying to be better at blogging.
I failed.
Oh well guess I will make up for it in the 6 1/2 months I have
left. So if I blow up your blog newsfeed, I'm sorry. Not really ; )
Anyways I am in a typing/writing mood. I could be sleeping but I can't
right now. It stinks because I get insomnia in the most inconvenient times.
I guess I will update you on life.
 {Let's see it's getting so hot it makes it hard to even want to go
 outside, (unless you're swimming that is)}
{I am loving being a stay home mom}
{I am falling more and more in love with my husband even
though I didn't think it was possible}
{I am still doing photography and it's a nice money maker,
and it keeps me busy editing pictures, and improving my skills}
{Timothy is no longer a baby, he's a big boy!}
{We have been having a great 2013}
{Getting excited for swim season and this summer}
{I am getting over a hard time I've been having that
absolutely sucks, let's just say midol and chocolate
have been my best friends}
{I notice how much of a baby and a whimp I can be}
{Date nights have been life-savers}
{The Gospel has kept me sane, and positive through anything
and everything}
{Our first date 3rd year anniversary is this month!}
{Time is going too fast}
{Taking pictures of the babies and weddings have
been my favorite right now}
{I know I'm random, but that's why you love me!}
{I need to post more. THE END} 
(How cute is our family picture that we took in March?)
Love ya!

I am filled with excitedment. I am jumping up and down inside! I get to go to seaworld next month for my first time with my little family and some friends. I am thrilled!!!! I absolutely love going out of town and having some fun. Also, I'd like to mention we are staying at a super nice hotel. I can hardly wait and I want to just fast forward until next month. Not only that but next month my little love bug turns one!!!! I can't believe how fast time flies. Next month is going to be busy but fun. I can't wait to celebrate with my family and friends my babies birthday. Have a good weekend my friends, I know I will.
