Family Update

I have been very blessed this pass month so many new and exciting things going on and so much to update! Christmas went so very well this year. Kevin and I went to Idaho to see my family this year. We stayed in Sugar City with my dad and my sister. We played games, ate good yummy food, watched movies all night and just had a good time. The next night we stayed in Rexburg with my mom and brother and had fun there also. I am now 26 weeks pregnant and still loving every minute of it! Kailyn moves alot and just loves her dad. Over Christmas weekend Kailyn moved alot for her grandpa and aunt it was really nice to share that with them. I take my glucose test January 11th and i also will be in my third trimester that day!! My wonderful sister is going baby crazy and buying all sorts of cute baby things for Kailyn. Kevin and I are getting ready to move out to our own apartment in about a month from now and could not be more excited. Living with the in-laws is really not fun. Being on our own will be lots better for sure. Dont get me wrong i do love them but just not the best place for us to be at. New years is coming up its wierd to thing its almost 2010. Time to make new years resolutions and stick to them.

I cant believe December is here and there is no snow. I am not the biggest fan of snow but December and snow just have to go together i think. I am just now kinda figuring out how this blog thing works and my page is looking much better i have to say. Kevin is going to be starting school here soon he is concidering being an EMT!! He is still trying to figure out exactly what it is he wants to do. I am going to be attending school here soon also at MATC for my LPN. The sooner i start the better it is a 6 month to a year program so it should go by fast!! I cant wait to get my nursing license it will help in sooooo many ways!! I still have not decided where i want to work as a nurse but my choices i am interested in so far is ultrasounds, in a nursing home {cause i am already use to it}, and autopsy x rays. Who know what i will go into as a nurse but i cant wait. Kailyn is moving more and more everyday it feels so cool and i love to know that she is there. She is getting stronger and stronger its so fun. She is now 12 inches from head to toe and is almost one pound!! Kevin and I love to watch her ultrasound video over and over again because the whole time she is moving around and smiling and yawning. We have never seen one when the baby had been awake before and that active. She is already high strung i guess lol just kidding. Everything is going well i love this season the hollidays are the best time of year for sure.
