The Real Big News

Okay, so I think Beth guessed right in a previous comment because the last and big post before we head off to VA is...We're Pregnant! We are about 15 weeks along and things are going well. Kyle loves writing on Brighton's belly so the big news is pictured above if you couldn't already tell. Little B is super excited (as excited as a 2-year-old can be) and even knows that the baby is in mommy's belly. So anyway, the cat's out of the bag and the word is out!

The B-Day Girl!

Today is the big day that Brighton turns 2! I can't believe 2 years has already passed by! It's crazy! Well, since we've been kinda stressing over packing and moving, we didn't do much for her birthday. We went over to our friends' house for dinner and FHE and Little B blew out some matches (we didn't have any candles) on a cupcake. Also, we saved some presents that my parents sent so she could open them and she had a good time with that. Anyway, it was a fun little evening and today (her real birthday) she opened a package from my Nana (her great-nana) and she was in heaven! As you can see in the pic above, she got a little chair that she hasn't gotten out of, and a Dora doll that she has a death grip on. Needless to say, she Love love loved the stuff! Thanks so much Nana!
P.S. A little bad news that I forgot to mention in my previous post is that we won't have a computer in VA, so thursday will be our last post for a few months, unless I can find the internet somewhere close to where we'll be living. We'll see, so stay tuned!

Student Nursing 5k Fun Run and Some News

So today Kyle signed up to do this 5k Run for the Nursing Dept. and Brighton wanted to "exercise with daddy" as she puts it, so we all went there and decided to run it. It was a lot of fun and was a great fundraiser for the program. Kyle ran with Brighton the whole way and even picked up a friend's daughter to keep B company. Anyway, fun stuff!
On unrelated news, I know a few of you already know this, but some big news is that we're moving! We're actually moving next week for the summer and we're going to Virginia! It's a big move, but we're really excited. Kyle got a summer job there, and we'll be 45 minutes away from Washington D.C. so we'll get to see some sights. It'll be a good little adventure for the summer and then we'll be back here in Cedar for the school year. We will definitely miss the friends we've made here, but are excited to come back to the place we feel is home. So now you know!

My future's so bright...

We just wanted to thank my mom and dad for sending the birthday package! Once Brighton found these in the loot, she couldn't take them off!

My Hair

So you've probably seen from other pictures that I did my hair, but I thought I'd show the before and after results. A friend of mine in the ward did it and I'm a fan. The pics don't really show it that well, but I love it! I just needed a little change so here it is:

A long time gone

Okay so it's been a while, but we've been gone for a bit and I just wanted to update everyone on our happenings and whereabouts. So the week before General Conference, in order to get out of the studying fool's hair, we went to Annie and Joe's house and stayed there so all the sisters could go to this baby expo which was such a fun day out with all the girls and we even got to see Val and Alexandria who were visiting for the week from Washington. It was a ton of fun. After that, I headed further north to Ogden to stay with the Meegans for a week. We had been planning this trip for a while and it kept getting cancelled so it's been a long time coming. We had so much fun and Gracie was so good to Brighton. Brighton thought Gracie was seriously the coolest thing in the world and followed her around and copied everything she did. She is still talking about her! We did a lot of fun stuff that week including going to the children's museum, taking many baths together, going out to breakfast and chatting for hours on end. I think I can talk to Clarissa about anything in the world and it never gets old! It was too short of a trip but very enjoyed. We miss them already! Thanks so much for lettiung us stay there guys! Also, Kyle's mom works at the Ogden temple and happened to be in town when we were heading out so we got to see her for a little bit which was nice. Kathy gave Brighton her birthday present (the red puppy in the pic) and she now carries it around everywhere. Anyway, it was a funfilled week and we're settling back into Cedar life again. Thought we'd let you know we didn't drop off the face of the earth!
