What I am Thankful for

This has been the best Thanksgiving of my entire life.  I feel more happy now then I ever remember feeling.  It has been so wonderful for two reasons.  One, because a year and a half ago I married the most incredible man in the whole world.  He has given me an even better outlook on life.  He is funny, spiritual, smart, a good provider, loving and so cute.  In young women's when we made a list of our future companions qualities I would have felt guilty imagining a man this perfect but it's true and I am so grateful for him.  The second reason is because we are expecting a beautiful baby girl in April.  All I have ever wanted to do is be a mother.  I already love her so much.  And holy cow J is so cute when it comes to our little princess.  I was a little worried that he would be sad it was not a boy but I was wrong.  He talks so highly of her, always texting me and asking how his girls are or telling me how much he loves us.  I am living a fairy tale.  Life is not always perfect but with the right person and attitude it can be close.  Heavenly Father has blessed me so much, I am so grateful for the all he has given me.

We didn't tell people for a long time about our baby because I was so scared of losing her.  I am 21 weeks along now, and starting to show so I thought it was about time to let everyone know.  I was so sick for so long!  From weeks 12-19 I had a head cold three times, virus for a week, stomach flue and morning sickness.  Needless to say, it was not my favorite but I did learn a couple things.  One, JD does great with throw up, he even holds my hair.  Two, not all throw up sacks are reliable.  Some have holes that make you throw up all over your brand new car.  Three, bial, or whatever that stomach crap is... well do everything to avoid it.  It was really a rough couple months there but its worth it, now that I know my little girl is healthy I dont even care. It was worth it.  I will be sacrificing for her for the rest of my life and I am going to love it.

Here are some pictures of the last little bit of our lives...

 This is how I have spent the majority of my free time for the past couple months.  Man have I been tired, that is actually what made me think I might actually by prego.  I was talking to Sara and she said that the only thing she felt when she was first pregnant was being tired, and I have never been this tired, EVER!  .    

These are beautiful flowers JD gave me, you cant see the card but it says, "Because I love you."
 This is one of our best friends, Brad and Sara's beautiful baby Aisley Mae.  She is so dang cute and she loves Jd.  Her and our baby girl are going to be about the same age apart as me and Sara are. 
 These are our pumpkins.  Ha I did the one on the left, JD the right.  It was so fun I love pumpkins.
