I'm so excited to share that I FINALLY have a job interview!  I am very excited and can't wait.  My job interview is on Halloween.  Extra prayers on my behalf would be most appreciated!  I'm very nervous, and it's been quite a few years since I've had an interview.  Just wanted to share my exciting news!

I finally have a few pictures to upload!  Elliana today was watching me as I was getting ready and insisted on having her hair like Mommies.  So we decided to straighten her hair.  It turned out adorable and makes her look SO grown up!  She loved it and was turning her head and flipping her hair all day long!

 Tomorrow at school they are having her Halloween party and so we needed to try on her costume to make sure it fit.  She loves it and I think she looks pretty dang cute!  She's going to be a pirate princess!

Hope you enjoyed the new pictures of our little princess!  She's the light of our lives and we love her very much!

Tom and I went to the Dr. on Wednesday morning and all is well with the baby!  I am 12 weeks today and finally starting to feel a little better most days.  I definitely still have my moments of feeling very sick, but today is a good day!  We heard the babies heart beat and it ranges from 155-160.  We are so excited to find out if we are having a boy or a girl.  Neither of us have a clue what it is.  I think the plan is for us to wait and find out what we're having on Christmas.  So I think what we'll do is have the Dr. write down what we're having and put it in an envelope and mail it off to my sister-in-law Heather who will then get a gift for us for Christmas, either pink or blue so we'll know what we're having.  I just don't know if I can wait that long....because the Dr. said that he'll tell me at my next appointment what it is, and that's in 3 1/2 weeks, and Christmas is a LONG time after that, so I just don't know if I can wait!  We'll see.....

That's all for now; pictures to come soon!

BYU Football

Tom and I have some great friends across the street the Orme's!  They have some extra tickets for the BYU Football game tonight, and we're going to go!  We aren't going to take Elliana since the game is so late, but I am SO excited!

I've decided that it's SO nice to live close to family.  Last night Tom was working late so Elliana and I got together with my cousin Ty and his wife and kids.  It was so fun to go over and hang out, eat dinner and play games.  They have a little girl Crystal who is close to Elliana's age and they are such good friends!  I love living by family!

Quick Trip

Tom and I decided to make a quick trip to Idaho Falls to see our families!  It was SO fun to go home for the weekend!  We were able to leave Thursday evening, and came home last night (Sunday) late.  On Thursday, we played games with my family, and then went to bed.  Friday we were able to see Tom's mom at work, then go see my mom at work.  After that, Tom went to lunch with his brother Jared, while Elliana and I hit the hair salon. I DESPERATELY needed a hair cut and my Grandma was kind enough to fund it for me.  Thanks Grandma!  I don't have a picture, but will get one soon, it is SO cute, and I love it!!!  After Tom had lunch he went to the library to study all afternoon and got home just in time to wake Elliana and I for dinner.  We had pizza and watched the BYU vs. USU game.  It was so fun to be able to watch the game with so much family!

Saturday we spent the day with Tom's family, chopping wood.  It was hard work, but we got it all done, so his parents can have wood all winter.  We finished our work and then we were able to play games.

Sunday we spent the day with my family watching conference and playing games again.  I love being with family, I just wish I felt better so I would be more pleasant to be around, and not feel so sick all the time.

We're doing pretty good all around though, and can't complain too much.  My dad had to work out of town all weekend, but we ended up stopping at a gas station on our way home and got to say hey for a second.  It's always nice to see my dad!  There's nothing like a daddy for a girl!

I loved listening to conference, and feel spiritually uplifted!
