Bit Blogged Out

Well, if you're reading this then you have found that I have gone private now. I just don't know how much I like my biz being out there for just anyone to read, so I decided to see how the private blogging bit goes. :)

So, I'm feeling a bit blogged out lately and haven't been up to doing it. I have a lot to blog about though and want to up date it (hopefully soon). We are going to be very busy in the coming month. I feel like it never stops for us. Jeremy said the other day that he keeps waiting for things to slow down but realizes that it will never happen as long as he married to me. ha ha (which is now officially "forever")!!! A time line of all the events that have happened since we met to give you an idea:

Aug 2007: Don't even know Jeremy
Sept 2007: Meet him but don't like him
Oct 2007: Go out on our first date
Dec 2007: Dating seriously and then engaged
{working/convention, planning a wedding, bridal shower, engagement/bridal pictures, meeting with vendors, planning and stressing!!! Jeremy has surgery on both knees, vacation and everything in between}
April 2008: Married & Pregnant
{Baby Shower, Shopping, Planning, No more working, Combining finances/housing/"STUFF", spring cleaning for a year}
Dec 2008: Baby Teagan Born
{New life, new everything and no sleep}
Mar 2009: Baby Blessing
April 2009: My Endowment
June 2009: Temple Sealing

...then I think every one of our friends have either gone through the temple or gotten married or about to get married since April or are pregnant (more bridal & baby showers)

We are traveling to Idaho in a couple weeks and then a few days after we get home are off to Bear Lake for the 4th of July for the whole week with the fam.

Oh and I started a business and am just waiting to get my business license in the mail. (more to come on that when more of it is in place)

AND, the big kicker that came out of no where is that we have felt really good about looking for a new home and started the search, have already found "the one" and are now putting our house up for sale this week. But, with the way the economy is, who knows what will happen. We are just trying to do our part and leaving up what is supposed to be, up to the Lord. So, we'll see...

Temple Sealing

Our little family was sealed on Friday, June 5th 2009 in the Manti, Utah Temple. This was one of the most special and amazing days I have truly ever had. I wish that I could get sealed to all of my kids individually. All of the temple workers made us feel so important. They were waiting for us when we got there with so much excitement... However, I personally think its because all of the women are elderly and knew that we had a baby coming in with us to be sealed that day. They have a little nursery for children and infants when days like this happen and the temple workers got to take Teagan and get him dressed and ready to bring him into the sealing room when we were ready. So you can imagine that it probably doesn't happen very often.

Anyway, it was so nice that we didn't have anything big planned for the entire day and we could solely focus on "just us"! There was nothing to be worried or stressed over and it made a huge difference in our day. I am so appreciative to the people that were able to make it for our special event. Thank you for traveling to Manti and sharing our day with us. And thank you Holly for being the picture taker. I noticed that you are not in very many pictures. :(

It was a really windy day and we started our day early by driving down to Manti with my good friend Ev. Evelyn had just recently received her endowments in the Draper temple only one week before our sealing and I am so glad that she was able to come to her first sealing. The three of us went to our first live session and ate in the cafeteria there afterwards. My mom brought Teagan with her and the rest of our families met up with us in the sealing room that afternoon. It was a crazy, wicked windy day and made it very hard to take pictures. All the pictures of the group we had there has their hair and dresses flying all over the place. It seemed to add to the chaos of having everyone in the picture and looking at the camera at the same time... so, thats why I didn't put any pictures up of the group.

My temple matron... or whatever they call the people that help us along all day... we found out was a long lost relative of Jeremy's family. Her name is Pearl. She is an elderly lady in her 80's and was a feisty little whipper snapper. ha ha. We keep in touch with her and say hello to her every now and again. She said her children live far away and needs more. So, next time we go to Manti we will be sure to stay with ol' Granny Pearl, as she insists we call her.

I wish that I could explain in words what this day meant to me and the feeling I had after, but it is unexplainable. I am so grateful for the gospel in my life and all of the blessings that we can be apart of if we choose to live in faith and try our best to do what we know is right and true. I am blessed to have been raised with the foundation of the church in my life and know that it is the only thing that I have to fall back on when things are hard. It gives me direction for anything I need to know. I'm sorry that I feel my thoughts are all over the place. I guess that's what I get for waiting so long to write about my experience. I had to put something up about it though because it was such a big event in our lives.

Doesn't Teagy look so dang cute in that little white outfit?
