I learneded something new

I was playing around on Pinterest when I saw this picture...

I went and clicked on the picture and it lead me to this blog which than taught me how to use Picnik for other things than just editing photos.

I have played around using this new learned skill and have created some fun things for this up and coming holiday called Christmas... I really hope that we will be moved in before Christmas so that we can decorate for Christmas.

this is what I was doing for the last 1/2 hour...

“In some quiet way, the expression and feelings of gratitude have a wonderful cleansing or healing nature. Gratitude brings warmth to the giver and the receiver alike,” 
Elder Robert D. Hales
   I have always done a list of things that I'm grateful for each year and so my tradition is going to continue...
  1. I'm so grateful for my hubby Brandon...  he has worked so hard at school, work, and being a wonderful hubby.  I'm so grateful for him and everything he does for his family. (like taking the time to add the stress of finding a home for his wife and daughter to live and dealing with the stress of home buying.)
  2. Lexy- I'm grateful to have this little angel watching over me and the love she showed to us and still continues to show us.
  3. Baby Girl Waite-  I'm so grateful to be pregnant again and to be a mother to another daughter.  I love feeling her kick me.  I can't wait to meet her.  I already love her so much.
  4. Family- being able to spend time with family.
  5. 2 Cats name Baylee and Keke- they are there when you need them to be.
  6. Finding a home and waiting to see when we can move in so that we can start a new journey.
  7. Having an apartment that we feel welcomed to be there with our cats and all.
  8. Both of us having jobs with insurance.
  9. Friends to be there when you need them to be and be there for them when they are in need for comfort.
  10. Heavenly Father- I know that He is there watching over us every step of the way.   He is there for us when we need Him and when we feel like we can conquer this world all on our own.

Happy Birthday!!!

Hubby is now a QUARTER of a century old!  Hubby had school yesterday on his birthday so when he came home we just made an easy dinner and had a little piece of cake and he got to open his gifts.  Hubby has been asking for tools for birthday and Christmas.  So I got him a leveler, a stud finder (so we don't end up with a million holes in our walls when we go to hang the t.v.), and a drill piece set.  Brandon was very excited about his new level.  Today we are going to celebrate his birthday we are going to go see the movie Money Ball and than to Tucanos.  We haven't been to Tucanos since our wedding lunch in.  I'm very excited about it and hopefully our little girl will like it also

Baby, Homes, Oh My!!!

We went for our 20 week ultrasound last Wednesday baby girl is looking healthy and perfect!  We did tell the Perinatologist that we would like to be induced at 37 weeks.  We don't want to take any chances.  We will be able to see our little girl again at 28 weeks and again at 34 weeks when they will start the non-stress tests.  Our little girl was sleeping hands up above her head she sleeps like me.  They tried to wake her up by poking and prodding she didn't wake up but when she did 20 minutes later she was not happy with me like I was the one who poked and prodded her.  I'm now 21 weeks along and feeling her kick more and more which is a big comfort for me.

Other exciting news...
We have a house and we are just waiting for the closing date and hopefully everything works out.  We are quite excited about it.  The house is painted a light yellow there are two bay windows one of which is in our bedroom.  There are two rooms upstairs ours and our little girls room.  The other 3 are downstairs.  Oh yeah the downstairs is completely finished!  We have a storage room for all the extra food downstairs.  We have a decent sized kitchen, a formal dining room, and a formal living room.  We can't wait for the day they hand over the keys and we can move in.  We are hoping that we will be able to move in before Christmas.  Our mortgage broker has told us he is working with the bank that is selling the house and he can see us moving in before the end of November.  But because we are buying a short sale I have put my hopes on that we can move in before Christmas.  More importantly I'm so excited to use our washer and dryer.  I miss them :(
I think I'm going to take a trip to home depot to pick out some color samples today.
While hubby is at school.
and maybe do some Birthday shopping for him!
His Birthday is on Thursday and he is going to be 25!!!

Love Birds

My parents celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary this last weekend!  They are truly in love!  It is the greatest joy to see the love that my parents share.  I never went a day of my life not seeing my mom and dad kiss.  They never hid their kisses from us children.  We would always see them give each other kisses saying goodbye before heading to work and when they return home.  We even have seen them kissing while cooking meals.  My mom has a kissing step she stands on so that she can reach my dad.  We even call it the kissing step.  It is the first step you take to get into the house.  It is a reminder that love is and always will be in this home.  I had a wonderful childhood being able to see the love of my parents.  

I have a loving mom and a loving dad.  I have six brothers and sisters.  I have over 10 nieces and nephews.  I have a wonderful husband.  A beautiful Angel Lexy.  I have another baby girl on the way.

Thank you Mom for following dad home.  Taking the big jump and leap over the pond and coming over to America.  To little ol' Pleasant Grove to be with the farm boy who captured your attention.  Thank you Dad for loving mom so very much and being the best husband and father to her children.  I Love You!!!


We got together as a family the week before their wedding anniversary to celebrate with them.  My dad had taken my mom out on the normal Saturday adventure and that is when their kids came to take over the home.  My mom was so surprised to see all of their kids cars parked outside of the house.  Even more surprised when we told her we were all moving back in! Just kidding!  We had a wonderful lunch with our parents and enjoyed celebrating their anniversary with them.
