Christmas time!!!!

Wow what a crazy month this has been. Not only did i have everything all set up and ready for Christmas on December 2nd but then we decided to suddenly pick up and move to Springville.... I was telling myself, "This wont be so bad i don't have that much stuff to move, how hard could it be?" HAHAH wow well let me tell you, having your husband work at RC Willey where he has access to great deals on TVs and Couches and beds an all that fun stuff you collect a TON of stuff in just over a year and a half!

After a week of packing and moving and getting all settled in we are finally in our "home" because now that everything is unpacked it really feels like home. its great!!

While unfortunately i will not be celebrating an announcement of pregnancy this month i will be excited to announce that for an early birthday present Trav bought me the cutest KITTY!!! she is adorable, she is an orange tabby, with gorgeous green eyes!! i love her so much... sadly she is still without a name... nothing is fitting her just right so we are still on the look out for one, any suggestions would be appreciated :)

Being in this new place is great! Me and Trav and been wanting a change of scenery and what do you know it came for FREE!!!

I haven't gotten many pictures of the place yet but once i clean a little more then ill take pics and post them :) for now i just have some of the outside of the house, a few Christmas crafts i did with the help of Travis' mom, and my cute little nameless kitty!!! so here you are with some fun pics.

The Naughty and Nice blocks that we made... they were so much fun

This one isnt all the way finished, its the North Pole, where you can hang your stockings if you dont have a fireplace... i havent made the North Pole sign yet.

This is our cute little Christmas tree!! since we werent able to cut one down this year we got this at Wal-Mart

My cute little kitty.... she has the prettiest fur! She has spots like a leopard on her sides and then stripes on her legs and tail. and she has long pointy ears and the cutest big eyes

She is still really little so its hard to get a got face shot of her, she doesnt sit still for very long!

This is the front of the house

the driveway is the devil with snow and ice...

This is the backyard, (before all the snow came, we have TONZ OF IT!!) the backyard is beautiful we have a mountain in it!!

This is our side entrance since we live in the basement!

so ya, new pictures of the inside soon to come!

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Yes its really true, we are really moving!
Trav's parents are moving into a house in Springville that has a basement apartment with separate entrance and everything!!!
The apartment is 3 bedroom, 1 bath and they asked us to live there for FREE!!!!
Since Trav's dad isnt around all the time my father-in-law wants someone to be there in case of any accidents for his grandpa, who lives with them.
This is such a great opportunity for us, we have our on private little apartment but are also close by if we want to visit family.
Plus the no rent thing is an amazing blessing, it will help us so much to get Trav through school and also to prepare us even more for a baby, when the time finally comes. We are so excited and are going to start moving in Friday/Saturday, hopefully.
An awesome thing about this house, is the backyard is a mountain.... free to roam. its so cool i will post pictures soon.

Half an update...

Well i went and got the test (Hysterosalpingogram.. yeah say that 5 times fast) done yesterday and let me just say it was nothing like i thought it would be.... As the nurse was explaining to me what was going to be going on i just stared at her and was thinking really?? hahah. it honestly wasn't so bad, it just wasn't what i was expecting.... and it hurt... oh did it hurt.... not to be graphic or crude or anything but you know the little metal spread they use when you go to get a premarital exam? yeah this thing was twice as big and after it was in he cranked the thing wide open.... it was like being dilated to a 5 i swear!!! it hurt and after he inserted the tube for the dye... he pulled out the metal spread and when he did that, he yanked out the tube.... so he had to go in and do it AGAIN!!!! :( ouch

After everything was in and good, he took the x-ray and showed me my uterus and the tube... it was really cool to see this big dark puddle of fluid being sucked up into a tube and then spill back out again... yes that means that my one and only tube is in fact OPEN. Which makes the thought pop into my head, " then why am i not getting pregnant? what else is wrong?"

After we did the X-Ray and saw the tube was open the Radiologist left and the nurse told me i could go clean up, she also warned me that i might have some menstrual cramping, hahah might?? holy Hannah i had such bad cramps after i left the hospital i felt like i was going to vomit!!! they hurt so bad! Plus i had to be to work in an hour after leaving the hospital, and while at work i had a small fever... it was not fun, but with the help of some extra strength Tylenol i was as good as new by the end of the night.

Now i am waiting patiently for my OB/GYN to call me back and tell me what the next step is.

It feels great finally doing something about this no baby nonsense. I just hope i don't have to wait another year or even 6 months. But i am hopeful, very hopeful :) Thanks for all the support, ill let you know what my doctor has planned for us next!
