Life is so unpredictable

Wow where do i even begin?... well now that i have told most of my family the news i know its safe to tell the rest of them on my blog for those who do read it.
Travis and i have been so blessed this new year, no sadly i am still not pregnant, but the lord is providing us with other blessings while waiting for it to happen. We have been so blessed as to be able to move down to Payson in a 6 bed 3 bath 2 car garage house, it is such a beautiful home, built in 2003 that is all ours! Oh and i forgot to mention it is on 5.17 acres of land, part is already all fenced off for horses, since the family living there now had horses there!!!! We are still going to fix up the house we are living in now and then rent it out. Travis parents and one of his sisters along with her family are also moving down to Payson into new homes on the same amount of land. We are all 3 just a few blocks away from each other!!! I know to a lot this wont make any sense at all but honestly we thought about it, prayed, and talked about it and this is where we are supposed to go, without a doubt we know this and so we are going. We move into our new home on Feb 22 and we cant wait! Although moving and packing up is such a pain but I'm still so excited. This house will take care of all our needs for the next 10 years if we wanted or the rest of our lives! But i can guarantee we will not move out of that house for at LEAST 5 years :) (I say that because Travis and I would eventually like to live in sunny Arizona one day) I know i said something like that when we moved into the house we are in now but i mean it this time.
Also since we bought this house in Payson we adopted 2 Boarder Collies from the animal shelter, one is for Travis dad but we have her for now til they move into their house. These little girls are so dang cute and so SMART!! I am blown away with how smart and fast they learn! These dogs are sheep dogs and will be outside the majority of their lives once we move out to Payson. I am so excited to live on a farm and have the responsibilities that come with living on a farm. We 3 families decided to move down to Payson because it is closer to a few of the mines that we are working on this year, this way we don't have to travel too far and.... we will have amazing views of the new Payson Temple that will be built soon!!
As you can see lots has been going on as honestly im not really home a lot and that is why i haven't been able to blog much. Maybe soon it will slow down but who knows.
Anyways i think that's it for now, until my next mind blowing, nonsense post :)

Christmas morning

My 22nd birthday, don't judge my appearance we got up at 4 am and drove 8 hours. :)

for some stupid reason it wont let me place my pictures after my post so here they are first...Sorry it has taken me so long to get on here. Lots has happened since my last post but I'm only going to sum it all up and post pictures, i mean everyone just likes to look at pictures anyways, am i right? :) Well we ended up leaving the day on the 22nd of December down to Vegas, we stayed at Prim Valley hotel and casino and it was nice, but the roller coaster at Buffalo Bills was down so we were pretty sad about that. We were so excited to get to California that we just stayed that night in Vegas, got our 75 min massages which were much needed, had dinner and went to bed. We woke up real early to head to California so my whole birthday wasnt spent in the car. We got to my parents house around... 11:30 or so. It was so good to see them again and it was awesome my mom and dad made my favorite dinner for my birthday, Tostadas with Mexican rice, and lots of guacamole!!! They even made me a Red Velvet cake with cream cheese icing yum!!!! We had so much fun while in Cali. Christmas was great, we had fires in the back yard went on a hike up to the Pinnacles, went to San Fransisco, china town, ate at Bubba Gump, went to Muir Woods, went to the Mission in San Jose and had lots of fun just being with family it was a great trip!!

ps. New year resolutions and big events that happened in 2011 post soon to come. :)
