I'm Back!

Wow, I don't even know if I remember how to do this whole blogging business. It's been forever! I'm not even going to try to fill in the last two years so I will start with what's going on now!

We are pregnant!! YAY! I don't have any pictures to post yet. I seem to be showing everywhere besides my tummy so I will post prego pictures later when the baby bump is a little more defined :)

How far along: 21 weeks, 4 days

How big is baby:  about one pound, 8" long  (the size of spaghetti squash)

Total Weight Gain: Ehhh.. 

Maternity Clothes: Still in my regular clothes but it's getting time to go shopping

Sleep: I'm so tired all the time, I can sleep through anything. During the first trimester I would wake up because I was soooo hot but now I'm back to normal. 

Best Moment This Week: Shopping for baby clothes!! It's been soo fun!

Movement: Starting to feel larger more defined kicks, rather than just wiggles, I think he had the hick-ups the other day <3

Food Cravings: Pickles, green olives and pepperoncinis. Eww, I know, but I can't get enough. 

Gender: Boy! We found out last week and we were so excited! Danny said now he doesn't have to have that fear of never having a son. We think we have the name picked out but we'll probably keep it to ourselves until in gets closer and we've decided for sure. 

Labor Signs: None, thankfully! 

Belly Button In or Out: In. I don't have much of a baby bump yet. I guess I'll thank my height and wide hips for that??

What I miss: Laying on my stomach!!! Having energy.... zZz

What I'm looking forward to: More baby shopping!!

Oh Canada

Well, we made it to the coldest place on Earth Canada. I've been wanting to post since I first got here but we've been so busy, I haven't had time. We work 63! hours per wk so we really don 't have time to do much. For those of you who don't know, Brian Bonnett suckered recruited us to work in Canada selling alarm systems for the summer. It is hard work but we are having a good time and have made a lot of friends so far. There are good, and not so good things about Canada. Let me list the good and bad for you:

Things I Love About Canada:
  • They have Pepsi flavored Slupees!
  • You always take your shoes off when entering someones house... always!
  • All the different types of trees
  • Everybody except us recycles
  • The people are SO nice!
  • The sun goes down at 10:00 pm
  • So many beautiful parks!
Things I hate Don't Like So Much:
  • It's impossible to find a toilett seat cover in a public restroom
  • It is FREEZING, all the time.
  • Everything is in celsius so all I know is that it's cold but I never know the actual temp
  • Streets run N and S and Avenues run E and W... stupid confusing!
  • The eggs taste funny. You would think they would be the same, but the're not!
  • They don't have any bills smaller than a $5. Instead they have Toonies and Loonies which are $1 and $2 coins.
  • Mosquitos everywhere!
  • No mountains
  • It rains all the time
  • Everything is really expensive
This is definitely a good and fun experience but we will be excited to be back in to our home country. Oh and Danny got accepted to the American College of the Building Arts school in Charleston, South Carolina so we will be moving there in August, as soon as we get back! Yay!

This is our apartment and view from our apartment. We are 5 minutes from the mall!

Huge Accomplishment

We did it! The Moapa Valley Smokin Hot Cheetas did it! Saturday I ran in the Lake to Lake relay which went from Gunlock Reservoir to Sand Hollow Reservoir. We were on a team of 5 people and the course was 50 miles total so we each ran 10 miles. That may not sound like much to some people but it was a HUGE accomplishment for me. Tiffany and I have been running at 5 every morning to train for this and after Saturday it was all worth it.

Tiffany and I went up Friday night and then we met up with the rest of our team Saturday morning. The weather was really nice until we were halfway through and then the wind picked up and it was awful! We all had headwinds for our seconds legs which really mad it a lot tougher. I can hardly move today!!!

My next goal is a half marathon. I can't decide if I want to push and do the Salt Lake one next month or if I want to wait to do the Las Vegas marathon in November... we'll see... 

Gettin' Down!

Thank you to Grandma, Savannah and Kristy who made this month's Girls Night Out super fun!

We made salt dough ornaments, magnets, etc. after pizza and root beer. Funny how we all crowded around this table... we have some talented crafters in our little group (and some good dancers... read on :).

This is when we are riding in the awesome limousine that they rented... and we are still behaving ourselves.
(This was only half of the limo... it was HUGE)

Then things got a little CRAZY!!

This is us waiting in line for ice cream at LuvIts

It was a seriously FUN night! We get together every two months and take turns planning each time. My cousins and aunts and I have all had a really close relationship and I love that we can do stuff like this together. Makes for some good memories! Who says mormon girls can't have fun??

Probst Family Christmas Party

Our family has always gotten together for Thanksgiving but for Christmas each family would usually stay home and spend it with their own families so this year we decided to do a Probst Christmas Party. We had it at the ranch in Alamo and it was so fun! Aunt Lynn and Uncle Ron have really put a lot of work in to the ranch and everytime we go there is something added to it to make it even more fun. They completely re-did the little barn and made it super cute inside! Tonia and Ramondo cooked mexican food for us and then we went on a hay ride, sang songs, drank hot chocolate and then we went back in the barn for the white elephant gift exchange. The gift exchange was fun! One of the gifts had $100 bill in it so that added a little twist.

The hay ride!

No Probst party is complete without the Limbo! :)

Sleepover at Aunt Jess'

Well Danny is working on a job in Winnemucca, Nevada which is really sad but good for the work. He left December 2nd and will come home the 23rd...  wahoo! 2 wks down one to go! Anyways, since I was home alone last Friday I decided to give Kyle and Emily a date night and had a sleepover with the kids. (I don't have any pictures of little Presley because she was already in bed by the time I got my camera out.
Kylie and I made cookies...
...while Kade watched a movie. He wasn't very interested in making cookies (he was getting very tired).

Kylie's job was to put the sprinkles on. She went through an entire bottle of sprinkles with only 1 dozen cookies :)... as you can see, she did not miss a spot. haha

Kade fell asleep before me and Kylie so we stayed up and watched Cinderella.

It's so fun living so close to my neices and nephews. I was in the delivery room when Kade was born and watched him take his first breath. I can't believe how fast they grow. Kylie is such a sweetheart (with a tiny bit of sass). Emily said that Kylie will just randomly say "mom, I love Gecka" or "Gecka is so nice".

The kids love Danny and keep asking where he is since he's been gone. When Kade looked outside and saw the dog house that Danny made for Reggie he said "Uncle Danny is amazing!".. it was so cute.

Hopefully my next post will be a picture of me and Danny when he FINALLY gets home. It's our first Christmas together and haven't been able to do anything thogether. Although we are grateful for the work, it has been a little tough.

Girl Friends

Last night we went to the midnight showing of New Moon -I know, I know. It was SO much fun!  We made shirts last year for Twilight so we carried on the tradition and did it again this year. You can't see the back but on it we gave it a jersey look with the name 'Cullen' on it and the #17. We left at 8:30pm, got home at 3:00am, I got 3 hours of sleep and then got up at 6:00 to get ready for work. I got off work at 4:30pm and now me and Danny, Emily and Kyle are going back to Mesquite for dinner and... da da dum... New Moon - again! No, we are not fanatical Twilight fans but I think the boys secretly want to see it too so now we are going with them. :)

I just love these girls and I am so thankful for good friends! We try to go to a movie or have a girls' night once a month and we always have fun no matter what we do.

Halloween Party 2009

Friday night we had a family Halloween party at Aunt Kathy's house. This has turned in to a tradition and it is really fun to see everyone dressed up. Dusty has been busy with football and didn't have time to get a costume so he was a "nudist on strike" lol, my mom was Kelly Osbourne and my dad was Ozzy, Kyle and Emily were so funny as old people, Presley was the cuttest little chicken I have ever seen, Kade was a football player, and Kylie was the "cuttest costume award" as a little indian.

Getting Danny in a costume wasn't easy but it actually wan't as hard as I thought it would be :). and, NO! I am not really prego, I just stuffed my stomach for the costume. We are the hillbilly bride and groom.

My coustins Brandon (little boy), Lindsay (Batwoman), Grant (Richard Simmons), and Bryson (toothfairy lol)

Grandma was an "old bag" and Grandpa was "Captain Buttocks" (anyone who knows Grandpa would say that that is a perfect costume for him :)

My mom won the contest for the "hottest costume" and dad won "best costume"

Kyle and Emily's costumes were great!

Grandma, Mom, Aunt Lynn, Aunt Kathy

I am already looking forward to next year...

Meet Reggie

Danny has always wanted a bloodhound so while he was hunting, I surprised him with little Reggie. I found her in the KSL classifieds so last Tuesday after work, I drove to Richfield and got her. Danny was so excited! She is so cute and has so much personality. I will say though that having a puppy is a lot of work!
Kylie LOVES Reggie......but Reggie loves Presley
