Busy-ness...Is this a word?

Here's the randomness and busy-ness at our house this week:

Julia... got 6 immunizations Tuesday- 5 of them were shots :-( teething already, loves to cover her parents and guests in slobber and couldn't be anymore sweet and precious!!!

I had a meeting at work this afternoon for our new computer charting that we start in the middle of October. It will be a lot of fun (and a lot faster) to use once I get into the hang of it,


...tomorrow's the day...the day I start work again.
I WILL be OK! (that's what I keep repeating to myself...trying to convince myself of it :-)
I am so thankful to have God in my life, don't know what I would do without him.

We have cousins coming from Wyoming this weekend and a niece that'll be born tomorrow morning. :-)
Looking forward to fun evenings when I get off work the next couple days.

And here's my favorite part...although I don't know why...

Jeremy's work week has consisted of the guys wanting to knock over a port-o-jon with the van at their job site. HAHA, I would LOVE to see that. That thought has brought me so much laughter and fun this week!

Hope you all are having a lovely week!

Work Work Go Away...

So I have to go back to work a week from this coming Friday.
Full time.
Not looking forward to it.
Having mini emotional melt downs every now and then about leaving my baby.
Would you pray for me?
I know that "This too shall pass" and life will become normal once I get into a routine but right now my heart is heavy and it feels like it's breaking.
Also very overwhelmed about working with lack of sleep...Julia's not sleeping through the night yet.

I am so incredibly Thankful for my mom...that she can watch Julia for us.
Don't know what I'd do without her.
And Jeremy helps so much.
Bless Them!

Dedication Smiles

Julia was dedicated this past Sunday. Here's a few pictures from that day.

Sweet Precious Feet! I LOVE these crocheted booties!
Enjoying time with GrammieThis is probably the best picture to sum up the day. Jeremy had to act a little goofy but we were able to catch this beautiful smile on camera! Love it so much!

Black Hills...But they didn't look black

This was engraved in pillars displaying flags from every country down the walkway to the Mount Rushmore Heads. They had all the states engraved (one on each side of the pillars) in alphabetical order.

While Mom, Dad and Marla watch Julia, Jeremy and I took a hike around Mount Rushmore. This was a view through a cave below George.

Here's Lincoln. All those rocks below the heads are part of the mountain that were blasted off during it's making.

This is me in the elevator after our hike, I was about to die. Jeremy thought there was something wrong with me. Ha Ha

I LOVE wax figures, always have. I've been just as obsessed with them as I have pregnant women! We visited the National Presidential Wax Museum while we were in Keystone (Mount Rushmore) This is George Washington.

This is Abe Lincoln before this beard.

Mr. Bush Man

Jeremy and I got to take a helicopter ride around Mount Rushmore. This was the view. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! Jeremy thought it was worth $65.00 a person, but I thought I paid those jokers $65.00 to make me sicker then a dog.

This is an old Miners building/shaft from the 1800's that we saw from the helicopter.

Don't drink and drive folks. I don't know if this person was, but it sure looked like it. This car was at the entrance/exit of our hotel the morning we left Keystone. Hilarious!

Julia's First...

Visit with her great-grandparents in North Dakota. Great Grandma Mable seemed to have a hay day with a baby in the house. It was great to see Jeremy's Aunts and Uncles too! Thanks for letting us come visit!... picture with daddy, great grandma Mable and great grandpa Duane...
...picture with George, Thomas, Teddy and Abe :-)
...visit to Mount Rushmore, absolutely beautiful!
We were all completely amazed at how the heads were carved...and not one man killed during those 14 years!
