Hot DOG!!

So I can't have her yet, but when we move to Gooding this little beauty will be waiting to come along!!! We haven't decided on a name yet, but I think she is the sweetest puppy ever!! I can't wait to go play with her tomorrow night (at which time I will probably take more pictures) but for now I can only have another great reason to be so excited for the end of this semester!
She's a mix of mutt... but pretty much an Australian Sheppard and border collie mix

What an adorable little face!! I'm gonna hve a hard time saying no to this! :)
This is a little bit random... but on Saturday Me n Nancy and Lindy went to the craft fair in Minidoka. I had such a great day! We shopped around, grabbed some lunch, and even stopped by a punkin patch on the way home! It was an awesome day! This is what I decided to get... I had great ambitions to make one of these, but I know that by the time I got around to it, it never would have looked this cute and I never would have been able to make it look like this for what I actually paid for it :)

Life is good today!

Life is Good!!! I have truly been blessed with a good life! I'm sealed to my best friend, expecting a baby in February, moving to the town I want to settle down in, and enjoying every minute of life! I can't be more grateful to be so close to our families and be blessed with such great circumstances!
I don't got my toes in the water, or the sand, but life is good today!!

ER Trip (continued from below)

So this blog is continued from the below one. I wrote the first one late last night and this morning it wasn't cooperating to let me finish it. So this is the end, read the other one first.

I left off talking about JoAnna and her mood swings and kleenex stuffed nose. So to help lighten the mood, Jon decided to make us all laugh.
(see the below pictures of the turkey teasing the turkey :)
Jon being funny...
Our View :) At first JoAnna didn't notice that Jon was copying her
(which made it that much funnier)
That's right. He knows he's funny!
And Finally!!! We got to go home!!! This was the most exciting part of the whole hospital trip! Thanks to everyone who called (or facebooked) good wishes! We sure love and appreciate you all! Our patient is recovering very well!

Trip to the ER

On Saturday me n Stew went to Gooding to look for some place to rent. We had pretty shotty luck (of course) but it was still good to get out of Twin for awhile. Around noon Stewart started having some pains in his side. At first he thought it was just gas, but by that night he was hurting pretty bad. So I took him to the Emergency Room in Twin Falls. We got to the hospital at about 8:45 on Saturday night. After watching many bleeding and non-breathing patients be emitted before us, we finally got in to see a doctor. He figured for sure it was appendicitis, but had to have the surgeon's opinion too. The surgeon was in another apendectimy surgery, so we waiting for him for another 45 minutes. At about 12:30 he came in, push around on Stewart's sore side and was pretty sure about appendecitis. So he called his team back into the hospital and Stew went under the knife at about one-thirty. The surgery (which was the fifth appendectamy of the evening) took about an hour and a half. So by the time Stewart was wheeled into his room and they let me in to see him it was about three in the morning. Our nurse was VERY energetic. She kept us very well informed on what was going on around us, and liked to chit chat about EVERYTHING. She had to do the 1,000 questions thing and Stew was still kinda out of it so I started answering her questions (not like we hadn't answered them a million times already). When Stew woke up he started answering some by himself. It was too cute, the question was "do you have any scars we should know about" (thinking like if he has a huge scar across his chest... what from?) Well Stewart kinda looked around at himself and was kinda slow about it and said, "well, I do have a little one on my thumb". It was priceless!!

So... the nurses started to thin out at about five thirty and only came in every 20 minutes. So as Stewart was snoring and his machines were beeping and nurses were chit chatting, I managed to get a good hour and a half of sleep in the recliner they wheeled in for me. At about six every time a nurse came in they would say "did you know it's snowing??? Look out the window, it's really snowing!" I think it was because Stewart was under the weather so the weather was under... (if that makes sense :).

Well we were stuck in the hospital till about four oclock on Sunday. We did get pretty lucky though. We didn't have to have a full-time roommate. At about ten they wheeled an old guy in to share the room and for awhile it was pretty busy with doctors in and out to see him. He needed hip surgery and was wheeled outta our room after a short while. Just in time too, cause my family came to visit us. They brought us a picnic basket full of sanwiches and good things to eat (very much needed and appreciated :) So we spent the afternoon watching a combination of football and general conference. Stewart and Jon loved having their own little "football party" and I sure enjoyed having some company.

Stewart sleeping with his little doggy JoAnna gave him.
My family watching hospital room conference :)
And somehowJon still managed to fit a nap into the last conference session :)
Stew was such a good sport. He let the doggie sit on his head the whole time :)
JoAnna was so funny. She would be happy then grumpy then happy then grumpy. She apparantly had some sort of runny nose problem and kept a kleenex shoved up there almost the whole time. It was pretty cute. (see the next blog for the rest of this funny story).


So... A LOT has happened within the past week! I feel like I have been busier (and tireder) than ever before in my life! But it's all good. So to start out my long list of blogs, I'm going to start with Canning! I went over to Gooding last Thursday and canned with my mom and sister (and Jon too :) My Grandpa Funk had tons of Peaches on his trees so we decided to can like crazy. My mom was the one who really kept the whole process going. I don't know how she does so many things at once... she's pretty much my hero! Most of the day I peeled and cut peaches. It was kinda an odd thing, it felt like I was peeling and cutting and all of a sudden there were canned peaches on the counter next to me! Like A Miracle! :) My Mom really is amazing.
We made a butt-load of Peaches and a ton of peach Jam too.
(and don't even ask me to define and/or differentiate between butt-load and ton ;)

My Mom being Awesome.
JoAnna Shakin the sugar in the Jars (my favorite job)
And Jon even BBQed us some Hamburgers for Lunch!

So on Wednesday after finding out it was a girl, we went to the fabric store to get some fabric (of course). I am going to make some curtains for my changing table and a crib ruffle to match. While we were there my mom saw this adorable fabric and got enough to make a big baby blanket! She was just so excited! What a cute mom! She's gonna be the best Grandma!! (and look how happy she still is after canning all day!!! AMAZING!)
