Wedding Bells...

Corey's brother, Jacob, got married this last Friday! It was really fun to be there! Here we are out side of the temple. I don't know if you can tell from my face, but it was cold!
And here is the happy couple! YAY for newlyweds! Corey and I (mostly me) we kind of sad to think that we aren't the newlyweds in the family anymore. but we are sure happy for them!

Here are the Ostler siblings, oldest to youngest. its kind of funny how they go short to taller to tallest, to shorter, to shortest! and of course Corey is making a face. HAHAHA!

Here are all the Bridesmaids with the Bride!

Here is a fun little picture, we were all making a "sassy" pose. Corey got a little shot of me.

The First Day!

We had the opportunity to do a session at the Draper Temple THE FIRST DAY it was open! that was awesome! Corey's brother, Jacob, is getting married this Friday and his fiancee was going through for the first time. It was really fun to see Marina take it all in and experience that! Her mom was also able to come all the way from Russia! I don't really speak russian but from the little that we are able to communicate I really like her.

Here is everyone that was able to attend minus a friend of Marina's and Corey's sister Carina (yeah that's going to get confusing) and her husband Stephan. L-R... Christine and Blake (Corey's parents) Grandma Ostler, Grandpa Edwards, Grandma Edwards, Andrea, Marina's mom Alexandra, Corey, Me, Marina, and Jacob

I just had to get a picture of Corey and I at the temple!

P.S. Pictures from the wedding to come...

Guilty Pleasure

I love Dancing with the Stars! And the only problem I see with this is that my list of shows is just getting bigger and bigger. Not always the best, but this one I will watch and totally not feel bad about!
Corey is actually getting into it too which I love because he doesn't mind me watching. I do have to say though I could have a very detailed conversation about this to who ever may bring it up so be prepared.
But I do want to just make a few observations of what I have seen...
1. Shawn Johnson should win! because...
- she is GOOD!
- she is the youngest and smallest to ever be on so how cool would that be?!
- and she can pick up the routines and execute them like a professional!
2. They really need to stop giving Jonathan Roberts the lame partners! he is so good, yet he is always on of the first to leave.
3. I totally want Melissa Rycroft off the show! I think she is just using her "heartbreak" to her full advantage. SHE IS NOT A STAR!!! but America loves her right now so of course she is going to go far. And in my personal opinion, Jason (the bachelor) just needed to follow his heart and go with who he loved. I don't think he is a jerk at all but that is how America and tabloids portray him.
Anyway, sorry, I just have some opinions about the show. and those are just a few. but I just thought I would share some... Thanks!

Boy, Girl? Girl, Boy?

For the last little while I have been having some thoughts...

For I don't know how long I knew that when I eventually had kids, I was hoping for a boy first. Not because of any disliking for girls its just, growing up in the family I did... where if you added everyone up there were 12 of us and out of the 10 still living, there was only one boy. So it is more of, "a boy would be nice."
Well anyway on with my thought...
Anyway so when I found out that I was pregnant, my first reaction was "I HOPE ITS A BOY!" And hearing the things you do, the advice (wanted and unwanted), and the old wives tales, and this, that, and the other. You start hearing about different ways you can tell before the actual ultrasound.
I have had dreams that I was having a boy so I just credited it to "intuition." but one of those old wives tales that I have heard is how a boy's heart beat tends to be slower than a girls. Well anyone who has or is having a baby can tell you that the average heart rate is between 120 and 180 beats per minute. and the highest my baby has been at is 162 and has gone down to 138 since then.
Naturally this would thrill someone who is really hoping for a boy, but with not being able to know for at least another 2 weeks, I am trying not to get my hopes up for anything.
And before anyone thinks that I would be a bad mother if I got a girl, I just want to clear the air that I have taken that into deep consideration. and I know, I mean KNOW that I will be very happy with a girl if that is what the Lord has decided for us.
I would say that for about the last week to week and a half it has truly been on my mind. I feel that the Lord has softened my heart so much to the thought of having a girl that right now, (and I don't know if this will change) but right now I truly couldn't tell you what I am hoping for. I know that I will love this baby more than I can even comprehend right now! This baby will be a part of me and a part of Corey, the most important person in my life! How much of a gift is that?!
So anyway I don't know if anyone else has experienced this same thing but I am truly thankful for this lesson!

Heaven on Earth...

Last night Corey and I were able to go to the Draper Temple open house along with his family. The temple was absolutely beautiful! The chandeliers, the wood, and the art work was truly amazing. I feel so privileged to have these temples so close to us!

I would have to say that one of my favorite parts of the whole experience was watching members answer non-member's questions. This was an amazing missionary experience even for me! I didn't teach anyone, but my testimony was certainly strengthened my the reverence and the majesty of this wonderful place. I hope everyone that wants to, has the chance to go through and partake in this special experience.

15 Weeks!

Okay so sorry about no smile or anything. It was early. But today marks 15 weeks for my pregnancy! I have a little something but I think I notice it more than anyone else. And I do have to say it is starting to feel crammed in my tummy. I can only wait to see what it is going to feel like in a couple months! The morning sickness is starting to go away but I do still have somedays that are hard to get through. and I have come to hate brushing my teeth, that always triggers my gag reflex! I am just glad I am over the worst of being sick! I am very thankful for that!

YAY! We are starting a blog. I tend to be one of the last to start anything like facebook, myspace etc. but now we have a blog!

The Court Jester starring Danny Kaye! kind of lame, but I have that right! anyway I will do my best at keeping everything up to date and putting up lots of pictures but as for right now, enjoy!
