Breakdancing and Birthdays!

Last week some of us girls got together to see Emily before she went home to Michigan. Laura made us a delicioius Chicken Tortilla soup ( I am still waiting for the recipe, by the way ) and the girls just got to hang out and talk! We had a great time and I really miss all my girls that are away from Utah right now! After we had dinner, we went to a breakdancing class at Laura's sister-in-law's gym. We had a great surprise...Gev from "So You Think You Can Dance" was teaching it!!! We all had a great time, even though I pretty much sucked it up dancing wise...I haven't danced in like 5 years, and I felt so uncoordinated! Thanks to Laura for inviting us!! We definately need to go it again!
Isn't this picture of me super flattering??!!

I also want to tell all of my friends and family members Happy Birthday!!! My brother had a great was his first day back in the MTC!! He was a little bummed about it, but he got lots of birthday packages from everyone! Also Happy Birthday to my sister-in-law April, my brother-in-law Blair, and my other sister-in-law Jessica!! I hope everyone's birthdays were and are great! Oh and last but not least, Happy Birthday to the Heidster! I love you and I hope you end of having your huge birthday bash so we can all have a good excuse to see eachother again!

Freedom of Choice...

My cousin blogged about this, and I feel that it is so important that I decided to blog about it also. I'm sorry if you don't agree with me on this subject, but it is I feel very strongly about it, hence the reason I am blogging about it!
Soon to be President Obama announced that one of the first things on his "to do" list is to sign the Freedom of Choice Act...allowing a few different types of abortions. This is what this new act would entale....

As most of you know, last night Obama made a public announcementthat he is going to sign the Freedom Of Choice Act, which will allow all types of abortions including partial birth abortions, also allowing babies who are born alive due to botched up late term abortions, to beset aside without any medical care or nourishment and left to die (mostof these babies have no medical problems and most of the ones that do,have things like cleft palates, club feet, things that are correctable,still they are murdered in the most cruel and inhuman way. They feel everything that is happening to them. There is more mercy for dogs thatare put to sleep) This Bill also will make it mandatory for doctors andnurses to perform this murderous act even if they do not want to do so.This act also allows under age teens to have an abortion, even partial birth abortions, without parental consent. Catholic Bishops have pleaded with Obama not to go ahead with thishorrible murder of innocent babies. They have also told Obama that if hepersists in signing this Bill which would require even CatholicHospitals to perform these acts of murder, they will have no choice butto close all Catholic Hospitals.
Please let us join with these courageous Bishops who will go to any length to change Obama's mind.Please take a minute to sign this statement and let our voices be heard.This is a great, informative website. You can click on the video of Obama's speech to the Planned Parenthood group where he promised that the first thing he would do if elected President would be to sign theFreedom Of Choice Act. He isn't even in the White House yet and he made a statement last night that he will go forward with his plans to signthis outrageous bill. He still can change his mind because the Billcannot be signed until he is actually the President.Please let your family and friends know about this Bill and ask them to also sign this petition. Even those who voted for Obama would notwant him to sign this Bill. May God have mercy on our country for the sake of the millions who would never agree with this Bill if they fullyunderstood all that it encompasses.

Please click on the web site below.It will take less than a minute of your time, doesn't cost anything and God will bless you for standing up for Him and His teachings.
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good people do nothing"

I know that our country is supposed to be free, and have the right to choose. But this is MURDER and murder is against the law! Why should we try to change that law? I have seen many families in such pain because their pregnancies have come to a screaching hault...their babies not surviving for unknown reasons. I have personally seen women who are 16, 20, 22 weeks pregnant deliver their dead babies in the preop room. I've seen their heartache and I can't even imagine what they are going through. Why on earth would we let this bill pass and let these unborn children's lives end so quickly?! Please join me in signing this petition.

It's a BOY!!!

We had the big ultrasound on Friday and found out that we will be having another crazy little boy! Dustin and I are so excited that Ko is getting a little brother! In fact, I think it made Dustin one proud daddy! Everything looks great with the baby...all the organs look good and he is the perfect size! We took Ko along with us and the whole time he looked at the screen he just kept saying "Baby! Baby!" I thought that maybe we had a breakthrough, but when we got home and I asked him what was in mommy's belly, he just pointed at it and said "Ball!" Then he tried to grab my boobs and said "Ball!" Oh great!! Well we will be working on the whole "baby in mommy's belly" thing, and I just don't really know what to say to him when he calls my boobs balls!
Anyway, we are super excited to be having another little boy, and if anyone has any ideas for names...feel free to throw them my way!

So I know it's been awhile....we've had a broken camera and a broken computer for the last month or so, but now we FINALLY have a working computer and a working camera!! So I will try to keep this post about December VERY short and sweet.

First off, Kohen has a new cousin!! Cru Gundersen arrived a little early, but safetly a few weeks ago. He was possibly the one of the smallest babies I've ever seen! He is a sweet little babe and his family is so excited he's finally here!


Christmas went by way too fast this year!! We made gingerbread houses, went on a carriage ride around temple square and got to hang out with our families. Kohen still doesn't understand the whole Santa thing yet, but he sure was excited that there were new toys waiting for him on Christmas morning! He got tons of tools (he loves helping his dad do projects around the house) and a dinosaur that he is obsessed with!!

Kohen had a great time with all his cousins and his aunts and uncles. My oldest brother and his wife were here from Idaho, and my little brother left for the MTC today, so we spent the weekend after Christmas with my family down in St. George. It was so nice to be in the sunny weather!!

So like I said before, Christmas came and went way too fast this year, but we had some great times with our families and I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
