New Niece

So, the title says it all. My sister had her baby today. Kayleigh Anne Sayer, though I am not sure that is how they are spelling her first name, was born at 2:04 p.m. and weighed 7 lbs. 4 oz. Mom and baby are doing fine. In the next couple of weeks, I am sure that I am going to be getting pictures that I can post, but we are all pretty excited.

Starry Night

At the beginning of the summer, with all the confusion that can come into someone's life, some friends decided that they were going to build a cardboard box and live out of that box. I got in on the idea and was excited for the construction. However, in August, I moved and the house had still not been built.
Over the next month, my friends took action. They went dumpster diving for cardboard and they built a cardboard house. Last weekend, I decided to go home for the funeral of a friend's grandpa. I was going to come Friday night and leave Saturday sometime after the funeral. When I told my friend that I was going to be in town, she informed me that they were going to be sleeping in the cardboard box house that weekend. I was so excited.
Here is where I would post a picture of the house, but I keep forgetting to bring my camera with me when I have computer access. We spent the night in that house. The weather was great and it was a beautiful night. Half way through the night, part of the box fell down. By the time we woke up the next morning, another part of the box was hanging over us, threatening to fall.
It was a fun experience and I grateful for the one night I had of sleeping under the stars.

What To Say???

I was talking to my mom yesterday and she mentioned that I have not updated my blog in a while, so I have decided to do so today. Here are the important things that have happened this last little while.

Labor Day Weekend was great. I was able to spend some time with friends and learned that I really want to try river surfing. If I would have had the right clothes, I would have done that. What is it? We went to Blackfoot, to an area of a river their with some small rapids and took foam boards. You put yourself in the rapid and see how long you can stay there. It looks like fun! I was also able to go the Eastern Idaho State Fair and spend some much needed time with a friend.

I went to the temple. For some reason, I kept stalling and was having a hard time leaving. When I got to the temple, I found out that I was going to be in a Spanish session. !Que Divertido! I needed that so much and it was an amazing reminder of the wonderful spirits of the hispanic people.

Saturday was my mom's birthday. I was not home, but I did get to talk to her on the phone. I love you mom and hope that your birthday was wonderful. It was great talking to you.

I was able to attend my ward for the second time. I was actually given a visiting teaching route already. I also received two callings yesterday. Though I was not exactly sure how I felt about them at first, I am excited for these new callings. I was talking with a friend who put it best. These callings will get me out there and make me meet new people. I am so lucky for good friends.

Just because it seems random to only have four things on a list, I added a number five. I wanted to thank all of you for you friendship. My life is not the most exciting thing, but it is fun for me to write about things. I have been doing a lot of reflecting lately on different things. I am truly so blessed. Thank you all for everything you do. You are all great!
