I'm so excited that I got called to be Girl's Camp Leader again this year. Well, more that they never released me from last year. :) I told them as long as I'm not pregnant, I will be there. I'll probably still go if I'm not showing ;) The young women are such awesome people and I can't wait to get to know them even more! I'm glad I have a whole 6 months before camp so I'll actually feel prepared this year!

I also had my first Home, Family, Personal Enrichment night that I was leader for. It took a lot of planning and I'm going to have to do even more for this next one because now I "know what I'm doing." Sort of... I'm really putting a lot more into my callings now though. I know that there is something for me to learn and that's why I've been giving this calling. So I'm going to try my hardest to learn whatever that is, and hopefully, Heavenly Father will let me keep the calling a little while once I have learned that so I can have a little break before I have to learn something new!

I read a really great article today that is the theme for mutual for 2009. It's a talk by President Monson from 2005. It's on the website. Check it out! :) It made me cry, but that's pretty easy to do. :)

Just Wanted to Fill You In

Robby was offered a new job and decided to take it. He gave his 2 week notice and then his current job said, Ok, your last day is Friday, in 3 days. Yikes! We've been saving up for several months so we're totally fine but it came as a bit of a shock. Well, more for me because there were a few lay offs the day before that made it the final straw for Robby. Robby will have 3 full weeks at home to work on projects that he already has lined up and was worried about having enough time for them so we're pretty excited about that. I'm going to be working some extra overtime at my job to bring in some extra money just for padding and because Robby won't have to go in early to a job and stay longer and not get paid more for extra hours. I'm SOOOOO thankful we both have jobs and do not have some of the expenses that we would have if we had kids. It will push going to the doctor back a month but it's not the end of the world. I can't even imagine how someone that just got laid off and not have a job and how that would feel. Even this, I was terrified out of my mind and we have plenty of money to cover the bills and a job that will start soon. I'm so grateful for everything we have and for the blessings we haven't gotten yet but that I know are waiting for us. :)

Question for you all...

I was wondering if anyone knows a good Infertility Specialist in Arizona. I've been to ARMS and liked it but I didn't love it so I don't think I'm going to go back. I have a recommendation from Fertility Treatment Center but I was hoping to get a few more recommendations. If you know someone who had a good experience with a Reproductive Endocrinologist, let me know! Or if someone has gone to a regular obgyn to get treatments done, then the doctors name. It's not something most people talk about so any help would be greatly appreciated! :) I'm also looking for an obgyn for when I get pregnant. :) Thanks everyone!

Time Flies

Has it really been 2 weeks since my last post? Wow almost 3 weeks! Time is flying by! Christmas is around the corner. It's going to be our first Christmas by ourselves. I'm really excited. I love spending time with family but we haven't had a Christmas in our home yet. I'm looking to buy a new Christmas tree (artificial) because the hand me down one we have in starting to look a little sad. Ok so it was sad when we got it and now most of the lights don't work. :) Robby and I are both working a lot. We've been lucky enough to be able to buy some fun toys to play with. We both got iPhones which is probably one of the best inventions ever. It keeps me sane at work! :) On really boring days I can watch movies and the time passes much quicker. Robby got a PS3 and it's been fun to watch movies in bluray. There is a difference. It's not huge but it's still fun to watch. We also just bought a camera. It's a digital slr camera and I'm super excited. It's my Christmas present. Every year we've been married we've gotten ourselves a big present for Christmas but usually they are geared towards Robby. :) (XBOX 360, giant tv-though I enjoy that too) This year it was my turn and I wanted a camera. The digital camera we have now is 4 years old this Christmas and a little sad. Our new one... is the Canon XSi. It's incredible! :) It should be arriving this week some time and I can't wait to go take some pictures of my two favorite munchkins, David and Erik. The presents set us back on our debt pay off timeline but I will definitely be using this camera for a while and wanted one when we had our kids anyways. Hopefully it will help us document our lives a little better too! :) Insurance kicks in starting January 1st so I'm waiting for the ok from Robby to make my appointment to start treatments. We're still debating which treatment to start first. He's routing for the cheapest and I'm routing for the more effective. I guess we'll just have to see what the doctor thinks...
