Long time

It's been a couple of weeks so.....

Craig and I already opened our presents from each other. We are bad and can't wait until Christmas. Last year was early too. He came home from shopping and I told him that if he just gave them to me know, he would have to wrap them. This year... he had his mom wrap my present and it was lying of the floor (because I don't have enough energy this year to fight Craig about a Christmas tree) and I guessed what it was. Then he wanted me to open it. It was a Pink 22. I was so excited. I haven't got pictures yet but when I do. It is soooooo cool lookin'. As soon and the ground freezes we are going shooting!!

The baby is doing great. I can feel him move all over the place. During church he likes to kick at my ribs. It doesn't feel good. I haven't thrown up in awhile. But now I have heartburn. If not one thing something else. I am a pro- ugly prego pants. They are wonderful even though they are utterly ugly. No buttons, zippers or any thing else that can get in my way of going to the bathroom, which I do alot! Thanks to everyone that has given me clothes!

The family is doing great! Linda (Craig's mom) has made her Christmas chocolates!! (chocolate gives me heartburn the worst, but I don't care.) Tonia's doctor said that she could have the baby anytime! Holy Cow! Time flies when you are having fun. Jenny and Hal are coming for Christmas so we can see their very cute kids. Darcia's babies are sooo cute and growing like crazy.

Luke (on the left) looks like Darcia. I was over there on Saturday and Cole was smiling and laughing when we were playing. They are family so I have bragging rights! Anna is enjoying her first finals week. When she came home for Thanksgiving she broke her finger. It is the funnest story ever. I die laughing every time I think about it. She is now laughing too so it is okay. Craig is doing finals also. He thinks life is ruff! And we are very excited to here from Terry and Shaun on Christmas.

Life couldn't be better right now! Merry Christmas to all!

It's a Boy!!!

We found out on Tuesday that I am having a Boy. Degan Montgomery Savage! He weights 15 oz and his heart beat is 147. He didn't quite cooperate during the ultra sound. I have to go back on Monday and get some more pictures taken of his feet. Feet can tell alot about the health of the baby. The doctor said that he has really long fingers and long toes. That is a Savage Trait. He has a distinct nose. I am not sure where that came from. We are very excited. I don't get to have pink too-toos, or bows. I went shopping Friday morning and found some really cute boy things!

Okay, So I will give it to Jeri. I did like the movie. It was a lot better than I expected. Even though we went at 9:15 pm and I have pee though the most intense part. I was not a Edward lover. But the actor did great. The inside humor was so funny. I think that you would have to read the book to understand it fully. And kudos to all the men that went with you wives. I think that Craig would like it if he could get past the part it is a girl book. I have heard a lot of reviews from people that went and watched it. So here is my review. It was a good tasteful movie. You have to remember that it is a vampire move and they are of the devil. But HOT! There was no swearing, or sexual scenes. The movie was a little different than that book and I think I liked it that way. And Jacob needs to cut his hair! Now I am torn between Movie Edward and my Jacob. Two thumbs up for the movie.

Great Friends

Craig and I are grateful for the friends in our lives. Yesterday it was Jeri and Scott's 3rd anniversary. They invited us to go with them to the temple with them. It was wonderful! Happy Anniversary JERI AND SCOTT. We also ate at Ruby River Steakhouse. I don't recommend it to anyone. Our server did tell us that desert was on him and then he didn't give us any. Rude. You can not get a pregnant woman's hopes up like that and shut them down. It is very hurtful! Also to my Mom. She bought me some Christmas plates. I can't wait to see them!!!

I went to my 3rd appointment. I have gain a 1/2 pound. The babies heart beat is 140. The doctor said that everything is great!!! I go back on the 25th for the ultrasound. Craig and I have talked about names. Nothing is set in stone, but if it is a boy.... Degan Montgomery and if it is a girl.... Addison Marie. We'll just have to see.

Halloween it Tomorrow!!!!!!

For everyone that doesn't know, HALLOWEEN is my favorite holiday. This year, my husband, the grinch that stole Dian's HALLOWEEN wouldn't let me decorate my house. So I had to partake in others decorations. Jeri's house is great. I don't think that you can walk through the door with out being attacked by spiders or their webs. My moms house looks great now! We decorated it last weekend. We also found out that HALLOWEEN decorations are not kid proof. She has some blocks that spell out BOO. I think that at one time or another Darcia's boys all threw and got them thrown at their heads! Another good house is Billy Short's house ( Jeri's mom). It looks great! Ghosts, witchs and pumpkins all over. Here is a picture from last year at our work HALLOWEEN party. I was a Cowboy! I used all of Craig's stuff. Just to let you know I wore his pants! Other great things about this time of year is..... ooww pumpkin icecream, pie and anything elese pumpkin. I love it!!! The colors of outside. They are so pretty. There were some kids in our year yesterday playing in our leaves. I think that we are the only one's that haven't raked up our leaves. And there are tons of them. Craig said that the kids were only raking them to jump in them. Hello duh!!! Thats the best part! The reds, oranges and yellows are beautiful! OH ya another great thing is...... MY BIRTHDAY!!!! I am going to be 23 tomorrow. I can't believe it. I swear it was just last year that I cried over turning 19. Now I am 23. I am growing up! And we are eating pizza!!!!! It is not Pizza Hut, Darcia is making homemade!! She wont take her 5 boys out to dinner. I think that when I am 50 I will still want pizza for my birthday dinner. It's the best!! This is the most wonderful time of the year!!!!

2nd appointment

I had my second baby appointment on Monday. Everything is going great! I lost 5 pounds from the last appointment. My doctor really didn’t like that. We heard the heart beat. It was 160. The baby was moving all over the place. It wasn’t very long. I did schedule my next appointment and my 2nd ultrasound for November 25th. We will hopefully know what it is before Thanksgiving!

That sister of mine.... Tonia!

Tonia is a little sneak! She has been pregnant for 5 months and not told any body. Everybody thought that it would be that way. My mother had us all worried that there were some problems and in the end she was just pregnant. I am excited for them. She is having a girl. Her name is Elizabeth Vietta Buhrig. She is due in February. So with in a year all of us sisters that could and should have a baby will have. This is a pretty exciting time for my parents. There family is growing!!

What a rainy weekend!

It all started Friday night, Craig was on the chain gang at the Emmett Football game. So me and Erin went to the game. I did get a little wet and the wind was blowing too. It was Erin’s birthday so after the game we went to La Costa for dinner. It was a late dinner! I just ate the chips and salsa. And I didn’t throw it up! Ya!!!!
My first year doing the women’s fitness walk was one to remember. I had convinced my Mother-in-law to do it with me. So Saturday morning at 7:00 we left for Boise. We could see lightening and it poured on us on the way over. But went on, that was our first mistake! When we parked, Jeri called me to see where we were. She told me it was barely sprinkling at the start line. That was huge lie. When we got there, she and every one else was soaking wet. I walked up hill for 3.1 miles very wet. We finished, between 1:04 and 1:05. If you can see the video we are there! We got some goodies and headed for the car. I got really cold on the way home. I took a hot shower and wanted to sleep. Craig and Scott planned a BSU football party. Instead of watching the game or sleeping through it, I went to Nampa shopping with Jeri. I forgot how much fun shopping with Jeri is. She can’t make up her mind on anything!!!! At 7:00 we had our WII Party!! I made it til about 9:30. Then I crashed on Jeri’s couch. But before I did, I rocked out to dance revaluation and won the first round of the bowling game!!!! I slept as long as I could on Sunday. Went to Church with my parents and at dinner at Craig’s parents house. Then we went to Rita’s house for Cheese cake for Erin’s birthday!! It was good!

Cat out of the Bag!

I think that the cat is out of the bag. So now is as good as time and any to announce that Craig and I are going to have baby! We are very excited. I am 10 weeks along. On Monday we went to the doctor and everything is great. She told Craig that I am perfect. I told him not to forget it, but I think that he already did. I have been nauseated all day long and can’t wait for that to go away. On Tuesday we had an ultra sound and not the kind that Jeri said that I was going to have. I think she says things just to make me nervous. It was a normal ultra sound. We saw the baby. Or what is supposed to be the baby. We got to here the heart beat. It was so exciting for me I couldn’t hold it in any more! April 10th is my due date! I am hopping for a girl. There are so many boys in the family, it is time for a girl. And Dessa needs a girl cousin. Craig wants a boy, probably just because he is a boy. I will let you know as soon as something happens.

Life is crazy!

I know that I am not that busy at work, but beyond work I am. Craig started school a week ago from Monday. He is driving all over the place. To class, fixing someone’s garage door, back to class and home. We have been going to Emmett every weekend to help there. My Mom and I have been canning like crazy. In the past two weekends we have bottle soup, salsa, tomato juice, sweet and sour sauce and enchilada sauce. Give or take 175 pint jars and 30 quarts. My Mom has done 50 or more quarts of salsa for Darcia. We aren’t done yet. Since Darcia just had her babies and doesn’t have time to can her self we are trying to do all she needs too. Last year Rachel Brown/ Swansen gave my Mom some home made enchilada sauce and she love it. When she called for recipe Rachel said well this is the main ingredients but we just added until liked it. So we tried and I think that it turned out good. My Mom’s garden was good this year, except for the peppers. Who knows what happened to them. And she would have pumpkins if she didn’t kill them with spray. I planted them twice too. She has lots of watermelon and cantaloupe. They taste great! Life is great!

Harvest Time

Tomatoes are on! This past weekend I made 28 pints of salsa and 31 pints of tomato soup. Yummmmm! My food storage is building. We have a lot more to do. Next week we are making Sweet and Sour sauce. It is so good. I can’t wait I am all out. Peaches will be on September 5th and I think that my Mom’s apples are ripening to make apple pie filling. It’s the best! Tis the season for Harvest.

Darcia had her babies!

Darcia had her babies Saturday morning. They are the cutest things. Luke Allen was 6 lb 11 oz, and Cole Lewis was 5 lb 1 oz. I think that is how the spelling is but I am not sure. Darcia came home from the hospital yesterday. She is really tired. Poor girl. The babies hopefully will come home early next week. I am holding Cole. They have dark hair. Maybe they will look more like Mom than the rest of them.
As for the Book, I finished! That lady has a wild imagination. I don't want to ruin it for others who haven't read it.

The Last Book

I have just starting the Last Book. I preorded it, but it went to my Mom's house and she got hold of it first. I have a hard time putting down at night. I never would have imaged what was going to happen. CRAZY!

Life in a City

I know that I have lived most of my life in Emmett, and not just in Emmett, but out side of it, in the middle of no where. Where it was peacefull and quite. In Pocatello, we lived by the railroad tracks. And every night we would here the cars smashing together. And when the train would move our whole house would shake. This is worse. We are right next to the freeway. All night long, all day long cars, cars and more cars. We have to have our windows open so we don't roast. Just like the trains I am sure that we will get used to it. But man it sucks. We are saving a lot on gas. I ride my bike to work everyday. It's not too bad. My work is really close. My butt hurts. I thought that I had enough padding down there, but I don't. My house is still a mess. Boxes every where. We are working on it. A little at a time!

We're Moving

We have found a place in Boise to move to. We are moving this weekend. I know it is fast but oh well. It is a really nice town house, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Just like Jeri said it is a bitter sweet thing. We are finally moving out of my parents house, I don't have drive over the hill anymore. It is so close that I don't even have to drive. But our friends and family are in Emmett. We will miss you even though we are only in Boise. Craig can't play basketball every other day anymore. Dang it. Just silly things like that! Craig is still going to work for my dad on the weekends, so we will be in Emmett a lot!

My new hobbie!

About 3 weeks ago, Craig and I went up to Cascade and got 3 old dressers from my cousin's other grandma's house. Here are the before pictures. We just finished refinishing them. It was lots of hard work. The big tall one we just washed and painted black. The mirror on that one was locked when we got it. My dad popped it open. It takes a old key to open it. We have tried like 4 or 5 keys and non of them work. The other two we stripped the varnish and stain and restained them a mix of mahogany and cherry. I really wanted it mahogany. My mom had a little mahogany, but not enough to do it all, and some cherry. So we mixed it and made our own color. The stripper stuff we used, I highly recommend it. It was called "Stripper" Ace brand. It did wonders! We used mineral spirits to wash them after the stripper stuff. It was lots of fun to do it. I really wanted a new bedroom set, so now I do, almost. Next I am looking for a head board and foot board that I can refinish to match! I will post the finished pictures soon.

My kind of camping!

Friday after work Craig and I went with Jeri and Scott and Bransen and Alisa and Jeremy up the Scott's family cabin. It is a really nice cabin up by cascade lake. They have lake front access walking distance from the cabin. We left around 6, (we were a little late because of Craig) and got up there a little after 8. Bransen got car sick on the ride up so we had to stop at the Cougar Mountain Lodge. I was glad to stop. I was getting a little car sick too. Jeremy and Alisa were about a half hour behind us. That night we just talked and played games. Alisa gets a little loopy when she gets tired. Saturday night we ate breakfast and was out on the lake about 10:30. We first went on a little boat ride to see Tamarack and it's beach front. There weren't many boats out. We spent the next 4 hours wakeboarding, skiing, and tubing. It was lots of fun. I tried to get Jeri to tube but she wouldn't. Scott said that his baby would come out with a stutter. Jeremy and Alisa left about 2. Craig and I battled it out on the tubes. I think the tubes won. At about 3 we loaded the boat and headed back to the cabin. We got cleaned up and went to Ice cream Alley in McCall. I got Lemon Pie Shake. It was so big, but sooo good. Saturday night Craig and Scott made us a camp fire like real boy scouts! We roasted Nathan's hot dogs and brots and marshmellows for smores. Mmmm! Sunday morning I woke up unable to move. I was so sore, from working muscles that I wasn't sure that I had and from being sun burnt. I think we all got sun burns. Jeri got it the worst. But we all got it pretty good! It was a great little weekend get a way. We had a great time. Brandsen was such a good baby the whole time. He is a talked just like his mommy!

This blogging this is kinda fun. I get to think of all the things that I have done and share them with you. Today I am going to talk about books. And especially the “Twilight” series. I have read the first 3 books and have pre-ordered the 4th book. I am a Jacob lover! Reading the 3rd book made like Edward a little more. But for a long time I didn’t like him at all. He was all wrong for her. Jacob, now he is the one. In my mind he is just gorgeous. The looks, the muscles, and the fun, he has it all. She can also have a life with him. Have children, be with her parents ect. I can’t wait to read the 4th one to see which one she goes with. At this point I want her to go with Jacob, but I won’t die if she goes with Edward.

Because of Jeri Gurney, I have started my blog. She loves it and thinks that I will love it as well. My life is good, but not that exciting. So if I talk about my family and friends it’s because I live vicariously through them. Craig and I live with my parents and we are trying to find a place to live in Boise. Southwestern part of Boise is where we are looking. Craig has is own business, fixing garage doors. He really does like it. Keeps him busy and bring in some money while he is going to school. Summer has gone by so fast. School starts in a month. We just came back from visiting Craig’s grandparents in Priest River Idaho. It’s way up north! We had a great time. Most of his Aunts and Uncles were there. I still haven’t met all of his cousins. They live right on the river. It is a beautiful spot to live, but lots of mosquitoes, Nasty little buggers. We drove up on Hwy 95, lots of green rolling hills and fields. We came home on the freeway, where there is nothing to look at, nothing but desert. It was nice to have a break from work. I was able to sleep in for 4 days in a row. I work at the Farm Bureau Insurance Company Claims office in Boise. When we moved back to Boise, I transferred offices and jobs. I originally started at Farm Bureau in May 2006 in the Finance Office. Now 2 years later I am in Boise in the Claims department. It is a great company to work for, great benefits. Our life couldn’t be better right now!

Christmas 2007
