I should be doing my Homework, but I'm not!

Degan was a pumkin for Halloween. He was so cute. Once I got the camera out he started to attack me.
See for our family pictures.

My life is upside down.... and I love it!

Bronco GAME DAY!

Tomorrow it has been one month that I have been home with Degan. Wow, how did I get anything done when I went to work everyday. Life is great. I am busy as ever and get to see Degan grow up. The past month, we have moved into our house. It is wonderful. We have put a lot of work into it (and money) but I love it. The inside is mostly done. I just have to put things away and pictures up on the wall. Outside is another story. We had Steve (Craig’s dad) cut 2 very big trees down and one of the stumps is up. It is huge. I am not really sure what we are supposed to do with it. No grass yet, but hopefully this weekend we will plant some parts of the yard. Craig has been working out of town the past couple weeks. He is home now and working hard!

Degan is growing like crazy. It is so fun to be home with him. I can clean my house everyday and no one would notice because of him. I up his toys away while he is sleeping and put them right back on the ground where I found them when he wakes up. He doesn’t sleep through the night yet so we aren’t as productive as we could be. The last night was a good night! He is trying to crawl. He gets up on all fours and rocks and then lunges forward on his chest. Some how he can be from one side of the house to the other in seconds flat. I try to feed him baby food at least once a day. He is gaining weight so his cousins better watch out!

Terry is HOME and looks great! He got in Wednesday September 23 at 10:18. Well his plane was early and was waiting for us when we got there. Sorry. My dad has had him busy!

I started school at TVCC last week and man, I don’t remember it being this hard. I have already dropped a class. It was just too much for me to handle. I am taking English, Art and Education classes. Hopefully in two years I will have my teaching certificate. Hopefully!
Life couldn’t be better!

Wednesday, August 19, 2009


Terry sent some pictures in his last email. I thought that I would share. He has one month left. We are excited! My mother can't wait to have her baby boy home. We don't have a date yet, and that is killing her. She only have a month!

Just bragging!

Degan had a Dr. Appointment on August 6. The doc said he was perfect! He weights 15 lb 11 oz and is 26 1/2 inches long. He has strong muscles and is holding up his head really well. He has been rolling over for a couple weeks now. Linda said that when she picked him up from his nap yesterday, he had rolled on his back. I will get some new pictures of him. He is getting so big and cuter if that is possible. Three weeks and he is all mine!

Monday, August 10, 2009

It wasn't bad. Just a little confusing! But now it is all said and done. On Wednesday we will be homeowners. SCARY!, but exciting. I can't wait to get in and start making it my own. Thanks for all the good ideas. And thanks in advanced for the help with the decorating. I will need lots of help.

Degan is now giggling on a regular basis. It is cute. He first giggled about a month ago for my dad. NOT FAIR! I was talking a whole lot yesterday, so ran down stairs to grab my video camera and he hardly talked again. Cute, Stinken kid! He is so much fun. I can't wait until September 1st!!!!!

More CUTE Pictures

Man my baby is sooo cute!

When teaching 5 year olds you expect them to tell them secrets about there parents. Like that their moms are pregnant and their dads being naked. Now we teach 9 and 10 year olds and it tattle tale on parents hour. I know a lot of parents bad habits. Lesson to all new parents, if you do something bad your kids some how find out and tell their teachers. I have also found out through Darcia's kids, that even if you are joking, they tell like it is gospel truth. Levi is bad and goes swimming on Sunday. Hey that is what Chase told Grandma! So you know it has got to me true!

Oh my I love these pictures of Degan!

Wow, time flies! I helped my sister with Miss Gem County. Which if you ask me was a huge success! It was lots of fun. The girls were great! I put the program together and it turned out awesome. Thanks to Idaho Web Printers. We have organized it so next years program will be a piece of cake to put together. Hopefully! On Saturday Darcia and I went to Miss Idaho. Kodos to Sarah! We totally got detoured all over Boise, but still made it. We always have a great time together! Congrats to Kara Jackson, Miss Idaho. I really don't know who she is, but she won. Miss Gem County was Monday and Congrats to Keili!! You did a great job. Good luck in the coming year! Thanks to all that helped. To Jeri, thanks for the help on the computer. One of these days we will hang out again. I am not sure what happened! I can't wait for Fair FOOD! Last year there was a grease ball in my stomach for a week. I can't imagine this year being any different!

The second hardest thing I have ever done...

The hardest thing I have ever done was leaving Degan at the hospital after I got released. The next thing is leaving him so I could go back to work. I started work on Tuesday ;(. Its been really hard to leave him everyday. I have some friends watching him. I am trying to work out a schedule so I only have to work 3 days a week. They will be long hours, but it will be worth it!

I'm so cute!!

I took Degan to church for the first time today. This is his handsome church outfit!

He is soooooo cute. He is starting to fill out in the cheeks. That is a mommy thing!

It was a long hard day on Saturday.

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Sweet, sweet baby!

He is just so cute!

Thursday, April 16, 2009

And then there were three!

I know that it has a couple days... but Degan Montgomery Savage is here. April 6th 2009 at 7:49 am. There were some minor complications, but everyone is home and healthy. I woke up at 4:30, we left for the hospital at 5:30, checked in at 6:15, went though a bunch of questions. She checked me for the first time and I was dilated to a 7. We went straight to the delivery room. It was 7:00. Not long in there I asked for an epidural. She check me again and I was a 10 and I couldn't get one. The rest is a little blurry. He was here at 7:49. The complications were, I am GBS positive. It is a bacteria that grows on 1/3 of all women. It doesn't do anything to me and is no problem except when you are having a baby. During labor you get should get two rounds antibiotics. Since labor was so fast, I only got a half dose. Degan was in the NICU for 4 days. 3 of the 4 he was on antibiotics, for the possibility that he got the bacteria. He never did get it. They kept him one extra day with out any antibiotics to make sure and the he was able to come home!!! We were very excited about. He weighed 8lb 3oz, and was 21 1/2 inches long. Everything is wonderful.

Life is CRAZY!

Well in the past few weeks I have moved to a trailer in Emmett. Craig was feeding cows for the Emmett Livestock auction. Then he got a "real" job with JT Construction. He has worked for them before. We want to buy a house, but the process is taking forever!!! So now we are moving in with my parents until we find a house and close on it. We went house searching and found a couple that I really like. 2 of them sold the day before. Bummer :( Craig's first day on the job he had to go out of town for the whole week. So I have been stuck with calling a real estate agent, lending company and getting pre-approved and finding a house. I might go crazy!

I went to the Dr. on Tuesday. I am dilated to a 3. The baby can't come this week, but we are counting on next week. Just fyi, Brynn said that I could go first and rumor has it she is having a baby. She lied!

Thanks to my parents and Craig's parents. They have done so much for us. We are truley gratefull. I am not sure what I would do with out them. Also thanks to Alisa. She saved me by chocolate!! and candy. I should be set until she comes again. Thanks to Jeri and Scott. They are great friends with a great looking house! Thanks to Darcia. My baby is set for at least 9 months. She just gave us 2 car seats! Craig and I have a great support system. We love you all!

Elizabeth Buhrig!

Tonia has been sending lots of pictures of Elizabeth. She is so sweet!

It's true... We are moving.... again

Up, we sure do love to move!!! NOT. Craig got a job on at the Sales yard in Emmett and there is a house on it. Craig is working for our rent! We are moving this week. We have spent some time cleaning it. Okay, I mostly watched and Linda, Kim and Craig cleaned. I got fat ankles! It looks 10000000000000 times better than it did. We didn't take before pictures because I don't want anyone to see it. I now will be driving to Boise for work, which sucks. But we will be saving money $$$$$.

My sister had her baby!!!

Elizabeth Vietta Buhrig was born to Tonia Vietta & Theodore Lynn Buhrig at Holy Rosary Medical Center in Ontario, Oregon, at 2:21 A.M. on Saturday, February 7, 2009. She weighed 8 pounds 4 ounces and is 19 inches long with dark brown hair. She is an angel.

Thursday, February 5, 2009

My dear Sister!

For those of you have noticed that Tonia's due date is passed and I have not taken off her counter. That is because she has not had her baby yet. Everything is fine, except for the fact that she hasn't had her baby! If do doesn't have it by Feb 10th. They they will induce her. Please keep Tonia and Elizabeth in your prayers!

I had another dr. appointment. Everything is great. My Dr. is so up beat. I love it. The heart beat sounds sooooo good, my blood pressure is great. My blood sugar levels are good. My iron is a little low ( has been my hole life) but not enough to worry about it. Which is great!!!! The baby is moving all over the place. We are getting very excited for Degan to come. Craig and I have been working the last two weekends to clean out the second bedroom so he can have a room!

28 weeks!

Every thing is great! I am feeling great, besides the belly that is getting in my way! Time is flying by. I had a dr's appointment yesterday. I now start going every 2 weeks to the dr. I took the sugar test. I can never remember what it is called. I drank a very sugary drink and they took my blood. I should find out by the end of this week if I have gestational diabetes. AKA diabetes during pregnancy. Thats my up date! Thanks for the love and support!

Merry Late Christmas and Happy late New Year!

Christmas was great this year! I got off work at 1:00 on Christmas Eve and we went to my parents house to see my sister Jenny and her family! Craig went and played basketball with some buddies that came in to town. Jenny had a baby in June that I had never seen. He is the cutest thing you ever seen. He is a chunk! With a head full of hair. Her older kids are going fast! I can't believe how big they are. Dessa is in Kindergarten. Christmas Eve night we went to Grandma Rita's house for dinner. It was a small quite gathering. Craig has a great time with his Cousins. Christmas day.... we woke up to Dessa and Krehl. I was planning to sleep in but it didn't quite happen with the little ones. Craig and I had already opened presents and we had to wait for the others to open more. We drove into Craig's parents house to eat breakfast. Craig pretended to hunt, then we drove back to Craig's parents house to open presents. Erin had to work so we waited for her. They bought us shelves that haven't come in yet. Ryan (Craig's brother) and Jamie, his girlfriend were here. She is very talented at knitting. She knitted us a bear for our baby. It is so cute. Then... we went back to my parents house for dinner and presents with my family. There is nothing quite any more about that. Kids running everywhere. They play so well together. It was fun to see them. Tonia and I got cribs and pad sets for them. The boys got tools! and Craig and I got a shelfrelience. It is a really neat shelf thing. I am very excited. Jeri has one and posted it on her blog awhile ago. It will help conserve space and make room for more food storage. Terry called at about 10:00. We talked to him. He sounds like he is doing great. We spent the rest of the weekend at my parents. Saturday night we went to the Stampede game. Craig works at them and he got season tickets. My Parents and Anna came over too. It was fun. Monday I had to work then it was off to McCall for the rest of the week. We played a lot of games, wally ball and swam. Craig went snowboarding with his cousins. He had a good time. I think that he is going to go a couple more times with them this winter. Ten years ago my family made some predictions and wrote some other things. My dad brought it up there and we opened it on New Years Eve. That was fun. I wrote some silly things. It was a nice vacation. Monday morning came fast and I am very tired. To many nights of staying up late and sleeping in. We appreciate all the Christmas cards that we got. It sounds like everyone is doing wonderful. We wish you the best in 2009!
