Then his other naughty habit is to get every box of cereal or crackers out of the cupboards and he dumps them out on the living room carpet. I am not quite sure what his attraction is to dumping things on the living room carpet but I am sure going to nip it in the butt before it becomes the death of my child.
And to think I want another boy. Maybe I should rethink this one.

This year Stake Girls Camp was up at Cabin Creek near Lake Alturas. It was a beautiful area. The weather cooperated all week and we were able to have a very enjoyable week.
The theme was M*A*S*H (More Active Spiritual Homes). So each of the girls was issued a hat, t-shirt, dog tag, and songbook upon arrival to Camp Zion: Operation MASH.
I will be honest I thought that I would be able to snap alot of pictures of all the activities, but I was in the middle of helping with everything that I didnt get really any. So note to self for the future. Call someone to be the camp historian so that everyone can enjoy pictures of camp. My roll at camp was Assistant Stake Camp Director, which was quite a change seeing as how the last time I attended camp was as a girl.
It sure was a fun experience, but glad to have all the meetings and planning over with. We started planning back in February and girls camp was June 21-25. So you can guess that we had quite a few meetings. But after many disappointing, successful and frustrating meeting. Things came together and it was a success!
Monday: Just the stake leaders, cooks and Junior leaders set off for camp. We got everything ready for the next day when everyone else would be arriving. We had plenty of free time to play games and enjoy nature. Then we enjoyed a dutch oven dinner. It was incredible to say the least.
Tuesday: Everyone arrived and put there stuff in their cabins and then headed off on their hikes. Then came back, decorated their cabins, got stuff set up, showered, and had free time. We ate dinner and then did our skits. We had them do their skits like a t.v. commerical trying to sell us something that would help make our homes more spiritually active. They were really good and they sure put some time and effort into them. Then we played games at the lodge and went to bed.
Wednesday: The 1st and 2nd years did their certification and then 3rd and 4th years did crafts. Then in the afternoon we had four 30 minute classes that everyone rotated to classes on the importance of recognizing the Holy Ghost , Family Home Evenings, Your attitude affects your home, Building Family Unity. Then it was Bishopric Night/Testimony Night.
Thursday: Morning was 1st and 2nd years crafts; and 3rd and 4th years certification. Then in the afternoon we had two boats and the girls got to go enjoy the lake. Then it was Stake Night. We had a live band play a few songs, then I gave a presentation on Spiritual Homes and used our family life growing up and my life now. Then a member of our Stake Presidency President Montgomery talked to us. It was a wonderful meeting.
Friday: We packed up and headed home :)!
We had a bear experience this year as well. We had a bear that was in our camp the first day. It was on the porch of my cabin, but we chased it off. Then the second day, I was headed down to talk to a cabin and on the path to the cabin about 50 yards or so away from me was the same bear. It was a little too close for comfort. So I turned around and hustled back to get our guy that had his gun. He chased it away again. I swear that the bear just looked at me like "Hey how are you doing". She didnt care that I was even there. She wasnt scared a bit. Just kept on walkin and didnt even mind that we were there. So the guy chased her off and she hissed at him so he put a bullet or two in her. Which upset several of our girls. They didnt understand why the could just come set a trap and haul her away. But apparently it was still bear season and the fish and game werent going to come get her. Instead they said that if she was going to be a bother to shoot her, so thats what happened. I say better the bear than one of the girls.
So we had a very good camp, with a little drama and a few pranks. But hopefully the girls had fun and enjoyed themselves like I did. :)!!!!!!!!!!!
This was one of the crafts. There was tons of different paper to chose from and the girls were very creative.

I havent been too sick. I have been nauseated just about everyday for the past 16 weeks. But I dont throw-up. I have been extremely tired which has been a challenge seeing as how I have had both Logan and Hailey. But we have gotten through it. Things are getting better, nausea is almost gone, but I am still extremely tired most days. Which wouldnt be so bad if my list of things to do would stop growing. I am just glad that so far things are going well and that we are half way to adding a new addition to our family. I cant wait. Oh yeah and Matt wants a girl and I want another boy, but seeing as how we dont get any choice in the matter, we will take what we get because you cant send them back and you wouldnt anyway. We just want another healthy baby no matter whether it is a girl or a boy.
DUE DATE: DECEMBER 11
So we have had requests for the;
8th by Tianna
10th by Flint and my Aunt Shelli
23rd by Kyanna (but sorry Kyanna I sure hope that I have the baby before then)
Check Back on the 28th and hopefully we will know whether boy or girl. YAY!!!!!!!!!!
