We Took Carl Home!!!

On August 22nd we took home our first child... Carl the Chihuahua, my sweet 8 week old puppy. Thereby taking on responsibility....yikes! I sure do love Carl. If you will recall how much I've loved Cara's puppies from the beginning and especially Carl: http://klintandmary.blogspot.com/2008/07/i-love-love-love-these-puppies.html and even earlier (he is in Klint's hands on the left): http://klintandmary.blogspot.com/2008/07/puppies-find-those-puppiescruella-devil.html or if you wish to learn of his birth from my sister's blog: http://caraandbrandon.blogspot.com/2008/06/i-dont-know-nothin-bout-birthin-no_27.html I knew I "needed" Carl when I couldn't stop dreaming about those darn puppies! Despite being born normal size (besides the runt and the giant) Carl ended up being the smallest out of the 5 puppies (so far-11 weeks old)...and the cutest!

Goodbyes

Nicole & the girls have moved out to New York to be with Kris, so we helped them move on August 16th. Don't worry Klint has already planned us a trip out there to visit on Halloween! Nicole's parent's, Bruce & RosaLee, were there too. After packing up the truck we all went out to dinner at good ol' Porter's Place. I don't like goodbyes. Anyway, the week before our niece, Kimi, had her 18th birthday/goodbye pool party since she was going with Kris & Nicole to be Addie & Bailey's nanny. We'll miss you!

YW Girls Camp at Bear Lake

The first week in August I went with my Young Women to Girls "Camp" up by Bear Lake. Though it was hardly camping, we stayed at a home called "The Bear Lake Ranch House." And because all the leaders already had everything planned and wouldn't let me help I got to be one of the girls for the week! They had all the older Laurels in charge and they took care of everything, so I just got to relax and have fun. It was fun to be there with Kaylee. This was the nicest girl's camp I've been to, but it just didn't have the same feeling for me as my experiences at Camp Shalom. I was reminiscing with Natalie Speirs (Jones), my friend growing up in Orem, about it. Not once did I get yelled at by a leader at this camp it just wasn't the same! ; ) I miss being a kid, but it's fun being an adult too I can do whatever I want to! ha...well, almost.

At the Logan Temple the girls did baptisms for the dead
On the way home from Girl's Camp I went straight to Lagoon for Klint's work...I only lasted 4 rides, then needed to go home I was so nauseaus and tired from camp.

Does This Shirt Make Me Look Fat?!!

Lucky for me Klint hasn't noticed the extra pounds I've been putting on...
... Though, I guess he doesn't have much room to talk!

I love using "Photo Booth" on Klint's Mac. In the past 2 years he has had his computer I've probably taken 10 times as many photos of myself than he has! What can I say I love making myself look as ugly, funny, or ridiculous as possible! Below you will find some of my favorites:
