I decided to try and keep this blog going mostly as kind of a journal of our lives. I love looking at my old pictures and stories on here and so here is my update. Last year Corbin and I were living with my parents and going to school at Snow College. We LOVED it btw! My dad got called to be a mission President in the Quezon City North Mission. That left Corbin and I here to live in their home and have baby boy #2 without them. Karson Evan Emerick was born July 27 and is the joy of our lives. We all love him very much as cliche as that sounds, its true! Corbin now works for Mountain America Credit Union and I am still working at Subway and working on getting certified for medical transcription so I can earn money at home until we can both finish school. Corbin changed his major to computers and I am still in Nursing. I haven't been posting on this blog because we have a family blog we post on. I decided recently that it will be nice to be able to look back at a blog all about OUR family too. So from now on I will post on this blog, anything I post on the other one.

It's a BOY!! Corbin and I went up for an early ultrasound on Tuesday March 1 and we both were really thinking it was a girl. This pregnancy has been so different from Coopers and everyone was telling us they thought we were having a girl. I expected to be a little disappointed because I was really looking forward to having a girl to take shopping and do girls day out and that kind of thing. Although we were extremely happy and surprised when she said it was a boy! We are thrilled and think that Cooper and this little one will be good little buddies. I just better learn how to control my emotions at sporting events because I think I'm going to be going to my fair share of them. We really couldn't be more thrilled to be having another little boy and we are excited for the adventure it will bring!

Exciting News

So for those of you who haven't heard my parents have been called to serve as Mission President and Missionary in the Quezon City North Phillipines Mission. They will leave June 22nd and be gone for 3 years. I had a really really hard time with it and cried and cried some more, but I am getting use to it a little. The biggest thing for me is that my parents will leave 4 weeks before we are due to have our baby number 2. I am pretty upset that my baby will be 3 before my parents will even be able to see it. Corbin and I plan to visit sometime with in the year so that they can at least meet our baby. We are excited for my parents and their new adventure and we are really excited about ours as well. Cooper has been very good and loves to hug and kiss the baby already. He sings songs and talks to it and is always worried that we will leave the baby lol...We will find out in March what we are having although Cooper informs me its a girl...We will have to see when that happens. I wish you all a very happy spring even though its only February I jsut simply can not wait for all the fun adventures spring brings!

The Day from heck!

On Thursday I was at work and Corbin was home with Cooper. Subway closes at 9:00 and I thought I would be home in time to spend a little time with my family. There was a wrestling weigh in at the Gunnison High School so it was super busy we did not have time to do anything to prepare for the close. A little after 8 Corbin called me and said that Cooper had fallen and hit his nose on the brick around the fireplace and sent me a picture that didn't look too bad. I still wanted to get home and snuggle because Cooper was extremely sad. 10 min to 9 guy came in with his wife and 4 kids his sister and her kids and his dad. He said  "Im sorry to do this I know you guys are about to close. So they order and take forever becuase they can't quit talking to each other to even order. Then a couple of ladies come in and are super snotty to us and stand there trying to decide for 5 min at 9:00 when we are suppose to close what they are going to eat. 5 after 9 a girl that works across the street (at a drive in so she is also in the food business) comes in and orders food. This same Drive in orders food ALL the time at closing. In the mean time the first family that knew we were closing sits and stays!! They let all the kids run around and climb on the tables and play at the windows and make a huge mess. Finally at 9:15 I got so ticked off that I turned the open sign off and put the food away hoping they would get the hint. Finally at 9:30 they left and stayed in the parking lot another 15 min. We didn't get out of there until 10:00 and we are suppose to be out by 9:15. So by the time I got home Cooper had been crying for 2 1/2 hours for his mom. I felt so bad I started to cry and it made me even more mad that some people have no consideration for others! Once I got home Cooper's nose was clogged with blood in both nostrils and bruised and swollen. It looked so bad!! Even today he now has a black eye and its started to scab over..He looks like and ork from Lord of the Rings! The poor kid....This is why it was the day from Heck!! 

The Elk Farm

On our way to school each day we take the (short cut) behind gunnison and Centerfield to get to Ephraim. As we turn the corner there is a little elk farm that we pass. In the morning the elk are always way over on the other side where you can not see them. On the way home they are always right up by the fence and Cooper always says "I want to get out" :) He loves it and I think his dad loves it just as much!
