New Calling...

Last week the primary president called Matt's phone asking for me...

I got a little bit excited and yet a little bit nervous. 

I guess that there is a sister in our ward that is going to teach english in Japan for 7 weeks, and they need a substitute. That's where I come in. She wanted to know if I would be interested in teaching for 7 weeks. 

Of course I said yes! I have been wanting to be in primary for a long time, and now I can be.

I sat in on the class today and loved it! The kids are great, and very.... enthusiastic haha. I am teaching the Valiant 11 class. 

I'm pretty stoked people! That's all :D

I am so excited to have a calling that I kind of know what I am doing. I also have a calling in the relief society, but I have NO idea what I am supposed to do. So I am hoping that this calling will help me and Matt become a bit more interactive with our ward!

Family Photos

We convinced Kelsie to take some family pictures for us on friday. Unfortunately Cohen was not a happy camper during most of the pictures... But Keslie being the awesome photographer she is, she got a bunch of cute pictures. :)

Cohen's face looks like he was just at the dentist and got injected with some numbing stuff.... HA

Probably one of my most favorite pictures.

Another favorite

The all so famous "O" face :D


I love being able to use Kelsie to take some family pictures for free.. Well not really for free, we bought papa john's and root beer that night haha.
But thank you Kelsie we love them! You have now become the new family photographer for life, SUCKER!

Let's start from the beginning....
Kelsie: "Hey Amy, wanna run a half marathon with me?"
Me: "Uh.....nope!"
Kelsie: "Matt will pay you... :)"
Me: "........."
Kelsie: "$100 a mile :)"
Me: "...OKAY"

Yes everyone I have decided to run a HALF MARATHON!! And Matt has downed the cost to I think $800 total..So whatever that is a mile.. haha

Kelsie has convinced me that it will be fun and a good idea...(good idea, in the fact that I am getting $$ out of it haha). 

So we started our running last week on tuesday, so today was the second week of running.. We were supposed to run just a mile today and then our long run (on Saturday) was supposed to be 1.5 miles. BUT Kelsie and I didn't know how to mark out just a mile... So we actually ran 2 MILES! HAHA

It felt way good to run that far, but definitely HARD. 

So far I have been staying pretty on schedule with what I am supposed to run everyday... Today I ran 1.5 without stopping, so that is good... Hopefully it will get easier.. 

Mother's Day was on Sunday. Yes, it was my first Mother's Day and it was amazing!! Matt and I sort of celebrated on Saturday though. He took me out to California Pizza Kitchen (YUM) and gave me an awesome present, some new running shoes! I love them tons!! 

Nike Free TR Fit Women's Training Shoes
Okay so these aren't the exact pair that Matt got me. He got me some way cute purple ones, which I loved as well, but I just kinda like these ones a little bit better. And actually I ordered a different pair before I ordered these ones lol! Woops-a-daisy.. Anyway let's just say I LOVE THESE SHOES!!

On Sunday we went to church and Matt's co-teacher (who owns a cafe) brought in some chocolate covered strawberries. MY FAVORITE! 

After church we went over to my parent's house and had an amazing pot roast dinner and played the WII with the family.

All in all I must say that I have the most amazing family! I am so grateful to be a mom to the cutest little boy ever! I just hope that I will be the mom that he fully deserves! I love him and Matt so much and I am loving every minute of having my very own family!

Thanks so much for the best first Mother's Day!!
