This is my brother Brenton and my Mom, the day my brother went through the temple for the first time. Brenton is the oldest boy in our family that is a church member and therefore is the first in the Olson and Loerzel families to ever serve a mission. We are so excited to get all his letters and hear about all the he is doing to share the gospel with the people of mexico. We all love him so much and think that he is doing just great things.
So here is our new house!! It was My-Rachel Grandmother's house. It has great ceilings, plaster walls, and hard wood floors!! We are still trying the get everything in order, which I will be happy if it is done in less than a year. We love it! One tip if you move into a house that you already have history with it can get kind of emotional or maybe that is the postpartum stuff?!?!

Ok, so things have been a little crazy!! In a nutshell since March, I have had 3 close family members die, a birth of a baby that the Dr thought was going to be to small and cleaning things out of my Grandma's house so that we could buy it and move in. With all this we have borrowed a digital camera and do have pics to post but have not had the time or energy. I will be adding pics this week!! So keep checking back for them, of the new house, Willie, Eddie, and maybe Mike and I. Thanks for the help we have gotten from so many people! We love you!!

We went to Buffalo, NY for my cousin's wedding!! Congrats Dan and Sheila!! While there we were able to go to Niagara Falls and Palmyra. It was all really great, to be with famliy and see so many beautiful places. The only thing while in NY, we lost our camera. So there will not be any pictures on the blog for a while, sorry!

So we have had a pet turtle since Labor day last year 2007. Last Sunday we found him dead in his cage. We were very sad, I should say that due to my current state and all that has happened in our lives over the last couple of months I cried like a baby. William was so very cute with his little turtle, he didn't have a name just "Turtle". We will miss you little guy!!

So I have realized that I don't think I told anyone via our blog that we are having our second baby. Another boy is due in about 4 weeks. He is a little small so they are watching him closely, but everything should be ok. No pictures of my pregnant body but lots of ultrasound pictures!!

So I have not posted anything in many weeks!! Sorry life gets a little crazy when you lose someone as close to you as your father. My dad was diagnosed with Liver Cancer just a few months after Mike and I got engaged in 2004. He worked really hard to fight it off, but 6 months ago started to lose the battle. I remember growing up and hearing all of my friends tell me how "cool" my dad was, my answer was that they didn't have to live with him. I used to follow him around as a kid and wanted to be just like him, I turned out more like him than I ever realized. I have a stronger testimony after this that the Lord really does lighten our burdens in times of need. I am so very greatful for the testimony of eternal families that my parents helped me build!!

So to get ready for the baby I have been organizing the baby things. William found the Nuks and bottles and thinks that they are pretty fun. I think we might have a problem when the baby come with William wanting to be a baby too. This is a picture of one of the things he likes to do with the Nuks. He runs around with them in his mouth like this and drools all over. Mike thinks I should take them away but I just think it is so cute I can't. What a fun guy!!!
