I am such a bad blogger. We are getting ready for Logan to get here! We only have a few more things to get, and we will be set! This week has been very eventful. This week dane went to minneapolis to interview at Target corp. He flew out on thursday right after work, and came home saturday and went straight to work until ten at night. I think he finally got home close to eleven! This next week he is going to milwaukee to interview at Khols corp. We are so grateful that he has had these opportunities. The next few months could be interesting for our little family. For now we are living at my parents until we kinda figure out what we are doing, and while we wait for our little one to come! We are so excited to be parents, and hope that we will be half as good as both of our parents were to us! I have been feeling really well! So glad that the morning sickness didn't stay. This weekend I have been a busy little homemaker. I started saturday off with cooking some homemade blueberry pancakes. Then I decided to make dane some dinner. So I made some BBQ chicken, onion and garlic mix all on a homemade braided bread. Then I decided to make some rolls. Then I made some cheesecake cookie bars. I also had made gingerbread cookies, and decorated them that morning. Sunday we woke up and I made some blueberry muffins. Then I decided to make tortilla soup, and homemade bread bowls. Then I got the wonderful Idea to make cheesy broccoli soup too! After that was all cleaned up some people wanted chocolate chip cookies, so being the nice sister that I am I made them. But then I remembered the awesome chocolate bowls that I saw on my new addiction, pintrest. So I dipped the balloons, froze the chocolate pilled the balloons off and scoped some ice cream into them and put a cookie on top. Then did more dishes and now I think I have kicked my urge to cook. I really need to get off Pintrest, Its really bad for me I have decided. So we will see what happens this week with the jobs, and interviews. We are just grateful for all the people in our lives, and all the blessings that we have!

The summer is almost over. Danes internship ends in one week. We have not heard anything about a job yet, the HR people at Lands End sure know how to take their time. So we are planning on returning to Springville for a bit. We have had some good experiences out here. We are so grateful for the church, the gospel is the same everywhere. Although sadly to say the members are not the same everywhere. We love the small branch out here. Many people don't have family around, so they make each other their family. We have felt so much love and friendship from them. We have been truly blessed to get to know many of them. I have been spending a lot of my time with one of my new friends Michelle. She tends three girls in the branch, so I have got to know them as well. We have enjoyed going swimming, going on picnics, painting toe nails and many more fun things. I have loved the company, while Dane is at work. A small (I said small) part of me is kinda sad to leave, I think i'm going to miss the siren that goes off at noon everyday. I still pause and wait to see if the pitch goes up for a tornado. We are excited to find out in 12 days the gender of the baby is! It's killing me having to be this patient! But we are almost there! I have been so antsy trying to wait to buy things! I'm going to have to restrain myself from going on a huge shopping spree when we do find out. We are so excited and grateful to be parents, nervous as well though! We have felt the love that the lord has for us a lot in the past few months. We are also very blessed to have so many people that love us, and care about us. Being in wisconsin was a very hard thing for me, and I discovered that I can do hard things when I have the lords help!

Well after many months of just living life, with really no change... We now have change! Dane got offered an internship for Lands End Clothing Company, in the Global Sourcing division (at least thats what I think it's called). The only bad part is that it is 1,300 miles away from home. We are going to be moving to a small town called dodgeville, with 4,000 people. Oh WAIT no, there is now 4,002 People living there! Haha. We are both excited, and a little nervous. I'm really nervous! I haven't been away from my family for more than three weeks in my entire life I don't think. It is going to be a fun new adventure in our lives. The good news is that we will be just a few short hours from a lot of fun different places. Including only 45 minutes from the worlds waterpark capitol, not sure the name though. Dane and I arrived in Dodgeville this last tuesday evening after spending one night in Iowa, and 23 hours in a uhaul, pulling the little truck. That was a long road trip. tuesday night after we unloaded all of our belongings into a storage unit ( in 90 degree weather and who knows the humidity, it was HOT) we decided to check into our cute, little, convenient, VERY best western. The next day was spent running around, taking the little truck to a mechanic to get the altenator replace, Renting the only rental car in the city of dodgeville, looking at three paces to live, seeing the lands end campus, signing our storage unit agreements, eating lunch and stopping for some icecream. We then made our way to Madison to fly home. our flight was delayed, and we thought we would have to spent the night in denver. but to our surprise it was a blizzard in denver and all the planes were delayed. So we finally made it home at four in the morning. We were so tired. Thats about all from our adventures to dodgeville. This next week we finally leave to the Cayman Islands with my family! We are so excited! Well thats all I have to say for now!

I guess we are boring bloggers, seeing as how we only have one post. Now we have two! I have all these pictures that I kept saying that I was going to "blog" about but haven't. So I'll start with Halloween, Dane and I carved some very nice pumpkins. We also went to our friends the Longmores home for a lot of snacks and watched The Nightmare Before Christmas. We had a great time!
Thanksgiving came, and went way too quickly. We spend the holiday in Vernal with Danes wonderful family. We had a great time with lots of yummy food. Joanne, Rachel and I were able to experience the wonderful world of Wal-Mart on black friday. After fighting our way through the isles, we ended the trip with nothing. The lines were way too long to wait in! We had a great time though!
Christmas was over way to quickly as well. We spent it with my family. We had traditional clement christmas eve, Pizza, Papa's Grab Bag, and the christmas story. Christmas day we opened presents, had homemade waffles, were lazy, and ended it with a yummy dinner that mom made. Dane also introduced me to The Forgotten Carols. Reading this book was a tradition that his family used to do. We decided that we would continue this tradition within our own family.
We Have been married for one year! It's crazy how fast time goes by, and we are still happy and in love with one another. Knowing that I get to be with my best friend forever is one of the greatest feelings. I am so grateful for my loving husband, who is way too good to me! Since we threw away the top of our cake two months after being married (It was taking up too much room in the freezer), I decided to make another "top of a cake" (plus it was a great excuse to use all my new decorating tips I got for christmas!). We also went to Red Lobster. It was wonderful, even though it made me sick later. Oh and did I mention... IT SNOWED!! A LOT! just like the day we got married!
New Years was fun, and low key. We went to dinner with the family. We then spent the rest of the night at my parents. Blake and Hailey, and Carly came over. We worked on the traditional puzzle, got in the hot tub, then entered the new year in with apples to apples and a little sparkling cider. It was a fun night!
We were able to go down to Arizona a week or two ago. Dane wanted to check out Thunderbird (this is the grad school he would like to go to), and maybe a few job opportunities. We spent our few days with Uncle Rob and Aunt LeNea. They were wonderful hosts! We are so grateful to them! We are just sorry that they all got the flu right as we arrived. We were able to see little Mya, which I was so excited about. We also got to have a sleep over with Taylor, who is such a fun little person to be around. We also got to see Jamie and Parker at Desert Ridge for lunch. With everyones energy, we had a great time! We spent a day with Danes friend Cody and his wife Caitlin. We took a tour around their neighborhood, looking at vacant houses (Just in case). We went to the mall, and went to Ruth's Chris for a WONDERFUL dinner. we had such a great time, we didn't want to come home to the cold (did i mention it was 80 degrees! IN JANUARY). But we braced it and drove the long ten hours home.
Thats about all I have to write right now. So now you are all caught up on the lives of the Ehler family! Oh! One more thing! I have painted some really cute valentine toe nails and want to share the pictures! :) Thats all.
