End of the Drought

So, uh...it's been a while since our last post. My mom's right...I'm not busy, so that's not my excuse. My excuse is that I'm NOT busy. I have been doing NOTHING for weeks, and so there's been nothing to blog about. Although, if you want pictures of me laying on the couch day after day in my pj's, let me know, and I can definitely get some for you. Other than that, you'll have to enjoy the few things we have done in the past few weeks.

Ah, the rain... I was SO happy when it was raining during the waking hours that I made Noah take a picture. I even got to wear my SUPER cute rain boots! It was great...the roads were all a little flooded, and it was so fun to drive around in all the water. I LOVE rain even more now that I live here where it is much more rare.

Nate and Celeste are here (although they leave temporarily tonight). Nate came down to take his police exams and passed all of them with flying colors and is waiting to here the news of if and when he will start the academy. Celeste came down and joined him for a few days and look for houses. Last night we went to the Mesa temple to see a photography exhibit that is on display at the visitor's center. It was really amazing (the second time Noah and I have seen it) and we were glad to be able to share something so spiritual with our good friends.


And finally...the REAL reason Celeste came down...to lay out with me! We actually only hit the pool twice in the days she's been here, but it's been really fun since the pool is the only way you can be outside and enjoy life. The boys came with us, too, and we had a blast coming up with new tricks (see below) and having underwater swimming contests. We were so happy to have Nate and Celeste come and stay with us for a little while and are looking forward to them moving here NEXT WEEK!

The best way to get on your flotation device is with a front flip! We highly recommend you try this before you judge...it requires a lot of skill. This trick was invented by Noah. Sorry about the booty shot...we were caught mid flip!

Finally, a few other things that have happened these past few weeks:
I watched all 3 Anne of Green Gables videos in 2 Days
I mastered the Rubiks cube
We found out we're having a baby next spring
We converted Nate and Celeste to eating at In and Out
We beat Nik & Anissa and Nate & Celeste at Pictionary

I love the new post -- and thanks for responding to my request! It looks like you and Nate and Celeste had so much fun. It will be really nice when they get moved down and you guys can continue to hang out! I also loved how you inserted the announcement in the middle of all the other stuff! You are so silly and I am excited for you to get ready for the new (other) Rasheta baby!

Congratulation on your baby!!! I am addicted to In and Out. I so wish they had them here in Utah. I would love to be able to drive to Nevada, Arizona, or California just to get one. Whenever we go on vacation, I always look to see if they have one near by. Congrats and good luck, it is the best thing that will ever happen to you.

Jody said...

Billie Jo said...

Guess I should check up on you more than I have been. And all I get when I call is that you are asleep! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO excited. I actually figured it out when you were here in June but I didn't want to seem to nosey. I mean really I know you like to sleep but there is only one reason why most people sleep THAT much!

Giselle and Noah Rasheta said...

Ha ha...Billie Jo, I think that's funny since I DIDN'T have any idea that I was pregnant when I was there in June... you are so smart!

The Cox Family said...

So I scrolled down on your blog before I read your post and saw the little baby strology, and thought I had missed something. It was only until after I read your post that I found your little sentence about you being pregnant. And you say that you have nothing to blog about! Are you kidding me, that is HUGE news!!! Congrats you two. We are so excited for you!
