Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Basically I am freaking excited for the second part to the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie to come out. I watched a fantastical trailer for it last night and I was pretty much freaking out through the whole thing. Here is the link to watch it:
BAH!!! I'm so excited!!!
And in honor of this movie I have added another poll to the side of my blog. That would be to see which book from the Harry Potter series is the most popular. Please feel free to vote in the poll, or not if you are lame sauce. :)

Easter Eggs and Happy Babies

Last Sunday Ross and I dyed easter eggs. We had three eggs each to dye and it was awesome. Here are some pictures from our first time dying eggs as a married couple!

My first time being able to write the last name Bateman on my egg.
Ross's cool egg.
My cool egg.
Ross eating another awesome egg. Actually, I think he just wanted to see if he could fit it in his mouth.
Ross and me together!
So something that I learned about my husband is that he does not
like to eat the yolks of hard boiled eggs. So we have finally found something that I will e
at but Ross will not. I don't know if there is anything else that I eat but Ross won't. Aside from mustard and ketchup sandwiches, that is. :)
Oh, and here is a picture of my dear guinea pig, Chuck. Just because I love him.
So on Wednesday, the 20th, Ross and I headed down to Orem where I am now residing. We stopped in Kaysville to visit my family and to give Daniel his birthday present, which was awesome, by the way. I also took my dog Sparky on a walk. Ross and I also had a wonderful time joining my mom's preschool for a while. We got to paint some egg shaped paper and also to sing some dinosaur songs with the kids. Those kids are crazy. Yes indeed they are.
I asked Sparky to pose on the walk and this is what I got.
Here is Sparky on his stool that he loves. I do love that cutie puppy!
After Kaysville Ross and I traveled to Tooele to visit his brother, Jason, and his family. Shalee just had a new baby. His name is Archer Dunn Bateman. And he is stinkin' cute. They were great to feed Ross and I dineras well. I really do love that family. Eli did have a hard time though, he wasn't very happy at dinner time, but Elsie sure was a chatter box. But all she really said was: "Da da da da da da da!" But that is ok, she is still cute.
Here is a picture of Elsie, she wouldn't smile, but that is ok.
Here is Eli on Ross's shoulders, I know it's blurry, but I don't really care.
Here is baby Archer! I think maybe I will nickname him Legolas, because Legolas is awesome and also an archer, although mostly he is a handsome elf.
Here is me holding baby Archer.
Here is Ross holding baby Archer.
Baby Archer isn't sure what he thinks of Ross.
After Tooele, Ross and I went on our way to Orem. It was a nice drive that we went on and it was really fun just to talk for a while. Oh, and hold hands, too. :) We made it to my Aunt Stacie's and Uncle Bill's house around 8:00 and then moved my stuff inside. They sure are fantastic for letting me stay at their place for a while. Their house is gorgeous. They also have a crazy cat named Miles. He is ridiculous and likes to randomly attack my legs. At least he is de-clawed. :) Well, Ross left to head back to Logan around 9 and made it back safely. I really do miss that guy, but I'm also very excited to get started working with the Lone Peak color guard next week! The orientation for try-outs is on Monday, and then clinics and try outs are throughout next week. I'm super excited and I hope I can also find another job. I'm a little nervous, but also excited, for my job interview at a vet clinic on Tuesday. Wish me luck!

Lone Peak

After much prayer, fasting, pondering, etc, Ross and I came to the decision that I should go down to Highland and work with the Lone Peak color guard. And that is what I am going to do. The plan is that Ross will stay up here in Logan to complete this semester and to continue his job, as it is very nice that he has a full time job right now. I am moving down on the 20th of this month, which is coming very quickly indeed. I will be living with my awesome Uncle Bill and Aunt Stacie for the first little while as I search for a job and another place to live.
I talked to Darilyn and we are both very excited for me to help out. I am super excited for this amazing opportunity! On a slight side note, I already have a job interview at the Veterinary clinic in the PetsMart in American Fork. Woo hoo! That interview is on the 26th. Pray for me! It would be so cool to be doing color guard and also working with animals at the same time. What a great blessing that would be! It would be absolutely perfect and I would love every second of it!
The plan for Ross to join me is thus: After he finishes his semester here at USU, he is going to begin the process of figuring out transferring schools. That man is amazing, and he does way too much for me, but he is totally happy and willing to do this so that I can fulfill my dreams. At UVU they also have an aviation program and that is where Ross would be going to school. Once I have found an apartment for us and have settled down in it, Ross will come and join me and it will be awesome sauce!
I am really going to miss my ward, but I know that this is what I'm supposed to be doing now in my life. I'm very blessed to have a husband that supports me and believes in me. He is such an amazing man and I am happy to know that I get to be sealed to him for forever. He is my everything and I absolutely adore him. I love my husband!

Decisions, Decisions

Life has been going splendidly well as of late. Ross and I are still trying to figure out whether or not we should move down to Utah Valley where he can continue his schooling and I can be a color guard advisor. But all will be well and we will figure it out.
General Conference was fantastic, as it usually is. I hope that those of you that watched it enjoyed it as much as I did. I felt like there were a lot of talks that were meant just for me. And Elder Holland even discussed how talks are meant for us, what a great talk.
That's really all that I have to say, but I just wanted to post a little something. Woot!
