And I blog!

Well we miss our family and freinds but are loving our little adventure here in Illinois (the 's' is silent). haha I have always known that but it still has not stopped me from looking like a complete idiot and saying it wrong.
 It is flat as a pancake out here! Like the middle of the ocean but on land. Crazy.
The people here are so freindly and we are blessed with missionary opportunities everywhere we go! The ward here is amazing too. The first Sunday we both felt the Spirit so strong as we listened to the testimonies. It just amazes me, no matter where we are we can always find a ward and its like being home. The church is true.
To our suprise we recieved callings for the summer- nursery leaders! Which according to my mom is the greatest calling on earth. Right after extending the call the bishop promptly stated "Our only hope is that you still desire to have your own children after this experience." haha love it! The kids are darling though and they especially love Ryan.
I have not been very good at documenting anything.. but here are the few photos I have managed!
Saturdays are now the best because it means work finishes early and I get my man all to myself! After one of our amazing dates I realized we needed to start taking pics so this is our attempt with the self timer. Its slightyly blurry but its all we got.

I saw this cake on my friend Cassidy's blog and just had to try it! This is my first attempt so not that great but I was excited! Shout out to Makally for taking this photo since I could not get a decent one for my life. :)

Finally home to snuggle after a loooooong thirteen hour work day. He is the cutest. 

Aggrivation! On our seven month anniversary Ry suprised me with our own Wells family aggrivation board! To those of you who know what this is, ours is double sided. Thats right, six man and four man! He passed an Amish community on his way home where they sell things they make and saw one, so he stopped to get it for me, wrapped it up complete with a love note, and had a friend stick it on our deck so I wouldnt suspect. :) I love him.
Oh! and the lady he bought it from said she it was the first she had ever sold, and that she didnt even know how to play! crazy. But it was the sweetest suprise and we have had a blast playing it and teaching our friends here!

Meet little miss Hailey Noorda. She is the SWEETEST little bean and we love her! Her wonderful parents are our good freinds, and one of our highlights is getting to babysit her. Being around her is getting me SOOO excited for little baby Bailey! Yay!
