She's COMING woo hoo.....

So the last time I blogged about this was a few weeks back when we had dinner with Seni & Ita talking about the baby in her lil tummy. We'll since then Ita set an appointment for an ultrasound to confirm if it was going to be a little boy or a little girl. Just a reminder that we had agreed if the Baby was a little boy we'd prefer for them to have him since that would be the first son, and if it was to be a girl then we would LOVE to have her! We'll she had a check up last week and we found out that the due date is Jan. 3 & then they set her ultra sound for Oct. 30 which was yesterday & of course with my title of the blog BABY is a....BABY GIRL!! We also found out that she may have Baby the end of December OMG so much is going through my head its pretty crazy!! All my husband could do was smile & tell me we have to start buying things...ah..he knows me to well LOVE TO SHOP!! Besides all this excitement I'm so humbled & grateful to my Father in Heaven he truly knows ones hearts desire!! He has never failed me with anything that i have asked for. I'm grateful for loving siblings like Seni & Ita to love us so much and in trust us with the GREATEST BLESSING of taking BABY. I had found out after being married to Jayy that me & Ita are related through our mother's funny thing is her Mom so reminds me of my Mom, and often times we find ourselves "quoting" the ways our Mom's raised us!!

I don't think I'll ever be able to explain very well what is going through my mind & especially in my heart!! I'm excited to do all the little things that I've watched all the great women in my life do with there Baby's. I'm excited to see my husband carry ALL of Baby's things lol, can't wait to hear her little cry, when she teeth's, change her diapers, feed her, go shopping cause she can't stop growing. I'm excited to start our own little family traditions, the Holiday's, birthdays, family pictures. Can't wait to see my niece & nephews play with her, or my parents be Grandparents all over again with our Baby, or my brother's (her Uncles's) do her little pu'i's lol.....cause there more excited to have a little niece. I can't wait to teach her all that i know about LIFE & more importantly to teach her about the Gospel & how loving our Father in Heaven is. I can't wait to tell her how special she is & how much we LOVE her!! Dang it I'm going to have to stop before i cry all over my keyboard hoi...Isn't that the BEST news!! What a TREAT for us this Halloween I'll ALWAYS remember this time..when I found out we were having a little girl!! Stay tuned family & friends cause the Nydegger's is growing to have a new addition!!

So last post for today FOR REALS!! I swear I'm going to stay up on this "consistency". Now it may not be that big of a deal for some to "blog" but for me it is because it my own lil journal so please BARE with me!
So October 18th (Sunday) as i was rushing into the chapel to get to the Young Women Room (Laurel Teacher) I was stopped at the doorway by Neti Lui (my brother, & the Stake Clerk) asking me to go with him to the Stake Office so I follow him, but all I'm thinking is to get to Young Women's to teach my lesson, not realizing what was in store for me.
A few minutes pass & I get directed into the high council room to be greeted by Tonga (i think that's his name) the 2nd counselor to the Stake Presidency. Well long story short I've been called to serve as 2nd Counselor for the Stake Young Women Presidency...woo hoo...I'm sooooooo excited & at the same time a little nervous. I've been so used to our Young Women in our Ward & area but now its time to work with ALL of them in our Stake. I have no DOUBT my Father in Heaven will be there for me, I know if anything I'll be LEARNING a TON from the Young Women along with the great women I'll be working with Mapuana Tuia (my cousins wife) Angela Tuiaki, & Lose Lao. I'm indeed grateful that i have this time to serve my Father in Heaven, and the Young Women of this Stake & look forward to ALL that lies ahead the good, and the bad all in all it will be for my own benefit!!

Natividad Moala Sales....

So i met this little girl when I married my KING LEONIDA$ back in March 2007. Her full name is Natividad Moala Sales she is half Mexican (woo woo) and Tongan and she came out with BEST of both worlds. She is my sister in law Crystal & Jose's oldest daughter. When I first met her she was very shy, it took her about 2months before she really liked coming around me, but when she did it was no turning back. She has now become my "lil girl" she has me & her Uncle wrapped around her lil finger BUT she has learned to listen to what I say so she's not to spoiled. Since then she has been an added grandchild to my parents they LOVE her just as much as there other grand kids. I think of how lucky she is to have so many Grandparents to surround her with LOVE and lots of SUPPORT as she grows up. Last Sunday was her primary program her 2nd year with a part, she attends church weekly with her Grandma Moala & is a great example for her parents & the rest of us with her desire to learn more about the Gospel. Last year we had bought her this beautiful white dress, but this year she wanted to wear a "fala" (is what she called it) so went traditional with the Tongan wear. Thanks to my Mom and her magic fingers to hook something up for her the night before she was BEAUTIFUL!! Here are a few pictures.... Me (with my eyes closed hoi) Jayy & Baby Moala

BYU Baby....

Ok..ok despite that game w/ TCU we STILL LOVE us some BYU!! We were invited to the IONGI's (Lu, Silia & the 3 DIVAS) home to watch our BYU TEAM..despite the LOSS we had us some good grub (yummy pizza's & pasta thanks IONGI's) and the best company!! It was nice to finally sit back with sister Silia & catch up on the latest with our lives. This women is amazing....a very very hard worker in ALL.... her calling, as a mother, as a wife, and of course as a women out there in the working field...but what amazes me is her CALMNESS about it all!! I often think about what i have on my plate which is...we'll not much compared to some of my sisters!! I do hope that when the time comes & we have our kids that i'll be able to hold it down like them!! Now for the best part which was watching our husbands Lu & Jayy as they watched our team go down the toilet <---literally!! These two have to be the biggest BYU supporters its pretty crazy...especially Lu ha..ha..ha...its NEVER a DULL moment LOVED it!! At least we can say UNGA #45 did his best & were pretty proud!! Harvey & Jayy are 1st cousins (Tausinga side) sad to say when they were younger Jayy used to beat him up...booooo....but NOW look at him!! Moded to my husband ha..ha..j/p. Thanks again to the IONGI's loved watching the game with you guys..and as for our team BYU...just SMASH the "U" this year PLEASE!!

Back it up....FILI FAMILY Oct. 23, 2009 FRIDAY

We all met at G-Ma & G-Pa Lapu'aho's had some goood homemade chili, played some games & off we went to the HAUNTY CORN MAZE where it was nothing but falling (Morena lol), screaming (the lil boys), getting lost in the maze (Sinai, Haloti w/Leia & Nini) holding hands (the lil boys again w/palangi girls WTH?) some sweet hot cocoa, along with yuummyy donuts (courtesy of the Iongi's)!!

Thursday, October 8, 2009


Ok really what kind of blog is "SSSHHHHHHhhhh....." we'll i can't help it, it's like when someone tells you "Can i tell you a secret?" and your hearts beating wondering what it could be & at the same time a million thoughts cross your mind of what it "could be"....and then....we'll a lot of things can be the you "guessed right", or you already "heard", or your way off...ok let me just share already....heck this "blog" is for the purpose of a journal for me!!

So last Friday we had dinner with my lil brother in law Paseni & his beautiful wifey Ita (Wolfgramn) now this wasn't just some "Friday nite dinner" there was much more to it. This cutie couple has been blessed with two adorable girls Kato & Fehi, and earlier this year they found out they were expecting yet another. When finding out the news we were sooooooo HAPPY for them, and just excited to add yet another to our family. We'll to make a short story even shorter & to get to the point...(because with later posts i'm sure i'll share more) They are giving us the BLESSING of adopting the most precious gift one can give....the BABY!! That's right folks...Mr. & Mrs. Nydegger are going to be PARENTS <-----HOLY MOLY. Now things can change from now to then ONLY because we've discussed with them if they are to have a lil baby boy that we would want them to keep him since they don't have a son. Ita is having the symptoms as she did with the other two girls, but she is due for an ultra sound to find out. These two are truly SPECIAL...during our dinner they had told me & Jayy that what ever they were going to have they wanted us to have. It's so hard to share everything that's going on ONLY because I can't put it down right....let me just say we are soooooooooooooo EXCITED more like beyond. I am soooooooo grateful for these two & the love and trust they have in me & Jayy but more importantly I know if it wasn't for our Father in Heaven & his unconditional LOVE to bless us with this. I know he hears & answers prayers and with out a DOUBT knows ones HEARTS get ready my dear friends & family for more updated info on the Baby!! Oh duh..she is due Dec. 29th yes...2010 BABY is our YEAR!!


Thats how i've been feeling the last few days with L I F list of "things to do today" which ends up being a few days old, to a week, and then a month before i know it half the year has gone by.... AND majority of the "things on the TODAY list" are STILL on my LIST!! <-----Did that even make sense? Probably not..oh well AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!
However on the brighter side of things...I'm going to be PATIENT with myself & just know...I CAN DO IT!!

Continue on Aunty Ruby....

One of my favorite pictures...Aunty Ruby with Moala Si'i, and Silia (my sis in law's daughters) They LOVE there Grandma Lupy!!

Right here you can see the edge of the fala Aunty Ruby brought for my father in law. Jayy's 1st cousin's the Makoni Boys.
I forgot ot mention that when Aunty Ruby brought over with my hala the "tu'uanga" she had the blanket wrapped in the most beautiful, fine fala (from her trip from Tonga). Now i've seen a lot of fala's but this one....sheesh I wanted to keep it myself lol...but really thats how beautiful it was. In this picture of the pall bearers they were standing on the side of it....I know with out a doubt my father in law was smiling from above!! Thanks again Aunty Ruby!!

My Aunty Mom's right hand!!

Aunty Ruby, Me, and Uncel Vili @ Dad's burial.
The BEAUTIFUL white blanket...Aunty Ruby fixing the flowers.

My 2nd Mother...Aunty Ruby

So I've been meaning to blog about this but couldn't load the pictures for some reason, and then i forgot my log in for my blog. ( I know who does that? So the pictures above were from my father in law's funeral @ his burial. With the death of my father in law & being married to the oldest i learned sooooo much, but I wanted to blog about one thing that STOOD out to me the whole time during the services. My APPRECIATION of my FAMILY. When the news came about Dad passing i recieved non-stop calls from my Mom's sisters my Aunty's what I was needing, what they could help with, where i could find certain things for the funeral. But one Aunty in particular was my Aunty Ruby...LOVE this WOMEN.
Growing up we've always been close to this family, now dont get me wrong on my Filimoeatu side we are all very close but this family was different...maybe because my Dad & my Uncle Vili (Aunty Ruby's handsome hubby) are cousins, and they BOTH were eva'ing to my Mom & Aunt pretty much the same time!! I remember being @ the Morturary with Jayy & Mom (Moala) finalizing all Dad's programs when I get a call from my Aunty Ruby...she called to ask me if I knew or had the "tu'uanga" (tongan for his mat or flooring for the casket) for my father in law....besides the other billion things crossing my mind, i knew my mother in law didn't want anything Tongan (mats, fala's etc) I told my Aunt what I had in mind, & what my mother in laws idea were...and waaa laaaa with out hesitation my Aunt told me she was going to make it & to not worry about it. I still remember how i felt...tears came down, and a sigh of relief came over the pix's it shows what my father in law was wrapped with....the BEAUTIFUL WHITE (designed) BLANKET....made by my Aunty. You can't see the deatil in the blanket but boy did i get compliments about it. Just like Dad wanted it....through out the funeral besides making this beautiful blanket with in 2 days, and the other 6-7blankets she made for my hala...not ONE DAY did she miss coming over to help out at the house in the kitchen!! I'm truely greatful for the family I was BLESSED with...espicially for having a HARD WORKING, FUNNY, TALENTED, & BEAUTIFUL Aunt like you Aunty Ruby...we APPRECIATE everything you do for us!!

Our weekend...

So just a lil run down on our weekend...i feel i need to do this so i have somewhat a "rememberance" of what was done.

Friday 10/2/2009: Off @ 5p.m., got home Jayy was ready to go out to dinner w/ his lil brother Seni & wifey Ita. Made a stop to visit Dad at the cemetary where Mom was hanging out & off we went to dinner. KFC <---Jayy's fave. Now I'll have to post about this dinner...E X C I T I N G!!

Saturday 10/3/2009: Had to work @ AMEX got off at 4:30. But hooked up another computer by my desk & watched General Conference...LOVED IT!! Made it home just in time to get Jayy ready for Priesthood session. He was ready by 5:30 and off he went with Dad. I stayed home cleaned, laundry, and visited with my mom & sisters. Jayy came home & shared the messages from Priesthood...very good note taker, and did a good job with listening to all the speakers. His fave besides the Prophet who spoke about "ANGER" was Pres. Urchtdorf.

Sunday 10/4/2009: Watched General Conference ALL DAY & LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!! Ended the nite with a nice dinner, and chilled out nite just me & my Baby JaYy.

This past weekend was the best!! Despite the "gloomyness" the messages at Conference as usual hit HOME, and not just ONE talk stuck out ALL of them had messages that were needed for me starting from the Womens Conference the week before!! Funny cause the whole weekend as usual we get the phone calls or the texts or out of no where visits from Jayy's friends but each time he talked to them it amazed me to see how upfront my husband was with them on letting them know he was watching General Conference. Thankful for my mother in law & father in law in instilling and teaching him when he was a younger BECAUSE they DO REMEMBER!! Grateful for this GOSPEL!!

"Encircled in the Arms of his LOVE"

So last weekend 9/25 & 9/26 (Fri-Sat) was pretty busy with wedding's and a whole lot of running around. But on Saturday about 5p.m. it was a nice calm, peaceful next 3hrs. Time to get ready for the General Relief Society Women Conference that started at 6p.m. @ the Stk. Center. Nothing beats hearing words of the leaders to help us as women, mothers, daughters, and as sisters all in the gospel. It was great to be in attendance with my sister & the two oldest nieces, along with my Aunt & sister Morena.

All the talks hit home for me, but something I feel that really changed me was a thought that crossed my mind...."the type of women I want to be" I have made it my personal goal to "find GOOD in EVERYTHING"!! So far I have to say I've done pretty good, and the best part is....I FEEL GOOD!! I hope to be able to apply all that was said by the General Relief Society Leaders this past Women's Conference, along with Pres. Eyring.
