A trip down Memory Lane

Not originally my idea, but it seems like it could be fun. It's always nice to take a trip down memory lane and remember some of the good ol times! So, here's the game:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It could be really fun, so post away... And see if we can't have some good laughs

There is a lot of talent floating around here...

Hi everyone...
I posted some links on my blog under the title of "Talented People". These are all websites of my brothers & sisters-in laws. They have either created them or make the stuff on them. I have lots of other talented family members, they just don't have websites. :) Enjoy.

Also some fairy forts & snake bites

I had to post these pictures too. I have the cutest nieces & nephews in the world! These are from the cabin on the fourth of July weekend...we play fairies & go fishing a lot. My nephew Sam got bit my a snake...I told him he could speak Parsel Tongue now...he thought that was great! :) Kids are fun.

A working man...

Congratulations are in order for my cute husband Tom! He got a job last week. After a pretty discouraging series of interviews, he received 3 different job offers in one week! We decided to take a job at JSA architects. It seems like a pretty good fit for him and his strengths, so we are excited. We will have insurance, so I can go to the dentist again! That is probably the best news. This is a picture of Tom on the first day of work. He was being nice letting me take his picture. I made him hold the lunch I made him. I'm such a gotta love it though. :) We have been so very blessed this past little while. Even when we didn't have a "real" job, Tom's cousin gave him tons of work at his graphic design firm & he's been blessed with lots of tile jobs and landscape jobs too. My research grant has also been a blessing and has really kept us afloat for the last little while. It reminds me of a quote from President Hinckley.

"It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don’t worry. I say that to myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. … If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers."

Priesthood Session of Jordan Utah South Regional Conference, March 1, 1997

It is so true. Everything always works out. I think it is just making ourselves stay positive and hopeful while it isn't working out at the time. We might be moving closer to Tom's start screening your phone calls from us, because we might be calling you for help! :) I will post more often. I love reading all of your blogs! Thank you for all of your support and friendship. Life is good.
