Life is Ironic

I had to laugh because one day after posting about how thankful I was for a car that worked I went out to my car to go somewhere and my car wouldn't start!  Turns out my battery needed to be charged it looks like I accidently left a light on!  At least it chould be charged and now is working good!

3. A family that loves me/and I love them
4. 18 nieces and nephews
5. Wonderful friends too many to name
6. Priesthood Blessings

8. A car to drive that works

Not Sure What To Say

Well like many times in the past I have vowed to be better at blogging, but time always slips away from me!  I don't really have much to report since my last post. I have gotten a lot of reading done, stayed up late, tried not to sleep in and of course I have been job hunting. I have had three interviews, but none of them have resulted in a job as of yet.  I knew when I graduated that it would be hard, but I guess I was not prepared for how long it has taken.  It has only been a little over a month since I graduated but it feels like forever! Don't get me wrong I am glad for the interviews that I have had, I think I would be more frustrated if I had not had anything at this point.  I am thankful for my time off and have enjoyed being lazy at times, but I feel I am ready to go back to work! If anyone know of a social work job let me know!

 I have been thinking a lot over these past few weeks as I have prepared to finish school and graduate just how fast time goes by.  I felt like I was going to be a student forever, but here I am ready to graduate with my masters degree.  I am excited for what lies ahead for me, but also a little nervous at the same time as I go out into the world of job hunting!

Halloween Pumpkin

So I have not carved very many pumpkins in my time and I decided this year I was going to do it! It took a lot longer than I thought it would but I thought it turned out pretty cool....

Special Day

After spending the week in Minnesota the Mitchells flew to AZ with us so that Clark could be baptized in AZ. Amy and her family were able to drive over from CA. I was really excited for the baptism since I don't have that opportunity very often because my family is so spread out! It was a very special day where the spirit was felt very strongly. One thing I learned about Clark is that he can really ham it up for the camera. I wish I could post all the pictures of his funny faces but I did not have the time!

More Pictures

We had so much fun together! Here are a couple of pictures of all the grandkids who were able to come! They had a lot of fun playing together.
