Kids Say the Craziest Things!

Paul and I teach the sunbeams at church. We have 11 kids (thankfully they don't all come every week!). They are so cute and they say the funniest things. We had our primary program a couple weeks ago and there was a practice on Saturday. Each of the little kids has a speaking part in the program. After one of the little girls said her part, she looked at me and said, "I have another line". I told her she had just said her line and it was perfect. She looked at me again and insisted that she had another line to say. I asked her what it was and she said, "It's My Money and I need it now!!!!". I was silent laughing so hard, I was crying. The other kids in my class kept saying, "Teacher, why are you laughing so hard?". For those of you not familiar with this famous line, I am attaching the link you can go to and see for yourself.

Happy Anniversary

Paul and I celebrated 7 years of marriage on October 19. I can hardly believe so many years have gone by. I think back to our wedding day and that day was and still is the best day of my life. I remember Paul picking me up to take me to the temple and how much I loved him! Coming out of the temple doors was like being a movie star. All our friends and family were there to congratulate us and so many people were taking pictures. Even though the wedding was in October, the day was beautiful and warm. It was really the most perfect day. I can't believe how lucky I am that I married such a wonderful guy. He is so loving, caring, forgiving, understanding, and PATIENT - I can be pretty hard to live with sometimes :-). Here's to 7 wonderful years of marriage and to many wonderful countless years to come........

Catching Up!

I've been getting some slack from people because I haven't posted for so long. So I thought I better give a quick update. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures for everyone to look at.

On September 27th, Paul and I went to a company bbq at my boss, Kathy's home in Draper. I just want to say how thankful I am for my job and for the company I work for. I have been with JK Ventures for just over a year now as their Controller and I enjoy every minute of it! It is such a difference from the old company I worked for (which shall remain nameless :-)). The work is challenging and fulfilling and it is nice to be rewarded for working my butt off! Paul recently joined our team as the new Asset Manager and he is loving being back in property management. If RVA Properties in Logan hadn't gone out of business after the owner died, I'm pretty sure we would still be living there and Paul would be still be working for them. It was pretty much his dream job and now he has the chance to fulfill that dream with JK Ventures! The bbq was a fun opportunity to be together with the people I work with after hours. We were actually able to talk about stuff other than work. I am so lucky to work with so many wonderful people!!

Last Saturday Paul invited some of his friends to our house for an end of year bbq. Unfortunately, it decided to snow! But that didn't deter Paul. He just put on his winter coat and cooked up some delicious hamburgers. We hadn't seen his friends Josh and Melissa in quite awhile and it was fun to see them. Nate and Mindee were the other couple that came. We actually just saw them a few weeks ago when we went to the Melting Pot with them. Which brings me to another subject........the Melting Pot is sooooo yummy! Their bread and cheese and their desserts are absolutely delicious!

So anyway, that is pretty much all I have to say for now. My family is coming down this weekend so I will probably have something to post next week.
