~Traditions I Love~

I love making english toffee, and Scandinavian almond bars with my mom and Jessica!

I love that my family gets together, reads the Christmas story, and sings Christmas carols.

I love that Santa Clause fills our dinning room table full of delicious treats that we all love.

I love watching the movies that Santa Clause brought us for Christmas and doing puzzles.

I love being with my family!

*Craft Time*

One of the things I miss most about Utah is spending time with my craft buddy, Shannon! She taught me everything I know about crafty things. She introduced me to scrap booking, taught me how to use photo shop, and most recently how to quilt. She helped me start this Americana quilt for someone special for Christmas.

Up In ThE GyM

So... Jake and I were just exploring Auburn one day and found a rec center a few blocks away from our house. We decided to go inside and check it out. Turns out that it is absolutely free to get in, and all you have to do is show a photo id. Now we run to the gym, play some racquetball, and then lift weights.

My Awesone Job!

Here in Alabama I've had to put my school on hold. I was planning on going into Dental Hygiene so I tried to get a job as a dental assistant. Most dental offices had a full staff so I applied at an Oral Surgeon's office. I got the job! I've been working there for about three months now and it's been such a blessing. The Doctor I work for, Dr. Grady, really cares about his employees and takes good care of us. For example, I had only been working for about three weeks and he had taken us out for lunch at red lobster, to the movies, to a tail gate party where we got to meet the Auburn football team and the Auburn cheerleaders, and a he gave me three weeks off of work so that I could fly to Utah for Christmas. Right now at work I have mostly been assisting in surgeries, but I have also learned the receptions desk and am able to cover if the receptionist is ever sick. Next he wants me to learn how to bill people, schedule the surgeries and work with the different insurance companies.
