So this past week has been Crazy with a capital C. Not only did I work a full 5 day week but I job shadowed 12 hours, and well we added a new addition to our family. It would be fun if it was a kid but I'm happy with what we got... a new little puppy! He is an American Bulldog and is about six weeks. I've never had a dog, and to be honest I never really wanted one but I'm glad my husband talked me into it because I'm already in love!
He is a good little puppy. Likes to play and likes to cuddle when he's tired. Sometimes I'm sad that we have to leave him in his kennel for like 8 hours while we are at work...I hope he still loves us despite that. We definitely  love him and want him to be happy!

So I've decided even though I hate the snow (or should I say driving in it), I still love the month of December, and I'm just realizing that it really is one of my favorite months of the whole year. I love that one Holiday can bring so much family's the little moments that make it special. I've already had a few I can think of this year. Every Sunday we go to my parents house to eat dinner and last Sunday me and my sister put up the tree, as well as the other decorations. Jesse who was playing Call of Duty on the Xbox was not to thrilled that my sister and I were blasting Christmas music, and Casey was not all that happy that we were blasting it in his room, :) good thing we didn't care. It was fun spending time with my sister, because I don't get to do that too often. Another thing that I have loved this year happens each Sunday too. Jesse and my Dad have made a tradition to watch a Clint Eastwood movie every Sunday after dinner, so me, my mom, and my sister decided we would watch a Christmas Movie while they enjoy their manly movie. Oh and yes you guessed it those Hallmark Christmas movies, the ones that make you cry, those are what we watch and well...WE LOVE IT! I'm so excited for the rest of this month. One thing that I can't forget to mention about this month is how I'm reminded of how great the gospel is during this time when we celebrate His birth. I've really been struggling with reading my seems so crazy sometimes and I know that's not an excuse...but this month I have made a goal to read my Scriptures every night. Of course this goal will go beyond the month of December, but I know this will be a great time for me to become closer to the Lord. I want him to know I love him, and that I have a testimony of the gospel. I don't know what I would do with out it. The last thing I want to mention is how much I love and miss my mother-in-law I know this Christmas won't be the easiest without her. I miss her warm smile, miss her love for the holiday, I miss her love for the gospel, and I just miss her period. The one thing that will make this better is knowing that she is in Heaven watching over us, celebrating with us, and most of all I know she is happy!

Deborah Kay Adams

These pictures here pictures of my beautiful mother-in-law. A courageous, loving, daughter of God ;One that raised six children including my amazing husband. I would just like to share a few memories I have of her. I remember the first time I met her, it was one of Jesse and I's first dates, and I was in the car while he ran in to get something from the house, and she came walking out. I was scared I hoped she'd approve of me. She smiled at me and said hi and my fear disappeared, she was so nice and friendly. The next thing that really sticks out to me is when I was at snow college. I was having a really hard time being away from my family and being away from Jesse. Jesse being the concerned boyfriend he was told his mom, and that night she called me to give me some words of encouragement. Although I don't remember exactly what was said i remember feeling loved, and feeling important she sure had a way of making everyone feel like that. Also at snow college she used to write me letters and send me pictures of Jesse, those letters always cheered me up. Then our wedding came along and I was so happy that she could be there; it was a time where she was feeling a little better and she had a good amount of hair...she was beautiful with or without hair, but I know it meant a lot to her to have it. Another fun thing I remembered was on the first mothers day we were married she gave us a outfit for, well, our future child ha ha. Although we laughed because we were no where near having a kid, it gave me comfort that we had something from her for our first child no matter when that would be. Later on for my birthday I was also lucky enough to receive a childrens book with her voice recorded in it. What a treasure that is going to be for our family. Something that I will always remember is planting flowers with her. I had the chance to do this with her twice, and she had such a love for it. It was amazing to hear all she new about flowers and how dedicated she was to taking care of them, just like her dedication to taking care of her family. There will never be a time where I look at a flower and not think of her. There are so many other things that I could talk about, but these are just a few of my favorite. I Love her and miss her a lot, its hard to think that my children won't get to meet her in this life, but I know she is with them now, and will get to be with them until they come to this earth. What an amazing person, and an amazing example, and what a lucky person I am to be able to be part of her eternal family.

One Person...

Sometimes we don't realize how much one person can really make a difference in another persons life. Today was a good day for me I got up, got dressed, and went and ran some errands. My last stop happened to be the place where Jesse got my wedding ring. My ring has never been cleaned since we've been married and I also needed to get it re-dipped. When I walked in there was a man that came to greet me. He helped me and was very nice from the moment I came in. By the time I was done giving him my information and getting the receipt so I could come pick my ring up next week we started talking and he said something that I will never forget. He told me that when customers come in he can tell what kind of person they are by their countenance and that my husband is lucky to have me as a wife. I'm not telling you this because I think I am an amazing person or wife, nor am I telling this to brag, but I'm telling you this because its proof that there really are good people in this world. Sometimes I think there is so much rudeness and cruelness in the world, and than I meet someone like this man and I am reminded that there is just as much good. I know it was something small that he did for me, and maybe I'm making a big deal out of it, but it made my day, made me smile, and it made me feel important. All of us try our best and usually feel good about it but it's so nice to actually hear that you are doing alright from someone else.

I really need to be better at blogging...sometimes I wonder if my life is even a bit interesting to anyone else. It doesn't really matter if it is or not, because it is to me. It's also a way for me to get my feelings out and express how thankful I am for all the blessing in my life!

I'm excited I'm going to be making a huge change in my life on the 20th of this month!!! After 3 years in daycare I'm starting a new job at America First Credit Union. I felt so lucky to be chosen for the job. I have banked with them ever since I've had an account and have always been pleased with their service. Now I get to try and give that same service back!

We've loved our apartment, but we are ready to move out. Our lease is ending on July 31st and we are going to move in with two great people Kyle and Allyx. They are two of our best friends and we are very thankful that they offered it to us so we could save some money up. It will be hard to move back in with someone, but we know that it will be a good experience for us all.

I've been really struggling with school this summer semester. My mentality is that it's summer and I wanna have fun. Anyways I'm plugging along and when it ends on August 6th I will be done with school for a whole year. I'm pretty excited for that because I really haven't had a break in a while from school, and there is no reason for me to go until I get into my program since I already have my associates degree.

Life is good and I'm just so glad I get to spend it with Jesse. <3

On my mind....

 I Won't Let Go- Rascal Flatt's

I wonder what people think when they hear this song? Do they think the same things as me? Do they hear the words of a kind savior that is there for us even when we believe we are alone? It makes me think about my life. I've had many trials, and much tribulation...but when it comes right down to it I look back...and no, I was never alone.

Kids, Kids, Kids...

Let's just say this week Jesse and I had our share of kids and it was great!!! We got to spend time with some of our nieces and nephews. On Thursday night we went over to Brittany and Jared's to watch the three kids (Rylee, Parker, and Crew) while Brittany and Jared had the chance to go to the Jazz game with her Father. It was a fun night! We ate popcorn and watched Nanny McPhee. I know I'm a nerd, but I love Nanny McPhee :] . Little Crew just slept in our arms the whole time.Here is Rylee and Parker watching the movie!!

Then Saturday night Jesse and I got to take Ryker over night. I was so excited, because I used to babysit him everyday in the summer, and now I work and go to school, and don't get the chance to see him as much!!! We h
ad a really fun time. The first thing we did is make play dough!! I wanted to make the kind where you don't have to cook it over the stove, but i followed the wrong directions and ended up having to, Ryker Helped me make it!
Our Next adventure was coloring.
As you can see Ryker wanted Uncle Jesse to draw a few things on h
is. After coloring we watched a movie and Ryker was cuddled up to Jesse.

With the sleeping over part Ryker did really well. It was his first time sleeping somewhere overnight without his mom and he was a pro!!!

We had some great times this week and I'm thankful for my family :]

Life is not perfect, but it sure is worth it!

I know a have not written for a long time so I have a lot to tell!!! First things first the holidays were great! Jesse and I got to spend so much time with our families, and most importantly each other. Right before my Christmas break Jesse and I had a huge blessing come into our lives. JESSE GOT A NEW JOB! His friend Reed put in a good word for him and now he is at a job with better hours, better pay, and of course better for him because it is more in his field. He is a sheet metal fabricator as of right now. As for me I got to take a nice long break from school. During Christmas break I was also able to apply to the radiology program. Chance of me getting in aren't as high because I don't have my bio-med class done, but there is the little glimpse of hope. I shouldn't get my hopes up, but I would love to get in as soon as possible.

Two other amazing things happened. We were blessed with a beautiful niece (Evie) and a handsome nephew (Crew). The only downfall to this is that it makes me a little baby hungry :)!!

Another blessing that we had happened to us is we were able to get a new car for me, and ended up sailing the van in two hours after we posted it on KSL. My new car is a black Saturn Ion 2003. I love it and am so glad I don't have to worry about my car breaking down on me any moment. It was kind of sad to see the van go though. We've bought it when I was in kindergarten and it has a lot of memories! All in all it was defiantly for the better.My post title mentions that life is not perfect, and as we all know that we hate to admit it! This weekend we were on our way to Crew's baby blessing. We walked out side to find that the passenger window of my car had been broken out. We didn't think the person stole anything until later that night i was looking for my backpack when i realized that it was in the passengers seat the night before and that they had indeed stole it. Some of my books were in there so I've had to order new ones, but it could have been worse right? It just makes me sad that people could just do that. They don't really realize how they affect other peoples lives.

Life is good, I love my husband, my family, and the gospel. Those three things make life worth it!!!!
