So we went to Utah with my parents on Tuesday through Thursday this past week. The main reason for the trip was so Damon could take his placement exams to get into the nursing school he wants to go to. Good news, he PASSED! WOOHOO! I was beyond relieved and overly excited for him, I couldn't be prouder. Now all we have to worry about is getting the school loans. Which hopefully our prayers will be answered. If all the funding works out looks like he will be starting on Feburary 16,2009 and ending in September 2010 with his associates in nursing. This is an accelerated program. The school is in Draper, Utah, so we would be moving back to the husstle and busstle of Utah. After living in a small town for so long, I'm not sure how much driving around I will be doing at first.

Living Room...

These photos are mainly for my sister. My parents remodled there living room and my sister has been asking to see photos of it. Here you go Emma, its hard to tell the paint color in the photos but it is kind of a muted green. It looks really nice, oh and we repainted the brick around the fire place, which makes it look much better. If you want a really good view of it, you and Betty should just come and see it for yourself. Oh and I was going to post a picture of the snow but it has pretty much already melted.

Funny Faces...

Olivia is the queen of funny faces, I really think she could be an actress with all the expressions she makes. The other day I found her sitting in front of the mirror just making faces. It was so funny to watch. Oh how I love this little girl and the joy she brings to my life. She always puts a smile on my face.

Yes, that is right, snow! Lakeview recieved its first dose for the season, probably about 2 inches. Livi was so excited to see the snow that she kept on saying, "its raining snow mommy, its raining snow". Hopefully this doesn't mean that it is going to be a bad winter. I'm not sure I could handle that again this year.
