First Snow!!

Well we had our first big snow storm on Sunday. I was kind of bummed. We were supposed to go to my cousins baby blessing out in Tooele but the snow came and we decided that it would be more safe if we stayed home. So we took the dogs out to play in the snow, along with our friends Julie and Aaron and their dogs. They just got a new puppy! He is so cute. He is 8 weeks old and already weighs about 30 pounds!! He is a Saint Bernard and the cutest cuddle bug. He is making me puppy hungry again, but there is no way we are having three dogs right now. So anyways, us four and our four dogs went to play in the snow and I decided to take a few pictures for all of you.

Receiving my Certificate from Jackie and Uncle Mike

Receiving my Radiology License from Jackie and Uncle Mike

Our Graduation Cake

My Radiology License!

My Dental Assistant Certificate!

Well I finally did it! I graduated and I am now a certified Dental Assistant! I am so glad that school is over with. But at the same time I am sad. I have really enjoyed spending the weekends in Tooele with my Aunt and Uncle's family. I always had fun with them and I am going to miss that. So for school I had to pass off certain skills, and do 150 hours of internship and observation in order to receive my certificate. There were only five people in my class that made it to graduation, and only two of us that finished everything and got our certificates. I was so excited that my hard work had finally paid off. I had great teachers and it was a great learning experience for me.


Jonah and I had a good Thanksgiving. We were invited to his Grandma Richmond's house to have dinner. It was very crowded but the food was really good. During this time of year I am reminded how blessed we really are. I am so thankful for so much in my life. I am thankful for the family I have and the amazing husband that puts up with me. I am blessed with wonderful people all around me. I am blessed to be able to have a job and a roof over my head. It's amazing the things that we can take for granted. I will admit that I am not perfect in appreciating the things I have but I am trying to be better. I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
