Once again, it has been way too long since I have posted. I have just a few minutes to play catch up so I will do that now while I have time. Chris and I had a great Christmas. We were able to spend lots of time with family. It was kind of a quiet one this year with my parents gone. And because Stew, Robyn and the girls were here for thanksgiving, we missed them too. So a little quiet but so nice nonetheless. We spent New Years Eve with our friends Katie and Jeff and family. we had a great time with them eating lots of yummy food and playing games till midnight.

I am starting nursing school in just a few days. I am so very excited about my new adventure but also nervous. I know my time is going to be very limited and wont have much time for fun anymore. It will be tough but so worth it in the end. It has been such a long time of waiting and now I can't believe its so close. I had my orientation on Thursday and bought all my books. They will last the whole 2 years but looking at the huge stack is very intimidating. There are like 10 or 12 of them. I even have work to do before class actually starts!

I just want to say real quick how lucky and grateful I am for my sweet husband. We are coming up on our 6 year anniversary next week. He is definitely my most favorite person and my best friend. He has always been so good to me and has supported me so much especially with my school. I know my crazy schedule is going to affect both of us but I know he will love me even when I have to ignore him in order to study. I am so grateful for all he does for me and I hope he knows how much I love him. I am so happy for the amazing 6 years we have had so far and I'm so excited for our future.

I'm also so grateful for the rest of my family and friends and the support they have given me. We are still serving in Gila Bend and absolutely love it. I know that we are growing so much closer to eachother and also to Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ. it has been such a blessing to us. I feel like everything is falling into place right now, especially with starting school. I am definitely where I am supposed to be right now! I feel like I need to apologize in advance for not having as much time for my family and friends in the next few years...I'm sure there will be times when I'm not a very good friend. But I will be back as soon as I graduate :) This post is definitely centered around school but thats all my brain has been thinking about especially the last few weeks...its already consuming me and I haven't even started!! Hopefully I still have time to update the blog every now and then. I barely do now, but I have a feeling it will be even less frequent now...sorry! And hopefully next time I will have some pictures. My camera got left at my father in law's house at Christmas and I haven't been back to get it yet. hopefully that happens soon though. hope all is well with everyone for now and that everyone is having a great new year so far.
