And So I Go

The last two Sunday's I have had the privilege to speak in church. Usually this may be strange but not in my case because It is getting so close to when I leave on my mission to Birmingham, Alabama. I am so excited, a little bit nervous, and very Surreal. I cannot believe it will finally be here in a week and a half. Here are some pictures of my farewell's and  a few others more to come soon.

I'm 21

So Last Monday was my 21st Birthday and boy I got to say It was a great one. I have some really great friends who truly love me. I started the day out with working till 5 am and then I came home and slept till about 11 and then I got ready and went out to lunch with my girl Carlie at The Cheesecake Factory. Best food ever and of course we got a slice of Oreo Cheesecake to top it off I was in heaven for sure. Then we went and I met her good friend Karrie and her kids and went home and took a nap. I got up and played with my cute nephew for a little while and then went to dinner with some friends to Red Lobster I got a big special drink that is of course non alcoholic and some great food. Then we went back to my house and had more cheesecake. My good friend Cade then came over and played some of his songs to us and Romney and Corey came over as well and Corey played a song later on as well Over all great day and wonderful people. Love you all and here are a few fun pictures that I have from the big day.

Goodbyes

This Past week my mom and I went to Saint Louis To help my sister Karalee and her family Paul and Zoey move and we did some really fun things and then Said our goodbyes. It was particularly hard for me because I will not get to see them for a few years and I just love Karalee so much. Karalee is my sister just older then me and I have always looked up to here and all that she has done with her life. Her example is a huge part of why I am going on my mission witch is kind of Ironic sense she is the only person in our family who didn't go on one but her Strength and example has meant more then anything. Thank you so much Karalee.

My good friend Heather got her mission call the same day

I Love Family

almost a week ago my oldest brother john was here with his family and it is always fun to see them and play with the little rascals when they come, however it isn't very often so we love to soak it up while there here. We did a lot of exciting things we had a fun dinner when they got here Wednesday night and then on Thursday they went to the temple while a family friend and I babysat the kids. then we had family pictures taken that night. On Friday I had to work the grave but had the night off so I stayed home and slept while everyone else went to the pool and then we had a huge extended family and some friends BBQ it was so much fun after everyone left all the siblings went to the new movie inception, which is amazing and you all must see it. Then we all went to bed late so our morning plans got delayed a bit but we had a  big breakfast and was off to salt lake city for the day to go to temple square and had lunch at the gateway. It was a blast to see all of the John and Sarah and the kids one last times before I go on my mission and I am grateful for my family and I love when we get to spend time together I will truly miss you all when I leave on my mission of course here are some funny pictures I took and I will keep you all posted on my mission call witch should be here tomorrow or Thursday.





















I guess aunt Jennie wanted a nap just as badly as Zoey huh.

Eventful weekend

This past weekend was a big one for me. On Friday I went to see a movie with my girlfriend Carlie so of course we saw the new eclipse movie. It is definitely the best one of the three. On Saturday it was the third and sense we live in Utah we celebrate the whole weekend when the 4th is on a Sunday. We went to my sister's apartment and had dinner there and they stayed there and watched the fireworks but I went to my friend's house for the fireworks and to here some of his new songs that he wrote. They were wonderful and I will post some of them. There were some interruptions but you can still here the song. On Sunday it was kind of a hard one sense it was the second year sense my dad past away and I had my final interview with the stake president. It went well but the whole thing made me feel very vulnerable and when that happens I get nervous and need to get up and speak. Normally not a reaction you have when that happens but I do. So I went up and boar my testimony that day and I really felt like nothing came out the way I wanted it to. That tends to happen a lot to me so I'm used to it but I just wish sometimes it wouldn't. After church we had dinner and went to my dad's grave where we took pictures I will post some of thous as well. I then got to go to work. Normally that would be a nice thing but sense work has been harder for me lately and with the attitude I had going into it I got really emotional about things that night and it was really hard. I told myself that I would try to make the next day better at work and it was a little bit. mainly because it was two staffed and not just me but after work that night I got to go to this party at my friend Katrina's house and I went with Christine so it made it even better i love celebrating this holiday but sometime during the day I think about what it would be like to be one of the men or woman that goes out and really helps on the front lines, even just helping the people on the front lines. Then I ask how can I help them and make it better we should all try to improve things just in our own comunity everyday so I hope that I will be able to take my own challenge and do this i'll keep you updated on it ocationally. Oh and p.s. My mission Paper's are offically in now I guess we will see when they come if you have any guesses let me know.

Each Life that touches Our's for good

This past week has kind of been a hard one for me I work both Sunday and Monday nights at my job and if you hadn't herd what I do before i work for a company called chrysalis that has a lot of different homes filled with wonderful and very special grownups. Well one of these guy's that I work with past away this Tuesday morning. I saw him Sunday night before he went to bed and then I came in on Monday he was still at the hospital because he went in for an early and simple procedure and they were waiting for him to wake up. His body however did not respond the way it should have. When I woke up on Tuesday morning I got a text message from my boss saying he developed pneumonia that night and we were to prepare for the worst. I asked her if we could visit and she gave me the info to where he was. I was getting ready to go see him when I got another text that said he passed away a few minutes before. I didn't believe it. I know we are supposed to not get to attached to them and that this happens but to an extent if you don't get attached then your probably not doing your job just right(Not that I am perfect at my job, because I know I'm not). I got to work with this individual closely at special Olympics this year and it was a blast. I will really miss him but I'm really glad I have had the chance to get to know him. Here are some pictures of him and us at work. I will truly miss you randy and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your life and learn so much about you and yours.

summerfest.

Summer fest was a blast this year I got to volunteer for it sense my old institute teacher that I have known for years now asked me if I could help. I got to check in anyone who actually decided to come do what they where supposed to for there flouts or car's for the big parade. Then I joined in the festivities with Carlie and it was exciting we went on the fares wheel and watched the fireworks over all great night and very exciting. Here are some pictures of me and Carlie and a little glimpse at how scared Carlie actually got on the ride.

Zoey's Birthday

It was my wonderful niece's birthday on Saturday and we celebrated by going to the zoo. It was so much fun going up with my mom, sister and my nephew. He is just quite the fun and goofy little boy. He kept saying grandma where's the zoo throughout the hour drive and when I would respond he said that's grandma I would proceed to say I know but grandma is busy right now. When we got up there we met up with the birthday girl and her parents. Even though the wind and a few drop's of rain where there we didn't keep us from having fun. we got to see lots of the animal's and ride on some fun animals as well. We had a great time at the zoo. Later that night I couldn't stay for cake and ice cream because I told one of my old institute teacher's I would help his wife out with the summer fest so that's where I was after the zoo and then I went and had some summer fest fun with Carlie again. Of course I have pictures and video's to share so enjoy. video
