Since it's Father's Day today and the weather isn't overly fantastic I thought I would take a moment and make a small post to say "Happy Father's Day" to my dad and all the men in my life who have made some impact on me... there are quite a few and I wish I had pictures of all of them so I could share them but I decided to just share a few of my dad. (I wish I had other pictures too but these are the few I found on my lap top)

Where oh where have the past few months gone? Time has zoomed by and they say spring is just around the corner- although it has been more snow/rain than sunshine lately...
The icky weather has also brought about my crafty side! I have wanted one of the super chic beaded watches for a while and finally just decided to make my own! It has been so much fun to make the watch bands to match different scrub tops, my patients love to see which one I am wearing!

Well 2010 is here and what a month it has been!! To start off the year I had 4 job interviews the first full week of the new year, and was offered 2 positions. I accepted one and I am the primary MA for a pulmonologist/sleep specialist here in Boise. I started work on the 13th and so far I absolutely love my job!

I can't believe it has already been a year and I have been a slacker in keeping our blog updated! So my pre-new years resolution is to keep the blog updated! So much has happened in the past year and I thought I would just highlight a few things...

Wow, I can't believe how long it has been since I have done a blog. September was so long ago! So much has happened since then! :0) Lets see... I am the Customer Service Manager at Franklin Covey, Aaron and I are both in the full swing of school, and we moved. Those are the big ones I guess! We have a zillion pictures to post so I will try to get them all in with some kind of caption so you know what they are.
Yesterday after Aaron and I got home from work we went over to Grandma Beal's to spend some time with my Uncle Brett and his family. My mom and sister and brother met us there with our Cousin Nora. (Lara was watching Nora while Eric and Vic were in McCall). We made ginger bread houses out of graham crackers, candy and merengue icing. It was super fun and super sticky! After we made our creations, had dinner, and played some games it was time for the munchkins to take a bath! Eliza (age 3) had been playing with a "touger" (couger aka- a plastic lion/tiger that my uncles had when they were kids) all day and insisted that the touger needed a bath too. So Brett made a " touger bath" in Grandma's sink while Eliza took a bath in the tub! :0) What a lucky touger!
This is Miss Nora Jean - she is skipping crawling- she loves to walk around instead. She was so fun to play with this past week while they were visiting from Jackson. I am so jealous that Lara got to spend the whole summer taking care of the little girl!
Gretel and I were quite the construction team! I was in charge of the pastry bag full of super sticky icing and Gretel showed me where to put it! We built a pretty fancy gingerbread house, complete with trees, fence, a pond with a waterfall and a rock path. We had so much fun turning candy and cookies into a masterpiece of construction and landscape :0) P.S. I didn't know that Aaron was taking the picture, otherwise I would have turned the right way!
Eliza wanted to make a choo-choo train instead of a house with her crackers. Her train even had a funny face on it with ears and everything! She insited on carrying it around the house until everyone saw her train. Then she passed out the left over candy until we all had some. She is such a cutie! We are going to miss having all the munchkins around to keep us on our toes and make us smile and laugh!
The day before Thanksgiving we were scheduled for Family Pictures with Tyler Cazier at Kathryn Albertson Park. It will still be a few weeks before we get the pictures back but Justin was able to snap a few afterwards. It was so fun spending time with my family, I am so glad to have such a wonderful family and a wonderful Husband who loves spending time with my family.

For Halloween we went over to my moms to carve pumpkins! It was closing night for the musical "Kiss Me Kate" at Eagle High. Justin was in the musical so he didn't get to finish his pumpkin, so we all carved different parts of it. We had a blast getting covered in pumpkin guts, even Cocoa (the chocolate lab) had fun fetching chunks of pumpkin.
While we were packing, cleaning and getting ready to move Cleo wasn't quite sure what to do with all the craziness so she frequently hid under the couch, in the boxes, and even in her paper bag! She loves the new apartment, there are lots of windows with wide window sills that she can sit in and look out and see the squirrels in the trees.

Ok, nothing fantastic to really report. It has just been a crazy week and another one is on the books! When we moved up here to Boise I applied at about a billion different places trying to find a better job-which is how I landed two home health jobs-sounds great huh? It was for about a month then my hours were cut down to 10 hours a week- I have to drive out to Eagle three times a week for a 3.5 hour shift with a patient that doesn't think she needs care... (talk about a challenge)
So, about two weeks ago one of the places I had previously interviewed with called me up out of the blue and asked if I was interested in a part time position! I said heck yes and started about a week ago. Well, my third day on the job my assistant manager quit and left just my manager and I to fill all the shifts last week and this week! UGH! So crazy! School, and two jobs that don't really go together PLUS trying to start up with Mary Kay. I think I have lost my mind!
Well, since we are now short an assistant manager my manager thinks that I would be a wonderful replacement! So on top of everything I am now trying to get the assistant manager spot.... Yup, I have officially lost my mind! But if I get the position then I will get a pay increase and some more hours so I will quite the home health thing. (I didn't exactly sign up for 10 hours a week as a babysitter- I am not using any of my CNA abilities) So I will let you know how that goes...
Now that there is a possibility of a little more income each month, we are thinking that we should move. Our lease is up in November so we will see what we can find. We aren't really fond of our present apartment other than the fact that I can walk to school. But I think I will opt to drive to school and feel a little safer. We didn't quite realize what we were moving into when we signed up- if we knew what we know now we probably wouldn't be here. So back to hunting for an apartment! :0) I love looking for apartments!
Well, Have I bored you all to tears? I hope not... but I will stop now. Besides- I should tidy up a bit and think about getting to bed a little early! I hope you all are having a fantastic day/week/month! Loves!!! :0)

Happy end of summer! I have been in school at Apollo for two weeks now and I LOVE it! I was able to transfer some of my credits from ISU so my class load is a little lighter. Aaron has been at BSU for about a week and is enjoying it so far. :0)
A couple of weekends ago we were supposed to go on our last camping trip of the summer, but there was a nasty fire where we were supposed to go so we decided to stay home and help clean out my mom's garage. We are storing some boxes there so we figured we could help out! We built some shelves, rearranged, and cleaned off the food storage shelves we built a few years ago. Grandpa Beal came over to help, so with Mom, Grandpa, Aaron, and I it went pretty fast!
This weekend Aaron and I have to work a little so we don't get to go anywhere fun. The weather has been super nice here in Boise so yesterday we decided to paint our apartment! Our Land lord said it was okay as long as it was "neutral accents"... So we have "chocolate milk" brown in our living room and dining room, a sage green in the bedroom, and sunny yellow in the bathroom! It has been so much fun to paint and re-arrrange our little apartment! We have some before and after pics! I don't know how well you will be able to see the colors...
