New Things

Lots of new things going on at our house. Phil started school again and is ready to get really good grades he says :) which of course he will. I started a NEW job (thank goodness) at a elementary school assisting in a reading class. The whole hosting thing was not going great and considering I am on my feet ALL day I knew I didnt want that job much longer. So far I am loving this one, I work with kids all day and get to sit down the whole time and I am busy the WHOLE day long! Hosting during the day all week long got wayyy to boring but this one keeps me soo busy and the day goes by so fast. Plus I am done in may and will have all of June off to get ready for our little miss. I also got a 3rd calling in our ward. Dont be confused though, I have been released from the other its just my 3rd calling I have had since July. Sunday school teacher, Primary teacher and now....YW advisor!! I am an advisor over the mia maids and couldnt be more excited!! Although I am still mistaken for a Young Women and not a leader its still fun. (those funny stories of me looking 18 and younger are for another post-there are many stories trust me)Maybe getting a bigger belly will help...I hope. Anyways, Phil is in Young Mens so its perfect, we both have mutual wednesday nights. So a lot of new things are going on and change is always fun.

My sister Lacey just had her baby girl Nelly on January 5 and I went to visit last weekend and took some pictures for any cousins or whomever want to see her...
This is Lacey's boy Dallan who wanted to ride the Elephant he saw when we were at dinner, he did just eat some chocolate ice cream if you cant tell.

And this is our daughters soon to be cousin/BFF Nelly Lynn Rawlings. She is so petite and girly. I cant wait!


Oh and I guess I just wanted to share some of the delicious food we had. Phil had the idea to make them one night (thank goodness he can come up with yummy meals-or we would be eating the same thing over and over which I dont mind but I am sure he gets bored of).

Before...

After...mine is the ALL meat one. No seafood here!

Nelly is so cute! Congrats to Lacey. Dallan is so freakin cute too... I can't believe he is a big brother. I'm excited for you to have a little girl. I'm sure seeing Nelly makes it even that much more exciting!!!!

For the amount of time you put into it, you get 10 times the amount of blessings. And I'm glad you found a perfect new job. Sounds fun. Glad you two are doing so well!

I'm so happy you got the job and you don't have to work with those weird people anymore! And Nelly is so pretty! (normally I don't say that about new born babies cause they look like aliens)and I think it's hilarious that you're a yw advisor..it suits you though. You'll be so fun!

Jessie said...

I saw your picture with writing on it and just had to copy the idea. It was too cute! Hope that's okay. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery!
