Katie's mission call (Jeff's younger sister)

This is a picture of Jeff's sisters, Katie (on the left) and Lori (on the right). This picture was taken on our cruise last January.

Today, Katie received her mission call and all the family (plus a cousin and her husband) was able to see her open it and read it. She was called to serve in the Georgia Macon Mission and will report to the Missionary Training Center in Provo on December 2. It was exciting to find out where she would be going. She gets to go to the south like Jeff did on his mission (he went to Alabama). It'll be so exciting to have both Katie and Jason (Jeff's brother) on missions.

A Very Funny YouTube Cat Video

Click on the link below, it's so funny!!

Our cat doesn't go to this extreme, but we turn on our bathtub faucet a little bit and sometimes she likes to get on her hind legs and stick one of her paws under the water and lick it.

Enjoy the video! :-)

School is expensive!!!

Well, Jeff started his semester at UVU (Utah Valley University) taking 9 credit hours while working full-time. He has a little over a year's worth of credits done (taking a class or two every now and then while working). He took the last couple years off, one reason so we could save money. I figured if he took 9 credit hours per semester for 3 semesters a year, he'll be done in a little less than 4 years. I am counting down! I'm hoping we can pay as we go (to avoid loans and interest), but we'll see what happens with that.

I am starting to slowly build up my jewelry inventory. Keep checking back here for new stuff and tell all your friends and family! I need to start making back the money I paid on materials (and to help pay for Jeff's tuition the next 3.75 years). :-)
