Thanksgiving, Christmas, New years and so much more!

Well like most of you I have had NO time to blog. Life has been so crazy. There is so much to talk about and I don't know where to begin.

I started my new job at the dental office and I love it. I am trying to learn as much as I can so when Mark opens his own practice I can be the office manager and it will save us so much money. I deal a lot with insurance companies. I am learning the ins and outs of it. It is actually nice to see how insurance companies really work. This has helped us out a lot in our daily lives. Mark is still working at Broulims, the local grocery store, while going to school full time, and serving in the Elders Quorum presidency. He is amazing. He is working 30+ hours a week while going to school. We both have full benefits for insurance now so that is some wonderful news! I feel so much better knowing that we have insurance.

Thanksgiving was a lot of fun. Mark and I went down to Utah and spent it with my side of the family. We had so much fun. Many of my aunts and uncles came to my parent's house along with both sets of grandparents. While we were there we went and looked at Christmas lights. It was a ton of fun.

Christmas was also a lot of fun. We spent it the Watts side of the family and we had a blast. This was my first Christmas away from my family but it was awesome. It was so good to be able to spend time with family. We love them and miss not being able to see them.
Just playing around!

For New Years we had a party at our house. Some of our friends came over and we played games and ate a ton of food. It was a lot of fun to celebrate the new year with some of our closest friends.

Mark and I are doing great. Mark is getting ready to start a new year of school and I will continue to work. We are excited to see what this year will bring us. We have set goals for this year and can't wait to see what is to come. We will keep you posted with the new events that life is about to bring us! I hope everyone will take the time to realize how lucky we are to be living at such a great time. This is an exciting time to live. We love you all!
