Happy Birthday to Me!

Yesterday was my 27th birthday...can you believe it? I'm getting so old! It was a very good and relaxing birthday. My day began with a wonderful phone call from my little brother Brandon. He was at the airport getting ready to fly to his mission in Des Moines Iowa. It was great to hear his voice and hear how excited he was to fly to his area. Then I had to go to work but work was pretty slow which was very nice. My wonderful friend Brittney took me to lunch and after work Jared took me out to eat at one of my favorite resturants...the Olive Garden. Then we went home and had a nice relaxing evening together. I'm only 5 days way from my due date so laying around the house has become one of my favorite past times. Thanks to all of those who wished me a happy birthday. It really was a great day.

Bitter Sweet

Last Wednesday we had to say good-bye to my little brother Brandon. We took him to the MTC where he is preparing to serve in the Des Monies Iowa mission. He will only be there for 3 weeks and then he is off to serve and teach the people in Iowa. We are very proud of Brandon and his righteous decision to serve the Lord. It was hard to say good-bye but we know that his spirit will touch the lives of many people.
