There is my completed project. I wish I would have taken some pictures of all the others. We all did the same set of blocks, but had different patterns of paper and different colors of paint so they were all different but all way cute.
After a day of feasting, Chris and I put up the tree and Christmas decorations, and I must say it all turned out pretty cute. Susie momma gave us a nativity set as an early Christmas gift and it definately made everything complete!

*started school *chopped my hair off *funeral *spent countless hours studying for the PCAT *drove to Missouri *another funeral *saw my brother and lots of other family *cried a lot *laughed a lot *got sick *got bronchitis *took the PCAT *got a calling. All the while in between enjoying work, spending time with my man and my family. If you are interested in hearing the long version here it comes. If not stop reading now.
Started school...Not much else to say about that. Chris hasn't really enjoyed his start at the U of U, but he's doing well. It just doesn't compare to Snow College.
I chopped my hair off...Susie made me do it! ;) I was just sick of the old hair due that I've had since junior high so I chopped it all off.
This is not the best picture of me...but hey you can see the new do.
Funeral...Chris's Grandmother passed away in September. The funeral was beautiful. It really made me thankful for the gospel in my life. The knowledge that I have of the wonderful things that are waiting for us after this life is such a comfort.
PCAT... I didn't do so good the first time, so I studied a lot harder this time. I hope I do better than I did before. I feel like I did, but you just never know with those stupid tests. I should be finding out in about 2 weeks.
Grandma and Grandpa Turley
My grandpa had a heart attack, and was a in the hospital a few weeks. He would be doing pretty good one day, and then not so good the next. They thought he may be able to get well enough for surgery, but he never did. Grandma and Grandpa decided it was best to go home with Grandpa on Hospice care. He was much happier at home than in the hospital. After a week or so of being home he passed on. At first we didn't think we would be able to make it to the funeral in Missouri, but it all worked out in the end and Chris, my mom and dad, and I drove to Missouri. It was great because we got to see a lot of cousins that we haven't seen for awhile. Not to mention my brother made it from Georgia. It was a really beautiful funeral as well. I have never cried so much at a funeral. Not because I was sad, but it was a really spiritual experience. I think that my Grandpa would have wanted it that way. He was such a good example of how to live a good, fulfilled life. One thing all of his children and grandchildren agreed on was that he had a way of making all of the kids feel special like they were his favorite. Which is not an easy task when you have 13 children and 66 grandchildren with I think 18 great grandchildren. He really was an amazing person and he will be missed.

Grandpa Urry's House
Our camp on the left and the beach down the stairs on the right
One of the day's we drove to La Jolla Cove so that the guys could scuba dive, but the waves were a little rough that day so there wasn't much scuba to be had, but we did have a good time anyway. We also dressed into matching outfits and took a few family photos. (seen at the beginning the entry)

I got out of the car and shut the door. Thy then says, "Where are your keys?" Then I turned around and desperately tried to open the already locked door, but it was no use. Luckily we were close to my mom's house who had a spare key. Then I look down and notice that I don't even have tennis shoes on. I had forgotten that I was just wearing flip flops, so we can't work out at the gym anyways! We decided to just go back home after my mom saved the day with the spare.
Later that evening Chris and I decided we wanted to take our fixed car out for a spin and.... IT WOULDN'T START! That was the final straw. I tried to be happy and just laugh all the other stuff off, but I was just angry now. We took it back to our friend the next day to check it out, and it needed a new starter. While he was fixing that we told him to replace the timing belt while he was at it. That ended up being another pretty costly repair.
Then later that night we were trying to replace the burnt out headlight on the car, but even the new bulb wasn't working. Oh great, now there's a costly electrical thing going on. Turns out it was just missing a fuse in the fuse box. After about an hour of dinking around under the hood we finally figured out that that was the problem.
10:30 pm last night we finally had all the problems fixed and we now have a working car without any problems! I hate cars!
