New Job!

Yay for me! I have been hired by Dillards! I'll be working full time and getting benefits. Aaron is thrilled, even if it does mean he has to go to school come Spring. I couldn't be happier. I get to work with clothing and home decor, I get to help people, and I'll finally be contributing equally to this little family. Nothing is worse to me than being a burden. My dad always said "Whatever you leave undone falls to your spouse to do." I hated it when my health or my inability to find full time work left Aaron with the burden of our family's finances (and sometimes the house work too). Nothing is worse to me than feeling useless. I'm so excited to finally be an equal contributer to our well being! So friends, come to Dillards and see me! I'll help you find that dream outfit (on sale ;).

Rude Awakenings

One of the joys of working while others are sleeping is waking those slumberers in odd and interesting ways. I enjoy waking Jessica up in several ways.

For example- when Shyla was a wee kitteh I would put her on Jessica's face/stomach/arm. Let's not forget the run-in-and-belly-flop-on-the-bed. Sometimes I will throw in a flip-on-the-light-switch before ending with said maneuver.

I've done the whole "awake sleeping beauty with a kiss" maneuver. I find it to be a little too boring.

That leaves me with the infamous putting-rats-in-the-bed trick. To do this I take Velvet (she's more friendly than the psychopathic River) and place her quietly on Jessica's pillow. Velvet will then proceed to climb over Jessica's face/arm/bare flesh, which rips her from blissful slumber.

This video is not said maneuver. It is just funny.

And to think Jessica didn't like rats or have any desire to own one while we were dating...

Wedding Bliss!

Today, Aaron and I went to our cousing Joshua Baldwin's wedding to Niki Poulsen. It was fun being in the sealing room with all of our family reliving our own wedding day in our thoughts. Niki and Josh looked very happy and I wish the best for them. I remember feeling overwhelmed with happiness the day I was sealed to my sweetheart for eternity. He's my best friend and I simply can't do without him. There's nothing like kneeling across an alter and saying those sacred yeses to one another. I know Josh and Niki will always cherish that moment too.

Dad was, of course, completely irreverant. It bugs Aaron but I just find it funny to see him laughing under his breath with his brothers despite the fact that we're in the temple. He's the same way in chuch. Last sunday he gleefully made faces at me and wriggled his eyebrows from the stand. So much for the staid and wise Bishop facade he was so carefully building up.

Aaron stood behind me during the ceremony today and I could see in him the mirror in front of me. He looked so handsome. I am truly blessed to have him in my life and I was reminded of that today. Yay for being married!

Memorial Day Fun

Yes, this post is a little late.

Jessica and I went down to Kaysville and watched Kohner play soccer. I was tired, seeing as I had worked the night before. Annika and Easton (and their parents :P ) showed up towards the later half of the game. There was a jungle gym near by and fun was had by all.

I enjoyed watching polite "little" Easton saying " kyuze me" to every child he bumped into. The best was when the two sillies rode the slide.
