More New Pics

I thought I would post some more of our family pictures, here they are in no particular order.

Did I mention that I love how these turned out? I don't usually like pics with myself in them, but these are definitely ones that turned out well.

New Pics

We finally got our family photos taken, and they turned out great. Leslie from Memories in Raw took us out to this old sugar factory for something different and fun. I will keep posting a few here and there when I get a minute. We all had such a great time- I will absolutely be doing this again!
If you get a second- check out Memories in Raw here. I love that she doesn't just take stock photos of all her clients, they are all unique to the clients.

The Start of the End

I am excited to teach cadaver labs again this semester for the last time. Each time I do this I get nervous that I am going to forget everything, and it doesn't help that I have 25 students who just sit and stare at me and won't participate. I have to remember that they are nervous, too, and they are probably a little freaked out about being in the same room with 8 dead bodies. This is such a great opportunity for me, I have really come to understand and appreciate the human body more with each semester. is the first day of my last semester at USU! I have been here for a long time and I can't believe I am so close. I am so very excited, I hope this is a good semester (I would LOVE to have an easy one for a change!), I look forward to graduating this Spring.

After watching The Cake Boss, we had to make a cake of our own. We made a layered 4 tier cake with almond and chocolate cake layered with buttercream frosting and homemade caramel. We made our own modeling chocolate for the dots and topped it off with melted white chocolate- not too shabby!

After an amazing Christmas we had such a fun New Years! I think the highlight for the kids was our glow-in-the-dark Nerf wars. We turned out all the lights, decorated the hallway with streamers and other silly things and then haphazardly put glow-in-the-dark things around. The effect was visually cool, and was so much fun to play with the tunes cranked up.
