A Quick Update

I realized today that I haven't done a thing with my blog for...oh, let's just say a LONG time. So much has happened since I last posted I'm not sure where to begin.

I'll start by saying that Tom and I have been married for 2 years now. Goodness, has it really been that long? Last month was our anniversary, and although I spent it alone (Tom was in Omaha for a conference for work) it gave me a chance to reflect on the past two years. I realized that I am probably the luckiest girl in the world. I have a wonderful husband who honors his priesthood, works hard, and is so caring. Rachel is my little ray of sunshine each day. Yes, I think I'm pretty blessed.

Tom has started school again. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I hardly see him with school, work, and homework, but that's what you have to do sometimes. He is now sporting a new goatee. It used to be a full beard, but he compromised for me. (I still like the clean shaven look best.)

I enjoy being a mom and teaching piano lessons. It keeps me busy to say the least. Last month I held the second piano recital of the year. I love seeing my students progress and get excited about their songs. The Winter/Christmas recital is all that's left for this year, and I can't wait to give my students their new Christmas songs!

Rachel has grown up so much since the last post. Not only does she eat real food, she crawls, walks, has two new teeth (soon to be three), and says some cute little words. She has a kitty toy that she loves. She takes it everywhere. She doesn't know how to say "meow," so she says "me" instead. It's adorable. Books are "boop," bananas are "nana," babies are "bebe," and she says "mom," "dad," "uh-oh," and just today she said "roar" when she saw the leopard in her jungle book. She loves books and has claimed Tom's banana chair. I love her little laugh and sweet smile.

Anyway, I'm grateful to have a wonderful family and the gospel to guide us.
