I need your help!!!

So, as most of you know, I just finished the dental assisting program at MATC. I am currently working at the Utah County Government Building in Provo and doing my internship at Dr. Brown and Easton's office. I recently was told that I was being let go at the county building since I'm only an intern. I am desperately trying to find a job as a dental assistant. So, if any of you know anyone who is a dentist or who is hiring or even who is an assistant or hygienest at an office PLEASE let me know!!! Since the economy is so bad right now, there aren't very many places hiring and a lot of places want experience, but the question is, how do you get it?! So please, let me know of anything you hear of! Thanks everyone!!!

Thanksgiving and then some!!!

This was a great thanksgiving. My parents and I met my brother and his wife and their baby and her family at the Marriot in Salt Lake. This is the best idea for thanksgiving-no cooking or cleaning! And DELICIOUS food! The only downfall is, no left overs. Thank goodness for an amazing mom! After stuffing ourselves, we went home to digest our food so we could go to my aunts house later for pie! That was yummy and great company! It was a very fun day. The day after thanksgiving, we put up our christmas decorations and made gingerbread houses. That's ome of my favorite traditions. That night I went with Brad and his family to the light parade in Spanish Fork and that was cold but fun. Then we went to the Pizza Factory for dinner and then to Salem Pond to see the lights.

Me and Bradley!
All of us: Amanda, Grandma Bradford, Alyssa, Laraine, Ashli, Kim, Me

The bridge looks so pretty. I love this picture.

Then on Saturday my mom, sister, sister in law and I all went and saw Twilight. I loved it! And I think Edward is very good looking! I wished for more though! I can't wait for the next one to come out!

I am so thankful to my wonderful family. I have been so blessed to be in a family that is so sweet and caring and would do anything for me. I have been blessed with the most amazing parents and 3 very wonderful older siblings with incredible spouses. I love spending time with them and their kids! I love them all dearly!

Blackhawk... again!

Sorry, I know you're probably sick of hearing about Blackhawk and you probably think that's all I ever do. But, this is my third time going to this summer. The first time was with my ward, the second time was labor day with Brad's family, and this time was with Brad's family as well. Brad and I drove up friday night right after he got off work and met his parents up there. We had pancakes for dinner with DELICIOUS homemade rasberry jam that we all scarfed down! Then, Brad built a fire and we just sat around it. It was a beautiful night and the stars are always so pretty up there. The next morning, we rolled out of bed and were just lazy. While breakfast was being made, Brad and I went on a walk around the loop. It was GEORGEOUS!!! The leaves are changing colors up there and words can't describe how pretty it is up there. It is searously breathtaking. Then, after a delicious breakfast, it started raining off and on so we waited till it stopped and dried so we could go cut wood. That was the point of this trip. Was to get wood for the winter. While we were waiting for it to dry, we played games. Then, it dried up and we headed to get wood. The best part was the drive and seeing all the pretty leaves! After getting the wood, Laraine (brad's mom) and I read our Twilight books and Brad did homework. Then I took a nice little nap:) Then we got dinner ready and had BT's (we had no lettuce) and they were yummy! Then, we played more games! Then we made another fire and brad and i had s'mores! Then, Kim and Dave (Brad's sister and her husband) and their 3 girls suprised us and came to join the fun! They were originally supposed to come, but they had lots to get done! Then we all just hung out! We were glad to have them there! The next day we woke up and had another yummy breakfast! Then brad and i went on another walk around the loop. Then we took tons of cute pictures of his cute nieces. Then his other sister and brother in law, Traci and Jethro and their 2 little girls came up just in time for dinner! After dinner, we all just sat in the trailor NOT wanting to go home. I still don't want to be here! You would all understand if you've ever been there. It's AMAZING! I'm having some serious Blackhawk withdrawls! I miss it. But, we'll be going back soon!!! Thanks, Brad and Sheen's for the great time!:) Here are some pictures from the event!

Labor day weekend: Heber Valley Camp and Black Hawk

Heber Valley Camp
This was the best Labor Day i've ever had!. It was full of nonstop camping! First, on Friday, Krista, Sadie and i headed up to Heber Valley Camp for a Sundberg family reunion. It was beautiful up there. I had heard a lot about it, but never been there. It was nice to have cabins to sleep in and bunk beds. This is my kind of camping. After getting everything settled, we made dinner. Then we took the kids, Halle, Gray, Easton and Keagan on a walk. We saw some deer and the kids loved it. Then, the kids wanted to sing some songs, so, beind the girls camp experts that we are (my mom, liz, ashley and myself) we started to remember some songs we sang. One of the songs we remebered was "The Princess Pat" the kids LOVED it and we had to sing it a few times. Then we made a fire and sang it more. The next day we went on a hike with everyone and hiked all the way to the top of the mountain. The kids loved it! We then relaxed and waited for all the guys to get back from golfing. Then my uncle Kent cooked delicious TURKEY BURGERS. Yum Yum:). then we had dutch oven sticky buns and made s'mores. I had the brilliant idea (thanks to Brad) to tell shelly to bring reeses to have with our s'mores! We had to put the fire out by 8:00, but being the rebels that we are, kept it going. A missionary came and we got in trouble and had to put it out. So, since we were freezing and didn't want to go to bed yet, we went into one of the cabins and played cards. The next morning we woke up to my mom's sourdough pancakes! Then i got ready to leave so i could get home to head to blackhawk with brad. Everyone else went to the confidence course. Here are a few pictures from the event.

I got home from heber valley on saturday and took a shower and got ready to go to blackhawk. Brad's mom's side of the family goes here every Fathers day and Labor day. They've been going for about 30 years. brad and i headed up there around 12:00. We got there and the first thing we did was go see our tree and take a picture! i LOVE it:). Then, we hung out in the camper for a while and talked with his family. Then, we went on a hike and we had no idea where we were for a while! Then we came back and got brad's niece alyssa and went to devil's kitchen. It was sweet! Then we got back in time for dinner and we had yummy hamburgers and corn on the cob. Then brad and i cut wood and made a fire. We roasted marshmellows and had s'mores with reeses of course! Then the wind started blowing really hard so we hurried and put everything away before it blew away. Then, sunday morning we had a delicious breakfast. Pancakes and eggs and ham. The Sheen's don't mess around. After breakfast, we went on a hike with brad's brother jeff and his daugher stevie and brad's niece amanda and their cousins kayla and emily. We went to where they want to build a cabin it's called "the cabin site" it was a fun hike. then, when we got back we watched the little kids launch water baloons! They loved it. Stevie, Amanda and Kayla loved being the targets. Then we just relaxed and got ready to eat dinner. Laraine made delicous chicken! and we had carrots and fruit! then we had dutch oven pupmkin cobler and choclote and cherry cobler. yummy! it started getting windy so we were all hanging out in the camper. then, we looked outside and the clouds were rolling down the mountain. it looked like smoke, it was crazy! we all had to go out and watch it! it was freezing! that night it rained and hailed all night long! Good thing we were in the camper! I loved this camping trip, it was amazing! More pictures:).

Our tree! It's still there and still going strong!
This is a much better picture than we took last time. and i LOVE brad's shirt!
