just an up-date

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Just a short update about our little world. Ammon is going through a Major growth spurt and is closing in on 23 pounds! He's our little tank. His new tricks include, standing on his own, gabbing non-stop, clicking his tongue, and eating a diet entirely consisting of adult foods (well the softer adult foods). He got a brand new car-seat at the beginning of the month (very snazzy) that will house his bottom clear into the booster months. Thanks Dad for the help out on that one. Jimmy is crazy busy with school. He is taking 18 credits and just started working in a lab doing mini-brain surgery on baby mice (so fun). So far he is doing well in his classes, this however is at the expense of little sleep and missed hours at work. He is in good spirits though and always has a great attitude. I scheduled to take the 2nd part of the real estate exam on wed. morning (wish me luck) I didn't pass this part the first time, by one question! Hopefully I will be successful this time. So after Wednesday everyone will have to call me "Holly Messegee, Realtor" from now on. lol. It will be a little interesting to have a title. I've also been called to serve at girls camp this summer for my stake. That should be interesting, and exciting. The theme is 'catch the spirit' and I will be called the 'team manager' for whatever age group I am assigned. Yea for baseball. Anyway, that's about it. I hope everyone is healthy and happy and lovin' spring!!!

wasn't conference fantastic!?!

I'm always sad when it's over. I can't wait to get my conference ensign and re-read all the amazing talks that were given over this last weekend. I particulalry loved Elder Holland's talk on Sat. morning and Elder Eyring's on Sun afternoon! I hope you all enjoyed that sweet spirit of conference. I know I feel compleatly rejuvinated and ready for another six months!!

adendum to the list

Jimmy has changed his mind. (I'll explain) Replace #10 U of Wisconson in Madison for University of Colorado in Denver. The change is because last years prices for the U of Colorado were $70,000. A little much for our tastes (more then Harvard!) However, this year they are significantly lower due to state assistance in funding. So, it will join the ranks with all the other schools!
