Happy New Year!

I know this is a very belated entry, but better late than never, right?

I've started a new job, and hence the tardiness of updating the family blog. I am now a Labor and Delivery nurse at Intermountain Medical Center. I am quite excited about this. I meet each new day there with much joy and quite a bit of nerves. After 14 years in the NICU, I am out of my comfort zone. But I look at this new career path as a way to keep my old brain and neuron connections sharp. 

My favorite part of the job: being able to be with these parents as they bring a new life into the world. The labor process is not always smooth sailing, but the end result never ceases to amaze me. It just proves my point beyond a shadow of a doubt -- there IS a God, a Heavenly Father who loves us and wants nothing but happiness for us.

Enough waxing philosophical for me. Here are some cute pictures of two of my biggest and brightest blessings in my life; they are the bright spot to the end of a busy night at work. There is nothing more rewarding than coming home to these darling angels who love me and are so excited to see me. Needless to say, the feeling is mutual.

We lit sparklers and threw Pop Its for New Years Eve. What better way for a six-year-old and a three-year-old to ring in the new year!
