Monday Scott flew out to Utah to enter the MTC today! So weird to think he will be gone for two whole years! We know he will be a great missionay and will bring alot of souls happy as they come unto Christ. There was not a dry eye (well except for Matt) after he hugged us all and said goodbye. One thing Scott said to me was "Don't have any kids while I'm gone." It will be interesting to see how our family changes in two years. I admire his courage to live in a third world country. I couldn't do it.

Matt's Birthday was on the 22nd of November. He now can drive a Budget truck without paying $100. Christa had us over for dinner and I said I would bring the cake. Matt said he wanted white on white. Weeks before I decided to make him a guitar cake. So I researched it and went on to youtube and watched the video of this TV woman making this guitar cake. Afterwards I thought, piece of cake! Wow afterwards, now I know why so many wives/moms go to the bakery and order a cake! Matt kept saying, "I really don't have to have a guitar cake, just a cake will do." Nope I was going to do it. Overall I hope he had an awesome day. I am so grateful for him. He makes me laugh and is so kind to me. One thing that I appreciate about Matt is he is the brains of our marriage. He is taking some bio classes and occasionally I quiz him, the material just goes right over my head. Oh I just have to brag about this one thing. I came home from work one day and he had dinner going with laundry started. WOW!! It made my day. I am so grateful for him. Love you babe.
Matt's aunt was here from Germany and asked for a live performance. Isn't he amazing??!!! He doesn't read music just goes by listening to it and from memory.
Christa, Rita, Rachel, eight other women from church, and I went to the midnight showing of New Moon. First we saw Twilight at 9:00 while others waited outside in the cold and then waited. It was so fun and worth it. I think the second one is ten times better than the first one. Everytime Edward or Jacob would come up the audience went wild. I can't wait for the third one in June!!!!!
Back in October we went with Scott to take out his endowments in the Nauvoo temple. Matt and I went up the night before and stayed with Christa in a cute little hotel room across from the temple. Then my parents came up with Scott the next day. I LOVE the Nauvoo Temple!!!!! Everything about it is just beautiful, words can not describe it. It was so nice to get away and go to the house of the Lord.
