Lawrence Welk Show....San Marcos Style!

The San Marcos Ward had its annual Ward Talent Show last month. When my friends wanted to perform a crazy, yet hillarious skit from SNL. I of course couldn't miss out. Our skit is the SNL Lawrence Welk show (found on Will Farrell). You have to watch the original you will die laughing. I was girl #1. It was a little embarassing to sing solo parts...but so much fun. Plus I loved having HUGE hair...thanks Jamie!!! We actually had a few practices before hand to make sure we did it just right. Plus our freind Paul is amazing on the piano and he listened to the music once then was able to play the piano for us. Unfortunently my camera battery died so I didn't get a video...but someone in my ward did and I am trying to get my hands on it.
This is us after...we forgot to take a picture so we quickly got back in our outfits...thats why we look a little disheveled!
Casey (Will), Kelly (weirdo girl), Aly (girl #2), Kevin (Lawrence), Paul (our amazing accompanist), Me (girl #1), and Jamye (girl #3)

Miracles do happen.....

For those of you who didn't know....

I got a job!!!!!!

I started last Friday and I am loving it. I am so happy because this is the job I really wanted to get...and I did!!! Horray! There are a million new things for me to learn...but it is all coming together! I am now a Family Specialist (Licensing Worker) working with Foster parents. I work with the parents to get them licensed and certified to become Foster parents, do all of thier paperwork with them, do home visits, attend meetings, teach training classes and much, much, more! I am also a liaison and advocate for the Foster parents. I enjoy knowing that everyday will be a little different. Not quite sure what a "typical" day looks like for me yet since I am still learning/training, but I am excited to find out. Today I started my own case load of families and although it is a little overwhelming I am ready to hit the ground running. Wish me luck!
