From Brian...

I had a great week! I started my first log home! Our supervisor told my coworker and I that we were in charge of this log home that we laid the foundation for last week. So, this week my coworker and I laid down the first few logs with help from our superior. It's exciting!

School was going great, I had 2 A's, then one assignment that I was having technical difficulties with turned into a 0. I emailed the teacher, and she thought that I just didn't do it. I got her email late last night, so I will figure it out tomorrow...
An awesome miracle happened this week! I dropped my phone on the snow at work, and put it in my pocket, then at lunch just I figured out that it got snow in it, and the sound did not work. I tried everything to get it to work, finally I just prayed about it. While I worked from 1-4:30 I thought about ways that I could get around this issue. At 4:30 the sound worked! It was not something that I absolutely needed, but I use the sound to catch up on General Conference talks. Apparently the Lord thought that was a good enough reason to give me the sound again!
I finished scholarships last night at 11:59! Luckily the application is finished!
Thanks for all that you do for me!

Love you!

P.S. I went on an apartment date to Big Judd's! I had my 6th Hamburger! Dad, maybe you know that place because all the Idahoans know it.

P.P.S. I drove a 1970s truck for work! It reminded my of Grandpa Choate's trucks! I drove it because I was the only one that knew how to drive a stick shift.

Luke went on a field trip to the bowling alley!

Amy asked a cute guy to "Sweethearts"- a school dance!

The 31st was my birthday and I was treated to OLIVE GARDEN, the temple, homemade food, fun decorations, a beautiful cake and ice cream, and presents!  My family is the best!!!

Eric came over with the kids for dinner and we had our first ever extended family meeting with everyone calling in for a Conference call!  Also, Amy got her patriarchal blessing which was a really neat thing to happen on my birthday.  She is one incredible girl!

Amy went to a Jazz game and got this selfie stick so we tried it out!
