Halloween Pumpkins

This year's Halloween Pumpkin Carving Contest proved to be competitively creative and equally as challenging. While we all know that (our) BYU Cougar should win this year's competition, the votes have still yet to be tallied. Last year, our Bat pumpkin easily won the contest, and our hopes for a repeat victory were initially quite high. But after seeing the competition, we aren't so hopeful anymore. ha ha Anyway, here's some pictures of how they all turned out. Enjoy and happy Halloween!!!

1st Acceptance: Texas A&M Medical School!!!

So, sorry it has been awhile since we have posted anything. I guess we have just been caught up with school and work and everything. But we got some great news this past week...I found out that I got accepted to Texas A&M Medical School!!! They sent me an email on Oct. 15th and then I got the official letter in the mail on Friday. So that is a big relief, even though it is not necessarily my top choice. At least I know I am in somewhere. In the past month I have also interviewed with St. Louis University, the University of Iowa and UT Houston. The trip to St. Louis was pretty crazy. After my interview, I rented a car and began driving to Iowa for my next interview. Along the way, I got a rock chip in the rental car window (with no renter's insurance) and then got pulled over by a stupid highway patrol-man. he showed me the radar gun and had me clocked going 69 in a 65mph zone. Then on top of that, he decided the roads were a little wet, so I deserved to be written a ticket for 75 in a 65. It was extremely lame! So that was $200 bucks I wasn't planning on throwing out the window. Overall though, it was a lot of fun and I got to stop by Nauvoo and walk around for a few minutes. School has been extra crazy because I have had to miss so many days for all of these interviews...so I get to spend all my free time trying catch up. But it has been fun too, and has made me so excited for medical school. Hopefully I will continue to hear back from schools I am waiting on. Sami has been getting bigger and bigger, and the little baby (Cameron) is kicking like crazy all the time. Anyway, things are great and before we know it we'll have a little one running around here (well maybe just crying). Hopefully we can keep up better with posting and keep everyone up to speed. Later!
