This morning Logan, Brad, and Cameron all went shooting up in Bountiful at a shooting range. Logan had a really good time, and i was able to clean up the kitchen, and scrapbook a little. I even made Banana Bread, gotta send some pictures of it its funny! lol... dont ask ill just show you. Anywho... Logan did his shooting already so it was my turn. I took Jamie's and Cameron's Engagment photos today. Session one, im taking more tomorrow with better light. I was thinking today that i would really like to start my own business of photography, and designing annoucments, greeting cars, etc. Im thinking of a name now... im not sure what to use as my name... i dont know if i just want to use "Laura McGee Photography" or something way different that someone will always remember? i have no clue! lol a little help here! anywho.. here is one picture of the happy couple.

Lastnight i woke up at least 10-15 times! im so tired this morning that when Logans Alarm went off i thought it was mine and i started to cry. I have no engery to walk to work, let alone take care of a bunch of kids! Yesterday was so hard! I get to work and my co-worker wasnt coming in because she had to study. So they were going to have other people come in and help me because the ratio of children to adults is 4 to 1. Well some other co-workers are sick so they had to call mine in and she wasnt happy about that, let alone we got a new child in our class with no notice and she never has been away from her mom before so that wasnt any fun what so ever! So we had 7 kids, then one went back to the infants (she is just turning one) and then during naptime two paretns came and picked up their kids so my co-worker went home and i had four to myself. Eventually and quickly it dwendled down to only one kid by 4:30! i was shocked and amazed and then the next thing i knew, the last kid was picked up by 5pm! seriously this hardly ever happens!! So i went and helped out in the infant room until all of the babies were gone and i went home at 5:45pm and chilled on the couch waiting out my migrain which is still here this morning, alone with a HUGE stomach ache!! arg! oh well its life right? hee hee anywho well i have to go and get ready for work today! have a wonderful day everybody!

At the daycare i work at there is a little girl in the two's class that looks exactly like me, so i showed everyone the picture to prove it and it may not be exactly but its pretty dang close. like this kid could pass off as mine any day! lol.. anywho well i have to go get dressed for work, but i felt like i was lacking in the picture department... oh tonight im going to make banana bread! im way excited! i want my apartment to smell super yummy!! anywho talk to you later! :)

How cool is it to have dinner, a movie and dessert for only 10bucks? i was pretty dang excited! lol.. there is a local pizza resteruant here that holds a deal called "Beat the clock" which means from 6pm until 8pm the time you call in and order is the price you paid. Lastnight i called in at 6:05pm and got a 14inch large 3topping pizza for only 7 dollars after tax and a charge to use my card. We ate at home, then thought we had time, lets go to the dollar theater. Which is usually 1.50$ which is only 3bucks for logan and I to see a movie. well on Tuesday its only a dollar, and we were just in time to see dukes of Hazard, which is a awesome movie! LOVE IT!!! After the movie we hit up McDonalds and i got an icecream cone, which we shared. so after everything it was 10 bucks for a wonderful evening. We have a dirty house, somewhat unpacked, and garbage to be taken out, but there is only so much you can take of it until you need a break. Lastnight was really what we needed. This morning i woke up on time, put a load of laundry in the wash, did all the dishes, cleaned up the kitchen table, and gather trash to be taken out when i get home. It was nice to get things done so early in the morning, but now im tired! lol chasing after 5-6 toddlers isnt as easy as we all think! lol anywho not much else to talk about though... just sitting on my lunch break eating salad and left over french bread... oh yeah guess who is cool? yeah me!! on monday i made my own homemade fetechine noodles, and logan made alfredo sauce... oh made so good! i got pictures ill post when i get time! well i better be on my way! love and miss you all!!!

a funny story! So Logan and i got tickets to the BYU game like you all already know. On saturday we got up, got our internet and cable hooked up and ate breakfast. I checked online to see what time the game really was at about 1:30pm and it said 5pm est. so we were like 3 our time lets go! so we ate the rest of our breakfast and ran out the door, we got there late at 3:15pm and there are no cars! we saw a parkinglot attendant and i rolled down my window and asked what time the game started, she said 8pm. we were 4 1/2 hours early! lol. we went to the mall there and i finally found my fall/winter candles! since i have moved here i wanted to get candles to fill the entire house with warm comforting yummy smells, and i couldnt find the right one, until we went to this store called FOR EVERY BODY and they have SO many candles!! and they are highscented!! i got GingerBread! and then i also got a 26oz candle for 3 bucks! originally 18 Dollars! its called Birthday Cake and it smells just like a cake, not like a crappy smell, but it smells exactly like it!!! im so happy i got it on sale!! anywho.. then we went to ross and i got a new pair of chuck taylor shoes! lol... more yes i know but they were only 10 bucks and they are all leather! ill take a picture!! anywho... then we went to AppleBees to get an appetizer for dinner. Here in Utah you can sit at the bar, doesnt matter your age! Its because they only serve beer. So we sat there and avoided the 20 min. wait. We Went to the game and we were in great seats! Logan patiently explained to me the rules when i questioned a few or alot of times what was going on lol! but i got it and they won!! go BYU Cougars! lol... anywho well i have to go to work! eek! i better really go! talk to you later!!!!

I am Alive! Long time i know, but things have been a little crazy here. Its offical! i have been out of my parents house for over a week, and its crazy! i miss my parents like id never imagined, i miss my family so much. Its nice to get calls, i know i dont call enough, but between work, getting sick, unpacking, and trying to catch my breath and relax so i dont get sicker, its been a little crazy! So far, my apartment is probably 1/2 way unpacked. the living room is offically unpacked, only got to put together the entertainment center (but thats going to be in a few weeks) the kitchen is pretty much there, just a little here and there to do but for the most part its done. The Spare/computer room ha! thats another story! we have a path to the laundry room, but hey thats a start! Our bedroom is okay, some boxes, but those are clothes we only wear once in a while like church etc. and those are in boxes and just need to be put into closets. Bathroom is done, and set up and lookin good... the green tub is growing on me. I like it! its unique, funky, and fun! i like it. Our Animals are doing great! Flipper is doing wonderful! enjoying the banana's. Misplaced his catfood, so he gets his favorite besides kiwi's.... Logan loves his job! his boss loves him, and his supivisor is transfering into the office, and they are preparing to put Logan as the new Supivisor! how neat? He works alot though, kinda sucks but he gets overtime money and thats nice. He goes to work an hour early and stays a few hours late, but since he worked so late one night his boss is taking us to a BYU game! how awesome! im going to a college game im so excited! As for me, i love my Job! I'm the assistant teacher for the toddlers (1yrs) at C st Child Care. I lOVE IT! I walk to work, usually walk home for lunch, and then walk back to home after work. i get of at 6 and its nice. I already got sick on the 3rd day here. A bad cold virus thing was going around, and of course i got it. But its cool. The weather is changing quickly! Its blue skys and sunny, but freezing cold though, but its nice. Over the week we have been here it has been rainy about 3 days of it. Reminds me of home. I miss washington alot, all the green trees, the water everywhere, the humidy! But Utah is good. I love living out on my own, but i often find my self wanting my mom! I cant wait until her and even maybe my dad can come visit! Show them around SLC, cook them dinner in my own apartment!! I miss my sister alot too. I use to be able to just drive 45min and see her, scrap with her, and hang out with the kids, but i dont have that anymore. i dont have many friends here either. I have some that moved here awhile ago, but i dont see them much, and its kinda sad. But its bringing Logan and i so much closer and its nice. Its helping us so much!! i love it. Im doing good though, i mean its hard, but i know i can do it! oh anyone ever had a TB test? A Tuberculosis test? yeah those are sucky! lol i had to get one for work today, its just a pinch, then your skin has a little bump under it, and then it goes away and it sucks! I dont really like needles alot though either, but it was okay. Anywho.. well its lunch time im going to go! miss you all so much! i will have internet saturday! Im usuing works right now! talk to you later gators!! I MISS YOU ALL
