What have Dane and Bridget been up to over the Christmas holiday? There seems to be something brewing in the kitchen...mmmm...... The elves are hard at work, creating something yummy, With a few mistakes, but lots of success, this is going to be good! "Interesting...nice detail work, Bridget." Ta-da! What ocean scene would be complete without a life-preserver? And a school of fish jumping out of a wave? If you are planning on going for a swim, don't forget to leave a marker, so boats can see you, Watch for the buoys, so you don't get out too far away from shore. Oh, and watch for sharks...these waters can be scary! What should we do with the extra frosting? BUGS!!! There will always be someone hungry for bugs! (These are the only kind of bugs I really like.) A big thank you to Emalei for the pictures and Dale for his book, "Hello, Cupcake!"
So, I meant to mention this in my last blog, and I guess I forgot. This is for all of you who read Dane's post about winning the trip to Disneyworld...um, did you watch the movie? Cheers to all of you who figured out it was a hoax. Yeah, the trip is too. Sorry to burst any bubbles out there. I wish it were true also!
Dearest family, friends and blog, this is Bridget? Do you remember me? Yeah, it has been a while. Now, I am not going to make any promises that I can be perfect at this, but I hope now that school is over, I should be better at this. (yup that's right, school really is over...) I have so much to catch you up on and I am going to do my best to fill you in while not making this post a novel:
So, I finished student teaching, I am almost officially a certified art teaching in the state of Utah, I just need a few forms to be filled out online. I love it! I had no idea how much I would love being a teacher. The hours are long, but I come home from the day happy and laughing from all that has gone on. Thank you to all who supported me!
I was called to jury duty, well this was my third time, but the first time the trial has actually gone through all the way and I got to sit in the jury box and feel like I was in a movie while they selected the jury. I, unfortunately, was not selected, but it was a good experience. And to be honest it felt a little like an experience Dane and I had a few weeks before that:
We went to a murder-mystery party put on through BYU. It was so fun! We went up to Springhaven Lodge in Hobble Creek and were assigned to be "ambassadors" from Germany. Each person in the audience was an ambassador from somewhere, we interacted with the characters, and then at the end got together with our countrymen to figure out who did what in the murder.... Guess what? We figured it out! Yeah, that's right, go Germany! So, they gave each person a bottle of Martinellie's sparkling cyder as a reward. We felt cool.
For some reason, I couldn't help but remember the counceling that went on during the murder-mystery party when I was sitting on the stand waiting for jury selection....he he. I know, it really would not have been anything like that, but what can I say, my imagination was going wild :).
Well, that is it for now...mostly because I don't have anymore pictures to make this interesting, but don't worry, there is more to come!
Bridget and I entered a contest at a gas station a few weeks ago, and we got a call today that we won!!! They told us that they would send us an e-mail, and that I (Dane) was the person who won! Bridget and I entered separately to increase our chances of winning, and I won! We will be going to Disney World In Florida on January 9th to witness all the changes they've made for me!!
