I just happened upon this old picture! This was taken on my cell phone towards the end of my first year in Hygiene school - March 2009. I needed a bunch more xrays to finish up my requirements for the semester so Mike came up inbetween classes and let me take a couple xrays. He was such a good sport! He was always so supportive during my stressful years in school. Love you babe!

My very best friend Kara, called the other day and said that the Dental office she is currently working in, is hiring for Monday's. That's one day that I haven't been working as a Hygienist. I jumped right on it and took in a resume. I really liked the atmosphere in the office and the Dr. seemed very very nice. He didn't have time to interview me then but said he'd call me. Kara then called me later that night and said he wanted to hire me and start this coming Monday!! She said she told him all about me and he really liked what he heard!! Dr. Packard called me the next day and offered me the job!! I'm SO excited and feel so blessed to have such a wonderful friend like Kara. I'm so thankful for our Father in Heaven who keeps an eye on us and gives us such wonderful opportunities to grow and progress. I'm really excited to be working 3 full days of hygiene. I'm sad to not be with my dad everyday and work with him in his office but I'm happy I get to be with him for 1 1/2 days a week. Live couldn't be better!!

What a Great day!! We stared out with making a delicious breakfast for us and Mike's younger brother Brian who stayed the night at our house. We then cruised our way up to Brigham with my mom for Peach Days. We met lots and lots of our family there and we just had a blast!!
The parade was awesome! After that my mom and sister's walked us through their old house, which at that time was a very nice mortuary, (now a Coldwell Banker's office) and told us lots of fun stories as we went from room to room.
We then walked up the street and got legendary 'Scuba burgers' and ate them on the lawn of the City Hall. We just wandered up and down main street, window shopping and eating yummy Idle Isle chocolates.
Once we all got pretty tired of walking, we went over to my aunts and just sat around and talked with all of the family. It was such an incredible day!! I LOVED watching my mom reminisce with her sisters about their childhood and talking with such great people. I'm so happy we're going to make it a tradition again!

For Mike's birthday (way back in April) I gave him tickets for us to go see Lion King down at the Capital Theater. For the past several months, he has been singing songs from the show at the top of his lungs!! I sure hope our neighbor hasn't minded his African music!!
We went on last night (Sept. 9) with my parents, adorable sister Alacia and Melinda (not pictured). He saw this Incredible Musical several years ago in New York with his parents and has wanted to go again ever since.
I was so excited when my mom told me she had bought a bunch of tickets and that I could buy 2 from her. We headed down early and ate dinner at Sizzler and then enjoyed the fun atmosphere of the show. It was one of the BEST musicals I've seen. We both just loved it!! We went with my parents, Alacia, and Melinda. Mike was in Heaven the whole time!!

Just to update everyone on what we are doing......
Mike is continuing his education at Weber State University on a choral music scholarship with a major in Computer Science. He still loves singing in the Chamber Choir. He has about 2 more years to complete his Bachelor's degree and then possibly go on for a Master's. He loves school and is working super hard. He also works part time in a small business here in South Ogden as a computer programmer and continues to do some free lance web design on the side. He's such a hard worker!! I couldn't be more proud!
He thought I was weird to take a picture of him on his first day back to school but was a good sport and let me take it anyway!!
As for me, as I'm sure most of you know already, I graduated from Weber State University back in April with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. I never thought this day would come! I completed and passed all 4 of my board exams and received my Hygiene license in May.
I luckily and gratefully still work for my dad in his dental office for two days a week and work for Experienced Dental one day a week. It's perfect!! I'm finally living my dream of being a hygienist.

Welcome to our blog! This has been a huge work in progress for me to put together but I just decided that it doesn't need to be perfect. The most important thing is to actually blog so that family members and friends can be updated on the Jasper family! Both Mike and I will post fun things as the days go on. Please feel free to comment! We're excited about our fun blog! Enjoy! :)
