MTC Address!

Okay, so I just got my MTC Mailing address. Just to be clear, I do not expect anyone to use it. If you would like to, that is okay. Also, they told me that you are not allowed to send anything that will perish within 24 hours and/or needs to be refrigerated. Just so everyone knows.

Sister Candace Maren Smith
MTC Mailbox # 194
GA-ATLN 1009
2005 N 900 E
Provo, UT 84604-1793
Check back next week for my letter. I have no clue what day my Preparation Day will be, sorry!

Welcome Mom

Candace just made me administrator for her blog.  I will be posting her letters and pictures throughout her mission. So keep checking back and see how she's doing.

Candace we will miss you, but we know that you are right where the Lord wants you to be.

I love you

Moms and Babies. SOOO CUTE!

So, I give my final talk next week, then leave the next day for Utah. Ahhhhhh!!!! So much to do, so many people to hang out with, and so much to say a temporary goodbye to. My Mother will have full control of this blog soon. In fact, I am showing her how to use it tonight, so if any random posts appear, that's probably why. ;)

In other exciting news, He was born to my wonderful brother and sister-in-law this past week. He is the handsomest baby boy EVER with thick, dark brown hair, his mom's one dimple and his dad's chin. Here's some pictures!

I look like I went a bit crazy, but they made me look at the
 camera and all I wanted to do was look at the adorable
infant in my arms! Can you blame me?!?!

This is my brother, Jon, holding the baby. Not his baby. It's Brad, who is the one
that wrote the wonderful name bubble on the board. :)
So, there you have it! An adorable new addition to our family! When he is about 18 months and two weeks, I'll come back home. He is the most adorable mission calendar I could have. I'll definitely miss this little guy and all my other family while I'm gone, but I know it will be worth it.

Georgia, you better be prepared!

So much to do and so little energy!

Hello!!! I haven't written for you guys in like forever!

So I report to the MTC in 13 days and I am sooooooo excited! I just can't wait to actually get up there and get working on spreading the gospel. Oh wait, yes, I definitely can wait, 'cause I still have things to do! There isn't anything else huge that I have to get done, except writing my talk and getting all the little things that I need everyday. I'm just so tired all the time. I think most of the time I'm either so excited, nervous, or stressed that I've been wearing myself out. It's all good though!

For those of you wondering, I plan on leaving Arizona on the Monday, September 17th. I'll be up in Utah that night, since we are driving (yay! Car party!!!). I report to the MTC on the 19th at 1:15pm and I definitely plan to be on time, so if you would like to spend anytime with me...well, I don't know, we'll try to work it out. I'm going to try to visit all of my wonderful family and friends up there, but getting everyone is a little unrealistic if I have to go to each individual house. If I come up with any sort of schedule, I'll try to tell it to you guys.

Anyway, thanks so much for reading. I hope you are all ready to start hearing from my Mom on here!
