These are my thoughts...

1. Edmunds.com wrote an article about the cash for clunkers program, of course there results are different from the governments. The government is now mad at Edmunds.com i think i am starting to like them more and more.

2. Nathan and I often complain about BYU-Idaho but today i realized we are so blessed to be here. I have an amazing job, my academic advisor has bent over backwards to make all my practicums work out and i got $1000.00 scholarship for no reason. BYU-Idaho is great!

3. My dad and sisters are coming up tomorrow morning for a weekend of delight! I can't wait to see them.... and my new car.

4. It snowed all night last night and it's still here today... that is never a good thing.

5. And lastly, Nathan cut me out of piece of metal with our last name on it for one of my craft projects... but he spelled it Wilcoson.... i have been smiling all day!

Religous Freedom!

A few weeks ago Elder Oaks gave a talk here at BYU-Idaho on Religous freedom. It was an unbelievable experience to be here for this talk. When Elder Oaks started the talk he made the comment that this talk will be everywhere and that it isn't just for students here at BYU-Idaho but for the world!
I can't even believe how fast the talk has sprung up all over. I am seeing it on blogs and news reports everywhere.

Here is a link to the talk:

and after you read that rent this awesome documentary by Ben Stein called,'Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed'

here is a link for some info on it if you haven't heard about it: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/438551/new_ben_stein_documentary_expelled.html

White Bread

Nathan will only eat white bread... and so far we haven't found a recipe that is good enough for him. Got any white bread recipes that are moist and Delicious?

We just got Adobe CS4. I don't really know how to use it yet but i have just been playing around on it for a few minutes and it is pretty exciting. I am hoping great things will be coming out of this little program very soon!

A few sundays ago we forgot to bring our keys with us to church... consequently when we got home we were locked out. While i was sitting on the stairs wondering what we should do about the problem Nathan had the great idea to JUMP from the balcony to the window, and then proceeded to try and break in while hanging from a very tiny practically non existent ledge while he busted the screen out. Of course i was paranoid that he would fall and die but after a few minutes he managed to get the screen out and pull himself inside our apartment. Looking back we both can't figure out how he actually managed to break in and not fall or get hurt. Its always such an adventure with Nathan around!

I am not usually a big promoter of President Clark (the president of BYU-Idaho)... but he gave an AWESOME devotional a couple weeks back and i would really encourage you to read it.
