What's new?

Well I realize that I told everyone that my goal for the year was to keep everyone up to date as to what is going on in our family more regularly! I think that twice in one month is not too bad....Rationalization complete!

Well here at the Turner household things are going pretty smoothly. We finally finished painting. The kitchen was the last thing to paint and we finished it this afternoon. Thank goodness for a three day weekend. Now is the fun part of putting everything back together, yuck.

John was just recently called to be the second counselor in the Elders Quorem Presidency. Yesterday the entire presidency had to speak in sacrament meeting. John did great. He did it on an article in the Ensign from this month about living a balanced life. It's funny how the Lord always has you speak on the things you need the most. With school, work and family it is hard to fit in all the things in life you really need like prayer and scripture study. John read some great insights from several apostles and things. After his talk he told me he was greatful to have been given the opportunity to speak on this topic. Hopefully we can all do better in that catagory.

I just got a promotion at work!! Yay for me! Actually I am really excited. I was just bumped into the accounting department at a Senior Property Accountant. I work for a Developer/Property Management company. For the last 2 years I have been the CFO's assistant/bookkeeper for several of the properties. Now I am leaving behing Bob (he's the CFO) and moving over into a little cube as a Senior property accountant. I am most excited about the word "Senior" it makes me feel all special.

Lucas is doing great! He started with a great new babysitter. Her name is Karla. Her husband works with me. John and I joke around that we hit the Grandma Jackpot with Karla. She is quickly becoming Lucas' serogate grandma! :) He loves her. She watches him 4 days a week. Just him---no other babies. I love it. Here are a couple of pictures since I last posted.
