Well, yesterday was my 23rd birthday! I had four hours worth of classes and Chris didn't get home until 10 pm. But believe it or not, it was a good day! My parents called me and I was able to talk to them, Rachel and Annabelle. Gordon called me and Natalie and Krystle sent me texts. I also got a package from my family with way cute stuff in it and a card from Natalie--totally cute also--and a card from Chris's parents and my Gma and Gpa Nicoll. When Chris got home, we went over to our neighbors and they had a German chocolate cake with candles and all and sang "Happy Birthday" to me! It was a lot of fun and I am so lucky to have a husband that likes to surprise me! Thanks to all who made my birthday a great day!

I just have to say that I can't believe it is already October! I truly believe that the older I get, the faster the time goes! However, I do want to state-for the record-that October is probably one of my favorite months. I love the fall leaves changing and the way the air smells as it cools (poetic, I know!). Some of my most cherished memories are those of the football lights on over the players during the fall season (Chris made me put that--just kidding!). But all is well here in the Hansen house. Chris is working hard and long and getting those 'taters harvested. I am forging on with school and can't wait until Thanksgiving vacation--ha-ha! We are anxiously awaiting General Conference and want to thank our parents for instilling in us the importance of the gospel in our lives. We love you!!!
