The Latest on Jaden

This is our little family at Mesa Falls near Rexburg a few weeks ago. Jaden hates to be bundled up, but it was a little chilly.
This is Jaden's first trip to Texas. Of course we had to buy him all of the Texas gear we could. Giff went to the UT football game with my brother and they yelled so loud they didn't have voices when they came home. We had a blast down there! Grandma and Grandpa Hollingsworth could hardly stand it!
Jaden was a penguin for Halloween. I don't know if he liked it very much, but we sure did.
Jaden is four months old in this picture. We tried to get him to smile for the camera, but he just liked staring at the light on it. We took so many pictures he started balling. I guess he doesn't like the camera all that well yet.
Yes!! He has now discovered his toes. Who knew we could be so excited about our little one discovering toes. We must be parents I guess.
These are a few updates on our little Jaden. I am anxious to see what's going on with all of your families lately too. Happy Thanksgiving early!!

Hello Ladies!

I haven't written on here for awhile so I thought that now is a great time. Well, Giff and I are having a great time being parents. Jaden is so fun to be around. He has been smiling and cooing to us for quite some time now. I added on some of his recent bath time pictures. I put them on the newsletter too...I think. Anyways, Giff and I might be coming down for conference as well. He has a ticket for the priesthood session and Giff and I have tickets for the Sunday afternoon session. We aren't quite sure if we are going because Jaden can't be in the conference center and we're not sure what to do there, but if we end up coming I would definitely love to see any one who down there. Keep me posted. I love y'all lots.

General Confrence

Hey Girls-
Jen gave me a call the otherday and she and Josh are going to be in town Confrence Weekend (October 5-7). She would love to see who ever will be in town the same time. So were trying to get something together, so let either Jen and I know and we'll figure out a good time and place! Talk to you all soon!
Hey Girls!!! I have been meaning to post my happenings on here for a while, but I was kinda lost in how to do so. Luckily I saved the first email Jenna sent out about the blog and was able to follow her meticulous instructions.
All is well with Shannon. I have been doing good and keeping busy. This summer has been spent mostly working (which I hate…but we’ll get to that later), volunteering at This Is The Place, catching up on some reading and just doing nothing!!! Nothing too exciting in the way of traveling this summer but hopefully I will find someplace great to go for Fall break. I am still working at the hospital, which I don’t like. The management recently changed and they are making life pretty miserable and to be honest I just want a normal job where I don’t have to work nights, weekends, or holidays. If you hear of anything in Utah that you think I might like let me know! This Is The Place was a lot fun but I was glad when it was done, spending the day in two petti-coats, a dress, and a bonnet all day it sure does get hot! Here are a few pictures from my summer…

This is the open prairie of This is the Place

Just a little Looming..(Bring back any memories?)

Some Bread anyone?

So as summer ends, school begins, I’m taking my last few classes to finally graduate with my associates, its been a long road but I guess it dosen’t matter how long it takes you to get there, but that you get there. So after that who knows what, I am thinking about going to either the U or USU for my bachelors in Sociology. What about Nursing you ask? Well after doing allot of soul searching and praying I've decided that Nursing isn't for me. It has taken me a long time to come to this point cause its what I've wanted to do ever since I can remember! But I know that Heavenly Father has a plan and I am doing my best to put my trust in him and have faith that everything will work out. Its no secret that I LOVE Church History It would be my dream to work in the church history department for the church so I have decided to go in to Sociology. I talked with someone in the Church History Department and they said that Sociology or History is there recommended major for someone who wanted to pursue that kind of field. Then they told me that they have internships for students in between their graduation and starting graduate school. You have to have a Masters in Library Science to work there, basically what a Masters in Library Science is learning how to Archive, Catalog and Research methods. So that's the road I'm on. As exciting as it is, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the thought of it all so I’m just taking it one step at a time.
So I have been thinking that it’s about time for another edition of the Nauvoo Nine Newsletter. So If I could have your updates and pictures by September 14th that would be great! I love you all and can’t wait to hear from ya!

That's really cool about your move! I hope everything works out for you guys. I can now relate to being married and having to make a big move...it's quite intimidating, but it always turns out well! Love ya!
