Today has been a wonderful day!!! Me and my cutie friends went to the airport to welcome my friend Michael who has been in the air force! We were so excited for him to come! We kept seeing all these military people coming down the escalator and they were all false alarms...then he finally arrived and we all just started screaming haha It was a fabulous reunion! He is still the same Michael we all knew:) After we went and saw him at the airport we all went and ate breakfast. Just like old times. It was seriously the best day ever! Homecomings are so exciting! We got all prepared and made posters! We were just so cute:)

Sadly it was also a bittersweet day. My good friend Brennan went into the MTC!! So I was shaking his hand all day long! We also made posters for him too. It was a cute little surprise! He will be a wonderful missionary! See you in 2 years Elder Jensen! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
I am so thankful for missionaries! Lately it seems that all my friends are leaving on missions, and I can't believe that it is already happening! Two of my close friends Brennan and Tanner are both leaving and it's finally hit me that they won't be back for two years. But I know that they are making the right choice and I am so proud of both of them!
My Friend Brennan is going to St. Louis, Missouri. I remember the very first time I ever met him was in 7th grade. Brennan and I have had some good times. He has always been such a great example to me and everyone else. He is always so funny and everyone can't help but love this kid! I know that he will be a fabulous missionary and do a fabulous job in Missouri!! I am going to miss him to pieces! CHINA CHING CHONGS!
Tanner on the other hand is going to Washington, D.C.! That is so far away but I know he will do an excellent job! Tanner and me go way back! I've known him since 3rd grade! Even I can't believe it. Tanner is one of the most talented kids I know. He is wicked awesome on the piano and has a killer voice. He has such a strong testimony and I know that he will touch so many lives in D.C.
Tanner and Brennan are both amazing! And I am truly proud to call them my friends. They both have been amazing examples to me and they both are going to be excellent missionaries. I know they are making a hard choice by leaving for two years, but it is so worth it. They will be so blessed because of their choice to serve a mission. They are both so strong in the gospel and they know how to share it with others and make an impact. I love them both tons and am so proud of them! I just couldn't keep how great they are to myself!
So this dreaded week is finals week....My life will consist of studying for the next few days. I can't even wait. But luckily I only have one final this week. MATH! oh and if you didn't know today is my birthday!!...kind of. haha I have finished one semester of college and i survived!! I really can't believe that it has gone by this fast! It is a mystery where all the time goes.
Anyway on a happier little note. I'm a tiny excited for CHRISTMAS!!! My house is bursting with Christmas! We have all of our trees up, decorations everywhere and it even smells like Christmas!!!!! Christmas is by far my favorite holiday! I just wish that it would snow the week of Christmas and thats it...I have been listening to Christmas music 24/7!!
