2011 Christmas Letter



2011 has been a great year for us! Brent started working for a great company, Wise Foods, in January. He's been moving on up in the company and will be helping develop a new department at the beginning of the year. He's still going to school for English Teaching at USU. He's been doing classes online for the past several semesters and in January he will be going to the distance ed campus in Tooele.

M'Recia was working for Kneaders and doing a Social Work internship at South Davis Community Hospital. In may, she graduated from USU with a Bachelor's in Social Work. She quit kneaders and started working for St. Joseph Villa in June. St. Joseph Villa is a Long Term Care Nursing facility (more commonly known as a Nursing Home) in south Salt Lake. M'Recia is one of 2 social workers for about 150 Residents. Most of the Residents in this facility are elderly and many have dementia. Being a social worker in a long term care facility can be challenging, but it's very rewarding. M'Recia loves the sweet residents she works for. Every day is different and full of laughter.

We are still living in North Salt Lake in our 2 bedroom apartment. We are currently looking to buy a home in the same area.

Brent is serving in the Elder's Quorum and M'Recia just got released from the primary presidency. We are enjoying our callings (and the break as well) and look forward to a new year.

We had the opportunity to do many fun things this year. We've gone on several vacations, including to Yellowstone, and have enjoyed the luxury of two paychecks!

We're hoping that you all had a great 2011 and that 2012 is equally exciting.

Love,


Brent and M'Recia Seegmiller

It's almost Christmas!

Our tree looks great! However, Brent is still recovering from his surgery (tonsils) and we're hoping he'll be better in 6 days to enjoy all this!

The Best of the Past 6 Months: Yellowstone

*cricket sounds*

Well, I have to say I'm somewhat ashamed of myself. My last post date was in June. JUNE! Well, I think I pretty much killed all interest anyone had in following me.

For anyone who is still out there following me, here's a little review of the last 6 months.

Right around the time we went out to see Wicked and my graduation, I had a few interviews.

On May 25th, I got hired at St. Joseph Villa.St. Joe's is a long term care facility, or more commonly known as a Nursing Home. I'm a social worker there and I have about 60-75 Residents that I look after. The social workers are responsible for most of the family contact and the resident's mental and emotional well being. I've really enjoyed working with the elderly. Most of my residents are very sweet.

My new job has kept me VERY busy. I really haven't had time to make things any more. It's quite sad. But, Brent and I have been doing a lot of fun things whenever we can.

In July, we went to Yellow Stone with my parents. Neither Brent nor I had ever been before it was really spectacular.
