Welcome home Elder Ivory

He is finally home after two years. Elder Courtney James Ivory has been home for about 2 days now. Surprisingly he hasn't changed all that much. he is a little shy but i think he will grow out of that after he gets use to everything. things are going crazy cause I'm not the oldest anymore so it's weird that i don't get to take over everything. i mean i still do cause I'm the oldest girl but anyway that didn't make much sense.

Most of our family is come down to see him and to chill so we went swimming at the wave pool cause the little ones have never really been. little macey found it interesting. Macey was born 2 months after Courtney left on his mission so they have never meet each other till today. she didn't know what to think of Courtney it was cute. she would look him up and down every so often but after about an hour at the pool she warmed up to him. tomorrow is the big "homecoming talk" so the other side of the family will start pouring in. Our little house is going to run over by loads of people.


4 days

only 4 days and my brother will be home. I'm so excited and everyone hears about it. it's crazy how fast two years go by. when Courtney left i was a Jr. in high school now I'm getting ready to go in to my sophomore year of college. he will be home on the 26th of June and he talks in chruch on the 29th all my family will be here like at any other exciting time. ha ha well this blog is just a blurb on my brother and it kind of rambles on and on. not much as really been going on sence i have last blogged. so maybe next time i write it will be more interesting.


Am I doing this Right?

I'm new to this whole Blog-ing thing so we will see how it goes. I'm guessing it's a lot like facebook or myspace it shouldn't be to hard. I think i a good place to start would be to tell you a little about myself an go from there as i get use to this. I'm Larissa Kasumi Ivory but as my friends call me, Larissa, rissa, rissa roo, riss, La Riss, Shampoo, Suds, and my new ones, Cosmo, and Wall-E. I am 18 years old and a sophomore at CEU (well going to be a sophomore) I work at a Dr. office and i love it. i work there full time till i start back into school. Next spring i will have my Assoicates Degree in Science and then go up to USU where i will major in physical education with on emphisis on education and a minor in nutrition but that is all bound to change ( the major and minor that is.) About my family i have an older brother who will be home from The Cleveland Ohio Mission in one week. He is awesome and i look up to him in so many ways.
I also have two younger sisters Kacyila (14) and Karina (11). Kacyila is almost a minnie me and she reminds me of myself sometimes which is scary. Karina keeps us going and is always making things interesting. I have a dog, Abby, she is an old dog but cute and we like to laugh at her.
I love my parents. My mom and dad are Karl and Cindy Ivory. they are always there for me keeping me going in the right direction. They always give me insight, i may not always listen to them (but what kid does)but i know they know what is right for me and they have my best interest in mind. Other family that really isn't blood is Megan "Toyoko" Sherman. (she doesn't have a middle name so i gave her one.)She my best friend and i tell her everything so watch out. She has been my Bus buddy for many trips (volleyball and Baseball) she was my study buddy in high school. (ok so we didn't always study because when you get two girls together it is hard to stay focuesd.) she was my lunch buddy. We have became even closer sence she moved. She is now engaged to an awesome man who is really lucky.
My new Best Friend Mike Terry. we have only been dating for about a Month and a Half, but it has been a great month and a half. he is an awesome guy and i am really lucky to have him in my life. at times i wonder how he can put up with me and my weirdness. i have many others in my life but right now it is almost mid-night and i have work at 8:00 so i better get to bed. thank you for reading my first blog i hope i didn't bore you to much.
