Gege and Pops 50th Wedding Anniversary

We threw a surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary party for Gege and Pop.  It was such a fun night.  So many family and friends came to celebrate with us.  So many people love my sweet grandparents, but not as much as I do.  I am so grateful for them, and there love that they constantly show me.  They have been my biggest fans throughout my whole life.  They have showed me what true love is, and how to have a great marriage.  I love them, and am so grateful that we got to celebrate this special day with them.
 Shea made this beautiful cake for them.  They cut the cake tonight just like they did on their wedding day.  After 50 years they still smashed cake in each others faces.  Now that is true love! 
All of the grandchildren
HAPPY 50TH ANNIVERSARY GEGE AND POP!! Here is to 50 more.

Kirby's Wedding

Sister Kirby was one of my Favorite Companions.  We were Trail Center Leaders together/Companions for 4 transfers.  We went through a lot together.  I will forever be grateful for her, and the many things that she taught me.  We will forever be sisters.  

I had the opportunity to travel to Rexburg, Idaho to go to her wedding.  It was definitely a day that I would never miss.  I was so grateful that I got to see so many other people that I loved as well.  My mission friends will always be my second family. 

I am so proud of Kirbs for getting married in the temple, and being sealed for all time and eternity to Mark.  It was an incredible experience to be able to be in the sealing room with them as they were sealed. In the temple I was reminded of the importance of going to the temple regularly so that we can be reminded of the covenants that we have made.  They were promised that as they live their covenants they will be eternally happy.  I know that I will be eternally happy as well as I live my covenants.   I am so grateful for the gospel and the blessings that it brings to me each and every day.  I am grateful for my parents and their decision to get married in the temple so that my family could be together forever.  I hope that I can continue to live the gospel and prepare myself to be sealed to my eternal family one day.

Devyn's Wedding

My bestest friend in the whole world got married today.  I could not be more excited and happy for Dev.  Today was such a beautiful day.  She looked stunning.  I was able to be her maid of honor, and let me tell you it was quite the honor.  The tears just rolled down my face as she walked down the isle.  Here was this little girl that I used to watch getting married to someone that she loves.  I am so proud of her.  Seeing her so happy made me so happy. 
Gege did her flowers.  They were absolutely beautiful.  She is a woman of many talents.  

I started dating Trevor aka Elder Hadfield who I served with.  Him and Dev were really good friends so he got to be at the wedding with me.  He is so good to me, and makes me really happy. Plus, he was an awesome missionary!!  He hates to dance, but knows that I love it, and so he asked me to dance.  It made my whole night.  I was glad that he could spend the night with me as well.  We will see where this one takes me.  

The highlight of the night was when Dev told me that in a year she will be in the temple being sealed for all time and eternity.  That will be a day to really celebrate.  I am so proud of her, and the decisions, and goals that she has made for herself.  I love her, and can't wait to see where life takes them.  One year from today will be an incredible day!!!
