Since I last blogged.... Sky and I have moved from Idaho Falls back to Rigby. And we are loving every second of it. We were put in the nursery at church, and its sometimes a challenge, but we love interacting with the kids each week. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we hope you all did as well. Then came the time to put up the christmas tree!!! I was SOOO excited to finally have my own tree to decorate and put presents under. I love the smell of it, and I love the lights.
Christmas time is one of my very favorite holidays, not only for the presents and fun, but for the meaning. It gives me time to reflect on what I have, and makes me even more thankful than before for the blessings and knowledge I have been given in my lifetime.
I know this is short, But I will write more next time. Have a Very Merry Christmas and enjoy
your Holiday activities!

As you know.. Skylar and I are getting married!! We finally set a date that worked for both families, since they are both super busy this whole summer.. We picked July 17th!! In the Rexburg Temple! And it is SET!! We are sooo EXCITED!!! I can hardly wait to enter the temple for the first time.. I am anxious to have the feeling of peace come over me and feeling the spirit sooo strong is what I want! After finally getting the date set and reserved at the temple, we started the wedding planning!! After months and months of looking for a dress.. I finally found it at Margene's. The funny thing is, is that the dress I bought isn't even close to what I imagined wearing on my wedding day! But, apparently thats how it works for alot of girls is what the girls at Margene's told me. After the stress of the dress, we picked out Sky's tux. But, guys are so easy going that it was easy for us to accomplish that part of planning. We then moved on to deciding what the brothers and sisters are going to wear.! We found shirts and ties at JCPenny for the brothers, and my amazing grandma is going to make the skirts for the sisters! I am sooo excited to see the final result! My grandma is truly amazing at everything she does! I love her to death! Then we decided that the dads will have matching ties with the brothers, and the moms can wear whatever they would like, as long as they are in the c olors!! :) Then we moved on to picking out flowers! We are having Floral Classics do them! And they have been soo good to work with us on what we want and giving us their opinion on whether or not our ideas will look good! But, we just finalized all the flowers and its going to be stunning! We have started on the center pieces for the reception! Which are going to be sooo fun! Its going to be a very enjoyable project to work on! Thanks to Skylar, he has helped alot with those! Thanks to Cari Webb for taking our engagement pictures! They are awesome! And we had a blast taking them! She is great at what she does, and its even more fun because she knows us both and she knows our personalities! As for the rest of the wedding plans, they are coming along! We have tons of ideas, now we just have to put them into action! It has been a stressful road, and the stress isn't over! And thanks to the dads and skylar for being patient with the girls and our stress levels!! :) I will be so glad when the planning is over! Huge thanks goes out to my own mother whom I adore and love with all my heart, and also to Amy, the best future mother-in-law a girl could ask for. They have both been patient with us and willing to jump on something that needs done! Thanks guys for all your help!! I know its long... but this has been pretty much our lives for the past couple of months! We can't wait for July 17th to be here - and we are praying for good sunshine weather!!

The snowflakes were GIGANTIC!! It was soooo crazy!
this is about 6 pm the same day.. its off the trees and starting to go away!!
the same tree outside my window.. snow... gone.!
THEN.... all of a sudden it started snowing about 9:30 pm.. and went for most of the night.. and this is what we ended up with!
Snow on the Morning of April 16th. There was soooo much!!
you can see how much snow we got over night...
The tree outside the door... the snow was weighing it down so much!
This tree had just blossomed with cute pink and white flowers about 2 days .. and now they are dead.. poor things
You can see how the snow was sooo heavy.. it was weighing down sooo many branches...
and sooo many of them were broken off the tree and in the road.. it was one crazy night!
So being the crazy people we are, chelsie (a girl i work with), and i went and acutally measured the snow... it is a whopping 10 inches... WOW!
What a crazy last couple of days... Sunshine.. High temps... Rain.. and then the next thing you know we end up with snow covered cars, roads, and yards. But its bound to get better!

As soon as I told my girl friends about "the note", they, in unison, said "why wouldn't you?". Right then and there I had my answer. So I wrote Skylar a note back and told him I would "Go out with him." (aka.. be his girlfriend). As soon as school was let out, I hurried to find him to give the note to him. He read it right then and there and then, again, he smiled. We exchanged numbers before getting on the bus to go home and planned that he would call me sometime that night. At the time, it was the best day of our lives. As I walked in the door from getting off the bus, my mom so sweetly asked how my day was. All I could say was, "It was great!!" (of course with the "I'm up to something" smile. Then of course, moms aren't as stupid as we think they are. She knew something was going on, so she simply asked, "Why the smile?"... I just thought about it- then she had to ask again because I didn't answer her the first time. ..... whoops!! I thought... I'm not supposed to have a boyfriend... I'm not 16 yet.. Should I tell my mom??!!? What do I tell her?? lol... then I just told her it was a really good day at school, and all of my classes were fun. ;) Later that night, as promised, I recieved a phone call!! Uh Oh!! Dad answered it... He handed me the phone asking why "a boy" was calling me. I make the mistake of telling him he was "just a friend from school". Like my dad is going to believe that. I was busted!!! I took the phone and ran off to my room to talk to Skylar. When I hung up I took the phone back to where it belongs and my face was as red as Hot Tamales!! From that day on, I got crap from the family, the neighbors, and everyone else that knew. But... I didn't care, because I had a boyfriend!! We were cool kids now!! haha... So after that we talked every night on the phone, and met up at the football and basketball games as much as we possibly could. Then the 3rd trimester of the school year came... to me it seemed tragic-I didn't have ONE class with Skylar. How in the world was I going to cope? So.. I decided to dump him. Just out of no where, I broke up with him. He was heart broken, and his friends all hated me for it. But, life went on. After the 7th grade fling, we didn't speak to each other for the rest of the school year...
