Est. October 22, 2005

Although it has been three years since Jeff and I were sealed together, we thought it would be fun to start at the beginning.



Jeff and I met at a church baptism, I thought he was very handsome and I was nervous to talk to him. I overheard a conversation he had with a friend and with my spy ears I learned that Jeff served a mission in the Philippines. After their conversation was finished I knew it was my chance to talk to him. I didn't know what to say, so I confirmed the fact that I had just learned. Jeff recalls that these were my exact words. "So... the Philippines huh?" The baptism was starting at that point and that was the extent of our first meeting. Needless to say, He thought I was a snob and I was already falling in love! A couple of weeks later my roommates and I were having a fondue date at our house. I decided to ask Jeff!



THE ENGAGEMENT!



After spring semester 2005, Jeff left me in Greeley to stay with his parents in Cortez for the summer. He asked me to come visit over the 4th of July weekend. I was nervous to drive the full eight hours by myself and Jeff graciously offered to meet me halfway. His family thought I was crazy, but Jeff was more than willing to spend four hours in a car with me. For those who have driven on any kind of road trip with me know what a fun singer I am! Jeff asked me to marry him while he and his family treated me like a princess. We set the date for October 22, 2005 (yes, during the middle of the semester!)


This was the picture we included in our wedding invitations.

My kids love Olivia. Today I took them to your mom's and Kylie kept asking if Olivia was there. Then throughout the day she would just randomly say "Olivia". Thanks for the compliment on our blog. Olivia is adorable.

The girl in the picture is my cousin. She lives in Utah and was down for the weekend to visit and I set her up with Andrew!

A Lake Powell trip sounds fantastic. You know, it's not too far from Cortez, and it's just going to be me and Addy for the majority of the time, so we'd love all the company we can get. We are planning a Greeley trip before we head out, so I'll keep you posted. We miss you guys, and I wish our girls could play.
