Family fun over the summer....

We've been able to do lots of fun things with tommy's family and also mine. Some of our activities have included, beach camping, playing games, San Diego, temple, weddings, arizona, san jose, birthdays, funerals, and just making memories together....=)

Marriage Life...

Since its been so long since I've written its hard to believe that I have been married for 5 months and 3 days. I can't believe how fast the time passes. We have definitely had our share of trials and struggles but I am grateful we have been able to experience it together. I can honestly say that I love tommy more and more everyday. I am grateful for the gospel in my life and I have faith that heavenly father wont give us anything we cant handle. I have loved being able to start our little family and trying to start traditions that are important to us. One of my favorites so far has been f.h.e. together just the 2 of us. Its so special to me and it really means alot. I hope when we have children we will continue to make that apart of our weekly routines. Another thing I have loved is doing little projects and cooking together. Its something that brings us closer together and its fun. We just get to talk and get to know each other better. Its great because Tommy loves it just as much as I do. Even since we have been married we have started playing lots of games with my family. Golf and Spades would have to be some of our favorites. Tommy gets so competitive and its really fun to watch him. Life is good and I love my eternal companion. 

Bryce finally came home...

Our family was finally to all be together again after about 4 years apart. It has been alot of fun. When he first came home we had a super fun beach camping trip. Its one of the things our family loves to do together. Its so much fun to spend time with one another.

I love my grandma...

My grandma just passed away on August 13th, 2012. Im so grateful to have the gospel and the understanding that I will see her again. She is someone I have always had a great love for. She is so special to me and I'm going to miss her so much. She is one of the most thoughtful, loving, caring, kind people I know. She loved everyone and she always showed it. I will forever be grateful she was able to come to my wedding and share that special day with me. I'm grateful for her kind heart and her testimony. She was someone who always remembered what you loved and got you your favorites to show you that love. She will be missed but I'm grateful she is in a better place now. When she was going we were able to be around her and sing hymns around. When she was able to talk to us she was sharing her testimony still. She was talking to caitie on the phone and told her she loved her. then she said im grateful that we can be together forever and shes grateful for the savior. She always loved God and showed it.

Our wedding....Los Angeles Temple

So lets just say I have been a bad writer on the blog. it has been too long and I need to be better about journaling and keeping track with my life. I'm going to try to recap on a few things in the last few months.

March 17th, 2012 will forever be a special day to me. I got to marry my best friend. So our wedding day was lots of fun. It started off a little wet but by the end of the night we all had such a fun time. It was raining so hard and traffic on the freeway was really bad. Traffic going to L.A. is always bad but with the rain it was even worse. Once we got to the temple it felt so peaceful inside. I had to wait for over an hour for my husband to finally make it. He finally did though. It felt so good to be in the celestial room and know that I would be with him forever. It was nice to have so much family and good friends there to support us and share our special day with us. We got lucky right when we came out of the temple the rain stopped for a bit, but it was FREEZING taking the pictures. The wind was blowing and it was cold. We ended up getting lots of great shots together although I wish we had some more family shots due to the weather we weren't able to. (I was so scared the rain would come back.) Afterwards we headed back to the church in upland and had the most fun reception. We had such a good line of friends and siblings. We just had fun. It was a good night. I was surprised when all the groomsmen did some fun dancing for me. It was great. And I had to conquer my fears and do a Polynesian dance for my husband. I was so SCARED. Its something I will never do again but it is a memory and I'm proud of myself for actually doing it. When we were dating I use to tell Tommy he would have to pick someone else to marry if he wanted them to do that at his wedding. As it got closer to us being married his brother explained to me that I really did have to  dance at our wedding because of tradition. I finally agreed. I know it meant alot to Tommy so I just did it. Its funny because my good friend Rachel was so patient with me and she taught me everything. She was such a good teacher. When The time came and I got up there I forgot everything. I just did some moves I remembered over and over again. I loved being able to dance with Tommy and watch him dance for me. It meant alot to me as well. It was fun for my daddy daughter dance I had my sisters join me and my dad and it was fun all being together.One of the most special things to me is that my grandpa don came to the temple and he and my grandma Lorianne came to my reception. Tears filled my eyes when I saw them because I know it was an easy thing for them to be there. With all there medical problems at the time it really took alot but they made it. we danced with both of them in their wheel chairs and they loved it.  A little fun memory I don't want to forget is going to walmart  after our reception. We had to get a few things and I walked in with my wedding dress and all. It was a super fun day and one I never want to forget.
