Well it seems like that what should have been a great holiday week and weekend turned into quite the opposite....
On Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving Jadi and I closed on our house! Our apartment was a complete mess, everything was everywhere! I could hardly move around. Jadi was anxious to get things moved over into our new house even though I wanted to wait until after the holiday, but he insisted. Thanksgiving day I was very sick and I had to make a couple things for our family dinner. All the while our apartment is turned upside down! We have a good night with all the families. It was fun. Then we are moving ALL day long on Friday in the freezing cold! Finally after 12 hours of moving, we were in. Saturday we were so excited to go to the BYU/UTAH game. Saturday morning my mom calls and told me my grandma had just passed away early that morning. I was so shocked and so upset. So we had a family meeting and my dad's brothers and sister decided to have everyone get together the next day (Sunday) and have a "memorial" for grandma. My grandma didn't want a funeral or a viewing, she just wanted the family to be together. So that Sunday morning at 5:00am we flew out to California. We got there and went to see my grandpa. My grandparents have been living in California for the last few years. They weren't able to make it out here to Utah to mine or my brothers wedding, and I just felt so horrible because Jadi or my sister in law Sarah never had a chance to meet my grandma. She was just the most spirited, fun loving grandma. I remember when we lived in Hawaii and my grandparents came to visit. Me, maddie and Alan were swimming in our pool and out comes grandma with her huge sunglasses on, and she just jumps right in!! I loved it because I just thought to my self, "I don't know of any other grandmas who swim, grandma Jane is so cool! My other grandma would never do this!" Its just a memory that I'll cherish forever.
That Sunday at sunset we went to the beach and just talked about grandma and then had dinner all together. It was really good being with the entire family. They are all such wonderful people. We all live pretty much in different states so its not often that we are all together.
Me, Jadi, Alan, Sarah and Maddie all flew home Monday morning. Dad and Mom stayed out there to help out grandpa. Grandpa had her cremated and is going to Maui to sprinkle her ashes in the ocean. Hopefully my Dad and his sister and brothers will be able to go too.

I know Halloween was a couple of weeks ago, but I'm just barley getting around to posting a picture. Since Jadi and I spent the summer in Texas we thought we'd dress up as Texans for my family Halloween party. The best part is Jadi's handle bar mustache! Alot of people didn't think it was real, but it is! And even though we look like we are exagerating on our costumes, we really aren't! In the smaller towns where Jadi knocked, this is what the people looked like, big hair and all! My hair could've been a little bigger I think though!

We're getting a HOUSE!!!!

Jadi and I have been house hunting since before we left to Texas for the summer and since we have been back. It has been fun but frustrating because the house market is just ridiculous! But we found a house that we loved. It's brand new, no one has ever lived in it, and so we made an offer, a very low offer. And a week later we found out that they accepted our offer!!! We were so surprised, shocked and excited! We went to get a loan and everything is working out great! Its such a huge decision but we couldn't be more happy about it! We should be closing on the house next week, and be moved in by the end of the month! We have been looking for furniture, and it's been so much fun! I'll post pictures of the house on here soon!

Happy Birthday to Me!!

Today is my 23rd Birthday! That just sounds so old to me! Jadi and I just went and had some amazing massages! It was so great and after the massage we sat in a tub and they gave us crackers with cheese and some yummy cheesecake! It was so great! And later we I'm going to open some presents and go to dinner at my parents house. It has been a great birthday!

A New Calling...

Jadi and I were asked to substitute the Sunbeams today. They are the cuttest little kids. We had so much fun in class. Little kids are so funny. We just laughed the whole time pretty much. After church the 2nd counselor came over to our house and asked us to be the Sunbeams teachers. I was pretty excited, cause we had so much fun today! We both really love our ward, and before we left for Texas we were teaching the 10 year olds, so its good to be back in primary!
