I am all done with finals and Glen only has one left! I got a new job at the BYU Comprehensive Clinic in the Taylor building. I have to learn a lot for it but it will be a fun job. For Thanksgiving we went to Missouri to visit Glen's mom and grandma and i finally got to meet Glen's mom's side of the family. It was great getting to know them all! Here are some pictures!

Halloween & Collin Raye!

For Halloween Glen and I went over to Jen’s for a little Halloween party. I was a skeleton and Glen was a monster from Where the Wild Things Are. We got our sweet masks from Dollar Tree. Now for the best part…Collin Raye! Glen, knowing how much I love Collin Raye, got me an early Christmas present to see him! I know he is way old but has always been my favorite! It was at Desert Star Dinner Theatre in Salt Lake. We were treated to nice buffet dinner before the concert. The best part was it was a small room so there were only like 150 people in the room and we were very close! It was a Dream come true for me! I had already seen him twice but this time was the best! It was Amazing!

FaLl TiMe

A lot has happened once again... First we had to put up a picture of our oven. When we first moved in our oven was VERY UGLY, it was yellow and didn’t match our kitchen after we painted all the cupboards. So thanks to my dad we used white appliance paint and painted our oven. It looks sooo much better now and we are very proud of ourselves! Next we got tickets to the Brad Paisley concert. While it did rain that night it was still a fun concert! Glen even gave up watching the BYU vs. Florida State football game to go listen to country. That’s how I know he loves me :). Lastly my grandpa Boppie passed away this last weekend. While it was sad, we were all happy now because now Boppie isn’t alone. He is now back with my grandma and that’s what we have to remember. Jocelyn, Stratton, and I were able to fly down to Texas for the funeral. It was good to be back in Texas again but I wish I could have stayed longer. We all remembered how funny and kind Boppie was because of the stories told at the funeral and anyone how knew him could agree. Boppie will be greatly missed but we all remember how happy he is now.

The Wedding!

We are sorry it has been so long! Things got so crazy with wedding planning, moving, and the actual wedding! We live in a 2 bedroom 1 bath right by my work in Orem. We painted all our furniture and our cabinets and our place looks really good! We still have a lot of organizing to do but it’s starting to look like we want it too. The reception was at Wadley Farms, and we were married in the Timpanogos Temple. The wedding went great and the day flew by for us! The weather was sunny right up to the reception (then we had a downpour with lightning showers.) We had to move the reception inside, then back out a few times so things got a little crazy but it turned out just how we wanted it too! For our honeymoon we went to Fort Myers Florida. It was a nice relaxing vacation. We went to the beach, and one night went on a nice dinner cruise. We start school monday but we will try and update more and add more pictures!

"They can never take our lives... but they can rain us out!"

We were having a great time at the Scottish Festival at Thanksgiving point. We enjoyed seeing the Scotland Games, tents of various clans, and the Wicked Tinkers. (bagpipe band) We also saw lots of medieval Americans who enjoyed playing in armor with duct tape swords. They were even giving free sword lessons? I am sorry. A little too weird for us, but definitely entertaining. I wanted to try a nice pot of haggis, but Kandace was against me eating any kind of food there. On our way out, the rains came down, and the clouds lit up! Rain was pouring everywhere, tidal waves on the freeway. Lighting less than one mile away! (according to the lightning rule of counting seconds) Still alive and kicking. We also went to hike Stewart Falls with Jocelyn and Jared a week earlier. It was a good hike, with good weather. We passed a man who was smoking while he was hiking. He was being pretty healthy. Check out the pictures.

We are so athletic?

Opportunities... The Utah Thunder. Arena football B team. We had a good time watching this crazy game. I believe the fans are more crazy than the sport itself. We saw a couple of BYU graduates on the team also. Not to mention an old co-worker (later identified by my boss) who was one of the crazy gothic fans. Foot stomping was his specialty. The Thunder mutilated New Mexico. It was a good experience, although we both agree arena football is for the lazy football players who love hard hits and short running distances.

Bowling... Parents were gone and we were ready for some fun! Results are:

1. Jared

2. Glen

3. Jocelyn

4. Kandace

5. Tori

6. Stratton

7. Taylor (no bowl, automatic last)

We are Engaged!

April 24th, 2009- Arbor Day...
Who doesn't want to plant a tree on Arbor Day?... Kandace didn't want to. Her mom even made her wear jean shorts because her basketball shorts didn't make the cut. She had no idea why we were even planting the tree. Later that night, we went to the Foundry Grill up at Sundance where we found out that quality and quantity are two different things. After a quick decision on where we should have dessert, we were off to Kneaders. I called Janet while we were in the bathroom and she lit the candles for us. We walked in and I think that is when she realized I was going to propose. I sat her down and sang/played the guitar song which I had written for her. I proposed and she said, "You know I will." We slow danced to the previously recorded version of the song and I gave her a shadow box with the words of the song written inside. The shadow box also contained a tree like the one we planted earlier that day. This had some refence in which we were going to be starting our own family. We came over to her house and called friends and family. Now if she is ever mad, I will just call someone and have her tell them she is getting married. She gets all giddy and giggles.

Planting the tree...
The Ring!!!
