A Lot To Catch Up On.....

I know I havn't updated in forever, so I'm going to do a quick post of our last 5 months. Doran and I had a wonderful summer planning our wedding and getting excited to start our lives together. We were married and sealed forever on September 5, 2009 in the Salt Lake City Temple. It was a beautiful day and we were so grateful and blessed to have so much family in town for the wedding. It was the perfect day! We spent the rest of our weekend at the Little America hotel in Salt Lake. It was so much fun. However, we had to back at school on Tuesday so the Honeymoon was short lived.

Since we got married, we've been enjoying every second we've spent together. It's really hard to spend lots of time together with both of us going to school and working. So for my birthday weekend (November 1) we spent a couple days at the Zermont Resort up in Midland, UT. We really enjoyed our time together and a weekend away from Provo. The highlight of the weekend was going snorkeling in the Crater. The Crater is a natural hot spring inside a cave. It was so much fun to swim around and watch scuba divers below us.

Thanksgiving break was WONDERFUL! The day before Thanksgiving we went to the David Archuleta concert in Salt Lake. It was a birthday present from my wonderful husband. We both loved the concert and loved the start of a wonderful break. We spent Thansgiving and the day after with all of Doran's family at his sister's house in Midvale, UT. We had absolutely wonderful food and were showered with gifts of homemade jam, homemade spaghetti sauce, apples, and many other goodies. We got to open our Christmas gifts as well which included a beautiful wreath for our door. Doran and I both participated in Black Friday and were able to get decorative pillows for our bed and a new plasma screen TV. I would say we were pretty successful, but tired. We very much enjoyed hanging out with Doran's family and with all our wonderful nieces and nephews. On Saturday and Sunday we hung out with my family. Doran was able to finally meet my Orme grandparents and we enjoyed cheering on the cougars during the long football game. We love our families and feel so blessed to have them in our lives.

Until Christmas, we are just finishing up our classes and praying that we do well. We only have one more week of classes and then finals. We can't wait until Christmas and to see my family again. So until then, Merry Christmas to everyone and I hope you are all doing well! Love ya!
