For my 21st birthday we were able to celebrate with the DeVore family because we were down in CA for Henry and Caleb's baby blessings. All of the uncles were able to be in the circle to bless the babies. Even though it was only for a weekend it was fun to be in CA and to be with the family.

This may sound crazy, but we had a wedding dress party! Since most of us in our ward are newlywed's we had a party to show off our favorite dress. This way we got to wear it more than once. My friend Erin and I hosted the party and we were excited so many girls showed up. We even had a wedding cake, a photographer and a red carpet so show off our dresses!

This summer was the summer of Ja improving his golf game. He went about once a week with his Uncle Steve then four or five times with his friends. The Elders Quorum even had a golf championship. Ja was able to enjoy his birthday golf clubs. He eventually got better at the end of the summer. Ja also took a trip to Midway, UT to go golfing with Jason Roberts while I went shopping with Jason's wife Katelyn. If we aren't shopping Katelyn and I ride along in the cart and the guys would let us drive.

The DeVore family took a family vacation to Maui this summer. Ja and I were only able to go for half the week while the rest of the fam stayed the whole week. Even though we were only there for a few days we still had a blast. Our hotel had a kiddie pool with a pirate ship that the kids loved to play in. Brigham got Ja to go in a few times. Brigham thought it was fun to pull Uncle Ja on the "skateboard." We were able to go snorkeling, to a black sand beach, and on a fun Sunday drive. It's wonderful to walk into the ocean and the water is warm! The waterfall was amazing, we felt like we were in the jungle! All in all we had a great time and were really sad to go back to Utah and school.

Just a few miles up the Provo Canyon there is a ski resort named Sundance. During the summer you can ride up the ski lift and walk down the mountain. We did this with Ja's uncle Steve and aunt Kathy because Ja's cousin was working there. It was so pretty up there. We didn't feel like we were in Utah anymore but in the mountains of Austria. We almost started singing doe a deer, a female deer.

One holiday Marel Stock and I were watching a movie and during a break I walked into the kitchen only to walk into a big puddle. Where was this water coming from? I hadn't been cooking, taking a bath or anything. I go into the bathroom to get some towels to clean up and find water is all over the bathroom floor too! Water is even leaking out of our electrical sockets and coming out behind our medicine cabinet! Our bathroom and bedroom window had water flowing down from the ceiling. I run upstairs to see if their toilet is leaking only to find they are having the same problem. The third floor was the culprit. They had no idea any of this was going on, their bathroom was perfect. Luckily the water stopped after a while and the rest of the night was spent disinfecting our kitchen and bathroom. Well, after we went to a BBQ of course, it was a holiday after all.

This year for Valentine's Day Ja was extra busy. He planned a little scavenger hunt with two friends for us wives. They sent us around Provo to find clues that have a poem about where we are to end up for dinner. We went to Asuka, it's like Benihana, but I think it's better. Then we go home to the "Bellagio" hotel. We have always wanted to stay at the Bellagio so Ja made our apartment have the glass flowers on the ceiling. He spent all day blowing up balloons and shaping them into flowers. He was very secretive about it and it was a very fun surprise.

The Seymour family took a trip up to Yosemite to go skiing during Christmas break. We skied for two days, well Stacie and Jill took snowboarding lessons, then the third day we drove down to the valley and saw some beautiful sights. There was a lot of fresh snow because it snowed the day before we got there. And yes, my eyes are closed.
