January – we went to a few Jazz games, did a lot of homework, and spent a little bit of time with family and friends.February – was a little bit more exciting. We went to another Jazz game, stayed at the Smoot’s cabin and went snowmobiling, and went to Elite Academy #2 in Salt Lake City.
April – was a great month. We got to play basketball at the Energy Solution’s Arena with Spencer and people from work. We also experienced a very intense hailstorm and lots of snow. Finals week was the third week of April, that was lovely as always. After finals we went down to Vegas with Bracken’s family for his cousin Brady’s wedding. That was a lot of fun; shopping and laying out in the sun! We are so excited to have Natalie in our family; she is so fun and cute!!
May – was pretty busy. First of all, we went on a CRUISE! That was a blast! We went with my family, the Womack’s (family friend), Grandma and Grandpa Simon, and the Jordan’s! We ported out of Florida and visited The Cayman Islands, Honduras, Belize, and Cozumel. It was amazing! I loved the islands, the sun, and the food! Also in May, my little Brother graduated from high school, got his mission call, and we spent Memorial Day weekend in St. George… with the Jordan’s.
Then we went back down 4 days later with Bracken’s family, and stayed on their houseboat for 5 days. That was a lot of fun as well. We went tubing, jet skiing, wakeboarding, and, of course… layed out a ton!!! We also watched movies and played cards.
Also this month, Bracken got to go up to Tacoma, Washington with his family to pick up Braiden from his mission. They had a great time visiting his mission and Bracken finally got to see his little brother after 4 years.
August – We went through the Logan Temple with Nate, Suni, & Ryann. We had an accident in our back yard. We were getting ready to go to a wedding and as we were putting the dogs in the back yard to leave, we noticed our tree was inside our sunroom. So we changed our clothes spent the night cutting down what was left of the tree. It was so sad and our yard is bare now. We also took a few couples up to the Jones’ condo and went boating at Pine View. That was a lot of fun.
One night after work we met both of our families at raging waters for family night, then ate at Winger’s for dinner. We also had Jadon’s farewell on his birthday. That was really neat. He had over 600 people at his farewell meeting.
September – starts my 9th and final semester of college! Wow what a feeling!! We also took Jadon to the MTC. That was fun and not as emotional as I though it would be. It was a good feeling. Bracken finally put up a fence in our backyard for my dogs. We also celebrated Bracken’s birthday with some friends at Texas Road House and went to Wellsville for the Famous Founder’s Day Celebration and the buck-a-roo rodeo!
October – was pretty exciting! We hiked a mountain. It took is all day, but we did it. That was an amazing feeling.We were hot and tired, but it was a neat experience. I also attended Elite Academy #3 in San Diego! That was a blast. I got to listen to some amazing stories and learn a lot from some really neat people. I left Bracken home this time and went with my mom, dad, and brother. I missed him a bunch, but it was fun. Halloween was a lot of fun. Bracken picked out our outfits! He even got to pick out two more wives that night. He was the luckiest husband at the party.
Thanksgiving was fun to see Bracken’s family that he hadn’t seen in forever. We spent the day down at his cousin’s house in Eagle Mountain. That was a lot of fun meeting the rest of the Jones’ family.
December – was my most favorite month this year. Besides celebrating my birthday, anniversary, and Christmas… I graduated from College!!! I now have my bachelors of science in Business Marketing. It was so much fun and a lot of hard work, but I made it! Thanks to all of the support of my family, and I was successful in fulfilling one of my childhood goals. I am happy to be done with school, now I just have to figure out what to do with my life. I guess I will help Bracken get through his last year of his bachelor’s and go from there.
This month was also full of lot’s of time with friends and family. We spent Christmas Eve with Bracken’s family and stayed the night at their house. Santa was very good to us this year! THANK YOU SANTA! We had a blast on Christmas morning with his family. We then traveled up to Logan to spend the afternoon and evening with my family. We opened a few more presents up there and played games. My dad surprised all the kids with iPads. That was a lot of fun and a huge surprise. We had such a good Christmas and are so grateful to have not just one, but TWO wonderful families like we do.
