A lovely weekend for a wedding

This weekend we took yet another sojourn down to Utard. It was a treacherous journey to say the least. Our normal 4 hour drive turned in to a 5.5 hour drive because of the horrid snowy/road conditions. AND we were SOOO close to colliding with two Bambies. It was scary. But it was so worth the trip because David and I went to see our good friend Todd get sealed to the woman of his dreams Marie in the Manti temple for time and all eternity.  It was a beautiful ceremony and a lovely reception.
The Manti temple was unlike any temple I had ever seen. The decor was intricate and old fashioned and simply amazing. While we were waiting inside for the sealing to begin, David and I tried to get a sneak peak of the famous spiral staircases. Sadly we didn't get very far due to some grumpy temple workers :)

 Afterwards David showed me his old stomping grounds at Snow College. (he played football there a year before his mission). We stopped and ate at this cute old dinner called "Malt Shop" The food was oh- so- delish

 Congrats to the newly weds!

the hottest missionary i've ever known

...(besides my hunka husband of course)..

left to the M.T.C today. 

That's right. My little brother ELDER M. JAKE WOOD. 

He's been called to serve in the CUERNAVACA, MEXICO mission.

We said our goodbyes via phone last night. I am so proud of him. 

He has become one amazing young man and will be one amazing missionary. 

Here are some pics to reflect our brother/sister relationship over the years

See you in two years Jakey!!

Our First Christmas (and new years!)

Sorry it has taken so long to get this Christmas post up. We've been so busy with traveling, work and getting ready for the new semester that I totally lost track of time. Anywho, Christmas was amazing to say the least. Davey and I ventured down to Utard to spend it with his family. We ate lots, shopped lots and enjoyed tons of down time and good visiting. Of course I again became deathly ill Christmas eve but it didn't stop me from eating/partying till I dropped. It was my first Christmas season away from my family. I missed them soo much and we are looking forward to seeing them soon. In the meantime here are million pictures from our holiday accompanied by captions to explain them... Enjoy!

Packing up our gifts

We went to temple lights with Angie and Joe and Jacob and Rebecca. It was my second time ever!! 

This was my favorite tree. It was SOO beautiful!

We woke up with our bodies sunken to the floor due to a hole in the air mattress!  David wasn't too happy.

On monday morning we did a session at the Mt. Timp temple with davids parents. It was the busiest i have ever seen a temple! We had to wait 30 min in a line just to get into the chapel.
Mt timp where David and I met for the first time.

On the way home I cashed in a 1 lb gift certificate for See's that David gave me for Valentines last year. I always forgot to bring it when when we went down to Utah so we very much enjoyed it for the drive.

After the long trip back we came home to a broken water heater. No hot water and no heat! Our apartment was so freakin cold. 

 After a few failed attempts to fix it, david volunteered to boil water and wash my hairs.

For New Years eve we saw a double feature at the local dollar theater. We watched Life as we know it and Red. Both were very good movies. Later we counted down to the new year, watched the ball drop and toasted at midnight. I loved being with my sweetheart for the new year. This past year was loaded with up and downs and full of amazing memories. I can't wait to see what kind of adventures are in store for us this year and years to come. Booh yah. 

Happy New Year!
