Kasey and I got engaged in June right after my brother did. At Julia Davis park by the rose garden(pic to the left) Than we went to Utah so i could meet his Grandparents. I started on my process of work i needed to do. And it was a process but w much faith and pray we had together, things finally came together and we are getting married on Jan 21 2012. we had a nice and fun summer. Mostly we just worked, spent a lot of time w family. Many many many Family BBQs or sundays at the park after church w family. Time really flys by. We had an indian summer(so a late warm fall). Than fall came and went so fast. I went to the Western Idaho Fair in Aug w my friend Farzana. We went to lots of activites w Kasey old ward and had lots of fun getting to know people, which they were really sad that Kasey was moving out of the ward cause we needed a place that would fit our needs better than were he was living. many people in the ward even tried to help him find a place to live within the boundries even his Bishop/Coworker lol.(pic above right before we went to the ward corn feed) I have been to the new ward once and to the ward Christmas program and i have met a lot of new people. I have already felt so welcome by people. The sisters are excited i will be in the ward in Jan as am i. I have felt a connection right away, i have also felt i know many people in the ward too. We got our engagement pics taken by my old releif society pres daughter, also know as Rachel Laney's sister Melissa Snyder. http://photosbymizmel.blogspot.com/2011/09/jen-and-casey.html Here is a link to her blog of a few pics she put on there.
UPDATE IT IS:
My brother Brent got married on July 16th in the Idaho falls temple to a amazing girl Gaylene(love her as my sister in law).

"Now, my brethren and sisters, the time has come for us to stand a little taller, to lift our eyes and stretch our minds to a greater comprehension and understanding of the grand millennial mission of this The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is a season to be strong. It is a time to move forward without hesitation, knowing well the meaning, the breadth, and the importance of our mission. It is a time to do what is right regardless of the consequences that might follow. It is a time to be found keeping the commandments. It is a season to reach out with kindness and love to those in distress and to those who are wandering in darkness and pain. It is a time to be considerate and good, decent and courteous toward one another in all of our relationships. In other words, to become more Christlike."Gordon B. Hinckley, "This Is the Work of the Master," Ensign, May 1995, 71

"The Prophet Joseph . . . explained that 'faith is not only the principle of action, but of power also, in all intelligent beings, whether in heaven or on earth' (Lectures on Faith, 3). Thus, faith in Christ leads to righteous action, which increases our spiritual capacity and power. Understanding that faith is a principle of action and of power inspires us to exercise our moral agency in compliance with gospel truth, invites the redeeming and strengthening powers of the Savior's Atonement into our lives, and enlarges the power within us whereby we are agents unto ourselves (see D&C 58:28)."

"In 1976 an area general conference was held in Copenhagen, Denmark. Following the closing session, President Spencer W. Kimball desired to visit the Vor Frue Church, where the Thorvaldsen statues of the Christus and of the Twelve Apostles stand. . . .
"In Peter's hand, depicted in marble, is a set of heavy keys. President Kimball pointed to those keys and explained what they symbolized. Then, in an act I shall never forget, he turned to President Benthin [of the Copenhagen stake] and with unaccustomed firmness pointed his finger at him and said, 'I want you to tell everyone in Denmark that I hold the keys! We hold the real keys, and we use them every day.'
"I will never forget that declaration, that testimony from the prophet. The influence was spiritually powerful; the impression was physical in its impact."
Boyd K. Packer, "The Twelve," Ensign, May 2008, 85

"We were given our agency. We must use it wisely and remain close to the Spirit; otherwise, we foolishly find ourselves yielding to the enticements of the adversary. We know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ our mistakes can be washed clean, and our mortal body will be restored to its perfect frame.
" 'For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God' (Moroni 7:16).
"There is a perfect manner of communication through the Spirit, 'for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God' (1 Corinthians 2:10)."Boyd K. Packer, "Prayer and Promptings" Ensign, Nov. 2009, 43–44

My best friend Jennifer Buhler was sealed in the Boise Temple and had a reception after it and i made these mints all week, Liz also made some more green leaves too. And we did some together at her house also. I also made red and white roses. It was a super spiritual day! My nephew was baptized that day also.
For valentines day i made my primary kids little bags of candy and i stamped a little note card. I also made many of other note cards for all my friends but as i ran out of time i guess i will save them for next year and just be all done for me but i will put a pic of them on here. I made heart shaped cookies at Liz house she made some and i made some. her kids helped me cut out the shapes. Its cute they all want to help and get a turn to cut out heart shapes. The next day i frosted and than the day after valentines day i took cookies to all the sisters i visit teach too. They were pretty good i would say! I learned how at Liz house to make paper roses and it is so cool! So i went and bought all the stuff so i could make bunch more of my own.

On Valentines day we did an early valentines day since kasey works at 2am. Kasey came to pick me up and surprised me w beautiful flowers. I did not get a pic of them all but they lasted till just this past week(3 weeks) i threw out most of them the other day but i have a pic of what is left of them. We left and went to lunch at Red Lobster( i love Sea food). And than we went to Julia Davis park well we got lost first cause i am not good w directions in the downtown area and since Kasey is from Utah he doesn;t know either. But we found it. We ended up driving for an hour but didn;t matter we just got to chat more. Well by the time we got to the park the sun was gone and the clouds came out. We just sat on a blanket and had a long deep talk. than the rain came out and we decided it was time to head back. I had made valentine cookies on Sunday and frosted them this day so i brought some w me for a treat later in the evening than so we went to his place and finished out conversation, had cookies and than it was time for him to take me home. Happy Valentines day!

On xmas eve i came home from work, we ate a ham(which came from a lovely basket w other goodies in it on our door) and some of the family came over. I went to to put my dish together for the next day at like 130am yes am. I was making butterscotch rolls and found our bunt pan was gone and i was out of ingredinents... i needed(brown sugar). I was like crap you can't borrow stuff from your neighbor at 130am. So my bad! Well i foudn a pan i could use. The rolls have to rise over night for sure so i just had to spray the pan and put them in w out the mixture. Christmas morning we opened presents, well becky and my mom did almost w out me, that is what i get for sleeping in till 9:00am but you know what the best Christmas gift is sleeping in on your day off, lol. I went to borrow the stuf i needed from the neighbor," merry Christmas, can i borrow brown sugar?" I had to stuff the filling in between the rolls as best as i could and along the side of the pan. I put it in the oven and well see the pan wasn;t big enough and i didn;t think the filling was going to over flow out the pan or i would have put a cookie sheet under the pan. i opened the oven to check the rolls, and well see the filling burnt to the bottom of the oven and this cloud of smoke filled the whole house and the smoke detectors went off, at this same moment my lovely "funny" mother is freakin out.
we than went to my sisters for brunch w the whole family at 11, well we got there at 1145, but it was no big deal. We ate and than just spent time w the family for a while. (oh and my rolls were gone in 2 secs by the way next time i need to double it)
My friend wanted to make sure i had a really good xmas, cause i told her before i felt it wasn;t going to be a good xmas. She invited me to come over on xmas, so after i took my BFf her gift i went to her house. I spent the rest of the day w her family. Which was really nice. They got a Wii for xmas and i watched and even played it a little myself. Than i went to visited my Grandma and took her, her gift. It was 10pm when i got home, wow what a busy day and i was tired. The next day was sunday the 26th, which i had to work since it was the day after xmas. first sunday i had to work in about 7 yrs i wasn;t happy about it. I went to another ward in the morning and i just had this bad feeling all day i shouldn't be there at work.
Over all i would say it eneded up being a good christmas(my best no but thats ok) for what it was it was a really good xmas. I felt a lot of love and joy that day. I was happy that day!!! Every year gets better and better, as time goes on..i feel the joy spark inside me! merry Christmas!
PS i forgot my camera that day so no pics ops!!
