These past few weeks have been full of family get-togethers and fun vacations. We have celebrated a million family birthdays these past few weeks but the most important was TJ's 28th birthday! (in the near future I will devote a post to my honey but for now we need to do some catching up) We...went to the Warner company party, ate dinner at The Roof with the Staples, participated in "Back to Bethlehem," celebrated Christmas, talked to Elder Tanner Staples, celebrated many family birthdays, went snowmobiling @ Bear River Lodge, went to Hawaii, had Maren over for a sleepover. It has been an amazing few weeks! TJ's birthday morning...opening presents

Hawaii was amazing, it was my second time and TJ's first. TJ and I decided to take a trip to Hawaii and leave right after Christmas. We flew into Oahu and Nate Call (one of TJ's best friends) picked us up. We stayed at the Call's house while we were in Oahu and cannot thank them enough. We had a great time with them and cannot wait till we see them in Feb. In Oahu we had some great authentic Hawaiian food at a local place, went snorkeling (probably our favorite activity), Visited Pearl Harbor: USS Arizona, and USS Missouri, took a submarine dive, and went to our first Luau at Polynesian Cultural Center. We celebrated New Years there and boy was that an experience...the loudest and smoggiest one yet! We stayed up talking to the Call's till 4am and then caught a flight to Maui. In Maui we went shopping, went on a snorkel cruise, another Luau, drove the road to Hana, hiked and rented a Convertible...loved it! We were sad to leave the 80 degree weather but Utah welcomed us home with a nice breath of freezing air. We hope that we can go back again but hopefully without the continually farting man on the airplane. :-)
