Yay For Utah!

So it has finally started snowing in Utah this week, and I have to say, we are ike 50% excited, and 50% not...:-I but not the less we are enjoying every minute being up here in such beautiful weather. So last week, me and Joel went on a little hike up the Provo Canyon and it was beautiful! The weather was so lovely and the sky was all grey because it was about to rain...but it made me mostly happy that we live in such a beautiful area, and how grateful I am for Heavenly Father giving me such and amazing earth to live on. I am in a Geology class this semester and I have been amazed at so many things we dont know about the creation and how things work on the earth. Did you know that Provo and Salt Lake used to be completely covered by a prehistoric lake called Lake Bonneville? All of the ground in Provo is sand, so the reason why the church has been doing so many building and temple renovations is because geologists predict that a huge wave will come in between provo canyon (probably near the 2nd coming) and will wipe everything out because our houses are built upon sand and not rock ( the foolish man built his house upon the sand....haha). But ya isnt that crazy? So when the wave comes run to a church building! :-) Anyway we are in debt to heavenly father for allowing us to come and live in this amazing life and I am so grateful for all of his creations....p.s. are the pictures beautiful of all the pretty leaves? I love fall!

The Joy's of Utahville...

Okaaaay okay so it has been a long time since updating so here we go! Me and Joel just moved up here to utah and things have definatly been crazy! So we havnt taken really any pictures because like i said things have been crazy! But ya we live in Wymount housing at BYU, which is like the married housing dorms! haha but they are actually quite nice if you get a good one and we did get a good one so we are happy with our place compared to most people who live here. So once I get the house all situated and hopefully more decorated, I will post some pics up of it! Other then that me Joel just started school and so far so good. My schedule has gotten screwed up as a result of teachers telling me and I need prereqs for the class which totally stinks and as teachers changing times of the classes! Ah! Joel on the other hand has had success with his classes, but he has some really hard for me my classes are not hard...yet :-S But my goel this semester is study harder for my classes this year than I have ever studied for anything before! I want straight A's with no but's or if's! But don't worry I still will have time to play around with friends! Which speaking of that me and Em have run into and hungout plenty of times so far with Joel and Cory of course! It is fun being able to see those two little love birds and talk to them about wedding plans! Oh the many memories...haha anyway Joel see's seriously maybe ten people a day that he knows walking around school and I get lucky if I see one! They are all mostly from his mission too which is funny...anywho preston left for his mission a while ago but this is his last week in the MTC and then it is off to El Salador from there! It is hard sometimes living in this complex becuase it is literally kitty corner to the MTC so I could literally sit by the temple and wait for him to walk by but you know I would not do that! I am excited for him though and from what he has written to me and Joel he is loving missionary life and speaking spanish expecially! He is good at it too! We are excited for him...but ya we love our ward, with all the small crying chillins haha and we love living in utah! It is the best! I will post pics up soon! :-) Cliss

Hello Ya'll!

So Texas so far has treated us really well and we actually have loved living here, minus the humidity! We love our apartment and our ward and our neighbors who are very nice. There is not really much to do out here other then go see a movie, go out to eat and shop so sometimes it get a little boring but we are always trying to find new things to go out and do! For example, we have really gotten into playing board games, mainly because we got a ton of them for wedding presents! Haha...also my mom flew in last weekend to spend time with me and Shirece (and Joel of course) because me and Shirece tried out for American Idol...I know I know American Idol is totally not for me but in order for me to be with Shirece I had to register. Sitting for 8 hours to wait my turn to sing was not fun, but being with my mom and sister was well worth it! Me and Joel also spent the 4th of july together watching some pretty amazing fireworks! The pics bellow will show everything! :-)

8 hours sitting in those seats! Killer!

Mmmmm yummy chocolate!

Take a look at that pazzokie! It seriously had a whole carton of ice cream on top! So Good!

Yay for Saltgrass! But chicken tenders ever!

Say hello to the Birthday King! (and no that is not beer...:-) )

4th of july weekend! The fireworks were amazing and beautiful!

Anyway, I know there are a ton of pics but as you can see a lot of good things have happened to us in Texas and we are loving every min. of it! We miss everyone at home but know this is where we are suppossed to be right now so we are puting our whole hearts into it! :-) Cliss

Hmmm where do I even start! We have had so many fun things going on in our crazy lives right now that it is hard to put it all in one post! So I will try and give you the shortened versions of everything...:-) I would have put up our official wedding pics, but we have yet to get those so those will soon come!

So for our honeymoon we went to NYC NY! It was so fun, even though it did rain a bit...

While we were there we also got to see Phantom of the Opera on Broadway! It's our favorite.

And of course we saw the statue of liberty, you can't really see it, but Joel looks cute in the pic so I couldn't help myself!

David Letterman show! So fun!

We also got to go through the NY temple! It was beautiful...there were definatly alot more pictures then shown up above but hopefully you get the idea of how much fun we had!

Now moving on to Cali! Joel surprised me for my birthday with a trip to Disneyland with his family! He was so sneaky but we got to spend time with each other and his family so that was awesome!...oh and yes don't we look lovely??

Luv, Cliss
