80's Roller Skating!

We had a fun time getting our 80's groove on roller skating at classic fun center! ;)
It was a ward activity and we rented out the whole rink so it was only our ward.
We had pizza and ice cream and skated the night away!

Me and Stephen proud of the light up rings we won for winning a game!

After skating our hearts out!

I am not the best at keeping my balance at times...

We had so much fun roller skating. It had deff been a long time since we had done that. We will have to go back soon so we don't loose our amazing skating skills. haha ;)

Stephen and I went to Color Me Mine in Provo and had a blast.

Cultural Diorama

For my Tell400 Class we were required to make a presentation of three artifacts that represent us culturally and ethnically. They could be objects we had in our home that represent our background, traditions and daily activities. I figured I would share mine on my blog because I really enjoyed the assignment.

*Take note: I am transferring this from a PP so it looks much less organized.

Growing up my parents always had pictures of Christ in our home. At a young age, I learned to turn to Christ through prayer and scripture study.
For Christmas, my parents bought Stephen and I this statue of Christ to help remind us that he is always here and that he always cares. I am so grateful for loving parents, not only here on earth, but up above.

As a young child, my mom found it very important for our family to have dinner together every night. I found that as we gathered each night to eat dinner, it became a place of laughter and comfort after a long day. As time past and all the kids were growing up my parents bought a new table. I made my Mom promise me that when I got married I could have the table we used growing up. I got married 5 months ago and I now have the table in my apartment. This table is a reminder to me of all those wonderful memories I had with my family as we gathered around the kitchen table. Now that I am married, my husband and I are continuing this tradition and will continue it when we have children of our own.

I’ll never forget asking my Dad if I could marry him! (Don’t worry I was only 4) He was someone that made me laugh, smile, and most importantly, helped me to feel protected. He showed me how to live the Gospel by example and set the bar high for what I would eventually want in a husband.
I see so much of my Father in my husband, Stephen. More than anything else, he shows me that he loves me through his kindness and his service for me. He and my Father are just alike. I am thankful for the wonderful Father I had growing up and the wonderful husband that I have now.
