The Week Before the Missionary Training/Torture Center

Well....holy crap.

Yá'át'ééh - hello!

The first blog post :]....the 'beginning'

Since there is a week before I leave for the MTC, figured I would do a post since my family will be doing the rest of the 'blogging' whenever I send pics/messages home and all that :D

Feel free to check out my sister's blogpost about the farewell weekend with our friends and family:
(took a few pics from her blog) - her blogs are pretty awesome.

Also feel free to check out Jolie's youtube channel about a few things about what Mormons believe. Pretty slick

This Past Sunday, the 27th, made me realize again and again how blessed all of us really are...it's just incredible. Count the little things in life!!

Family flew in town this weekend to say our 'peace out' for two years. CB flew in on Friday night with Jo coming in Sat. afternoon. James/Jimmy met us in SL for lunch after we picked Jo up!
..also said bye to the hair for two years..
Last time the family will be together for two years and maybe more. Change.

We walked around City Creek and ate at Cheescake Factory :D definitely didn't think a restaurant like that existed in Utah haha. AWESOME.

Thanks to a secret friend of mine who videoed my farewell...hehe...here's a lil clip. :] Thanks again...you know who you are..

Farewell talk went great, definitely said more things than what was on my talk. Was feeling 'inspired' whiling talking.
Wish I could do it again.

Had a good turn out, thank you for everyone that came!

Screw smililng.

Let's compare weather :D

Yup, can't wait. Get me out of here.

My mission boundaries...hello Indians and Mexicans.

13 Stakes total.

Thank you again to everyone that came out and supported me on Sunday at my farewell. I'm grateful for everything all of you have done for me and it hasn't gone un-noticed.
Definitely many people I am going to miss...
Still weren't able to get a picture with everyone, but we took a bunch.

 Last time chillin' with the 'Davis Crew' for two..

A very hard goodbye to our Gramps. He may not be here when I get back, but he'll get to be with Grandma again.
Thank goodness for the church.

My couz Taylor whom I spent half my childhood with. :D

Bishop I'm sure appreciated this picture..heheh
