"When was the last time you did something for the first time?"
well just this past weekend, dont worry.

Richfield: population 45...cows
Or thats what it felt like. "I feel like i'm in a scene from the Hills have Eyes Kailyn..." Richfield is populated with trucks, "indian horses," hot boys and farmland. Yep...that about sums it up. We took a road trip down to Richfield to cut down our very own Christmas tree and on the way we stopped at the Manti temple! Let me first say I LOVE the manti temple. I have always found it so beautiful and have wanted to go in for as long as i can remember. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to go in. The spirit was so unbelievably strong in that temple and it was cool because Kailyns dad got to do the confirmations and baptisms since he was working in the temple.
then we went up to the mountains to cut down our very own tree. Now i'm assuming were gonna stay with Kailyns giant brothers who were gonna do everything but nope! we went off by ourself. There was snow everywhere and it was pretty steep so to say i fell a few times would be an understatement. After a good 20 minutes we found Teddy. {yes, we did name our tree}. Sawing him down was quite an adventure, to say the least. Have you seen Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation? Yeah, well i felt like that, staring up at the tree just waiting for him to fall over...After Kailyn made fun of everyone for barely putting a dent in Teddy he finally fell over. Kailyn and i basically carried him down the mountain ourselves partially because Teddy fell on and crushed Erin and well Julie and Heather were a ways back...Carrying a 12 foot tree down a snow covered mountainside is so difficult. Teddy lost a lot of limbs in the process and after laughing down the mountain, getting crushed and falling i made it down with only a few bruises down the side of my leg. COOL. When K and i reached the bottom breathless and dead her 2 brothers came in and swooped up the tree-no problems. And then i thanked God for guys.
It was so fun to spend time with K dad{hes HILARIOUS}, see where Kailyns from, meet her family, eat ALL their food, play crowns and more. I LOVE Kailyn and i am so grateful for her and her family. Love youu k.
