Ryan & I were married April 6, 2007 in the Salt Lake Temple. We met through a mutual friend a year earlier. We are currently living in West Valley Utah. We both work fulltime and attend school at Salt Lake Community College. Ryan is currently serving as the Ward Choir Director (the same position he held in the Singles Ward where we met). I am serving as a Part-Time Church Service Missionary (I answer the phones from the referral center at the MTC) as well serving as a counselor in the Stake Primary Presidency. We keep ourselves busy! We don’t have any children yet, and look forward to that blessing soon.

dscf1037Gary and I have been married for 9 years now!  It’s so hard to believe.  We have six beautiful children and our oldest, Emma Kate, was just baptized on Jan. 24th.  Gary was hired by CES in June 2005 and began by teaching for aproximatly one year at the SDSU Institute. (where we used to go to dances. THey don’t do them there anymore)  After his time at the SDSU Institute he became the Director at the Chula Vista Institute that is associated with South Western College.  I send my 3 oldest tro school and care for my other 3 during the day.   Also I kind of run a fun Music class for preschoolers as one of our wards enrichment groups.  I didn’t come up with the idea, I just took over when the origionator moved.  I have been one our Relief Society Instructors for the past 3 years and I love it.  THere really isn’t much more to tell.  Life is beautiful for us and we feel extremely blessed!family

lauraGreg and I were happily married July 14th, 2006 in the San Diego Temple.  It was the typical Mormon story really. We were in the same ward up at BYU-Idaho and met by chance one night because my FHE brothers weren’t home. Well he stole my heart with his military charm rugged good looks and basically from there on out the rest is history!  We are now currently living in Phoenix, Arizona while Greg completes Law School at ASU.  I graduated from BYU-Idaho with my bachelors in Sociology and am now working at the University of Phoenix as a Doctoral Enrollment Adviser.  Greg often teases that I’m his ‘Sugar Mamma’.
Speaking of ‘Mamma’ we are currently expecting our first child July 25, 2009 and CAN’T wait! We won’t be in Arizona for long as Greg is in the Army and we will probably be heading to the East Coast in about a year for Officer’s Basic and to start our military life together. 🙂 I can’t believe how much has changed since the Institute days and love that we’re all connecting again. Everyone looks so good and I look forward to seeing more of you!laura-greg-leving-the-san-diego-temple_1_3

I am living in Orem and I am Senior (finally) at Utah Valley University, studying Sociology. If all goes well, I will graduate next April 2010 and I want to work with in teh Juvenile Dtention system. I work fulltime at an elementary school teaching PE which is the best job ever becuase I get to wear sweats to work with tennis shoes and my hair in a ponytail. PLUS who doesnt love their PE teacher right?? During the summers when there is no school I am working at the Hogle Zoo in the eduacation department. I am engaged to Trenton Tanner and we will not be at the reunion because we are getting married two weeks later on March 21st in the San Diego Temple. If you want info about that, I am on facebook. After we get married I will move in Trent’s house in Kearns and be permanately (hopefully not) stuck in Utah.

After a short courtship Eric and Katie got married in the summer of 2004.  Eight months later they discovered that they were pregnant with their first baby girl, Lucylle!  Three months after they had Lucy, they discovered that they were pregnant, yet again, with Evelyn!!!

Lucy is now almost 3 and Evey is almost 2! Their birthdays are a year and ONE day apart (Feb. 1st and Feb. 2nd).

Lucy is a fun loving toddler who enjoys singing primary songs, dress up, and pretending like to be a cat.
Evey is a daddy’s girl.  She loves to cuddle and dance more than anything and she hates being “messy. ”

Eric graduated with honors from California State San Marcos with a degree in Psychology and is now studying to take the GRE and enter Grad school! He is currently working for CASE Family Inc. as an In-home Behavior Therapist for children diagnosed with Autism. He loves his job!

Katie is lucky enough to be a full time mom, raising their two gorgeous girls at home. At home she continues to draw and paint, but is also learning how to crochet and sew! When their kids are old enough, she plans to return to school and finish her degree as an Art major.

They live in the San Marcos area, and having family and friends close by, would be very sad if they ever had to move away. They love sunny old San Diego!!!
