The Big 2-4 & Some Halloween Fun

Jace's birthday was yesterday the 30th. The Sunday prior to his special day I made him a Halloween birthday cake (WITH 24 candles) and we enjoyed it with some family and friends. Last night, the 30th, we went to The Cheesecake Factory, one of his favorites. Jace thought that it was just he and I going on a birthday date but I surprised him by secretly inviting a bunch of our friends... It was fun to see his reaction when we showed up and they were all there to celebrate with us! Happy Birthday Jace!! I Love you :)

Earlier this week was the annual Park Family Halloween Party! I was so excited this year to finally have someone to dress up with!! As Jace and I brainstormed about what to be, we came up with one costume idea that we knew couldn't be beat. It was actually Jace that mentioned it, partially joking, but I took the idea and ran with it!! We got a lot of awesome reactions from passing drivers on our way to the party and the reaction of my family made it all worth it! :)

The Story

Jace and I met for the first time a couple of years ago on a group date... We were both with different people, he with his girlfriend at the time, and me with a random guy. I hardly remember meeting him but he says that he remembers perfectly... Being only the 2nd Noell he had ever met, my name kinda stuck with him :)
Two years later, on another group date (the joys of living the Provo single life) Jace and I, both with different people again, put the connection together that we had previously met two years earlier... it was meant to be I guess... either that, or Provo is just really, really small! A few months went by when we crossed paths again at a friend's birthday party... Jace asked for my number and called me a few days later. He had some tickets to general conference and wanted to take me... the rest is history after that. We were together everyday from then on and were married Sept. 12th.

Finally hopped on board

Well, after a lot of convincing from friends and family, (and a long awaited internet installation) I've decided to finally start a blog for Jace and I. I had to do a little convincing myself to get my wonderful husband to think this is cool :) He still kinda thinks its silly, but I know he'll warm up to it eventually! I'm still trying to figure this thing out so there might not be much for awhile... Hopefully I'll catch on quick!
