Calling anyone who cares!

So life has flown by just a little quickly! We're all older, wiser and fatter (wait a minute, that's just me.) Some of us are happily married, while others remain happily single. Some of us might be rich, most of us are probably not.

What ever your situation, write in. This could be a good opportunity to catch up with everybody. This should be open format so anyone can comment, and if your so inclined send me an email and I'll add you as an author if you promise to be good.

P.S. Don't tell the school that I stole the picture from their site.

Nancy said...

Yahoo! Dan the Man! I don't know how many times Katrina and I have talked about doing this, but then all we ever did as Senior class officers was eat Crackle bars in Hampton's office anyhoo, and the rest of the class came up with all the amazing things. Which, you should probably put up a post for cool 10 year reunion ideas...since it is coming up closer than I will remember to plan in advance.
Nancy Hancock Button here. I live in Boise with my little family; husband Josh (of 3 years), daughter Faith (17 months) and Baby Boy (days away from hatching). Life went fast after high school - I spent 4 years at 4 universities getting my BA in English/Theatre finally from BYU-Hawaii. I served a mission in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. I have lived in Portland OR, SLC UT, Rexburg (it always draws you back), Laie HI, Brazil, Minneapolis MN, Houston TX and have finally landed in Boise the illustrious capital city of Idaho.
I would love to be a contributer/author, although I cannot promise anything scintillating. My email is
Thanks again Dan!

Ormson Family said...

Rock on Dan! Like Nancy just mentioned, we've been meaning to do this for awhile!

This is Katrina Bagley Ormson. I've been married for 4 years in August, and I have a 2 year old girl named Sevryn (Sevy) and we are expecting #2 which is a boy sometime this month (the sooner the better!)

I married a Texan named Jon Ormson and we have been living in Lubbock, TX going to Tech for the past 3 years and are heading to dental school in Houston this fall. I graduated from BYU in Marketing and Advertising Communications in '04 and basically have been doing nothing worthwhile in that field since! I was working at an optometrist's office and am a cycling and youth fitness instructor at our gym and rocking the stay-at-home mom thing!

For the record Dan, Hadley is an awesome name!

Oh! My blog is:

Excellent work Dan, very good idea. This is Matt Wolfley, I live in Ogden, Utah with my wife Jill. We've been married a little over four years and we have one daughter (Harley, 2 years old) and one son (Griffin, 4 days old-yeah!). They're great, and I have been working for Comcast Telecomm for three years in various departments, but most recently in the Sales and Marketing Department as a Sales and Contract Consultant, Jill graduated from Weber State University two years ago with a bachelors in Human Performance and is content being a stay at home mom. I'm looking forward to what this blog can offer!

JillEE said...

Good idea Dan. This is Jill (Walker) Erb. I have sort of blogger stalked a lot of people from High school (read their blogs, they probably don't know). So I think this site is a great idea.

Since high school I graduated from BYU-Idaho, served a mission in Portland Oregon, and got married 2 years ago. Probably the coolest thing I have done is going back to MHS and teaching seminary for 2 trimesters. Brother Carter was my boss :-)

My husband and I moved to Boston for his work about a year ago, and a month ago we migrated to Washington DC. You can read the whole story (well my version) at my blog

Joel Erickson said...

Wow. It's really good to hear what all of you are doing.

My wife Valerie (from Rigby) and I have been married for about 5 years now and we have a 15 month old son Sawyer and one on the way in November. Don't know what it is yet. We wait till the delivery cause it just makes things freakin exciting.

I am finishing up film school at BYU this month. I work in post-production sound f/x and music for films and stuff. Too bad around here all there is to work on are those cheesy mormon films. Probably move to Cali soon.
Hope everyone is good.

The Porter's said...

Hey All!! Wow it is great to see what everyone has been up to. This is Cheri Chiddix, I have been all over the place since graduation traveling and going to school. Life is great, and I have been dating a great guy for a few years now and we plan to get married next August, and continue to live in Seattle!! Yes it does rain a lot, but the city is really a beautiful place with a lot to offer. I have been in Salt Lake for the past year working in the Accounting Department for Salt Lake Commmunity College. It has been a great learning experience, but will be nice to get back to Seattle next month where I belong.
No kids - Too busy now, but hopefully in the next few years.

Angie graduated from Ricks/BYU-I with an A.S. in Biology in 2003 and I graduated in December 2007 from BYU-I with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. We live in Riverton, UT and I work in Alpine for a small consulting engineering firm.
It is good to see all the people who have already heard about the blog. It sure brings back memories of "the good ole' days" seeing all your names again.

Shane, Margie, and Brynn said...

This is Margie Haley Wright. Was anyone else nervous to post about themselves?....high school nerves all over again. I decided to be mature about it, and give some info, only because I appreciate hearing about everyone else. This blog is a great way to stay in I guess I'll do my part too.
I married Shane Wright who is from California in 2002, we met at BYU-Idaho. 6 months later we moved to Boise for 3 years (we loved it there, and I hope Nancy does too!)I took my turn at school, and finished my BA in radiology (xray), specializing in CT. Then we moved to Provo, Shane just finished his MBA at BYU. I kept working a bit, but quit after returning back from Shane's internship in Boston last summer. We got to spend time with Jill Erb when she first moved there too. We have an active, adorable (I'm biased of course) girl named Brynn who is 17 months old. Shane is working in Orem,UT now so we'll be here for awhile, which we never expected (don't say you will "never" do something, because chances are you will).
Life is great, I and enjoy hearing what everyone is up to.
Our blog is to see what else we do with our time.

This is Adam Sparhawk. I graduated from BYU-Idaho in 2006 and now work as a tax accountant for PricewaterhouseCoopers in New York City. I'm also going to grad school part time for a Master's in Accounting at Baruch College. I got married in February to Liesel Enke who is from Salt Lake but has been in New York for 5 years. We're having a great time out here but get jealous when we hear about friends who own homes when we live in a tiny studio apartment and pay a ton for it! But that's the cost of living on Wall Street! Thankfully, Liesel hasn't learned to blog yet, so I don't have a blog to show everyone. It's great to hear about everyone.

Dear "Anonymous",

We (Me and Dan) are working on setting up a better way to do all this. Such as a wiki or forum. As for security, don't post your e-mail address, simple as that. The websites/blog we all post are most likely already crawled.

Also, please be considerate enough to put your name when you post. The new system we set up wont let you post anonymously, :p

1- Reply to this address - please send your current mailing address and the email address that you use most reliably. Your email will be saved in the contacts list so that we can send information about the next reunion.
2- Forward this email to anyone from the MHS class of 2000 that you are in contact with.
Hopefully we can network and get lots of people in the address book. We are depending on YOU to help out with this so that we can be in contact with everyone and have a great reunion!

Hope to hear from you soon!

The Whos said...

Hi everyone this is Leslie (Sutton) Donahoo. I graduated from BYU-I with a degree in Medical Laboratory Technology then I married the funniest man on the face of this planet Jake Donahoo. Let's just say my life is never boring! I went back to school and received a second degree from ISU in Dental Laboratory Technology. Coming this August will be our sixth anniversary. We don't have any kids. Just a big 95lb black lab named Clyde Ditka...and Yes Jake named our Dog after Mike Ditka from the Chicago Bears. We recently bought our first home just outside of Boise. I am currently a Medical Billing Clerk (not really related to my degrees but I love it) for nine Physical Therapy offices throughout the states of ID and CO. Jake is currently finishing his BA in Business Management/HR w/a minor in Economics at BSU and works nights as a supervisor for UPS. I'm his sugar Mama until he's done with school. One Year to go.....WooHoo! I would love to hear from you all. Visit Our Blog: ... when viewing keep in mind we don't have any kids so our only source of entertainment is our Dog.

Jake works for Geico, and I love staying home with our two boys Cooper and Conner. Our blog is

Hey hey hey! It's fun to hear about so many of you! I'm still in Rexburg, slowly chipping away at getting educated (mech. engineering). My wife of three years graduated in April with a B.S. in child development. I've been working at AMET (old j.c. penney building) just a little longer than we've been hitched, builing fancy welding machines. Mission to CT, just did a business trip to Nebraska, and I'll take Idaho. Take care y'all!

Congrats Ashleigh Wood on the hitch'in. If I were in the Burg on August 20th, I would be there.

This is Elijah Watkins. I am in law school right now and working at a firm in Chicago (best city in the world. Rexburg=best town in the world). My wife and I have a beutiful daughter (Ellis) and you can see all the pictures you want at

I served a mission in Tucson, Arizona and am happy as a clam.

Todd said...

Elijah! Awesome little blog there! Great to hear from ya. Last I heard you were abducted by aliens near Area 51. "The aliens abused him...." Independence Day. LOL!
I still remember the expression from my mission president when your letter came and you had PH3 in the return address area. I hadn't laughed so hard in a long time. Good to hear from you. Take care.

Tyler Moore said...

Hey, This is Tyler Moore. I'll give you a little update on my family and I. I served a mission to Veracruz, Mexico. A year after I got home I married Ashley Nelson from Plano (She went to Sugar). We have been married 4 years and have 2 boys. Ryker is 2 years old and Carter is 8 months. They are wonderful. I never thought I would live in Pocatello but we moved here to go to school. We enjoy it for now. I graduated from ISU in Dec 2007 with a BS in nursing and I'm working at the hospital here in Pocatello in Surgery. Ashley has 5 more semesters before she gets her BS in nursing, so we will be here for a little while. Then who knows where we will go. Good to hear from everyone.

Howdy Everyone. This is Bart Munns. It's cool to see what everyone is up to. Thanks for putting this together Dan.

Well, been a bit of everywhere for the past 8 years. Lived in Detroit and San Diego and now call the booming metro of Idaho Falls home base. I'm an over the road trucker, and with primary accounts in Jersey, the Carolinas, Texas, and California I usually hit both coasts weekly and then rotate to Idaho where I have a house. With fuel costs being equal to daily mortgage payments I started a business earlier this year, as a backup, changing auto glass and do that more as a hobby than anything else when I'm home.

Home time is also spent with my one year old daughter Zoey. If anyone wants to get in touch it's newvisionglassco@gmail

Ya'll take care. See ya down the road.

Welcome to Camille, Tyler and Bart.

Greg Willard said...

Well this is awesome to see what everyone is up to. As for myself not much to report, being a farmer takes up alot of my time. The rest of my time I started a business selling and servicing gps systems that steer and control farm equiptment. So time restraints have driven a lot of girlfriends away that once wanted to be married. Anyway here is my blog spot.

john allard said...

Hey everybody, John Allard here, just a breakdown of my life since that strange trip called high school,

I didn’t go on a mission (I think we all saw that one coming). I moved around A LOT-Jackson, Moran, Eugene OR, Portland OR, Tigard OR, Pocatello ect… I attended ISU in Law Enforcement, and then worked as a Sheriffs deputy and City police officer in northern Idaho for a couple of years. I worked in a small community and had some really close calls (with no backup) that made me realize that I like my life too much and so I resigned from that profession. I moved to Portland OR and am now working for the Port of Portland as an “underground laser man” which is a nice way of saying pipe layer.

I have been in a relationship for over 4 years and we have decided to get married this September. She is from Eugene and works in the business card industry. We currently have 0 kids and plan to keep it that way for a while.

It’s great to see everyone on here and all the different paths that we have chosen. If anyone wants to drop me a line, my e-mail is or

Hola!! This is Chris (Thayer) Hill and it's so great to hear how everyone is doing. Update on me: Life is good. I'm still in Rexburg and have been married for almost 8 years. We have 2 kids: Devyn is 7 and Kelton is 4. My husband Jake is a construction bum and also works for the MCSO. I have 3 semesters left at BYU-I, (yes they let me in) and cant wait to graduate. I currently work as a photographer. We dont have a blog cuz I'm not that cool...haha. Life is crazy but were just hangin out, waiting on time. Take care everyone!

Mindi Greene Blackburn said...

Hello Class! I can’t believe reading this blog makes me so emotional! I guess that’s what having kids does to you. It’s been too long since I’ve seen some of you. Thanks for starting the blog, It’s going to help ease the stress of our 10 year! (You all know its dreaded.) But also very EXCITING!

A little about me…
I have been married for 6 years, this weekend, to Jordan Blackburn (from Rigby). We have a little girl, Mataya who will turn 5, this weekend. We lived in Pocatello for 2 ½ yrs and just bought our 1st Home in November here in Ammon. (Don’t fool yourselves, those of you who are in Pocatello. But convincing yourselves you like it does help the time pass quicker.) Jordan is a Security Police Officer at the INL and I am an Office Manager at Help-U-Sell (Real Estate) and also a Nail Technician in my spare time. We love living close to our families and can’t wait to see what the future holds!

No to fizzle the Happy News, I feel it is important to share this information.
For those of you who don’t know, One of my best friends, and friends to many of you, Brandi Hill Delgado was killed in a car accident along with her little girl Jordyn (8 yrs) in December. Her family was in a car accident while traveling to Mexico. Her husband Jaime Delgado and baby boy Jaime (about 8 mo) survived the crash and are now living in Mexico.

It is hard loosing someone so close but it has made me value the friends and family I have now more than ever.

Brandi Hill may begone, but all those who knew her she will live on in our memories! WE WILL MISS YOU BRANDI!!!

Welcome Mindi.

Anna said...

Hi, this is Anna Durfee, or as I was once known as, Anna Alford. Becca Munson (Passey) was in town (Rexburg) visiting a bit ago and told me about this blog. So cool! I have yet to make my own blog, but I'm sure going to get on it! A little about what my life is about:
I married Arik Durfee (he graduated from MHS in 1999) on May 20, 2003. I graduated from BYU-I with a B.S in English Education in April 2005. I taught for a year in both Idaho and Nevada (long story there) and had my first baby, Rachel Ann, on August 8, 2006. Arik graduated from BYU-I in April of 2006, also with a degree in English Education, but also with a minor in Spanish Education. He now teaches in I.F at Clarie E. Gale Junior High teaching 8th grade English. I'm a stay-at-home mom and we are currently expecting our second baby in December! I find out what we're having at the end of this month. We're still living in Rexburg, although we sorjourned for a while in Las Vegas, NV. We manage some guy's apartments and are enjoying life. Like I said, I'll get a blog going and give some updates and pics as soon as possible. Thanks Dan for putting this all together! I loved visiting everyone's blogs and reading about all of everyone's adventures in the world abroad.

For your information:
Anthon Davenport was re-roofing a house in town, pushed a sheet of plywood off the roof, a nail in the plywood snagged his glove and pulled him over the side, he landed on the edge of a rental dumpster and fell in. Crawled out with a broken rib and decimated spleen. After a spleenectomy he is doing well and recovering in Madison Memorial. Prayers would be appreciated to speed along a smooth recovery. Thanks a ton!

Hey guys!

Travis here, super idea.

I spent 6 years working up in Washington State as an automation engineer at the Hanford DoE site.

I recently moved back to the area and I'm working in Project Controls (cost engineering, construction scheduling) at the INL DoE Site.

I'm also going to school right now, getting my degree online full time, and spending what free time I can scrounge up in the gym.

I'm happily single(ish) and I have 3 fish I don't like. I don't have a blog but you can check out my myspace!? I rarely use it, though.

Hi all,

I put together a more inter-active forum where we can all post pictures, movies, etc.

This is more secure and will keep others from pilfering your information. Its very basic right now, but if it gets popular i will snazz it up.

You have to register and login before you can post, its part of the security.
