I'm Back At It!

I'm really going to try to stay on top of this blog thing.  
Now I have two of them to keep up.  I just need to schedule my week so that it includes doing blog updates.  And this blog isn't just for you but it's for my family and my descendants.  Maybe one day I'll have grandchildren and they'll want to know what went on in our lives.  This will give them a little taste of what we were like. Although that just might scare them.  But at least they will know that they came across their craziness honestly!  HaHa  

Have a Great Day Everyone and Come Back Every Week to Check on US!

Santa came to Town

Our Ward Christmas breakfast was this last Saturday morning. We went and enjoyed scones, sausages, fruit, juice and milk. It was really nice. The best part though is when Santa came. The little kids loved it. They each got to sit on his lap and tell him what they wanted for Christmas. They got a candy cane. Here are a few pics that I snapped of each kid who sat on Santa's lap.

The Bloody Toe!

loooong night. When the Doc finally got the chance to look at it the bleeding had slowed a little. But as soon as he cleaned it off it started all over again. He tried to stop it but had no luck. He finally decides to remove the nail. The nail had snapped right at the base of his nail bed. So he removed the nail...which I dealt with really well. It wasn't until an hour of him messing around with it and him finally leaving that it hit me. UGH!!! I almost passed out. They got me on the bed next to Cody and put cold rags on my head. I felt sick. I don't have a strong stomach for that stuff and that was REALLY bad! Anyhow I felt better after about 30 minutes and Codys toe was still bleeding. The Doc said that he could go home and keep it up. He was going to call the Podiatrist first thing in the morning. So we went home, very tired! The Podiatrist call early the next day. We were there by 9am. When he took the bandage off (that had bled through) Codys toe was STILL bleeding. They figured the nail nicked an artery when it snapped. He just bandaged it up again and told him to stay off it for the next few days. He did. He kept it up high and got treated like royalty. Everyone waited on him. He loved it. We went back to the Podiatrist on the following Monday and he said that it looked ok and said that it should start getting better. It did finally stop bleeding for the most part! It was quite the adventure!

Thanksgiving Time

This is our dear friend Tom Turkey. He joins us every year for our Thanksgiving feast. He hasn't yet gotten dress for the occasion. We told him that we would help him get ready. When we were done dressing him up we invited him to warm up next to the fire. And told him to let us baste him with oils so he wouldn't get burned. He gladly obliged. He was such a good sport. Everyone really enjoyed having him around. The kids REALLY enjoyed him a lot. Thanks Tom for always coming to our Thanksgiving day dinner. You were awesome as usual.

Thanksgiving this year was very quiet. It was just our 'little' family. We didn't do much but hang out and relax most of the day. The kids played with some friends around the block for awhile. And we at. That was about it.

I must say that I do like to reflect back on the year and take note of all the things that I am grateful for. I'm so grateful for my family. For the love they show me. For my friends who are there when I need them and for all the many blessings we receive each year. My heart if full with Thanks.

Hey...Stop talking.

We're hungry...

Can we please


Oh My...Seth turned 17!

Seth did get his favorite birthday present. He love's Tim's Jalapeno chips. The party size bag and just for him. I think they were gone by the end of the night. He enoyed them!

I'm very FRUSTRATED with this blog!!!! It took me forever to get that last blog published! I must SERIOUSLY be blog challenged. I think I type and retyped that post at least 5 or 6 different times! Not to mention that I uploaded those Pics a million and one times! ARGH! If I have that problem again I will SCREAM... Well OK I guess I'm done venting. I feel better. Thanks for reading.
Hope you all have a great day!
