Fun in St. George

Todd had to go to tax training in St. George last weekend so he suggested that we all come along. We had SO much fun together! In addition to missing the really bad windstorm that was happening here in Bountiful (which we were really grateful for), we went on a few fun hikes, went shopping, out to eat, and enjoyed each others company.

One of the last days we were there Joseph started dancing in Subway as we were eating lunch. That is SO not like him to do that in public. I whipped out my phone and recorded him. Then, he decided that he was going to dance out in the shopping square, in Old Navy (which I didn't get a recording of - bummer!), and even Walmart. He said that because we were 5 hours away he didn't know anyone and wasn't as inhibited. It was really fun to watch him. As you can hear from the video I couldn't stop laughing.

Crazy Lady

I had a really funny experience the other day. I went to pick up Truman for Joseph's football carpool and as I was flipping a U turn on Bountiful Blvd. in front of Truman's house I honked as usual. I noticed a couple just north of his house walking on the sidewalk towards me. I thought, "oops, they're probably thinking I'm honking at them". Just before I came to a stop in front of his house, I noticed that the couple was President and Sister Uchtdorf! (for those of you who don't know who that is check him out here).

I thought, "Oh great, they probably think I'm some crazy lady who noticed them walking and flipped my car around in front of them to talk to them". He was very friendly and walked up to the car. I rolled down the window and said, "Sorry, I wasn't honking at you. I'm here picking up someone for football. And as I was turning I said to myself "Hey I know who that is". He saw Joseph in the front seat and said, "Hi, what's your name?" and then he shook his hand and asked about Jordan Nellis and Maria in the middle seat. He didn't see Emily in the back seat though. He also introduced us to his wife. As Truman got in the car he said, "Oh you have enough in here for a team". As they walked back to the sidewalk and I was pulling away I yelled out, "I loved your talk" (referring to the Forget Me Not talk he gave at the last R.S. mtg. which I loved). He was probably wondering which one I was talking about since he's given 3 talks in the last few months. :{

Anyway, it was a really funny experience and a really neat one too. They were both so sweet and genuine, and it was neat to know that they live right here in my area. I had to chuckle as I drove away wondering what they must have thought of this crazy lady in a suburban flipping a U-turn and honking in front of them. :) I'm sure they get recognized all of the time!

4 months later....

I can't believe it's been 4 months since I've posted something on this blog! Crazy how time flies.

Here are just some pictures that I thought were funny:

The kids love their dog. Notice the gray flower clip on his head and the football pads? It's a good thing he's patient!!

We've had a fun time hanging out at the Bickel's new house (and pool)!

The kids love to be silly when I'm taking their pictures:

Apparently they weren't sure if I knew they had a bum or not!!

Joseph is finally playing football this year. He's waited a long time for this!

The girls patiently waiting on the hood of the car for football practice to be over...

The kids started school! Here are the 3 still in elementary:

Beautiful Easter Message

We watched this short video last night for family night. It is such a powerful reminder of the loving gift that Jesus Christ gave to each of us. Every time I watch it I can't help but weep. To know that I don't have to go through life alone is such a blessing and a comfort to me. And to know that because of the gift of the Savior, I'll be able to see my beautiful mother again someday is something that words can't even express.

Spring Break

Usually for Spring Break we don't do much of anything since Todd is never around and I haven't wanted to venture out on my own with 4 little ones in tow. But this year I wanted to change all of that and let the kids have a great week instead of being stuck at home. So I wracked my brain and tried to think of fun things to do. This is what I came up with:

Horseback riding.....
lunch at Carl's Jr. (their favorite)
Then a dollar movie.

Toured the Conference Center which was really neat!

Then, we went to Wheeler Farm where the kids got to milk cows (Emily has been talking about doing it for months now):
Boondocks all day!!
We were so exhausted by the time we got home!! The kids said on the way home that they just wanted to watch movies for the next 2 days, which was great with me. So Thursday, we hung out, watched movies and ate treats, and then Friday was kind of the same thing, only I went to my aunt's funeral for several hours. It was a very good week and we had a ball together!!
