Bye for a while

Well this will be my last blog for a while, We are packing up and getting ready to go home to St.George. It can't come soon enough!! It has snowed here so much this week and Jeff had shoveled many times ,and I think he's ready for good old Dixie too.Our stay at Shane and Anngee's has been good, and they have taken such good care of us and we appriciate all that they have done for us. It's been a blast with Brax and Boo,they are so funny and full of energy,and we have loved the hugs and kisses at night before thier bedtime. Anngee should be able to write a book about the perils of having a mother in law downstairs 24=7. We've enjoyed getting to see all of our children and grandchildren, they are the best. Max and Mark had us come over for dinner on Monday nights, and we've had a variety of tasty dinners, I've got some new recipes now,instead of the good old stand by'e that I always fix. I get a kick out of Jeff Regin and Andrew with thier giggeling fits. And watching t.v. with them, it was always a good time. We got to see Pat more often , it seems he's always coming to our aid in one way or another.We enjoy him especially with his nieces and nephews, he's so cute with them.Dolly isn't sure about Pat yet, she barks at him.I've been able to watch most of the grandchildren at one time or another, I've had fun doing that. Kim asked me to cut her hair, that kind of scared me cause her hair was so long and I didn't want to goof it up, but I guess it turned out okay. Britt and Kim both have jobs now, I'm sure thier life is more hectic now, it was when I had to work plus run a household. We got to see Rochelle and Scott's new baby Ivy,and it looks like things are looking up for them and they can go home now, we are happy for them.
When we get home we won't have the internet for a while, until we get out of the mess we're in, and I'll miss the blogging thing, cause it's really fun to read the blogs and catch up with every one and what they are doing. I have to find a job so who knows what kind of job and how much I'll be working, but we'll see how it goes, then maybe after a few months maybe we can get the internet again. I hope so Pat gave us this awesome computer and I want to get to use it.
So now its good bye to snow and hello to St.George ,back to our home and being able to bug the heck out of Dad and Dockie, and I'm so looking forward to that. Also we miss the ward and all the great people there,so that will be a big plus too. So happy blogging till I can do it again. We love you guys!

It's almost Christmas

Well, Annette says it's time for me to blog,so here we go.It's still white outside and alot more snow is coming,thats okay as long as I don't have to drive in it. I don't like driving it,so I become a homebody when it snows. We are as ready as we'll ever be for Christmas. It's a year that has been tough,so Christmas is a little sparse this year, but I still enjoy the season and what it represents.
Today we went to church at our old ward, the one we went to for 21 years. We decided it was as close to being in our home ward as we could get up here. It was so great to get to see all of our good friends, and watch the wonderful Christmas program they had.
Well as of January 2 or 3 I will be going back to good old St.George, I will try and find a job so I can help us get out of the hole we've dug ourselves into. Hopefully something will pop up. I can hardly wait for Jeff to get to come back, so we can get back to our normal life. Our children have been awesome to us, but I'm sure they would like to get back to thier normal lives also.
Tonight Jeff was watching a t.v. program about Yellowstone, it showed some buffalo's and foxes and Dolly(our little dog) started growling at the t.v. she was going to go get them, I put her closer to the T.v. and when the fox went off the screen,she went to the side of the t.v. to get it,but she couldn't find it. It really had us laughing, she's so cute and keeps us going, we are so attached to our dog,we love her.
Okay Terry,Leana, and Nadine, it's your turn to blog.
We hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, and I look forward to hearing what everyone does for Christmas. Take care till next time!

Want to go home!!

So here we are in West Jordan, and today it snowed,it stopped for a little while, but then it started up again tonight.I have never been fond of snow,needless to say it's made me homesick. I don't like driving in it, and besides that, it's cold. Okay most of my children love snow and are excited. Anngee,Brit, and Kimi I know really look forward to the snow, so it made them happy.
Last weekend we went to St.George on Friday night and came back here on Sunday morning, we had to get papers cause Jeff is going on social security starting in Feb. We loved being home. We raked the leaves and mowed the lawns. Today was the day that our ward in St. George did the annual leaf raking party, and dad said after they got all done the winds blew hard and alot more leaves fell, so I guess when I get back to St. George, that will be one of the fun things I'll get to do again. It's still better than shoveling snow!
So Christmas is just around the bend. It's been fun being with family and seeing all the fun decorations they all have.The grandchildren are excited, and that's fun to see also. I hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful Christmas carols, and all the pretty lights. Take care till next time.

Number 17 is in the oven!!

Just the other day I was thinking how strange is was that we didn't have any of our children expecting. I figured it would probably be a couple of years before we would get another grandchild. Then yesterday I recieved a call that indeed we had another grandchild coming.Can you guess who? It's Ted. He's excited, and a little nervous. We are happy for him. At least now we know he has someone to share holidays with, and he's not alone. Her name is Barbara, and she sounds like an awesome person. We are excited for #17, the due date is July 22.
On another note, I got to go with Rochelle and Scott yesterday , to the hospital. I got to hold little Ivy. She is so cute and precious. I loved it. She looks good, and I can hardly wait for her to get to go home so her cute bigger brothers can hold her, hopefully by Christmas, we'll wait and see.
We will be having our family Chistmas party this weekend. We will take pictures ,and I will have Shane or Anngee help me post the pictures, cause I haven't figured that out yet. But they are good to help me. I hope everyone has a good day. Bye for now.

Well, Thanksgiving was good, every thing went well except for Anngee, she got sick. It was fun getting to see Anngee's parents. They are such nice people. We love it when Pat comes, we don't get to see him as much as we would like, he's a good kid,we're glad he's ours.
Jeff got more work in this week. His work is moving to a new shop, and there's alot of stuff to move, and get up and running, so he got to help a little bit.We are so glad that they let Jeff go back to work there, I think it helped alot the fact that Shane is there, he put in a good word for us.
We went to Leana and Calvin's house yesterday. We called and asked if we could come by and drop off a gift, and they invited us to dinner. We had so much fun, great food, and we laughed alot, Tom and his wife and Tammy and her husband was there also. What fun it is to get to see Leana, and her cute family. We found out she has a blog too, so now we can keep up with each others family. I love the fact that we don't have to write a whole lot of letter's to every one and then mail them off. This is much easier. I remember mother writing letters to grandma Leany and grandma Eyre, I'm just not that good. Thank goodness for technology, even though I'm not good at this computer stuff, I do enjoy reading blogs
Our baby Ivy is doing okay, she has one more operation to get done on the intestines, then maybe after she heals from that surgery ,we can go see her again.Rochelle and Scott just keep plugging along, they are such good troopers.
Anngee and Shane have been decorating for Christmas. Anngee is in the process of painting a scene on her front window, all my daughter's are so good at doing that kind of thing. Anngee is quite the home interior decorater. Her home always looks so cute.
It's Sunday morning, and time for me to get ready for church. I hope all is well with every one. Bye for now.

Our Life.

Hi, I guess it's time to update my blog.There's just not alot different going on with us right now. Last Thursday night I was bored and there was nothing I wanted to watch on t.v., so I put up our Christmas tree. It's a small tree,but I like it,and it works for us.Even though we haven't done any Christmas shopping (you need money for that)I still love the season. I love to decorate for it. This year seems how we aren't in my our house I don't get to put up all my fun items we've collected through the years. But I brought 5 manger's, and a Santa and a snowman. I collect mangers I have 21 of them. I love Christmas music so I've been listening to Christmas songs since the day after Halloween.
Today we get to have Max and Marks family over for dinner. Since we've been here in West Jordan, they have had us come to thier house every Monday night for dinner. We decided we would have them come here this week.Shane and Anngee are so nice to let us have kids come and visit us with thier families. They put up with alot from us. They are the best.
I'm still babysitting for Chelle at her inlaws. Her baby is doing pretty good, you need to read her blog to see how things are going for little Ivy, she is real good at explaining that kind of info.
I guess either Tuesday or Wednesday night I will bake pies for Thanksgiving. I'm going to use my roaster oven to bake pies, we'll see how that goes. Nadine said she's done it that way before I hope it works for me.
The colder it gets, the more we miss St. George, we miss our life there. I even think Dolly misses it too. She can run outside and play and do what she wants when she wants,cause she has a doggie door in St George at the house. Here she has to wait for us to take her out. Although she does love playing with Anngee's cat.
I don't have much more to say. I hope every one is doing great. We hope you all have a super Thanksgiving. Bye for now.

I have that "sinking feeling"

As you know we are in Shane and Anngee's basement.Well today Shane and Jeff put in a kitchen sink, I'm so happy,I've been doing dish's in the bathtub all the time since we've been here. I will never take the kitchen sink for granted again. Life is much easier now. Thank you Shane!!!
On another note,I've been having fun watching Rochelle and Scott's boys.They kind of have been having a hard time with the fact that mom and dad take off every day to go be with the baby. But after a while they accept it and we have fun, and go for walks, and read books. Corbin is so smart, he can tell time, and read. Pretty good for a boy who is just turning 4 today. Dex is so much fun, so much of what he does reminds me of Chelle when she was young, I think he looks alot like her also. Corbin is a carbon copy of his dad. They are so cute
Thats all for now, we hope every one is happy , have a good day!

Grandchildren are the Best!

We thought it would be so hard being here in West Jordan,cause,we love St. George so much,and we do miss it there. But we are here and the best part about being here is getting to see all our grandchildren. We have the cutest grandchildren ever! We've got to baby sit most of them,except Jeff,Regin and Andrew, but we eat with them once a week, and they are so much fun. They suffer through watching "Danceing with the Stars" with us cause they know we love to watch that program every week. We haven't been around Rochelle's children much, because they live in Boise, but they are here in town for the birth of thier baby , so we get to see her children, her oldest son Corbin finally figured out that I'm grandma,that made me so happy. Dexter is such a sweetie,and we are enjoying getting to be with him more. Then of course ,our lttle Ivy who just arrived last Friday is beautiful. Braxton and little Shayne(boo) are here for us all the time ,we get to see them daily cause we live with them, they come down and visit us and we get kisses and hugs from them daily,we love it. We've been able to see Kimi's children and they just love having grandpa tickle them,and they are growing up too fast,we've been able to babysit them a couple of times. Brits children are doing well also ,I got to babysit them a few times last week, they love grandpa's tickles also , they scream and laugh so hard, Ryan and Rayden are in school, they are getting big to fast also.So this is one of the best advantages to being here.
By the way it's been super getting to see our children and thier spouse's too ,we love you all, and appreciate all of you and all that you have done, and are still doing for us. We are learning to readjust to the cold weather, and we do miss seeing dad and Dockie on a regular basis. But all in all, if we have to be here for work we do have the best family ever to be here with.

Update on our baby Ivy

We went to Primary Childrens Hospital today to see our Ivy. She looks absolutely perfect, you would never know to look at her that she had any problems. Her liver is on the wrong side, she doesn't have a spleen, her intestines work, not the way that most peoples work , but they work,they might have to do surgery on the intestines later down the road, but for now they are fine. She will have her heart surgery the first of next week. She's breathing on her own, and she is so beautiful.

Thanks to all of you and your prayers, please keep praying for her so she can continue to get better.

Rochelle and Scott look good also ,Chelle says Scott has been there for her , he took Chelle in the wheel chair fromUniversity hosp. to Primary Childrens hosp. last night at 10:30 so she could hold thier baby. Its quite a long walk, he stayed there at the hospital last night, he hasn't left her side at all. They are blessed to have each other,a match made in heaven, I'm sure!

Baby News

Today November 7 2008 we were blessed with our sweet number 16 grandchild. Ivy Maxine Brunson was born at 2:15P.M. she weighed 6 lbs 14 oz. She has dark hair and blue eyes. Rochelle had her naturally, and she is super tired cause she couldn't sleep last night,But all in all things are going good. The Dr's said Ivy is a good candidate for surgery. Her lungs are working well enough for her to have it. They aren't sure when yet, sometime very soon to get her little heart working right. I don't know all the technical terms, for all that she has going on, all I know is she's here and doing well under the circumstances, and I am so happy thankfull and relieved.
Chelle and Scott had awesome priesthood blessing last night, and we know every body has been praying for her,and thankfully Heavenly Father answered our prayers ,and with all the faith and love and support of every one she will be able to overcome all her problems.
I can hardly wait for the call to come and tell us that we can go see her, we have to wait till after her first surgery,but once we get to go we will take pictures and post them.
Thank you to all who have been concerned and called and fasted and prayed with us, we love you and will keep you posted on all developments.

Getting Started

Okay, this is totally out of my comfort zone but, I'm going to give blogging a try. As all of you know, we(me and Jeff) are staying here at Shane and Angie's home, they have let us take over the basement.(Thank You, Shane and Angie) We will be here for quite a long time. We have it fixed up pretty cozy,and we love hearing the pitter patter of our grandchildrens steps above us.
Patrick came over yesterday and set us up with a computer,the nicest one we've ever had(Thank You Pat).We are blessed with the best children ever,we appreciate every thing that they have all done for us. Any way we are doing the oppisite of what most people do that live in St. George, we are spending the cold winter month's here and going back in the spring when it starts to get warm.I'm not fond of snow at all, and I mhate the cold. But, I do enjoy my sweet husbands company,so, I'm here.
We are having fun seeing all our grandchildren ,and most of our children, we don't get to see our Ted as much as we would like, but, we have got to see Chelle and we don't really get to see her very often sice thier move to Boise. But all in all life is going good. Everybody keep smileing till next time.
