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.
