The Boring Life

When Logan asked me earlier in the week why I hadn't updated the blog I told him that life was just too boring around here - he replied that life is NEVER boring around here!

But I think on the excitement scale the last couple of weeks have been on the low end. But I know that is about to change because the 3 college kids come home in two days! I am so excited!

And yes Logan - I can't wait to hear you yell MUDDAH!

I spent some time digging out the boys room so they could sleep in their beds and I've been making major grocery shopping lists and menu plans. I see ALOT of cooking in my future.

It will be a busy week with the kids home and all of Tessa's ballet rehearsals and performances but we are going to love every minute of it.

Here's a brief breakdown of our past week:

Monday - Tessa to the Carrie Underwood concert with Hannah

Tuesday - Book Club for Leigh Anne even though she didn't read the book - just couldn't get in to it despite the fact it is Jim's favorite book - Undaunted Courage.

Wednesday - Temple Baptism trip for Tessa and Leigh Anne. Jim to Seattle for the day

Thursday - CM Meeting for Leigh Anne and then Twilight Premiere

Friday - Dance Class for Jim and Leigh Anne and sleep! Trying to recover from Twilight Premiere

Saturday- Jim flies to Spokane for the day to attend temple sealing of James Fowler and his family. Tessa has dance rehearsal all day and Leigh Anne enjoys a day home alone! Makes a good dent in her Christmas shopping! Tessa goes to see Twilight again with a friend.

My Young Women's lesson was on Preparing for Change. I used the talk given by President Monson last conference - Joy in the Journey. If you haven't read it - do so.

College Kid Update:

Cali - wants everyone to know she LOVED Twilight and everything about it!!

Logan - had 3 dates this week with 3 different girls! Yeah!

Clark - as far as I know all he has done this week is work, school, study, watch BYU football .

Clark also brought back Emily's crock pots, and even fixed a part on one of them for her. One of your other sons can not say the same thing :)

It may seem boring to you but any news is wonderful for the rest of us. Have a great week, we wish we were closer!

Clark's a good boy! Now about that Logan - did he return damaged goods!!

Glad you enjoy hearing about our boring life! Wish we were closer too - thanks for feeding the kids and the rest of the whole dang family today!! What a woman you are - wish I had been there to help!

The talk by President Monson was so good. I loved it too. Enjoy the time with the kids.

Your picture of Jim and you is so nice. Peter and I equal 104! YIKES. Peter is the better part of those digits too. Hehe.

Have a great Thanksgiving.

I think you both look terrific for combined ages of 100. . . . .Goodness that makes Dad and mom 162. . . .lots of great years in there. Wish we were all closer in distance to enjoy the ups and downs of life together I just got back from making 80 visits to people in my ward with the candy corn blessing (actually just gave the whole bag and tied it with a green bow). Our ward is only 4 blocks by 4 blocks, so it is really easy to make lots of visits. The weather here today was so warm that I was eating lunch outside with a friend and we had to go into the restaurant. . . .It's almost Dec. . . .wow. But our gas prices are down to $1.81. YEAH!

Tamara - you are amazing. How blessed your neighbors and ward family is to have you!! Wish we were closer too - I would have helped you pass out all those candy corn blessings! Can't wait - kids home tomorrow!!

I can almost afford to drive again - we are not quite that low here but getting closer!!
