Lame Blogger

What's up with me and my not blogging? Well, let's just say that I have been gallivanting(to borrow a word from my mom). Let's see. Uh, ah, yes. Here we are.
We had a few changes at our house. Since Hayden decided to flood the kitchen, which seeped through the wall into the bedroom of our one bedroom house, we felt the need to take out all of our stuff and relocate into the living room. After we aired out the carpet, we decided that we would put the boys back in the bedroom and move our queen bed into the living room. The "foye" is now our living room and the partition is the divider of our "room." So the couch is acting as a go between. We played "mother may I" with Hayden yesterday and one of the questions was, "mother, may I step over the couch." Never done that one before in that game.
Next, Landon and Hayden came down with a terrible cold that really knocked the for a loop. Hayden was o.k., but I spent the next Tuesday in the ER with him wheezing and coughing. We got him on a nebulizer and then later on some steroids to help give him lung power.
The week of the 24th of July, we went to the Woodruff/Martin reunion. Let's just say that even with sick kids it was a ton of fun! We stayed in these really nice condos that seemed so spacious. They had like 15 feet ceilings and three bedrooms and 2 full size bathrooms. Brigham and Michelle were kind enough to let us have the master bedroom which had it's own deep tub.--Let's just say that I was in heaven!
My favorite part was the women's circle. That is a tradition they have of sharing recipes, good tips and new things we've learned. I love it. I came home with all kinds of new things. They are such great ladies. It was so good to spend time with old friends. I had met most of them the summer before we got married and haven't seen them since. Serge's favorite part was tackle spoons on game night.
On the 25th the Yardley's had their yearly reunion. It was great to see my cousins--whom I haven't seen since Hayden was 5 months old. They are such a wonderful family. I loved how my aunt Mildred, who is like 97 and in a rest home(and slightly senile) kept saying, "Roy(her husband, who has been dead for a year) will be so mad." We had a quiz and the oldest person there got a piece of Seas' candy--she couldn't eat it because she didn't have her teeth in.
They boys traveled well and that was a huge blessing.
Sorry this is a long post, but I have one more item. I got to visit my sister in La's Vegas on the way home. She and Brandon just purchased a little house(without a front yard--or a back one for that matter). It's just adorable. It was a foreclosure and so let's just say that the people who got kicked out didn't really clean before they left. My contribution to the house was cleaning the caked on grease on the stove, microwave and wall surrounding the stove. Why is it that Asian folks let it get that way? Hmm.
Craziness--her next door neighbor came knocking on her door at about 9pm and she opened it to find that it was a girl from Logandale. Her dad was our Bishop years ago and now is married with twin boys living right across from Charlotte. Small world. And--there are seven sets of twins in her ward. Nuts. Anywho, I loved spending time with Charlotte and her adorable girls(no offense Brandon, but you had to go to work and I didn't get to see you much). Her girls absolutely adore me, well, Sydney does. Sadie just cries. She doesn't know how much fun I really am.
So anywho, we're back and all pooped out. Boys are better, I'm almost better and we are home for a little.

The end.
