And yes ... that is my actual age! I'm not ashamed of my thirty three years of life! I had a wonderful birthday, that really extended over 2 days. On Saturday June 21 Kent took Isaac off my hands for a few hours so I could finish my brother's scrapbook ... a much needed task but a fun one! In the afternoon the boys went off so I could finally go to a session at the Albuquerque temple, the first time in over a year! I hate to admit it, but I was incredibly sleepy ... I'm sure it has to do with the peaceful feelings of that sacred place, but it helps a ton not having a little boy yelling,"Mama, Mama..." at every turn! ;0) We watched a movie later that night. Sunday, the day of, I recieved my birthday present, Jack Johnson CD, and a massage. (what are husbands for?!!)
Thank you to all those who send cards, e-cards, etc. It was so kind of you. We've been so terribly busy with getting ready for the move that I haven't had the chance to email everyone, but I vow to do so within the next 2 days. I have to admit I'm pretty proud of myself ... we're more prepared for moving this time than we were before. I have everything that can be pack, done and ready before we leave for Arizona. The meals we'll need when we come back for those 3 days are made and frozen, ready to go so there'll be no cooking for those last few days. My brother's scrapbook will be done tommorrow and mailed Thursday ... it's a nice feeling to be prepared. Here's proof!
The previous weekend we had a wonderful 'Farewell Party' with the Roberts family and the Laws. Tiffany Law and I are Visiting Teaching partners and saw Emily Roberts monthly. Darin Law home teachs us as well as the Roberts ... so we're rather a tightly connect group. Tiffany made us a wonderful meal and we chatted while the children played.
The Roberts have moved to Houston as well and will be within the same stake boundaries, and possibly the same ward.
Their little girl, Eden LOVES Isaac. Here she is her 'jello face'!
Here's Darin with their daughter Rylie ... apparently Rylie had a UTI and later that night they went to the ER because her fever was so high. Eight hours later the doctors finally saw them and they figured out what was wrong. Who says family life isn't thrilling!!! ;0)
Isaac was 'all-boy' that night, crying a fit when he could no longer play in the dirt! - the joy of rocks!
