I just found out last night that I am going to be a grandma again. Cachay and Joey are having another one. Their kids will be 12 months apart. There goes her diving in Hawaii. She is nervous. Joey is excited. He is telling everyone. Just like a man. He doesn't have to carry it, deliver it or take care of it. I am excited for them. That will be 5 grandkids for me.

We had a great Thanksgiving. I had all of my children there. It may be the last time in many years we will all be together. When Tim comes home from his mission Bobby will be gone on his. Who knows where the rest of us will be. It was great. My parents were there and Joe's mom was here. It was very nice. Our dishwasher decided to crash because one of my lovely children decided to put dish washing detergent for the sink in it and bubbled the heck out of it and shorted the works. So we had to wash everything by hand. My new dishwasher and trash compactor and faucet are now installed thanks to my wonderful, he can do anything husband. He is amazing. We really didn't need a new compactor, I don't know why he bought a new one--oh yes I do--we needed one with a stainless front not a black front, because everything in the kitchen is stainless now except the fridge. No I am not going to change that. Tomorrow Tim and Chris talk. I guess I better bring my Kleenex. I am getting soft in my old age. Bobby gets his eagle that evening. It will be a busy wonderful day. Tim leaves in 9 days. I need to mark his clothes. He is mostly ready. He can't take much. He only gets to take 44 pounds to Cape Verde. The planes are small there I guess. Or maybe the row boat. lol He is getting excited to go on this new adventure. I am excited for him. He will be greatly missed around here but I know he needs this mission as much as it needs him.

We were outside putting up our nativity on the lawn and this car came by staring at all the houses, which isn't out of the ordinary. The Flaggs went by and saw me talking with the guy. He was black, skinny, wore his cap to the side, driving a 04-05 Escalade. Sandy (girl living with the Flaggs) said it was Flavo flave. Some has been rapper. I looked him up. He used to wear a clock biiiiggg clock around his neck and had his teeth with his name in them. I don't really know if it was him or not but I really didn't care.

I hope everyone had a wonderful, thankful turkey day. I pray for my neighbors mother who has a bad bug of somekind that mutates and avoids antibiotics. She is not doing very well and I hope that they don't lose her. She is very contagious. They have to gown up and wear masks to see her. She is in quarantine in the hospital. A nonmember friend suggested we give her a blessing. How do I suggest that to my neighbor?

Wo be unto him

My daughter Sarah has a best friend from high school. This girl was never going to get married for have kids, even from pressure from us. lol She got married to a good guy. She is pregnant, about 4 week less than Sarah. Well, her husband lost it the other day and beat her up. All I know is that if that happened to one of my daughters-wo be unto the guy! Her whole family would be on him in no time. The guy took all their money out of the bank. He told her he wanted nothing to do with the baby then turned around and told her he was going to take the baby from her. Her parents are well to do and have hired a lawyer. I think she should have reported this and filed a restraining order. She needs to cover her toosh. He can't get any rights to this baby. She was so happy. He just snapped for some reason. She works and he told her she needed to bring in more $$$ well guess wh0 she works for. Her husbands business.

This world is so evil and gettng worse.

My Family

After the temple we decided to do family pictures. These were taken with Tim's little camera. We had a friend of Sarah's take the real ones. We also had pictures taken with my mom and my brothers family. My brother has a son going on a mission. He enters the MTC on Wednesday. He is going to New Jersey. It is neat that he and Tim are going at the same time. He leaves the MTC the day that Tim enters. It is so nice having Chris home. The family is together for a month. I can't wait to receive the blessings from having another missionary. I love having them on missions. I worry like heck but love haveing them serve the Lord. Tim will be so good. He loves the people. I can't wait.

Long time no post

Well, Tim went to the temple today. It was a great day. There were quite a few people from the ward there today. There were some from other wards supporting Tim. The stake Pres from our other Stake -Pres. Hastings was there. Of course he is our long time friend. We even saw his old Primary President there. You know it shouldn't bug me but my brother and his family came from Mapleton, Utah. My brother does not have a recommend. His wife does. Yet Joe has 10 brothers and sisters and a mother and not one called, or attempted to come. I even offered to drive to St George to get his mom and she said no. How pathetic is that? What a supportive family. It just bugs me. We try to go to as many things as we possibly can because we know it is important. I felt so bad when we couldn't go to his sisters sealing last weekend but my nephew went through the temple and had his farewell. We asked Sarah if she would go in our place and she did. Poor Tim, I know he says he doesn't care but he does. He knows who loves him and supports him. I have been dealing with things like this for 29 years and it still hurts and lets me know who cares about my family. Enough with letting out my saddness. After the temple we went to lunch and then came back to house for family pictures. We took some at the pool on the rocks. It was fun. Then we had stake conference. It was the first time in 29 years that Joe has asked me to sing in his choir. So I did. It was kinda fun. All in all it was a great day.
Chris came home on Wednesday. That was so great. It is nice to have him home. He is glad to be here and is always telling us he loves us and loves being home. Even though it is weird. He is such a great kid. I don't know what I am going to do with two comedians around the house. He and Bobby are going to kill me.
I love my family. I love telling people I have 9 kids. My husband is the greatest! My kids and their spouses and my grandkids are the greatest.

It is finally finished. Out new office is finally finished. We are moving in. We got our finale after about killing Joe. Now he just has to get a final for the mechanic building. That will be a little tougher. It is a very nice building. I just have to worry about paying for it now. We still have things that need to be done. Like our name on the front and the glass etched inside but we moved in. The phones are working and the computers are tooooo I think. Our computer guy in working on that this weekend I hope. We already got an offer on the old building and land. It is nice to have this done. Moving is the hard part. Most of the stuff involves men throwing away what is not needed and that is not easy they just want to move things and keep piling it up. They don't like to go through things and throw away. Maybe life will get to be a little normal again soon. After I get caught up again. We have changed from Cox to Embarq for our internet service. Embarq has the fastest. It is awesome. I will probably change the one I have at home also. Forget Cox. It is always messing up. Sarah has Embarq and she said it never messes up.

Finally done

It is finally finished. Our office building is finally finished.
