It's Been a Long time!
We have had so many things going on in our family I don't want t bore anyone so I'll just start off with a question. Has anyone read Hunger Games and what did you think of it? I loved the first book liked the second book and the third book I thought was very thought provoking how ever to violent for me. I didn't like the way either side was willing to kill off thousands of people and it makes you think WHAT WOULD YOU DO.
So on a lighter note. Am I the only one in the world that didn't watch the Super Bowl tonight? I didn't even watch the Add's and I usually love them. Can't believe we were a Football free zone today because Brent usually can watch three games right in a row with out blinking an eye.
I am Still working at Sears although it is our SLOW time of year so I am not getting many hours. You would think I would have a spotless house and my laundry would be all done and all but NOOOOO. I do watch Tanner one day a week for Jennifer and Chloe every once in a while for Megan who is going to school. It has been a long time since we had a baby in our family so we are sure enjoying them.
Alex has been gone for 7 months now and will be home around May. We are so looking forward to having him home. I think Megan will be done with her classes about the time he gets home so that will be great.
Brent is turning 65 this Summer and want's to retire I'm trying to talk him in to working until he is 66 to get his full retirement but we will see how that goes. He is the Executive Sce. in the ward and he is thinking about becoming a temple worker if he retires.
I am looking forward to a new block of the month class this month for quilting even though I havn't finished the two previous year's quilt's yet. As I was trying to clean up a little in my sewing room last night I came to the realization that I could sew from now to the end and not run out of fabric.
I'm looking forward to the Spring and time to get out of the house it seems like Winter has lasted much too long. I haven't been working on my 70 new things yet so I will get on the ball with that and keep everyone posted on how I am doing.

Fun Camping trip with the Tye Family.

I had such a good time at camp this year! Maybe because last year I had sergery and didn't get to go, and maybe because I so needed to get away.
This has been such a busy year with everything we have been doing to our house and work I was over due for a get away. It was short but sweet. We had a lot of fun at Lilly Lake with the kids and a little boat they enjoyed the water. It was so cold I had to move into the sun to keep warm.
All the Grand kids and Great Grand kids went to the river and made a little damn so they could have a better swimming hole by the time they got done it was time to go back to camp and no one got to swim in it much. We told the kids we would hurry and eat dinner then go on a ride to find a Moose. It's a good thing we found one after an hour car ride. I just love to see the Moose.
We went on a few walks and then just sat and chilled. There is a place called fairyland in another campground so the kids all painted a rock and then we took them over to make the Tye place in the fairy garden.
Thank you Dad we Sure Had Fun!

Alex Leaves for Iraq, Mom Cries.

Our life could not get any more hectic, It seems I have run from one thing to another all Summer. I guess that is what keeps us young.
Our Air Conditioning went out last fall so we had to replace it and the furnace this year. I wouldn't be satisfied until I got several bids because I was raised by my Dad. That took me a long time but I think we got a very good deal.
Dad turned 85 in June and he wanted to go camping in Wyoming so we all went to Nathan's family ranch for a wonderful family trip. Fun times They took garbage can and heated it over the fire then the boys took a bath I thought they were so cute.
We left the ranch just in time to get home and have family pictures taken and celebrate Fathers Day.
Next weekend it was a good bye party for Alex on Friday and Taylorsville Days on Saturday With all the music and fireworks. Great fun for the kids. Sunday Was a Sad, Sad day we went to the National Guard Airport and said good bye to Alex He left for Iraq. It's so hard to see your children leave.
Tye and Marshall took off our roof and put a new one on the next week they didn't have any work and wanted to do it before they left. Then I had new rain gutters put on the house ( only two bids)
I had to work over the 4th of July weekend because I had taken so many days off but we did have a fun BBQ with Wendy and her family and then watch the boys fireworks after dinner.
Monday Tye and Marshall left to do a job in North Dakoda they will be gone for a few months.
Jennifer is adopting a baby so the next week the birth Mother went into labor about 6 weeks early. They got it stoped and were just hopeing she would make it another week. She has almost made it two weeks now.
So on Lori's Birthday the 12th we went over to Jennifer's house and painted her nursery. The next night we took the Girls and Wendy's Family out to celebrate their Birthdays And then I had to get sewing because we thought this baby would come and have no blankets.
We took C.J. to see Toy Story 3 on Friday and on Saturday I woke up with such a cough I hope C.J. doesn't get sick.
Saturday was Annika's wedding open house for her friends in Utah It was in a beautiful yard and Annika and Aaron looked so happy.
In the next two weeks we have the Tye family Campout and have to get a room ready for our Niece Ellen to come and stay with us for the next year. I thought the older you got the more life slowed down. OH WELL CONSIDER THE ALTERNATIVE!
