Time Keeps Slipping Away!

Forever since my last post….

My birthday is tomorrow. My friends took me to lunch today. It was very fun. Mike is planning to take me to dinner tomorrow night. I should be nice.

We are all getting over being sick. We aren’t sure what we had, but it was miserable. I sent Colton back to school today. I guess the winter weather has brought on the colds.

We had a nice Halloween. Brenna was a Princess and Colton was Darth Vader. They had a great time. We let them eat a bunch of candy and then they donated it to the Sugar Plum Fairy, who comes and takes their candy back to her kingdom, to help build the homes(out of candy). They were so excited for her to come and take it. They haven’t missed it at all. Mike and I debated on telling them one more story that isn’t true, but since they still believe in Santa we figured it would be fun.

Colton(7) is taking piano lessons from my neighbor. He is doing really well. I babysit her daughter 1 day a week In return, She teaches Colton for free. Brenna is in a little dance class. She loves it. Brenna just turned 3 on October 25. She is a very girly girl. She loves dolls and pink. She is excited to be able to be in Sunbeams soon.

We are sticking around here for Thanksgiving. We visited Mike’s parents in Idaho last month. We are looking forward to the holidays. They are my favorite time of year. I really am grateful for all that we have. We are so blessed!

Mike is still working for PMI and seems to enjoy it. We own a website that we sell Fairy and Princess dress ups from. I pack and ship them. Halloween was pretty busy. We are still trying to figure out our finances and catch up, but for now we are still in our home.

I was the Primary Secretary for our ward. Several months ago, they released me and called me to the Stake Primary Secretary. It is a different calling, I miss being in Primary on the ward level. I do a lot of note taking and secretarial reporting and such. I do get to visit other wards, which is fun.

Haley and Derek bought a very small condo and spent the summer putting in new tile and paining. It looks very nice. They seem very happy. I don’t get to see them very often. They are both working full time and we are just “too far away”. There is a new highway that was just built that makes the drive so much nicer. It is called Pioneer Crossing. We can take Redwood Road to the American Fork Main street exit, bypassing Lehi entirely. It sure has changed things. Haley and Derek haven’t driven it yet…..

Melinda is hopefully bringing Lucas home from the hospital just after Thanksgiving. I know she is very stressed about him coming home. Has she sent you any pictures of him recently? He is getting so big. We know we really won’t be able to visit him once he gets home. We have to stay away for now. He will have full time nurses at their home for several weeks at first. His little lungs are so sick. Is a miracle he has done as well as he is. This is a rough time of year for him with all the sickness going around.
