What's Been Going On?

There have been a few happenings in our lives over the past few days. Nothing to extraordinary or anything, but we have hit a few milestones!
  • Friday night Kim & Luke took half the hoard and had a sleepover. My kids are so lucky to have such a fun Aunt and Uncle. They ate pizza, made brownies, played, and I am sure kept Kim and Luke up way past their bedtime! It was so nice to have "half" a break that night. Thanks Kim and Luke!!!

  • Saturday morning I met up with the Jensen girls (& Josh) for a Birthday Breakfast for the newest member of the Jensen's, Shannon. We had a delicious meal, with great conversation. I love my in laws and I am glad Shannon has joined the troops! (for those of you who don't know, Shannon is Jill's friend and has been accepted into the Jensen Fold.)
Shannon, Josh, Heidi, Me, Jamie

Jenny, Teri, Jill, Shannon
  • I had to work a lot over the weekend. I admitted someone (who was still very young) with brain cancer who ended up passing away the next day. It made me thankful for my health and my families health. I am so blessed!
  • Paige and Morgan are finally old enough (and not sick) for nursery!!! We took them for the first time on Sunday. They were so cute walking to nursery with Oakley. They had no problem joining in the fun. I still can't believe they are that old!
It was a chore to get them to stand next to each other and smile. So this is what we got for a pic.

Oakley was so excited to be the big sister and have Paige and Morgan join her in nursery. We actually double the class with our family.
  • Heidi, James, and Josh came up to play yesterday afternoon. My boys LOVE when they come play. I have no pictures of our adventurous afternoon, but everyone had fun eating Wendy's, playing with toys, getting presents, and running and chasing each other. Thanks for making the trip guys!
  • Last night ended with a dinner with our old neighbors from Kaysville. The Allens are some of our favorite people and we hadn't seen them for a couple years. They came up with their 3 boys and you would have thought our kids had been friends forever. They all joined up and went downstairs and played. It was so nice. Unfortunately, I have no pics of this event either. I guess I wasn't in the picture taking mood yesterday. It was good to catch up and hang out last night and it better not be 2 years before we see them again!
  • And last, but definitely not least. Actually, it may be the most exciting news I am reporting (no offense to everyone else that made this list). We went all day yesterday with NO incident!!! I finally get to change my ticker!! WOOT WOOT!!

I love the girls dresses. I'm pretty sure that Kody is bigger than all of them Oakley included. What cute girls. I was just talking to Tiffany about you guys. We should all get together sometime for dinner. You like to plan parties right?

Thanks again for last night! The food was delicious and the company was great! It was fun to see the kids play so well together. It WON'T be two years before we see you again...it is our turn to host though! I am happy your ticker went up yesterday...way to go!

Okay, the picture of the 3 girls has got to be one of my favorites! So cute! I'm glad you had an incident free day - let's hope it starts a trend!

Thank you again for coming on Saturday. I LOVE that I get to be an honorary member of the Jensen family. I'm so lucky!

*I'm sad to hear that that woman passed away... so young!

Jake and Becky Veigel Family said...

CONGRATS on 2 days with no puke. That is truly and accomplishment worthy of great celebration!! Congrats on the girls uneventful entry into nursery. Jake has tried taking Jack in during Sunday School and Jack is not having any of it. Maybe in 3 weeks when he's "officially in" we'll have a miracle? Cute new St. Patty's background!
