Labor Day....it was a labor anyway....



Well, it's been longer than it should have been. Lots have happened in the last little while, but it's not that important, right? Our biggest adventure was Labor Day weekend and the chaos that is mounting with every new grand-kid born. Teeny and I are finding that holidays are more of a labor than what they used to be...figures with three kids under 3 huh? We had a great time sleeping at Granny's and golfing, eating, parading, eating, playing, eating....you get the picture. A had a hard time sleeping one night so I spent a half an hour at 1am driving around Payson trying to get him to sleep...it worked after about five minutes. Poor kid was too tired to sleep. N and T were super as they always have been. I need to take a minute and just thank Teeny for her work while I'm at "work". She amazes me. She sacrifices so much for our family and I try to tell her how much I appreciate that, but it never seems to be enough. It's great having her in my life. She is the fun in my life. During the last three months (hard to believe) you'd hardly be able to tell we have twins. Our home is clean and in order, our kids are happy and well taken care of, and she still manages to make dinner even on days she is pushed to her limits. We've been throwing around the idea of moving to something bigger before we can't afford it anymore. Our neighborhood is in the process of moving out it seems. Three houses right next to ours have gone up for sale and sold within the last three months. We'd love to build our own home if we can. We've checked out different places for us to put our roots down again. Utah County isn't as cheap as we'd thought it would be though, so we'll see. I've been fighting gas prices on my bike and fail to understand how some people just keep driving around like gas is a dime a gallon. This last weekend was great. We had nothing on the agenda and did just that. We still got out, but for the most part our house was our haven this weekend. After a couple weeks of crazy we were ready for it. Yesterday we all took a nice fat Sunday nap together (same time, different rooms). It was nice to relax and be just our family for a bit. Our hearts have been with those in the Hurricane disaster lately and we wish them all well. The atrocities that reciprocated during the aftermath in terms of human behavior are beyond animalistic. It's as if people, or at least the slime of that community, enjoyed devastation. I know there are heros out there as well, but in these times I don't know how everyone could not be heros helping each other instead of committing crimes against thier neighbors. That's my two bits...

Where do I start, this has some really deep things written here! First who is the picture of with there hands in each others back pocket? and i love the one on the bike, so serious in driving it. I am totally with you on the crazy people down there in New Orlean - I can't even imagine acting like that! and one more thought - come live out by us and then you can save a lot of gas as you drive to work. Oh ya the Ferber thing didn't work. She cried for 45 minutes straight and the book said to stop and start again next night, so we are doing it again tonight- how long should this take?
