Boy, How time flies..........

I can't believe that I haven't posted since July (not that anyone has missed us ; ). Lori, thanks for your comment. Now that I know at least one person is reading, I'll keep writing. BTW Lori, I enjoy your blog as well. It is a nice way to see how the families are growing.

Well, Jennaka is now 29 months old and I think her favorite sentence is, "NO, MOMMY, NO"! She is talking up a storm these days. She cracks herself up by saying things like, "Mommy farted" in her sweet two year old girly voice. She is so precious with giving us three kinds of kisses; Fish kisses, Eskimo kisses, and Butterfly kisses. She is totally into the "Princesses" of Disney and into getting into anything that is mommy's. As much as I hate to see her "grow up" this is one stage that I will gladly say goodbye to.

McKayDee is almost 14 months and she started walking about 2 1/2 weeks ago. She looks like a victim of child abuse with all of the bruises on her head. I don't get it, humans are supposed to be the most "intelligent" of the species but you wonder sometimes why giraffes, horses, deer, well, most animals it seems, can walk soon after birth, yet it takes a human anywhere from 8, 9, or even 18 months (or more) to walk. Let's not even get into the talking thing. I heard it said (not gospel) that there is a reason that babies can't talk when they are born. They are so fresh from Heaven that they would be able to tell us all about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Well, who knows but it sure is funny to hear the beginnings of language going on in our home. Little McKayDee is trying to say, "Peek-a-boo" and it ends up sounding like, "eekadoo". Precious little ones.

Luis and I are hanging in there. We are stressed trying to find a larger place to live and have found a few places that we really like but then we don't end up getting the place. It is frustrating looking all the time only to be disappointed. We are really trying to stay in the Sugarhouse area but it's tough finding a place that has all of our "requirements". We are looking at finding something that has sort of a "mother-in-law" type arrangement so that I can continue to do daycare at home. Right now, I am taking care of two other children besides my own and we are now into a routine that makes them feel like a part of the family. I would like to take on one or two more full-time children. That won't be until we find a new home though. Well, I am going to close for now. Thanks to friends and family that are out there reading our updates. You rock!

Long Summer Days................

I don't know about all of you (yeah, like anyone reads these anyway) but this heat is sweltering. Holy cow I think I sweat a bucketful everyday. The 4th of July came and went without much fanfare. Had some friends over and then went to watch the fireworks at Sugarhouse Park. I love this country and I love Americana decor.
The girls are growing like weeds. They are having a fun summer. Our little one will be one next month and she is quite the character, so full of personality. She definitely looks like her daddy while our older daughter is a spitting image of me when I was little. I guess that is how genetics work. I am signing off for now.

Rainy Days..............sigh

When it is very warm outside we wish it were cool. When it is freezing out we wish it were warm. It seems that we are never really happy with the weather. Today is one of those days for me. I wish it were warm. The kids are inside and they are driving me crazy. They need sunshine and warm weather to play in. On the other hand, we need the moisture for the crops and water supply. I wonder how it would be to live on a tropical island somewhere and have the weather be warm most of the time and be able to see greenery all year round?

Very First Blog............Ever.....................

Well, I am fast approaching the age of 40 and with technology the way it is I had better get on the "technology superhighway" and do what everyone else seems to be doing these days (blogging). Not really the same as "keeping up with the Jones' " but you get the idea. By golly if "Ross the Intern" from the tonight show can blog so can I.
So, in 19 days I will be the big 40. I don't really know what to think of that. I remember my first year at Ricks College thinking to myself that people my age (now) were "old" I mean really old. I know people my age that are grandparents. Weird.
Well, that is my blog for today. See you on the next page..........................
