Gazebo fun

We had a Bridal shower for someone in Penni's ward. This will be the second official party at Pen's house! The fun part was dressing up the Gazebo and raking all around and pulling the rest of the weeds. The party started we even got balloons lime green and black (her colors) and tied them to the gate and the tables and Gazebo. Penni wanted them to go round the back and not through the house. The bride and her mother came in the house with Shaela so that didnt work. We put the food out watermellon, cantelope, cookies, brownies, veggie tray, rolls with chicken salad, strawberry's, and strawberry lemonaid. oh and chips. there is no party with out chips! We expected ooooh's and awhs over her yard and gazebo but I didnt hear any. They all sat on the patio and I with my Grand kids sat in the gazebo. So no one made a move to the gazebo so I finally made a move out to join the others. It was a great shower made with our best efforts. Even the fresh flowers were so spectacular most cut from Pen's yard. The dissapointing part is not a lot of ward members came. We all had a great time and there is so much food left over. Anyone wanting a chicken sandwich or cookies or anything else the Gazebo is empty! Pen and I had a great time dressing up the Gazebo and I cant think of anywhere I would rather be! The satisfaction of fulfilling a dream is the best and we can hug that to us. Next time I will stand in front of the GAZEBO and say isnt this Lovely and if they dont answer I will club them on the head and say SPEEK UP I Cant HEAR YOU!!! Bill said did you tell them I built it? I laughed and said no did you want me to carve your name over the door way? Bill said yes thats a great Idea. He was just joking I think!

Fun in Vegas

Hey, Bill and I went to Jim and Em's for the weekend. The time went really fast!! Jim is working long hours doing Real Estate and he is getting a team together making reservations for corperation retreats and stuff for hotels stays. I'm not exactly sure on the details but, he is working hard. Em is tudering math and setting her own schdule. They have their hands full with three children 4 and under. We were talking about sending Ellie to Grandmas all by herself. Jim said we can put you in an Airplane and then you can jump out over Grandmas house!! Do you know that Grandpa used to do that. Ellie took that in and look at all our faces and said " I think I would like to do something a little less dangerous!! What a hoot. The kids are so smrt!! We have Nathaniel's baptism this weekend and Jim and Em are blessing the baby too. Jim said as much as I would like you to come for that I would rather have you come for more time.

Grandma sleep over
Kelly and Megan have been in town. The cousins love to be together. Lyenna hasnt felt to well after the baby sooo. I said why not keep all the kids over night. They thought it was so fun. I was getting a little cross eyed about 10:30 saturday night when they couldnt deside where they wanted to sleep. Where ever Tayler was they wanted to be Where ever Conner Was they wanted to be sooo Just like sleeping beauty they tried the spare room across from us. They tried the living room, then they tried the basement. The final choice and the one that was just right was the family room. Carson wanted to sleep with Tayler curled up in a ball at the end of the couch. Tayler couldnt go to sleep and Tanner was scared so Tanner moved upstairs with Trey and Tayler moved to the small couch and laid with her head laying off the end and her feet over the back. The little ones did great sleeping but, the older ones didnt fare as well. Tanner woke up in the morning and said Trey, Trey are you awake. Then he went down stairs and said Tayler , Tayler are you awake. Tayler said she tried to pretend she was asleep, but gave up. I could hear them and grabbed my camera and caught them all together in the living room on the love seat together. They wanted us to wake up without really waking us up. They made me laugh! The bath in the jetted tub Saturday night was a riot!! They thought that was soooo cool. It takes alot of water to fill up and my mistake I let the boys go first. The water was the color of chocolate milk. when the girls got in.. I thought we could at least get the first layer of dirt off. Carson and Connor know how to swim so Carson was going head first off the side slidding into the merky water. He was happy as punch I got a picture of it but, Carson was to fast and I got Conner standing with his wing wang all together. I had to erase it so I wouldnt be arrested when I develope the film. Breakfast was fun I made Waffels and Orange juice and they ate pretty good. My table and floor were a little sticky as well as their hands and the back of the chairs but, it was goood. Church isnt until 1pm so I thought it would be fun to dress up in grandma and grandpa's church cloths. The kids thought it was funny. I had to use Bill Shorts and tucked in a white shirt and tied the belt in a knot. We had to fold the shorts in half and they still went to their shoes. the girls liked my sparkley shirts so we had a blast giggling together. Kelly and Megan walked in and we said suprise we are all ready for Church. I have Pic's I will post them later. Kyson took his off, or they fell off, he handed it to me and said they are to big. We missed the rest of the kids Ellie, Mylee, Nathaniel, Johnathan, and Brigham. Im not sure where we would have put everyone but, we would have made room. Penni is the one that started the Grandma day. I thought it would be a great tradition. I'm sharing my grandkids with Pen because most of hers are so far away.

I'm back I think

Hey, fellow bloggers Aimee hooked me up so I can work my blog! Thanks Aimee I love what you did.
We are at Penni's putting up the Gazebo!! It is really beautiful. It is in the shade so we wont melt.
Penni and I have been working really hard cleaning and pulling weeds for Mom and Diane Vincent. I am so thankful , to have the work. Pen and I are crazy but, love to do the hard work.
Kelly is coming in today and will be on vacation for a week. We want to finish so we can spend time with them. Kelly Loves what he is doing he is on the SWAT team. He gets to give announcements in Spanish and English. Jaar and Angie bought a house really close to me and it is beautiful. Jaar just got a new job that pays a whole lot more. I am so happy for them. Emily and Lyenna just had their babies and they are so adorable. Lyenna had hers while Bill and I were in Mazatlan. I so wanted to be there for Lyenna but, I am thankful everything went well. Bill and I had fun with Margo and Bill's dad on the cruise to Mexico. Bill Sr. is very dependant on someone taking him where he needed to be. He couldnt even go to breakfast on his own. When we slep in until 8am and knocked on the door. He said already jeez isnt it almost lunch time? I just kept my mouth shut. We would walk down the corridor ahead of him because he was always breaking wind.. I pretended I didnt know who he was. He cant hear so he thinks no one can hear the ripppppp in his pants. Mexico was very hot and humid. We went on a jeep ride in a open Jeep. There were 7 jeep and we had the only open one Margo and I sat in the back. It started to rain a little bit and the Guide stopped and asked us if we wanted the top up. WE said no it felt really good. Then the rain really came down it was coming down so hard it went into our mouths and eyes. Margo and I tried to pull the top up from behind us it was no use. We just started to laugh and laugh we looked like a couple of drowned rats. It was so humid we never dried out. The people behind us took video. I think we had the most fun because of it. Then we took a tour of a tequilla factory. I was sooo tempted to try a taste. but we didnt.... Well Bill needs my help so talk to ya later Pat
