I haven't been blogging much cuz I've been crazy busy this past week. And LOTS has happened.

First, we've had lots of doctor appointments (mostly teeth cleanings but almost everyone in the family had an appointment or two). Plus, Ashley's 6th birthday was on the 6th and we celebrated a little on her special day but did more for her on Saturday. I think her favorite was when Ben walked in the door with her big birthday balloons! She's such a cutie!

Ben's Mom was having major chest pains & tingling in her arm & face, so she spent 2 days in the heart hospital over the weekend. She's doing much better now and it wasn't a heart attack. Thank goodness!!

One of my sisters-in-law, Heather, had moved away with her husband and son to another state (across the country) last month. She has some things to take care of here in AZ, so she's back with her son, Trevor, and living with US for the next few months. She arrived late Saturday night. I'm excited to have her with us because we get along so great! We're having FUN! And she's cooking dinne for us tonight - yummy Minestrone Soup! She's a great cook & we always love swapping recipes!

Another sister-in-law, Susan (Heather & Ben's oldest sister), moved shortly after Heather, but also just moved back. She & her 2 little boys are staying with my in-laws. So, things have been a little crazy.

Plus, my sister, Christy, is trying to get ready to move to California for a while to go to Make-Up Artist school. She's working on getting her loans in place & then she'll be moving. I'll be SO SAD when she moves. But hopefully, she will move back when she's done!

My Primary teaching partner just received her mission call to Nauvoo, Illinois and reports to the MTC on April 9th. I'm so excited for her! She's going to be an AWESOME Missionary!! I will miss her when she leaves.

YAY!!! Spring Break has just begun!! We are going to have FUN with all the kids home. We're trying to think of some fun things for all of us to do during the break. Plus, we don't have to get up early in the morning unless we want to. Woohoo!!

HAPPY SPRING BREAK!!! What plans do you have?

Your week sounds as busy as my own... packing has sure kept me busy and all the loose ends to wrap up are taking my time. Just got my storage unit last weekend reserved and had to go sign all the papers today... (well yesterday since it's now 4:30am) T just brought me home since after the hockey game we hungout at his place to print out my loan apps and hanging out. We have so much fun together and enjoy each other's company so much.

Time just flies so quickly when we're together, I love his company. We lost our hockey game, bum bum... but it was still fun. I love the dippin' dots tee hee.

Sounds like Ashley got some nice big balloons for her special day from her Daddy...I think she enjoyed them all the more because of who they were from more than anything. To get such a nice gift from Daddy would make any girl beam with love and happy smiles!

I'm sure she feels so loved :)

I'm so sorry to hear about Nancy, I sure hope she is doing much better.

Sounds like you are having fun with Heather and Trevor...that's good, I'm glad. Having family over for company is fun and esp since she's staying awhile that's good you all get along so good ;)

I'm sooooo excited to go to Cali... it depends on a lot of things whether I'll even come back or not. I plan to come back, but there's always that chance I may not. I'll surely miss family, but excited to achieve my dreams too. I'll always be in touch! And I'm no longer away than a phone call :)

How exciting for your teaching partner to go to Nauvoo! I hope she loves it! A mission is the most wonderful experience anyone can go through and a great privilege. I'm sure she'll love the experience whether it turns out good or bad, there's always something to be learned from it.

Oh yah, I didn't even realize it's spring break! Gosh, when not having children -it just sneaks right up on me ;)

I hope you'll let me kidnap cute little bugger Anson soon...I sure would love to take him to the zoo with T.

It's super late and I'm sleepy - talk to you soon luvie,
Christy ;)

We're taking it easy this week - just the park and playing outside, maybe a movie. Easy & Cheap is my motto.
