The next day I went to visit a wards young women's.
Guess what our lesson was on?
Yup...Keeping the Sabbath day holy.
I will have to say "Thanks Tami, I really needed that lesson more than you know".
So what does this have to do with Tim's birthday?
Well, I had to improvise.
We had most of our kids home for dinner and had a very nice dinner and game of "Farkle". Even though I lost, it was fun. After everyone went home and we were back in our 'quiet' home, Jed and I reflected on what a great husband Desi had. She could not have found a better father for those 3 kids that I love so much and Husband for my precious daughter. We are so grateful to have him as a part of our family. Thank you Tim for being that man.

I have been putting this off now for a year. Yes, a year! talk about procrastination - that's my middle name. Of course along with Mud and few other names :). It is time to go in and clean, paint, fix and rent (or sell).
I thought I would share my reasoning behind not really wanting to go out to Tooele. There is so much work that needs to be done besides the fact that when you walk in.....I get a stomach ache. I figured out the stomach ache today as I was looking at the pink walls in the kitchen "It's the color of pepto bismol". Oh yea, just check it out for your self.
As I was wiping down the cupboards in the kitchen I realized that it not only has pepto on the walls but blue cupboards with black trim. Okay, I have been around for about 50 years now...give or take a year or two. I do not ever remember these colors being in fashion. Do any of you?
When going into the front room you may see a wall that looks black. Yes black wall paper "floral black". Try not to look to close at the green floral couch next to it. You may just need some of that pepto I was talking about.
Let's just keep going to the bedroom. Lavender? Okay, I can't go on.....If you come into my home, it's pretty boring. I like boring. White, off white is good. Maybe even an accent wall. (as in 1).
Okay now that you have all had a good laugh or an upset stomach....anyone want to come help paint:D

Love anything Free...oh yea. Especially when I can share it with my grand kids. So This Is The Place had a free day. I think everyone in Utah knew about it. It was very crowded but we still had fun.
When we first got there we were just in time to feed the lambs. The girls really enjoyed that.

Does anyone else feel like I do.....I can't wait until camp is over and then when it is over, I wish I was back up at camp?
We had an amazing camp. This year it was just a kick back and enjoy camp for me. Maybe not for the ward camp directors but for the stake, it was great.
We had some great leaders up at camp along with some great youth.....
I love singing the camp songs. This year we had a music director Heather Cash who did a great job keeping us singing at the beginning of every event.
Well back to what I said at the beginning. . . I wish I was up at camp again. I had so much fun and I love being with the youth. They have the sweetest spirit about them. I love singing and staying up late (only for you Brittney) playing farkle. I love being in nature. I think the best part of camp was having my Desi with me and watching how well she did our camp. The Missionaries asked me "doesn't that just make you proud of her"? Yes! I was so proud of her and the way she made this camp happen. She is an amazing leader and so very dedicated. I didn't worry about a thing because I knew she had it all under control.
