Witches Night Out

Last year Desi wanted to check out Witches night out down at Gardner Village. We had so much fun that we had to do it again. It just might be one of our new traditions.
Meagan joined us this year. We had fun walking around and watching all the witches. I was surprised at how many did not dress up this year. I think it should be a requirement if you go.

We ended up leaving early enough to hit Tie Pan and then we ran over to IHop for some (get this) Hot Chocolate and Ice Cream. Okay We did have some fries too. Oh yuk, my stomach still hurts. Not sure if it was the food or the laughing.
On the way home we stopped at the gas station to get gas. Meagan ran in to use the restroom. As she was walking out of the store you should have seen the faces of the people walking out behind her. I don't think I have laughed so hard for a very long time.

A well deserved night out with my girls :) Next year we will take anyone else that would like to join in on our new tradition but you have to dress up.

Thanks Ladies!

As the Stomach Turns

Okay - so yesterday as we were sitting waiting for court to begin, we all decided that we should have our own reality show. We just might get rich. No Really!

It really was Desi's idea. Desi has such a good way of breaking the tension. Thanks Desi for helping us laugh at a time I wanted to cry and you weren't even there. Go figure

As you may know....we can't talk about the case so I will just tell you that it will be continued until November 16th. Nothing has changed. My love just grows for DCFS and The Other grandma. JK

I just hope Heavenly Father will forgive me for all the mean thoughts I have had.

If anyone has a good name for our reality show - please share :)

Thank goodness for photos

I am not sure that I would even remember what we have done the past little bit if it wasn't for pictures. When I downloaded my camera, there were so many cute pictures to share but I won't bore you. Only with a few.
Miss Bailee turned 1

AFTER She is so cute!

We had our Hello week at Cyprus where we did the "Lawn Chair Drill Team" It can be viewed on You Tube. We Rock!
Our boys are so cute, don't you think?
My favorite time of year is General Conference and going with the family to the cabin. Right when we got there the moose was standing right by Mel's cabin. Da Moose da moose...... ;)

And here it is almost Halloween. Things are so busy in everyone's lives right now that we decided to do our traditional Dinner in a Pumpkin.
Then we carved pumpkins.
So since I'm now a pirate, I really liked this one.
But they were all so cute and we had such a fun night.
I just love being with my family. They are the best!

Quick Up-date

Most of you already know that we are seeking custody of our two grandsons-Isaiha & Ron. We have spent all summer and now fall going to court and trying to do all that DCFS has asked us to do.
Last night we spend a few hours with DCFS going over safety and care for these boys if we get them. She was very nice. Actually, she is the first one to even listen to us. I guess there are a few that work for DCFS that really cares. (Maybe one) Of course our home does not meet the standards that are required but she seemed to be very positive and thought that the boys would be okay in our home. Before they would let them come we would have to do some quick fixing up.
I had to laugh that the bed room had to be so big for the boys. I thought about Jed's father who had 12 siblings in their one bedroom home. Truly-I wonder how any of us (okay, not me cause I had it way good) every lived.
I have been filled with many emotions this past 6 months wondering how in the world the 'STATE' can take away your grand kids. There are day's when I wonder if America is still free. I know many people go through tougher trials than what we are facing right now but this trial for me is an eternal trial, this is family. I use to say if it's not eternal it doesn't matter. Boy does Satan hear every word.
I have come to the conclusion that I have to turn it over to my Heavenly Father. I know that whatever happens will happen for a reason and in the best interest of those two boys. I guess sometimes that may mean that I may have to let them go. That doesn't mean that I have to quit loving those two boys.
We go back to court next Thursday the 21st. Please keep my Timmy and those two boys in your prayers. I know that prayer works and I do know that my Heavenly Father if fully aware of what we are going through at this time. Timmy is a good man! I will stand by his side though thick or thin cause that is what family does.
I am so grateful to my parents, brother & sisters who have taught me by example how important family is.
