It was bound to happen...

We decided to run the satellite cable through to the kitchen tv while it wasn't screamin hot. The repair guy had left it up there for us about two years ago and since the cable was not working any more at all it was time. I heard lots of noise in the attic as Mendis crawled around up there. I was afraid of what might be going on up there and sure enough:

Darn it I didn't get there fast enough with the camera to get his leg going through the hole. Luckily he didn't hurt himself and he didn't even swear. He got it all patched up we are just waiting to paint it sometime when we get the paint matched. Like he needs another project right.

Absent for Easter

Things have a strange way of working out or not sometimes. We wanted to attend Laura's mission report but wouldn't you know it was on Easter Sunday. So we went anyway. Friday night Christina came down with two cars of friends and they stayed at our house too. So we greeted them Friday and made them a big breakfast Saturday then Mendis took them all shooting. It was good to hang out with them a bit before we had to get going. Then Hayden came down for Easter and while he was here he saw Ashley's house and spent some time playing with his nephews. Wow looks like they had a blast I'd say!






Ashley had Easter dinner at her house with Hayden and Charlie and Alisha without us :( but oh well. Next year we will be there. In fact I arranged our cruise so we would actually get home the day before Easter just to make sure we didn't miss it again.

Graduation

 
 Time flies! Jeff and Rachel graduated from BYU-Idaho this spring on Friday, April 11, 2014. We are so proud of them. Lots of hard work and tedious assignments paid off in the end. We were able to make the trip up to Rexburg for the occasion. Christina was able to go too so off we went.  
It was the best of weekends.
Aren't they cute
They were lucky enough to have both families there and both of Jeff's Grandparents.

We had a wonderful dinner together at the I-Center. They did a beautiful job but unfortunately I was starting to come down with the flu bug so it was way more than I could eat darn it. 
 After the dinner we headed into the I-Center for the Graduation. 
 

Love those pictures of the trek over. The auditorium was so packed we never could see them for certain wouldn't you know. I filmed some random graduates hoping it was them but nope.
Right after the main graduation we all gathered in the gym before we had to hustle over for the College Convocation. It was a great time to visit with friends.

Turns out either our camera we spent a small fortune on takes crappy pictures or we don't know how to use it correctly. Hmmnnn. So most of those ones didn't turn out great. Luckily I took some on my little camera to save the day!!

What a great day! We just love those two! We are so proud of them and all they have accomplished together. They will be headed off to Washington DC this summer so Jeff can go to Law School at George Washington University this fall. Rachel will be taking some well deserved time off before Grad school.
Life is Good isn't it.

THE Drawer

We're keeping the tradition alive. Everyone one of my grandsons has had a chance to play in the drawer. In fact I believe Hayden was the first when he was one. It's about the only drawer that is safe for them to play in so I let them go to it...

Dane having a good time until he found the other more fun cupboards.

Welcome Comeau Family


So while I was scrapbooking this year Ashley's family moved in with us! Let me explain...


The house from hell. Well I didn't think so but pretty sure that's how Ashley & Benjy saw it. Their house was supposed to be finished the middle of March so they set everything up to move the end of March. Well of course things didn't work out that way. So they were homeless while they waited for paperwork to clear. They were only in our house briefly so it was no big deal. The stress for them to get everything final and done was pretty bad though. They were able to work it all out and everything got the official okie dokie in June. A very stressful time for them. Their house is beautiful though and worth the craziness.
Making carpet angels in their new home!

Mission Accomplished!!

Scrapbook Weekend 2014

I have to mention my scrapbook retreat again this year. I love this tradition!! Patty, Jolynn and I have been doing this for years and we look so forward to it. This year we went up to Patty's cabin March 27-30. We tore out of here at noon so we could get up there and get to work.

 Husbands and family and friends find it hard to believe that we actually get some scrapbooking done. But we really do. We stay up super late every night and get as much scrapping in as we can. We barely stop to go to Milt's etc. Well food is pretty important too I guess. We have this down to an art now because we bring up so much food we barely need to leave, except for Milt's (yet another tradition).


This year I brought up some Devonshire clotted cream and we had scones and herbal tea. It was so fun. We also started a new tradition. We took one day and we didn't get dressed, do our hair or anything.
 We just played (scrapped) all day and got so much done. It was so fun. We even ran down to Joann one day in slippers to get some supplies. It was a great weekend and we are already looking forward to next year!!
