Hello, Hello, Hello!

I know I have gone for quite some time but I am not sure if I am getting burned out on blogging or if I am just getting a little to busy! I was reprimanded by my sister yesterday who demanded an update so here is the past month and a half in reader's digest version. Christmas was great! It was great to be here and just lazy mazy all weekend! We did not get much snow which I know was opposite for the rest of the country at that time. Come to think of it we have not had much snow at all and have been enjoying 50-60 and sometimes even 70 degree weather this winter. Sorry to all you who are freezing and snowed in. :-) After Christmas we enjoyed a great evening with some friends that took us on the jet airplane that he flies for work. Henry loves, loves, loves airplanes and our friend took us to the air port to let Henry get on his jet and look at all the controls and even stand on the wings. Thank you Issac and Heather!!!! We then went to zoo lights with them and enjoyed zoo night life all decked out in christmas lights. Henry started up play days with his "favorite and best friend", as Henry refers to, Thomas. Once a week Henry goes to Thomas' house and once a week Thomas comes to ours. Henry loves this and needs a good friend close to his age. I also got a new calling......... drum roll please........ I am the new primary president. I think my eyes are still out of their sockets! I started on a quilt for our bed, not the best time to take on this task but it is almost done. I caned 12 quart sized jars of apple sauce. As my good friend pointed out, I am not the best at time management. But in my defense apples were on sale for 39 cents a lb. I could not pass that up!!! Henry and Jetta have been pushing my buttons at all costs! I have endured Sharpie on everything, poo wiped on everything, soap covering the bathroom, things breaking, and typical winter sickness and blues. However since this calling I am a much more patient person. Isn't it awesome how the Lord blesses you when you are in his service!!! I have been asked to give a 45 min. presentation on Historical Kirtland (where I served my mission) to a church history group in our stake. A little nervous, okay, a lot nervous. The group is filled with the stake patriarch, temple workers, and bishops. Hummmmm! I wish I would have known who made up the group before I accepted! I also called to jury duty. Could my life get any more busy? I am sure it could and by the next time I post who knows, something huge could come up. But for now that is the reader digest version as to why I have not posted. Enjoy the photos and videos. See you next month. :-) Ha Ha Ha I will try to be better.

GoodNESS, woman! Jury duty, too, why not?! Someday, I want to be awesome like you and can apple sauce (can anything, really). Nathan and Jetta should do a duet of "I Am a Child of God." Nathan can fill in the last word of each phrase in the chorus.

its about time!!!!!!!!!!!! hooray, i loved all the pictures, but my absolute fav is the one of jetta singing i am a child of god - that so so so reminds me of when we were little... and i think henry wanted to sing - he started to - and then one word into it changed his mind... that little bugger, i bet he is awesome at that song (it's his fav right?).

thanks for the update!
