Updating at last!
Okay, I know it's been forever since I've last blogged. SO, I've tried to catch up. Since it has been so long, I've had to work backwards in catching up. The next few blogs has everything you missed out on. Hopefully, I won't bore you all to death as I play catch up. Now that girls camp is over, I will do better. (I hope!) Anyway, here it goes for all who care. March was a great month. Brennan turned 12 on March 2nd and received the Aaronic priesthood. That didn't freak me out too much. What freaked me out is that he is now doing combined activities with girls at church. Weird! Brennan did a great job passing the sacrament for the first time. Many people came up and told me that he did a good job. When I said, "Yeah, he did, didn't he?" They all responded, "We weren't looking at him, we were looking at the big smile on his proud Mama's face!" We are proud of Brennan for being worthy of holding the priesthood and taking his responsibilities seriously. Brennan also had a sleep over with his friends for his birthday party. I have never smelled such stinkiness coming from my game room! Little boys make such great smells! They had a good time. I must say though, it took a while for that room to recover! Also in March, the kids had spring break. Jeff was working his crazy hours of 14 hour days 7 days a week for two months during that time. (Yes, it's hard work making your gas!) I wanted to go somewhere. SO, I packed up the kids and went to Nashville with them. We learned from our mistake last time with Laura to not get a two star hotel. We stayed in a nice safe one instead. We had a great time dinking around at the mall, seeing a movie, spending time at Opryland hotel and eating at Rainforest Cafe. It was nice to just get away and be with the kids. We also had a good Easter. Jeff was still working, which was a bummer. But, we had a nice visit with Holly and Ben (Jeff's sister & hubby) who visited from Dallas right before then. Also in March, we got snow! That was strange. We usually get snow once a year, but it's usually in January. We thought we were going to miss it this year. We got a nice surprise. We love snow once a year. The kids get out of school even though it's just a few inches at most, we get to play in it and not have the mess! It's great! The picture below is after the snow melted a bit, but you get the picture. Anyway, March was great! Continue reading below if you want the rest of the updates!
