My dear good friends,
How I love you. I had THREE comments about my MIA status in the blogging universe. I was explaining to Shannon that my computer is full and I need to download all of the pictures from the summer, etc. and she mentioned that I don't need pictures to blog...lightbulb!!! HELLO!!! Why didnt' I think of that?!
SO, I appreciate your harassment to blog. It makes me feel noticed and missed. SO, I am downloading pics right now (I just erased all of my music, we will see how that GOES!). BUT, more importantly, I AM WRITING. If feels good to get the feel of speed back into these fingers. Sure, the backspace is hit a least once a word, but hey, I'm an old dog.
SO, we had a FUN summer. My plan was to keep us busy and to partake of all of summers golden goodness. Mission accomplished! Brent was gone a LOT of the summer, traveling to Europe and Africa. You can check out his blog, and amazing opportunites on his blog (there is a link on mine). We went to Heber, Park City, and everywhere local. We fed baby cows, swam in springs, had a great photo shoot, rode the Alpine Slide for the Kids first time, watched clouds, had friends from Alaska, waited for Breaking Dawn, pulled off yet another girls camp, went camping--actually had BRENT camp with us--that is a FIRST!!!, went fishing, ran through a nice green, lush lawn for the first time ever since living here, ate 2 gross of Otter pops, went barefoot and had the MOST spectacular Cul-de-SAC of FIRE EVER!!! My Black Mambas were HUGE, BOOMING explosions of JOY! It was my Christmas.
Now, we are back in school, and I am missing the noise and the kids. I'm so content to be the evil step mother playing Cinderella with Presley. Now, she saw Hairspray and always wants to be TRACY. BUT, i LOVE just being in the moment with her--my regret is that I learned it seven and eight years too late for my others.
SO, the Show is BACK on the road!!! More excitement to COME! I love you guys!

I have ONE picture of devotion for you. Here is our family the morning of the day that BREAKING DAWN is to come out. Our dear alaskan friends stayed out all night, I came home to sleep and then joined them after my run in the morning. THen these amazing people came to be with us in line and join the HYSTERIA!!! The title of this picture is: NOW THAT"S LOVE.
(TOo bad the book sucked so bad. YES, I give it 1 star. But that is another post!)

Why did the book suck? Brittany said that after Bella died Edward and Jacob moved to Brokeback mountain, WY?

Yay! You're back in the world of blogging! I've been checking your site ever since school started. I was so excited to see your latest post! Glad you had an awesome summer. You inspire me to enjoy my children more than I do.

I am jealous of your mambas. Once i find some starbursts here I'm roasting them by the curb. I know what you mean about loving those times with your kids. I love it when Bri likes to play and then come and hug or kiss me (that's her knew thing-the kisses). I made her a house out of the cardboard box the washing machine is in and she loves it and we have such fun times together. Sometimes when she is grumpy I have to remember those times.
