well, we did it.
we got evicted (landlord lost the house), found a house, moved, unpacked, put up the christmas tree, and enjoyed a wonderful christmas day
with family and loved ones.
we now live in queen creek...halfway to florence! lots of car time, but otherwise, nearly perfect.
we have plenty of room for all the kids and all our crap!
we dug through boxes that had been in the attic for 10 years!
no joke! and i would think, "heck, if i haven't needed this thing in ten years do i really need it now?" so much dust and mouse pee mixed with the memories. but we took a bunch of it to the dump, and a bunch of it to DI, and are trying to find a home for the rest. not a lot of storage in the new house,
but are managing...one box at a time!
laura and blue are here and we are loving the chance to bond with cami.
what a treat to have her in living color!
we were awakened this morning by another frantic call from krystal,
our almost daughter-in-law. these 6:oo phone calls are never good
and really need to stop!
anyway...cody and his friend were on their way to go snowboarding and hit a slick spot in the road. cody over corrected and ended up rolling his truck! the truck was totaled. daniel was fine. cody was taken by ambulance (he refused to get in a helicopter!) to scottsdale-osborn hospital to be treated for head trauma. his cat scans were clear and they stitched him back together.
we had a family prayer and grabbed the consecrated oil,
before heading to the hospital. but by the time we got there, he was getting dressed (in borrowed clothes, because they had literally cut his off of him!) and being released. he will be sore for a few days and have some funky scars to tell his grandkids about, but otherwise, he is fine.
in fact, he is in the family room playing rockband!
i am grateful for the priesthood and the power of prayer.
i am grateful for family and friends.
i am grateful that we are able to provide for our family.
i love the gospel of jesus christ.
i love the whole freakin' world (well, almost).
i hope you all had a fabulous christmas!
life is good!
