Jordan LOVES dinosaurs & Buzz Lightyear & football! Ashley sent me this cute picture of him in his costume! They are coming to visit in January.... YAY!!! And, in case you didn't already know, Joey & Ashley are expecting a new baby in June... YAY again!!! Joey is at a month long training (getting ready for another deployment) and Ashley is doing awesome in Scentsy & working as a Pharmacy Tech.
Not much new around here... the Dixie 6 started last weekend... I now have proof positive that Hurricane Utah was appropriately named, the wind last weekend almost blew our camper over (and we weren't even driving down the road!) Crazy!
Wace didn't hurt his injured knee while riding this weekend, he did however hurt his good knee!!! No big deal... the bull just kicked him on the way down and SLAMMED him to the ground, yet he LOVES it! Go figure! He did make the 8 on both bulls, but didn't get good bulls, he split 4/5th one day and took 8th on one that should of been a re-ride... like Grandpa Bud says, if you're going to do a judged event, you better be able to take it! Wace also got a new puppy Rugar, which he loves & snuggles & talks baby talk to.... 'macho macho man....' hahahaha!
Bailey is waiting around for baseball season, he told me that he wants to be a go-cart racer now! What the??? He wanted to go get a "wind suit" today, you know the slickery pants & jacket... he put it on when we got home & told me now he needs a pinky ring like the Mafia. Apparently "wind suits" are the apparel of choice for the Mafia, he told me to call him Don Bud (instead of Bailey Bud) "because you know Mom, a Don is important in the Mafia" (shoot me now!)
Lec is working his guts out... he keeps getting in trouble with the safety guys (he is their worst nightmare!) I guess you aren't suppose to climb on the edge of the man basket when it is over extended & lean over until it is only on 2 wheels, "someone could get hurt"! I'm surrounded by crazy people... Prozac anyone?
Better go... guts!

Ya, so it was Whitney's birthday Friday... Happy 22 Whit! (I thought one of the cake pics from the wedding was good here...) We all went to Olive Garden for lunch on Saturday (mmm Olive Garden). Except for Joey, Ashley & Jordie bug... (we miss them a lot)!!!
I got to talk to Joey on the phone today... we're still hoping they get to come visit soon! We haven't seen them since March!!! At least me & Grandpa got to see them in March, everyone else hasn't seen them since last December!!!! We've been teasing Bailey that Jordan will be able to tackle him! That would be funny!
Bailey's team lost their football game last week, but Bailey made a SA-WEET tackle! He is home from school barfing today... hopefully he will be better by his game on Wednesday!!!
Wace blew out his knee again the other day, we finally got him an appointment with "Dr. Pepper", he is some great ortho doctor that works on all the bull riders... hopefully it will be an easy fix!!! But in the mean time, you can just call him Igore, that's what Billy's Mom calls him!
Grandpa Giff is home from the hospital... he hates that place! We're glad he's home, but we have to keep an eye on him when he watches football... he likes the cheerleaders! LOL!
We got the family room all painted over the weekend, carpet comes tomorrow! Yay!
Better go... laundry to do!!! Guts!

Football Thursday... Bailey's team lost last week (ugly) but they are going to do better this week for sure! He did great in the Primary program except for the part where he wouldn't sing the songs!!! I think he might of hummed or something!
So I lied about where Jeremy works... he is at Orem Community, "I have my own hospital now" he told me, good job Jer-bear!
Anyway, we are all doing great, watching the leaves change colors and happy to stay home this weekend!

Lec - my best friend, the love of my life, the one who always has my back... even if it means recreating the HOLLYWOOD sign (minor edit to MOLLYWOOD) for girls camp! Working hard as always... starting his new company Heritage Welding, since his other one - Steel Erectors retired.
Brandie Marie - my "mean" daughter LOL! Married to an awesome husband, Jason - the saver of lives and raising Sugar (Chelsie), Spice (Sydnie) and Everything Nice (Jasie) 3 WAY cute girls... check out her blog if you don't believe me... the link is right over there.......
GI Joe - my Army boy... I could of used an Army to raise him, but just like Bishop Russon promised, he grew up to be a good & productive member of society, and he has been out there saving America from the dumb @$$ terrorists and he will be again in the spring. Married to the beautiful Texas girl Ashley (doing awesome in Scentsy!!!), the one who keeps him in line and takes care of Jordie-bug... the VERY active future linebacker "Mom, his foot is the size of a 4 year olds"!!!
Whitter K - What can I say? She speaks for herself... I'm sure you've heard her... and I'm sure you think she gets her big voice from me... but no, it came from her Dad... still coaching gymnastics & cheer and newlywed to Jer-bear the love of her life who is working at the hospital in Provo and still alpha dog to Baby & Jr.
Shel-bert - The one who can't stand to leave the baby to go on a date... doing a great job as Lecsie's mom, and trying to manage Mike - the happy one, who is working iron and liking it, except when he has to be 'fire watch'. And Lecsie Nicole, named after her Grandpa Lec (see) SO cute and she LOVES her Grammie!
Wace - what can I say... you have to be a little bit crazy to ride bulls. He went to the HS Nationals this year... maybe you saw his picture in the paper... after all the great rides in the last year, they put the one where he is upside down and backwards with the caption "Wace get's bucked off at the State finals".... nice.... what can you say about 'de press'??? He bought himself a truck... you'll know it's him because he put a GROSS girly sticker in the back window! TEENAGERS!
Bailey Bud - hmmm what to say? Still the smartest of all of us, top 10% in the nation in Social Studies and trying to decide if he wants to go to a charter school for Jr High. Loving football (yay 3 fumble recoveries in his last game) and watching the NFL & the History channels with some Disney channel mixed in. He tried to beat me in chess (maybe next time)... but he did sink my battleship!
Well, I guess you know I have 6 kids by now... and 5 grandbabies! How lucky can one old gal be?
