Boys Will be Boys? (I think)

Okay so a lot has been going on this week. On Monday Kelly and Scott decided they were going to go play and they spent the day 4-wheeling. So being the nice wife I stayed home with all the kids (my 3 and Scotts 2). Well when the spend the day with 5 kids things get chaotic and crazy. So we ended up with 2 of the boys pretending to be girls (They thought it was pretty funny). We had a pretty great day even with the extra cheerleader and ballerina.

Then on Tuesday night we went to Leatherby's Ice Cream to say good-bye to my brother James who is left this week for the Army basic training. And to all of our surprise James and his wife Bethany announced they are expecting their first baby - yeah! James will be gone for 9 weeks for basic training and then will go to Office Candidacy School which will be another 12 weeks. So we will miss him but we wish him the best of luck!

Ella, the scissors and the hair!

Okay so I guess it is a right of passage for anyone with young children but this is my first child hair cutting adventure. So Ella was playing with her friend Sophie yesterday when they decided it would be a good idea to play hair stylist, Sophie being the stylist and Ella being the client. Needless to say Ella is now missing a good chunk of beautiful little girl hair. The things kids will do!

Labor Day 2008

So the Tippets side of the family decided to rent a house in Midway over the Labor Day Holiday and spend some time together.
James is leaving for bootcamp on September 23rd and we thought it would be a great family outing before he's gone for a very long time. We were able to spend some time at Swiss Days and go to the Swiss Days Parade. We also we over to the sheep herding competition and watched the sheep dogs compete, they also had some dogs that were trained at some pretty great tricks. On Saturday we went into Park City and did the Alpine Slide and Abby did the Jump thingy (I can't remember what it's called). The kids loved it and we really had a great time together.

Good Bye Nana

Some of you already know that my Mom Louise Lundell passed away last Wednesday September 3rd. She has been fighting a long battle with Alzheimer's and Breast Cancer. Last August she was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer that had metastasized to her bones and she was told it was terminal. She fought a good fight but her body final lost and she took her last breaths surrounded by her three children. Jori, James, and I are so grateful for the love and support that has been given to our family through this difficult time and hope that our mother will live on in the memories of her family and friends. We will miss our Nana!

New Bloggers!

Okay so I am going to try and get into this blogging thing since everyone else in the world is doing it. I hope I can get organized enough to do this on a weekly basis (but probably more realistically a monthly basis. ) But maybe it will actually force me to download my pictures from my camera! We have so many great family and friends that we would like to try an keep them updated on what is going on in our life. Happy Blogging!
