Yesterday was an odd day. We were on the way to Syracuse to have the Wilson Family Birthday Bash when Dallas' Grandma Kaiserman called to tell us that his Great Uncle David passed away. David had a horrible disease that over time caused him to lose all control of his muscles. He could speak, but that was hard to understand. He wanted so badly to go to sleep and not wake-up, and he was lucky enough to get that wish. It is a blessing to know that he is in a much better place, and hopefully (if we know David) he is dancing.
The birthday party was fun. The best part was when Lauren tried on my boots and was determined to walk all over the house. She was hysterical! I can't wait to have a girl one day and watch her play dress up.
When we were wrapping up the festivities my brother Sam got a text message from KSL telling him that President Hinckley passed away. We had to turn on the T.V. and wait for news before we could really believe it. I know Pres. Hinckley was 97, but for some reason I just felt that he was invincible and would live forever. I am so grateful for his charismatic leadership. I really feel that he helped people to realize that just because you are a Prophet of God, doesn't mean you can't have a sense of humor. I will never forget the awed respect I felt when he walked into the conference center and everyone stopped. He truly was a Prophet.
We will miss both David and President Hinckley, but we are greatful for our knowledge of the next life that brings us such peace in times like these.
We have very carefully been growing a column (when stalactite meets stalagmite) on the corner of our porch this January. You wouldn't believe how many people we had to keep from knocking it down! For FHE we decided that it was bust it up time. We had to document it of course! Will actually started crying when it broke.
Yesterday Will, Grandma Kaiserman and I went to Evanston, Wy to see Dallas' sister Abby play basketball. Kristie met us there for a fun game. The girls won (21-16), and Abby had some great rebounds and an awesome steal at the end. She is on the "A" team and even started! It was so fun to watch her. We are so proud of her. Will was thrilled to see the ball, and couldn't take his eyes off the game. He just sat on my lap and clapped. The buzzer and the cheers frightened him a little, but by the last half he was getting used to the noise.
When the game ended we decided to go out to dinner at Hunan Garden. I fed Will a bottle (he didn't have much of an appetite yesterday), and then we walked into the restaraunt. When I got by our booth will threw up ALL OVER! I was covered, and so was the floor. The people in the booth next to us just stared. We cleaned up and ate dinner as quickly as we could. By the time we got back to Heber Will was quite fussy. I took his temperature and he had a temp of 104! Thanks to my sister Cami I didn't rush him to the doctor. (Patience is a virtue). It seems like Will is never going to get better. At least he is a little happier today!
I can finally continue on with my life because I was able to finish the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. THEY WERE FABULOUS! Dallas kept saying that I was "abandoning my family" because I couldn't take my nose out of those books. I feel like I have been let into this whole new world- almost like Harry Potter, but not quite as "magical". I guess that is right. Anyway, I guess what I'm saying is, if you are looking for something interesting to read- GO GET IT! I have started them all over again, and I have never done that with a book before. Love, love, love it. Kudos to Stephenie Meyer- I can't wait for the next one this fall.
I'm still figuring this blog thing out. Hopefully in the next little bit I will be able to class up my style and get off that dirty rotten "myspace". I just wanted you all to know that I am here. I could use some tips if you have them!
