Simple Update

We've been busy these past couple weeks and finished some of our projects (although, unfortunately I don't really have any pictures to prove it).
(1)We went to the Payette Swimming Pool (nothing like Lava's Olympic Swimming Complex but don't tell Cash:)) for the last time this year.
(2)We had a yard sale and made a good chunck of money that will help us either buy a new bedroom set or some barstools and new kitchen table...hmm...which do we want more?
(3)I finally got Vanna and Cash's scrapbooks completely up to date.
(4)We canned peaches and salsa for the first time and what an experience. I'm excited to have a little more food storage filling up our shelves...and much much more of the regular busy-ness.

My projects this next week include reorganizing and updating our 72 hr. kits and pack for our little vacation. We are simply going to my family's house for a week where we'll attend one Grandpa's 75th b-day party, attend my Grandma's 90th b-day party, visit family and friends etc. We are so ready to see everyone and are looking forward to it.

Sounds like you have been busy!
Good for you for getting things done.
Don't have too much fun with your projects.

You are so motivated and on top of things. I need to follow your example. I'm due Dec 19 and no we haven't really decided on a name yet-hopefully soon! Sounds like you guys are doing great and what cute kids!!!

Good job braving the canning experience. I have yet to take that one on by myself. I've helped my mom can a few times over the years, but never by myself. I am so impressed!

If you read this while you're in the Pocatello area....our phone numbers are the same if you still have them, and we live at the same place, so if you'd like to stop by on your way back or anything, you're more than welcome to! Thursday is the only evening that doesn't work, I'm stuck at the school for parent teacher conferences until 8pm, but any other time, stop by!

I'm so impressed by the scrapbook thing! I still only have pictures of Kenzie on the computer! AHHH! Hey- if I get them onto a cd, maybe I could mail them to you, you could print them all off, put them in a scrapbook for me, and send them back. Sound like a deal? I didn't think so, but it was worth a shot!

So, we ended up deciding to do Carson's little party BEFORE we leave to Utah this weekend. His party will be on Wednesday, October 8th, at 1:00pm. I'm sorry. That probably doesn't work for you at all, does it. Let me know if you still want to do lunch though. Niccole and Sydney and I all want to get together with you.
