Funny Sundays

So I was thinking... something I don't do a lot of... that I love the "Because She Does Blog (on Thursdays)" that my sister Shelby does and the "Awkward/Awesome Thursdays" that my sister-in-law Makana blogs, and I thought well we could think of something to do once a week also and I came up with this idea: Funny Sundays!

I figure we say a lot of funny things or have funny things happen to us during the week, and we usually end up forgetting about them oh so fast, so this will help us in that regard. But hopefully it has a two fold effect:

1) It will serve as a journal of funny things for us and

2) It will remind the rest of us that admist the stress and tribulations of this world the Lord has blessed us with something amazing: laughter!

Now I can't promise how long this will last or how often I'll actually do it, but oh well.

So here are my funny quotes/stories of the week:

McCall looking at some horses as we drive by: "Geez, what would it be like to just eat all day long?" Pausing. "Oh wait... I do that." (her being pregnant makes this quote better)

JD: "Name this movie, "I'll finish it for you now." "No Jonny, finish it for mama"

McCall: "Oh oh, um... Legends, no Living... I can't think of it.... oh Legacy" (funny if your familiar with Living Legends and Legacy)

So I went to help a less active member move out (it seems like whenever I do these moves the people are always a bunch of pack rats). Anyway, she had six of those BIG boxy tvs, heavy suckers. I found out later that five of the six didn't even work. Why are we moving them then? I found even later that she was downgrading from a two bedroom apartment to a one bedroom. I guess her room needs a t.v. in every direction, just in case they decide they want to work again.

She also had a fish tank with no lid, the water was so murky that I had to concentrate really hard to even see any sign of life, plus there were three moldy rubber duckys sitting on top of the water. "Are you sure you want this in the moving truck?" "Yeah just take out a little water so it doesn't splash out much." "Ok" The lady was moving to a different ward. I heard when that ward's Elders quorum got to it, there was fish and glass everywhere.

Utah Trip

Utah was so fun!! We just got back from our month stay in the home land. JD did his extern for Dental School out there at the Mountainlands Community Center and loved it! He was able to really pick his speed up and also learn A LOT of Spanish at the same time.

It was fun seeing everyone and reminiscing in the old days when we actually did live there for real. Here are just a few of the good memories that we made while we were out there.

First off we have lydia ready to go surfing on her chair. It was so funny, everytime we would sit down to eat, she would lie on her belly, like it was no big deal, and continue to eat the rest of her food. Don't ask me... who knows what she was trying to accomplish.

Second, I love this picture! Ok, this was taken during the dance party of my two amazing friends, Andy and Whitney's Wedding....oh Jewish wedding... may I add. She had so much fun groovin to the beat and was adorable and hilarious to watch. She takes after her mother.. what can I say. :)

We bought season passes to Seven Peaks for a steal of a deal! Included was unlimited access to Trafalga, Seven Peaks, the Trafalga in Lehi which had laser tag, a rock climbing wall, arcade games, roller coasters, race cars and much more. So we thought we would go for a little date and visit Mtn Rushmore, which was also included in our steal of a deal passes.

This occasion was pretty funny. We were walking over to the dance floor at our friends wedding and another kid ran past her and accidentally bumped her. She just started crying like the world was going to end... I was happy we finally caught this adorable face on camera.

Oh.... a precious daddy daughter moment. We had to be at the wedding early for pictures etc. and so JD was able to spend some quality time with his little sweetheart. I found them asleep in the shade and am so happy I was able to get some pictures without them waking up. I have never seen her do this before, so the fact the she was cuddled up to her daddy just sleepin in the shade outside was so cute. I love this picture as well. You can just tell how much she loves her Dad!

Oh Ella, besides the fact that you passed on the flu to miss lydia and the rest of us, it was fun to see you. We were able to go to Cafe Rio which was delicious and then to the mall afterwards, which is where these two really had some bonding time on that yellow dinasaur.

Here we are at Seven Peaks with Brandon, Shelby and Daxton! Dax was so cute and would just relax on his dad's back sporting his awesome sun glasses...while on the other hand... Lydia would go crazy as soon as she hit the water and wanted you to completely let go of her. She didn't care if the water was 2 feet deep, she knew she could do it on her own, which made it pretty difficult for a prego lady to keep a hold on her.

We had so much fun seeing everyone and we really do miss all of you. Thanks again to all those who opened their homes to us and allowed miss lydia to wake them up all through the night. We feel so blessed to have such good family and friends and hope to be seeing all of you again very soon. :)

Out with the Old, In with the New

And no I'm not talking about Lydia.... we wouldn't get rid of that old thing.
I'm talking about my new piano. If you remember from my last blog way back when I got rid of my piano that had been a project for about a year and a half. Well we really wanted a digital piano this time and I had been searching for awhile before I found this steal. I got it off Craigslist and it randomly happened to be an LDS family selling it. They bought it for 1400, my price: $200! Really excited about it!
McCall has been having watermelon cravings and I swear that's all she does all day long is eat watermelon.

And finally, only 8 more weeks til our new addition! Lydia is sporting a shirt that my best sister-in-law Makana so thoughtfully made for her.
