Catching up

Boy, how time flys and gets away from you. We really haven't been doing to much more than just life. But it has kept us busy. Sara and Tessa have a dance/gymnastics class and Amber and Clara take a gymnastics class and I have scouts, so that accounts for 3 nites a week. By the way, Amber is doing amazing in her gymnastics class!!! She can almost do a cartwheel perfectly. She loves the class and Clara just loves the new guy instructor. = >
I am gearing up for the Christmas season and most all my projects lined up and will be starting up in full steam tomorrow. As we are going to open all our gifts a week before Christmas my time is short so here I go...
I also want to include a few shots we took yesterday at Doug's Grandma Grace's 85th Birthday party. We got to go to Oakley for that. It was actually a fun day. We went and got to know some distantly, sort of related, relatives. Let me tell you how that works. It is truely one of those, my sister's neighbor's aunt's dog's vet's brother's uncle, kind of things. So we spent the day with my husband's dad's father's 3rd wife's kids' from her previous marriage. Fun huh. They are all sealed together, but still, these people didn't' even meet until they were all grown up (my father-in-law and the children that held the party.)(I guess they are short of Doug's uncles and aunts.) I don't know, you tell me. But anywho, it was still fun and we got to see Grandma Grace and meet some new friends.

thanks for sharing the pictures of Grace's party. Glad you got to go and represent our side of the family. Your girls are growing up so fast and keeping you busy. Sounds like the lifestyle all your cousins are living here. If you lived here, the girls could all go to Aunt Katie's house for gymnastics--she teaches several classes a week. I think a couple Mendy's girls went when Russ and Katie lived in Gilbert. Our grandchildren that go to her classes loves showing us all their new moves when they come over. Have a good holiday.
