Lakeshore Homecoming Fun!

Well all the hard work of many has paid off. Thanks to my mom and her ambition, she organized and delegated to get our float for homecoming done. She also decided on the title and theme... Hat's Off to Tea Time.
Jason made sure to get the float put together, and sturdy for the kiddos to sit on. two wagons with a sheet of ply wood screwed to them. My mom, Sister, and Bobby Decorated the float, and made the little flowers outside in the dark with crape paper and pipe cleaners, and stapled everything down. They also got the picnic basket (hey boo boo.. how about that pic a nic basket). Brandee and I did some leg work searching just about everywhere we could think of, including DI (thanks mom for that idea, i would have never thought, even if it did turn up dry I'm glad i looked). And Finally on a WHIM, and by Whim i mean, I just felt like looking in tai pan cause i love that store, and found These Adorable Babies......

I got two just in case, so they are stacked.

Brandee and I went back up with our 4 kiddos, Wow was that a TREAT! and got two for her girls. THEN we found out Sharon (brandee's sister) didn't have hats, so my mom sent Brandon up to get two more... what a bunch of headless chickens we turned out to be. Brandee and I stayed up til 12:30 adding tulle, ribbon, flowers, gems and buttons to the hats. (Wow this is really starting to sound like an awards speech or something, better add a i thank my family friends and the man upstairs just in case) I got home at almost 1 and found stuff that i needed to get glued together, and well what the heck, i was already COVERED in hot glue what harm could it do... well i was up til 230, I also decided to fold laundry, I know I know, i must be on crack or something. finally kinda slept, kept tossing and turning thinking what am i forgetting, and WHY cant i get somethings off my mind! and then my alarm went off at 630... time to get started for the day... by 8, I was showered dressed, Frazzled, and ready for it to be over, Before the fun part even started. WOW. We, and by we i mean my mom got the float over to it's starting point while i tried to get kaysha ready to take off and NOT forget anything. Did I mention NOT forget... by that i mean leave the camera at home. Got all the Girlies adjusted on the float, here they are waiting patiently-ish (i don't care if that's not a word). The parade started and I took my place in the crowd, only to have to stand up and run over, because apparently two 8 year olds can't pull a float with 6 girls between 3 and 6 over loose gravel... they were STUCK. gotta love it, so here comes Mom to save the day and help get the float moving. Boy I'm sure that was quite the spectacle. Only to turn around and run back to my spot while the crowed watched, doubt they were looking at me. But i still feel like i stuck out like a sore thumb! on their way back I got a few more shots.

Then tried to get a close up of kaysha, that WASN'T happening. But Ron sure perked up and posed for a picture.

The Kids also got a chance to go down the big slide, here are a few goodies... I hope KZ had fun, cause she was sure worn out by the end of the day.

Poor Neglected blog!

So.... Yes I am a slacker, No I don't plan on changing, OK well actually I want to try, but seriously who am I kidding... Here we go.

On Tuesday June 8Th I had surgery, yes ANOTHER surgery. This time they took my gallbladder. . . I think i got screwed on genetics I swear! None of my other siblings have had their appendix, or gallbladder out, or their knees reconstructed. It's a miracle I have lived this long, LOL. I pray I NEVER have surgery again, EVER! That's what I am hoping for, I fully intend to do everything I can to keep myself healthy, and by being healthy I'm pretty sure I'll be happy right? that's my hope. That having been said. It actually hurts when I eat something greasy or spicy so... there's the diet change I have been looking for! Bad food + Jesica= OUCH. Not for me! And when I can start working out again, and really moving around I want to start walking Provo river trail with kaysha, and eventually work my way up to taking the both of us on the trail on bikes. yes that might be a while, mostly cause the 40 extra lbs from kaysha on the back of the bike takes quite a toll after a while. Maybe she'll get a Bike of her own this summer. If I can find the money to pay for it. Might just have to put in some over time. (sometimes i just hate overtime) but boy does that kiddo LOVE to be outside and in the sun. definitely mine. so now that i have wandered off track a little.... It kind of worked out to my advantage that this last week was all together crappy weather, it made it easier to keep Kaysha in the house. But she just wanted to lay on me and cuddle me. And BOY was she BORED!

By Sunday she was just Itching to get out of the house. We went to Church bright and early in the am, I think our bishop almost passed out from shock when he saw me walk in. And no, the church didn't go up in flames. First thing he asked me was, Did your schedule change? sadly no. I had to have surgery to get the day off. But the Sunday I ended up having off was a good one. It was my friends Baby blessing. After sacrament We went home and changed then over to the Ekins's for BBQ, those Ekins's sure put on a good BBQ. We got home at about 1-ish, and the two of us just crashed. I think we slept til about 8pm. Not so much a shock for me. but for her quite surprising. She got the much needed friend time she's been craving so bad.

Monday was my last day off before my return to work. And i was feeling pretty good, so I decided to try and get some sewing in. Well Robin and Jason came home with two ADORABLE lab puppies. I love Puppies, so does Kaysha. I did finish my sewing but much later. I am sure there is more im forgetting, but i'm done typing for now :)
