Long Time

It has been forever since I have posted anything. I have a bizilloin pictures to post, all the way back to Easter. So, I will start working on that this week, I think it might take a while, I haven't even went through them since uploading yet.

We have been busy lately with lots of family time. Kirk's family were here in Utah for a family reunion about 3 weeks ago. It was really nice to see everyone, we had a lot of fun visiting and playing games. It has been a while since his entire family has been together. We went up to his sister Vonda's cabin for 5 days, the kids had so much fun. I am really excited for Tessa, for her growing up with cousins close in age. For one year, from Oct. to Oct., there were 4 kids born. Olivia in Oct, Aiden in April, Tessa in July, and Erin in Oct again. They are going to have so much fun playing as they grow up together. I have such fond memories of playing with my cousins that were close in age. There are 5 of us within a 3 year spread, and we always had a ton of fun playing. Ashley also should have fun, she is right in the middle of Sadie and Ian, so that make those 3 within a year-n-half of each other. Also on my side, my step-sister has a boy KC that is 1 year older than Tessa, and she has a little girl Kennedy that is 3 months younger than Ashley. So that is nice. I think they are done having kids, so any more that we have will probably have to play amongst themselves. (When I say more, I mean only a couple more!)

Anyways, we had a great time hanging out with the family. We played probably about 18 hours worth of CatchPhrase! It was a lot of fun, we got to the point were we had went through all the answers, so now I don't think Kirk and I can ever play it again because now we know all the words!

After we got back from the reunion, my mom came to visit for a week. That was really nice, the girls loved it! Tessa loves grandma, she was so excited to see her. We went to the dinosour museum, had Tessa's 3rd birthday party, did some shopping and lots of playing! It was nice that in our new home Grandma gets her own room, in our old place, grandma had to share with Tessa, so that was always a little crowded. Grandma had so much fun, she wants to come out for Ashley's birthday next month too!

Right before the reunion, we finished our basement. That was a project, but it is done now and I love it! It's one of my favorite parts of the house, it's so cool down here, and the rooms are big. Right now Tessa is in the play room playing dollhouse, she has everything spread out and she loves it.

So that is what we have been up too. Now it's time to take a little bit relaxing and have a mini break from fixing up the house. Although the list is long, we are just enjoying for the moment.
