That is the word to describe the last week or so... and right now I'm in the eye of the storm. Last Tuesday Zeke's Aunt and Uncle came to visit, Friday through Sunday Zeke's Mom came to visit, and on Sunday his sister and her family came to visit. It was good to see everyone, just busy and a little crazy. When we have company, my kids act totally crazy..... I'm always telling them something like, "I would never let you do that, you know that's a rule, so why are you doing it when Grandma is here?" They do things they know are not ok with us.... they just seem to lose it when company's here.... and because of that, so do I. But we did have fun, we went to the Summerfest, had a picnic at Merlin Olsen Park, and ate yummy food.

Just when I thought I could breathe a sigh of relief on Sunday, I was asked to speak in sacrament THIS Sunday..... it's not a major big deal, but I get so stressed... it's just always in the back of my mind ALL week.

And then I really did a dumb thing on Monday.... I'll tell you more later as it all unfolds.... oh brother, Why do I always do such dumb things? Will I ever learn?

Anyway, Zeke finished my "little" kitchen remodel for about $50 (not bad). He is so good to me, I'm not sure if I deserved this. He put a lot of time into it. I love his pose right here.... thanks, honey. The kitchen workstation thingy is so awesome.... Zeke and I can cook together and not be in each other's way now.

Here's the front of it. It's not fixed to the floor so we can move it wherever we need to. :)

Oh and I'm thinking about selling our table and chairs.... we are still not close to what we need for Zeke's tuition (after Gabe's ER visit and such). Anyway, if anyone is interested let me know. We got it new in November 2009. It's a dark walnut (almost black) counter-height table with 6 chairs and a bench that fits 2 or 3. The table has a built-in leaf in the bottom. Maybe $700? I'm thinking we'll just use our fold out table and chairs until tax returns next spring.... we've just got to get through to December.

My kids are so cute. Really. Considering how crazy this weekend was, they were so awesome! I am so proud of them. I just love to sit outside and watch them play together :) Life is good... and it will be much better after my talk is over on Sunday (I hope).


  1. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Don't sell your kitchen table and chairs!! I totally understand why though. They're so cute and you deserve them but how awesome are you for finding ways to save money for Zeke's schooling. That amazes me SO MUCH. I hope you find another way to get money so you can hold onto those beauties but I know Heavenly Father is looking out for you and will bless you for all your efforts. I'm glad you came to my house on Monday too. It was so fun. :) And thanks for being willing to watch the kids. I just figure it was easier not having so many kids in the house. I hope you didn't mind. But THANK YOU for always being willing to help me out. Need a break? Let me watch your kiddos too!!

  2. Good luck with your talk. LOL on the pose. Does it fit 8 comfortably? We have a table that fits six but we have BriLynn in a high chair so we will need something.
    My kids get the same exact way when we have company too. I think they like to see their limits with everyone around.

  3. Sandra, thanks, the table is 42" x 60" (without the leaf in it) that will seat 6 to 7 (we can fit 3 kids on the bench) With the leaf in, the table is a big square 60" x 60" and that puts 2 chairs on 3 sides and the bench on one, so easily 8 or 9

  4. Lacy-you have the cutest kids ever! I love reading your blog and seeing what's going on with you. Sometimes we are just anti-social and so I will chat your ear off I'm sure when I see you next. Let me know if you need anything. You're the best!
