Mons family

Whenever you find a true friend - you should hold onto them. You should keep in touch with them regardless of how far away they are. The Mons are true friends of our family. I posted some pictures of us on the sidebar - enjoy!

They showed up around 11:30pm friday night and we stayed up until at least 1 am chatting...then up again around 9am, when I made mickey mouse shaped pancakes for breakfast. Tyler & Brad took the kids (all 4 of them - what men we have!) to the Air Force Museum while Melisa & I made peasant soup (recipe is on the right sidebar) & rolls while chatting it up like there was no tomorrow. Then after lunch the adults played settlers while the kids played. It was a grand day - one that we didn't want to end. In fact, we tried to not let it end, by staying up until 2am. Nevermind that the Mons had to leave at 6am - we were living it up (as much as is possible for us mormons) and it was grand. I miss them already. This morning Anna was crying because she said they only came for one day. Poor baby, I feel her pain.

This morning Tyler awoke to Anna saying that there was an emergency - she had thrown up in the bathroom. Tyler, the wonderful man that he is, cleaned it all up by himself, bathed Anna, started a load in the wash, and put Anna back to bed. (Did I mention how wonderful he is??) When we woke up this morning - Tyler was feeling nauseated and I didn't feel well, either. So we didn't make it to church, unfortunately. Hopefully we'll feel better soon. I am grateful, however, that we are sick now instead of when I was in school. :o)

Anna lost her other front tooth today - therefore the Christmas song "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" will apply to my baby this year...

You can make me some peasant soup when you are deep in the heart of Texas.
