Snow in April!

OK so this week was great. lots of wind and craziness. On Friday Jessica Gray and I went up to the Church Cabin for an early day at the ward camp out. WE let the boys play and run around in the trees. It was very fun but windy and a little cold. We set up the tents and I put TOlson down for a nap. After trying to set the Grays tent up it was so windy that it wouldn't stay on the platform so we ended up carrying it (set up) over to the ramada where it was blocked from the wind. Other people started coming and we just hung out and helped where we could. That night it got really cold and windy so we had the BBQ inside and built a fire in the fireplace. Jason and Aaron took down the tents and we decided to sleep inside the lodge up in the loft. It was cold but we had lots of blankets and had a fire going for a while. we stayed up with the Grays and the Bradshaw's and played games and huddled by the fire. Needles to say I didn't get much sleep but at least tolson slept well. We woke up the next morning to a couple of inches of SNOW!!! so we packed up and headed down the Mountain. It was a little scary sliding on the road trying to get out of organization ridge but we did ok. It was cool to see the snow and a fun adventure but when you are not prepared for it, it is COLD! so that is my story for the week. We are watching my brothers kids this week so it should be full of great adventures!

Here are the top 5....

The Beauty of Snow
Warm Jackets
a husband that is willing to let me try crazy things (like camp in the Snow)
Easter and all that it means
a home that I can welcome friend and family into

well have a great week!

OK so whats the deal with the wind! Oh yeah, its April. I seem to forget that this happens every year. So lets see... Last week was great. I can't remember too much except that we got to see Jason a lot (good and bad) and we got to watch General Conference. It was so nice to just stay home and be with each other while we listened to our Prophet and Apostles teach us and guide us. I love being with my little family. I also got on Face book this week. It is very fun top catch up with long lost friends. Some you do want to keep up with and some you don't! Its fun though to be connected to friends a world away(Australia).

So here is my top five for the week.

Good Health and the ability to keep it that way.
technology - to listen to conference from home
Face book
My husband! yes again!
