February 17, 2011

Just an update since I have some time right now:

Steve's daughter Stevie and her husband are going to be moving here to live with us in the guest house around the end of the month. Their home was being foreclosed on and the bank would not work with them so they negotiated to just leave at the end of the month instead of getting evicted. Stevie's husband lost his job and that messed things up for them and then we can't afford to do anything for them so the only thing left is to have them move here. It will be nice to have Stevie with us again but this was not the best way to do that.

It's been cloudy and will be cloudy with snow all week and I am starting to miss the better weather in California. But that's all I miss there!

My church has had two visitors lately. Lydia is visiting with a family and she decided to stay and so they're doing a wedding at church on Sunday for them and that will be nice. We also have a FLDS boy (he's 19 I think) who came in to the shelter in Denver and has moved in with a family up here. The family is going to help him get himself set up so he is not homeless anymore. He's really nice and I am hoping he stays on in town after he gets a job and all.

Steve sold his airplane because he says it was too expensive anymore to just sit in a hangar and then without a lot of work right now he doesn't need it. Macy, Christie, and me we don't miss the plane because we always worried about him flying around in it and now he's just going to use an airline when he needs to get somewhere.

My pregnancy is going so easy this time. I didn't realize how hard it was the first time until now.

Patty and Laura are doing really well. Christie has been home and she spends a lot of time with all of the babies teaching them and she's got Eric starting to read now and that is so cool! I don't think I did any reading until I was 6 or 7.

The chickens are doing good. We put in some lights in the barn for them and that got them laying more so we are leaving the lights on 16 hours a day for them.

I finished another quilt and it will be a wedding gift for Lydia. I did a quilt with chickens on it. (-:

Things are going on so I have to go but there is most of what is going on right now.

    Sorry to hear about Stevie and her husband's financial misfortunes. It's tough for lots of people these days. It's good they have family who will help them.

    I am happy to hear about the upcoming wedding. Weddings are fun. I wish I was invited to every wedding that happened at my church!

    Glad you are having a healthy and happy pregnancy. Do you know if you are having a boy or girl?


  3. Some more questions for writing prompts (since you seem to like those):

    1. Describe a day in the life at your farm with your family.

    2. Now that you've been married a while, describe how your marriage is different from what you thought it would be (before you moved into the family home), and/or how much it's like what you thought it would be.

    3. Tell us a funny story about what it's like to live in such a big family (I bet all those kids do some romping together).
