Hannah's new language

One morning this week, Hannah announced to me that she had learned a new language. I said,"Oh really? What is it?" I was thinking that she was talking about German due to the fact that Mark knows German and speaks German often to the girls. She sat at the counter with a big smile and very proudly said,"It's fartenese." I had to mop up the pee off the floor.

Car trouble

Last Monday, I was coming home from Salt Lake and was stopped at the light at the off-ramp from I-15 to Antelope Drive. The light turned green and I pushed on the gas pedal and the van died. Fortunately the van started and I was able to get around the corner (out of the intersection luckily) and it died again and would not start. People were honking and no one would stop to help me. I knew that there would be a benefit working for the Syracuse Police. I called them and they put me in contact with Layton City who contacted the Highway Patrol. This is the kicker......I think I was old enough to be the MOTHER of the trooper that showed up. He was very kind and pushed me into the parking lot of Davis County Hospital. I can imagine the conversation that night when this nice trooper went home.... the 20 year old wife, "How was your day, honey?" The 22 year old trooper, "It was boring..I did help a little old lady with car trouble get her van out of traffic."

It was determined that the fuel pump was out on the van. It was replaced and back on the road the next day.

Kayla's Birthday

Kayla celebrated her 9th birthday on Monday. Time passes by so fast. Kayla was very excited about her birthday this year. She said that this was her best birthday ever. She thanked us over and over for her gifts and for her party. She is so sweet and loving. She is our little "Brownie". She is the only one of our girls that has brown hair and she has hazel eyes. She is quite the beauty. She is doing very well in school. She is a whiz at math and is very creative with her art work. She loves to help when I make dinner. She is rather comical as well. We are very blessed to have her in our family. Love you, Kay.
