The end of an era

The is going away. I just found out that our service provider is doing away with all free accounts on the 13th. So this could be the last entry on the web site. I'm going to go and cry.

The Carpet!

The Carpet is in! :) :) :) :) It looks great! :) :) :) :) All the colors we chose for the walls have turned out great, and our couch even matches now, so it doesn't look so bad! :satisfied: I can't wait until we get all of our furniture back in.

Tonya decided to paint her dresser, as it was all dinged up, and really didn't match anything in the room. She is out in the garage painting in now.

Both Taylor and Shaylie love the carpet.

Shaylie's Dance

Shaylie Practicing

Shaylie had her Dance Show over the weekend. Her costume wasn't ready until Saturday, so that was a little stress.
Shaylie preformed beautifully in her dances :D, unfortunately, her dances and the one's that she was supposed to be doing were not the same ones ;) At least we know that she has a song in her heart. :cool:
She was a joy to watch. We have video at home of her dance, we would put it online, but few others in our family have the ability to download such large files, so you will have to wait and see it on the camera.
Also, we are done painting the hallway and the living room, we also painted the trim and ceiling in our bedroom. We should be getting the paint today for our bedroom and then we will be done.
We pulled up the carpet on Saturday. Our house echos a lot without it. We have our mattresses laid out in Taylor and Shaylie's room. It makes for tight sleeping, but it has been ok. I can't wait until we get our new carpet!

Shaylie is so funny!

I have to post the thing that Shaylie just told me! I was asking her to help me by picking up a dress-up skirt that the girls had left out. I was trying to encourage her by telling her how helpful she would be saying, "You will be the best helper in the whole wide world!" She must have seen through my exaggeration though because she just looked at me and said, "That's not the point, mom!"

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I probably won't post again before then and I just want my family to know that I love you and miss you! Thanks for all you do for us! Happy Holidays!

A big week

We have a lot of things to do this week. I am setting up 36 computers this week for people. I have also setup zen to run differently. Also, I am setting up the computers using a new technique and new software, so this could be interesting.

We also are packing up the house. The Elder's quorum is coming on Friday to move all of our furniture into the garage, and on Saturday, Tonya's relatives are coming down to help us rip up the carpet and paint. The new carpet gets put in on Wednesday of next week.

Shaylie has her dance recital on Saturday. To make me nervous, I don't know if she knows any of the dances. That is usually cute, going to recital's and seeing kids not know what to do, but this time, IT IS MY CHILD. I am going to be a nervous wreck. And to make matters worse, everyone will be here for it.

Back to Work

Here I am sitting in my office again. Had a pretty good weekend, but had allergy's all weekend. Hoping for a phone call saying that my laptop has arrived. I am working on setting up all new ZEN setups for computers, hopefully I will have them done by the end of the week.

I have my winter LAN meeting in Salt Lake on Wednesday. The weather is supposed to be good here, I hope it is good up there for travel.

Shaylie is somewhat under the weather. She had a hard time last night.

Tonya is now a goth :D She was experimenting with hair color over the weekend, trying to get it red. It did turn red ;), unfortunately, it was close to Ronald McDonald Red, so they dyed it very dark to get out that color. So now, she almost has black hair. Will update more later on that.
