Yours, Mine, and Ours

I'm sure you are all aware of the wedding that took place in July. Well, combining the two families has really been a unique experience. The families seem to do well together and get along for the most part. Thanksgiving was an adventure because we had to turn the table so it was diagnol in the dining room to get enough seats for everyone. It was really quite neat! :) Thanks to Tia and Dad who got all of the food prepared with a little help from everyone else.

Engagement! :)

As I'm sure you have all heard by now, Jeffrey is officially engaged to Tia Lamb. I know there are those of you that expected Jordanne to be the next one married, but it's not her turn yet! :) The Saturday he proposed, us kids spent the day getting everything ready for him. We spray painted a huge 30 ft. sign that simply said, "Tia, will you marry me?" and continued preparations by getting apple and white grape juice, a folding table, a rug, and paper cups loaded into the Excursion. Tia was coming back from her daughter's senior trip that day, so as the bus rounded to corner, you couldn't help but see the huge Excursion with the boat behind it, and a sign taped across them both! All the kids were there to watch as the shock showed on Tia's face... Now that we got that cleaned up, we have the wedding itself to plan! The date is set for July 18 of this year.

As I sit here, thinking about what this wedding will mean, I realize many things will change. But, this is quite simply a new beginning for two families joined as one. Yes, there will have to be adjustments on both sides, but I think this will be for the improvement of both families. I will personally have to make some changes, as I will not be the youngest child anymore, and that in and of itself will be strange! :) But, as I said before, it is for the benefit of both families!

Wow, since it's been over 5 months since I last posted, I decided it was probably time to. With softball and school and just everything that has been going on, I just haven't found much time to write. Jordy's and my softball season just got over after playing hard against Snow Canyon. Overall it was a good season with lots of new friendships made.
Jordanne is finally done with Math 1010 at Dixie college and got 100% on her final! :) Great Job, Jordy! Senior Ball was a lot of fun for Jordanne. She couldn't have looked any prettier!Jordy also had her Seminary Graduation Last night.
We are all staying busy, especially with this Thursday being graduation day for all the high school's down here. We are also very excited to be able to break out the boat and are heading down to Lake Mead this Friday to celebrate Jordanne's going on to college. Or maybe it's just so we can get out on the lake. ;)

Well, I can't believe it!!! Little St. George had a snow day, today!!! For about 6 inches of snow!!! Yes, it's silly and doesn't make sense, but who cares?! We got school out!!! Well, of course I couldn't help but plan a snow ball fight with all my friends, unfortunately only 5 of us could get together, but hey, we had a blast anyways!! No worries, I did remember to take pictures of the snow, since it's such a rare occurrence, I just hope they work!!! I had a blast, and hope others did as well! But, Dad, being who he is of course, had us shovel all the walks and everything! But it wasn't too bad!Ü

Finally writing!!!

Well, I was sitting here thinking "hm...I can either do my homework or post on the blog site..." obviously you all now know the outcome!!:) This one is going to be either way long or way short, so I hope I don't bore you all; anyways... Well, so much has happened!!! Jordanne made the basketball team (was there ever any doubt?) and has played one home game and in a tournament in Page, Arizona where they took third!! Way to go Jordy!!! But, unfortunately, she pulled a muscle during practice yesterday... it's rather sad!! Also, she is pulling good grades and continues to be a great HOSA (Health Occupational Students of America) president!! But, she's just a great person!! D.J. (as far as I know) is doing great and loving being married and in boy scouts in his ward(he never did grow up!) Rachel is a great person even if she does cheat(of course the rest of us do, too!Ü) Jeff has been keeping himself busy, juggling work, and raising two teenage daughters, all while trying to maintain a healthy social life. He does pretty well, he makes it to Jordy's basketball games and whatever I happen to be doing with the band! I was just in the orchestra pit for the musical my school put on, "Guys and Dolls" and during the weeks preceding the performance it seemed like I lived at the school, oh wait, I did!!!:) but, I wouldn't trade it for anything!! I learned a lot, made some great new friends and had loads of fun!!! Now, we've just finished the winter band concert, and we've had plenty of marching parades, and the Veteran's day concert. Plus, I still need to tell you all about the eventful Thanksgiving we had!! It was great!!! But better left saved for another time...Ü Sorry there aren't any pictures but I really need to go finish my homework, so I will write when I can(hopefully a lot sooner than last time, however!)

Jordanne made homecoming royalty!! Of course we all knew she would!! She outshined them all even if she didn't get crowned queen!!! She was beautiful in her teal dress with pale pink and light orange embroidery that complemented her hair so she really looked like a princess. She was by far the most beautiful there!! Pine View homecoming week was filled with a new adventure every night, starting on Monday with paint the town, where all the students took window paint and decorated all the businesses on Telegraph. Tuesday was the oh so wonderful powder-puff game! Unfortunately it was not rigged!! Seniors had to win by "technical difficulty", but the half time show was a must-see! The "Pink Panthers" looked great out there with the boys dressed in pink shirts and mini-skirts. On Wednesday was the first annual homecoming parade, with Jordanne riding the fire truck and Jillian marching with the band. Thursday was the pep rally and Friday, of course, the game! Jillian was decked out with a giant PV on her face and playing with the pep band, and Jordanne looked great during half time when they had royalty come down in their formals to be "crowned". Over all it was a great week!! Now if I could only get Jessica to send me some good pictures!!Ü
