Friends, family and Mesa High football...

We had a lot of guests this past week and weekend and had a wonderful time. I will now try to catch up on all our happenings. I have been pretty nauseaus this past couple of days and the pads of my feet are killing me (a side effect of the Xeloda chemo medicine), so I feel a bit behind on my blogging...

 This past weekend, Morgan planted winter grass and Lund and his buddy from across the street Jeremey, decided to help water the new grass. They are such goofballs! Only in Arizona can you play in the hose in late October. Also, right before this picture was taken Lund was trying his hand (pardon the pun), and sign language with Jeremy. Jeremy is deaf, but has an earpiece that helps him to hear along with reading lips. But... it can't get wet, so signing is the only way when playing in the water.
                                           .............those crazy boys!!................
 On Friday night, we decided to hit the Mesa High Homecoming football game. I don't think I have been back to my alma mater in about 15 years. It was fun to see a few people we knew. And the crazy thing was... when they announced the Homecoming Royalty, one of the girls was the baby that lived next door that I used to babysit. I guess she grew up eventually!!
 We also had a great visit with Morgan's sister, Juliet, who was here in town for her 20th reunion for Mesa High.  After church, Will climbed up onto her lap and she became quite the "baby whisperer". He conked out and slept for about six hours. Thanks Juliet, come anytime!!
 We had a family BBQ Sunday night to celbrate Juliet's visit and to just hang out. It was super yummy and we REALLY enjoyed the company!! In attendance: Warren Johnson, Buck and Judi Shumway, and Raychelle. The Garino's and John, Juliet, and our Johnson clan...oh, and the Court family.  Yummy pollo loco chicken was had by all and Judi made an amazing chocolate cake circa Sam's Club.
                                     ........hanging out outside. Gotta love our dead mint plant.
                          The Court family: Chase, Lindsi, Ellie, and Danny
                                            Judi and Raychelle... such pretty ladies!!!!
                                                    I just LOVE family gatherings!

Other happenings last week: Sarah had a bad ear infection, Becky and Canyon Brimhall stayed in our guest room. The Hulse family came down and stayed at our house too. And then Juliet on Sunday. We sure had a lot of fun with guests... thanks for coming! Also, I am on a one week break this week from my chemo meds... yea!!!!!

I am sure there are a lot of more miserable side effects than sore and painful feet. But that is the one that makes me cringe !!!!

So sorry. Let us know if you need the calvary to arrive....

I hope that you know that we meant "cavalry". (Ever the proof reader I am.) What an action packed few weeks you have had. It is lucky that you like gatherings because you are having them. Now we will pray for Lund's feet AND yours. We send love.
