February News

Happy Valentines Day!!!

Hello Family!!! Time is flying by and so am I "on crutches". I never thought that crutches would be so hard! The stitches are out and now I just have to gradually put weight on the foot.

This last weekend we went to Lubbock for Nick's sealing. It was really special. Our old friend President Hendrix performed the sealing and he really did a fine job--the talk was great and it reminded me of how important it is to be sealed as a family. It is time to do our geneology so all of our family can reap the blessings of living with their families forever and ever and the importance of living up to our covenants so we too can live with our families for time and all eternity. Nick looked so cute in his little white suit. He had no clue of what he was doing, but we all realized how lucky he was to be sealed to a forever family and someday he will too. Chad pulled his trailer to Lubbock and we stayed in the "barnyard with the donkeys and the rooster. Tammy's parents came as well as Kumari. Coby was there too. Barrett had an interesting weekend--he saw prairie dogs, a man with a hunting hawk, buffalos, llamas, etc. We really had a nice weekend. Coming home the wind just about blew Chad's trailer away.

Ladd has been sick. Zebb was in the hospital two weekends ago with RSV. I think everyone has had a cold! I hope everone can get through the flu season without getting caught.

Last month we only had three comments to our blog. I want to challenge every family member to take the time to comment this month and let everyone know about some event in each of your families.

Don't forget Tammy's blog: www.threegirlsandarussianboy@blogspot.com.

Thought for the Day:

You burn 26 calories in a one minute kiss.

There are 26 calories in a Hershey Kiss.

Hershey's Kisses are called that because the machine that makes them looks like it's kissing the conveyor belt.

Have a good day!
Love, Nana

January Is a Good Time to Start

Today I am at work sitting with my leg propped up on my desk and trying to type--it looks very professional and ladylike!! I have been thinking of a blog for a long time--since Tammy started hers and so I thought now would be a good time to start. I don't know how to do much with it so I have just started. Teela Watson will be a good person for me to learn from, and Tammy can probably help us too. Anyway lets start and learn together. We can share our what we know with each other and how to add to our blog.

Walking on crutches has been a challenge. It is much harder than I thought it would be and at this point I am very tired. I have to go see the Dr. Wednesday and I hope he has good news for me. I hope to be off the crutches by the time we go to Lubbock for Nick's sealing--Feb 7.

Poops has been working at the Stock Show in Ft. Worth all last week, and will be this week and next. He is really getting behind on his washing and ironing so I will be glad when he gets done! He has had a cold as has Zane. That little guy just can't get over it. Zebb is growing and filling out--he is 12 lbs. now and has grown 5 inches. He also has red on the head!!

Coby is back in Dumas working. It is snowing there right now. He is sure enjoying working with his crew!! He told me today that he has decided that they "don't care". Surprise, Surprise!!

Nick had his 2nd birthday on January 12. I guess that is all the celebrations for January. Let me know if I have overlooked something.

Well, send all your family updates and funnies or any interesting information to the Brown Blagh and lets see what happens!!!!

Thought for the Day---

There comes a point in your life when you realize

who matters,

who never did,

who won't anymore...

and who always will.

So, don't worry about people from your past,

There's a reason why they didn't make it to you future.

Love, Nana
