Glendale Glitters

The day after Thanksgiving, we went to the opening night of Glendale Glitters. (after a loooong day of shopping) There were sooo many lights. Luke's favorite part of the night was the bus ride from GCC to downtown Glendale.

massage chair

Jeff has a back massage chair that Luke LOVES. He always likes to sit in it. And when Daddy is in it, he will push him out so he can sit there. The chair also vibrates your butt (which Luke likes more than the back massage)

fun at the park

going to the park is always fun. But more fun when you have a buddy to go with.

tragic times

Yesterday morning, we got a phone call from Jeff's mom. Jeff knew something was wrong from the tone in her voice. Jeff's step-brothers (?) baby boy died in the middle of the night (probably.) He was only 2 1/2 months old. The fire fighters said it looked like suffocation. Anyway, his parents are only in their early 30's, and they have a 3-4 year old daughter. They told her that her baby brother went to heaven. Jeff' step-brother and hi wife are facing a really tough time right now. Jeff and I went to visit them last night.

It is in times like these that I am so thankful for the church and the gospel in my life. It got Jeff and I thinking a lot yesterday. With all the great pain felt by them and any other parent who loses a child; it is a great blessing to have the fullness of the gospel and know that families can be together forever someday.

Although it was a sad occasion that we went to visit, Jeff felt strongly to give them a book of mormon. So, we'll see what happens.

On Friday, Grandma picked us uup and took us back to her school for a BBQ. there were some bounce houses for the kids to play in. (Mom forgot to take pics-oh well) I got my face painted with Grandma's school colors. RED & BLUE (coyote paw prints on each cheek) Afterwards, we decided to go to the mall for a little bit.When Grandma Nevada saw these at Children's Place, she couldn't resist buying them..

Last Saturday we went to the zoo. There were some halloween activities. we didn't stay too long because it was pretty warm out.
Luke's cousin Tanner went with us. Luke adores Tanner.

In one tent, they had a huge operation game. Tanner took out all the bones several times.

1st week in nursery-- YEAH!!!

Today was Luke's first time going to nursery. He turned 18 months on Tuesday. I was excited to be able to attend class.
Luke was not being very cooperative after church for pictures due to his nap time. (should have got them earlier)

Anyway, when I took Luke to nursery, all the other kids were crying. Luke just looked at all of them like "what's your problem?" He pushed me away and went to sit down at the table. He did great! When I went to get him, the teacher said he only cried once cause he bumped his head. I was so proud of him. He is such a great kid. We love him so much.

On Saturday, Mommy, Grandma Lorraine and Luke went to the kids faire at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Grandma Nevada was working selling tickets for this event. She got off at 4 and was able to come downstairs to have a little fun with us. While we were there we saw a circus, sat on a pony, went to a petting zoo, rode a camel, and saw a lot of other neat things.

A kid and a box

Give a kid a box and he'll be entertained for hours

moving SUCKS!!

we had a 12 x 12 room and a bathroom we were renting from my brother, Pepper. We will have a one bedroom apatment all to ourselves.

We were supposed to move on the 8-9. Well, the apartment called Friday morning and said that the painter's and carpet people hadn't been there yet. So our apartment would not be ready for another week. I want to know what they have been doing for 2 weeks. We had to call and tell everyone not to come help us move on the 9th. And call SRP to postpone electricity turn on for another week. FRUSTRATING. anyway, all is set for this weekend. I get to go pick up the keys tomorrow. YEAH!
