Blood Draw Anyone???

I just wanted to write a quick post and tell you how our day at the blood lab went. We ALL needed to get blood drawn and in AZ you have to go to a lab that is not at the hospital to get it done. So we woke up this morning and headed to the lab. It all went down hill from there. Talamage went first and boy that kid is unbelievably strong. It took every ounce of my srength along with a hefty nurse to hold him still enough to get his draw. He of coarse was going balistic. Poor guy he had no idea what hit him, but he knows he didn't like it. Chelsi went next and the disaster got a little more intense. She as some of you might know does not do well when getting pokes with needles. She was doing fine until the end but then passed out. Talmage started freaking out cause he could tell something wasn't quite right. Things got a little crazy, but everyng turned out OK. On our way out of the lab it was sad to see the kids faces in the waiting room cause they could hear the whole thing and they were scared to death. That kind of morning deserves a little ice cream and playing at the park. Hopefully we don' have to do that again for a LONG time.

Ashley and Jardin Gleason

Last week was Chelsi’s little sister Ashley’s wedding. Chelsi spent the whole week in Utah for all of the festivities. I flew in on Friday night at midnight for the big day on Saturday. Then we drove back all the way home on Sunday. What a weekend. Ashley and Jardin’s wedding was so great. They got married in the Salt lake Temple and had their luncheon at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Then later on the reception was held at the Christenson’s house/yard. Everything was just beautiful. Those Christenson women can throw a heck-of-a wedding. Ashley looked wonderful and Jardin wasn’t ugly. They are a cute couple and we just wanted to welcome Jardin to family. We had a great time at the wedding and Talmage couldn’t have had a better time.

Mom and Dad come to Mesa

So a week or two ago Grandpa had some business down here in Phoenix and since Grandma had been out of commision becuase of her rotator cuff surgery she was able to come along too. We had such a great time together. We went out to eat at some of our favorite places and just spend some quality time together. We actually had grandma here for her birthday which was pretty fun too. We did one thing that was really great when they were here. At the Mesa Temple they have a Easter pageant every year. It is actually the largest outdoors Easter pageant in the whole world. There was easily 5 thousand people there if not more. The pageant was really done well and er had a great time. I think grandma liked it the most and is planning on heading down again next year.
