ward reunion

well.....


my week has been from hell....a has been sick all week long, b has been in tahoe and came home wednesday @ midnight, trying to get the house organized and dejunked, coordinating movers and packers, and a gift for my brother in laws reception saturday.
but...thursday night we had a ward 'reunion' and parade for the kids to celebrate pioneer day. the 2nd and 3rd foxboro wards got together for a bbq. it was so good to see our friends that are in a different ward now. b and i were in line getting our family some food when we hear...'can we have the bishop and staci come over here'...over here meaning where lynette was holding the microphone. so we left our place in line....b put f on his shoulders and we put our plates down.
on behalf of the ward members, lynette thanked b for being such a wonderful bishop and forming the foxboro 2nd ward....he had tons of help...and for the love he showed everyone. i was moved to tears as she spoke and was getting all choked up herself when out of no where we hear 'SPLAT'. it came from above. we looked up to see b leaning forward and f throwing up on b's head! it was soo funny that we all started laughing! i couldn't believe it. that only happens in the movies! it was classic. jess wright was passing behind us and gave b a glass of water to wash his head off with.
then lynette presented us with this amazing sculpture of christ. her dentist friend made it for us and it is simply amazing. we LOVE it so much. it's beautiful. thank you so much lynette.





we have had such an amazing 2 and a half years here in utah. we have made some wonderful friends...kindred spirits, as anne of green gables would say, and we are so sad to be leaving. we love you all and will keep you posted as to where in nevada we end up. we are really going to miss you all.

That is so awesome and so sad that we had to miss the bbq! I guess we have missed a lot of stuff since we have been in Tx. That is so gross, so funny, and so nerve racking that your baby is sick! That is so hard. I hope all is well soon!

I will never forget F throwing up on B's head! That was so hilarious and what a perfect moment! So glad you like the bust. I love it! Mine is a size smaller but I might ask him to upgrade mine :) I bet it looks amazing on your grand piano and sorry it is one more thing for you to pack :) We love you and can't wait to come and see you!

I didn't get a chance to sign the thank you card, so thank you for being such great neighbors, friends and such great examples to our family. We will miss you so much and pray that you will have a wonderful experience in your new home and ward.
