A Family of Sickee's

I got home from California (I'll have to write about that later) on Saturday afternoon and by Sunday 1/2 of the family was sick. Dallin and Preston had pink eye and Gregg felt yucky with a cold. Now it's Monday and all the kids are off for Spring break and we all have pink eye (except Alise) and almost all of us have the cold flu. I feel terrible today! I ache all over my whole body. I just want to curl up and sleep all day, but I have to many things to do. I hope we all get better soon. Gregg felt good enough to go to work today, so it's just me and the kids.

The Blue and Gold Banquet

For those of you who don't know, I am the scout leader over the Wolves in my ward. I really like my calling. It is tough sometimes with 8-10 eight year olds but they are new to scouts and most are very excited to be there each week. This last Thursday was our Blue and Gold Banquet, where the scouts all come with their families, eat a nice dinner, give out earned awards, and have a cake decorating contest. The cakes fit with the theme of the banquet and each scout makes them with their dad (a father-son sort of thing). The theme this year was American ABC'S meaning all the sites, cities, and states in America, so basically anything American would work. Me and a couple ladies pretty much planned and did the whole thing. It was SO much work and the night of the banquet we never even got to sit with our families because we were just so busy. I think it turned out really well, and I am glad that it is over now.

Here is Dallin's cake, it's suppose to be idaho with a river and a guy fishing.

The other scouts brought some really cool cakes, take a look:

Blogged out!

I am sorry I haven't posted anything in awhile. To be totally honest I haven't felt like there was much to blog about (I think I am blogged out. . .if that's even a word). I did however have a wonderful Blue and Gold Banquet for scouts that I helped to put on, I will post about that soon. Right now I have a date night with my hubby.
