Say A Prayer For AndyMy brother Andy was having some problems with his leg, hip, and back after he fell a couple weeks ago. He has had one hip replacement due to treatments that he had when he had cancer. To make a long story short, his doctors in Montana thought that it was just his other hip giving out on him, so he decided that he would come see the Doctor here in Idaho that did his first surgery. Before he got here he started fevering, his leg started swelling, and his white blood cell count was elevated. They did an MRI and found an infection deep in his leg. The good news is that he doesn't have to do the hip surgery right now. The bad news is that when they did surgery to drain the infection, they think it is strep, so he is having a hard time. Keep Andy in your prayers, and if you happen to be in Rexburg maybe swing by and say hello.

For those of you that know me very well, you know that I am not much of reader or a writer. But, I have really got into blogging. I found this quote on someone else's blog, and I decided that it really explains why I have/write on a blog.

Hypothesis: We are capable of following simple directions and therefore acheive similar results.
Results: Dew fizzes when you add baking soda. Hands smell of vinegar after reaction even though vinegar is not used. The only light we acheived was from my nifty flip flops that light up in the dark.
Conclusion: We did not acheive similar results therefore we cannot follow simple directions. Although we did not get the desired effect we did learn that Dew fizzes when you add baking soda. After further investigation it was discovered that contamination by saliva took place, and could have hampered the results. It was also discovered that the experiment was conducted 30 minutes after opening the said Dew, so if carbonation plays a main factor in the reaction, this may have had a negative effect. It was ALSO discovered that 1/4" of Dew was to be left in the bottle, not 1/4 of the bottle. Our new hypothesis states that if we weren't ding dongs and listened carefully to the directions, the reaction may be duplicated.

From a young age I decided that spiders had a vendetea against me. On occasion a hobo (spider not grocery cart man) would follow me across the floor, or run across my blanket on my bed (true story), or stalk me from beneath the ledge in the bathroom. Well, David thinks that I am insane. He does not understand that all arachnids are out to get me! (Or atleast scare the crap out of me, I actually haven't been bit by any of these perpetrators) Well, tonight I got more proof for my theory....
I saw a huge spider by our porch light, so I wanted to get the camera to zoom in and see if it was a catface or something else. So I went out and took a few pictures to look at when all-of-a-sudden the spider dropped all the way down to the steps. It scared me, so I jumped back down the stairs. No sooner than I stepped off the first stair, then the spider started to run to the edge of the same stair. So I stepped down to the ground and yelled to David. (Like a whimpy girl I might add. Pretty sad calling to my injured husband!) Then the spider followed me down all 3 stairs! He was after me I tell you!!!
Needless to say David got the cats and the dog away from the door, and I dashed up the stairs and in the door before the spider could wrap me up in it's web of death!!

Last Wednesday was the day she finally got to go to school. When we got there David walked her into the house, (The preschool is in the basement of my step-sister Cajsa's house) and they headed down to the preschool. When we got to the preschool room Ella got to find her chair. Although she can't read, she does know what her name looks like, so she was so excited to find the chair with her name.

Ella loved looking at all the animals, especially when Grandma Cederstrom would tell her what they were, and help her touch them. This aquarium had a crab in it that Ella just thought was hilarious. It was a rare moment when Crabby wasn't a bad thing! Ha ha....ok bad joke moving on...
Ella's favorite part was definitely looking at the sharks. If we would have let her she would have looked at the sharks ALL DAY LONG!!
Although we had a lot of fun, the main thing that us adults got out of the trip was an intense desire to eat sea food!!

A couple weeks ago (yes I'm behind again...) we had a reunion in Draper, so on the way we decided we would swing by Bear Lake and see uncle Ted. It was Elena's first trip to lake, and once we figured out how to make her happy, she had a pretty good time.
One of the coolest things about Bear Lake this year, is that Dave finally has a child that is big and brave enough to go in the water with him. Ella had a great time playing in the water! Eventually she got cold, but she doesn't have any insulation on her whole body!!
Have you ever seen the commercial where the lady is talking about how stains mysteriously happen or mysteriously cover themselves up? That is exactly what I thought of when I saw the scene before I took this picture. A 8 month old baby (that can barely sit up) mysteriously reaches into a box (that is out of arms reach) and strings yarn around her own head and half-way across the room... hmmm... something doesn't quite add up.

Ella will forever be able to say that she has her father's eyes. Both Ella and David have the most beautiful sea blue eyes that could melt the coldest heart. (I should know, I get pretty cold sometimes!) It's no wonder that people comment both of their eyes on a regular basis. Someday I hope that I can look into Ella's eyes and see that she has the same open-minded and charity driven eyes that her father has always had. Sometimes I can't believe how patient and loving Dave can be. I nit-pick and bug him a lot more than I should sometimes, but somehow he still puts up with me and the kid's and loves us anyway. I could never thank him enough for giving Ella the best example for what her eyes could be.
Elena on the other hand has been blessed with beautiful, dark, brown eyes, which do not look the slightest like David's, but they are just like both of her grandfathers. Dark soul searching eyes, that make you feel the love that she has for you. Both my dad and Dave's dad have/had these same warm welcoming eyes. It amazes me how both of them saw the good in people, in a way that I can't even imagine.
I remember my dad always helping everyone, no matter their race, intelligence level, or opinion. In Dave's dad's eyes I have seen an extremely loving grandpa who has stepped up and been there for my kid's when they really needed it. It is so nice to know that your kid's have grandparents that will watch over them, love them, and maybe even spoil them once in awhile. Thank you Mike, you're the best!!
My new hope is that these two beautiful girls grow up that they can see the examples that these wonderful father's have set for them, and they can do more than just "look" like their "father's eyes", but also see all the wonderful things that these father's can see.

As is tradition my mom and I went and taught at Alpine 4-H horse camp again this year, only THIS YEAR we got to take Mickell, Ella, and Elena with us. Plus, we got to hang out with Tracy's family that she brought up. But, the most exciting thing about Camp this year was that Ella got to do Cloverbuds classes, which included making her own stick horse (Belle) to ride on a trail ride and through the poles and barrels. Here are a few pictures of Ella, Trisha, and Kaylee (her cousins) riding their stick horses.
After we were done teaching classes on Friday David, Lisa, Landon, Ethan, Carson, Sydnee, and Madelyn all came up to go to "THE" DANCE with us. We had tons of fun dancing, and the kids just loved being thrown in the air by Misty and her "friend" Mike. Although it is common known fact that what happens at horse camp stays at horse camp, here is just a small peak of some of the fun that we had...

Although we had tons of fun playing and camping the night before, we woke up to them telling us that it was too windy to launch the air balloons... We spent the rest of the day watching fiddlers at a fiddling competition, visiting the arts and crafts fair in Victor (where my uncle Nick sold his butt gourd... long story...), and playing around at the cabin.
For more information regarding cakes that the pictured children's FAVORITE aunt has made, please visit www.frostedwithlove.blogspot.com
Later that night Grandma gave all the kids a MILLION light sticks (ok maybe not a million) and this is what we witnessed...
After late hours of pinochle that night...
The next day we cleaned up and got ready to go home, but before we went home Mickell was kind of enough to provide us with some good old fashioned fiddling, and you know us... we couldn't help ourselves...

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It could be scary what ya'll remember about me, but that's the fun of the game!!

What do you do when you are camping and you don't have a bib? This week we were at Horse Camp and I was feeding Elena some baby food. Grandma Tamara decided that Elena needed a bib, so she got a diaper bag and cut arm holes in it for Elena to wear. Chaulk it up to Redneck intuition, but the bib actually worked quite well!
