24 Hours of Heavenly Bless

For Cindy's 60th birthday our Sweet #1 child Angie gave us a nights stay at a Lovely Bed and Breakfast, Milo's Inn in Boulder City. On Thursday about noon we left to go to B.C. Had a very nice drive, we were able to explore some neat shops in B.C.
Here are some pictures we took of the new bridge so you don't have to go over the narrow dam. The second picture is some of the heard of mountain goats we saw near Boulder City. There must have been 40 or 50 of them it was an amazing sight!!! Our room was so beautiful. They must have recently remodeled because the room was very nice with pretty furnishings and a big spa tub. Right out the front door was a coy pond with 2 turtles and 2 cat fish and also a water fall . They had 2 beach cruisers you could go for a ride. They also had a fire pit and a place to BBQ. Angie, you did good finding it on the internet. We had 24 hours of bliss. They have so many cute shops and things to look at. It is like going back in time!!! Thanks so much Angie & Tracy!!!

A few weeks ago I was a volenteer in the kitchen at the Las Vegas Temple. When my shift was over I could barely walk up the stairs. It was so weird and then I found myself with really tight hamstrings and really tight nerves around my tail bone. I suffered with it for a while and after deciding I would need some help with this, I went to the doctor (And oh by the way that night after working at the Temple I came around the corner into the family room and tripped on the rug and fell hard. I was sure my ankle was broken but fortunately I can walk on it so that is the least of my problems!) The next day I still couldn't walk very well or my normal speed. I am in some kind of low-slow gear. Then when I finally went to the Doctor she gave me muscle relaxers and pain med and a medrol pack (steroids) I still didn't fell better and some time during the night the skin at the bottom of my stomach started hurting really bad. So when I got up and looked it was all red and hard and hot. Turns out to be an abcess. It got worse so she had to numb it and lance. It was about the size of my middle finger or a little bigger. I sure feels better since she got all that uck out of me. My tummy feels a ton better and I am walking better but not at all like normal. I am working on it and my Dr. had me also go to a Chiropractor and that helped also. Well I hope I am not too depressing but venting has helped. I am going to post more often. So check in!!! Love To All, Cindy

Andrew's A Funny Boy

Mike, Lindsay, Auri and Andrew stopped to spend the night on their way home from Disneyland. Lindsay got the kids to bed on our bedroom floor. Mike and Lindsay decided to go to a movie or shopping so off they went after telling me the kids are so tired...they are probably asleep already. Well, when I went to bed their was a plethora of odds and ends on the bathroom floor. Things from the cabinets etc. and I also noticed an opened bottle of Mr. Clean. There was only a tiny amount in the bottle but it was empty. I went straight to Andrew, who was then sound asleep, and smelled his breath, there was no smell of Mr. Clean on his breath or around him so I went to bed. The next day when Larry got home he proceeds to tell me the story of Andrew knocking on Papa's head and playing with Larry's Goofy collection and saying I can't go to sleep. Larry scoops him up onto our bed and said go to sleep here and Andrew said " I don't sleep in your bed I sleep in my own bed." So off he went to the floor where he was supposed to be sleeping. He had also turn Larry's side of our sleep number bed clear down to 25 instead of 45. Anyway it was such a cute funny story I just had to share!!!

Larry & I were running errands earlier today. We were in the middle lane when some guy was right next to us. Larry saw someone fly into the air then hit the car right next to us before hitting the ground. We drove over the leaf blower I had to ask what was going on when Larry said "that guy just got hit by a car." So we pulled over & called 911. The guy who got hit lived, he had a broken hip, broken leg & head injuries. We aren't sure if the driver was charged or not but he probably was because the lane he was in was not a lane. After we were done talking with the cop the mustang wouldn't start so we asked the officer if he could give us a jump start he said no it was against rules well after he was done, the cop saw Larry still working on the car & called his sargeant for permission & jump started the mustang. It was scarey I'm glad we were there to help. That poor man that was hit was really in bad shape!!!

The Story of the Rolls...

Well, it is time to confess my mishap with the rolls at Thanksgiving! I wish I had taken a picture! Well, being that I am lazy I bought Rhodes bake and serve rolls. That morning I got the rolls out of the freezer and told everyone "DON'T TURN ON THE OVEN" my rolls are rising the quick method. The quick method is to turn the oven on 200 degrees and then turn the oven off. Then you place a bowl of water in the bottom of the oven and put the rolls onto a cookie sheet and spray them with cooking spray and then spray the plastic wrap with cooking spray and then put them in the oven for an hour or so and they will thaw and rise. You then take them out and preheat the oven and put them back in to cook (of course removing the plastic wrap first).
Well, everything was going well until I started making Amanda's delicious pretzel salad. First you make a crust out of pretzels, butter and brown sugar and bake it for a short time in the oven and then let it cool and finish with strawberries and jello (or something like that). So I turn on the oven to 350 or so and forget that my rolls are rising. When I thought the oven was pre-heated I opened the oven to put in the pretzel crust to find my 3 pans of rolls. The middle pan of rolls were cooked completely and the other two we well raised and I should have just gone ahead and cooked them then but OH NO I take them out of the oven and take the plastic wrap off and the pan that was cooked were fabulous. In fact we ate them all right then. The other two pans were quite another story! As I took the plastic wrap off they fell. So the rolls we had with Thanksgiving Dinner were flat but the ones we ate fresh out of the over were wonderful and the plastic did not stick to them at all.
NOTE TO SELF: When defrosting and rising rolls in oven PUT A BIG GIANT NOTE TO SELF... DO NOT TURN ON OVEN UNTIL THE ROLLS ARE DONE!!! So that is why I am going to have my brain checked so I can know if I am just DUH or if my brain is turning to mush!!!
