Descendants of the people of the sheep

It’s a good ol’ family reunion with the best scones, homemade root beer, and lamb fry ever.  This side of the family has sheep herders, or sheepers, or people of the sheep, to whom we are all greatly indebted for the yummiest food in Emery county.  The best part of all was visiting with family and discovering family we never knew.  Of course, being a married-into-the-family member, I hardly recognize anyone.  Isaac made friends with a girl cousin his own age and liked her so much he gladly fetched her a cup of root beer.  As usual, I took a lot of pictures and one of them included the three sets of twins on this side of the family, including Isaac who is a twin unto himself.  It’s starting to seem that if you are not a twin in this family, you are a minority.  I know Chris, Isaac and I certainly are in our immediate family.Grandma Williams with MiriamMiss Elizabeth thinks it’s a little to bright outside.McKayla (sp?) one of Mike and Melissa’s twins, has the bluest eyes!My kids with th…

One whole week in Yellowstone National Park!  Unfortunately, I could not go but my three boys, cousins, grandpa, and two aunts could.  The wonderful thing was, I was left behind with 2 babies and a Chris all to myself.  I missed them, but it sure was nice to have a break from the complaints of boredom and the constant bickering (a result of boredom).  One giant hurrah for school starting next week!  I'm so glad they were able to finish off their summer with one fabulous vacation.  Here’s a collection of photos my dad took of their adventures.

Baby Barf by any other name would not smell as sweet.

I should be sleeping but I thought I should get on this computer once in a while just to make sure the world hasn’t exploded without my knowledge. I’ve been a little out of touch with things and have taken on a whole new method of doing things. It’s probably not really a method when you don’t think about it but in retrospect my days seem to follow the same pattern that could suggest possible planning: 5 am wake up and feed two babies…7 am wake up again and feed two babies…9 am try to sit up and keep my eyes open…9:30 am feed two babies…11:00 am, feed two babies, put on bra, then go for car ride to get two babies to fall asleep…get home, tip toe babies into their rooms, tip toe out…10 min. later two babies wake up and then two babies get fed. You see the pattern or method don’t you? By the way, the bra comes off as soon as I walk in the door as I have never met a nursing bra comfortable enough to wear for more than two hours. What I do in between these non-feeding times is somewhat of …
