We had the chance to go to Utah last weekend. We wanted to visit Utah before I go back to work (this Saturday is my first shift back) and we took the boys to the Draper Temple Open House (Arabella hung out with Grandma Bird). The temple was beautiful. Joey says his favorite part was riding the bus, walking through the tunnels (tents at the beginning), and getting to walk all the way from the bottom to the top-so basically the whole thing. Jon loved all of the pictures of Jesus. In fact, that was the first thing he said when we walked is was that he wanted to find Jesus. Saturday Peter and the boys went with G and G Rabner to a train show at Thanksgiving Point. We then met my family at Chuck E. Cheese for a birthday celebration. The boys had a great time playing games and earning tickets. They put their tickets together to buy cotton candy (blue sticky sugar, yeah!). We also went and visited Great Grandmother Rabner. She is looking really good and is anxious to be discharged from the rehab center she is in. Sunday morning the boys were thrilled to help Grandpa Bird shovel snow. We had a fabulous time!
In other news, Joey is doing great in his speech therapy and we are all thrilled. Jon is doing fabulous with his potty training and has nearly earned his final reward a Go Diego Go movie that is all about bugs! Joey and Jon have gone to 4 free lessons a local karate school and seem to like it. Joey is doing really well and learning to listen, focus and hold still when he is supposed to . Jon is still just trying to do what he is asked like stay with the class. We are going to sign them up and give it a try for the next several months. I think they will both really enjoy it. Arabella had her two month check and was up to 12 lbs and 22 1/2 inches long. She got her shots and had a fever of 102.9 that first night, poor girl! I have made three trips to the Regional Justice Center for a court case I am involved in at work. The first day I sat in the hall for 3 hours waiting to testify and never did. But, on Monday I spent 1 3/4 hours on the stand, yuck is all I can say! I was told I was finished and then I was called back at 4:00 that afternoon and then sent home again at 5:00. Oh well! Peter is keeping busy with work and chuch of course. He is putting together a lesson on Scouting for a combined lesson on Sunday.
