The girls decided to find things around the house to give Eric and Hugh. It was very funny what they came up with. Ana said, "Dad's going to laugh." She put his dress shoe in a sack with a card and ribbon, with the help of Julia. I had to get a picture it was too funny. And sorry it's blurry.

A few weeks ago, Eric received a call from his brother, Dustin. Dustin asked if Eric would take his place as tenor in a local choir concert. (Dustin and his wife were taking an impromptu cruise and would be missing the concert.) The performance was at the Orem Public Library. The theme was The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Here is a small portion of what I was able to record before Hugh had a lovely fit...
Diann and Ronny and their family came up for the weekend. We all had a blast. Dustin and Julia came over for the football game. BYU beat OU! We ate great food! We stayed up way too late and ate yummy treats! We played outside and had a relaxing holiday!
Ana came home so happy from preschool... Since this day, she's struggled with going. She says there's a boy that isn't very nice to her, so she doesn't want to go... We're changing times and going in the afternoon with Ana's little friend, Sophie! So, now Ana can't wait to go!
Eric helped Nicholas make his cool boat! I painted the "Y" on it! : ) Nicholas won several times and received an award. He had a lot of fun and only cried at the end when he didn't win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place overall for a trophy. : ) It's builds character, right?!
It was a new dessert made in the crock pot. It turned out awesome. We wish we could have shared it with everyone. Here's the link to the recipe. We just used berries instead of cherries and I would recommend using pears in pear juice instead of in syrup b/c it was a little sweet.
Yeah, let's just say it wasn't pretty and there was "no lovin" for this scruffy man for a whole week! My thoughts are this...I don't go rubbing my cheek against my hairy legs, why would I want to snuggle up to that scruff???? Facial hair is ultra gross! I said it! It's out in the open for all to see. So, Eric decided he had to document this moment before he shaved it off forever!!!
