Thankful Thursday

1.  I am thankful Addison and Bre had a wonderful time in London.  Their highlight was most definitely their four days in Scotland with the magical Sharkeys.  They saw 30 theatrical productions while there, and mastered the tube and the busses to get around.  I am so happy they could share this adventure.   I can't imagine what it would be like to be with your spouse 24/7 for 8 weeks.  WOW.

2.  I am thankful Lindsey's wedding day was wonderful.  The highlights include Landon falling down the stairs and spraining his foot a half hour before the event,  NO "crazy" parent outbursts--(we were geared up for some), a lovely ceremony conducted by uncle Terry, the daddy- daughter dance, losing James over and over, having Lindsey's puppy at the party, me being bossy so we could keep on schedule, having so many ward people and relatives come out to show love and support, the leaky ceiling, the dance party, skyping Add and Bre on Wayne's ipad so they could be part of it and finding 3 grandma corsages in my fridge the day after it was all over.  Oh well.
Lindsey dancing with her dad, Dale.  Dale stayed, chatted and danced for 4 hours.  We were all proud of him.
Lindsey and James drove off into the sunset so to speak and have been busy setting up their basement apartment and opening wedding gifts.  They are in Lake Tahoe for their honeymoon this week.  Grandma Welch's home is a lot quieter now.

3.  I am thankful for Monson and football.  He did good in the ALL Star game, but we lost 7 to 37.  Our team just hadn't played enough together and the other team had 14 players from Bingham that had been playing together for three years.  Whatever.   He said it was a blast!  Monson will never play defensive tackle again. He is looking forward to D End or linebacker.  He is thrilled to be moving forward and actually registered for classes and spent some time with the Dixie coaching staff this week.  Now if we can just figure out how to help his wrist?

4.  I am thankful  Laila is having a great summer. The Carnival,  Lagoon, Seven Peaks, cousin sleepovers, theatre/dance and piano lessons, swimming at Krystins, Bear Lake vacation, sleeping in and staying up late!  Ah summer!!!!!

5. I am thankful for Landon. He was a great help for Lindsey's wedding. He finally has an appt at the migraine center at the U.  This is a huge ordeal. He spends atleast 72 hours every week in bed and throwing up.  It is debilitating and has only gotten worse.

6.  I am thankful for swim suit cover-up weather.

7.  I am thankful.
