Brianne's New Skill

So it turns out, Brianne has never earned how to ride a bike. So today before she left I tried to teach her how. It's a little bit hard when the person who is learning is on an adult-size bike, but we managed (sorta). I held her up on one side while my dad held her up on the other. That was until Eric got home. Since he's stronger than both of us put together, he was a LOT better at holding her up. I took video of her learning and falling over, but can't post it because no computer. Dang!

The Blessing

We had William's baby blessing today in church. It was so perfect! My parents and sister were here from North Carolina and my mom's family that lives in Utah were abe to come too. Of course Eric's whole family was there also. They are always so supportive in coming to things like this. We probably doubled the size of the ward with all of us. Afterwards, we had everybody over at our house for a lunch and our house was PACKED! It was nice to have everybody there to see the finished house before we sell it.

Us with Eric's Parents

With Danny, Kylee, Ethan, and Logan. Logan was blessed earlier the same day.

Two left feet

My sister has been visiting for the past little while. Tonight she was telling us this story about her dance class and she was trying to imitate this girl's leaps. I thought I'd take a shot at it because how hard can it be, right? It turns out, I am no good. I get my rights and lefts mixed up and I almost fall over. My mom told me that she put me in ballet class when I was little but not to make me a little ballerina. She put me in the class because I was so clumsy and I could fall down walking across the room. She wanted me to gain some grace. I don't think it worked. I looked pretty silly.

This Week

Wow there has been a lot going on this last week. I made my first quilt with lots of help from my mom. We did a lot of shopping in grocery stores and other places to get ready for William's baby blessing on sunday. I worked a lot of hours at jetblue. My dad got into town today after flying for practically the whole day from Raleigh to Las Vegas to Salt Lake. We have all been playing with William and getting lots of cute smiles. Still no pictures of anything though, because Eric has not had time to fix the computer from being out of town so much.

We took my mom and sister to Park City this past weekend. We went to Tanger outlets and main street. I love looking in all the shops and it was fun to show my mom around. We actually found this really cool antique shop that sells all kinds of estate jewelery that we LOVED. My mom and I both have a thing for old-fashioned jewelery. William was really good the whole time we were there. He got a new outfit from Gymboree and I got two new outfits from American Eagle and Ann Taylor. Eric had already bought himself new clothes in Vegas so he didn't get any.

Finally... Eric is home

I am waiting at the airport right now to pick up Eric. He has been out of town a ton the past little while for work. He left last tuesday for Vegas and then went to Phoenix and came back at 4 in the morning on sunday. He was here for father's day, then left again monday and is finally coming back today. I think he has to go back to Vegas next week, too. I wish he didn't have to work out of town so much!

Father's Day

For Eric's first father's day, I bought him and William matching outfits. They are so cute! I will post pictures as soon as we get the new motherboard that came in the mail today installed.

The flu

The flu sucks. Eric has been out of town for a few days now and I have been sicker than I have felt for a long time the past 24 hours. The only good thing I can say about it is that my mom and sister got here from North Carolina at the perfect time. There's no way I could have taken care of myself and a baby feeling this bad. They have both taken such good care of me and I am so grateful to have them here.

Lots of Babies

We went to a baby blessing on Sunday for Eric's cousin's baby. There were a lot of babies at the house afterwards, and we took this picture of all the kids from the Johnson side. From the left to right, this is Madeline, Sydney, Ethan, Logan, William, and Ava. Ethan and Logan are William's first cousins. Logan and William were even born on the same day. William is definately the tannest out of the bunch, but we're not sure why!

I just finished reading the first book in that series everyone has been talkin about... The one with the vampires. The first one is called Twilight. Maybe it's just because of all the hype about it, but it was really not what I expected. I really didn't even like it. At one point, I wasn't sure why I was still reading it. I thought the dialogue was silly, I didn't like the characters, and their motivations didn't make sense. (I don't want to go into too much detail in case someone hasn't read them yet who wants to.) I guess I'm just not a romantic... I'm a cynic.

Our computer crashed about a week ago. I personally think it was Eric's fault because he was working on the electrical stuff on our house and he turned off the main breaker so he wouldn't electrocute himself. But he forgot to turn off the computer first. Our mother board got fried and we lost a bunch of stuff. Luckily, all the pictures of William were already uploaded onto the internet so we still have those. The only pictures we lost were of the house, but we can take more. We ordered a new mother board, but until Eric installs it, I have to blog from the Jetblue computer, which means no pictures. As soon as that's in, I promise pictures of a completely refinished house!

PS I actually did paint the kitchen the other day like I said I would.
