Thanks to Mike & Lori who hosted Thanksgiving in their home this year! We had so much fun with the Hansen crew! Mike & Lori let Ryllie and Maddux have a sleepover and then took them to the Dinosaur Museum the next day. They loved every second of their time with grandpa Mike and grandma Lori. Thanks for spoiling them!
We had a scare with Grandpa this week. His heart was failing and after going to the hospital they put him on a medication which put him into cardiac arrest, and they ended up performing CPR for six minutes and shocking him twice. They were able to get him back, and we rushed over to the hospital and Casey gave him a blessing. When grandpa was awake he was highly medicated and although it is not out of the norm for him to be joking around, his joking around was beyond silly and we were so grateful to be able to sit with him and laugh. He had surgery the next morning and it went well and he is now home and on the upswing of things. The experience was scary for me. I know he is getting older, but the thought of him dying just tears me up! Grandpa Hansen has been such a huge influence in my life, and his ALWAYS optomistic attitude and sincere love for everyone inspires me to try harder to be more like him. I am very grateful to our Heavenly Father that He has let grandpa stay with us a little longer.
Laura and I took Ryllie and Max to see "Into the Woods" at the Hale Centre Theatre. For anyone who has never seen this play, the first half is funny and kindof a spoof on fairy tale stories we are all familiar with, then the second half turns kinda dark and apparantly the message of the play is that life isn't always a happily ever after, but to teach our children good things because although they might not always obey, they are always listening. Hmmmm.... if thats the case, I really better watch what I say! Doh! Anywhoo, we had a great time, and the girls enjoyed the play and came home singing the songs.
I am so behind on blogging, so I'll be posting as much as I have the energy for tonight! A quick blog about Twilight! I was so excited to go see the movie and even talked Casey into coming with me and the Folkman's to see it on opening night. He wanted to kill himself by the time the movie was over and kept sighing with boredom through the entire movie. It was pretty hilarious! Me, on the other hand, am very easily entertained, and really enjoyed it. I ended up loving who they casted to play the parts, and really enjoyed the movie! I've heard many different opinions on the movie, some loved it, some hated it, but I figure you can't please everyone.
