I've been TAGGED

A: The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.

B: Each player answers the questions about themselves.

C: At the end of the post, the player then tags 3 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

10 years ago:

3. Grocery Shopping

4. Go to Sam's

What I would do if I suddenly became a billionaire:
Let Shane finish school without having to work, and probably put it into savings and live off the intrest. Move closer to family so that Gaige would know them.

2. Biting my nails

5 Things that people don't know about me:

3. I hate clutter and I am usually very organized but it is not very easy w/ Shane.

4. I love hot weather and hate the cold.

5. I love to read, mostly mysteries.

More from Texas

While we were in Texas Gaige got sick, so I wasn't able to do much. But it was great to be home to see everyone. Gaige was able to play with his cousins ( Joseph and Jeremiah) so that was alot of fun.

This was about the only time while we were there that he let grandma hold him. He was very clingy while we were in Texas. He would scream if anybody besides me would hold him. It really made me feel bad that he wasn't around everyone more so that he was use to them.

We were able to see Jessica before we flew back home. We had lunch at the Rainforest Cafe. Gaige liked it when Grandpa Kevin would take him walking around to see the animals and especially the fish.

When we got home Gaige decided to help me unpack.

Terri gave him his christmas gifts while we were there. Guess what he like the most.

My dad's brothers Bit, Bobby, John, my dad's dad Charles, and my dad Ken.

Gaige and I flew down to Texas a couple of weeks ago. It was a bittersweet trip. I was able to see alot of my family that I haven't seen in years and they were finally able to meet Gaige. We flew down for my Uncle Bobby's funeral (my dad's brother) so it was a very sad occasion. He was only 56 years old, but he had been suffering with stomach cancer for awhile. So as much as we will miss him I think that most of us were okay to see him go, so that he is no longer suffering. He was a very funny man and loved life, and he loved to make people laugh. One year my grandparents and him came up to Logan, Ut. (where we were living at the time), my sister and I returned to Texas with them for the summer. On our way down to Texas he told me that it was okay to speed as long as you stayed behind the eighteen wheelers. The cops would pull them over first and you would get better gas mileage. We will definitely miss him.
