My Mom, Aunt, and Uncle came for a Visit
This was a great weekend. Friday night we went and watched the play Beauty and the Beast, it was awesome. They actually had the Broadway costumes and everything. It was a lot of fun. Then Saturday morning the kiddos had primary program practice and a pizza party. Then that afternoon my mom, her sister Eva, and Eva's hubby Jim came for a visit. We had a great time! We went to a delicious restaurant here in Yuma called El Charro. Then we came back got the kids ready for bed and then we sat and listened to my Uncle Jim play his guitar and sing old cowboy songs, he has some major talent. The kids loved playing his guitar and getting pointers from Jim. I am so lucky to have such great family. My uncle Jim and Aunt Eva are two of the nicest people you could meet. They came out from West Virginia and are staying in Queen Creek with my mom for a couple weeks. Eva is such an amazing lady, she has overcome much. She had a stroke last year and was paralyzed on one side of her body, through a lot of physical therapy and I am sure a lot of prayer, she is walking and doing really well. They are both so wonderful and I am so glad that my kids got to see them and spend time with them. Kenzie and Skyler had their primary program today and both did so well, they both memorized their parts and sang their little hearts out. After church we came back to our house and made dinner and visited some more, then Kenzie had to be a "hair stylist" and comb and adorn Eva's hair with barrettes. She even combed Jims, but hid the barrettes when she started combing his hair. I hope my kids always remember this visit, I know I will. Thanks guys for coming all the way down here to see us. It meant a lot.
