Electric Violin

What a great weekend. It was Jack's birthday on Friday. We had a great day.
After spending the day on Saturday organizing and cleaning the house, Jack was in our Stake's Fall Arts Festival that evening. He displayed his home made electric violin. After people were cleaning up, a small crowd (a dozen people or so) gathered around to see and asked Jack to play. We had a good time. Jack also sang a Beach Boys Medley with his former cohorts (brothers from this year's spring Joseph play). It was a fun evening. Today in church several people commented on Jack's great violin.

Sleep talker. Sleep walker?

I've heard that sometimes it takes getting used to sleeping next to someone, etc. after getting married. After Jocelyn got married, her husband told us about one night when he woke up without any covers. Jocelyn had them all, so he tried to take some back. Jocelyn grabbed the covers from him saying, "That's mine, you jerk!" Needless to say, I did expect that Jack and I would have an adjustment period.

When I get ready for bed, I brush my teeth, put on my pajamas, pray, etc. Then I go to bed. When I wake up in the morning, I head to the bathroom and hop in the shower to get ready for the day. Of course, before getting in the shower I take off my pajamas (I wouldn't want them to get all wet.) I would assume this routine to be pretty much the same for most people and up 'til now it seems to have been so for Jack.

(This story is about Jack and it's probably not what you're thinking if you're thinking that he took a shower with his pajamas on.) Last night I woke up to roll over in the middle of the night and cuddled up to Jack to discover that he was undressed. So, I asked, "Why are you naked?" (He always sleeps in pajamas, you know.) He answered, "Sometimes I'm naked." And that was that. So, when the alarm went off in the morning, Jack woke up and said, "Why am I undressed?" I laughed and told him about the conversation we'd had during the night. Jack laughed and said, "I must have been asleep!" He didn't remember any of it, despite how he lost his clothes. ...At least there was no name calling. ; )

I Have a Good Husband! : )

Jack is so great! He's stopped and picked flowers to bring home for me several times already. It's very sweet.

In the first picture you can see the nice toaster oven that Tina gave us.

In the second picture you can see Jack's reflexion sitting at the dining room table.

In the third picture you can see the beautiful vase that my parents gave us and the nice candles from my friend, Mary.

Well. it is time to start homeworking, so I won't point out any more details from the pictures. I will say that I am very happy and loving married life, as busy as we may be.
