2011 is Going to be a Great Year!

I find it hard to believe that we 2 are now nearly 14. As you can tell my family is my pride and joy. I love being a mother and watching each person grow and develop. Many changes have happened over the past year. Little Garrett Ryan Lewis joined our family in August. Ruthie is almost 4 and has become a little ballerina. We have loved watching her dance her way into our hearts. Nathan will be 7 this year, he is such a talanted young boy. It is exciting to watch him play soccer, baseball, and do so well in school. We are extrememly excited to welcome a new little one into our family around the first of June. Lara and Joey are expecting and I can't wait to find out what they are having!! Jenna has been busy in college and recieved awesome grades her first semester. She is still working at the orthodontist office while she goes to school. She just sent Jake Rose on his mission to Tonga and hopes 2011 and 2012 fly by fast. Tyler scared us all by breaking his collar bone in 4 places on Christmas day. Since then he has had surgery to repair the damage which includes a metal plate and 9 screws. We hope he heals quickly! Janeal and Terry are both working very hard and hope to be in a new apartment very soon. I am very impressed with their patience and perservance. Our prayers are with them. As you can tell there is never a dull moment in this family! We are trying to plan a vacation this summer all together. Please wish us luck! We really miss Grandpa Harris, as he passed away in December. We appreciate all the good times and memories we had with him. Thanks for reading! Hope we can do it again before the next year!

Spring O, Spring, Where art thou???

I will be so glad to be warm again. It has been a long winter. I look forward to working outside, seeing the flowers and green trees, and talking with the neighbors again. We have all been living like hermits the last few months. I want to put my winter coat away in the closet!! Jenna is graduating in June, Lara and Joey graduate in May, Ryan graduates in May too and a new little grandchild comes in September!!!! So excited!!!!

.:::. Change at the Harris Home.::.

Well this past year I got sick of my house! So I decided to remodel some rooms. I started with the bathroom, went to my bedroom, and then changed my music room! I unfortunately don't have any before pictures... but It was bad needless to say more! So here are some pictures of the new and improved parts of my home! Starting with the Living room. I decided to finally add color to my home! It took a lot of gut, but I am happy with the results! The next room is the bathroom. We made it more modern, this room hadn't been remodeled since a little bit after we moved in! YIKES!! We now have a new counter top, new toilet, bath tub, tile, mirror and paint job! YAY!! Next we have the master bedroom (my room!) I painted, (adding color again) got a new bed! I can finally sleep at nights! A new dresser to match the bed and a beautiful comforter that ties it all together! Finally the music room, I have wanted this mural on the wall for such a long time but haven't found someone talented enough to put it up for me! One of my piano students this year is an artist, and I had her paint it for me! I love it! We also painted the room and got new carpet! I just thought I would share a little bit of what we have been up to! As you can see it sure keeps me busy! On that busy note, Jenna made the lead in the High School Musical, The Secret Garden. She will be playing Mary! I'm proud of her and her hard work she has put into that! She was also part of the Homecoming royalty at Davis this year! She looked very pretty! Lanae started Nursing school again, with her oldest Nathan starting Kindergarten and Ruthie talking everyones ears off! Ryan is also in school and working full time! They sure have their hands full but I love it when I can see the kids! Tyler is still working for Farmington city and is doing Rev energy drinks of the side (along with Jim) Its fun seeing those two work together! Janeal and Terry are both working full time! We get to see them pretty often and have a good time when they are around! Lara and Joey are finally home from their summer extravaganza! It is nice having them close by again! That is just a short update on how everyone is doing! I'm still teaching piano and loving it! Thanks Jim for completing all your honey do's! I love you!

Time keeps going and going and going.....

Time just keeps moving on, one thing after the other! This last weekend Janeal finally got married! It was great having all the family out and to see her get married! It was a wonderful day!

Jenna was also in a play these last couple of weeks! We love going and watching her! She was one of 7 actors in the play Allocating Annie! It was very commical! She did great! She also went to Prom with Jake! She looked really pretty and had a great time with that!

Its nice to have to wedding done! It just takes a lot of work and time and its weird not having something constantly on my mind but nice at the same time! Now only a couple more weeds of school to push Jenna through and then summer will be here!! What a great thought! Until then I think i'll go put my feet up and relax for a little bit... ha yeah right!! what a great thought!
