Long time no post

We thought it was about time we updated our blog. I am adjusting to wearing contacts instead of glasses (now people are going to have to find a new way of telling us apart). On Monday and Tuesday it took me an hour to put them in and about 45 minutes taking them out. Yesterday it took me 1/2 an hour putting them in and 5 minutes taking them out. Today it only took 5 minutes to put them in. Hopefully I will keep getting better.

We are busy planning a special party for G-mas B-Day. She was born on Easter Sunday back in 1928 and this is the 1st time her B-Day has fallen on Easter since the day she was born. She has been waiting and hoping that she would be around for her B-Day to fall on Easter again. Since it will be her 1st B-Day/Easter we are giving her a 1st B-Day themed party. We are giving her 1st B-Day cards, balloons and put signs up. We hope she will have a good day so she will be able to enjoy and remember it.

On Monday G-ma had the best day she has had in years. When G-pa and I went into her room she said "I sure was mad today" and I asked her why she was mad and she thought for a while and responded "I don't know, but I was sure mad about something". Later on, G-pa was shaving off G-mas whiskers and trimming her eyebrows. During the trimming G-ma sneezed and it scared G-pa. G-ma burst out laughing and laughed for a good 15 minutes. she hasn't laughed so hard for so long in a very long time. She was also talking really good and understood all that G-pa and I were telling her. we told her about her party and she is getting excited for it.

G-pa recently took a trip to Utah to look at homes and property. There are several homes that he likes. Soon, we all are going to drive to Utah for a few days to look at the homes he likes and look at others. Hopefully we will be in Utah in the next couple of months (but we have been saying that for the past 3 years). Well that is all the news from the Thorntons. We will update again soon.
