The longest weekend. Ever.

Do you read my cancer blog? It's updated tonight with the main reason our weekend was quite honestly the longest weekend ever. Really. Head there first...then read on here.

Part of the longest weekend ever was spent playing outside in our very snowy yard.

Here are the ladies with their very cute, short, fat, snowman. (Travis said that snow was a bit too powdery to roll, so he made a big old mound and carved "Frostina" (ady's choice) out. The ladies are quite proud of her.
Adyson, so very excited.
I love this shot. This was taken two seconds after Sienna got outside. She just fell right down and started making this snow angel. I adore the look of heaven on her face. Oh, to be a kid again!







Because we have some of the nicest friends in the world, we were able to forget our stress and go to a Jazz game (with awesome seats, free dinner and parking), on Friday, and to the Aggie game (also awesome seats and parking). We really enjoyed every second of the games. If you know T then you understand that he wouldn't be able to think of anything other than the game while there. It was a perfect distraction, and so much fun. Thanks friends! (and please my appearance in this photo).
And here is the tree, in all her glory. Is there anything more relaxing and comforting then a Christmas tree? I would leave it up all year if I could.

Such good news! Well kind of I am sorry he has to deal with more pain! I am with you I'll leave mine up if you'll leave yours! HA HA let's be honest I love it until the min. Christmas ends and then it is just a depressing thing to look at! So mine is always down pretty quick! I wouldn't mind putting it up lets say mid september! Oh and I was thinking that December needs to take it easy on you from now on!!!

I am grateful that you have such nice friends in your ward and that you were able to have some great distractions over this very long weekend, too. I am way excited to see you tomorrow night at Bunco! Let me know if you need anything...you know I'd love to help :) Love you!

I'm so happy for the good news! Sorry you had to have such a scare! I'm glad you were able to have a little bit of fun anyway and your tree looks beautiful!

Brittney said...

Uh, actually you look really good in the picture. You hottie!

Melissa said...

sorry you had such a stressful weekend! But glad it's nothing too scary! I LOVE your tree, it's beautiful, I agree I wish I could leave mine up all year long....other than it's next to my TV so that means I would be a huge couch potato year round!!!

Trisha said...

You look so beautiful in the picture! I love your bangs (awww, if I could just figure my own out!) The girls are so cute!

Jill said...

I'm so happy it wasn't more cancer and I love your pretty tree.

Two many scares for one little family! I'm glad you had some fun to take your mind off of it, (as best you could). I'm sorry that arthritis is the happy ending, but way better then the alternative, so a happy ending indeed . Love the tree!

I'm sorry about your anxious weekend. "Anxious" doesn't even begin to describe what you must be feeling, waiting for the results! I wanted to talk to you at church but somehow missed you.

Your short snowman makes me smile everytime I look at it:) Your girls are so much fun to watch, and I love the ability you have to find such joy in the little things like snow angels and Christmas trees, and you are teaching your girls the same joys!

Thanks so much for the nice words on my blog, you really boosted my spirits and now I feel like a schmuck because my problems seem really small next to what you just went through this weekend. I am a better person just for knowing you, Hayley. Love you!

Candace said...

We are happy that it is good news, but kind of sorry that it isn't better news. I am glad you were able to get your mind kind of distracted at the game. Your girls are adorable little snow angels!

Gloria said...

You guys are so awesome! We missed you at the Bishopric dinner but we will have one around Valentines!

Haylee Munk Brown said...

I think you should keep the tree up all year...you could decorate it according to each holiday. Just think about it :)

Jamie said...

That picture of Sienna's snow angel is the best! What great friends to help out with such a great distraction! I love your gorgeous tree and I'm so sad I had to miss out on seeing you the other night:( Next time...

Jared Heather and Taegen Pete Johnstun said...

Oh my gosh... what color is your hair? Did you put red in it? Sienna is the CUTEST in her snow angel glory! I totally miss them! Can't wait to see you, do you want to get together next week for a hair partee?

Jami said...

You guys just can't have a break-so sorry but glad it wasn't the cancer.
