Baby Shower

On Saturday, my friends from Utah, Katie and Erin, threw a baby shower for me. It was so fun having them here with their babies. Katie's little boy, Jett is 9 months old and Erin's little boy, Eric is 5 months old. Aren't they so cute? And I'm getting pretty big, I am 34 weeks! CRAZY!! All three of us lived in the same Apartment complex in Utah and have been friends ever since. It's so fun that we all have, or in the process of, having babies. I just wish they lived closer. Anyway, thank you Katie and Erin for all that you did!! And thanks to my friends in my Ward that came and gave such great gifts. I had so much fun and appreciate all of you!! Thanks again! :o)

No more Bees!

Tagg was stung by a bee the other day and it swelled up more than when he sprained his ankle! He even woke up in the middle of the night needing to throw up - which the doctor said was a reaction to the bee sting. He had to take anti-biotics and draw a line on his ankle where the swelling was at, and if the swelling spread beyond that line, he would have had to go in for a shot. If anyone knows Tagg and his fear of needles, you'll know that he was faithfully taking his medicine. (Not something he usually does.) Anyway, the swelling went down and all is well. All except for the bees that lurked in our front yard! The bees were getting really bad this year so we were off to the store to find something to kill them. This is where the picture comes into play. Raid is my new favorite product!! It seriously zaps the bee and kills it on contact. So, Tagg was having his revenge and was killing these bees left and right. We found two huge nests under this bench by our front porch, another one under the lid of our garbage can, two in the eaves covering our porch, and then one in our neighbors mailbox that is next to ours. We went through two cans of Raid and haven't seen nearly as many bees since. Thank you Raid!

Most Valuable Player

And the award goes to...Tagg Williams - Most Valuable Player 2008!
Dustin Simmons, Tagg, and Matt Landon after the Championship Game.

Okay, so I am so late on posting this, but better late than never, right? Tagg and a few of his friends played for the semi-pro football team, Eastern Idaho Lionz. They usually play in the AAA division, but after the craziness that went on during the season last year, they didn't know if the Lionz would even exist this year. So, they moved them down to AA and they dominated. It is always fun to see Tagg in his element, I seriously don't know what this kid would do without sports! Everyone keeps giving him a bad time that once this little girl is born, he won't get to play so much. I'm hear to tell ya that I doubt things will change. I am already excited for Basketball to start up and even though we'll have a little one, these sporting events give us a chance to get out of the house. :o) Tagg had an awesome year with the Lionz, he had a total of 9 interceptions. The first 3 were in his first game and the last two were in this Championship game. He was also chosen for the All RMFL Defense 1st Team as Safety. Way to go, Tagg!
