I'm a slacker

Okay here's the deal, my friend from elementary school has this fabulous blog and was invited by one of her friends to do this nad asked me to do it too so any of you who read this are invited to do the same ( I am kinda skipping Rule #4)...
Here are the rules:
1. Grab the nearest book of 123 pages or more.
2. Open it to page 123.
3. Find the first 5 sentences and write them down.
4. Then invite 5 friends to do the same.

It's an interesting thing to do especially when one reads as little as I do but as soon as I went into the office I knew that I could grab a Harry Potter book and it definitely would have more than 123 pages so hopefully these 5 lines don't ruin the book for any one who hasn't read it!!

"We're not going anywhere," said Harry, while Hermione nodded
vigorously. "You can speak to us together, or not at all."
Scrimgoeur gave Harry a cold, appraising look, Harry had the
impression that the Minister was wondering whether it was worth-
while opening hostilities this early.

I do have to say that I really enjoyed reading the Harry Potter series. I read them all while I was pregnant with Seth, except the final one because of course it wasn't out yet. It took me a long time to decide to read them mostly because I don't like to follow the crowd and figured I had seen the movies so why bother plus I am really bad at reading, I mean not bad bad but once I start I can not put it down, not for sleep or anything so life around me continues without me but when I am gone it seems like the whole world revolves around me and nothing gets done. So since reading the final book of Harry Potter during the summer (it took me about 2 days to read it) I haven't read anything so I though that choosing this one was a good idea :)
Well I am off to do one of my favorite things... watch Survivor with my Sweetie, it sure would be fun with a crowd (like Brent and Katie) who love it as much as us but I am satisfied with laughing at Steves comments!

The House of Coughs

I am about done... 5 0f the 7 of us have a stupid cold... the kind that leaves you with a stuffy nose and a dreadful cough. I have a headache from coughing. So I am feeling very cranky.

It's over!!

Jenny and Eddies wedding was really nice, she looked stunning and he looked handsome and they both looked happy. We are all wishing them the best as they start their life out in sunny South Carolina. Mama Smiths house looked amazing! Those Smith's really know how to throw a party. And even though I really didn't do anything. I was glad to not have to help the day of the wedding, I just needed to make sure the 20 or so cousins kept out of the house but then the Big Boys ended up taking care of that so i went home and crashed for like 2 hours and Karen, Julie, Becky and Malinda totally took up the slack. It was so fun having everyone around. I wish we didn't live so far away, the cousins just have an unending enthusiasm for mishief and fun and I love watching them play and play and play. So it's back to my boring life once again. The boys are all back in school and Ave is having daily soccer practices and i have to come up with something to do for Cubs, I am going to try Malinda and Julies idea as I think it is time for a fun craft.
It's been fun having the wedding because it really brought back all of the memories of mine. i had a beautiful wedding. Steve was so handsome in his tux... oh my gosh he looked good! The boys were so little then too, I look at the pictures and I can't believe its been almost 4 years, they are all growing up too fast. Ben was just a little older than Seth is now!! I love to think about my day, I loved my dress and the cake and the flowers and my bouquet was so pretty. Bishop Paas did such a great job, making Steve say Yes three times before he would accept it LOL The only thing missing was my family. But having them all email me was a pretty amazing feat so i can't complain too much :) yup good times good times
