Unfortunately, this year Mark's birthday not only happened to be during the week he would be working in Oregon, but also during a business trip to Las Vegas. I decided that if he couldn't be home for the party, the party would go to him. So I called his boss and made arrangements for us to throw a surprise party for him during a "meeting" with all of his work associates who were with him in Las Vegas. Me and the kids happened to plan a trip to St. George for Spring Break, which also happened to be during this same time he would be in Vegas so it would work nicely for us to slip into Vegas, beings that it is only an hour and a half drive from St. George.
Sherry, Mark's boss, called a mock meeting in her hotel room...aka Mark's party, the morning all the Mattress World people flew in from Portland. We arranged for me and the kids and other friends who made the trip to hide in the back bedroom of the hotel suite while the group of Mattress World employees and Mark, arrived for the "meeting". As the meeting began, Sherry said she felt like breaking out in song, thus our que to barge out of the back bedroom while singing "Happy Birthday". The look on his face was priceless and he was pleasantly shocked and happy to see his family.
The funny thing on top of the surprise party was that my Mom was running late for the party and when her and my Dad pulled up to the Trump Tower, my Dad literally dropped her off at the door while he went to park and she ran in so she could get to the party on time. Well, when the time came for her to barge into the room with her skit, I sent Colton out into the hallway to get her and she was nowhere to be found, but my Dad had already parked and made his way up to the 51st floor and found the room. Where in the heck was my Mom???
In true Karen fashion, she was lost and going up and down hallways knocking on doors looking for the party dressed up in her getup. (If you look close, she has one extra big boobie and one small boobie, no makeup, and quite the outfit....what a site she was!!) In Vegas hotels, there are several elevators since there are so many floors and certain elevators go to certain floors. She couldn't figure out which elevator to go on so she was just going up and down elevators knocking on doors hoping to find the right room!!! I'd love to see the faces of the guys in the security office as they are viewing the hotel action and wondering what the heck was going on. If you know my Mom, it makes this story only funnier........
LOVE YOU MY GOOD GOMER!!! xx 00 xx 00

Brandt celebrated birthday number 26 on March 7th. Is that thinning hair on top of his head?!?!If he can be that age, it must mean that his parents are pretty dang old!!
Don't know why he thought this looked like a good place to lay down
Baseball Season has started! We just got back from the first tournament - March Madness in St. George. Carson wouldn't let me get a picture of him so this is it. Grammy, Kortney and Chase

Life sure flies by! Can't believe the school year is coming to a close. The final term started this morning!!! Spring is finally in the air and Mark got his "cold" items planted in his garden last week. He is still doing the commute to and from Oregon for work and he's busy busy busy. As for the mommy, she's just happy to still be able to be home during the day with the kiddos and babies and having fun with the kids activities, especially Spring Sports. Hopefully we won't get behind with blogging again and will try to do better! :)

Kortney is back at home living temporarily and with that, we get to have Diesel, her small horse.....I mean Great Dane, spend time with us. He slept over on Christmas Eve and was able to enjoy the chaos and fun with us Christmas morning! Our tree is pretty tall this year and he goes up to about the half way point of it. You can see Tank in the background and he is considered a large lab but he looks small next to Diesel.

When we got home to our house later that night, the kids also have a tradition of opening up their new pj's.
Looks like Santa visited the Good Gomer's house and everything is all set for Christmas morning

Last night we had our family Christmas party and made a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. It was our "off" year at Thanksgiving this year, which meant that it was the year everybody went with their in-laws or other families so we decided to have our big turkey dinner for our Christmas party where we would all be together. The food was yummy and we all ate way too much. It was a great night being all together.
It's a family tradition to go to Gardner Village's Christmas Shop to get a new ornament for each of us that depicts something about us for that specific year. This is something anticipated for weeks at Christmas time. We had set aside tonight's Family Home Evening for the big night since it was the first Monday that Kylie would be home with us. After we all pick out our ornaments we always have snacks and hot chocolate at The Village Bakery. We also delivered Christmas gifts around the neighborhood before we left. It was a lot of fun being in the Clark Girswold Family Vehicle and spending an evening together in true Griswold fashion!
