Burgess Family of three...for now

A look into what we ordinarily do...sometimes not that ordinary.

Special Day for The Burgess Family.

Lina's blessing day finally arrived! Courtesy of Armando's mom's seamstress skills, she was dressed in a gorgeous little white dress that mirrored my wedding dress almost exactly. With a lot of family members and close friends to join us, we enjoyed a brief moment set aside just for Lina. As the circle of worthy priesthood holders encircled her, Clint gave her a perfect blessing. The Spirit was present.

Our luncheon turned out to be quite a hectic get together. I don't think we realized how big our family has gotten. We counted....we managed 50 people in our house today! Maximum capacity for our house is probably closer to half of that.

It was a special day in which gratitude filled our hearts for so many blessings...a perfect daughter, an eternal family, friends and family who love and support us, and the gospel.

What else could we ask for?

Things can always get worse...

I was hesitant to even have the thought that things couldn't get much worse because I knew that as soon as I did they would.....

Despite my efforts they did.

My MIL got super sick and couldn't watch Lina today.

Sooooo grateful for a mom who had to pull all sorts of strings to stay home with Lina this morning.

Eternally grateful for a good friend like Tawnya who is willing to watch her in the afternoon, despite having a toddler on her hands too.

Still trying to count my blessings.

Why Now???!!

Saturday we got back from a nice relaxing weekend trip with friends up in Strawberry, went to dinner at my MIL's house, got home to an extremely warm house.........Yup! Our AC broke! It was 9:00 pm so we called our home warranty company and they sent through a work order for someone to come look at it Monday morning!

Chain of Events that followed that prove that life can always get a little more complicated than
you think:

  • Saturday night we toted our baby, dog, and ourselves over to spend the night at my mom's house.
  • Sunday night we all spent the night at my MIL's.
  • Monday I headed off to my first day back at work, leaving Lina and Scooter with my MIL.
  • AC guy diagnosed the problem.....bad compressor.....can't get the part until Tuesday.
  • Monday night spent the night at my MIL's.
  • Tuesday morning get a call from AC guy to let us know they can't get the part yet.
  • Tuesday morning had Candi meet Clint to take Lina back to my parent's house since our house is too hot for them.
  • Headed off to work..........hoping and praying that they will fix it today!!!

I really miss my bed! I've been living out of a duffle bag since Thursday!!!
