Vacuum Challenge

It's fun having clean freak Shellie staying with us... if she gets bored, watch out!!!

She was making fun of us for having a vacuum with a bag in it! She said it's super old... I think we may have bought it when we bought our last house about 9 years ago! Just because she's a freak and buys a new vacuum every couple of years!!! So, Ryan and Shellie decided to compare our old Hoover to her Shark.

Ryan vacuumed Brenner's and Joren's room with our vacuum.
Then Shellie vacuumed over the room with her Shark.
If you look in the garbage you will see all of the lint and dead skin cells that our vacuum did not pick up! So, basically our vacuum seems to get the stuff on the surface that you can see, but Shellie's shark digs down deep and gets the gunk.... to think of 2 years worth of dead skin cells:)
So, maybe some day I'll get a new vacuum. But for now, I'll just have Shellie vacuum my whole house with her vacuum, then I can wait two more years for all the dead skin to accumulate and then I'll buy a new vacuum... and for the record, I'm sure my vacuum was cheap in the first place.

Wyoming.... here they come!!!

As I'm sure you've all heard, Lucas got a job in Wyoming... Rock Springs! I have to say a couple of things about my little brother and his amazing wife! First, I am so proud of them. He lost his job and immediately went looking for a new job. He was willing to move out of state.... a lot of people aren't willing to do that. He found a job that he loves. It pays well and Shellie will be able to stay home with Legz and get a part time job. Hopefully they will be able to have another baby soon:). Lucas has been working for a few weeks now. But they had to be out of their house down here this week. So, this weekend, Ryan and I helped them move. This is their cute new apartment. With a little of Shellie's touch, it will be super cute and fun for them.

Legz didn't want to be in the picture, but then changed her mind.
I have been crying all weekend! This will be such a great experience for them and a new adventure. But I am going to miss them soooooo much! They are only 3 hours away and I know we'll see them often, but it was so hard to see them pack up their home that they love and move to a strange place. Shellie is my best friend and Legacy is just one of my kids. Joren and Legacy area best friends and it will be so hard for them to not see each other as much. And I have always felt like a mom to Lucas, so it will be hard to not see them as much. But I know we'll stay in touch and we'll visit them as often as we can... and I'm sure they'll be down often because there isn't even a Target in Rock Springs.

Shellie is staying with us for a couple of weeks while she trains the new girl at work then she's vacationing in St. George before she heads up to live with Lucas. Wish them luck in their new adventures!!!

PS... just had to include this pic of the boys all cuddled up in bed together. We stayed in a hotel last night and I actually ended up in bed with all 3 of them while Ryan got the whole other bed to himself... I'm not sure how we all fit in this one bed!
