S.S. Relief & Crazy ladies!!!!

The S.S. Relief may have been the most wonderful thing someone has thought of in a very long time. While the family was on the lake gazing at the green mossy water Hailee pointed out the bathrooms. Brynne was super excited that the bathrooms were on a dock floating in the middle of the lake. Of course Brynne had to try it out because of all her stomach problems. Then Jay thought he’d better check it out too. Makaela and Hailee were next and certainly Aubri needed to try because we wouldn’t want to leave her out. The family’s S.S. Relief stop was taking up so much time that Mark decided what the heck he might as well too. I’m sure Vicki would have tried out the floating toilets but she was home babysitting the wonderful Granddogs. After everyone was as good as new we decided to venture out and around the lake again. It wasn’t long before everyone looked around at each other and agreed to go home.
Just before pulling the boat out of the water two women started yelling at each other. Hailee, Jay and Brynne stared with wide eyes as they heard curse words thrown back and forth. They couldn’t believe two grown women could act this way and especially in front of children (Mark was getting the truck or he would have thought that too). After seeing crazy women, the children of Vicki Wisniewski tried to imagine their mother acting this way. Mmmm…they thought….would our mother act like that? They thought and thought and though…because maybe just maybe Vicki could get as out raged as those two women but they concluded that is just wasn’t possible. Their mother has only ever put them on string cheese restriction and M&M restriction because they were throwing them at each other. The children all agreed…Thank Goodness for a mother like the one they have.

Old Letters reread...

It’s been some time since Jay has been home from his mission.
Today I (Brynne) was looking through old emails at work and I have tons from Jay while he was on his mission. So I’m taking a few bits and pieces because it made me laugh –
Hope you don’t mind Jay Jay! – I have tons more this is just from the first 8 months or so.
* It was really sad seeing the America drift away behind us. Me and Elder Hansen almost cried. It was hard. Korea is definitely huge!!!!!!!!
*I also ate pig skin.
*I also drew pictures on the board to show them stuff and acted out a lot of words. It was so funny but we communicated some how.
*I went up to the old man and he waived his hands in the air and started yelling "I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know" but it was in Korean.
*We went to a Korean Folk Village! I got on the KOREAN NEWS! Isn't that sweet. I got first place in a contest. We had to cut this stuff called duck. It is like wax. It is a very traditional food. Like 50 Americans were in it. I totally cut my finger and was bleeding everywhere. It was really funny. I think they felt bad for me because I got first place. I cut them really good though.
*Do I really look tired in all my pictures? Cuz I am. My brain just wants to explode half the time. lol. Korean turns your brain upside down and backwards. It hurts.
*There is a ton of kids around me right now trying to read this letter but they don't know how. It's really funny. They think I'm from a different world. It's funny, everyone I walk by on the streets says how tall I am. I'm glad I finally know when they say that. It's funny!
*Sorry I lost all of my funniness being on a mission. I am totally not funny anymore. LoL. But I'm not weird. I don't think I've changed at all. I might be a little emotionally unstable because kids point and laugh at me all day and the look a foreigner. lol. Just kidding.
*The church is true for sure. I defiantly would be out here in miditville if it wasn't true.
*Geeze, no man! who am I? Grandpa curly.
*My companion is funny, last night he talked in his sleep. He yelled "I will eat well" in Korean. It was hilarious. We say that in Korea before we eat.
*we were just leaving the other missionaries and we were running to get into the subway. He got it and then the doors closed with me on the outside. So it left and I was there like UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.. So I got on and then got off at the next stop but he wasn't there so I just waited and finally he came.
*I totally cut my hair pro and then in like two seconds my companion jacked it up trying to trim around the ear. I didn't know it was possible to be that ____!
*So I totally go to go to North KOREA! INTENSE!!!!!!! It was way awesome. It was way crazy how the North Koreans were like staring at us with binoculars and stuff. It was rad. We are definitely going if you come to Korea! You would think it's cool. It felt like Disneyland but when I thought about it, I was like, huh, I guess this is kind of dangerous.

I've been tagged!!!!

I'm it! I'm it! Debbie tagged me (Brynne) ! I love questions and things to keep me busy so this makes me so happy…yippee! Being tagged is fun! Well unless it says you get bad luck for not doing it – cause I don’t believe in those.

Okay, so I am supposed to list six words that describe my life. It’s hard to pick six words that describe your life…summing it up in six words is harder then you think. But here goes nothing…

1. Fortunate
2. Family
3. Faithful
4. Splendid
5. Meaningful
6. Organized

So now the second part of the tag is to tag five others. The following people have been duly warned!!

Hailee – Okay lady let’s hear it!
Julie – You are the reason I started a blog…and I love you!
Peel Ordeel - Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with.
Lacey - I’m sure you have some good ones, since your son is so adorable.
Justin – Can’t wait to see yours! Now it’s your turn!

Mark & Vicki

Boy oh boy...this couple is still in love after all these years. Vicki just got a new bike and her and Mark like to ride on romantic journeys at the beach. They are happy to have all the kids on their own and informed the children they are not to move back! They would like more Grandchildren (if Cory and Jay would just give in!) and the girls are hoping sometime in the near future. Mark & Vicki love watching their shows, love going to the movie picture show (as Mark would say) and taking trips...such as Cabo, Mammoth and the beach.

They are very proud of the their children...especially Brynne and Hailee! (Sorry Jay...wirtten by Brynne & Hailee)

The Griffith Fam!

The girls have grown so much! Aubri's new bestfriend is Lola and will be two in August. Makaela enjoys going to MyGym and has been come quite the gymnist. Josh and Hailee enjoy playing darts, telling stupid jokes only they get and watching UFC...oh yeah and playing with their kids - when Aubri is not crabby!

Jay and Nicole

We have been married for almost a year now!!!! Jay is working on becoming a fire fighter and Nicole is working full time as a legal secretary, she will start school in the fall. We enjoy UFC, hanging out at Brynne's and mooching off our paretns (just for food). We hope for kids in the future, Nicole wants them sooner then Jay!

Lola Leila

There is a new addition to our Family! The Anderson's have added their loving child Lola Leila! She is 1.87 pounds, has her dad's hair and her mom's green eyes. This little baby had a tough few weeks being in and out of the hospital - getting iv's, shots and medication. She is now eating on her own and waking everyone up at 4am to paly.
