Christina Roselle Olsen

We just had a new baby! I can't believe she is over a week old now. This one was hard for me cause I did not get to go to the birth. All my daughter-in-laws (both) know they can have babies without me but I have been keeping it a secret from my daughters. Now they know they can do it without me too. I couldn't go because I woke up that Friday very sick, coughing and with a fever. It was sad for me but another great birth for Eve. I'll let her tell you about it on her blog. This is her first girl and she is sooooo cute!! She is a good baby so far too. I'll put some pictures here for you. She looks like Tripp to me, but some people think she looks like Erick. Both the boys think she is great. All in all we are pretty happy with the way everything turned out.

Another One

I have another cutie patootie. This one is Michael and Velvet's newest. He came in June and I am visiting him, his parents and his sister in Salt Lake. I am having fun. He is a happy baby and is sleeping good. He is so cute as you see!!
We have been to the Copper Mine and to lots and lots of stores!! Velvet is great at finding bargains!! Her Mom is too. My Bekah and her Ben have been here with me but left yesterday for Idaho.

I will go there next Thursday to see her new house and family for a week. Ben is really growing and altho he is crawling and not walking he appears to be as big as Karli. They have fun together anyway.

The Last Days

I was looking at my last blog....can't believe it was Nov 08! I've wanted to write but just never when I was at the computer. Anyway these last days at the Temple are so weird. Yesterday was a record setting day of work there. Someone compared it to the 10 virgins parable. That is so true. There are so many people trying to do so much work it makes you think where have you been over the years? Of course a lot of them have been there a lot and they know they are going to miss going over the next year and a half. It is going to be hard to get to the other closest temples not just because they are far away (and they are) but also because they are already full of their own people and it's going to be hard for them to have extra room for all of us. Anyway there is such an air of desperation that I compare it to being prepared or maybe not being prepared. It really needs to be done little by little starting now rather than trying to do it all right before it's needed, whatever it is. Is that Procrastination? I need to do a study on that and see what I am putting off in my life! I really admire you people that blog a lot. I'm going to try to do better. That's if I have anything worth saying. I did have a great Easter this year and you can see my beautiful picture of ALL my kids if you go to my facebook! OK the next blog is going to be about my new grandbaby Jack and the birthday of my great grandbaby Damion!

Another Cute Baby

Here I am again and so soon too! This time it is Rachel and her new baby. He is Thomas Jennings Nutter. He was born yesterday in Austell Georgia. Yes I just got back from Idaho Saturday and Rachel had him on Monday. What a welcome home! He is doing great,a great eater! He was 7 lbs. 3 ozs. and 19 inches long. We are having some great fun, well for me anyway, Rachel is sort of down. But she will bounce back fast, she is already doing better. Here are some pictures of him, Proud Grandma!

New Baby!!!

So I am in Idaho.  The best part is I have a new grandbaby!  Sweet little Ben.  He is doing all the little things that babies do.  Eating a lot, sleeping except when his parents want to, and messing up a lot of diapers!  I am so incredibly glad to be here.  It is so awesome to see the fist days of this special boys life.  I love it!!!

I am here at Rachel's house watching Sarah and Erick while Eve and Rachel are shopping for paint. Eve gave an Ariel mural on Sarah's wall to her for her birthday. Also she is going to paint a mechanics garage scene on Thomas' wall. Anyway they are gone to get paint for those projects. Watch Eve's blog for the reports and pictures as it goes along. She posts way better than I do. The kids are doing pretty well, not fighting much and not destroying anything at the moment. I am just having to listen to every version of Beat It known to man. That is Sarah's all time favorite song! She mostly likes Michael Jackson's version. We'll see if I start beating stuff and we'll know what kind of influence the song has over people! I got Erick some orange jack o lantern crocs and Sarah some green ghost crocs. They are so cute, Sarah's are glow in the dark! I would take some pictures but I don't know how to get them from my phone to Rachel's computer. I'll take them anyhow and put them on here when I get home. This post makes me feel less guilty for not posting more often even if I don't have much to say!

I'm Back!!!

Finally I can type on the computer without pain. Things have been really strange. Ever since July the 5th. Isn't it weird that your body could do something so crazy to you without you doing anything to deserve it. Well not much anyway. I was at Sam and LaShun's and all I did was sleep on the couch, without a pillow but it had fluffy ends!? Anyway they tried to give me a bed and a pillow but I didn't see the need. After the second night I woke up with a horrible pain in my neck. It didn't stop there and as the day went by the pain went down across my shoulder and then my elbow and sometimes to my hand. My left index finger is still a little numb. I left Sam's on the 7th. I had not been able to lay down for the rest of the time I was there and with so little sleep I was a crazy person! When I got home I went to the doctor (not much help there). Also to the chiropractor everyday for a long time. I had some really bad times with it. Eve thought I had lost my mind and reverted to being a whining baby. Maybe so but it hurt more than having 5 children with natural childbirth...go figure. I didn't really analyze it cause I was in PAIN! I could not sit at the computer without hurting a lot. I think because the monitor is raised high. I guess my head had to tilt up too much for my neck. I am so much better. It still hurts but I can handle it. Guess it's called getting OLD, I don't like it!! My Mama didn't tell me it would be like this! Don't know what picture to put here. I'll think about it!
I have managed to read "Breaking Dawn". It was soooo good. I'll try to be back sooner.
