Grandpa Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days..

My Grand Dad Is still in Love with My Grandma...You see I come From a Long Line of Love...

My Grandpa is one of the Greatest Man I have had the pleasure to know and have been so blessed to have him as My Papa :) Growing up I had 2 Grandpas but Grandpa C. Has been the Grandpa that has taken that role and ran with it:) He has been the grandpa that I have been blessed to really have a realationship with. He has always been there and growing up he always asked me what was up in my life and teased me and always told me he loved me and always had a hug and a kiss for me:) one of my favorite stories about him is the time when he kicked the trash out of a guy who lets just say was a pervert and Grandpa protects the girls in his life :)

But Papa isn't feeling well and is in alot of pain and I don't like when my loved ones are in pain. I wish I could take his pain away. but I know that Heavenly Father is Watching over him and that he Hears our Prayers and that no matter what happens everything is going to be ok because Families are Forever:)

Christmas is in the Air!

Ok so I love this time of year! Every year since this song came out I remember my Mom loved it! she always would try to tape it so she could listen to it anytime finally we were able to get the cd and find out who sang it and now its one of my favorites i don't know if its because of the song or because of the memories that come with it. I love my Mom! She is so wonderful and always made Christmas growing up the best! Here's the lyrics to the song by Amy Grant :)
Children carry through the streets
A brightly painted star
.Angels gather round the hearth,Strumming on guitars.
Men of great renown and faithSay prayers on boulevards.
It's the night before christmas.
But you don't have to be an angel To sing harmony.
You don't have to be a childTo love the mystery.
And you don't have to be a wise man On bended knee.
The heart of this christmas is in you and me
If your heart's been longing,You've been afraid to try,Sorrow's kept you company,
And the dance has passed by,
I'll lift you up and blaze with you
Across the moonlit sky
On the night before christmas.
'cause you don't have to be an angel To sing harmony.
You don't have to be a child To love the mystery.
And you don't have to be a wise manOn bended knee.
The heart of this christmas is in you and me.The heart of this christmas is in you and me.

All the Things you can Think...

Well we just Celebrated Braden and Heathers wedding! She looked amazing! it was tons of fun and they tried to be sneeky and hide their new XB and told us that they were taking Bradens truck...well after the ceromony i followed their XB and they parked it in a neighbors garage across the street from the reception! So the truck got Bradenized and the XB got classic wedding car treatment. Braden decorated our car, Jarmon and Kelseys,and Jenna and Kalob's....and when he decorates he destroys lol so we were all so happy to get even...and they ran out to their truck and lance was all payback braden! and Heather was all no! and laughed and ran across the street where the garage door came up and low and behold her "no one touches my new car!" was touched! much to her surprise! haha i told her thats what happens when we follow the car from the wedding!! it was Hilarious! we are so happy for them!!

So this week I got an MRI done on my thoracic spine and i got the results back and to no surprise I have 2 bulge discs. So no wonder i still am having pain and soreness. its no fun! i got an estim. on my car $2252 to fix it. It stinks to be in car accidents! i couldn't help clean up the reception on friday night cause my back and shoulder were so sore! anyways everyone drive safe and watch out for the other vehicals on the road.....

I love Family Reunions! plus every time I hang out with Lances family I am reminded just how blessed I am so have such wonderful In Laws! I consider them my own! We were thinking of going back up for the forth since Holbrook has a great 4th of July Celebration but we decided to stay in town and I forgot to get my camera out for the 4th! I am the worse at that! we celebrated the 4th at our casa and it was loads of fun! Friends and Family came over and we played games and ate yummy food and watched the fireworks while being eaten alive my the mesquites! and got our friends addicted to Nerts which is one of my favorite games of all time!! I think mainly because I played it when I was so young with cousins and family in Young and i have such great memories with it that I can't help but love it! and I plan to bring cards for the Johnston reunion in 2 weeks...yeah its the 3rd and last reunion of the summer :( I am way excited for it! next week I get to take a Road Trip with my Madre and we are going to Cali. for my dear sweet amazing Cousin Lishele's wedding!! yay!

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome...

Ok so Lance and I have been trying to have a baby since feb '08 and I missed my period and was so excited! I then took a HPT and it read NEG. I then waited a month after my missed period and took another HPT and still NEG i finally went to the drs office where they did 2 blood test and they came back NEG. I then have kept Walgreens in business solely on HPT's lol so I have had Dr appoinments after Dr Appoinments and Blood Tests and Today I finally was given Answers! I haven't had a period since March 17th and its now May 27th and Aunt Flow still has yet to come...well she won't be coming for awhile :( I had an ultrasound done today in which I was praying they would find a little peanut however all there was to find was dozens and dozens of Cysts in both ovaries! The tech then explained that it looks like i have Polycystic cysts which she explained that basicly most women have 2 or 3 cysts i have dozens..also when the egg usally gets released my body doesn't it instead grows bigger and splits into multiple cysts and cause me to miss periods. So I then Talked to the NP Lauren and she gave me the results of my blood work and told me that my testonstone levels were high and that the ultrasound confirmed the polycystic cysts and that my pregestrene levels were low and that my fasting insulin was on the high side. Diabetes ru nin my family like crazy! My Grandmas twin died of comlications with Diabetes and my grandpa on my moms side has diabetes along with an aunt and an uncle. She said with polycystic ovary syndrome it can cause diabetes so she perscribed me Metformin because she said that helps the insulin levels and helps to get my period also. My Grandpa was on that medication before and my aunt said it wasn't very good for him. I am a little worried about taking it. my grandmother has had Polycystic cysts before and she was able to get rid of them naturally. I would like to do what she did and if that doens't work then go on Medications I am not a fan of Medications at all! and my body is not use to those either! I found a website that has tons of natural ways its my mom gave me this website and i'm excited to read more and see what i can do to get rid of this. Its frusterating to me because i have always tried to eat healthy and excerize and do the right things and i try to not worry about it cause that doesn't help at all. So for all those who are wondering if the McGees are prego the answer is NO. As much as I know thats a question everyone asks people who are LDS and have been married as long as me and Lance have been but believe me when I am Pregnant I will shout it out to the whole world! until then those who have babies hold them a little longer tonight for all the women who haven't gotten there Miracle yet. love to you all

My Boy is Growing Up!!!

I Remember it well it was April 2, 2001 on a Monday night in Mesa Luthern hospital when my Brother Duston came out to announce he was the proud father of a Baby BOY! and I was the Proud new aunt to Clayton Lynne Johnston! He had tons of dark brown hair and was the cutest little baby boy ever! and he was my 1st Nephew!!! well the dark hair didn't last long now he his blonde and blue eyed! and just celebrated his 8th birthday! I can still remember telling him he needed to stop growing! and he said no brittany i want to learn 2nd grade Math. and my cousin who is his age said she would stay the way she is and asked how to stop growing. Clayton replied " Jenny you stop getting pinches on your birthday!" ( a pinch to grow an inch) I laughed so hard! He is such a sweetheart! He is such a great kid! Last saturday Clayton got Baptized! I can't believe he is old enough to be baptized! I left my camera at my parents house so i will post pictures later! I didn't think I would cry but when I saw Duston and Clayton enter the font I just couldn't help my eyes they just had to get all watery. I'm such a baby. but this was my first nephew he holds a special place in my heart as do all my niece and nephews do! It was so neat to see him growing up and in his cute suit! He is going to do great things in this life! I love him so much and am so grateful to have him in my family and be his aunt! He pretty much rocks my socks! Congrats to Clayton!
