" TEDDY!" i screamed " family meeting now!" " okay i will be down in a minute", she yelled back. next was the twins lucy and lulu. they are five. for some reason they get the biggest room. i still have not figured that out. and im a genius at math. "lucy, lulu get in the living room. family meeting," i said.

first to get his attention i had to turn off the fan. then i just reach in his crib and take him out. and just carry him downstairs.
"okay so what are you guys telling us, that is so important you just had to call a family meeting", teddy said rudely.
"well we're going on vacation," dad replied.
"where to?" i asked anxiously.
" to salt lake city,"said mom.
" for how long?" lulu asked.
" wait why are we going to salt lake we've been there before. that's not really a vacation we've been there before."
" well we'll be going to to general con ference while we're there, mom aswered.
"NOOOOOO!!" we all screamed in unison.
