See .... I do things ....

Usually I feel like most of what I do isn't really blog worthy. Nobody cares about my short drive to work or where I went to lunch or what my hair looks like or whether or not I was compliant with the dress code at work and how my sink at home has dishes in it that probably won't get done tonight ... I certainly don't want to write about those things, except when I have a really awesome hair day. But I actually have some hobbies and one thing that I like to do when I have the time, and the material, and the stars align just right is to make baby things. Nothing big, just fluffy little tidbits that are tokens of my love. So .... My friend, whom we shall call T had cute little twin boys a few months back and I actually finished some of the things that I set out to do. Que milagro indeed. T sent me a picture of her little boys and their lovies/burpees/thingies and I thought that I should show the world that I do more than wake up, teach seminary, work, eat, work, go home, eat, sleep, start over and if it's the weekend there is probably (hopefully) some laundry action in there. So here is the proof that sometimes I get some sewing done.

Yay! Hooray for Friends

I figured that it was about time to put something new up on the blog page. This is a pic of the J-man and myself with some good friends of ours. On the left you have Tony and Val and on the right we have the newlyweds, Austin and Desee. It was good to spend an evening together and meet Desee. Nothing like a bit o' hanging out with friends. J-man and I are so blessed by the friends we have in our lives.

I just wanted to let everyone who checks my little page here in on the news. Early this morning (tues) my dad passed away at home. My family is so grateful for all your prayers and support, all the kind words and thoughts and expressions of love. I can't say thank you enough for that and ask that you continue to keep my family in your prayers. Thanks again - your support means the world to me.

And so It Begins ... Again

So Seminary began again for me today and I don't know what was going on. I was totally afraid that I would be late because I am all off schedule from my parents being down here for the last week(which was awesome and exhausting) and didn't think I would be awake but, I was fine. But dang! Those kids were all over the place. Talking out of turn, random comments, funky questions that didn't really deal with the lesson. And Hannah has such a great story. And the random text msg, me having to be the bad guy(which I don't usually mind but seemed tedious today) and just all around shenanigans. Send Help .. fast I might not make it through the week. And I had to hold them late... Hey man - a deal's a deal! Maybe I should invite parents to come and hang out with us. So that's all. I bet that tomorrow will be better ... maybe.

What is up with teenagers?

PIF who rah

ya know.... the first time I saw one of these on another blog I thought it looked like so much fun. And here I am a winner! Who would have thunk! So this is what I am going to do... I hereby promise to send fun- homemade goodness (well, at least partially homemade) to three random posters on my blog. I will give myself a time limit of 6 months. Does that sound extreme? Well, It's not if you know me. Plus I am still working on a baby blanket from last spring for a baby born last fall. But the pirate blanket is pretty cool, if I do say so myself. So I will taylor the gift to fit you (no tutu's for boys, no cookies for diabetics) If you will give your word of honor that you will spread the love and warm feelings by doing a Pay if Forward of your own. Good Luck! Both of you who read this! Ha Ha
