A New Home!!!!

It is a Beautiful, Wonderful day in Utah! The quilts are going to a new home, a good home!

They will be loved and hugged and cherished! The struggle and curse words you uttered as you were making them will never be known to the child who is loving it! Who ever they are, where ever they are, what ever their circumstances are, we may never know.

Total 30 completed Quilts!

THANKS to those who donated fabric, cut squares and gave completed quilts!

Party! Party! Party!

I was wondering if we could spread the Christmas parties through out the year? I am not ungrateful for the Great opportunities to get together and enjoy each others company, but how much can a girl eat?

Ward Party! This was at my home ward. Lasagna dinner and Mac & cheese for the kids, someone was thinking on that one!

I don't have a picture of my singles ward party, it was at the Spaghetti Factory! Yum!

Rickenbakers at the Ogden Airport! I would give this 5 stars! I had the best chicken pasta! Loved it! Crave it!

The whole group!

The Missionary Moms! Ha Ha - The boys are all home, so we decided to treat them to a dinner with us! The boys think it is kinda weird we are friends! I think they think we talk about them .

No, we have other really important stuff to talk about!

Yes, they are cute boys and GOOD friends! The second one from the left is visiting Mitch from Russia! The best part of the whole night was when they said Happy Birthday to Miriam in the language they spoke on their missions! It was also finals week, and all them were a little stressed! We missed Chris and his parents, he had 3 finals the next morning!

This is the mild crazy picture of them!

Before we went to the Christmas Concert of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, we ate the Roof! The buffet is the best, and yes we started with the deserts!

We still have a few more parties, and I am rolling myself to them! No wonder every ones New Years Resolution is to Diet!

Red Berries and Bulbs!

I have a problem! I love red berries! I have way to many Christmas things that are made of red berries! When I am in a store - I am drawn to them and have to make myself not buy any more! I have posted a few, not all of the them, but you'll get the idea!

Bad picture, I know, but yes there are red berry wreaths hanging on my windows!

Wrapped around by candles!

Hanging on my wall, and sitting on my table!

Hanging on my chairs!
I decided to branch out a little and use something other than red berries. Bulbs!
I bought this stryofoam tree from JoAnns with my 40% off coupon and the shatter proof blulbs at Hobby Lobby for $5.00. I already had the gold paint, and the glitter paint. I hot glued them on and I love it! It is not red and it is not berries!
Yes, I have another wreath, with red berries on the fireplace!

This picture is here, because I don't know how to delete it, without deleting the whole post!
Ha Ha - Erin will help me later!

Is it a boy or girl? Whatever it is, it will be beautiful!

This joyous picture of Morgan describes how we all felt hearing the news!

Michael T. Ringwood of the First Quorum of the Seventy, made a surprise visit to University 1st Stake on Sunday! He attended another wards Sacrament, then came to the our ward for Sunday School and Relief Society & Priesthood!

For 2 hours he had a captivated audience as he taught a packed Relief Society room of college singles. He answered their questions and addressed their concerns!

I was spiritually fed!

There were so MANY things I felt, but am only going to post about one thing I felt strongly about!

I have 4 children , 2 son-in-laws and 2 1/2 grandchildren! They are the most important things to me! I am so grateful what good kids they are!

I am not to worried about this crazy world we live in, because it is a wonderful time to be alive!

After saying that, I want my kids and grand kids to have a Happy, Productive life! Now, life happens, and bad things happen to good people, just by living!

Elder Ringwood talked about how we can immunize or innoculate our families against the wiles of the world by simple things! Prayer, scriptures and Family Home Evening!

We are so concerned about their physical well being, and make sure they are fed, clothed and immunized against disease.

So to immunize them against the things that can make them so unhappy, addictions, in what ever form it may be! Make sure they are fed, clothed and immunized by these simple spiritual things!

(At any age we can physical & Spiritually ail - so this is for all ages!)

This is how we babysit! He is watching a movie! How innocent and sweet - He needs his immunizations!

He also talked about how unfairly we judge each other! I won't judge you if you don't judge me!
