YW Manual 1, Lesson 4 handout

Seeking the Companionship of the Holy Ghost

man 1, lesson 4

Here are my handouts for tomorrow's lesson. It may be a little late for other people, but still cool I hope. I found some GORGEOUS ones on sugardoodle, but I am out of colored ink, so they are VERY similar to the ones on there. I hope the creators don't mind.

Check it out!!!


Lenka!! part 2

So Rachel and I went to the End Zone concert in the morning. It was so fun! She sang "Trouble" and "The Show" and was very pleasant and adorable. While we were there, we entered to win tickets to the concert that night and I won!!


The concert was so superdilly much fun!!!!! The most fun concert I've ever been to and Roger's first concert. It was at Kilby Court, so a tiny venue, but I totally loved it that way. We were SO close to the stage! Rachel and her two sisters, Sarah and Rebecca, came too. I'm so glad! The whole day was  fun. Here are some pics.

This is how close we were!



Isn't my hubby hot?!?!


Speaking of hot- John, the guitarist....

More of Lenka



Anyway- so I had a blast yesterday. Back to real life today!!

I get to go see Lenka at the End Zone tomorrow!! For those of you unfamiliar with Lenka, watch THIS. I guarantee you'll be smiling by the end!!!

So, I was picking up a freecycle today and on the way home I get this phone call. It's Grant Ruby from the end and he was inviting me to the End Zone tomorrow. IT was ALLLLL I could do to pay attention to the speed limits and stop signs on my way home to go tell Roger!!

I'll report back soon!!!

PB and J Cookies

I told Xander the other day that we'd make cookies. I asked him what kind he wanted to make. He said Peanut Butter and Jam. Luckily, I have a magaazine from Rachael Ray that I remembered seeing a recipe for just that. I found it here: http://food.yahoo.com/recipes/rachael-ray/113034/penny-s-pb-j-cookies for all of you. It's the same recipe. I decided to test my patience level and let Xander do it as by himself as he could. I let him measure, pour, all that stuff. But first he wrote down the "recipe"

If you're wondering how they tasted, Xander gives it....


They are for reals yummy!

Thank you!

Thank you so much for all your comments. I'm actually starting to love myself a little more every day. Friends like y'all help a ton!!

I can't wait to show you new pics, but I don't want to post them till I finish a few things. I'm working on 5 hats, a cactus, just finished another blanket (a teeny tiny white one), and a few scarves.  I'll also be posting some shots from some recent photo shoots! Yay!

Voting for which Holiday to work on ends on Friday:
Independence Day

It's all about me

My mom would cringe at this post because it is all about me. Recently I've had a few conversations that have really shaken me up. They've questioned who I am, what makes me the way I am, and had me questioning my own worth. So I've taken it upon myself to define who I am. That way, if there is something you don't like, at least you know up front.

First off, I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father. He loves me, and I love Him.  My favorite color is orange. I'm hyper. I'm high strung. I'm easily excitable. I want to be respected. I want people to like me. I love making a difference in other people's lives. I like to be of service. I like to be needed. I love green peppers. I don't like being called names, even in joking (except nerd, geek, and -only when I'm pregnant- fatso). I'm kind. I'm creative. I need to be validated. I'm dependable. I'm willing to try new things, even if they scare the crap out of me. I have bizarre quirks. I love hamburgers. I go through phases. I talk a ton. I don't like slow movies. I love to laugh. People underestimate me. I am good at crocheting. I wish I could paint really well. I am not professional. I am usually positive. I love cuddling with my kids. Getting compliments makes my day. I like attention, but don't puposefully (or at least consciously)P create it. I absolutely hate confrontation. I have a strong testimony of my Savior's love for me. I am not a good singer, but I still belt out my favorite songs. I try to be honest with myself. I like to jump in with both feet, but get easily frustrated. I don't particularly like soda. I want to take cooking classes. I have lots of really great ideas, but no means to bring them about. Most of all, I know who I am. I know where I came from. And I know where I'm going (and that my family will always be with me).

Here is a page I did tonight. The words are identical the ones here on my blog.

Update with Pictures


Blanket for a friend's project


16 more days till season 5!!

I made these for my friend Allison. Had so much fun making them that I might make more.

Made a set of 3- this one, a yellow, and a white- for a wedding gift. Still struggling with edges, as you can see.

Me in my finished Gryffindor scarf with my super handsome oldest son.

Now I need to figure out which ornaments I have yet to post.
