iPhone Catch-Up

Dear friends,

After a year long vacation of no blogging...I figured out how to add more news from my iPhone. I think my stories may increase even more once I figure out how to add pictures too. Let me see if I can add one from my phone...

Well, I have a new grandson (who's almost a year old). He lives in Texas with his family (my eldest)--we see lots of pictures & snapchat.
We are building a new house and hope to be in by Thanksgiving! Lots of details on that story coming up. Maybe Chabs can help me post pictures.
Okay, so...I have a lot to catch up on here. Also, Kath, if you're reading this...I can't read your blog. It was a one-time only access:(

More news soon!!

Dear Friends,

I was on-line today changing the background on my might have noticed, and I decided to try and update my news here.

I helped my Aunt Cheryl with flowers at the State Fair. She told me to be there at six am. So I crawled out of bed, got myself downtown...then promptly got lost. I figured if I crossed back under the free-way I'd be kinda close to the fair. It was pitch black out and I found my way to 10th and North Temple. Nothing, I could not see anything resembling a fair. So, I stopped and asked the 7-11 cashier dude. He barely spoke English and played dumb. Arrrrr! My last sane moment, I called my hubby and bawled my eyes out, "I don't know where I am and I can't find the fair-grounds!!". He calmed me down, looked at a map and said, "Go down the street and turn left". Simple as that...and I was in THE parking lot. Hallelujah!!! I was ready to kiss the ground. I pulled up to the guard and told him I needed to help at the flower building. He asked if I knew where it was...and I said "Over there" randomly pointing down the street. He wasn't buying it and told me to wait in the parking lot. So much for being on time:( I called my Aunt and she didn't pick up, so I decided to go stand by the security dude and stare him down. He finally got annoyed and let me walk in. I wandered all over tarnation until I saw a little old man carrying flowers into a building. BINGO! The rest is history. I'll add pictures when I figure out how to add them with my iPhone. It was a long day:)

Our elder will be home in nine more Sundays! We are SO excited and can hardly wait to see the big changes in his life. 

I celebrated my 50th B-day a couple weeks ago. My hubby and kids decorated the house with all kinds of signs inside and out. They had lawn signs and a pinata hanging above the garage door. So very kind of them to share the big news with the neighbors. I had a pretty fun day...running around town cashing in on all my FREE lunches (Gardner Village) and iHop offered me pancakes:) We had sushi for dinner at Blue Fish...the Ecstasy-Roll is to die for. Food food food<3 div="">

My friend, Mary and I have been called to teach in Primary...and I LOVE IT!!! Totally the easiest job out there:) The little 4-5 year olds are adorable and I think Mary is hilarious. She cracks me up.

Okay- time to wrap this up. Maybe if you're good...I'll write some more later. Would you like that? See you soon people. Peace out!

Connect3d to the World


Remember how I told you about getting a new cell phone for my anniversary? It's an IPhone 4...and I love it! I'm joining the 21st Century as I learn how to add "Apps" to my phone. Right now my favorite app is called myfitnesspal. I can scan in the bar-codes from food I eat all day or type in the name and it comes right up. I'm only five foot tall and so my calorie count is low to help my get back in shape. I can add the exercise too...and there's another app for that: mapmywalk. It's like a GPS system that shows how many miles I've walked and how many calories I've burned too. I can listen to my favorite music on Pandora...Donny Osmond, Duffy, Karen Carpenter. I can check my email, this blog, and even facebook:D I boogie like it's 1979 and the disco ball is flashing. Madonna is my go-to station for moving FAST.

Just heard from my son in the Philippines. Gotta go post his pictures! his letters.

More news soon! Till then, listen to Pandora people and put on your dancing shoes.

Ward Christmas Breakfast

My ward pulled together to feed 200 people this morning! I feel so grateful for their hard work.
Our wonderful bishop conducted the Christmas Breakfast

I didn't expect too many folks to WANT to eat at 9 am this morning-BOY! was I wrong:D

Loved the sweet Santa that spent volunteer time with our children.

I am in total awe of the service rendered during the Christmas season. Thank you WS 2nd Ward. You give so much every time! Merry Christmas sweet neighbors.
