Welcome Spring...under the snow

Daughter V-2 more months of Senior Year!

I looked out this morning and thought "What a beautiful sunrise!" I stepped out into 26 degrees of bone chilling cold! We have a couple inches of snow on the ground, covering all my pretty Spring bulbs as they bloom their little hearts out. Oh well, there's always next years blooms.

My machine class ended up being cancelled, so I stayed home and cleaned my sewing room. What a scary mess! I really can't believe I do all that damage....I'll blame it on the dogs! I never did sew all weekend, which is wierd for me.

We had a wonderful day at the Temple Saturday. I wish I could go there everyday. I leave with such a peaceful feeling that everything is going to be okay and that I can accomplish anything.

We had Ward (Church) conference on Sunday. I sang with the choir again. For the longest time our choir was made up mainly of men with a few strong sopranos thrown in. Now we altos dominate the group...yeah, altos! In fact, we went to sing and realized we had no tenors. One man ran up at the last minute and sang his tenor notes as loud as he could. I got a little teary eyed when we sang the song "Families can be together Forever", especially since Tayge was just added to our family. Here's the words:

I have a family here on Earth.
They are so good to me.
I want to share my life with them through all eternity.

Families can be together forever.
Through Heavenly Father's plan.
I always want to be with my own family.
And the Lord has shown me how I can.
The Lord has shown me how I can.

Today has been the usual Monday errands. I am making dinner for the new mommy and her husbands family (since they live with them). When I had E my mom came for a week and cooked and cleaned and took care of me and E and began to teach me all the tips new mommies need to survive. I don't get to do that with E, which makes me a little sad, so I thought I should at least do one dinner to give them all a break. And while they are eating, I'll steal baby Tayge and nibble on his toes!

"nibble on his toes" You and Sara should get together, she's such a baby hog, and has a morbid obsession with eating babies! Hahaha! I'm going to miss her pair of arms. Well and the other 6 extra sets of arms that shared my baby with me this weekend. So what did you make?

I wish MY ward choir was made up of basses. That would vastly improve attendance (I am the ward choir director, and this is a weekly headache for me). Love you!
