My cute kids

Lydia has decided she wants to try coloring like her brother. She hasn't quite figured it out but she is getting the motions down.

Joey LOVES pickles and so does Lydia. When he gets up in the morning it is one of the first things he asks for.

Joey also likes to wear hats. This is one of my new favorite photos. He is starting to get the idea of smiling for pictures and actually doing it....accepting the fact that I am going to be taking them. I love it!

Daily Quotes

I haven't posted for the last couples days so I decided to do a couple little quotes to make up for it.

*"The heart that loves is always young." –Greek Proverb

*"My friends have made the story of my life." –Helen Keller

*Happiness is a grateful heart.

*Learn from the mistakes of others. You don’t live long enough to make them all yourself.

Daily Quote

"There are impelling reasons for our sisters to plan toward employment…We want them to obtain all the education and vocational training possible before marriage. If they become widowed or divorced and need to work, we want them to have dignified and rewarding employment. If a sister does not marry, she has every right to engage in a profession that allows her to magnify her talents and gifts.
The employment we choose should be honorable and challenging. Ideally, we need to seek that work to which we are suited by interest, by aptitude, and by training. A person’s work should do more than provide adequate income; it should provide her with a sense of self-worth and be a pleasure-something she looks forward to each day.
May I suggest a definition of 'honorable employment'. Honorable Employment is honest employment. Fair value is given and there is no defrauding cheating, or deceit. Its product or service is of high quality, and the employer, customer, client, or patient receives more than he or she expected. Honorable employment is moral. It involves nothing that would undermine public good or morality. For example, it does not involve traffic in liquor, illicit narcotics, or gambling. Honorable employment is useful. It provides goods for services which make the world a better place in which to live."
–Howard W. Hunter (Prepare for Honorable Employment-Ensign, November, 1975)

How Embarassing

I just have to share something that I did or I guess didn't do yesterday. I had tons of errands to run yesterday. I went to a retirement home to make sure I had everything I needed for today to sing and then I went to the Library to print of songs and prepare for my Enrichment Commitee Meeting (where I got a couple of strange looks and I wondered what the problem was). Then it was getting too late to fix dinner in time to get to my meeting so I picked up a pizza from Papa Murphy's. A full day! On my way home from all my busy-ness, I looked in my car mirror and realized that I had only put on one hoop earring....silly me.

Daily Quote

Some think of happiness as a glamorous life of ease, luxury, and constant trills; but true marriage is based on a happiness that is more than that, one that comes from giving, serving, sharing, sacrificing, and selflessness. –Spencer W. Kimball

"We are not the same person this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person."

Today I found the first red raspberries in the bushes. I am so excited! There were 6 ready and when I checked later this evening, it looked like a few more will be ready tomorrow! I am going to have to check every day so that none of them go bad. I plan to gradually fill up my freezer bag so that I can make jam....raspberry jam is Danny's most favorite.

How about a close up....don't they look divine?!

As a side note...Danny thinks this is silly of me to post, but I don't care. *Smile*
