Enrichment night

On Thursday night, we had our quarterly home, family, and personal enrichment night at the church and I made seven dozen cupcakes and little goody bags to go at each place setting for our dinner. Our enrichment leader, Wanda, chose a purse theme for the evening (for home, family and PURSE-onal enrichment), and it was a lot of fun to decorate and plan around. We had an excellent salad bar where about 30 women brought some of their favorite ingredients for the ultimate salad, and there were about 50 who attended. I hope it was a nice, uplifting evening for everyone. I think it went well. Now our committee gets to have a little break until the next one in June.

I too think that it went well, and who wouldn't want to get together with all the people that you only see once a week. I loved seeing and chatting with everyone and I think that the theme for the night was just perfect. I know that everyone loved the decorations and I thought that the cupcakes were so fun and yummy. Thanks for doing so much for the event.
Oooh, so pretty!
I was planning on coming, and then I came down with something Wednesday and Thursday. I thought it was the flu, I felt so horrible. It seems to have turned into a normal cold, though, thank goodness. I'm so upset, I keep missing the quarterly enrichment meetings!! Next one, for SURE! (Unless I'm in Houston getting my transplant).

Kelly, that sounds like a lot of fun! A what a TON of work! How do you find the time?! Those cupcakes look great - I am a cupcake lover!

Our RS birthday dinner is tonight. Julie and I are both providing the place settings for 2 tables plus bringing cakes. Julie is making a most divine from-scratch chocolate/Nutella cake and I am making a (scratch of course) scrumptious lemon cake....Yummmm!
Cute cupcakes--I have an affinity for pretty cupcakes! You guys always have the best enrichment nights.

Your creativity never ceases to amaze me! I know you're probably not looking for another career BUT you should totally be an event/party planner. I'm just saying....

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
