Cheryl's birthday celebration

Jennie called me three days before Cheryl's birthday and asked if she could throw a little party for her here. I'm always up for a fun time with friends, especially since Jennie said she would take care of all the food. All I did was this sign on the door and got the house ready! Here's the birthday girl, 33 and fabulous!
Tamara, Wanda, Jennie, Lisa, Cheryl, and Lonna
Andrea (barely on the left, below) just had twins recently, and she brought her baby girls. Jennie cooked up a storm! Amy joined us a bit later too.
Lonna and Jenn enjoying some moist and delicious birthday cake before heading out to the pool.
Gabby, Cherie, and Wanda, plus the angelic twins
What a slice of heaven to hold on your birthday! Cheryl's on cloud nine.
Speaking of heavenly goodness....
Those apple dumplings were out of this world!
Jennie prepared an incredible feast.
We had a fun evening outside by the pool and relaxing in the spa. Happy birthday to Cheryl!

This was the best birthday party ever! Thank you so much Kelly and Jennie and everyone who came! You really made my day special. I'm wanting all of that food again, just looking at it. :) And holding the babies WAS so heavenly!! I feel that I should state, however, I am not actually pregnant myself. Ack! Never wearing that shirt again. :)

That was really fun, and I will add that you never know what new and interesting things you are going to learn when you go into a party like that, but when it is all said and done the guests were full of yummy food and new fun facts about each other.

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…

Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party!

Hopefully this title, Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party, does not sound irreverent, because as an Activity Days leader, I felt compelled to come up with a fun end-of-the-summer event that is also uplifting, and after all, who doesn't love a splash in the pool on a hot day in August?  My current church calling, or official role that I volunteer for, allows me to plan two activities each month for girls ages 8 to 11, that will encourage them to learn and live the gospel, serve others, and use the talents Heavenly Father has given them, to learn to do many good things.  This year's seminary course of study for high school students is The Book of Mormon, and since I am a huge fan of this inspired book of scripture, I came up with this idea to have each girl show up to my house with a written summary of one of her favorite stories from within its many pages, and share it with the rest of the girls, while outside in our swimsuits near our backyard swimming pool!  As each girl shares…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
