National Donut Day

Somehow, the day is nearly over and I just found out that today is National Donut Day. One of my favorite holidays! Even though today is the first time I've ever heard of it. I just want a donut now and called Lindsey to ask her to stop by Krispy Kreme on the way home to get some hot fresh ones for us to have tomorrow for breakfast, but she was almost home. Maybe I've got everyone else wanting one now.

Great. I satisfied my donut urge as I sent Lindsey off this morning to buy a dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for the four of us. Now I really need to get on the treadmill after finishing my allotment of three circular dough balls of bliss per person in our family. It was tasty!

Oh man. My mom has turned me into a dedicated donut fan, and after finding out there is a HOLIDAY in honor of these delectable delicacies... I don't know if I will be able to withstand temptation.

You didn't mention the most important part, Krispy Kreme was giving free hot ones away for those who come into the store :)

I have the unfortunate pleasure of working with a very generous guy each Saturday who as a loyal Krispy Kreme stockholder and buys and brings 5 dozen donuts every single week. It's evil, you can smell them the minute you walk in the door, warm and mouth-watering. What's a man to do???

If I it were possible I would eat them everyday. I LOVE doughnuts. Frosted, glazed, sprinkles, or cake, you name it I will eat it willingly.

I think that the next time I am out I will be getting some, even if it is not on the holiday.

Mmmmmmm, every Saturday is donut day at our house. My taste buds love having a donut shop right down the street, but my waist line doesn't!

I wish I knew about NDD. What a shame. I'll have to recreate the day sometime this week ;)

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…
