Celebrating my birthday all week

In addition to a few who aren't pictured here, these generous, delightful women from my neighborhood treated me to a fun lunch out, six days after my birthday, making this my third daytime dining soirée of the week. The two women on each side of me are part of our cycling group, the Biker Babes, our self-titled description. Humble, aren't we?
Here are Zee and Kimberly.
Here are Kelley and Denise.
Here is Waleska and me.
Here are Donna and Kelly. You got it, one third of us that day are named Kelly or Kelley.
Here are Theresa, Sherrie, and Scott.
We went to Kobe Japanese steakhouse, which is conveniently close to our homes.
Kelly and Theresa once more.
The busy chef adding plenty of salt to our scallops, and everything else that day.
This was my third or fourth birthday dessert of the week, and candle to blow out. I'm all for keeping the celebration going as long as people are willing to continue!
I can't remember what I wished for, but I do remember liking the chocolate cake. Thanks, wonderful friends. I seriously felt loved by being surrounded by each of you that day. So far, my 47th year has been my best.

Well that is the way to celebrate a birthday if I do say so. Seriously lets have another party/dinner/lunch for you I would be in.

Who wouldn't want to celebrate some great times with friends and some yummy food. I think that you are on to something wonderful here...lets celebrate you some more.

You're so nice, Lonna! But what you don't see is the two other lunches out that I already had. One with our RS presidency, and one with my old AM ward RS presidency. I'm moving on to the next few holidays now! I do want to get together with you sometime soon still. I miss you!

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…
