Helper Competition 2010

Cassie did great this competition. She got a good night sleep, didn't get as nervous and was more aggressive.
Her coaches and I have been giving her talks about being more aggressive.
"Just going for it" It doesn't matter if you fall and she did much better.
She got second place on the trampoline.
Fifth place on the floor and sixth place on the double mini.
Even though her places weren't real high she did GREAT! So much better then last month.

Valentine's Day

Riley was asked to the Sweet Hearts Dance.
Riley wanted a Valentine's tie, he choose this great pink one.

The stuffed animal for her was my idea.
He wasn't sure about it saying "girls think stuffed animals are lame"
I explained to him that he was wrong............girls love stuffed animals.
Natalia was the lucky girl.

I suspect Riley is a fun date. He seems to have fun.

Here is a picture of the cute little mini carton made using my new die cut.

I think they turned out so cute.
I made them for my nieces and nephews for Valentine's Day.

Not a lot of labor but I think they turned out cute.

Sad Day

We had our Young Women's New Beginnings recently.
The sad thing is a week or so before we had it they gave me the sad news they were releasing me.
The president had been in over three years so they released her. Even though I have been in only a year when they change the president they change the whole organization.
It really broke my heart.
We had to keep it a secret during New Beginnings because they hadn't called the new presidency.
I made these little clip boards with some calendar items on them for the year to give the girls.
I talked about the importance of attending the weekly activities and how they can be testimony building experiences.
Our theme was "YW like Butterflies"
I made these handouts for the girls and there parents talking about how the Personal Progress program can help the YW grow from Caterpillars into Beautiful Butterflies.

I will miss working with the Youth but is was a fun year.

Vegas Vacation

Friday night we went for a ride in Las Vegas.
This is a picture of the skyline of Vegas from the parking lot of the Temple.
I love the the style of this temple. It is called the a modern, six-spire design.
Very beautiful at night.
Saturday it rained and rained and rained.
I had to keep reminding myself we where in the desert.
Some of the intersections had drainage problems.
Like any little boy, Scott had fun playing in the puddles.
Then the night I've been waiting for.......
It was the best concert I have ever been to.
4 1/2 hours of great entertainment.
LeeAnn Womack (with brown hair) was good.
My favorite memory of LeeAnn was when she came back on stage and did a duet with Reba "Does He Love You"
Reba is my favorite!!!!!
She was the very first concert I went to in 1989. It was GREAT!
I saw her again my Senior year of High School in 1991.
It was very fun to see her again.
George George George!!!!!
Gorgeous George Strait, this is the first time I have seen him live but I have very early memories of him and have been an admirer of his "Wrangler Butt" for years.
My dad had his albums on good old eight tracks tapes.
Being raised in Arizona his favorite song of course was "Ocean Front Property"
He was great in concert.
I think Scott even enjoyed himself a little.
I know he loves me!

Sewing Class in St. George

Scott and I were going to St. George this weekend on our way to Las Vegas anyway so when I heard there was a class at the new Dave's Bernina down there on Thursday I talked Scott into coming down a day early. It was kind of funny because the teacher of the class, Shannon White lives a block away from me and here we are in St. George teaching and taking a sewing class together.

(I don't know why this picture uploaded side ways)
Shannon taught us how to make this really cool flower.
I love the look of it.


This pattern had a great way to do the pockets. I really enjoyed making this bag.
