Lemon pie

There are few things I enjoy baking as much as lemon meringue pie. And my favorite part is when it first comes right out of the oven and the meringue is tall, full, golden brown and just lovely. Can't wait to celebrate Christmas Eve with my family.

First christmas present of the year!

Hooray for me!  The gifts started coming early this year. My mom made this Halloween quilt in time to decorate her place.  all I did was admire it and ask for it and next thing I knew she gave it to me. :) I have a talented and generous mother. Wish you could see it better. It's amazing!

Minute to win it

Bret and I joined the yw for games tonight. Here's bret trying to toss a water bottle and make it stand on end. No one won that round. We had lots of fun.

80's Rock Band Party

The young women had a party tonight playing guitar hero. We got to dress up 80's style. I decided to resurrect my tina turner costume from 2 halloweens ago. Loved it!

Like bret did several months ago, I've cut my thumb on the mandolin slicer. Ouch!!!

I got my couches back today. They are beautiful if you ask me but I think they clash painfully with the rug. Also I have enough fabric leftover to do 2 wing back chairs (if I can find some and if I have a place to put them) or another sofa. Suggestions?

i REALLY should post more often.  i've been busy with school.  hooray for more school in my life!  i got my first math test back - 102% thank you.  :)  but i'm not posting to brag right now.  in fact, what i want to post has nothing to do with school - that's just my excuse for not posting much. 

last night was the rs general broadcast - sooooo loved it!  one of my friends shared this picture on facebook and it seems like the perfect sum up of my favorite talk.
