The perfect day would be filled with lots of ...

fun, play, work, family, friends, laughter, hope, peace, smiles, kids, hugs, learning, exercise, enlightenment, sharing

or in other words ....


Larry's favorite scripture is D&C 50:24.  Because it is Larry's favorite scripture, Ann Dee chose it for her boys to learn. Listen to Asher:

I've been blessed to receive a lot of light this last week, mainly because I've been able to attend the Reno, Oakland, Sacramento, and St. Paul temples. There is so much light and truth in those buildings. I love it.

Reno                                               Oakland

Sacramento                                         St. Paul

Have you ever met someone with a bright personality and a light in their eye? It makes me happy and hopeful to interact with and learn from such people.  There really is "hope smiling brightly before us."

I've had so many perfect days lately. It's hard to imagine that there is an even more perfect day yet to come. I guess I'll just have to continueth in God so that light can grow brighter until that perfect day. It's pretty exciting. 

There really is something to learning by study and also by faith. Here is Van reciting D&C 109:7

Salmon and Sweet Potatoes with Amy Jo

Other fun and interesting happenings:

Even though the snow was scarce this winter, I did make it cross country skiing one time

I was also able to spend some fun times with my friends while on my temple trips to Idaho and Texas.

Danielle, Kirk, and Chase at Chase's basketball game.

A very thoughtful gift from Danielle from the Container Store.

Austin food trailers with cousin, Macy Robison

Alamo - got to see the basement. Ha Ha Pee Wee!

Hanging with the Staylyns (Suzanne and Jonathan) on 6th Street in Austin, TX. 

Check out Suzanne's t-shirt - see I told you there was a basement!

I'm so pleased with this can crusher which was installed in my pantry. I use it every day!

These totally gross birds made my patio their home and I'm too grossed out and lazy to stop the perpetuation of this nasty species. Anyone else want to help out?

Until next time, folks. I promise to post those Cooking for One episodes before too long.

Watch out for that first step! It's a doozy! Happy Groundhogs Day!

I love this holiday, especially this movie ...

Sometimes life can be monotonous ... 

And sometimes we run into people like this guy...

The reason I love this movie is because it has a great message. Even though life can be monotonous and people are annoying or we step in a puddle and get our feet wet, we can still enjoy life. If we have hope and are truly happy, we will naturally look for ways to serve others. I love the transformation Phil goes through. 

Every day is a gift ... even if every day is the same day.

Cooking for One with Katy (without Sugar & Flour) Season 2, Episode 01

A typical dinner for Katy

January FHE @ the Wakefields

This is such a fun goal. I love spending FHE with my friends!

Lucky Kenon, she gets to live with all these men. 

We sang "Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam" and then Tyler gave the lesson on faith and courage.

We then played a very intense game of gospel pictionary. And let it be known that Kenon gave hints to both teams so it was fair ... 

But in the end, my team (with Kade and Easton) came out on top.
