WARNING this might be a long one....You have been warned

Guess what I did the other night.Kevin and I went to the opening night of Wicked and was it ever Wicked!!! I loved it! This was my third time to see it. First time in NY, second time was in LA and now in SLC. And I just love it. You forget just how clever it is, and some of the lines are just so funny. The singing ,the dancing ,the costumes, the sets, just everything is so good about this show. Did I mention that I love this show. I could so go again. If only they had more seats available and what a 100.00

buck -a -roos laying around. I am sure that's what I would do with it.

What else have I been up to lately. Well I started to do some sewing again.

This is a monthly sampler that I embroidery. Finally got around to picking out the fabrics to sew around it. I think that the colors turned out nice. Now I just have to pick out backing. It will be good to get this done. and hung up. It is going to the cabin. I have 2 more that need to get done. I am just so slow. Here are several sewing projects that I have in the works. I have no time to be bored.Just look at this. I have cut strips and squares and am in the process of sewing them together. It is going to be a quilt top. So far I have 6 rows done. This is going to be a slow process. And while I sew it together I am doing this too....
I am going through old videos. You know the ones we took when our children were really little. The ones that you take and never watch again. Well I am watching them, the ones when I could get them to sing to me, dance, show off matching outfits. Have fashion shows, twirling, loving each other. Cute smiles, reciting poems, sleeping so peacefully, piano recitals. birthday parties, school programs. Yeah, can feel the emotion of our family when they were little. I loved that time in our lives. Why can't they just stay little. They love you more when they are little you know. They love each other. Life was of course simpler back then. Close neighbors were abundant. Visiting outside while kids rode bikes, jumped on trampolines, playing in the sprinkler, playing with barbies. The little boys wanting to squirt the girls, listing to them scream, having picnics in the back yard, playing in the playhouse. Going to each others birthday parties, celebrating each others lives, not anymore.

Now weddings are happening and new babies are coming. Thank goodness for new babies. We can hold them ,love them, even when we feel lonely they can feel the void. Thank you God for giving us new babies. Thanks for allowing us to have families and living in such a wonderful place.

What else has been going on....

Well this last weekend was conference. And as a memeber of the Church of Jeus Christ we have conference twice a year. I love conference. We listen to our Prophet and the apostles and other members speak to us. Giving us messages that we need to hear. They are guide lines to live by. Helping us to do better. I enjoyed the entire session. To be able to stay home and hear these words. Then these messages will be posted in next months Ensign. Or we can listen to it on the website: I already have been playing it while I try to get some scrapbooking done.

Lets see I have been trying to do some scrapbooking too. My goal for the year is a big one for scrapbooking. I want to get so much done. Get the pictures in their books and be able to enjoy them. I should try to keep a tally of how many pages I do this year. I use to keep a list of the things that I sewed durning the year. It was amazing how much stuff I actually did sew. I'll work on that tomorrow.

Lets see I also did this....
I got to go to lunch with these two cuties. Tierney and Julane. Lunch at Kneaders is always a good day. After lunch Julane and I went shopping. What a treat to have them in my life. Thanks girls we really should do it again.

Well this is going on way to long. Spring break is coming. Yeah and we are going to the cabin.

We really should be staying here and working on the biggest mess that we have going on in our front yard. (I will take some pictures and post them later). Then you will see what I mean by that.

Well bye for now
love,love, kiss,kiss
the mom
