HaPpY vAleNtInE's DaY

I just wanted to wish everyone a really Happy Valentine's Day. We have had a really great day so far, and it isn't even dinner time yet. Our day started with with Jer coming home from working and wishing me Happy Valentine's Day. Wow Thanks, What a great husband. Then he told me that he asked Sheena to do my nails for me. Yay what more could I ask for? For Jer I made a booklet of coupons, and on the oppisite side I wrote "I Love You Because ", and put the reasons why I love him.

Then I sent Parker to school, and I started cooking. I love to make fun things on Valentine's Day.

This is my favorite thing to make for Valentine's Day!

This is a new thing that I tried, after Christmas I had some Andies mint candies left over so I put them on top of brownies, only a few actually melted, so they fell off pretty fast. I also cooked the brownies to death, so they weren't as gooie as usual. I sent them to work with Jer, and I don't think his coworkers will mind.

Then I went to Parker's class to help out with the Valentine's Day Party. Ahh crazy! The kids were so excited they couldn't sit still. Here are some pics I took, I couldn't get the kids to stop and look at me, but I did take pictures.

Parker and Payton's picture that I took for Grandma.

Last but not least a pic of Jer and I (Parker took it, Good Job buddy!)

This is kind of neat!!

So today in RS we were disscussing the times that Jospeh Smith saw Jesus Christ. I was writting in my journal and not really paying attention, and noticed April 3rd 1836. The April 3rd caught my attention, because that is my nieces' birthday. I was sitting there thinking how cool that was, when I noticed the teacher write another date on the board, and low and behold it was February 16, 1832, Parker's birthday. So how cool is that two of the three times that Joseph Smith saw Christ just happen to be two special people's birthdays.
I am making bread and it is almost done, so my house smells so good! I was suppose to clean up my card making mess today, but I worked on the taxes today. That should make Jer happy.
Okay now for my mini VENT:
I love Thomas S. Monson, I love the way he speaks, the stories he tells, and how he interacts with the saints. So while saddened by Gordon B. Hinckley's passing, I was at the same time excited that Thomas S. Monson was the first conseler. I know the order of things in our church, and I was well aware that Thomas S. Monson would probably become the next prophet. But what if the Lord had a different idea? What if? What if? What if? So on Feb 2 it was fast Sunday and person after person got and bore testimony of how graetful they were for the new prophet. I was very frustrated that they weren't waiting until there was an offical announcment from the church. So this is propably just a bit of Joe K coming out in me, but again today in someones talk they spoke of the church naming a new prophet two days after the death of President Hinckley, but I am totally giving her the benifit of doubt that she ment two days after the funeral. Okay I am now jumping down off of my soap box. I am going to leave this wonderful link of President Thomas S. Monson talking to the media.

Mini Grandma Dunkley

I don't remember much of my Grandma Dunkley because she passed away when I was almost 3. I do remeber her standing on her door step and waving goodbye to us. The thing that stood out most is her hair in curlers, and the green scarf covering her hair. My Mom said thatgreen was her favorite color, and Grandma Dunkley's hair was so thin that it just looked better in curlers. So yesterday I wrote that Payton has now decided to do her own hair. So she brings me foam curlers today. Not to be used as a styling tool, but as a hair accessories. Here is my mini Grandma Dunkley picture, notice the green dress.

Guess who called yesterday

I don't know if I should be happy or sad or inbetween. Steven Redd called Jer yesterday afternoon on his way to work. Yep that Steven Redd, the Steven Redd of Redds Ranches, the Steven Redd that we have been waiting for a month and a half to contact us. I guess it worked that I wouldn't let Jer go back to work for them until they contacted us. So I guess we will be moving to La Sal. I hate Moving!!!!
I also hate Payton's hair, she has now decided that she should do it. Here is a lovely pic of her right before we went to vote. DID YOU VOTE?????

This picture is of our pet at Pine Lodge. Jer and I were packing up to go back to Moab for Nicole's wedding reception, and Jer saw this outside sitting under the fence. We couldn't decide if it was a really big house cat, or if it was a bobcat. When we went outside to get a better look we started walking towards it, and got pretty close, and it took off, that is when we knew for sure it was a bobcat. To bad we can't let him in the house he would make a great mouser!!!

This is the only picture that we took in the month of January so you better like it. Hopefully we will do better in Feb.
