New Calling

I totally forgot to let you all know that I have a new calling in my ward. I have been called as a nursery teacher. This will be interesting. I've taught primary before but never been in nursery. So pray for me as I enter the world of toddlers for 2 hours each Sunday, for at least the next 6 months. Our bishopric has decided not to have anyone in there for more than a year or else they get left out of things. I will keep you all posted.

Movie Weekend Bonanza

I would've posted this yesterday but I was having issues with my computer. Over the weekend we rented several movies and watched them all. I will list them and rate them with a 5 star rating the highest.

August Rush - 5 Stars (Intense, and heartwarming movie)
The Other Boleyn Girl - 4 Stars (I love history and this just brought it to life.)
Alvin and the Chipmunks - 4 1/2 Stars (this one was mainly for Scott to watch, but it was very entertaining.)
Ratatouille - 4 Stars (this was also for Scott. Disney never ceases to amaze me with the things that they come up with.)
Becoming Jane - 5 Stars (I aboslutely Loved It!! This movie is for anyone that loves the Jane Austen books.)
Gramma's Boy - 4 Stars (this was a funny movie but not for an LDS audience. I didn't realize it until one scene.)
The Great Debators - 5 Stars (Excellent movie!)

I have never watched this many movies in the course of 2 1/2 days.

Muffins Anyone?

Tonight I was in a baking mood. So I pulled out a few of my muffin mixes and proceeded to bake. We won't be able to eat them all so I will be taking most of them to work to share with my co-workers. So I thought that I would share with you all how they turned out.

Don't they look YUMMY!!!

4th of July Weekend

On Friday night we went to my friend Joyce's house for a BBQ and we had a lot of fun. We especially had fun taking pictures with and of her new little baby girl Charlotte. Scott really took to her. He always wanted to hold her, and I think that she liked him as well.We really enjoy our friends company and try to see them as often as we can. Then on Saturday Matt and Scott headed up to Roosevelt Lake with Matt's brother Rick and his family. Unfortunately I was not feeling too good.

Pre-4th of July Festivities

Okay so we have a fun filled weekend ahead. Tonight my friend Joyce and her husband Daniel have invited us to their house for a BBQ and to watch the fireworks and enjoy one another's company. We may end playing some games as well. Next on our list is the Lake. Matt's brother Rick has invited us to join them on their boat tomorrow. It's been a while since I've been to the lake so it will be an adventure with a 4 year. I'll keep you all posted. Pictures will soon follow. Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July and a safe weekend.
