The next day Randan, Tucker, and I all went to Randans mother and Father. They had a BBQ that afternoon there was Sue, Jake, Waylon, Josee, Ma Dean, Pa Dean, Granny, Papo, Val and George York, and Don and Eleen Fedelick. A full house, or I guess I should say yard. We had a Easter egg hunt. as you can see in these pictures.The last picture Tucker fell in some mud and came walking around the corner with his hands out and saying "dirty."
On Easter Sunday we (Randan & I ) spoke in sacrament I was scared to death. Are topic of coarse was on Easter. I think we both passed. Well I hope. My Uncle Dave among other family members was there. I pick him out because he is in the stake presidency, and when sacrament was over he came up to us and said, " You both did so well, Stake conference is next week end, so maybe you two will have to help us out." We all laughed.
All in all are Easter week end was lot of fun. We spent it with family and friends. We learned more of the gospel, and Last but definitely not least we got are talks over with.

About month ago I was summonsed to jury duty. I had a little anxiety not knowing what to expect. I had never been summonsed up till this point. I had to be there at 8:15 am. When I arrived there were people trickling in. We all had to walk thru a metal detector. I of course beeped, so they had me assume the position, and ran the wand over me. Once I got all checked in we sat in a Court room for what seemed like for ever. (It was only an hour) The judge came out at told us they would not need our services this day. He also told us that there was some new evidence that had come to light the night before, so they needed more time. The case was on a man that ether sexually assaulted or was sexually assaulted in jail. I couldn't quite get that part. The persona of jury duty has always been that it takes to much time , and nobody wants to do it. I think that I would have wanted to see how a case really plays out, and not how the TV portrays them to be. I was a little disappointed that I wasn't going to get to see that.

I have a confession to make. I am 30 years old, and just got done reading the Book of Mormon for the first time all the way thru. I have started a few times, but this was the first time I made it all the way. In are ward we received this out line of what scriptures to read to make it thru in 100 days. I was a little late getting started, and a few times I fell behind, but I get my self caught up again, and off I would go. If I had any questions I would call Randan. He was always so good at answering them for me. I totally devoured it. I know it is sad that it took till I was 30 years old. Better late then never right. If Tucker, and the rest of the children I hope to have some day, ever get to read this. I want them to know that there mother has a testimony of the Book of Mormon, that it can change your life, and that what it teaches is true.

I love to decorate, and am always changing it. My likes change, or I like so much that I want to change it all the time. In decor that is. The rest of the time I have a hard time with change. Because of this I have a very hard time spending lots of money to decorate something that will be changed in a short time. I also love to make something out of nothing. It gives me a high to spend penny's on something, and make it look like I spent hundreds. Hence I love to shop at the DI or garage sales. Anywhere I can find a good deal.
These are some plates that I found at the DI. Some of them I found last summer, others I found a week or two ago. Yes also at the DI. I finally felt like I had enough that I could do what I had envisioned and came up with how I wanted to finish them. (some times it takes a while to get the creative juices flowing) I was also worried on how I was going to make them look esthetically pleasing on the wall. You know kinda missed matched but make it look like it was suppose to be that way. Make it flow, so I did a trick I have read in magazines, and see on TV. I traced the plates on paper then hung the paper up. If I didn't like where it was just simply moved it, pounded a nail when I got it right, removed the paper, and hung the corresponding plate to the corresponding paper. This is the finished product. I am happy with it. That is till the next idea comes around.
