Stake Conference

October 31, 2010 Leave a comment

Tonight I actually was able to attend an Adult Session of Stake Conference which it has been years since I have been able to do that.  The theme was how we can make our selves more spiritually stronger.  We need to be prepared, study our scriptures and be spiritually and temporally self-sufficient before we can serve others.   I need to work on being better prepared which includes studying my scriptures more and just being gratefully what I have and not what I have lost. I have a lot of work to do.

Stephanie had a great idea for General Conference and I am posting what she did. This will make you pay attention.

General Conference Blog-sharing Activity/Contest

It’s been a long time since I participated in a meme (don’t worry, I had to look it up once, too–it’s basically some kind of questionnaire that you can fill out and pass along to others).  I thought it would be fun to have an extra reason to pay careful attention at Conference.  Here are the meme questions:

General Conference Highlights, October 2010:

1.  Who were your three favorite speakers?

2.  Favorite talk?

3.  Favorite hymn sung during Conference?

4.  Who wore the best tie?

5.  Do you think conference had a “theme”?

6.  Share a few of your favorite quotes (paraphrasing is fine).

7.  Something that made you smile during conference.

8.  Any evidence that your children paid attention?

9.  If you had to give a talk in General Conference (don’t faint, this is hypothetical), what do you think you’d speak about?

10.  What are some of your post-conference goals?

On Monday morning, I’ll post my own answers here on this blog and you can post your answers on your blog.  (You can cut and paste the questions and just fill in the blanks with your answers.)  Then just leave a link to your post in the comments on Monday’s post here.  That way I (and other readers) can check out what you had to say.   And you can invite your readers to do the same thing so you can find out their conference highlights.

i just dont get why some people are so rude?

May 27, 2010 Leave a comment

Our neighbor has been rude and mean since the first day we moved in.  Ben was only 6 and he was playing in the stones they had around a big tree and she came out and yelled at him to get out of there.   Well we have managed to not say anything to them if at all possible to avoid any conflicts.  The next summer Ed was cutting down some dead trees up behind our house when this not so friendly neighbor came running out of her house and up the hill to see what he was doing and of course to yell at him and tell him he better not be cutting down any of her trees ( like if they are dead who cares).   Then one some summer we decided to change how far out the retain wall stuck so we could put our pool up on the spot where the weed bed and been. Well a friend drove his bobcat up the hill next to our house and then next thing we know the city is knocking our door to see what we are doing. Oh you have to have a permit to move over 90 cubic ft of dirt.   Last summer we repainted our house a light yellow, which our neighbor told us they didn’t like the color, who cares she is not paying for the paint.    This evening was the kicker, we have dirt in the driveway so we are parked on the street until we get it put where it needs to go. Ed pulled up to the curb just past our mailbox and they came flying out saying that he couldn’t park in front of their property, what a bunch of bull.  Like you can tell anyone that can’t park on a public street just because it is in front of your house.  Oh and again they said we should repaint our house because it looks like crap but at least we finished painting our house and not part of it like their’s, it is 2 different colors .   Didn’t know I had to get my neighbors permission on what color I painted my house.  Ok I am done with my rant of the rude neighbor.   Now to get the 10 ft fence.

Ben’s First 5th Grade Band Concert

October 6, 2009 1 comment

This is my very first blog. I have not done one in the past, so the trick will be what to write and not to be boring or dull.

Last night we went to Ben’s 5th Grade Band Concert. There are about 115 kids in the band and I must say for only starting in June they were pretty good.  If I can get this to work I will add the 3 videos from the concert.  One is the theme from Star Wars, then there is a song that only the trombones, baritones and tubas played. The last song they did is called Lets Go Band but everyone has heard it at pep rallys, in fact we did this song when I was in high school only the trombones knew it and they we all figured out the keys to play.
