I would hope that more often than not I leave people with a good impression, but I know that there have been times that I have not done a very good job. I have this wonderful friend Kat from Idaho. I did not remember the very first time I met her, but boy did she. Lucky for me I had no idea that she was telling her husband that I was the mean girl she met at church, and I set up a play date with our girls. It was a little strange when she told me that she hated me and when we were both put in Young Women's together her thought was "Shoot know I actually have to get to know her and she is probably nice." Things all worked out for that situation, but I am sure that there are others that maybe have not worked out so nicely.
I hope that the first impression I gave you was a positive one. If not I hope you get that chance to get to know me better.

We had a wonderful fairygod mother
and our stepsisters and stepmother were fantastic.

I got to attend the sealing of my sister and brother-in-law.
and take some pictures of them outside the temple.
This was one of my favorite pictures.
I could not be more grateful to my sister Anngela. She was the wedding planner.
I made my very first wedding cake. I feel like I took a little class on line. I am so grateful to all those people out there that put videos on the internet. It is amazing what you can learn with the help of the Internet.
I made my very first tie. I ended up helping to make about fourteen ties by the end of the wedding. I also enjoy having a reason to make my girls little outfits to match.
Tonight I am finishing up all the props I am over for the Cinderella production that I have been given the opportunity to direct. I made about 30 head bands. I engineered four wheels. Made two pumpkins and a carriage. I have done my best to instruct 40 kids how to sing, act, and stay put with their mouths closed for the past six weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I am thrilled to see the show go on, and very excited to see it all together. I am sure like the wedding day it will not be perfect, but it will be a time in my life that I will always remember.
More than anything this last month I have been given a greater appreciation for all the talents and skills I have been able to develop. About 6 1/2 years ago I became a full time stay at home mom. I could not be more grateful for all that I have been able to learn during these years of being home. A few months ago I had a friend come over to teach how to make hair bows. It was funny as she told me that she was so impressed with the many things I have made. She recalled the many times in Young Women's that I would end up in tears over some project we were working on because I did not like how it turned out. I have always had a desire to be able to do projects and I am grateful that in time I have been blessed with the ability to serve others with the talents I have developed.

The kids made some fun crafts and got these really cool face paintings at the Sandy celebration.
