Jimmy dressed to the nines

Jimmy's prom is today. He came over last night to show off his tux. The group is taking the girls clay pigeon shooting so he had to come get a gun. James Bondish don't ya think?

Draper Temple

Last Wednesday afternoon we took some of the kids to the Draper temple open house. From the time I left work until we got back home was 6 1/2 hours. We had no idea that the tour set up was so involved. We thought that a Wednesday afternoon would be less crowded. We were wrong, it was packed. It is wonderful yet hard to believe that so many people are interested in seeing the Temple. The Temple was beautiful and the spirit was so peaceful. The kids asked amazing questions and we had a great time. Phil and Chelsea's wedding will be here in May. We sent Chelsea a text telling her how pretty the bride room is. She was so excited about it.

Maren made a cake for the school Dr. Seuss cake contest. Anyone want green eggs and ham? We will find out tomorrow if she has won a prize. Cross your fingers, Sam I Am!

We had a fun Sunday with most of our crew. The weather was warm enough for Mike to break out the grill and make some of his famous chicken. Arianne and Dustin came up and made us oreo truffles. They were to die for.
