10 THINGS THAT MADE ME HAPPY!

WELCOME TO NEW FOLLOWER, SMCOLTRIN.  THANK YOU FOR COMING.

10 April - 17 April, 2011

"The future is as bright as your faith."  President Thomas S. Monson

#1  My sister and her son are here visiting.  We are (really) enjoying the visit.

#2  When Logan was a baby I discovered a song that would soothe him when he was upset.  It worked so well that we all used it.
("I love you, "Logan". Oh yes I do.  I love you, Logan, and will be true.  When you're not with me, I'm blue.  Oh Logan, I love you."  from Bye Bye Birdie)
When I sing it to Brooklyn, it makes her laugh.  :)

#3  Lots of years ago (about 15) I watched a movie I liked.  It got "lost".  Eventually, (about 3 years ago) so I could forget about about it being "lost" I ordered the video of it.  (It was cheap.)  I finally watched ""Vanishing Act" (with Mike Farrell, Elliot Gould and Margot Kidder) with my sister.  It was fun.  (Let me know if you want to borrow the video.)

#4  My basket of wheat grass that I am growing for Easter is growing great.  Keith gave it to me last Easter.

#5  I had a $20.00 Barnes and Noble card (I paid $10.00) that was about to expire.  Leslie traded me for a $2.00 Amazon card. 
I bought 3 DVDs.  "Les Miserables (25th Anniversary Concert), "Fitzwilly" (love this Dick Van Dyke movie at Christmas time-or anytime) and "Gaslight" (1944 + bonus 1940.  A good olde suspenseful movie.)

#6  I had an extra avocado from a meal and made a peanut butter and avocado sandwich for lunch.  This is a recipe from my childhood.  And my mom's childhood.  (My grandma had an avocado tree in her backyard.) 
It may sound terrible.  It may look sick.
It is so good.  (From my mom's family we also learned how good it is to put a slice of plastic (American) cheese in a peanut butter and jam sandwich. mmmmm

Peanut Butter & Avocado Sandwich
#7  Game Nights.  Lots of game nights.  And, after one game night, 6 of us made a midnight run to the Taylorsville DEE'S for cheese fries.  We played "Pit", "Skipbo" and a few games of "Scattergories".

#8  Matt, Debbie and I went to "Ensign Peak".. It is my favourite local spot to visit.  (It has a great family hike, but it was raining :(
Ensign Peak
#9  We went to Ashley's VERY FUN Super Saturday.  Look what we made.  (Actually Ashley's Aunt Christy did a TON of the prep work.  There is a "squiggly thing" on the cupcake that holds a picture.  We are copying Christie and putting a hook on the back for balloons. 
Thank you, Christie, for all of your hard work and fun ideas.  Thank you inviting us, Ashley.

#10  Late night cheese fries, again, on Saturday night.  Company is fun.
