On Saturday we went to a play that my granddaughter, Emily was in. The 7th and 8th graders performed, Shrek, the musical. It was really good, one of the best performances I've seen with kids that age. They were all really good actors and actresses, and I was blown away at their singing and dancing abilities...it was so good! Emily was a, Fairy Godmother, and looked so cute! I love this picture of these two cute cousins, Emily and Taylor, they just adore each other. Emily will miss Taylor when she leaves for 18 months!
Here's this same cutie all dressed up to go to her induction into the Honor Society, and then she's off to a Valentine's Day dance. Again, I just can't believe how quickly they grow up. It really does seem like yesterday that she was a sweet little girl - now she's off to a dance!
Yesterday I had DUP (Daughter's of Utah Pioneers), and I taught the lesson. It was a really interesting lesson on, the transcontinental railroad. I loved learning about all the hard work that went into making it possible for East and West to be connected, it was fascinating. The whole time I was teaching the lesson, my thoughts were on all of those strong, hard working, determined people who worked on the railroad. I wondered if they had any idea how important their work was to the future of the Untied States.
Tomorrow, I have a meeting, although we are going to lunch for the meeting so that makes it a little less painful! Then home to wait for a couch and love-seat to be delivered. We bought it more than a month ago, but because of the terrible weather in the mid-west, the delivery was delayed...by two weeks! It will be really good to have furniture in my living room! And then tomorrow night, we are off to our scripture study group.
Thursday morning we will be off to have lunch with Clara, another little granddaughter. Her school always has a lunch for grandparents or parents on the day before Valentine's Day. We love going because they always take a picture of us, and I love that so much! I'll share last year's picture - Clara has grown so much since this was taken!
Finally, On Friday, I'll celebrate Valentine's Day with my sweetheart. We are staying home. I'm going to fix shrimp and steak, green salad and something sweet for dessert...no idea what! Are you doing something fun for Valentine's Day? Sunday will be church, actually Saturday and Sunday, and then a family dinner at my house that afternoon...whew!! But it's a wonderful way to end the week, don't you think?!
On that note, I will leave you with a sunset. I'm always so happy when the sun starts moving North, and I have a better view of the sunset.
Until next time, be Safe XOXO
Hugs and Love,
