Domestic Goddess (wanna-be) :)

Yesterday I went over to my friends house

who is now doing a canning class every month. We made strawberry freezer jam. It is so YUMMY and so EASY!!! I absolutely loved it. I thought I would be there all day but it just took a few minutes and we were done!!! Thanks Trista for sharing your recipe and your talents. It was great. I felt like a little domestic goddess, or at least I want to be one. So I am learning and trying very hard. I am going to make some with Jill and my Mom this weekend. That's how easy it is, I am even willing to do it twice in one week! For those interested on how to make is the secret ingredients :)

4 cups fresh strawberries

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 package (1 5/8 oz) freezer jam pectin

cut up strawberries into extremely fine chunks and put in bowl. In a seperate bowl, stir the sugar and pectin together. Dump sugar and pectin into strawberry mixture and mix for 3 minutes. WAHLAH! You are done! Dump the freezer jam into 5 little 8 oz jars (the plastic ones with screw-on lids are GREAT). Let sit for 30 minutes then put into freezer or frig!! EASY STUFF.

Elder Bryant Update

This picture is at his graduation in May 2006. He left on his mission on September 6, 2006.

Just thought people might be interested to hear what Nephi is up to. He is on a mission right now in Sacramento, California. He will be coming home in September of this year. Since he has been gone there have been 2 grandbabies born so he is excited to come home and see how everyone has grown!!

He is the Zone Leader right now. They have a baptism scheduled for the 20th of April and is very excited. Since he has been on his mission he has gained 20 lbs. but the 20 lbs. were much needed. He was definitely a VERY skinny man. We are really proud of our little brother and his accomplishments. He is a great example to our family and friends!! WE LOVE U BRO, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.

Deets Wedding

On April 12 we went to David and Nina's wedding. We had a great time. It was probably by far the fanciest wedding I have ever been to! We got to see all of JC's family and had a complete blast. It was a "black-tie affair" wedding so we had to get all dressed up. It was really fun to get all dressed up. It's not every day you get to look fancy!!! Anyways, here are some pics. It was an adult only wedding so my mom and sister watched our kids til midnight. Oh, and I think my husband was the HOTTEST guy there :)

Disney on Ice: Finding Nemo

We had such a great time going to Disney on Ice. I thought it would be boring for adults and fun for kids but it was actually very entertaining. They followed the Finding Nemo story line exactly and it was GREAT. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has the opportunity!! Madison absolutely loved it and stayed intrigued the entire time. Gavin liked the first 10 minutes and then wanted to leave. Leave it to Gavin to be a party pooper :).
