What to post...what to post...

Hello Followers...all three of you. :)

I am sorry that I have been so bad at posting lately. I haven't felt well, and have been struggling with what to post since I haven't really been out of the house for a week. goes. We (when I say "we", I really mean "me") decided to invite another family in our ward to participate in Family Home Evening with us. So, we decided that we would have FHE together every other Monday night and switch off on who would give the lesson. I of course, being the slacker I am...didn't plan anything. oops! So, Monday morning I decided, ok, we'll decorate Valentine's cookies...did I have a lesson to go with it? oh, heavens no. ...and of course I waited until the last minute to start making the cookie dough, and I hadn't even gone to Wal-Mart to buy decorations for the cookies, and Valentine's for the kids to give to their friends. The plan was that they would decorate their cookies for their friends and then deliver them with their Valentine', I don't think that's really going to happen, since I was at my friend's yesterday and the cookies were still on the counter, and the kids were wanting to eat them. But I say, what the them! So...back to not having anything done... At 6:45p.m. we left for Wal-Mart...oh, we were supposed to have FHE at 7p.m. oops. So, at 7:30p.m. my guests arrived for some good ole' fashioned cookie decorating. We had sugar cookies, pink frosting, conversation hearts, red hots, 5 different kinds of sprinkles, and Valentine's candy corns. We started off with a song, "When there's love at home" and then I winged it with the lesson. We talked about how we can show our friends and family members that we love them. The kids decorated their cookies...mostly with LOTS and LOTS of candy, and tons of pink sugar...edible, not sure. Anyway, we had a good time, and I'm happy that it's Cathy's turn in two weeks. :)
