GOD is Busy

I saw this story and thought it was funny so I thought I would share.

A United States Marine was attending some college courses between
assignments. He had completed missions in Iraq and Afghanistan . One
of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist and a member of
the ACLU. One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He
looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, 'God, if you are real, then I
want you to knock me off this platform. I'll give you exactly 15
minutes.' The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten
minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, 'Here I am God. I'm still
waiting.' It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got
out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him;
knocking him off the platform. The professor was out cold. The Marine
went back to his seat and sat there, silently. The other students were
shocked and stunned and sat there looking on in silence. The professor
eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked,
'What the heck is the matter with you? Why did you do that?' The
Marine calmly replied, 'God was too busy today protecting America 's
soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid stuff and act like
an idiot. So, He sent me.'

Bean Bags!

My mom and I decided to make some bean bags for Jaden and the other grandkids. I decided to make mine out of animal prints. They're so cool because some of them are fuzzy fabrics.

We had a blast and Jaden loves them.

The Relief Society's 167th Birthday Party Enrichment Night!

In my ward my calling is the Enrichment Leader. I basically get to plan 4 fun party's a year at no cost to me. Our latest was a Birthday Party in honor of the Relief Society's 167th Birthday that was on March 17th. We had 8 Women sponsor tables where they decorated them however they wanted with their nice dishes and then we had 8 other women sponsor a time period from the time the relief society began back in 1842 to present time.

After a wonderful dinner served by the Miamaids we started the program off with a beautiful musical number.

We then had each woman who sponsored a time era present to everyone what the church and the relief society was doing during that time.

Girls Vacation!

This past weekend all of us girls decided we wanted to take a little trip together alone up to Utah for my cousin Danny's wedding in St. George UT. We packed up all our stuff and headed out! We picked up my mom, Cherise, my sister in law and Liz, my sister. we stayed a night in Vegas at the Sahara for only $8.00 per person and drove the whole way there doing nothing but talking! We still can't figure out how the DVD player works but it was great becuase it forced us all to continue talking. We had so much fun and got to go shopping at some great places like Tei Pan and the outlet stores. Thanks, mom, Cherise and Liz for a great trip!
