Learning about The Bible

We got up this morning to get ready for church and 
Nesi was coughing and started throwing up. So, it 
was only Mel and Loni that ended up making it in to 
church today. 

I'm wondering if she caught it when we went 
walking yesterday. Anywhoo, I thought it would
be a good chance to pop in a dvd about the
Bible for kids. 

I've been trying to get them to watch it but they
wouldn't watch it for more than 5 minutes. I'm 
going to be doing a giveaway on it. But needed
a good review on it with my kids. 

Today is better to do it. Since I've now enforced
the rule,  no tv on Sunday unless it's church 
movies only. So no better time than now. 

So while she's watching the program, I'll be 
making the Kitchenaid 60 minute dinner rolls
from Erin Cooks in the kitchen before the 
boys get back from church. Thanks to Lick

Picking Pine Cones and Looking for Deer

Nature Walk looking for Pine
Cones and Deer.

We decided to go out to the walking trail yes
terday to test out the camera there and catch 
some fresh air, pick some pine cones and look 
for deer and squirrels.

A view from where we're at looking down to
the city. 

Nesi started running to the edge and I told her
to stop and come back. 

Loni joining us, he asked if the mama deer and
the doe were going to be here again. I said, 
I wasn't sure and wasn't in the mood to run into
deers today. Not sure if they're even here in the 

Nesi got so excited seeing the dandelion and 
couldn't wait to blow it.

Nesi got her pinecones.

Afterwards we headed over to the playground
so they could play for a little bit before we head
home for dinner and sleep time. 

Nesi was so ahead of us and couldn't wait to 
get to the playground. 

Taking their turns on the swings
Loni trying out the monkey bars.

trying to go across by herself

only making it to the third bar with a laugh

Loni's turn as the moon is out, it's time to 
wrap up and head home. 

This was kinda creepy as we took it while walk
ing back home. But we had fun.

FHE Night at The Movies

Family Home Evening
at the movies with 
Alice in Wonderland 

We haven't had FHE for a while in our home
since we got  caught up in my Avon Mtgs. and
my husband with his faikava rituals and the
poor kids caught in between. We had Family
home evening at home then for a treat we
decided to take the kids to see Alice in Wonde
rland in 3D. It was wonderful and kids seemed
soo happy that we finally got to go and do
something with their dad, instead of him always
going out with his friends.

I don't think Nesi blinked during the movie
and Loni was so happy to sit next to his father
and enjoyed the movie from beginning to end.
Dh was actually enjoying the movie and laughing
along with the little ones. I've never felt happier,
only if the older ones were here as well.

Loni didn't feel so well after the movie, it could
be that he finished that huge cup of Icee. 

Nesi is still smiling and enjoying her drink.

We saw the preview of Tron Legacy and that is
just awesome stuff with the 3D glasses. I can't
wait to see that movie! Here's the trailer...

Relief Society Birthday Bash and Dance

A couple of posts ago..I posted that I was asked
to make a cake for the Relief Society Birthday
for this past Friday, March 19th. I'll tell you it
was stressing me out all last week and I wasn't
sure if I was going to pull this off.

I've never baked a cake for the board to try out
but they chose me from a handful of other
women they could've picked in the ward. So I
decided that I was going to do a fondant cake,
yes..umm I've seen it done on before but had
I made an actual one in real life? No, but I
figured I better try my hardest since this was
going to be something to feed 300 or more

So the first 5 cakes were apple cakes
then the base cake was 2 different layers of
marble cake. I baked the apple cakes days ahead
of time and let it set in the fridge until the
day of. I baked the marble cakes the night
before and was worried about getting the
fondant on while my two little ones are
watching in the kitchen.

The picture is blurry, Loni [6yo] was my little 
camera guy in the kitchen. He was upset when I 
wouldn't let him do the fondant balls. So I let him
take the pictures. It looks uneven because I have
3 cakes for the top tier and only 2 for the other 
tiers. I had to make it this way because I knew I 
wouldn't have enough fondant to cover the whole
cake. This is all from their budget of $100.00

My friend Sulu's mom came and posed by the cake. 
I was in a hurry that I didn't get an upclose shot of it.

ok. so we ran out of the marbled fondant balls and
had to go with purple and neon pink. But they said 
it's ok. this is before they post up the candles on 

these are the tissue paper blossoms we made the
night before the dance. we attached them to fishing
lines and attached small mirrors the invisible line.

we didn't leave until 2 am. Then I had to be back 
in the church kitchen by 8 or 9 am to start putting
the cake together. 

Lani and Vaha used the table covers as swags and
rosettes for the wall decorations. neat huh?

These are the RS women doing a Bollywood number.

Another number from our culture called the Maululu.
I hope I spelled that one right.

I was trying to catch a picture of Nesi, in the line
dance. She's in the long pink dress holding hands 
with her little friends.
