I gave these as friend gifts! I had em all dolled up but I was to sick to take pictures! These cute little glittered ornaments make me think of my new little temple they are building in my tiny little town..and anything glitter makes me smile!

This is the quote I added:

  Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing, and
establish a house, even a house of prayer,
a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house
of learning, a house of glory, a house of order,
a house of God; D&C 109:8

Book Report

I was sick over the Holidays...let's me honest I've been sick all month! It has given me lots of time to read. This is one of my latest and greatest reads!
I love a couple cups of girl power w/ 7 or more teaspoons of faith added.

They came bearing gifts...

I decided last Christmas I want to make a better record of Christmas happenings! The night Jesus was born 3 wise men brought him gifts and came to worship him. In that same Christmas tradition I bought my self some BOOTY!!

 My favorite? The 7.00 cake plate from DI! LOVE! The clock is from my baby sister! Also love!

 Pink Polka dot lunch sack, darling mittens, super cute stamps (1.00 DI). Do you see that cute pillow my darling friend Callie made...yes I said MADE!!

Stocking stuffer and my $4.00 BRAND NEW Dansco Shoes.

While working this morning w/ one of my special needs girls (40). We saw a man in a car w/ a furry white beard and red shirt. She got so excited and started clapping and giggling! Later she said
"Heather I didn't know Santa drove a VAN!" So funny!

Happy Christmas Eve!

Peace on Earth!

When I fiest saw this I thought "Pick Pockets!" Upon watching my heart changed! This is what came to mind!

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

"God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;

The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,

With peace on earth, good will to men."

Merry Christmas!

 I woak up w/ a cold...not to happy am I! I hopped to Walmart to get a little somethin' somethin' so I could feel better. When on my way out of the parking lot I saw a homeless man asking for change. The car ahead of me rolled down it's window and handed the old fellow a banana. The little fella was over come w/ joy! First he made a quick phone call on the banana and then jumped around and had the hugest grin on his face. To say he was PLEASED would be a great understatement! Today I was reminded the need and the blessing (to us and others) of small kindnesses!

While in Primary today we learned about the "Christmas Story". We talked about Mary the mother of Jesus and the role she played in the story. A little boy named Robert sat next to me. Upon hearing Mary's name he asked quietly.
 "Does Mary have a little lamb?"

Some like it HOT!

When I has Strep last week...anything warm was a blessing. I had more oatmeal and Ramen Noodles then I care to admit...then I happened on this cleaver idea! Country Time HOT!! It is delish! Try it!

Soup Kitchen

What I leaned while volunteering this morning!

1. If you do not have a fish on the back of your car you are out of style!
2. Hair nets are nothing but UGLY!
3. You will smell like glazed onions all day!

But it's all worth it!

Something to Lean!

Mrs. Sarah at For the Love taught me this when she said:

Now for a little blogging tip. I'm not going to pretend I know very much about blogging, but when I first became a little bit more serious about blogging and building more blogging friendships, I learned a tip that has been really helpful.

I'm always surprised at how many people don't have their email address connected to their blogger comments. If you want to build friendships within the blogging community, or even just receive answers to questions you ask in the form of a comment, this is a perfect way to do it!

Do you all receive notification to your email when someone comments on your blog? Did you know you can just hit reply to that comment? If the email address is not connected it will show the address of If they do choose to show their email address you can reply directly to their comment! It's such an easy fun way to go that next step in connecting with your readers.

Here's how to do it: (if you're using the blogger platform)

Go to Dashboard

You should see your profile on the left hand side.

Click Edit Profile

Under Privacy go to the 3rd choice down from the top

Check the box that says "Show my email address"

There you have it. I look forward to emailing back and forth like crazy now!

I love when people say nice things about me!!

Like sleep'n on a cloud!

I can't wait till the CSN down duvet that I am longing for is lovingly at home on my bed! CSN has lots to choose from and they all look heavenly!! CNS also has leather messenger bags and darling house numbers! What more could a girl ask for then a store that has everything?

Tis The Season!!

The days are slowly slipping by! Today I went to retrieve my "friend gifts" from their high up perch and they are gone!! I wonder if I will find their very special and very secret hiding place before Christmas? Sighh!

I love my list of favorites that I store nicely lined up on my computer. Whenever I need a little creative inspiration I open my little list and click on a few names! This weekend there was a small accident a very LARGE virus..and now many of my favorites are missing. I could just lay on the floor and cry tiny tears!
