Prom Pictures

I took pictures of Austin's prom pics so that you could see how cute his date was. He had a great time! You can click on the pictures to enlarge them. In the group picture he and his date were pretending to shoot the others. I love Austin's face in this...

Prom Night

Last night was Layton High's Prom. Here are a few pictures of Austin in his tux... This is his Men in Black pose as he calls it. Check out his cool shoes!

Not sure what this pose is...what a ham though!
For some reason the tux made him look like he's gained a bit of weight but although he has gained about 10 pounds (which he needed) he is still pretty slim and trim. Lookin' good Austin!

Catch up Time

I know I haven't posted for a while- it seems like most days I don't have anything all that interesting to post about and then, boom, I'll have a few days of post-worthy events all in a row. Of course, these things may in actuality only be post-worthy in my eyes but hopefully my few faithful followers may find them interesting as well. So here are a bunch of pictures from the weeks activities... First- on Tuesday I drove up to Logan to go to Heather's forever friend Katrina's senior voice recital. I got there early enough that we could play a bit and have dinner before the concert so of course we headed to Sugar and Spice, a fun little home decor store. I was looking to redo my kitchen window shelf. Here is the outcome of that venture- I found the rooster at Sugar and Spice and the topiary plant at Tai Pan ( already had the plate).
The cute striped balls in the tall apothecary jar came from Sugar and spice, the jars, apples and seed balls came from Michaels (already had the chicken).

Cute, Huh? I love how it turned out. Everytime I walk over to the kitchen I take a moment to look at it.
Wednesday for our Young Women's activity I talked to the girls about dressing modestly and then we gave them tissue paper, tape, ribbons and napkins and had them design a modest prom/dance dress. I just had to post these pics-
The Laurels (16-18 yr. olds) came up with this beauty, modeled by Molly.

The Mai Maids (14-16 yr. olds) came up with this superhero type outfit modeled by Emma.
And our little Beehives(12-14 yr. olds) designed this darling striped creation modeled by Abby. They had a little help from their leaders. Here they are all together...
They then paraded down the halls of the Church to show the Young Men, who clapped and cheered for them!
Today I headed down to Orem to have lunch with three of my sisters, which is unfortunately something we don't do very often. Kristin was in town for a couple of days and Dona is about ready to have her baby so we had a little lunch/ shower at Mimi's Cafe.

Kristin, Amy and Holly-
and Dona and me. We had a great time talking and catching up and Dona loved having new clothes for her baby. She got some cute dresses, outfits, onsies, diapers, wipes etc.. I found this cute dress-

I loved this dress that Holly found for her. It's a onsie with pink tulle that says DIVA.

Dona is due in three weeks. Can't wait to see the new little one! Thanks girls for a fun lunch!Well, there you go... all caught up with the happenings of my week.

Easter and a Birthday Celebration!

This weekend was First of all General Conference for our Church. Sunday meetings are canceled and we stay home and watch a series of conference sessions at which our Prophet and the 12 Apostles among others speak to us. It was wonderful as always and very uplifting. I love listening to our Apostles and our Prophet. It reaffirms my testimony that they are called of God to lead us and guide us in these latter days. It was also Easter Sunday and since everyone would be here for an Easter dinner, we celebrated Heather's birthday,too. We had BBQ chicken, fresh fruit salad, potato salad and rolls and Heather's favorite, BTS cake...not your typical Easter dinner but delicious none the less. After dinner Heather opened her presents. Han and I were the designated picture takers... Han's cousin, My and her husband Ammon were here visiting from Australia for conference and they joined us for dinner. They are newlyweds (4 months) and were so cute together. We really enjoyed getting to know Ammon.
Heather got Sherlock Holmes from Kyle and Han- a great movie! Notice Austin's face in the background-

Grandma and Grandpa Passey gave Heather some $$- always appreciated.
I took Heather out Saturday night for dinner and shopping. She got a cute white skirt and some lotions from Bath and Body. The rest of her gifts were ... this fun little book called "I Will Always Be Your Daughter"- a parable about mothers and daughters. It's the cutest book and fit Heather and I so well. She read it to all of us.
She also got this necklace...
and this sweater and necklace. I bought this necklace for myself as well and she had worn mine the whole day on Saturday, not knowing that she was getting one. The foot is Kyles', he kept trying to sabotage all of my pictures and...well, sometimes it's just bet to let him win.The reading of the book called for a final picture of Mom and Daughter.
Happy Birthday Heather. Hope you have a wonderful day on Wednesday. I'm so glad I will always be your Mother... and your friend!! Love You!!
