I love the 80's

My good friend JoDee had a birthday. She is a party girl. She had a party. It was a dance. An 80's dance. It was radical. We relived days past. Here are the highlights.
Orson and I striking a prom pose. You'll notice that I look frightened in every photo.
Here is the birthday girl dancing with her husband Andy. They put all the music together on their ipod. Great job!
Michelle is JoDee's sister. We both graduated from high school in 1987. We look H-H-Hot!
Me with Becky Mecham and Becky Hermosillo. We let Becky H. come because she was born in 1980. Sweet young thing! Sill looking scared.

Typical Saturday night dance.

Of course I forgot to get a picture of all the refreshments. I was too busy eating them. And, there is no evidence of my dancing. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.

My Pantry

It's Beautiful Life Friday over at the Inspired Room. Find out how others are celebrating. Since we have focused on organization for the month of March, I wanted to showcase a huge accomplishment. Thanks to help from my mom, we were able to organize my pantry.

In order for that to happen, we had to create my new food storage area.

In order for that to be accomplished, I had to move all of my scrapbooking supplies and photo albums upstairs to my bedroom closet.

Isn't life beautiful? The focus for living a beautiful life in the month of April is Solitude (regular quiet times) I can't wait. Won't you join me? Let me know if you're in and how you plan to make this happen.

New Beginnings

Every year our young women have a program called new beginnings. They review the personal progress program and welcome any new beehives. This year the theme was...
Each girl got to pick her favorite flower and the bouquet turned out like this...
They sang a beautiful song at the end and Katie and Rachael both sang a solo.
What would an activity be without yummy treats. These did not disappoint...

These girls will always be beautiful to me...

Spring Break

This year, due to Anna's baptism, we stayed here for the first half of Spring Break, then we headed to California mid week.
Monday, we had a barbeque at the park with a couple of other families.

The boys barbequed.

The girls brought yummy side dishes.

The kids played and played and played with not one altercation. WOW!

Thanks to the Dillards and Mechams for spending time with us.

Wednesday we headed to L.A.

We saw this when we stopped for gas.

Here we are in Palm Desert getting some dinner.I love capturing them from behind.

Thursday was our time with Grandpa Webber at the dentist office. We all had cleanings and there were many cavities to fill. It was so stressful that I didn't even take any pictures.

Friday we went to Universal Studios.
I love this place. I have always been fascinated by the movies.

One of the statues behind them is a real person.

We see lots of different characters.

We have fun taking the tour of the lot.

Rachael, Anna and our guide, Matt.



Remember Psycho?

The following shots are of the set of the plane crash in War of the Worlds.

There is a new Simpsons ride. Orson and the four kids went on it. They said it is like Star Tours at Disneyland, only worse. Poor Orson and Katie. Their stomachs don't enjoy these kind of rides.
Down on the lower lot are the two best rides.These are the four escaltors that take you down.
Jurrassic Park is the water ride and it has a really steep hill at the end.

Anna did not appreciate the steepness.

My favorite is The Mummy.It is an indoor roller coaster and it's pretty good. When you get to the end, they take you backwards. Awesome.

We ended the day by going to the City Walk and having dinner at Tony Romas. I was so hungry I didn't take a picture.
