April Showers

I bought this wooden umbrella at a Thrift store, and decided it would be a nice decoration for April.  I had to paint it as well.

I went to a funeral yesterday for Kaycie Jo Ashburn  my second cousin.   She is the daughter of my dad's cousin, Wendy.

She was such a special spirit.  She born prematurely and was a primordial, only growing to 2 feet 10 inches tall.  She passed away at age 30.

She was such a big Harry Potter fan, that her family buried her with a wand in her right hand and a stuffed purple owl.

Daisy's Nest

Daisy has taken over a purple flower bush in the backyard, she likes to lay in it like she is a bird in a nest.

Back in June of 2017, I was having chest pain and noticed there was lump in my breast, that felt like a marble.  I had a mammogram and an ultrasound.  I found out I had two masses.  I had my second ultrasound today and there has been no growth, so the doctors believe they are Fibroandenomas, which are benign.  

President Thomas S. Monson passed away on Jan 2nd, at the age of 90.  He was such a great man, known for his charitable acts and missionary work.  He officiated the wedding of my aunt and uncle.  My dad met him, when my dad was serving a two year mission in Germany.  I saw Monson speak at a Branch Conference at the Conference center in SLC.  He's been the only prophet I have seen in person.  I always looked forward to his conference talks.  He was such a kind and generous man.   They called Russell M. Nelson, to be his successor.

I used the Google Arts and Culture app to see my look a like painting and this was my result:

I decorated the house for Christmas right after Thanksgiving Weekend.

I decorated the tree with green lights and woodland creature decorations.  I bought a snowman hat tree topper at Kohl's.

I decorated a Gingerbread house.

I made fudge and Dad made caramels for the neighbor gifts.

We went and saw the Christmas lights at Layton Park.

We went to Trolley Square.

We walked through the Christmas Village in Ogden Park.

On Christmas eve, we had a feast of deviled eggs, lil smokies, chicken tenders, crab legs, chips and clam dip, crackers and cheese ball.  We watched the movie, It's a Wonderful Life.  I made peanut blossoms for dessert.

On Christmas day, we had a feast of ham, funeral potatoes, and cheesecake.  We watched the movie, Pitch Perfect 2.
