Bedding, Book Club, and a Bracelet

I finally got some new bedding for our bed. We have been using an old comforter we inherited from my mom, after we took a queen sized mattress from her basement to Amy in California. Amy has not been in California in, maybe, 8 years, so it has been a long time! And I never even liked it, but it was warm and serviceable and it worked just fine.

But we needed new sheets and so I got new sheets and a "down-alternative" comforter and a duvet cover. I got a great deal on the sheets, and I am excited to try them out tonight, because they are 600 thread count. We have never had 600 thread count before, so hopefully they live up to the hype.

You cannot tell from this picture, but our mattress and box spring sit right on the floor. We have never bought a "real" bed, and right before we moved to this house (3.5 years ago!), our bed frame broke, and we have never replaced it. I like that I never have to vacuum under the bed anymore, though. Saves me time!

Someday we will buy furniture for our bedroom. Luckily, Greg has a cousin who sells furniture wholesale. I have already picked out the bed I want. And a new kitchen table, and new barstools, and baby furniture, and .... You name it, I have got my eye on it!

Tonight I went to the Blue and Gold Banquet and a Court of Honor and my book club. It was a full night and fun to see everyone. The little boys looked so cute in their Scout uniforms.

Then it was off to Book Club. I got a great compliment from Abby, Tiff's little girl. I am usually pretty late to BC because I go to my Institute class and then on to see my friends. We almost always move our meetings to Tiff's house because her husband travels a lot for work, and it is easier for her to have it at her house so she can put her kids to bed. Last month I skipped Institute because it was my month to host, so I was the first one there, and I had a lot of fun talking to Libby and Abby before Tiff packed them off to bed. Tonight, because of Blue & Gold and the Court of Honor, I also skipped Institute and made it to BC by about 8:20. The little girls were just getting in to bed, so I got to talk with them for a few minutes. Apparently, right before I got there, cute little Abby asked her mom if the lady who is always nice to her was coming.

That's quite the compliment! It totally warmed my heart to be thought of as the lady who is "always nice."


Book Club is always so much fun! I have waxed long about my BC friends before, and I will reiterate - it is nice to have such good friends! Sorry to Kandice for missing her in the picture above - I grabbed the camera to shoot Ellie with her cute folded hands, and it was before Kandice had made it. Ilene brought me a belated birthday present of this cute friendship bracelet. It is little things like this that made me feel loved! When I have down days, I look at things that remind me of love and goodness in the world, and this bracelet is going to be added to my list. Thanks, Ilene! (This is probably not making much sense, but it is 12:48 a.m. and I am a little punchy. Off to bed now....)

Adoption Profile

I have made some updates to our new Adoption Profile and linked it in the right sidebar. I figured out how to resize the pictures so that nothing is cut out, and I made some changes to our letter.

Thanks for all of the suggestions, especially the suggestions from Pops. He gave a lot of detailed feedback, and a lot of it I used verbatim. If you know him, you can probably pick out the sentences he wrote!

Children

Children are a delight and a joy and definitely a tender mercy. Last Wednesday, Greg and I had the opportunity to go to the Draper Temple Open House. We were in the same group as some fun people from our ward, Josh and Susy and their 3 kids. Their little boy, Jaxon, used to be in my Primary class and they are all smart little cookies.

We started at a church and watched a video on temples, and then they bussed us up to the temple. The oldest girl, Taylor, saved us seats on the bus, and we had fun chatting all they way up the hill. After the bus dropped us off, we walked for a while through this covered walkway. We started off, and then the littlest girl, Emma, looked around and reached up her hand and took my hand. It totally melted my heart!

Children are so sweet and loving! Greg and I were talking on the way home from the open house, and Greg said that is why it is so hard when children are harmed, because they are so trusting and innocent.

Then, today at church, I heard another funny story. Michelle was telling her children about our ward book club last week, and when she said I was there, her 4 year-old daughter said, "I know her; she is the one with the pretty dresses." How about that for a compliment?

Even with their "tragedies," kids are adorable. Today at church we had 2 criers. One never told me what was wrong, but she seemed better after we just sat together for a few minutes. The other was a little boy that felt that no one in his class ever listened to his ideas. After telling me about it, he was OK and went back. I can totally sympathize with feeling that people are not listening to you, and being frustrated with it. It is interesting to me how children are constantly learning how to deal with their emotions. Do I know how to deal with my emotions, or do I just mask them and act politely?


One of the reasons why I love teaching piano is that I get to hang out with kids so much. I have only ever taught piano to have children come to our home every week. It is so much fun to be a part of their lives as they are growing up. One of my favorite things to do is go on 8-week treats. If my piano kids practice for 8 weeks in a row, and have good attitudes at their lesson, then I will take them and a friend out for a treat (usually ice cream). Here are 3 of my piano kids with their friends. Love the blue tongues on Elena and Kimberly! Tyler and Madelin always want to go to Artic Circle (because it's cheap and they get both shakes and fries). Briggs and Lexi seemed more than happy to go along.

Farm Boy

Tammy came over last night after the basketball meeting, and we had fun eating soup and toast and talking and laughing. The funniest thing that happened was part of our conversation. It went something like this:

Tammy: Black guys are hot!

Heather: Yeah. Bring home a black guy - you will have the most beautiful babies!

Tammy: That's true.

Heather: I have always said that it doesn't matter what your race or ethnicity is; you can have successful marriages with anyone as long as you share "Mormon" culture. Take Greg and I, for example. We were both raised solidly in Mormon culture, but I was raised as a snobby, Eastern city girl, and Greg was raised as a Western farm boy.

All guffaw loudly and tease Heather mercilessly for many minutes.

Heather: That didn't come out quite right. But, if Greg is "Farm Boy" than he can only say "as you wish" to me from now on, right?

Stake Conference and Valentine's Day

We have had a great weekend full of wonderful meetings and Valentine's Day celebrations. I have had a bunch of reminders this week that I need to take more time to be thoughtful and reflective.

Greg usually gets me flowers a few times a year, including on my birthday and on Valentine's Day. It's great to have fresh flowers for about a month straight! This year, my birthday flowers are still going strong, so I have two bouquets on my table. I am pretty spoiled at this time of year, I know!

Daisies are my favorite flower, so Greg always gets those for my birthday, and roses are Valentine's Day are a given, right?

We got a new Stake Presidency at this conference, and since Greg is on the High Council he got to have a 7-minute interview with Elder Ballard. After Greg got home from his interview we hung out for a while (and he was really excited about me taking his picture), and then he went back to the Leadership Session. He came home and got me and we went back to the Adult Session. My favorite thing that Elder Ballard talked about was that we need to "Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalms 46:10). I needed that reminder to focus on what is important; to take a few minutes every day to reflect on the tender mercies that are evident in my life.

After the session, we tried to go to Paradise Bakery with Joanna & Merrill and Gwen & David. The bakery was already closed, so Jo & Merrill went home to get their kids to bed and we went with Gwen & David to Olive Garden for a little celebration dinner.

As I think about all of the tender mercies evident in my life, I am most grateful today for Greg and the way he takes care of me. I came down with a cold on Friday, and this weekend it was all about me as he made me food and let me take naps and fetched things for me. He is the greatest husband in the world, and I am really grateful that I snatched him up (even though my family thought I was crazy at the time)!

The new adoption website

One of the cool features of the new adoption website is the ability to look at some statistics. This feature was just released today. Here are our numbers:

Profile statistics since your profile was published.

Your profile message page has been viewed 137 times.

Your photo album has been been viewed 75 times.

Your getting to know us page has been viewed 29 times.

Your contact us page has been viewed 15 times.

I think our numbers are so high because so many of you have taken the time to look at our profile. Thanks for doing that!

I have made some edits of our letter and resized all of my pictures (finally figured out how to do that). The new stuff is not showing up yet, though, even though I made the changes on Monday. I am going to contact our case worker and see how long it will take for the updated profile will be published. Thanks for everyone's feedback.

P.S. I already picked up my newly fixed car last night. It was just the computer chip that tells the fuel pump to put fuel in the engine. One part and an hour of labor, and we are good to go. Here's to at least 12 more months out of our 11-year-old car!

My poor car...


I just watched my poor car get towed to the mechanic. The nice surprise of the day is that the tow-guy was my former next-door neighbor, Nathan. I knew he looked vaguely familiar, and he put it together. They moved a long time ago, because his was the house that Adana bought. He asked about Kyle & Jonette and Grandpa John and said to pass along his hellos.

I hope my car is not on its last legs. Greg said it sounds like a fuel-pump problem, which is relatively inexpensive to fix. Here's hoping it's nothing more serious! We just had this car redone after my little fender bender, and I want it to eke out at least another year.

Daniel

This is my favorite picture of Dan, ever! I took it back in 2003 when we went to Disneyland with him, Tammy, Kyle, Jonette, Kylene, Kiera, and Kaysen.
Last night I got to play with Daniel. I love when he comes over! He is such a blessing and a tender mercy in my life. He reminds me of what is good in the world - kindness, love, and good-hearted fun.

Greg's dad dropped him off about 5:30 when Dallin was here for piano. He came in with 2 burgers and fries and a shake.

We turned on the TV for him so he could be entertained while he ate, and I was looking through the guide for something he would want to watch. I saw Power Rangers was on, and I know he used to watch that with Kaysen, so I asked him if wanted to watch Power Rangers. Danny said, "Yes. Walker. Texas Ranger." Smart boy knew that he wanted a particular kind of Ranger! Luckily, Walker was on, and Dan was happy as a clam watching until I was done with piano lessons. He gets so intent on what Walker is doing, and he has to act out every scene. So cute!


By the time I was done, he had finished eating and we pulled out his toys and put in Indiana Jones. I pulled out my new toy and got some action shots! He has the Indiana Jones movies memorized, and he acts out the scenes before they happen. Notice in these pictures how he has lined up the movies on the floor just so, and how he has organized his toys very neatly, and how he stood up a couple of movies on the DVD player. Typical Daniel.


I took a few videos of Daniel, but I have only put a couple of the cutest ones here. In the one on the left, listen for Dan saying "Indy. You calm down. Don't do that." In the one on the right, watch as Dan acts out the movie, and listen for "no kick. Not nice." After about 12 seconds, there is just a lot of standing and watching, but I do not know how to edit the video clips to make it shorter. Sorry about that!
video video

Overall, it was a fun night! Danny even did his typical swearing and personal chastisement when Daddy came to pick him up, because he wanted to stay and finish his movie. It's bad that I find it so cute when Dan swears, but he always tells himself not to swear immediately, and that is what tickles me. It goes like this, "Shoot. Don't say that. Don't say shoot." (only he is not really saying 'shoot.') He gets so upset with himself for swearing that it should not be adorable - and yet it is.

Here's to many more nights spent with the amazing Daniel Ray!

Weekend Highlights

Another fun weekend has passed. Here are the highlights:
  • Friday night I went to watch Greg ref with Greg's dad. He is so cute! We don't hang out with just the 2 of us very often; Greg and/or Greg's mom is usually with us. We watched the game between the #1 and #2 teams in the state, and it was an exciting game. I (unfortunately) forgot to bring my new camera, and I wished I had had it there to take pictures of Greg in his extremely flattering referee uniform. I also learned a new cheer (compliments of the Lone Peak fans) = Shoot the zebra, clap, clap, clap-clap-clap. Repeated ad nauseaum.
  • Saturday morning we had a Primary Quarterly Activity. Our theme was love and service, in honor of Valentine's Day, and we had the Bears help us plan it. The children brought a gently loved book (which we will donate to the Woman's and Children's Shelter in Provo) and we had some fun stations. In my station, we played Bingo with conversation hearts as markers, and ate donuts, and played a game where the kids tried to transfer the hearts from one bowl to the next using bamboo skewers. The original idea was to use chopsticks, but it was cheaper to buy the skewers. Meant to bring my camera, and forgot again! I need to get back in the habit of taking my camera everywhere.
  • Sunday night we went to Mary & Bill's house for dinner. Carolyn, of the infamous shoulder-tapping-in-church incident, had a lot of fun talking to Greg about that. I made the 3 older kids play their Festival songs for me, and am totally impressed with their piano teacher, because they are super-prepared with Festival still a month away. My piano kids need to step it up! (Not that I am comparing, or anything). We also learned that a few years ago, Bill took a 10-week sabbatical, and they hooked up their trailer and went on a family road trip to all 48 continental US states. ALL 48 STATES! With 4 children. Ages 2-10. Bill said it was the highlight of his life. How long have I known Mary yet, and I had never heard this story? Bill has a website, which I knew Mary had linked on her blog, but I had never clicked on it before. It is fabulous!
It was a great weekend! Tonight I get to babysit Daniel. Can't wait!

Interesting Editorial

Tonight at Institute, Bro Holzapfel told us about an interesting editorial he had read that was published in the Belfast Telegraph. I found it and also found it made good points, so I am including it below:

belfasttelegraph.co.uk

Eamonn McCann: What if Mormons are right and Catholics and Protestants wrong?

Thursday, 28 August 2008

Why are the Catholic bishops so concerned about Mormons baptising dead parishioners? The Mormons didn’t invent baptism of the dead. The practice has a significant history within mainstream Christianity. The decision to order its abandonment was taken only after heated debate, and was a close-run thing.

What’s the difference, anyway, between baptising the dead and baptising babies? A tiny infant will have as much understanding as a dead person — none at all — of the complex philosophical belief-system it’s being inducted into when baptised, say, a Catholic. Transubstantiation? There’s daily communicants go to their deaths without any clear understanding of the concept. So what chance the mewling tot?

Indeed, given that all Christian Churches believe that the soul lives on after death and retains understanding and consciousness of self, doesn’t it make more sense to baptise dead adults than live babies?

Apart from which, if the Catholic bishops hold that the beliefs of the Mormons are pure baloney (as they must), and their rituals therefore perfectly meaningless, how can it matter to them what mumbo-jumbo Mormons might mutter over Catholic cadavers?

The current controversy has been prompted by Archbishop Dermot Clifford and Bishop Bill Murphy complaining to the National Library in Dublin about records handed over by the Church being made available to all and sundry. The Mormons are believed to have taken advantage of this facility to comb through parish records and baptise the souls enumerated therein, a batch at a time.

The bishops stepped in after the Vatican warned all national churches earlier this year about Mormons misusing diocesan records. I have heard it suggested that the alarm of the Holy See had escalated after reports that Mormon multiple baptisms were regularly breaking the official record set by General Liu Kung Lee who, in one afternoon, baptised seven regiments of Chinese soldiers into Christianity with a fire-hose.

Let’s look at the facts as understood by the early followers of Christ. For more than 300 years after the Crucifixion, baptism of the dead was widely accepted, its biblical basis located in 1 Corinthians 15, 29: “Otherwise, what shall they do who are baptised for the dead if the dead rise not again at all? Why are they then baptised for them.” In other words, a deceased person could be baptised by proxy: otherwise, how could such a person be included in the Resurrection? A good question.

The radical Cerinthians and the Marcionites were especially energetic baptisers of the dead. It was to wrong-foot these sects, seen as competitors with the official Church at a time when it was consolidating its position as the State religion of the Roman Empire, that the Synods of Hippo (393) and Carthage (397) voted, after bitter debate, to condemn the practice.

Interestingly, a clear trace of baptism of the dead has lingered in official practice to the present day, in the form of prayers for divine intercession on behalf of the unbaptised souls. Prayers for intervention were encouraged in Catholic schools in the 1950s. For all I know, this remains the case.

Baptising the dead might be seen as analogous, too, to the Jewish prayer of intercession. Which serves as a reminder that US Jews put a halt to galloping post-mortem Mormonism a couple of years ago by arguing that deJudaising those who’d perished in the concentration camps constituted a profound insult to Holocaust victims. Following talks in New York between leaders of the two religions, the Mormons backed off.

The key point is, surely, that all religions believe that the soul, after death, at last knows what’s what — whether Hinduism, Free Presbyterianism, Jainism, Judaism, Islam, Catholicism or whatever is the true religion. What if it’s Mormonism? What if it’s an everyday occurrence on the other side that Catholics and Protestants are left standing dumbstruck at the Gates, gasping: “Mormons! Who’d have believed it?” And maybe a wife berating her husband: “There! I told you it would be the Mormons! But would you listen?! Now it’s eternal hellfire for the two of us, I hope you’re satisfied.”

In that scenario, shouldn’t all members of all other religions be literally eternally grateful to the Mormons for sharing their saving grace even unto and after death?

If, on the other hand, it isn’t the Mormons at all, those who turn out to have been right can wave a merry farewell to the crestfallen followers of Brigham Young as they trundle downwards to their eternal comeuppance.

What’s the problem?

Stockers

My life is a study in contrasts. One of those contrasts is my current employment situation. I teach classes at a University, and I stock magazines at our local Wal-Mart. And I enjoy them both!

I embrace my apron and box cutter at Wal-Mart, and I enjoy chatting it up with my friend Joanna, also known as Stocker Jo. Jo and I have so much fun lifting our crates and getting all dirty. I thought I was getting pretty good at using the pallet driver, until today. I could not get that sucker to go where I wanted it to go!

On the other hand, I mostly enjoy wearing dress clothes and I always enjoy chatting it up with my friend Beth at school (especially when she brings her baby to work with her).


So, I guess what I am trying to say is that contrasts are a good thing. I do what I can to stay busy and have an excuse to see my friends every week. When Beth switched her class to Tuesday/Thursday (instead of MWF) so she could have more time with Jayston, I had to switch my class to Thursday (instead of Monday). What is the point of going to work if I can't see Beth?

Super Bowl Party

I have had a great week! It started last Monday by being able to babysit my nephew Andrew. Gwen had set up visiting teaching appointments, so Andrew just came with us. He was so good! He was a little sleepy so he was pretty snuggly. I have never had him cuddle up with me like that before - normally he just wants Mommy or Grandma or Aunt Tammy (hard to compete with amazing women like that!). This time I was the best option, so he took it. He even fell asleep for about 15 minutes at Nina's house.

When we got back home we played with this car that drives off of a track for a long time, and then he pushed a baby around in a baby stroller until Tanya got back. Andrew was pretty mellow for me, and the instant Tanya walked in the door he was much more animated. He really knows how to push Tanya's buttons! Tanya is such a good mom. Andrew is clearly completely in love with her. Someday I want to be a mom just like her.

Then my dad wrote a blog post about me for my birthday. It is interesting to see how he sees me - an interesting look into his perspective. It's a little embarrassing, but in a good way. Thanks, Pops, for making my day!

Yesterday at church we had a pretty funny moment. We were sitting behind Mary and Bill and their children (loved this pic, Mary!). Right in front of us were Emily, Carolyn, and Nathan. Greg snuck one of his extremely long arms up and tapped Carolyn on the left shoulder. She immediately turned to Emily and said, "What?" Emily, of course, looked very confused and gave Carolyn a completely blank stare. Next Carolyn turned to Nathan and said, "what?" Nathan also looked confused. Carolyn looked back and forth a couple of times before figuring out that her brother and sister were telling the truth and did not know what she was talking about. So she peeked back and us, and I pointed at Greg. Greg gave her an innocent face, but Carolyn is too smart for that and knew that Greg had done it. She waggled her finger at Greg, and then suddenly pointed at her eyes with 2 fingers and then pointed at Greg, before emphatically turning back to face the front. We were rolling! The finger pointing was so spontaneous and genuine (and Carolyn looked over her shoulder at Greg many times over the rest of Sacrament Meeting). She is so spunky!

Last night we had all of Greg's family and my mom and Gwen & David over for the Super Bowl/my birthday. We've had people over enough times now that the kids know the routine, and they totally have the run of the place. Love hearing all of the noise and the giggles!

My new toy for my birthday is a digital camera. I have had so much fun getting to know it and take pictures! We finally entered the digital age... I have been resistant because I love love love my camera, and it takes fabulous pictures. But I can already tell that this is going to be a good thing and a fairly easy transition. I turned the camera over to Clay for a while and he must have snapped 50 pictures. He took a lot of good ones. I will put my favorites below, and if you want to see all of them, I have uploaded them to Picasa here.

We had so much food! I tried to get a picture illustrating the magnitude of the goodies, but I do not think the picture even does it justice. The big hit of the night was that Todd & Rachel made homemade wontons and egg rolls. They were so good! And thanks to Kent & Jessica for bringing the 3D glasses for the halftime show, and for forgetting to take them home again. If anyone needs 3D glasses, let me know.


This is my new favorite picture of Tylan. He is such a good boy, and a total ham! He gives the best hugs (almost squeezing your neck off of your shoulders). I hope he never grows out of it. He probably will, though. Kaysen used to be a snuggly boy, but he is way to big for that at (almost) 10.


It is really fun to watch Brayden with Andrew. Brayds is so gentle with the little Bobo!



video

The big surprise of the night was when the door bell rang, and Dan ran to open it, and walked back with Jasmine, Rod & Jayme's daughter (who live in California). I was very confused until Jayme walked in behind them. She and her mom came for a visit, and came to us first! It was fun to see them. Jasmine so cute! Here she is giving Kyralyn a kiss, and hanging out with Andrew.



Every time Danny comes over he has to play the piano. He has his routine down, and he plugs in his headphones and his microphone, turns on the piano, and finds the preprogrammed songs that he likes, and then he sings with the piano. He can do this for hours! He was funny last night because he did not want to play with the other kids in the basement. He just wanted to play the piano.


Since he was a baby, Brayden has always sat on his feet in such an interesting position. They point out to either side. I just think it looks extremely painful, but Brayden insists it is the most comfortable way to sit. I caught Clay with his feet in a weird position, so I had Brayds go and sit next to him so I could snap this picture.


And here are the rest of the pictures that I liked. Enjoy them! And thanks to everyone who remembered my birthday and have called me today. It makes me feel so special! Big shout out to Amy, who called me 3 - count 'em, 3 - times.
