Star light, Star bright...

Friday Night I promised my li'l loves (Brooklyn & Dade) that we would sleep out on our, that's just what we did! It was our own little adventure...telling stories, listening for different sounds, counting stars and watching planes fly by. My other li'l love (Presley) joined us around 2:30 am, she wouldn't sleep for daddy. I thought for sure that we wouldn't make it through the night, but guess who didn't want to wake up in the morning...

This sleepy head!

Garden Party-Enrichment Night

Emily this is for you...and thanks for asking!

So this past Tuesday, March 19th, was our latest Relief Society Enrichment Night. We chose a garden party-gardening theme.

I asked a very sweet friend of mine to host it in her beautiful backyard, complete with chickens, coop and newly built raised garden. Thank you are the best!
-The party began at 7pm.
-Our hostess talked about her 4 chickens and building their adorable coop. How she built, started and has maintained her own raised garden.

-Barbara Harrison then gave a little class on freezer jam...we each got to make our own little 4 oz. jar right there to take home, delicious!

-Then, Cerise Gomez talked to us about when to start a garden, preparing the soil, some great things to grow in Phoenix and other basic gardening tips.

-To go along with the theme we had many sisters bring yummy desserts. We had lemon bars, home-made apple sauce with apple muffins, banana bread, fresh fruit, Yummy fruit trifle and strawberry cheesecake.
Here is the dessert table along with this flower arrangement that only cost me $5.We had home-made lemonade and a delicious
that is actually made with limes!Here are just some more fun pics I wanted to share...
