In passing...

Another week has gone by. Highlights:

1. I've been systematically killing people at work... and they like it. For Halloween (my favorite holiday) I have been making headstones to put in the windows at work. Headstones don't mean much if they aren't for the people you work with, know, and love. And of course there are those that you just want to harass a little bit. The joke now is don't mess with catering or you'll end up with a headstone. I love it.

2. Diwali, the festival of lights. David, myself, Tawnya, and Isaac attending the Indian Festival of Lights last evening put on by the Indian Student Association. Thank you Tawyna and Isaac for putting up with it. The food was good, but the entertainment portion was long... we even left early and it was still long. But hey, didn't have to cook!

3. Jarom and Alex came to stay with us on Tuesday night. They were here in the "big city" to sell potatoes. We ended up staying up till 1 am. Everyone had a lack of sleep headache the next day, but it was totally worth it. So dang fun! And I bought custard cups and made individual molten lava cakes for dessert! Am I the coolest sister or what!

4. Mom and Dad also spent time with us, Friday night to be exact. After the shock of learning we had cancelled our cable ( I swear Dad lives for the news sometimes) they took us out to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Yummy and very filling.

All in all it's been a good week. Even today went well. We split our bulging nursery of 28 kids into two rooms and not once did I hear screams of displeasure emitting from either nursery! It was great. The nursery leaders didn't even look frazzled by the end of the day. Finally a winning decision! Woo-hoo! Perhaps the beginning of a winning streak? Let's keep our fingers crossed.


  1. It was fun! Thanks for the invite. I learned a lot. Like mime is really Indian...

  2. There is a Texas Roadhouse in Logan? Where? Did you see that I commented on your last post?

  3. Tawnya: We all had a good laugh at the office about the origins of mime... still don't understand that one.

    Heather: yes, Texas Roadhouse is right across from, Ruby Tuesday's. Just opened not to long ago. And yes i did see your last post, thanks for the book idea!

  4. Love Texas Roadhouse... my hubby and I actually went on a real date there..yummmm... could you make me a few headstones... I have a neighbor that could really use one :)

  5. gladly! Just send me the method of death and I'll get it taken care of... should be fun huh!

  6. Individual molten lava cakes? Delish!! Can you share the recipe? Always wanted to make those.
    Glad things are going well for you. Family visiting and deaths at work - what more can you ask for??

  7. Ha. And my nursery leader tells me that she can't handle the full two hours with seven children (and an assistant). I should send her your way.
