It is so nice to have the Temple so close by. We can get there in less than 10 minutes.
Eric even says he can see the Angel Moroni from our street. I still havn't spotted it.

We have really enjoyed having people over to our place for dinner. A couple of Sunday's ago we had the missionaries over along with some friends we have met in our ward. From left to right we have...Eric, the missionaries, our good friend Matt Robinson who oddly enough before we knew who each other were, he checked us in at our hotel when we were here in Washington for our Wedding Reception. Small world huh? Then there is Brett Smith and Kristen Stone. She is the one who made the amazing looking dessert you see on the table. We love Brett and Kristen!

Me and the Mosaic crew. I work with wonderful people.

FEAT is an organization that helps families who have children with Autism. They recently held a fundraising even at the Hyatt in Bellevue. Andrea Sims, the owner of the clinic where I work, invited myself, my co-workers, and our guests to the event. We enjoyed a nice dinner and watched as the organization raised over $500,000 to help these families.

Me and my handsome date :) Thanks Heidi, the shirt and tie look great! `

That's right, I'm sewing. Mom and Granny got me a sewing machine when they came to visit. And just after that a service project was announced in Releif Society. We were to make colorful balls for the kids in Ecuador. Every year dentists go down to help out and I guess our ward supplies toys for the kids to help with their visit to the dentist. I'm getting the hang of it, although it is not easy. I plan to keep trying, I'll have to if I plan to sew as good as my grandmothers soome day.
