Way To Go Chalisse!

Today, Chalisse received her Young Womanhood Award and Medallion. This award is for completing all the Personal Progress requirements. Personal Progress is a goal-setting and achievement program within the Young Womanhood Recognition of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints. This program is roughly comparative to earning an Eagle in scouting. Personal Progress is focused around the eight topics or values of the LDS young women program. These topics are faith, divine nature, individual worth, knowledge, choice and accountability, good works, integrity and virtue. These values represent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' morals.
I am proud of you for all that you have accomplished. Way to go girl!

Man- i- What ?

Yesterday was my 17 miler day. I thought it would be nice to have a nice pasta dish as a carb booster. As my family sat around the table eating, Andrea said, "Mom, can I have some more maddie- cotti?" Carson, exclaimed, "It's not maddie- cotti- it's mandi- coddie!" Jensen being the older brother decided to let them both know that they were wrong and the correct name was, "manna-cotti". Chalisse rolled her eyes and said quite out loud, "It's manicotti!" Greg, being of sound mind said, "It doesn't matter what it is called-- just eat it!" And that is what we did.

Snow, Snow, And More Snow!

Ugh! I'm sick of snow. Mother nature is bound and determined to send more snow this week. If I was a skier, I might find some reason to delight in hearing that we should expect more snow.
The other day, I came home to find that Greg and the kids had built a snow fort. I thought it looked pretty cool! I'm glad they found a way to enjoy the snow.
