FHE with the Kinikinis

When we moved to Idaho Falls from Nampa/Boise, I knew I was going to miss my friends something terrible. When family isn't near, friends become substitutes. Lucky for me some have found their way over to my side of the state. We had such fun having dinner and FHE with Moses, Anita, Kaylee, and Lanaya this past Monday night. I certainly love living near all our family, but there is something about dear friends that just puts a smile on my face.

The Elders showed up just in time to join us for dinner and Moses's lesson. He reminded us all not to become immune to things that take our minds off Heavenly Father and used the analogy of how a frog sitting in cool water will stay if the temperature is slowly turned up. Next thing the frog knows, it's been boiled.

Moses taught us all how to make paper frogs and then we had frog races.

And speaking of friends and family, both Kat's husband and Aunt Eja are still in the hospital. Lizzy (Kat's friend) is keeping updates on Kat's blog and family members have started a blog for updates on Aunt Eja. www.ejaallen.blogspot.com

Jennifer P.- yes I have a music player. But it's not cool and themed; it's simply for me to turn on at night and listen to. :)

How did I miss this post? Hello Kinikini's! Anita looks so great! I sure miss Kaylee. She will always be "the bestest babysitter I ever had" in my little world.
