Temple Square Trip #3

My Choir (UVU Chamber) performed at Temple Square last Saturday. In between performances Ryan and I went over to Christus Statue where we met a sister missionary. Not surprising, there are tons of sister missionaries all over temple square. What did surprise me was the little flag under her name tag. This sister was from China. I had to stop and ask her where she was from of course. Sister Gao is from Beijing and is serving a full-time mission in the United States. How it warmed my heart to see a beautiful sister from that wonderful country that I love. I was in awe the rest of the night. It's that much closer. I am so excited for the Church to be spread around the world. I miss China with all my heart. I cannot wait to go back and hopefully I will be allowed to share the wonderful message of My Savior Jesus Christ.

Happy Haircut

I cut Ryan's hair for the first time. My first time using buzzers. I had no idea what I was doing but he's only slightly bald on one side of his head. I think I did a fairly good job, but maybe I'm biased. ♥

Temple Square

Scott, Ryan#1, My Ryan (Ryan 2.0), and I got to go to Temple Square on Saturday night. I love seeing the lights on Temple Square. It always gets me in the Christmas Spirit.

Gone Fishin'

I have been going crazy over Fish. It all started about a week ago. Ryan and I went to the Orem Institute of Religion where we both won free goldfish. I named mine Spaz, he named his Kermit. The next day I bought a little 1 gallon fish tank for each of us, and rocks to put in the bottom. Ryan's Kermit had died, so we had to go by him another fish. We ended up buying 5 more fish, so we each had three. Ryan's fish were name Kermit *again, Santa, and Al Bore. My fish were Spaz, Puss (As in Puss in Boots), and Michael Bubble. All the fish died by Tuesday. We went shopping again. We bought a Betta Fish (Gonzo), 3 guppies (Kermit *yet again, Beaker, and Big Bird), 2 Tetras (Thing 1 and Thing 2), and 2 Danios (still don't have names - any suggestions?). We also stole Nikki's fish (Buzz) and her 8 gallon fish tank. The fish tanks are all complete with rocks, and pretty marbles, live plants, fake plants, thermometers, filters, lights, water conditioner, and the big tank even has a waterfall.
This fish had better live more than a week.

I'm still alive, but my laptop isn't.

My laptop is dead. I have to send it into Apple to get it fixed. Good thing it's still under warranty. This is the reason for the inactive blog. I love you all!! I'll post some sweet awesome pictures and what not as soon as White Delicious (my computer) is better.

Latter-Day Sounds

I auditioned for a Fireside Choir today and I made it! I'm singing Second Soprano (wahoo!). I'm so excited to be a part of this choir. We will be traveling around Utah and performing spiritual songs that center on the Savior Jesus Christ. I've always known the power of music to bring the Spirit into a meeting and I'm sure my testimony of this will grow as I become closer to the Savior through music.

New Haircut

Whoa!! I cut my hair, probably a total of 6 inches or so! I kinda didn't mean to do that, but it's starting to "grow" on me (hehehe). What do you think??
