I forgot.

Leo took me on a date that he planned himself for our 8th Anniversary. We went to the Springville Museum of Art and then out for Mongolian BBQ. Delicious. And the museum was great! Because of this:


The Museum houses the largest public collection of 20th-century Russian and Soviet art in the western United States. These remarkable works, mostly in the Soviet Impressionist and Soviet Realist styles, deal with political, social and economic aspects of the former USSR.

I love Russian Impressionist works. I've loved them since before I met Leo and I was on a date with another guy going to art galleries in Scottsdale. I saw them and fell in love. And actually the picture above, was one of my favorites in the whole museum.

Also, we're not moving yet. Hopefully next spring, Leo will have a job and we'll move then. I was just thinking about the future. That's all.

And Ana went to the BYU football game on Saturday night with a friend. Lucky ducky.

That's it. Chao.

Autumn Leaves

Kids and leaves are fun. And my husband is sweet. He planned a date and took me to the Springville Museum of Art and then out for Mongolian BBQ. Delicious!

Rock Canyon and kids

Last week walking home from church I enjoyed this lovely view.
I love the mountains.
I really hope we'll end some place by mountains--I would miss them so much. Sniff.

I mean really, our street looks like it ends right in the mountains. I love it.

And here's my crazy kids and the boys I babysit.

I think my kids are going to miss them like crazy when we move. They're practically siblings, we spend so much time together. Sniff. Sniff.

Religious Art

I've never been a huge fan of religious art. Not at all. But all that changed today at the BYU bookstore when I came across these by J. Kirk Richards. I would hang these in my house any day. Seriously, if I had an extra hundred bucks lying around I'd be so tempted to buy the one above. I like his work that much.

Well, maybe not. It is a bit depressing-the one above though is not at all depressing.

And this one, well, I like it too. So go see his website and look at Narratives of Christ and they'll be one called The Holy Family, that's actually the one I would buy, out of the ones at the bookstore anyway. And look at the In the House of Caiaphas. I love it. Really. It reminds me of Picasso's Guernica but with the gospel. Fascinating. I don't think it will make it to a Relief Society room though. Hee. Hee.

Elena and Isabel were watching a movie and then just Elena was watching.
So sweet. But really she's crazy. Trust me.

18th Century Stays

I made this for my sister Lindsay for her Halloween costume--she was a pirate--but I didn't get it to her in time. Surprisingly, it wasn't too hard to sew. I broke a pair of sissors cutting the heavy duty cable ties that I used for the boning though.
