Here's a little diy for Valentine's Day. I am in LOVE with ALL things where a cloche is involved. Problem: Cloches are costly and hard to find the size you want if you're thrifting. Solution: Plastic Dollar Store Wine Glasses and Marbles!
Begin by cutting the stem off of the wine glass with a small saw. Don't worry it's super easy because the glass is plastic. Just make sure not to squeeze it too hard while sawing. It will crack the glass - don't ask how many times it took me to figure that out. Use hot glue to attach a cupcake liner lid to the top of the stem. Flip the glass over (fits perfectly into the cupcake liner lid) and hot glue a clear glass marble into the hole left from removing the stem. That's it! A CUTE mini cupcake cloche for pennies! A mini doily would also be cute on the plate under the cupcake. Walmart sells great mini cupcakes that fit perfectly!
I forgot to bring the address of a sister that I visit teach when I went to bring her a loaf of bread so I randomly stopped at a house and knocked at the door hoping it was her. Luckily her husband said I had the right place. When she walked out, my stomach hit the floor. This was not the same sister I had been visiting teaching. I have been visiting an Asian lady who lives on the same street at the address I was given by the relief society. Our visits were always awkward and she never invited me in. I never could figure it out until now... She had no idea who I was. I don't even know if she is LDS. She probably thinks I am some sort of psycho stalker. I am mortified! That poor woman! I so want to apologize to her, yet I hope I never see her again, I am so embarrassed. WOW. As for the girl I am supposed to be visiting, I have been standing her up every time I call to arrange visits and end up showing up a few houses down the road at her poor unsuspecting neighbors house.
I was so flustered when the woman I am supposed to be teaching came to the door and I realized I had been visiting the wrong woman, I just left her with the loaf of bread, explained my blunder and drove off. I wonder what she thinks of me.
Faith is 7 and growing way too fast! Faith is our little pleaser. She LOVES secretly making people happy (o: She's also got a dangerous crafty side!
Our sweet little Rahel
This is our little teddy bear home forever. She just turned 4. She is very quick and already has English down pat. Her feet have grown 4 sizes in 5 months! Rahel is the most loving little girl we have ever known. We're so lucky to have her in our family!
Our little twig on the Lemon Family Tree
My sweets with just the right amount of sour!
Faith: Mom, can you sign me up for soccer? I want everyone to see my super kicks!
After every verse of scripture is read during family study, Faith always asks “what does that mean?” Tonight, Rahel decided she had the answer for Faith’s question: “Jesus cooks” while doing stirring motions with her arm.
Faith: See? I told you that stuffing the blankets in there would be better than folding them!
The squeaky dinosaurs use their squeaks to find nice friends. - Faith
Where's my swimming soup? - Rahel
Upon dropping her dinner in her lap, Rahel exclaimed "Dain it Rahel"
Faith excitedly pointed at some hummingbirds and said "I know what those are! Baby woodpeckers!"
Every time we drove over a cattle guard in the Uintas, Faith would announce "there's another cow trapper"
Faith found a bug and ran through the house yelling "where's the bug smacker, where's the bug smacker"
Faith was freaking out as only a bug could bring on, and when we asked what she saw, she told us that there was a "sox elder bug" outside!
In the car, Faith announced: I am smart and a cutie!
Please share these with as many people as you can. Education is so important. I know everybody is curious, especially those of you who will be in close contact with Rahel. This is a very informative article. It's a little long, but worth reading to the end.
