lil shoes

Sometimes I have a hard time finding the right shoe size & color for Brighty. I started looking on Etsy and found a ton of cute lil shoes. I decided to try to make some so I found a pattern and here's my first attempt.

Lesson #37 lm1 part two

I glued this handout on the back of the Audrey Hepburn Poem. We talked about the importance of each of the 5 areas listed. The idea was found in the manual. I found the template for the cutout here

For the treat I made Orange Carrot Cookies (they don't sound good but they are TASTY)

1 1/2 cups shortening
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups mashed cooked carrots
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup walnuts

1-Preheat oven to 375 grease cookie sheets
2-in a large bowl, cream together the shortening, sugar, eggs. Then stir in carrots and vanilla. Mix well. add flour baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Fold in walnuts. Drop spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
3-bake 8-10 minutes until lightly golden. Cool and then frost with orange glaze

Orange Glaze
1-1 cup confectioners sugar, grate the rind of orange into bowl with sugar. Squeeze enough juice from the orange to make a thin but spreadable consistency. Mix until smooth. If necessary stir in more confectioners sugar. Spread onto cookies.

Posted by Picasa
props to my mom who painted this amazing picture of Audrey Hepburn!
My laurels really like old Hollywood. So I thought they would ♥ this poem by Audrey Hepburn. (found here)
I am tying it into the knowledge section of caring for our bodies, as well as adding a little bit about our heart.

Part 2 of this lesson is on it's way

YW lesson #36 lm1 The Importance of Truth in Living a Virtuous Life

This weeks Handout:
(provo canyon's bike trail)
"sometimes we think we can live on the edge and still maintain our virtue. But that is a Risky place to be."
I found this talk by Elaine S Dalton (2nd counselor in the YW presidency)

(click on above link)

D&C 25:2 "Walk in the paths of virtue".
Virtue encompasses modesty-in thought, language, dress, and demeanor. It is the foundation stone of chastity.
For their treat I gave the girls Trail Mix granola bars (Trails-paths) it's all I could come up with (:

Halloween Decorations

Getting started on my halloween decorating

Fall is in the Air

I have been Loving this cool Fall weather. I ♥ when the leaves start to change colors, and the mountiains are snow capped. The 1st day I thought it felt like Fall I grabbed my camera and headed up Provo Canyon. It started to rain on my drive up so I didn't get too far. But I got a quick picture of Bridal Veil Falls before it started to down pour!
