February 2024

It has been a fun month and fast month. One big highlight was I was called to be the Baptistry Coordinator. Lynn brought Alyxibeth. I was so excited that she brought her.

We also had a snow day. Which was a lot of fun. It was really great that it was a Saturday so we could play all we wanted.

Just before Christmas Aubre was in an accident and hit a deer. Insurance covered the car and we were able to buy another minivan. James was amazing and found a company that took the van to Aubre for $900.

I can’t believe my own mother tried to kill me.

Back when we were doing seminars we would talk about the importance of food. To share the idea we would share this video from the Red Green Show. The skit we would share starts at 13 minues and 30 seconds into the video.

Papa loved the Red Green show. If you have never watched it I highly suggest it. It pokes fun at men and manhood. “I am a man, I can change, if I have to, I guess.

How to find happiness

I just watched a video online and it really hit me on how to find happiness in this life. In the video Calyann referred to a scripture:


and he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile.

Book of Mormon: 2 Nephi 26:33

Calyann said pointed out that no matter what you do or who you are God (Heavenly Father) will always love you and always be there for you.

In the video Calyann said to read a chapter or two in the Book of Mormon and it will bring happiness to your life. I know that when I need happiness on my life simply reading the Book of Mormon will bring happiness to you too. The wonderful thing is that the Book of Mormon is available online and you can read it anytime at : https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/scriptures/bofm

Here is the video to see how the Book of Mormon helped Calyann find happiness:

“I heard a SNAP”

Alyxibeth was jumping on the trampoline and John came from behind and “stole her bounce.” Alyxibeth collapsed and said she heard a snap in her leg. We went out to the and she was cradling her leg. Amie called Jacob and he came over and put a splint on her leg. We took her to the ER the next morning for X-rays and a splint. We have an appointment on Monday for her cast.
