|Dad, Sister Paulson, Mom, me. Thomas had to work. This is across the street from the MTC.|
|Our little missionary - she left the MTC last week for Louisiana.|
We got a great deal on strawberries, which made for some perfect pink smoothies.
|For Valentine's Day, Thomas got me some beautiful Peruvian lilies. I made truffles and a candy box for him. On top of that is a rose I crocheted. I also made some crocheted heart garlands but we didn't get any pictures...|
|On Valentine's Day, a couple in our ward invited us to a dinner activity for the Special Needs Activity Program (their church calling). This is Sister Johns and her son Micah. We had a great time and loved learning about the "SNAP"!|
|This was our 5th Valentine's Day together-- crazy, huh?|
|I started reading The Infinite Atonement, a gift from a friend in our ward.|
|We took a walk the other day when the weather was nice last Tuesday and snapped a picture of the Provo City Center Temple construction progress.|
|We also stepped inside the new Provo Convention Center. We might have explored a little but there was nobody around.|
|We checked out the Covey Center for the Arts gallery for the first time in ... probably a couple years, sadly.|
|A graduation gift from Thomas' parents!|
|Now I need to decide on a good break-in project :oD|
|After the temple, we had pizza and root beer floats together (with Samuel, too).|
|We went to an indexathon hosted by the Vineyard (BYU chapter) that Samuel invited us to.|
|On our way home we briefly checked out the new venue in the Wilk, The Wall. It's a project Thomas' uncle worked on.|
Other than that... well... we've been working and doing the usual stuff. I'm back to full-time hours. Work for both of us has changed buildings so it's been hard to establish a normal routine this year. We've been trying to eat healthier and exercise - I do my Leslie Sansone walking DVDs and Thomas has been playing basketball on Saturdays.
We still teach the 14-15-year-old Sunday School class. We've been implementing the new curriculum, Come, Follow Me. Today, we had a lesson on Doctrine and Covenants section 76, "the vision" of the post-judgement degrees of glory. The best part for me was when one of the students read verses 103 and 89-91 and testified that God is merciful and loves His children because even those who do wicked things ("liars, and sorcerers, and adulterers, and whoremongers") may receive a glory "which surpasses all understanding". Very very awesome.
