Daniel John Denning

I went down to Salt Lake Thursday because Lauren had her little boy. He is so cute. We had a great time taking photos of him. He has a little jaundice and has to have the bilirubin light on him for just one more day we think. He looks like he is brothers with James. 6 pounds 10 ounces. Congrats Lolly and Kip!

Forced Blooms

Some of the branches that I am forcing are blooming. It is so fun. It has really helped me to get through this last ugly month happily. I went and cut the branches from some local businesses. Kelly thinks I am a rebel. I didn't know that pussy willows pollinated? Weird

Dead Sparrow

I went out to the back porch to photograph my one pussywillow that is out and I found this dead bird.

Valentines Day Pj's

So my Dad said that the only thing missing from my blog are photos of Kelly and me. With that said I am posting another photo of Clara. I took it today. I have such a great time taking them of her. Taking photos is one of the only things I can do in the winter that doesn't involve money, a car, or/and being outside. Sorry about the redundency but it most likely won't be the last. Plus I really like it.

About Me

I got Tagged 3 different ones in the same day. Weird. I will do some of them when I get the incling. Here goes the first one.

10 years ago I was:
I was in the 8th grade, just coming out of that ugly stage. Before I had cheesy glasses, braces, big bangs. By 8th grade I had contacts strait teeth and long hair.

5 things on my 'to do' list today:
1. Make dinner
2. Fold laundry
3. wash the dishes
4. take care of Clara
5. pay some bills

Things I would do if I became a billionaire:
I would buy a house for Kelly and I, I would pay off my student loans. Buy a Toyota Tacoma and a Nissan Murano. I would got to Murano with Kelly, sorry folks, you just got back... I would buy our little family a whole new wardrobe. I would buy Kelly a new computer and me a large format camera, more lenses for my digital, and new furniture. Then I would donate a lot of it to the perpetual education fund and some to BYU-I photo department, Granite High School and Mill Creek Elementary. Then I think i would like invest it is the stock market and a lot of small businesses that need a jump start. I would put a lot of it away so we would be set for life. Then I would want to throw a family reunion in Europe. I could go on because a billion dollars is a lot of money but I think maybe after that I would be thoroughly prideful and not appreciate what I do have. Hopefully I can have most of those things in time and with a lot of work . Plus, I will keep my soul.

3 of my bad habits:
1. Sleeping in to late
2. not being very disciplined
3. spelling very poorly

5 places I've lived:
1. Panguitch
2. Cedar City
3. Iris Lane SLC
4. Melvina SLC
5. La Jolla Rexburg
6. Pocatello

5 jobs I've had:
1. Pride Cleaners
2. Photo Lab BYU-I
3. Title One
4. Great Harvest
5. Washington Federal

Something most people don't know about me:
I like Star Trek the Next Generation but I would never dream of going to a convention. I was way to obsessed with Harry Potter, I would get on HP Lexicon way before it was complete and any good and now that there over I don't think there as cool. White is my favorite color. I wish I could have majored in three things in collage, Accounting Economics and Photography. I did a two year degree in photo (should have done 4 years) and an extension in business (waste of time except the econ classes that i took and the accounting class. It wasn't a waste complete waste of time because as a result I found out I should have done something else.) :)

Valentines Day

Kelly gave me a dozen roses for Valentines day. I got him a soda mug that he wanted. Clara got PJ's. We all got new socks. We had a great evening at home. Blue Cheese Stakes, sauted carrots, salad, and potatoes, and mom and dads' grape juice. We also watched Senindipity. I love Kelly so much. I am so greatful for all that he does for me.

The first one is a pussy willow. The second I am not sure but I hope that it will bloom. I am so excited for spring to come so I can take Clara out on walks again.

Food Storage

I have been working on building up our food storage. I go to the dry pack cannery every month and buy all this wheat. It has been fun to explore different things you can do with it. Besides just makeing flour i have cooked it like rice, sprouted it and now I am growing it for a easter basket. I know it is a little early but I don't mind trimming it a couple of times. I am excited to dye easter eggs so I can hide them in it and use it as a display in Young Womens!

Young Women Mice

For Young Womens one of our girl's mother showed us how to make these Chocolate Mice. We had a really great time makeing them. They are a mericino cherrie diped in chocolate with a kiss as the the head and nose. The eyes are just black food coloring and the ears are peanuts. So easy so fun! Thanks Debbie and Tristin!
