February 2013

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!  This has been a bittersweet month for me.  I turned 64 years old on the 11th.  We spent it quietly with dinner out and some shopping.  Lee bought me a Kindle Fire for my birthday so I can download books to read.

We had planned to do a temple session for Valentine's Day and had our appointment made.  However, a recent convert in our ward wanted to do baptisms and needed some Priesthood help.  Elder Searle asked Lee if he could help him in the baptistry and of course he said he would.  So, Sis. Searle and I did the endowment session together.  Elder Searle and Lee where waiting for us in the Celestial Room.  I thought as I entered, "This is how it is suppose to be."  It turned out to be a wonderful night.

February 19th was transfer day for three missionaries in our ward.  Sis. Fetuli returned home, Sis. Graham and Elder Houskeeper were transferred.  Sis. Graham went to Hornell (full proselyting) and Elder Houskeeper is training a new elder in Henrietta.  All three will be greatly missed.  We had all the missionaries in our ward over for dinner before they left and had a great time.  They are all wonderful missionaries and work really hard.  They all touched our hearts...I doubt they realize how much we will miss them and what great missionaries they are.

Our last Saturday this month at the Joseph Smith Farm was BUSY!  We actually had lots of visitors.  A youth conference was being held at Seneca Lake Camp with about 100 youth and they toured all the historic sites Friday & Saturday.  Plus we had about 15 sisters meeting in the basement planning girl's camp for their stake.  Approximately 84 visitors and 68 took a tour even though it was snowing and sleeting.  Now that's what I call a good day!


  1. Sounds like things are picking up there! Spring thaw is just around the corner!

  2. Oh, I hope so....tired of all the snow!
