 Dear Kids,

Yay, it’s Super Sunday today!  We’ll meet at Nora’s house at 4 pm, if you can make it.  If you can’t make it on time, come anyway when you can.  Donna’s ward doesn’t get out until 3:30, so they’ll be a little late.  They have four wards in their building, so their late schedule is really late.

Our next book club will be February 12, and we’re reading Because of Winn Dixie.  I thought I’d just start it, and before I knew it I was done.  It’s that kind of a book.  I’m sure I’ll be reading it at least one more time before we meet.  And if you get a chance to watch the movie, it follows the book really closely.

Dad and I went to the Provo Temple Friday afternoon, and for the first time I had made an appointment on line.  It all worked out so smoothly I was amazed!  No wondering if we were going to get into the session!  And besides that, we got to go in first.  Last time we went Dad ended up being the last person on the last row.  Friday he was the second person on the first row.  Needless to say we’ll be making appointments from now on.  Lots of people are going to the Provo Temple these days, probably because they’re going to be tearing it down pretty soon and re-building it.  Yeah, I know it looks like a birthday cake, but I love it because Dad and I were married there.  I’m sure the new one will be beautiful.  The Heber Temple isn’t even started yet, so it will probably be four years or so until it’s open.  The Taylorsville Temple is coming right along–maybe we can start going there.  It’s right at the intersection of 47th South and I-215, so it will be easy to get to.

Sonia’s behaving herself better these days, probably because we set up a litter box for her in the garage.  She used to always go under the back deck, but I noticed it’s all snowed in and no cat could get under there.  No wonder she was pooping on the brown carpet.  It was partly my fault.  These cats must get frustrated when we humans don’t see things their way.  

Vanessa’s family stayed over here Friday night because they were going skiing at Deer Valley yesterday.  (Cousins’ day.)  It’s always fun to see them!  Sonia usually makes herself scarce when we have company, but she remembered that Vanessa’s family really admires her, so she put herself right in the middle of everything.  She had plenty of admiration.

I hope you’re all doin’ great and lovin’ it!  Lots of love, Mom
