Valentine Activities

I had a busy weekend. At work on Friday the 13th, I hosted the clinic's 3rd Annual "Death by Chocolate". The staff makes chocolate desserts and we have a panel of judges vote the top 3 for prizes. The last two years I have placed 3rd both times. This year I fell short, and I thought I had my best dishes ever. Yes, dishes, I made two dishes. One was a classic "Texas Sheet Cake" and then I tried a new recipe, "Chocolate "Berried Treasure" Bars. They were good but not good enough, obviously. The winner was a peanut butter/chocolate cookie. A cookie beat me out!

Saturday morning on Valentine's Day, Page and I had a nice breakfast down at Pepes. They have the best breakfasts in town, in my opinion. It was nice to go out to breakfast with my sweetheart. The rest of the day we were busy preparing for a Ward Activity. We are in charge of activies/socials at church. Saturday night we planned an Adult's only party. We had people bring either desserts or appetizers. We provided the punch, and we had dancing, party games and karaoki. Let's just say I had no idea how many wannabe singers we had a church. It was a lot of fun.

Sunday was our day of rest. We were tired and sore from all that dancing. I hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day too.

I love ward kareoki (sp?). It is such a riot every time!

Two things! 1--is your plan to drum up more business for the clinic with the whole chocolate thing? (yum, I could really go for some now!) 2--I still remember Jeff and I singing "Don't Go Breakin' My Heart" at your Lakewood house when Jeff realized belatedly how high Elton can sing! Good times, wish we'd been there. Well, I do, Jeff usually can pass on karaoke but he does like chocolate!

I stumbled across your blog on LDS BLOGS. I thought you mighe be interested in a site my wife and I just built called, which uses simple, explanatory videos to explain the Mormon faith. Feel free to feature any of these videos on your blog, or just share them with non-member friends. We're hoping these videos will be missionary tools to help members share their beliefs. Anyway, sorry to spam your comments section. I couldn't find any contact information for you on your blog.
