"Quilting" Lost Mountain Ward Style

Here are some highlights of the Service Project we did for Tranquility House. We were able to tie 4 quilts. We could not have done it without the help of many hands. Thanks go out to all who contributed, especially Karie Cheney, Janalee Wood, and Karie's mom, Sister Buttle. They spent so much time putting these quilts together to get them ready to tie. And thank you so much to Kathyrn Miller for getting this all organized. What a great idea! The activity girls joined us and learned so much. We appreciate Julie and Jenny for bringing us all together, and for the work they did to help us get it all ready.

It took many teachers, but we got the job done.

Some of the Activity Day girls worked on another sewing project. They were able to practice their stitching. Jenny Woods was a great teacher.

Silver Comet Trail

We had such a nice time on the Silver Comet Trail on Friday. The weather was divine and the company even better. The fall leaves were absolutely gorgeous. Here are a few highlights. Oh, and the sister you don't recognize, that's my sister, Lindsay here visiting me from Utah. She was so complimentary of all the friendly people in Georgia.

Everyone is pushing everyone else's children. It's so confusing!

Kathryn tried to take a picture of me, taking a picture of her. And here come the strollers! No, Lauri hasn't had a baby; she's helping out Ali, by pushing baby Boston.

Karie and Kimberley brought their bikes and kept circling back to check on the rest of us.

Cathy and Renate took off WAY down the trail never to be seen again. Hee-hee! Just kidding. They were serious walkers, just truckin' along. Go girls!

Bread Making at the Owen's!

At the home of Heidi Owen, we learned the fine tips of making homemade bread using our wheat!

Thanks Heidi! The dough is rising...

Tonight it was all done by hand. You don't need that mixer!

Standing room only - so many want to learn!

Well, we like to socialize too!

This dough needs more flour, right Jessica?

This dough is still not quite right, add more flour!

Jency was there to learn!!! Hands on!

Wanda was so excited to take some dough home and try it.
Hope you like it Paul!

Emily knows all about bread making - we appreciated your tips!
She was checking the elasticity of the gluten.

Heidi says this dough is the right consistency!
We all had a great time and learned a lot!

Swing your Partner!

The square dancing activity was a hit! Everyone that came had a great time. Kinley Shell taught us the dances and called it out. The enrichment committee decorated and provided light snacks. What a fun idea for a date night! We hope to continue some more fun ideas for dates. Thank you to everyone that came and helped out.
We had some fun fall decorations, thanks to the Enrichment commitee combining their decor from home. It looked festive and fun.

Terry and Heather Strickland dressed square dance style for the occasion. Lookin' good guys!

Kinley was our "master caller." He did such a great job

Bow to your partner!

Bro. and Sis. Goett kept Mason company while his mommy and daddy were busy "cuttin' a rug!"
