Flying in an airplane hight above the clouds....

the more we get together...

Just a few photos from Krystal's birthday party, the first one with her soon to be new family.  Bruce's family invited us to their home where we ate yum yum yummy food.  Michelle (Bruce's sister) made Krys the most awesome swiss chocolate cake with whip cream icing, filled and decorated with fresh strawberries. 
The Balls Family are all blessed with beautiful singing voices.  They sang the prettiest Happy Birthday To You we have ever heard, completely harmonized.  Then we demonstrated just how UN-talented we are by singing our pitiful version of the song.  They were very polite, the only comment made was "Oh My!"  We had a wonderful time celebrating with Krystal and Bruce.  The cute little blonde boy in the candle blowing out picture is Sam.

Name change coming soon

Krystal reminded me that when she and Bruce tie the knot the HCH crew will no longer be.  She's right.  So I decided on a new family logo, or whatever it is I do.  The new name will be as follows:
HEBNER have HOWARD CALL the BALLS.  I understand it is a bit long, but it does include  all our names.  The change will be in effect June 26th.  Just so you know~

Sew Sweet

No I didn't spell the title wrong.  I want to talk about sewing.  I am very blessed with the ability to sew.  I'm not the best mind you, I just get by, but I enjoy it so much.  I'm grateful my dad insisted that I learn to sew.  It has been a blessing many times over.  Lately I have been sewing for Krystal's wedding.  I didn't get to do that for the other two girls, I was working full time back then and in the Young Women's Presidency so I couldn't fit sewing into my schedule.  I have enjoyed making dresses and skirts for all the girls.  I just hope they like them and that Krystal will be pleased  I would hate it if she were disappointed. Here is a list of the  things I have made with my sewing machine in the past.

1.  little girls panties
2.  swim suites
3.  a fur coat for Kimi
4.  halloween costumes
5.  repaired the trampline mat
6.  levi quilt for Gary
7.  dresses for Easter, Christmas, Church, Baptism & Blessings
8.  camoflage pants for Gary
9.  aprons
10 pot holders
11 prom dress
12 bride's maid dresses
13 curtains
14 recovered a couch

These are just a few of my projects. And I keep finding more.   Yes, Sewing is So Sweet!

It's Spring Again, the birds are telling me...

I looked out my window and what did I see,  POPCORN popping on an apricot tree...
Literally I look out my kitchen window and blossoms are popping right before my eyes.  I love this time of year.  All the trees in the neighborhood are in full bloom.  Pink and white puffy flowers.  Of course Gary and I are sneezing all the time, but looking at all the beauty makes it worth all the trouble.  This time of year we pretty much can not survive without  allergy tablets.  It has been very windy also, which keeps me indoors most of the time. Too much stuff flying around.  I know everyone everywhere gets to look at pretty flowers drurng the spring, but I just have to take a picture of this sight every year. 

It's a beautful day in the neighborhood!

This is so very much pretty!

I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

                   Church Headquarters, Salt Lake City, Utah  Temple Square   September 2009

The last time I visited Lynda Call we visited the Conference Center.  As you can see from this lovely picture
we had a wonderful time together.  The reason I post these pictures is because one of the two best weekends starts Satuday, April 3.  CONFERENCE WEEKEND.  Yippee Yahoo!  I love to watch conference and hear all the leaders speak to us.  When the two of us were walking around looking at the flowers after dinner, Lynda stopped in front of the Church Headquarters Building and began singing:

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
I know who I am.
I know God's plan.
 I'll follow him in faith.
I believe in the Savior Jesus Christ,
I'll honor his name.
I'll do what is right;
I'll follow his light
His truth I will proclaim.

Now each time I hear this song sung in primary or see a picture of Temple Square and this building  I think of Lynda singing and it makes my heart sing.  Thanks Lynda for your example. 
I too am  proud to be a member of Christ's true church .
