A cartoonist contributer to Meridian Magazine....whimsically amusing...

Arthur was not a trained meteorologist but he gave an accurate forecast for the night: It would be dark!

That was good for a chuckle...

Easter Joy...

I wanted to add this picture of this cute thing Kendra did for easter....

Dave, Penny and Jess....A Happy Easter!

Like mother, like wonder Penny is such a delight!

Things were a big wilder at the Wirig's...but the more frolic, the more fun....although here we see Carson's reaction to putting away the Easter Candy to go to Church!....

Carson's tendency to grumpiness led to Kendra's inspiration to give him an "Angry Birds" birthday is perfect!!!

Carson...we LOVE you!

Recently Read: The Goose Girl & I Capture the Castle

The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale

This is our book club's selection for this month...I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would...Ani is a much better role model for young woment than Bella (Twilight)...When reading LDS authors I always thinks it's interesting to look for LDS themes...Ani's knowledge that she started out as a Princess (I am a Child of God) even though in her present life she is "only" a Goose Girl gives her the strength to continue acting like a Princess who may one day be a Queen...

This book, published in 1948, was written by Dodie Smith...the author of 101's a charming book...I'm amazed I had missed this one. Dodie Smith was a well known playwright in the late 30's....I loved this thought....

...When I read a book, I put in all the imagination I can, so that it is almost like writing the book as well as reading it -- or rather, it is like living it. It makes reading so much more exciting, but I don't suppose many people try to do it. (p.26)
