What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Pictures of Pumpkin Festival Manteca

We did't venture to the carnival rides this year, but I took some pictures.  You can see the ferris wheel form our bedroom window.  Miranda, Jeremy Tony and others when to the festival by the library, but I focused on Priesthood Session instead.

Annie's Baby Shower

Miranda and Charity hosted Annie's baby shower wile she was here last week.  Of course Sheri helped a lot as well.  I didn't realize they were so creative with the invitations.

Then the decorations reflected their theme, that of "Little Fox."

These were excellent, I tried the left overs

Party games

 Sheri says there were between 25 and 30 here, including both the Banks family and the the Wardles.  I didn't attend as they only invited women.  I was out in the Bay anyway.

Pretty Rainbow in Manteca

 It was hard to do this rainbow justice with my I-phone.  I couldn't get it all into one picture.  It in fact had a slight double rainbow reflection.  I saw this while home teaching.  This was this past Sunday.  We had rain Friday, some on Saturday and Sunday.  It really came down for a while on Sunday.  I had to sit in the car a while for it to slow down, which it did rather quickly.  With our drought situation a few more such storms are needed to fill the reservoirs.

Tony and I Visited the Halloween Store

The Halloween store is back in the  old Best Buy Building after going elsewhere last year.  Tony and I were that way one evening so decided to visit.  They have some pretty creepy stuff.  They have lots of costumes and props and make up stuff.  And then they have scary yard displays.  They scarecrow with the bowl of the candy creeped me out.  I knew it was going to grab me if I pushed the "push me" button, but it still scared me really good.

That's Tony

Happy Birthday Jeremy and Bronnie

 Family gathered to honor Jeremy and Bronnie's birthdays.  Bronnie is now two.  Jeremy made the cakes.  This was Saturday while Annie and Caleb were here.  Charity and Anthony came over as well.  SHeri bought pizzas and took the boys Birthday shopping.
