Snow in Highland

Shauna and Robert had dinner Saturday night at FRESCO (15th and 15th) in SLC with friends after seeing a great movie at the Broadway: "King of Donkey Kong" or some such title. We drove home in a snowstorm and woke up Sunday morning to a glorious sight. Snow in Utah does not stick to the roads as it does in Nebraska.

We attended Stake (diocese) conference and heard wonderful talks. I agree with Elder Butler, an area Seventy who earns his living as president of Jones Paint and Glass: "I can't imagine living this life without the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Our stake president Howard Bangerter, who earns his living as a computer security specialist, warned us about evil invading our homes via the internet, movies, etc. He also spoke about the "curse of prosperity" in our community and counseled us to be generous with our abundance. He quoted Jacob from the Book of Mormon that "pride in our hearts can destroy our souls."

Later, all of our local kids, Chris, Lisa and Gina and their spouses and children showed up for dinner. We were so busy we forgot to take pictures of them. We grilled steaks and had risotto and salad and Shauna's yummy brownies and sat around the dining room table and discussed everything from movies to the debate over school vouchers. Life is good! We just wish that James and Amanda could visit more frequently!
