Here are some pictures of a bird that took flight at the lake. I am so glad we live so close and can get away on the weekends. After we get done with school we will be able to go out any evening in the summer as well.

Where Will He Go?

Scott puts his mission papers in either this week or next week. We are excited for him. I had a dream two nights ago that he was going to be called to the Dominican Republic. We will see if I am right. Where to you think Scott is going to go?

Lemon Meltaways

My Primary kids get to try different things that I make. I tend to make cookies for them about once a month. I try new recipes on them. They generally eat anything I'll make. lol Today I made some lemon cookies that my Aunt Susie had a recipe for. They are sooooooooooooo delicious!!! Here is the recipe. My kids will enjoy these tomorrow. :)

Lemon Meltaways
3/4 C. cornstarch, sifted
1/2 pound butter (two sticks)
1/3 C. powdered sugar
1 C. flour
Beat butter and other ingredients until creamy. Spoon small (quarter size) dollop on cookie sheet - bake at 350 for 10 minutes Let cool and frost.

Lemon Butter Frosting
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons milk
In large bowl, beat sugar, butter, juice, zest until smooth - beat in milk and increase speed and continue to beat until light and fluffy. You may need to add a little more milk to make this frosting a little runny and then drizzle it onto the cookies.

John took this picture at Saguaro Lake over the weekend. The duck has a mohawk and red eyes. There were actually a couple of them swimming together. Whenever people get too close to them, they duck under the water. It is pretty neat to see.

This Weekend

We had our brother-in law Ben up for the weekend. He was only going to stay until Friday...but we were able to talk him into staying an extra day and going out on the lake with us. It was a lot of fun. I think that I am finally getting a tan. :)

Becky needs smooth hands
Becky needs three cups of herbal tea
Becky needs to leave early
Becky needs a friend
Becky needs a Shamrock Shake
Becky needs a place to live
Becky needs help
Becky needs an aerobic machine
Becky needs enlightenment
Becky needs a Face Book

I think that my favorite one is the Shamrock Shake. :)

This past week, I had my camera at work for some reason. I usually use John's cameras, but I found my digital camera and had fun. I was being kind of obnoxious with taking photos. Here are some pf the pics. :)
