Hanzon Autumness Part 4 Savior of the World!!!

What an unforgettable, fulfilling, spiritual, amazing experience was to be part of the cast of Savior of the World last Fall/Winter. For those of you who do not know anything about Savior of the World, (quoted from "Savior of the World: His Birth and Resurrection was written by a council of seven Church members (Mormons) who consecrated their time and talents under the direction of the Church's presiding leaders. As a sacred musical drama depicting events surrounding the Savior's life, the production is foremost a testimony of Christ and His divine mission as the Savior and Redeemer of the world." I was so happy to be able to sing, dance, and act in such a marvelous production about Jesus Christ as one of Mary's cousins. Zane was SUCH a HUGE support in every way. I learned SO much, and met wonderful, talented, and spiritually strong people!!! I highly recommend everyone to go this year and take a friend. We had friends and family come, and it was a delight to enjoy it with them. Tickets can be found at after September/October.

Hanzon Autumness Part 3 The Making of the Gingerbread Houses

This was the first time ever that I, Nany, made a gingerbread house. I had no idea how much fun this would be! If you have never done it, I highly recommend it for this year! (by the way, I just noticed that there is a spell check in this thing...this will make things a lot easier!). However, you do need the initial help of the experts a.k.a. Fails, Provo Hanzons, and J&D.

We went to the Fails home for the Gingerbread House party along with Jimmy and his then girlfriend, Dawn, who stayed with us for a weekend, (now they are engaged in case you were wondering :) It was fun to visit with J & D and to go the MoTab Fall Concert with them. They make a very cute couple!
Kirsten did an amazing job at baking the house parts (which again, I had no idea you could do, since I had only seen kits at the grocery stores). I was SO impressed by Zane's craftsmanship! He really did an incredible job with our shingles, and I was assured that if we are every in need of a Wheat Thins roof, they will be top notch!

To be completely honest, I cannot remember who we gave the 1st place to...Kirsten and Haley remind me!!! could just judge for yourself! Behold our finished product:

Ps: Jimmy and Dawn had to go back to Vegas, they got the "merit" award.

Hanzon Autumness Part 2 Rach's farewell

Wow, it's been a while since we have updated our blog! To our faithful readers I extend my sincere apologies ;) A lot of fun stuff has happenned since last fall and we are very excited to share it with you!!!

Rach's farewell :(

My friend and visiting teaching companion Rachael Sims moved back to Florida with her husband, as her husband finished his internship with the church. We were very sad to see her leave but very happy that she would get to have her baby girl surrounded by family and friends.
With other wives from the ward we had a little get together with cake and gifts to wish her a happy trip.
Ps: Kat, LOVED the green star, hahaha!
