How do these Spring and Summer months 
zoom by so quickly?!

August 15-20 - Cassia County Fair Week

Monday - August 8, 2016 - 

We drove to Twin Falls this morning.
We left our 2007 Buick Lucern at Premier Auto Group and drove away with a 2005 Cadillac Deville.  The year 2005 is the last year that Cacillac made a Deville model.
Good-bye Buick.
Hello Cadillac.
Two years older, but we are excited.
This Cadillac has 100,000 miles, but we're still happy to have it.  Rick Larsen has been looking for one for us since January.

Tuesday - August 9, 2016

We changed our car insurance and got the license plates changed for our different car.

Brian, Walt loves the model Corsair you gave him. His favorite pasttime now is to spin the propellor as he sits at the table.
My planner knocked the Corsair over and he didn't like that.
I will be really careful by his model plane from now on.
He has made many comments on how well this model is constructed and is intrigued at how well the propellor spins.

Wednesday - August 10, 2016

Went to the Temple for sealings at 11:00 a.m., then rendezvoused with Dale and Connie for the 3:00 session.

We ran in to two old and dear friends of Walts:
Bing and Kathy Parkinson who exclaimed: "You delivered all of our children!"  Then, he said: "It's made my day--no made my year--to run in to you."  They live in Carey, Idaho now.

Brent Larsen?? was also there with a grandson receiving his endowment before his mission to Chili, (need to check with Walt for the name)
who told Walt they are still so thankful that he as a new, young doctor in Burley knew just what to do for their daughter to have an emergency C-section that saved her life in child birth -- even tho she was not his patient.
Thanks, LynAnn Arnell, for hopping out of your car to volunteer to take this photo of the four of us together.
They soon may be changing the flowers, which are always so beautiful on the temple grounds.
I had mentioned I would like to have lasagna today. It was Walt's turn to choose the restaurant, and he chose Tomatoes.
Bless his heart, he knows they have delicious lasagna there.
Here's what was left of my order of lasagna.  We enjoyed it the next day for supper.
We love our time on Wednesdays with Dale and Connie doing a temple session together and then having supper.
Walt waited five years before his younger brother joined their family.  It was well worth the wait.  Now that five years difference in age isn't significant at all.
Those who knew their Dad, Raymond O. Peteren, can see his resemblance in his two sons--Walter Ray Petersen and Dale Clifford Petersen.    "Grampa Ray" is age 50 in this 1957 photo.  Grama Jane is 47.
Here's a copy of a page from Grama Rie's Book of Remembrance that shows the family of Ray and Jane Petersen.  Children: Bonnie, Phyllis Walt, Dale.
Don't you love the old-fashioned stickers that Grama Rie (Maria Smith Prescott) used to decorate the page with. 

Thursday - Ausugt 11, 2016

We didn't have a whole lot scheduled to do today.  I got a haircut from Jenny McGill at Salon Sensations this morning. Walt went this afternoon for a haircut at Dilworth's.  He misses Bob Beaver's Barber Shopped being opened.  It looks like Bob may have retired for good. He has a sign in his shop window that his knees are not doing well.

Friday - August 12, 2016

We did 10:00-12:00 with Kathleen Hedberg, our ward family history consultant helping us.

We drove over to Rick Larsen's Bighorn Sales to show him the Cadillac and ask him about the warranty on cars.  We have until August 22 to decide if we want to buy an 5-year warranty on it.  

As we drove by the Cassia County Museum, we decided to stop and go through it.  We haven't been there for several years.  It always brings back many memories of how our parents and grandparents grew up with the wood burning range, ice box, and side board.

Sunday - August 14, 2016

Today we partook of the Sacrament in remembrance of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  This symbolic of the body and blood of Christ.  It renews our covenant of baptism. What a blessing each Sabbath Day.

Jarom Carnahan, age 14, our youth speaker taught us how to gain a testimony.  It is done through the power of the Holy Gholst.  When we do His will and follow the Gospel, we will be blessed with a testimony.

Shelley Higgins spoke next.  She and her husband have moved to Burley in the past few months.  Her husband, Devin, is a new family physician employeed by the IHC Hospital.  They have five children, ages 9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.
They feel that they were accepted right away into the ward.

She said her assigned topic "Being Perfect" is difficult but important.Heavenly Father has great expectations for each one of us.  
1. Heavenly Father knows that work is sanctifying which helps us move alongto Him.
2. Heavenly Father needs our help in many things--like missionary work, family history work, and a miriad of other things.

He knows we can do it. Our responsibility is to make sure that we are doing what the Lord wants us to do.  As King Benjamin taught "All things are to be done in wisdom and order."  He doesn't want us to burn out.

We had the Carnahan family over for dinner.

Then taught them Lesson #7 for the Temple Preparation Class.

John and Mariel Melling invited us to the blessing of their baby at Ruth's home.

Here are the Priesthood men who were in the blessing circle for Brinley Melling.

At the close of this Sabbath Day we leave you with our testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
And tomorrow when I'm not so tired, I will share more.
