Family Night Fun and Learning

Matt and I have been wanting to find ways to improve our scripture study. So, a couple weeks ago, Matt asked our friends, the Woodwards, if they could give us a lesson for FHE on this topic. Scott Woodward is a Seminary Teacher, the YM President and a scriptorian to boot so we thought he would be well qualified to teach about this topic. Last week we had them and one other couple, the Vincents, over for Aebleskivers, Rice Krispie Treats and the lesson. It all went very well. As usual, the Aebleskivers were a big hit. After treats, we put on Junior's Giants for the kids inside and the adults went out on the patio for the lesson. The Woodwards did a great job taking a lot of their lesson from Elder Bednar's talk "A Reservoir of Living Water." If you are interested in learning some more effective ways to study the scriptures, check it out here. It was a fun night.

This week, for FHE, we decided to do something fun with the kids. We went with our friends, the Mays, to Nickelcade and then to Wendy's for Frostys. Yummy. The best thing about having kids is that you get to act like a kid again and do things like going to Nickelcade and getting excited about winning tickets for the chintzy prizes. I think the kids had a great time and the evening was a success when we had enough tickets to get the them suckers and a noisy whistle in the shape of lips. Good times were had by all.
