Science Fair time.

Jenna and her friend Vanessa with their project- Which brand of Gum lasts the longest?
After a long afternoon of gum chewing ( Yes I joined in and my jaw is still sore ) They came out with a winner and the winner is Orbit with a close second Extra.

Brady and his project -Swimming Raisins.
Raisins when put in a mixture of soda water and vinegar seem to swim. When the bubbles attach to the raisins and carry them to the top. Then the bubbles pop and it lowers to the bottom again.

Valentines Dinner Part 2...

It was such a fun evening of family and friends. Jenna did a really good job of serving our dinners.
The 4 course meal consisted of.
1st course caesar salad.
2nd course Creamy chicken noodle soup. ( which was to die for )
3rd course Steak or Chicken cordon bleu with green beans and the largest baked potato I've ever seen.
4th course pudding on a cloud desert.

Here is the group that came to our table.
Me and Zach, Debbie and Gary, Kyle and Gina, Jake and Anneli.
It was cake to sell the tickets we easily could have sold two tables. Maybe next year;)

For Valentines every year our ward holds a YW camp fund raiser Valentines dinner catered by BYU. This is the first year Jenna gets to go so she had a table this year. Normally we bought tickets from our friends the Harpers. So we knew it was going to be good.

Each girl is responsible for selling 8 tickets per table and then decorating and coming up with a theme for their table. Jenna of course loves Paris so that's how she decorated. Isn't it cute;) They are also responsible for serving us the delicious 4 course meal.

Below are some of the other girls tables. We have a large YW. I didn't get everyones only the ones that were there early to set up with us.

Super bowl 2011. As always we have a Super bowl party every year. It's lots of good food, good friends, and good family. With even more good laughs. We are not huge football fans we usually route for the under dog. But the main purpose is the Super bowl commercials.
