Smithfield Burglaries

It's true, folks. There were at least 40 homes burglarized in one night, and they were all in our Ward boundaries. The guys really had a thing going - two would enter homes that were easily accessible, take whatever loot they could carry to the curb, where they would leave it for the other two guys to come by in a pick-up truck and load it up.

The way they caught them? First, one of them left his wallet behind in one of the homes that was burlarized. Second, one of the men in the Ward heard someone in his garage in the middle of the night and went down to see what was going on. (Police STRONGLY advise NOT to do that!!!) Somehow he was able to detain the burglar while his wife called 911. (Actually, when she heard what was happening, she called down to her husband and asked if he wanted her to bring him the gun - they have no gun! But it scared the burgler into sitting still until the police arrived.)

The "caught" burgler ratted on his buddies and they were able to eventually round them all up. End of an exciting story in this otherwise quiet neighborhood.

Yes, we NOW lock our doors, although we hadn't been doing it until the burglaries. By the way, we NEVER locked our doors in Hendersonville until we put it up for sale and the realtor insisted we get a lock box and key. We had to have a key made because we didn't even have a key to the house. Interesting isn't it. We move to down-home, small-town Utah and instantly face the c rime spree of the century!

By the way, when are all y'all coming to visit us? We had a fun time with Andra and Jenny and the kids. Do you guys have pictures to post yet? I'll see if I can get some downloaded for everyone to see how much fun we had.

Love to all. See you at Elaina's baptism Saturday AM!

Will learned too early how to unlock the outside doors. This bothered his parents. His parents were concerned he would leave while the family slept. His parents decided that top locks on the door were in order. Will was very offended when his dad installed them, understanding instantly what the devices were for. Today Will came up with a solution to the problem. We only hope that he wants to stay with us.




Do Dad and Ramona lock their doors?????

Beach Picture ideas

Cindy Lynn came across a really cool family beach picture. http://cfhusband.blogspot.com/2008/06/kirschner-family-vacation-day-4.html If we did something like this we can print 12x18 prints at costco for about $3.00. And then I could make more frames! (After the wedding, that is.)

Oh what do you do in the summer time...


Well, knowing me and Brent it could be a zillion things, which is precisely how our day started. A meeting with a member of the stake presidency, helping a family move in, possibly swimming in a lake, planting some fruit trees Brent purchased a few weeks ago, finishing our garden boxes, etc... So, what DID we actually do???

Got called to be Elders Quarum President - check
Helped a new family move in- check
went to a neighbors yard sale
found a sweet deal ($10) on a pool with filter system
decided to clear some land and put it up
put down a quick patio in order to keep pool cleaner (only had the bricks for a year or two)....
Working on our kids fort out back with the neighbors who gave it to us

Oh well, the best laid plans, right? We ended up having a great day even if our plans and our Million projects changed a few times!

Fathers Day Talk

Hey all. I was asked to put a copy of my fathers day talk on the blog. Hopefully it will be some fun sunday reading! Enjoy.

In honor of Fathers Day I have decided to talk on how fathers bring happiness to their families. As I contemplated this topic I looked toward the example of our Heavenly Father. In every thing we are commanded to do, everything we are asked to learn, in everything we are to endure through this life we do in order to find true happiness and joy. So, how do Fathers bless their families with happiness daily?

In “The Family: A Proclamation to the World” it states:

Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.

Today I would like to share examples of fathers who lived by these principles in order to teach their children and bring happiness to their families. As I give these examples, I hope that each one of you will quietly think of the personal examples you have experienced in your lives, with your fathers and father figures, that could just as easily been used as examples in this talk

A Father brings happiness through faith. In the book of Mark we read an account of a father who, through faith, helps bring happiness not only to his child, but also his family. This mans son has had a sickness since he was very little, and so he took his son to see the apostles, asking them to take this infirmity from him. They couldn’t so he went to Jesus, explaining his problem and compelling him to have compassion and help if possible. In mark, chapter 9 verse 23 it reads…

Jesus said unto him, If though canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe: help thou my unbelief.

Through this fathers faith and the lords power his son was make whole. A father who has faith blesses his family with happiness

A father brings happiness through prayer. No one can doubt the power of the fervent prayer offered by a father for his children. In Mosiah 27 we read of the account of an angel appearing to Alma the Younger. In verse 14 the angel says”

Behold, the Lord hath heard the prayers of his people, and also the prayers of his servant, Alma, who is thy father; for he has prayed with much faith concerning thee that thou mightest be brought to the knowledge of the truth; therefore for this purpose have I come to convince thee of the power and authority of God, that the prayers of his servants might be answered according to their faith.

By communicating through prayer, Alma Sr. was able to express his needs for his family to Heavenly Father, and receive blessings, which helped his son and family have more success and happiness.

I can only imagine the countless prayers offered up by my own father for my siblings and me. Every choice we made, every night we stayed out late, every trial we experienced as well as every triumph we celebrated was likely doused with fervent prayers from a faithful loving father. A father who prays blesses his family with happiness

A father brings happiness through repentance. Early in the Book of Mormon we are shown the principle of a father repenting. We see this as Lehi begins to murmur, along with most of his family when there is not enough food, and he feels there is no way to obtain more. I think that most of us might feel like murmuring and this point. We might even feel justified in our murmuring even after food is acquired. However, this is not what happened with Lehi. After being chastised Nephi explains that his father was brought down into the depths of sorrow, only later being able pray to the Lord inquiring where to find food. This prayer was answered and the family was fed. What did his children learn from this experience? What do we learn from this experience?

A father who is able to admit fault, and ask for forgiveness or repent in front of his family can be a great teacher to his family. Not only does he teach his children humility, and what to do when mistakes are made. He also shows them that even when they make mistakes, or sins are committed, that there is a Father in Heaven who still loves them and will accept them as they come to him in their “depths of sorrow.” How much joy can this knowledge bring to every person? A father who repents blesses his family with happiness

A father brings happiness through compassion and forgiveness. Compassion and forgivness are simply taught in the parable of the prodigal son, found in Luke chapter 15. One son decided he was ready to get on with his life. He asked his father for his portion of the inheritance, which although probably very inconvenient his father did. The son then left and wasted his inheritance in unrighteous living. When his money, friends, abundance and finally food were gone he worked feeding pigs, and was still starving. At this point he thought about returning to his fathers house. He felt completely unworthy to be a son, however he thought maybe his father could accept him as a servant. This was his last resort; at least he knew that his father’s servants were always fed. In Luke chapter 15 verse20 it reads:

And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

I think that a great majority of fathers would have had a similar reaction, when seeing a son who had been away for any length of time, even if they had asked for their inheritance at an unlikely time. However it is what happens next where this father shows such great compassion and forgiveness

And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put in on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet.

And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost and is found.

Even after the son admitted unworthiness and showed the waste of everything, the father showed forgiveness, and compassion and love, willingly giving this son the best of everything his had, and celebrating his return. A father who shows compassion and forgiveness blesses his family with happiness

A father brings happiness through respect. In the book of Alma, After Ammon serves King Lamoni, King Lamoni listens to Alma’s testimony and is converted to the gospel. Because Ammon has become so close and important to the king he is invited to accompany him to a feast that is being given by Lamoni’s father. Ammon explains that he can’t. Heavenly Father has told him that the needs to go to a different part of the kingdom to help get his brothers out of prison. King Lamoni tells Ammon that he will go with him, in order to help free his brothers. As they are journeying to where Ammons brothers are held they meet King Lamoni’s father. Lamoni’s father is infuriated that Lamoni is with a nephite…the enemy. He is also very upset that Lamoni missed the feast because he was going to help release even more nephites from prison. He is so upset that he tries first to kill his own son, and then tries to kill Ammon. However, Ammon defends Lamoni, and then fights the king to the point where the King’s life is in Ammons hands. The king tells Ammon that he can have anything he wants, as long as Ammon will spare his life. And what does Ammon ask for. Only for the release of his brothers, and that Lamoni might be able to go back to his kingdom and rule as he thinks best without his fathers being displeased. The king was amazed that is all Ammon asked for. No treasures, no kingdoms, no wives. Through these events King Lamoni’s father gained a great respect for the love that Ammon showed his son. He also respected the fact that Ammon didn’t want to kill him, and that when given the chance to ask for anything, he only thing he asked for himself was the freedom of his brothers. He showed this respect by giving Ammon the things he had asked for, and later by listening to and accepting the gospel of Jesus Christ. King Lamoni’s father could have kept a hard heart, and chosen to go back on his word as soon as he was out of danger, but due to the respect he held for Ammon, he, his son and thousands of Lamanites were blessed with happiness as they accepted the teachings of Jesus. A father who shows respect blesses his family with happiness

A father brings happiness through work. Although there are many examples of a fathers work in the scriptures that I could use, I would like to share a personal story with you. My father is one of the best examples of hard work that I know. When I was (1) my dad decided that he needed to change careers. Something told him that he wouldn’t be able to raise this family of eight children on a teacher’s salary. So, with eight kids in tow, he and my mom decided he should go back to school. During this time my father worked to provide for the immediate needs of our still growing family, as well as our future needs. My dad would go to school throughout the day, and then study late into the night. In the early, early morning hours, if you could call 3 am morning, he would rouse a few of my older siblings and they would go perform janitorial work at nearby businesses.

I remember the stories of my father studying, holding a pencil over the edge of the desk, so that when he fell asleep, the pencil hitting the floor would wake him so that he could once again resume his studies. I also remember the stories of my mom tricking my dad into taking a short nap on the couch, with his head on her lap. While he was napping, she would cut his hair because he couldn’t make time for it anywhere else. My dad’s example of work has always been amazing to me. That work ethic has been helpful in the lives of me and all my siblings, helping us have better attitudes when things are difficult and enjoying work that is necessary in life. A father who works blesses his family with happiness.

A father brings happiness through wholesome recreational activity. Again for this principle I will use a personal example. My father was a great example of work, however his strength of example didn’t extend to wholesome recreational activities (sorry dadJ). I think Heavenly Father knew that I needed to see this principle applied in my life, and needed to experience the happiness it can bring, since I am a little too much like my father. So I was blessed with my father-in-law. I would call him the king of wholesome recreational activities. I have learned to golf, play in swimming pools, to make bubbles in front of fans. I have learned to play card games, board games, and an assortment of ball games. I have learned of family scriptures and singing, sharing birthday stories, embarrassing stories, and any stories that bring a laugh to others. I have learned that thanksgiving not only consists of eating dinner with one’s family, but it also includes basketball and other games at the church, endless card games, movies, a sleepover, a huge breakfast, followed by more movies, and maybe a round of golf if the weather is nice. And now, I really feel like my children are blessed to have a father, my husband who is an example of not only hard work, but who is also, just like his father, a king of wholesome recreational activities. A father who plans and participates in wholesome recreational activities blesses his family with happiness.

A father brings happiness through love. There are no better examples of love found in the scriptures than that of our Father in Heaven, and of his son, Jesus Christ. Heavenly Father has given us a plan that guides us so that we can find happiness in this world and throughout our eternal lives. He blesses us with families, friends and experiences that help us grow. He blesses us with prophets, the gospel and correct principles so that we will know where to look for support, and how to be happy. He also blessed us by sacrificing us his only begotten son, so that we could come back to him.

Jesus served all those around him continually. He was willing to show his love by suffering, and by giving his own life, submitting to the will of his Father, so that we could have eternal life which will bring us the most happiness forever. A father who loves blesses his family with happiness.

As I have studied, and shared these examples of fathers guiding their families using these principles, I know that here, in this very ward we could find countless and equally inspiring examples. Fathers who have had great faith, trusting in Heavenly Father to bless their families. Fathers who have prayed fervently for loved ones.

Fathers who have repented, teaching humility, and who have forgiven, helping children learn of Heavenly Fathers love for them. There are fathers who personify compassion and respect in their daily lives. There are those fathers who have worked hour after hour, year after year to support their families, and then come home to perform even more hours of service for their wives and children. There are those wonderfully playful fathers like my husband and father in law who bring a zest of fun to the lives of all those they interact with. Like our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ all of these fathers do these things out of love. On this Fathers Day I want to say how much I admire all of the fathers and father figures here, who live by these principles so that they can bless their families with happiness.

I can't stand it!!!!! I am about ready to self destruct. I have been trying to get this room painted for 3 weeks. And this is the resulting mess!!!!!
Three weeks you ask???? Yes indeedy!!! I will tell you the steps. Wet wallpaper with boiling soap water. Peel wallpaper, wash wall with boiling soapy water, scrape wallpaper paste gunk, wash wall with boiling soapy water, calk seams, mudd cracks, sand, prime and then finally paint,

But the their are the trim and the ceiling that have to be done before I can move the chaos back to where everything belongs!!!! It is making me nuts!!!!!


Goal Accomplished


In an effort to make my house more "finished"looking, I finally hung some curtains in the kitchen. I have had them for a few months. I figure that I would finally use them. Messy kitchen and all. Yippy!

Every afternoon when I look out at my "garden" I think that the squash & pumpkin plants have died. At first it really scared me. But then after the sun goes behind the trees they start to perk up, and by evening they look normal again. It's wild. And it's got me thinking. I'm sure there's a gospel object lesson here! What do you guys think?

A Hop Aboard the Bandwagon

I just wanted to let you guys know that I started a blog. I'm telling you so that if you're stranded in a broken-down elevator and have an internet connection, maybe it will provide some entertainment for you after all your YouTube videos have been exhausted.

It's all because of Uncle Ben.....


Living with Uncle Ben has definitely changed our ideas about fashion in Genola!
I was too scarred to take a picture of the high and tight on the 2 year old, but thought this represented just how much influence my little brother has on the Stowe kids!

Canoeing with the Paces . . .did you really want to?????

So, I thought I would send a million pictures of our families weekend canoe trip weather you wanted them or not. Here's Ike, ready to go. Im not sure if you really wanted these pics, just though I would send them to wake up the blog!
The whole family except for me. I am taking the picture. Oh, Levi isn't in this one either. But there are a lot of people, so most poeple would think its a whole family.

The girls readying their canoe. They can so handle this.

Levi is going down alone in the little green one. If it looks a little bunged up, its because once, when grandpa tied three canoes on the top of his ford Fiesta, this one came off and went bouncing down the road. But it still seems to work!!!

ND takes Nathan and the little boys. I wanted him to go with Levi, for the untimate safety for the little ones, but he said he could take it. By the end Lincoln had jumped out of the canoe, and was floating along in the river holding on the the canoe rope. But he does that every time.

Levi alone in his tiny boat.

The girls coming in a the end of the trip.

Another call for recommendations

Hey again. Well, I get to give a talk for fathers day! That is fine, I don't mind speaking, but that was all they told me. Talk on the topic of "fathers day." My problem is that is an awfully BROAD topic. So, what do you all think an interesting uplifting talk could be on, under that topic? I am getting nowhere fast, and my week is dwindling away.

BLACK BEAR SIGHTED AGAIN!

Alright... So at swim practice tonight everyone was talking about how the bear came back and how they saw it. I just decided to doodle around for a few minutes before I had to go to bed, and this is what I have up with. xD

I know, it really isn't good, with the white and they weird box at the top, but I didn't have enough time to go over it and fix that.











Keep going!!




















ALMOST THERE!!!!

My Garden


Laila's garden pictures inspired me to take some of my "garden" too. We have never tried a traditional garden at this house because when we moved here we had 3 one year olds...and then 3 two year olds, etc. And then by the time we might have thought about having a garden we had realized that there is NO place in our yard that gets much sun....except for perhaps the front yard right along the driveway. And I'm not sure I want a garden *that* bad! So anyway, last year I got creative. I had a half whiskey barrel in front of the garage that I'd planted flowers in before. I decided to stick a grape tomato plant in there as well to see how it would do. WOW! It was like Jack & the beanstalk--it grew so fast & furious that about ever week we'd have to break off the top of the plant! I picked off the last tomatoes the day after Thanksgiving when we had our first hard freeze. I call that a successful experiment! Here is a picture of this year's grape tomato plant. We've decided that this spot, although it gets no morning sun (which is supposed to be important for gardens) gets such heat from the combination of the garage wall & the driveway that it just grows like gangbusters.

I enjoyed my tomatoes last year so much that this year I decided to expand the experiment. Here is my pot on the back deck. It has a tomato plant (cherry--not grape--I'm branching out!) in it with my beautiful mandivilla flowering vine. Unfortunately the tomato plant seems to be outpacing the vine at this point! I also planted a zucchini in the same pot. I am fertilizing heavily in hopes that that will be enough to enable all of these plants to grow in the same pots! Next year if I decide to repeat the squash plants I'll get a burpee catalog and look for a variety that's more of a small plant--as you can tell, this one is huge!






Next the really experimental part of my experiment--yes indeed, the big plant on the right that is vining down onto the driveway is a pumpkin! And a very happy pumpkin it appears to be. It is in a pot with red petunias, a red mandevilla (which was small when I bought it and is hopelessly outpaced by the squash plants...very sad!) and a yellow squash plant. The last pot on the far left has a regular tomato plant, another squash plant, and more petunias. I am worrying right now that I will find out that I've planted a only male squash plants, and that I'll get flowers and no fruit...

For the last couple of years I've set plants on the benches on our deck--because almost the whole deck has benches there isn't any room for flowering things. This year Russ made some awesome shelves *behind* the deck railing for me, so that I can sit planters on them. So now when I look out of the kitchen windows can see beautiful flowers but they don't have to sit on the benches!

Black Bear, Black Bear, What Do You See?

I see the Rays,
Looking for me!























No, before you get excited I did *not* take this picture in our yard today. But not because I didn't have a black bear in my yard! We came home from the swim meet and Russ & I laid down for naps. (100 degree temps at the meet made for some tired & sunburned parents...) We hadn't been laying there even 5 minutes when there was someone POUNDING on our door and ringing the doorbell over & over. I thought it was the neighbor and was really irritated. Then I heard one of the kids open the door and my neighbor yelled "Is everyone in the house? There's a black bear running up the street!" Well that got me right out of bed!

It turns out that a bear had run out from between her house & the house on the other side, and then had gone down my driveway and into the woods while she was pounding on our door. She was afraid while she was checking on our kids that it was going to decide to come get her!

Russ said that he heard on the news that a black bear was seen in North Raleigh last week, so maybe this bear is trying to make his way to the mountains. I just hope it's not hanging out in my back yard!!!
Evan is beginning to have a complex. First, his grandpa dissapeared. Then his slobberbuddy Cole dissapeared. He is beginning to wonder - does he stink, not talk enough, wiggle excessively? Where are his peeps????

Our (finally successful) garden!

We have lived here for 5 years now, and gardens are not something we have been successful at. Our first year we did a garden out in our back yard...way out in the back behind our garage. We actually saw only one zuchinni, that was then eaten by some animal. Needless to say, we felt defeated and didn't try the next year. Last year due to the over abundance of dear that live just out past our back yard, we decided to try planting the garden directly behind our house. It worked quite a bit better, but was still a small and so so on the successful scale. This year we decided to try Square foot gardening, I think more because our neighbors have done it for years and have great success with their gardens. Luckily, they built a fence around their garden this year and donated their "box tops" to us to ward off the various animals (about a million of them!) We are really enjoying all of our little gardens! here are our peas (sugar snap and sweet) beans, and tomatoes.
Strawberries
Vanna and beans, squash, zuchinni, and peppers
Corn
Spinach and lettuce
And last but not least, our carrots, that will never get thicker than pencils due to Brents planting method (put as many seeds in a container as possible)

A little something for everyone!

Here are some pics that I thought you all would appreciate. Hope it makes your day a little bit brighter!



A little bit of itchy goodness (aka poison ivy) for Jeff and Jeremy....



A cute beachy outfit for Cindy


And FRESH salad greens, spinach, and peas, strait from my own garden, for anyone who likes gardening, or salad!

Hanging with Fiero!!!!!!!!

The unbelievable has finally happened!!!! We went last night to see WICKED. But after the show the kids went up the the house manager and asked if there might be any way we could get autographs from the cast. They directed us to the stage door and were really sweet wishing us luck. So we went and got to meet the actors who played Galenda, Elphaba, pfanny, and Fiero. We didn't get a picture of Galenda because I am an airhead and didn't remember that have a tiny camera in my purse just for reasons like this till after she had left. But she was really really perfect for the part, and also tiny. I guess this cast has a tiny theme to it.
Oh, the strangest thing! It turns out that all the times we were listening to the music at home Nate was really into it. And he had been youtubing the show forever, but I didn't know. We didn't get him a ticket, but he was crushed that we didnt' know how much we loved it. he was the one that came with a pen and paper for autographs (including for his school teacher) and really asked to go get them. Amazing what you don't know about your kids!!!!
The girl who played Nessa is married to the actor who played Fiero, so in our play he was not only cheating on Galenda, but on Nessa at the same time not to mention cheating on Jess and Brook!!! All the actors were so sweet. They were very humble, and the ones who wore more costumes were very hard to tell who they were. Elphaba was the last out (for obvious reasons.) They didn't say anything but when we asked for autographs and pictures, they acted so pleased. It was awesome. The fan group was only like 7 people, maybe they don't get hounded much. Just a for instance - -the other people there had called Nessa over, so we were getting her autograph, and Fiero just hung back. I didn't know his real name so I said, "hey Mr Nessa. . .we would love your autograph too." He said he like the Mr nessa thing, and that he liked signing autographs, but it was wierd because you didn't want to go up to people and say, "Hey Im here, do you want my autograph?" They were so sweet. The guy with the guitar was the lead guitar in the orchestra. He was sweet too.
Our Elphaba was super wonderful. Hard to recognise. We did it by calling her name which by then we had learned was Donna. When she turned around, we decided it was her. I cried like a baby through most of the performance. I know that is not a normal reaction. I was just so happy. Those of you who have seen it did a great job of not telling certain parts of the play. Like the end. When I saw then end I cried borderline hysterically for half an hour. for those who remember watching movies with me when i was young, you will remember it is pretty normal for me!!!!! Sorry about the red eye, if I fix them later, I might repost, but probably not!


Times when you are glad to be the mom.....



Even though you are sometimes embarrassed too.

super slide!


just came across this.

it's known as a positive reinforcement technique... i imagine it's used with a "good choices" sign on another slide and "bad choices" on this one...
it's really just a lesson of consequence.

hope it helps.
