What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?

Just a little something for you... What are you doing New Year's Eve?

The first video is The Carpenters, my all time favorite version of this song (also love Ella's). The second video is a new favorite version of this song. Who doesn't love Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt? I know I do!

Foodie Friday: Orange-Ginger Cream Scones

I meant to post this a lot earlier but had some technical difficulties! 

I excited for this guest post today from my friend Lindsey, she blogs over at Cafe Johnsonia. Her recipes are fabulous! Lindsey is also a contributor over at Simply The Sweet Life Magazine (Free and Digital!). It's a beautiful magazine and the food is always amazing! Lindsey also happens to be at least as sweet as these scones! Enjoy!

Orange-Ginger Cream Scones 

Makes 12 large, or 16 medium, or 24 small scones 

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
5 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cold and cut into tablespoons
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. heavy cream, divided (can also use whipping cream, it doesn't matter)
1 large egg
1/4-1/2 cup candied ginger, chopped into small pieces
zest of 1 orange, 
finely grated raw sugar, for sprinkling

 Whisk the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender, your hands, or two butter knives, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the butter is in pea-sized pieces. Add the candied ginger and orange zest. Stir a few times to distribute it through the dry ingredients. Stir the 1/2 cup heavy cream and egg together in a small bowl with a fork until well blended. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add the cream/egg mixture all at once. Use a fork or spatula and stir just until the flour is moistened. Use the fork or spatula to push the dough against the side of the bowl a few times to pick up any dry bits of flour. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Form into one 8" or 2 smaller circles, depending on how large you want your scones. Cut the circle(s) into wedges to get 12 large or 16 medium, or 24 small scones. Place the scones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Brush the tops with the reserved 2 Tbsp. heavy cream and sprinkle the tops with raw sugar. Bake at 425 degrees F for about 10-12 minutes, check at around 8 minutes for the small scones. Serve warm or room temperature.

 **I like mine with a bit of marmalade or clotted cream.

Christmas Miracles, by Prism

I have the lucky fortune of knowing this woman very well, always wise and loving, I am excited to share a little bit of her with you, here. Enjoy! 

Christmas Miracles 
Guest post by Prism 


I have stopped listening to “The Christmas Station” on the radio. I used to love to turn it on in the background to help me get into a Christmas-sy mood—but now it just enrages me, so I leave it off. 

There is a simple explanation (and no, it is not my hormones making me madder than David Banner on a bad day!). It is that some of the greatest music ever written is about the birth of the Christ Child—and very, very little of that great music is played on the radio. Instead, we are subjected to the worst twaddle of the twentieth century (and yes, I am referring to Wham’s nausea inducing “classic” “Last Christmas”or the electronic saccharine of “Do They Know It’s Christmas”

 Apparently 1984 was the bottom of the barrel, song-wise—except that was the year that Mark Lowry wrote the words to “Mary Did You Know” (although it took another six years for someone to set it to music).

 In this song, the author, Mark Lowry cites a laundry list of disabilities and sorrows that the Savior miraculously healed. Most of us know or have interacted with people who were blind, deaf, crippled or lamed in one way or another. When I was young I wondered if being “dumb” or mute still existed, because I had never met or even heard of someone who was mute. Very few people have.

 Now I am the mother of one.

 Partially the reason we don’t hear about it is that the name has changed. Now it is called being “non-verbal”—which is actually more accurate. My daughter can not speak, but she is FAR from being the silent creature that the word “mute” implies, and, while she has neurological and developmental issues, no one who has ever met her would consider her “dumb”. Also, it is statistically quite rare.

 However, that doesn’t change the fact that she doesn’t speak. I have never heard her say “mama” or tell someone her name or how old she is. She can’t tell me where it hurts, or what she is thinking about. I would give anything to understand what is going on in her head, what she wants and how she feels.

 Which is why listening to “Mary Did You Know” invariably reduces me to tears, especially when it is sung (perfectly) by Kathy Mattea.



This song is not only beautiful, reverent and thought provoking, but when she sings (at 2:07) that “the dumb will speak the praises of the Lamb” I am reminded that the true meaning of Christmas is the birth of Him who heals all sorrows, including my non-verbal child. I know that someday, my funny, loving, adorable daughter will look into her Savior’s face and “sing his praises”.

 So, instead of listening to the radio, I made myself a playlist on YouTube, so I can listen to the truly great music of the ages .

 May you have a wonderful, joy filled Christmas—and may you be aware of the miracles that you take for granted every day.

 About me: I am the proud, mellow, homeschooling mom of three children, (BigGirl, LargeBoy and SmallDaughter—the non-verbal one) who are as perfect as any reasonable parent could ask for, AND the Wonderdog, who is an Autism Service Dog (and a LIFE and SANITY SAVER!). I am also the stay at home wife of My Favorite Gentleman, who is helping me learn love, patience and selflessness. I believe that we should build up, not tear down, that we should protect and defend those who cannot defend themselves, and that life is intended to be joyful and beautiful. I believe that God lives and reveals Himself in our lives, if we are paying attention. You can read more about our adventures at http://aprismaticlife.blogspot.com

Foodie Friday: Candle Time Tradition and Wassail Recipe

I asked my good friend, Meggan, to share one of her favorite Christmas traditions. I am thankful she complied!  The tradition she shares also, happens to be one that I have adopted, to some degree, in my own family. Meggan is the busy mom of three adorable and lively sons. She and her husband live in New York City. You can read more about their adventures on her blog (although be warned she doesn't update regularly).

Every year right after Thanksgiving I start to get excited about Christmas. We put up our tree on December 1st (and finished decorating on the 4th), and I am almost done putting up the rest of the decorations. Our house looks soo pretty at Christmas time! The style of it really fits the winter holidays, which makes it extra fun to decorate.

One of my very favorite holiday traditions is Candle Time. Someone gave a starter kit to our family when I was 7 or 8, and it continued to grow from there. Each night in December we would light candles, starting with one and ending up with twenty four on Christmas Eve. We would read a Christmas story, or scriptures telling of the prophecies or birth of Christ. Then we would sing three Christmas hymns (no Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer) and then say our family prayer and go to bed.

On the 24 we would do a big celebration, carrying on a tradition from my grandparents. Everyone would get dressed up in costumes and act out the Nativity while my dad read the account of Christs birth from Luke 2. The littlest baby always played Jesus, unless they were way too big, and then we had a doll stand in. Afterwards we would drink wassail and sing Christmas carols and visit for hours.

I loved sitting in the darkness lit only by candles and lights from the tree, listening to my dad reading stories of Christmas, surrounded by all of the people I loved best. When I think of Christmas, candle time is what I think of first.

Candle time was also my moms favorite part of Christmas. Having 9 children and not a lot of income, I think Christmas was probably quite stressful for her. Taking the time to be together each night and focus once again on why we celebrate Christmas helped her remember that it didn't matter how much was under the tree. She died on Christmas Eve, 11 years ago. I still miss her, but having candle time with my own family helps me feel close to her during the holidays, and I am reminded once again of the great blessing we have. Because of Christ, I will see her again. THAT is why I celebrate Christmas.

The Butt Ornament, An original Christmas Story by Scott Hales



I've gotta say that I am pretty excited about today's post and guest poster. Guest author, Scott Hales, is a long time friend of mine and excellent writer. I have known his wife for even longer. They are fantastic people with a great sense of humor.  I feel pretty excited to say that I actually really truly know him because I have this inkling that he will be published and pretty well-known one day. You may have already bumped into Scott in a few other places on the net, he can also be found at The Low-Tech World, Modern Mormon Men and Fenimore's Ghost

A little bit about Scott: 

Scott lives in a small house in a suburb of Cincinnati with his wife and three daughters. He spends a lot of his time reading Mormon fiction and trying to come up with original things to say about it. On weekday mornings, he gets up at 4:40 to teach seminary. On weekday evenings, he and his wife watch network television and wonder what it must be like to have a satellite dish and 400 channels. During the daytime, he is a graduate student in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Cincinnati. He doesn't like pets or home repairs. He always likes to watch superhero cartoons with his kids. Sometimes he rides a mountain bike in the woods behind his neighborhood. When he's feeling particularly nostalgic, he'll pull out his masterfully written mission journals and remember the days when he didn't sport sideburns. 

Without further ado, the hilarious and thoughtful Christmas Story:

The Butt Ornament
by Scott Hales



Photo Source: Scott Hales


When we were kids, my brothers and sisters and I used to get Christmas ornaments every year from our grandparents. These were usually the last gifts we’d opened up. And not because we were saving the best for last. I mean, we weren’t dumb. We always went for best stuff first.

Of course, my parents tried their hardest to create an aura of reverence around the ornaments. Probably because they knew we were all hoping against hope that grandma and grandpa had—I don’t know—somehow fit a Nintendo Entertainment System into a box the size of a matchbox car. So, whenever we’d tear away the wrapping paper and find a toy soldier or a Santa Claus lifting weights, my mom would put on her church voice and say, “Oh, Scott, look at that! It’s beautiful!”

And I’d think, “Seriously? It’s a two-inch Santa lifting weights.”

Every year was about the same. The three little pigs in a stocking. Charlie Brown playing a bass drum. A bear in a sailor suit. Mrs. Claus in an unflattering red moo moo. We’d dutifully put on smiles and hang these new ornaments on the tree. Then we’d go back to playing with our Ghostbusters action figures or Tiger Handheld Games.

One Christmas was a game-changer, though. I don’t remember when it was exactly, but I couldn’t have been more than eleven. If I had to guess, I would say it was the Christmas of ’89, which would put me at nine years old. It definitely wasn’t the Christmas of ’90, the Christmas of the “Grandma’s Closet” incident, which has become a part of Hales family lore. That’s a story for another time.

Anyway. There we were. All five of us kids—still without a Nintendo—unwrapping the same old tiny boxes and wishing we could play with our new toys stacked just out of reach. Nearby was our mom readying her church voice and our dad wishing we’d open the ornaments already so he could read his new book. I don’t remember if we had a dog at this time or not. If we did, she was probably off somewhere taking a leak on the carpet.

So the paper came off and the church voice came out. “Ooh!” my mom said automatically. “Look at that, Christopher!...It’s beautiful, Scott!...And look at that one, Amanda!...How nice, Rebecca!...And look at yours, Jason!!…It’s a…”

“IT’S A BUTT!!!”

The room went silence and all eyes turned to my older brother, who was gazing upon his ornament with the exultant look of a shepherd boy on that first Christmas morning. If the Herald Angels had shown up then and there his face could not have glowed with more sacred and holy jubilation. Tears were practically in his eyes.     

At first I didn’t get it. His ornament was the same as mine: a little wooden boy on a sled decorated like a Christmas present. Then I took a closer look at mine and saw it. 

Sure enough, it was a butt. Two unmistakably pink cheeks poking out of a wreath on the little guy’s red rear-end.

It was, in a word, awesome.

After that, the Butt Ornaments occupied a special place on the Hales family Christmas tree. Every year, my brother and I would place them at eye-level on the tree, their tiny butts facing outward, two glorious moons to herald in the Holiday Season. Early on, for propriety’s sake, my mom would turn them around while we were at school or outside in the snow. So we learned to conduct routine Butt Ornament checks and post guards when necessary. Sometime in the mid-nineties she quit trying.

The Christmas after I got married, my mom gave me a plastic container full of all of the Christmas ornaments my grandparents had sent me over the years. My wife and I were dirt poor at the time and didn’t really have the cash to trick the Christmas tree out right. So the old ornaments meant a lot to us. Especially since my grandpa had died six years earlier and my grandma was then in a nursing home and fading fast. It’s funny, but those tiny presents—those lame last gifts to open—have lasted much longer than the stacks of toys we’d play with for three months then outgrow and toss away. Some of them, I imagine, will hang on my tree till I die.    

One of them, of course, will be the Butt Ornament. It’s hanging on my tree as I type, hung there—wreathed butt still facing outward—by Emily, my four-year-old daughter. Already I’ve promised to pass it along to her. Of my three daughters, she the one who’s most partial to butt jokes and potty humor, so I figure she’s the likeliest one to carry on the Butt Ornament tradition. As long as it holds together and doesn’t fall apart, it should be mooning family Christmases for another century or so.  

I don’t know if that’s a testament to Christmas or lame gifts from grandparents or family traditions or love. My guess is that it’s a little butt of everything.

You know what I mean?

Inspire Me Monday: If You Ever Doubt


This is a guest post that I've been given permission to share, It's from Emilie over at Thinking Audibly... It's a wonderful reminder that miracles still happen and that God loves us! I loved reading this post!

Thursday brought hurricane force winds to our little part of the world. Trees were ripped from their homes pulling up the earth around them, shingles dislodged, fences toppled, and the general mayhem we've seen on T.V. but rarely seen for ourselves was suddenly right outside our doors.

Along with the physical damage of the landscape and our homes came the loss of power to much of Davis County and, at one point, the entire city of Bountiful. My mom and step-dad's home joined those without power for most of the day.

With the evening approaching they made the decision to purchase a new generator to keep their house and themselves warm. My sister and her four young kids had been visiting from Colorado and had been staying with my mom. They planned to spend the night there. You see, they had been told that the power would be restored by 5pm. Dave, my step-dad, thought he just might be able to get the generator running by 5pm as well. But by 6:30pm when there was no power from either source, corralling 4 cold, hungry kids in a dark house became quite challenging. So when I called to offer a hot dinner in a warm home that never lost power for an extended time during the day, Annie and the kids decided to change plans and spend the night at my house.

That was the first miracle.

Earlier in the day, Dave spent 9 hours using his chain saw helping neighbors remove trees that had either fallen or looked like they were on their way down. By the time he got the generator running, in an outside storage room that shared one wall with the house, at 7pm he was exhausted. Mom and Dave decided to head to bed shortly after the power came on at 11pm. Dave was experiencing dizzy spells now and again and mom felt more wiped out than usual. They attributed all of this to their busy, long, strenuous day. With Dave barley making it into his bed and mom not really knowing how to turn the generator off they decided they would let it run through the night to help continue warming up the house.

At some point the carbon monoxide detector got unplugged because it was thought to be malfunctioning due to the power outage.

They both went to sleep.

At 4:30am Dave woke up.

That was the second miracle.

Carbon monoxide had been seeping into the home through the shared wall with the storage unit since 7pm. Dave should not have woken up.

After waking up Dave realized he couldn't move well. He knew something was horribly wrong. Using what strength he had, which was already compromised from he long hours of clearing trees the day before, he woke mom up and explained they were in trouble. She found she also could not move well. Dave pushed mom off the bed and then threw his body to the floor.

From their room to the front door is only about 30 feet.

After hitting the floor, Dave made his way over to mom. With no ability to walk, together they began to scoot, slowly, toward the front door. Dave using any extra strength he had, after inching himself forward, to push mom even further ahead. They continued in this pattern for over an hour. Struggling to breath or move. Terrified of what would happen if they didn't. Hardly being able to think other than that they needed fresh air and that that air was outside.


At some point the front door opened.

Neither of them remember how that happened as the lock is higher then they had energy to reach let alone strength to push the door while turning the lock.

That was the third miracle.

During mom and Dave's long struggle to the door, Heather, a neighbor, had woken up early to meet her friend for a run while checking on the damage to her neighbors. Her friend wasn't there. She decided to continue with her plans and began her normal run route. Shortly she felt she should alter her route and run one street above. She had never run this way before. It was still in her ward boundaries so she new the street but she had never exercised along it.She said it was more than a random decision....something decided for her.

That was the fourth miracle.

One street above her normal run route two people were fighting for their lives.

As she ran along the new street, at about 6:10 am, she noticed mom and Dave's door open. Looking closer she saw my mom army crawling, with her hair in her face. I talked to Heather and she said my mom's face, a face of a person terrified and struggling for her life, will randomly flash through her mind and catch her off guard leaving nothing left to do but cry. Then Heather saw Dave behind mom also crawling on his belly. She ran to them and dragged mom out onto the porch landing. Then she dragged Dave as far as the door, but he didn't want to go much further because he was only in his garments.

Heather questioned them for a minute, but they were very dazed. She needed to get them warm. They were very hesitant to let her go in the house because of the danger. Heather told me she found out as much information regarding the location of Dave's robe, some socks, and a blanket as she could, held her breath, covered her mouth in the elbow of her arm and ran through the room gathering the items. She very much wanted me to document that Dave was VERY insistent that she get nothing for him. He only wanted mom taken care of. She said that he didn't want her to spend any energy or time on him, only on his wife.

On a lighter note for a moment, Heather shared with me that she had found mom a blanket and wanted to get one for Dave so she asked them where more blankets where. They both said, "We don't have any more blankets."  She tried to reason with them that they probably did, but neither one would consent to that idea.

Realizing that mom and Dave needed more help then she had, and not having a phone with her, she ran four houses down to a friend who is also a nurse. The nurse friend came running, attended to mom and Dave and called 911. The ambulance arrived within 5 minutes.

The house tested at over 400 parts per million.To put that into perspective, a carbon monoxide detector goes off at 30 parts per million.

After 4 hours of oxygen treatment mom and Dave were released.

That was the fifth miracle.

They are tired, but they. are. alive!



Their house was tested 100% neg. for carbon monoxide shortly after their hospital release

When you stop and think just how close that came to ending differently, it becomes hard to breath.

If Annie had decided to stay and spend the night at mom and Dave's, her children.....I can't even finish the sentence.

If Dave had not been woken up.

I know he was woken up by the Holy Ghost. There is no other explanation. None. People with that level of carbon monoxide poisoning don't. wake. up. They just don't. We have a mortician friend and when he heard the story he said, "My only experience with carbon monoxide poisoning is if you are poisoned enough to be taken in an ambulance, you don't get better."

If the door had not been open when Heather passed.

If Heather had not listened to the promptings to take an alternate path.

If the oxygen treatment had not worked.

I am SO grateful for a loving Father in Heaven who is so mindful of us. I am grateful for miracles. I absolutely have no doubt that's what happened in this situation. I would venture to say this would even be a challenge for those who believe in only coincidences to explain.

Personally, I know, I know, none of it was a coincidence. I am so grateful to know who I can thank for allowing me and my family more time. I know because of what I believe.

The rest of this season will no longer have the same meaning as years before. The meaning will be deeper. I will teach my children the truth with more heart. And I will not sweat the small stuff. It's incredible how easy it is to simplify when faced with almost losing something of great value.

And lastly, if ever you, you reading this right now, doubt for a fraction of a second that a loving, living, Heavenly Father exists and knows you, please book mark this post or print it out and reread it. I promise He is there.

I promise He knows you.

He has great plans for you.

He still sends miracles.

Of this I have no doubt.

Hi! I'm Emilie. My goal for 2011 was to blog every.single.day. Besides that goal, when I turned 30 I decided I needed to have a new scare-me-spitless goal every decade.A dream that seems impossible at first, but that I felt really drawn to. The dream this decade is to become a fabric designer. It's a terrifying, thrilling, exciting journey. One little step at a time. Besides this passion, I live for my four kids, my very supportive husband,and any chance to learn a new skill.

A Gift to the World

ON December 4th my church put on a Christmas Devotional, like they do every year. It was fantastic. One of the "gifts" from the first presidancy to us is that they had videos made of the Life of Christ. They really are beautiful. They are taken from accounts in the King James Version of the Bible.

There are two videos listed here today, first is the introduction to these videos found at biblevideos.lds.org and the second is the Christmas video called, A Gift to the World. I love it. My 2 year old son, a big fan of baby Jesus, just loved it, even with its quiet/reverent tone.

If you don't want to watch them both at least watch the second one, so you can see one of the videos. I am definitely excited about this!
