Do you Wana Build a Snowman? - Events of Today... :)

Today, was a nice peaceful day, and I ended up having the day off! So I decided that for today, I will simply post events of today (it's still the year 2014! :p)

I made a Christmas collage (see last post of Christmas day)...

Today while Mindy and Levi were both working, Dausen decided to decorate the snowman he made when we got that big pile of snow a couple days ago. J Miles and I joined Dausen in the blustery cold, and this was the result of our creation…

Dausen's photos were better than mine...

Upon seeing his photos compared to mine, I asked him to "teach me something." So he did. I love that kid! :) I told him I want him to give me lessons. Then maybe I will do more than just point and shoot on auto! I learned about features I didn't even know my camera had. Here are a couple photos I took of what was right in front of me at the moment he showed me a feature on my camera, which I didn't even know I had. :o

What else happened today? ...

I gave Dausen a hair cut; followed by Dausen trimming his beard…(He didn't want me taking a photo of him in his jammies, so no photo of Dausen today... :o)

Miles and Dausen goofed off with the swords the Missionaries made for our family for Christmas! :)

Note: this photo was taken BEFORE the hair cut. I wish I could have shown you an "AFTER" photo... so handsome! :O
Mindy and I also baked pumpkin muffins for New Years Eve tomorrow night… :D
(I think we'll be OK without a photo of that, too. But... ah, what the heck!

The two in the front are made with wheat cake mix.
The pretty one in the back is gluten free!
And Miles made invitations to pass out to friends and neighbors for some Emergency Classes being offered at his/our SAIL Marine store this weekend! (I’m so excited! Miles is expanding the business with a new component he can focus on during the winter time!!!!) I went over his invitation for errors or to make minor improvements... And I jot got REALLY HAPPY that he decided to do something like this to increase our income! Right now I am busy cleaning houses for income, so I will be his "assistant" but not the core one at work with THRIVE. I ALMOST worked THRIVE a few years ago, but just didn't fit it into my life. 

OK - check out the invitation...
Attention friends and sailors! I’m excited to announce a new component of SAIL Marine! We now have available to you the most delicious freeze dried and dehydrated foods on the planet! In addition to being delicious and compact food storage, it is great for camping, hiking, boating, and much more! AND YOU CAN TASTE IT FOR FREE AT OUR CLASSES!

On January 2nd & 3rd I am hosting three types of classes: Meal in a Jar (MIAJ), Cooking, and Emergency Preparedness classes at the SAIL Marine store at 406 West Miles Avenue in Hayden Idaho, next to Cruze Auto Sales.

Join us to learn about THRIVE Freeze Dried (FD) Foods and Emergency Preparedness Products.

The Thrive foods have a much higher nutrient content than food in the grocery store and yet can SAVE you money every month. The shelf life on many of the products is 25 years un-opened and 1 to 2 years once opened, unrefrigerated. Even THRIVE’S Beef, Chicken, and Pork Sausage have a 25 year shelf life and 1 year after opening.

Great for healthy LOW SODIUM snacks, baby food, and every day in home cooking as well as food storage. Over 120 products are Certified Gluten Free! We will have free samples of some of the delicious THRIVE foods so come and try them for yourself (Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian).

Jar meals are $10 with your own jar or $11.50 with our jar. Limit 1 jar per family/couple. We’ll teach how to make the Meal In A Jar (MIAJ) and then cook it so that you can taste before deciding if you want to buy it.

RSVP if possible so that I can have enough samples and food for jars for all. Miles Moore 208-704-4454 or email funtosail@gmail.com

  1. I want to come to your classes! I've been super interested in THRIVE foods. We used to get an order a month from a friend, but it's expensive. My sister in law was telling me that she is going to start ordering as part of her groceries and that it will save her money..What are your thoughts on that?

    1. I used to think it was too expensive, then realized a few things...1) What is the most expensive food you buy??? THE FOOD YOU THROW AWAY! lol - By replacing fresh with freeze dried food, you don't have the waste you get from fresh getting wilted etc. 2) Also, so called "fresh" food from the grocery store is picked green, gassed to look ripe, then stored so long that by the time you get it there are little to no nutrients left. And it seems expensive, too! One piece of this nutrient deficient fruit from the store costs quite a bit when you multiply it by several family members to feed each day. *Because THRIVE is allowed to ripen and picked at peak value, then freeze-dried within 2-12 hours, there is so much nutrient content that it is much more flavorful/delicious than grocery store food, and more satisfying due to the nutrient content. 3) Even kids who are very picky about fruits and vegetables will usually really like THRIVE - even straight out of the can. All the nutrients and fiber can really help kids to be healthier and smarter... and it is so easy to get kids to eat THRIVE fruits and vegetables (easy too. Just scoop it from the can and give it to them dry) that's a bit deal to me! It is so much easier to build a healthy body on healthful foods that are nutrient and fiber rich and alive, than on foods that are nutrient poor and or dead. 4) The more nutrients you get from your foods, the less you need to eat. Too many bodies are starving for nutrients while overeating and gaining weight. When our nutrient needs aren't met, we are left unsatisfied and eat more. THRIVE is nutrient dense, filled with fiber, delicious, and satisfying. 5) When we got THRIVE foods a long time ago, Miles and I would save it for "emergencies." We just started getting it again and decided to incorporate it into our diets regularly for the reasons above. The first two days of eating it we were both AMAZED that our bodies were ... how do I say this? WORKING SO WELL. :o LOL :D Those two days really sold us on the benefits and value!!! :) - If you decide to try it again and need anything, I'd be happy to help out! This month is a great month to start a Q - as you can get DOUBLE the half off foods in addition to the free foods for hosting (if your Q is $200 - you can count it as a party and receive "host" benefits of free food and half off food). Also, I can get you special deals if you are interested. Oh yes - that brings me to #6) You can get free and half off foods for hosting! :) And you can get friends to order with you to help you earn host benefits as well. I hope this helps and isn't too long. Cheers! :D

  2. I love that the missionaries made swords! haha! I hope you and your family enjoyed the holidays. It sure looks like it.

    1. Hi, Valerie! :D I'm so happy to see you here!! I have missed you!!! - As for the missionaries making swords... Yeah. :D They're great! :) I love our missionaries!! :D
