News Flash!!

Two of Lori Russell's foster children are being baptised this Sunday! Just how great is that?!? We know that you may not know them well but you absolutely need to know them. Jordan Marsh is 14, we would love the young men to get involved (the young women will probably naturally be involved-he's cute) and Drevon is 8 so that involves all the primary kids. C.J. is 6 and is looking forward to the time he gets to be baptised too.

The baptism will be at 5:00 p.m.- right after church and we would like everyone to come. They will love being part of a big ward family and to see just how much we care.

If any of you girls have a great cookie or brownie recipe and want to show your talents or if you just want to make the good standbys please call Jeanna Bruse and volunteer for a warm feeling and blessings.

Thanks for all you are! Your adoring Relief Society

Baby Boy Bitner!

There is a new Bitner in the world! Just when you thought the family could not get any better they added one more. Little Noah arrived last Thursday at 8 lbs. 8 ozs. and is 21 inches long. He is already saying "I LOVE YOU MOM AND DAD" ...or was that just his eyes talking.

Mary and Noah came home yesterday and they are doing great. So send them love through the mail, the phone, from your computer, at the doorstep, through concentrated I love you thoughts, or by bended knee. All of the above will be Bitnerly bonding.

New Recipes!!

Have you noticed?
Have you checked?
Do you know where to find them??

Scroll on down...down a little more - right there! In the right hand column, there is a listing of CC2 blogs! Now, some of them are active (the Scouts), some not so much (the YM)....but there is another treasure....the Recipe Blog!!

In lieu of attempting another ward cookbook, we are attempting to create a gathering place that is freely accessible by all where we can find our most sought after recipes. I have been adding some of the ones I have from past "recipe exchange" events, and eventually I will have the rest of those on there :)....also, there are a few salsa recipes that Marcela was kind enough to share with us from Salsa Night - and most recently there is Shirley's delicious Apple Butternut Squash Soup recipe from Terrific Tuesday!!

I know - isn't it great?? Now the next time you want one of those yummy ward recipes, you won't have to go digging through your piles of paper (oh come on, it can't just be me!! ;)....) you can just log on and find it (hint - use the "labels" to click and narrow your search!). Handy, right?

Know what else would be great?? If you shared some more recipes with all of us! I know there has been many requests for the rest of the soup recipes from Terrific Tuesday - so if you brought a soup, then share! :) It's super easy - just email it to me ( and I will get it Right On There!

We are asking that each of the young women bring a small item for our display table that shows something interesting about them. We would appreciate it if the young women could bring their items to church so we can set up the display table before 6:30.

"Share the Warmth" Report

Shirley Nault reported back to us that the Stake RS "Share the Warmth" endeavor was a Great Success! Thanks to all who participated - - Shirley says the children were so darling, but that next time we need more boys shoes, and to include socks , apparently none of the kids seemed to have them. :(
