Also, while Chloe was at the dance and Hunter was babysitting, Boyd and I took Bridger to see Forever Strong, the movie about the Highland Rugby Team in Utah. I thought it was very well made and I was so impressed. I think we'll be taking the girls to see it for FHE. It was that good.
Kiera fed us a yummy dinner and awesome birthday cake for my birthday. I've been so blessed by family and friends who love me. It's a scary thing knowing you're in your last year of 30's but being loved definately makes it bearable!
Look Mom...Kiera even took pictures of me for you...check out the look on Boyd's face!We just got back from Standard's Night at the church. It was one of those nights that made my girls think and evaluate their standards. The bishopric was bold and open and I think made an impact on the youth. Heavy stuff but good to get out. Please just let my kids make the right decisions. So with that, I end my "travelog" weekend report. A typical crazy weekend at the Kanenwisher's. But even though we're a bit tired, we're feeling blessed.

3% peroxide 'I would like to tell you of the benefits of that plain little old bottle of 3% peroxide you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store. My husband has been in the medical field for over 36 years, and most doctors don't tell you about peroxide, or they would lose thousands of dollars.'
1. Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. (I do it when I bathe) No more canker sores and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash. (Small print says mouth wash and gargle right on the bottle)
2. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of 'Peroxide' to keep them free of germs.
3. Clean your counters, table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters.
4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria.
5. I had fungus on my feet for years - until I sprayed a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.
6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day. My husband has seen gangrene that would not heal with any medicine, but was healed by soaking in peroxide.
7. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will.
8. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, or plugged sinuses. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes then blow your nose into a tissue.
9. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day.. The pain will lessen greatly.
10. And of course, if you like a natural look to your hair, spray the 50/50 solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You will not have the peroxide burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages, but more natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, reddish, or dirty blonde. It also lightens gradually so it's not a drastic change.
11. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus, or other skin infections.
12. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, pour directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.
13. I use peroxide to clean my mirrors with, and there is no smearing which is why I love it so much for this. I could go on and on. It is a little brown bottle no home should be without! With prices of most necessities rising, I'm glad there's a way to save tons of money in such a simple, healthy manner. Send on to others who might need to know the benefits of 3% peroxide

This is just part of what we got done today.
Amber's little girl, Darcy took this picture of us and our apples. I'm lookin' scarrrry.
Bridger took 1st place in the 7th Grade District Meet!
I'm off to prepare the seminary lesson for tomorrow and medicate my headache. I've got to get to bed earlier. I woke up at 5:38 this morning...seminary starts at 5:55. I'm not exactly sure how I made it. Boyd texted today and said they got an elk on their hunting trip and that he would be flying home tonight. I'm sure I'll have some pictures to post of that soon.

So Bridger speaks in sacrament today, all three girls will be singing in sacrament as well, Boyd leaves for a hunting trip, Hunter sings at the Staley dedication this afternoon, and I need to prepare my seminary lesson for tomorrow. So much for a day of rest!
