Laura Wheatley’s three nieces and one nephew came to the Wheatley home to join Everly and Georgia for a sleepover. They are the children of Moroni and Stacey Ashby. For entertainment, the children hunted for eggs. The Wheatley chickens and El O’Driscoll’s chickens all lay their eggs on Wheatley ground, so half the eggs are El’s.
The children also made sleepover cookies from pie crust cut in the shape of beds, baked, decorated and eaten. Because Rocky Mountain Power crews were working on Promontory, the children played outside most of the day while the power was out and helped stack wood and do chores.
To really add zest to the end of the day, Laura and Stacey took the children up to the Golden Spike National Historic Site.
Cleo Petit reports a wonderful Easter party at her home on Easter Sunday. She says there were about 25 people at the event. There were hot dogs, hamburgers and salads provided by the adults. Since there were only three children young enough to want to hunt colored eggs, the eggs were duly hidden and searched out. The annual croquet championship was held and Gary and Cleo’s son-in-law Russell Menlove won the trophy. It is his to keep for the coming year.
Boyd Udy enjoyed moving cattle for the Utah Cutting Horse Association Thursday, Friday and Saturday. He says horses came from Utah, Idaho and Montana. It was the opening show of the season. Boyd had the expert help from his daughter Jessica and part time help from granddaughter Kynzee.
Jim and Starr Mitchell were excited to see some of their peas emerging in their garden. Their early planting of spinach has yet to come up.
“We are just doing chores around the house and yard to keep up so we won’t have to catch up!” Starr says.
Winnie Richman says piano lessons for Marriah and Skyler Richman went great. The kids will really be ready for their recital in a few more weeks.
Winnie and friend Carolyn Carter did great at their art on Wednesday.
On Friday, Winnie bought another load of grain for the fattening steers and son Lyle and children Reagen and Brantzen came out to unload it. After they left, Winnie made Conference bread for Saturday and Sunday’s LDS General Conference.
Saturday and Sunday were spent in front of TV watching, listening and learning. The bread was good, too.
