The decorations at New Beginnings last night were so adorable. They served a delicious dinner of soups, salad's, rolls and cheesecake's!
The theme for both the young women and young men is: Stand ye in Holy Places and be not moved, until the day of the Lord come: for behold it cometh quickly saith the Lord. D & C. 87:8They did an adorable program of the Young Women in a pageant. Each of them representing a value and from a place in Church History!

Parents favorite childhood memory____When Giselle was born it was in the middle of winter and hospitals were very afraid of germs. So they wouldn't let any kids into the hospital where Giselle and I were. Of course this was very hard for Jolie because she was SO excited for her new baby sister to be born. Daddy brought her and her siblings up to the window outside to see her. It was freezing but all I could see was Jolie's smiling face so happy to see her little sister. When I came out to the waiting room by myself. because I wasn't allowed to bring Giselle out with me. Jolie cried. It brought tears to my eyes because she was so sad and also brought tears to my eyes because I knew how much she loved her little sister already and that they were meant to be the best of friends. To this day those two have a special bond that I know was formed in heaven.

I'm not going to say Oh, I LOVE snow..but I have to say it is fun to play in the snow once in a while. If it's going to be cold and windy there might as well be snow. We have had snow a little bit but not the snowman making kind....until now!!! It was the perfect snow...you just had to barely grab it and it turned right into a snowball. So, yes I got on my knees and rolled a ball. I might have been the only one doing it and I might have not minded. It was fun and I knew the kids would like it once it was up. I made the bottom to layers and Jillian made the head. The bottom two were pretty close in size and REALLY heavy. I could not lift that middle one by myself. I tried and tried and finally asked my neighbor to help me. With her and two kids we finally got that sucker up there. Giselle was VERY excited to put the carrot in..and Jacob REALLY wanted Celery for his arms. So that is what we did. Jillian picked cherry tomatoes for his eyes and buttons.
Luckily, we are supposed to get a bunch more snow today so maybe we can build a snowman family next!
scripture questions! It was a lot of fun and it was fun for the girls to see and learn how to use the tools in the scriptures to find things. We finished up with a game of knock out and brownies. I just love these girls and the amazing leaders I get to serve with.
