ah ah ah...
it was fun... we at least had a good time! ann painted all of our shirts and they were each different and we attempted to wear the fangs... but they didn't work very well!
very, very fun!!
there were some really great costumes at work this year!
wednesday night i went down to centerville to stay with my friend kris. we (dick, kris and i) flew out to seattle early thursday morning for my last scrapbook show of the year! seattle is always a very good show and we had a good time! we were super busy, which is a great thing, and spent lots of time with marsha and sandi from paperloft! they are so great! we love them!
last night we had our Young Women in Excellence program. it was amazing! the girls did such a great job!
i am so proud of each of them!
as leaders, we sang the closing song "Walk Tall You are a Daughter of God" to the girls. last week we all met and practiced. i have to say, it was the first time that i really felt connected as a new yw presidency. we had such a great time... laughed, sang, giggled... sang a bit and laughed until we were crying. it was a great night. i am so grateful for my calling in the young women.
ok... so back to my story... as we started singing the closing song to the girls, our yw president starting crying a bit, then the secretary... i was on the end and was afraid to look over to them... i am typically a cryer, so i didn't need any instigating!! by the second verse, i think almost all of them were crying!
now, i wasn't sure if i should start crying, start laughing or just keep singing!!
i chose to keep singing... i got a little emotional during the last phrase of the song... whew! what an experience! as we all sat down tiffany said (kinda to herself, kinda not -lol) "that is NOT how we practiced it!" i have to say, i thought the whole thing was very comical! we all kinda laughed about it later! one of the girls came up to me after and said jokingly "nice solo, sister little!"
overall, it was an amazing night! we have such an amazing group of girls! i am so proud of all of them! i am grateful that i serve with women who love them as much as i do. we wouldn't have been so emotional if we didn't!
life is good.
