It's rare to come across a set of Elders that bonds with every member of our family. These two are the exception. Elder Kavanaugh and Elder Evensen.
They first hit it off with Phillip during Sunday morning meetings. Lots of joking going on.
The three of them came up with a business plan called Tripod Industries. The Elders even had a book made and did a presentation to us on the concept. Funny!!
It didn't take long for the rest of the family to see what extrordinary young men they are. Logan has been going to the Nursing home every Friday with them to sing along with other Missionaries. He has really grown to love them which is quite surprising for Logan. Amanda, Emily and Isabelle think they're about as funny as they get. And I just love them to pieces!
We have a great time when they're here and bring such a great spirit with them.
But after eight months in our ward, Elder Kavanaugh is being transferred today. And he only has six weeks left of his mission here. We're so sad to see him go, but look forward to staying in touch and seeing what marvelous things he does with his life. I don't know how many times I've asked them to marry a couple of my daughters so they can be a part of our family.
Thanks Elders for being a part of our family for a little while at least.
I sat and watched along with the congregation today.
It was amazing.
Those were MY kids up there singing so beautifully!
Amanda and Emily looking and sounding like angels.
Logan so handsome in his suit.
Elder Kavanaugh, love him like one of my own kids.
I wish I could have stopped time, rewinded and played it over and over.
How Great Thou Art sung acapella and in four part harmony.
So Powerful and so beautiful.
My favorite hymn.
I wish all my family could have been there to see it.
I hope to see it again someday.
It's Prom time again. This year is Scott's Senior Prom. But of course he took Amanda, his main squeeze, even though she's done with High School. He bought a brand new suit that will become one of his mission suits later. Amanda bought her dress at Black House White Market again. I thought they looked quite the dashing couple, don't you?
I just love this one! Look at him looking at her! awwww.
You just gotta love spirit week! Today is Disney Day, dress like your favorite Disney character. We didn't have to brainstorm very long at all. The inspiration was the red heart apron Grandma Linda gave to one of my girls.
May I present to you, The Red Queen:
Although it's perfectly obvious what she is, if someone asks her who she is supposed to be, of course she will say;"OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!"
