Perfect

Morgan Mae did it perfectly.

For those of you not familiar with our church, once a year the kids who are 12 and under have a program where they each say a little part & sing church songs.

Last year we were in Disneyland(I know the pits, right?:) Before that she was a bit too little. So, this is the year. Her 1st year she was able to participate. She did beautifully!

We started working with her 1st sentence about 2 weeks before(with Aunt Elyse's help finding the signs--thank you! She's also the one who paints Mo's fingers & toes so cute:)) & the 2nd about 5 days before. She picked it up so fast & hardly any confusion!

Isaac went up and held her on the podium so everyone could see her & she started signing as he whispered the words in her ear..."Father in Heaven loves me. He answers my prayers." Then she started clapping & saying "Yey!" There was not a dry eye...Momma & Papa most definitely included. Afterwards, everyone came up with tears telling her how well she did . She didn't love the hugs & attention at all:). Thank you Uncle Eli & Aunt Jenn & family & Aunt Elyse for coming! We love you guys!

We are so proud of you Morgan Mae! You are such a sweet & smart girl! You touch so many people's lives. We are so lucky & blessed to have you in ours!

oh I wish I could have seen her up there, that sounds so sweet. That is because Morgan is so sweet!
I know, don't you love that James wore that shirt! I will add that I did wear that the last week or so because I couldn't fit into any of my shirts but it was a big maternity shirt! glad you found your slings that would have been sad if you lost them! I'll borrow one soon if it's still okay. Hope you are doing okay without your hubby, you can call anytime to just chat if you are bored! have a great day :)

I have only felt the spirit that stronge one other time, and that was when I got to sing in Generial Conference and President Hinckley walked in the Tabanacle. That brought a big smile on my face and tears in my eyes.

thanks for the well wishes, i never know where to respond to comments..so, i guess this is as good a place as any.
we're planning on staying in the same city, hopefully the same ward even...there's actually a lot across the street for sale, that we're hoping for; we'll just have to see what happens
