The FINAL Countdown!

Bada-bum-bum!...........Bada-bum-bum-bum!........ (You know you're singing it too...)

So it's the FINAL FIVE!! I can't believe it. So this afternoon I decided it was a great time to drive downtown to the temple...because we got about 4-5" of snow that morning... Yeah. But I made the trek and drove downtown.... it only took 45 minutes to get there.. :)

Well anyway, a funny thing happened. When I was getting back into my car later, I opened the passenger door to put my bag in, and my phone, which was left in the car was ringing. I looked and it was a really wierd number AND wierd area code. I decided to answer it anyway. I said "Hello?" and a strangely familiar voice returned with a "Hi! How are you?" It was then I realized that it was BLEU! Calling on a Saturday. :) So I said "good, how are you?"

And we got cut off. Neat, huh?? I tried to call back and it was busy, then I called again and we talked for another 45 seconds and got cut off again..... They were allowed to use a payphone for some reason I didn't get. We did get to talk for about 4 minutes, and he told me that there was a long line of people waiting to use the phone. So we said our goodbyes untill tomorrow. It was pretty neat that I was getting out of the temple at just the right time! The funny thing is that it took me so long to get there that I almost didn't make it into the session. So I'm super glad that I made it or I wouldn't have been able to talk to him!!

Tonight was our Ward Christmas Party. Ryan Dent called (Home Teacher, Thanksgiving) and asked if I would give Jenny and the kids a ride over because he needed to come later. So I went over and Jenny and I packed the carseats over to my car, buckled everyone in and they were my family for tonight. The Primary was asked to do a Nativity and a Song for the Program so the Primary Presidency and I rounded the kids up and put them into costumes. One of the teachers read the Christmas Story out of the Scriptures and then we sang The Nativity Song. It was pretty cute. It's funny how they are so loud in the Primary Room and then in the Chapel and the Gym they get scared and sing quiet. But they did a good job.

So that's all for now, I will probably be updating soon. Love you all, and enjoy the Season!
