Audrey's New Glasses and blog about Savannah in ER

Audrey's New Glasses and blog about Savannah in ER

Today Audrey joined the glasses club! She is the same age (nine) when her mother got her first pair of glasses! She loves wearing her glasses and cannot wait to show them off to everyone. She is supposed to wear them at school or church. She doesn’t need to wear them while doing homework, reading, and playing outside. As for Savannah, on Sunday after church, Savannah found a small red bead on the floor. She decided to see what it feels like sticking the bead up her nose. To her surprise, it got stuck and came to Mom hoping I could pull it out. I grabbed the tweezers and tried to pull it out, which by the way is a big no no since it was located high up in her nose. I was lucky I didn’t damage any tissue. I gave up after a few minutes and told John to take her to the emergency room because I was worried it may travel to her sinus or respiratory system. She got a chalk board from the ER nurse. The nurse said, “You have to give this chalk board back to me if you put anything else up your nose.” Savannah agreed with the nurse saying she won’t put anything up her nose ever again (crossing my fingers she will keep that promise). Anyway she was brave throughout the procedure. She didn’t scream or shed a tear. The doctor had John try to blow in her mouth while plugging the unaffected side of her nose to see if the bead would fall out, which was unsuccessful. So the doctor used some long tweezers and some hook thing to pull the bead out. Hopefully, her emergency room experience was traumatic enough that she won’t ever do that again!


Audrey's School Concert

Audrey did a great job at her choir's concert. Here is the first song (I had hard time keeping the teacher out of the way of Audrey).

Lauren's 12 Days of Christmas

We (Elizabeth, Mandy, Brandon, Marilee, Richard, Jordan, Jen, Audrey, Savannah) watched Lauren perform at the Scera Theater for her singing group, the Headliners. She did a great job, much better than my cellphone could capture. Anyway, enjoy within the limits of hand-held technology. :-)

Here is some cell-phone-video of the concert.

Pre-MTC Party for Justin

Pre-MTC Party for Justin

Here are a few pictures of all those who have good wishes and admiration for Justin as he enters the MTC.
We had a lovely family Home evening in Rosanna and Pedro's house. Marilee and her girls sang "Sweet is the work" with their beautiful voices blending wonderfully. That set me up to teach the lesson on fear faith and the spirit. Justy is such a good example of humility, like Mike, that it was easy to show how being filled with charity will make them fearless as he enters into the unknown, possibly fearful, work of teaching the gospel. It was also easy to show by his example that remission of sins brings the gift of the Holy Ghost which in turns gives the gift of charity. In that audience it was natural to testify of the invitation of the the savior for all, no matter their transgressions, to come to him and become clean. We had a nice outpouring of the spirit.
Amazingly the member of the Mission Presidency who came to set Justy apart was our Mission President when we were in the Rochester Mission. That made his setting apart very special. Interesting how the Lord blesses us continually.
