Today was spectacular and quite busy. I woke up and went to church. Sacrament meeting was amazing. The talks were all good and we had two special musical numbers. David sang a song and totally killed it. So good. Then Caroline played a lovely harp piece. Their shared talents really brought a special spirit to the meeting. Absolutely loved it. Cameron and I taught Sunday school today. I brought my Valentine's Day cookies to share and they were a big hit. Overall I think the lesson went pretty well, but next time we teach it will be even better. After church all of the Sunday school teachers had a meeting where Thomas and Isaac taught us how to be more effective teachers. They had some really good suggestions and totally pumped me up to be a better teacher.
Lunch/Dinner at the Cannon today was pretty good. I love Sundays in the Cannon because they always have good ice cream. I almost forgot Sundays are ice cream days, but luckily Sarah reminded me before I settled for a rice krispy treat. Somehow the dinner conversation turned to shortening people's names. I'm not quite sure how it all went down, but Coopers decided I was Lil Lees. Like lily. So then I became Lily, which really isn't shorter than Lisa at all. When I came back from getting a bowl of ice cream, Cooper had made me a "lily" (it looks more like a rose) out of a napkin. Megan was jealous so Coop made her one as well.
This afternoon I spent a lot of time reading the new For the Strength of Youth pamphlet. It is so good! I absolutely love all of the additions. They are perfect. Then I skyped my family :) I love them. Dad made some lame jokes, Mom told me I'm great, and Liv reminded me how much she loves and misses me. They are the best.
Megan came over when I was done skyping and we headed over to the boys' dorms. We were originally going to visit Mitchell, but we ended up in Easton's room with Easton and Thomas. We stayed there until it was time for ward prayer and then went back to our lobby.
After ward prayer we stayed and talked. For a long time. As usual. Slowly the group got smaller and smaller until finally it was just me, Meg, Thomas and Dunia left. We had some good conversation and learned a little more about each other. Including learning about Thomas's rebellious days in the third grade. When we were coming upstairs for the night Dunia was still laughing about Thomas tying everyone's shoes together when he was younger. I thought I was going to have to carry her up the stairs she was laughing so hard.
Someone asked to be included in tonight's post, but at the moment I can't remember who it was. So if it was you, and you're reading this, I'm sorry. Remind me.
Well, busy day tomorrow. Work should be super crazy with people picking up Valentine's packages. Better get some sleep for Marathon Monday (which is really what every Monday feels like).
Goodnight lil baby blog.
