The Weekend

Big Family News: My brother, Mark, who is exactly 10 years my junior, has been called to serve a mission for our church for two years. He will be serving in Chihuahau, Mexico and begins language training in Provo, Utah at the Mission Training Center on January 30th.

Friday night I hung out with my sister-in-law, Andy, and 4 of her friends. We went out for sushi and to see a friend's band play. Lots of fun. I was up way past my bedtime.

Saturday I went to Salt Lake and hung out with two old friends from high school. It was great catching up with them. I hadn't seen Melanie in six years! We went out for Chinese food and then saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on the IMAX screen. Great movie. Afterwards we went and saw Holly's new house.

I'd spent the whole day Saturday away from Jonah so Sunday I skipped Sacrament meeting so I could feed him and lay him down for his nap (he will not nap in church and cannot miss a nap). When I got to church I found out I'd missed the primary program, one of my favorite meetings of the year!

How exciting for your brother!

I think those days away with friends are vital to keeping moms happy. I know how hard the church thing is when baby is missing his nap. We end up in the hall for the last half hour anyway and so I am always wondering why I even bother:)

Hooray for Mark! :)

I'm sorry you missed your Primary program at church. It's my very favorite ward meeting of the year...the kids are the cutest.

I have an award for you! :)
