Enrichment night

We had our enrichment night last night for relief society and it turned out so well. We have an awesome 2nd couselor and she has a great enrichment committee and it turned out to be a great night. I thought I would share a little video I put together. Our theme was "Live like you believe", so I have been taking pictures of sisters in our ward for the past month and then I put it to music and words. This is mostly to show my sister Maria for an idea for her RS, but everyone is welcome to watch! It was a crazy day: I shot a wedding in the morning at the temple, then went to the church to set up the projector, then went to the wedding reception and took more pictures, then ran to enrichment hurried and ate dinner and played the slide show and with 15 minutes to spare I ran back to the reception to get pictures of the couple cutting the cake and dancing, then I ran back to the church to clean up all the electrical equipment. whew. When I woke up for work this morning I had a sore throat, I knew it was only a matter of time because everyone in my house has had strep throat, so I started on an antibiotic and I'm feeling much better. Heavenly Father knew I could not get sick until AFTER my crazy day and I am grateful for that!

Fallen Hero

This past week has been a sad week here in Cache Valley. A fifth grade teacher from Nibley elementary was killed in the line of duty while in Iraq. I didn't know him personally but I did know his wife, she went to Mountain Crest. He decided to enlist in the Army and serve his country a year and half ago. I have heard so many good things about him this week. On Wednesday, the day of his funeral, I pulled out to go to work and this is what I saw on the road in front of our house. The entire road was completely lined with flags on both sides. The pictures really do not do it justice, it was a beautiful sight. Hundreds of flags every five feet in both directions for as far as you could see. By the time I got to the end of the street I had tears in my eyes as I thought about my comfortable life in my heated car, while others are risking their lives to make mine so easy. I have such a respect for the men and women that serve our country.
