A Gentle Giant!!

We just had our stake conferance and it was such an amazing experience. Keith's grandparents watched the kids so we could go and enjoy the meeting. It was a special meeting becuase Elder L. Tom Perry and Elder Jose A. Teixeira (I belive of the 70) were the featured speakers!!! When we got to the church, we went through a small side door and both men were walking into a room right next to it. They saw us coming in and opend the door for us, shook our hands, and welcomed us. I was so amazed, thrilled and excited at the same time. I took out my cell phone and took his picture when he first opend the door. I told him that he was my favorite apostle and could I ge a picture with him? He smiled ad said sure. When he asked Keith if he wanted to be in it I was already pulling him over. He laughed and said sure. The missionaries took our picture with him. Luckily Spencer can email me the picture back to me so I can print it off. I never knew how tall he was. He is about 6'6" tall. He reminds so much of my Grandpa Gray. He has such a great sense of humor.
His memory is really good to. He knew who he talked to before and after the meeting. Before the meeting when I told him that he was my favorite apostle, he said that he hoped he wouldn't disapoint. After the meeting he was walking down the hallway and he came over to us!!! He asked us how it was and Keith said that he sure wasn't disapointed with it at all!!
His talk was so neat. He talked about having a purpose in life. He said to make sure that you go after what you want to but make sure it is one to better your life and it is making holy decisions. I have been thinking a lot about school and he answered a lto of my questions. Elder Teixeira gave a wonderful talk about keeping God and Christ as your own personal GPS system. He talked about moving to Utah and getting very confused becuase he couldn't follow any of the directions there. He was hillarious. He also talkd a lot about missionary work. Both men did a wonderful job. My testimony grew _______ this much. I know that they are called of God. I know that Elder Perry is a true apostle. I know that my prayers were answered.

Can it get any better?

Our next door neighbor grew small mini pumpkns and invited the kids to come over and pick them. Blake lost his first tooth and asked if me if I could ask the tooth fairy if he could keep his tooth. Ella is hanging out with her friends from church and the library school.
