Dear mom and dad,

really don't need anything in a package except any CDs that you
But if you can't send it right away it's seriously okay. Oh and if
it's one of those
where it doesn't matter how much it costs it would be cool if
sent some sheet music of songs I've sung or can play on the
arrangements of hymns, or women at the well, or anything else
would bring people closer to Christ).
was just telling sister T****** that story about Elder Hales
day!!!! Wasn't he also the one who "borrowed" dad's
stake conference and then blew on them and a ton of dust went
off? Or was that one of the general authorities? And who was
one who made the joke about raising the dating age to 17, but
up with "the good news is I saved 15 percent or more on
by switching to geico..." Hahaha!
**Note from Shelly – NO that
was not Elder Hales!
who did Emily throw grass at at Philmont? Haha, sorry Emma, but
were the main topic of conversation this week :)
of Philmont, all the teachers and priests in our ward got to
in a 2 week hike at the Philmont camp!!! So cool!!! I seriously
to go there again! I loved Philmont!
remember painting the deck on Nancy drive. Ugh that was the worst
it took forever. Also I was like 10. But it was fun cause I
we all listened to the Beatles and sang along, and then our
were out on their deck and they saw us and said "a family
paints together, stays together, right? Haha!" And then
could have segued into one of those old Mormon commercials
isn't it about..... Time?" (PS those old commercials are all
gospel library app and I watched all of them one lunch hour)...
love the zoo! And it would be super cool if you worked at Lynch Wood
is grandpa doing? (I got the update! Thanks!) Did grandma and
get the letter I sent them a few weeks ago? If they're okay
it, I would love if you could make a copy of my letter that I
to them. I'm glad you are all spending as much time with him as
can! I will try to send them more letters :) and I'm always
for my family. But I understand that death is also a part of
plan of salvation. I have such a deep testimony of the plan
I have no doubt that our families can
be together forever.
I have absolute faith that because of God's plan
for happiness, and
because of Christ's triumph over death, we
again, return to
our Heavenly Father, and be with our families for
love you all and I hope you have a wonderful week!!!!!
I was asked to sing in the other ward I serve in this week!
