Friday night, i went over to Brooke's house & visited with her. we grew up together. she's one of my oldest friends. its fun to visit with old friends.
Saturday, i met Melissa for lunch - we sat and visited for a while. i loved getting to know her, at least in person. (i didn't feel awkward about meeting her, i was just excited!) she's a beautiful person, physically & personality wise. and, we ate at kneaders, one of my favorite places.
after that, i ran to meet Heidi & family to see the bee movie. which was altogether entertaining. it was hilarious to me how exacerbated Annie got with the previews. she kept yelling "hottie, do you want to go see that one, too?" and this is also where she told me about all of her programs coming up. primary program. school program. dance recital. gotta get those on the calendar pronto, there will be no missing of those. actually, their primary program was this morning. i went. they were adorable, all of them. Emma's growing up to be such a beautiful, lovely young lady. porter, he just melted my heart today. and Annie, she couldn't stop smiling, which meant i couldn't stop crying.
there's something about kids singing about Heavenly Father. just warms my soul. that and patriotic programs at school - I'm like a blubbering fool. call me miss cries a lot. i love kids - they have such sweet, innocent spirits. yet, they always have that devious smile there, keeping you on your toes. and yes, i love deviance. it makes me feel at home.
also - as today is Veteran's Day, I want to express an appreciation for the people that have served our country, protecting each and every one of us. I'm thankful for the troops of yesteryear and for the troops today.
