Last Night I Had A Dream I Was Drinking A Root Beer Float
We were watching the Christmas Devotional at the Seelbinders and Mark made us all root beer floats. He said "Last night I had a dream I was drinking a root beer float; and look at me now, follow your dreams."
This week was the Night of Lights. That is were the entire town of Gunnison gets together and people have booths that line Main Street and at the end of the street there is a giant Christmas tree and Santa comes; at some point all the kids follow him and he lights the tree. The church had a booth and it was pretty close to the tree so that was awesome. We handed out a lot of pass along cards about the Christmas video. We also had a little fire and people could roast marshmallows.
It was also the Branch Christmas party this week. We ended up singing Mary, Did You Know? with the Seelbinders. The kids all did a little skit about what Christmas would have been like in the Americas.
We had a lesson with Shay this week. We ended up teaching the 10 commandments and why we should live them.
We were finally able to meet with Grace this week. Grace is a 13 year old girl who wanted to be baptized, but her mom does not think she is old enough to make that decision. Grace really loves church and the gospel. We started doing personal progress with her so she can still meet with the missionaries.
I hope you all have a great week.
[the link for "Christmas Devotional" links to the lds.org main page. Currently you can watch the video right on the main page. I don't know how long it will be up, maybe for the week.
Ana may eye roll at the version I picked for "Mary Did You Know?", but some of the versions are pretty cheesy (imo), and I thought this one was pretty great.]
