Oh delicious ring of frosting...
Mae and one of her favorite uncles, Kevin. We wish he lived closer.
On Thursday, Kendra, Drew and I drove President and Sister Livingstone (aka mom and dad) up to the airport and sent them to DR Congo. I think they were pretty terrified on the drive up, but took courage when they saw the other 100+ mission presidents checking in for their flights. Finally we reached airport security and it was our cue to go. We took our last pictures, gave our last hugs and kisses and said goodbye! We watched as they walked a little ways, waved, walked a little more, waved some more, walked, waved, until we could only see their waving hands through all the people. bonne chance (good luck) mom and dad, bonne chance!
To make my sisters and i feel better, we all went for a dose of retail therapy at the outlets in Park City. We had a fabulous time and admittedly all felt a little better after we had spent some money (thank heavens for patient husbands). We then went to the cabin and relaxed for awhile. It was nice to escape reality for at least one evening.
Saturday my friend Karrie and I threw a fun shower for our friend Lori. We had found the cutest puppets at Micheals; they are part of the Martha Stewart craft line, but we were pretty sure we could re-create our own. So we made some templates but also told people to make whatever they wanted. We were so impressed at peoples creativity and their ability to make darling puppets. Our one friend made a cheetah! so cute!
