Dear Mom #3 What? It's the end of October?

I don't know about you, but my October was insanely busy... But that's ok considering you come in practically one day! Our ward's Fall Festival was a success, if you can call 60 crazy kids running around the church a success... A few hours before the festival David and I had the opportunity to attend a meeting with Elder Oaks concerning the influx of missionaries in our area. The majority of the time, however, was spent in discussing the ward counsel. I left feeling very uplifted and encouraged to carry on with faith despite the challenges of our ward. We arrived at the party 10 minutes after it started. I'm way bummed I forgot my camera, but we took a picture of my costume after we got home. I'm Miss Understood... My hair was in pigtails, I had funky (though currently popular in some parts of the world) glasses and I wore one of my old fancy dresses from high school.

Who knows what is going on with David's hair...

Our ward is blessed with endless opportunities to feed the missionaries. We could feed them every week if we wanted. Feeding the missionaries also gives me a chance to use some of my awesome baking pans. Can you tell they're beehives?

At some point in my life I am destined to be in the YW and over the beehive class.

This is just one of the 9 sets of missionaries in our ward. Love them. I met Sister Bird (the missionary on the left) on her first day in Georgia. 

Your Dear Rachel post and had a picture of celebratory donuts which made me go out and buy some donuts of my own in celebration of having a Krispy Kream shop 1 block from my house. 

On Friday we're going to Fabric World. Maybe we'll get lucky find some fabric like these I found about a month ago: 

I can't wait for you to come see what my world is like and where I frequent. Love you!
