Create

I have the privilege of being one of the Activity Day leaders for our ward at church and I just love my calling! I've gotten to know lots of the little girls in the ward and its been fun to have that quality time with Aubrey. We meet two Wednesdays a month with the girls ages 8-11 and do things like crafts, service projects, gospel related lessons and activities and sometimes just plain fun. Aubrey and Joey went to a daddy daughter recognition night at church last weekend and had a lot of fun. We planned the night around the theme of "Create" from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk (Click to view. I love this video! It is truly a powerful message.) The girls with their dads watched the video and then one of the leaders talked about the power of creation and how we are each a beautiful masterpiece of God. The kids then got the opportunity to have some fun with their dads in being creative. One of the fun things they did was decorate a cake together. There were cakes and icing bags and all kinds of supplies to build their own cake masterpieces. Aubrey and Joey made this beautiful mountain scene-I thought it was pretty creative! Aubrey and Joey had a fun night together. And of course the night ended with eating cake(along with icecream!). I love the programs of the church and the support they give our family in helping to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
