Tonight was just a glimpse of what it must be like in heaven surrounded by everyone you love and those who have influenced you in your life.
We had so much fun having lots of Brock’s friends (you’ll have to look on his facebook page to see them – since I don’t know all their names) and families from church. Owen was on camera duty and I was on kitchen duty. I’ve decided that the best way to do refreshments has got to be to have a chocolate fountain with all the fixings. Becky and I had lots of fun walking down the aisles of Trader Joes and Fred Meyer looking for what we could put chocolate on. Becky and Brett helped me bake this morning. Brett loved putting items on the plates tonight and Linsday and Becky were great about getting the house ready. Owen was a steller strawberry destemer and angel food cake cutter and all around go to guy.
The Ards – great neighbors (Mom’s bestest friend and running buddy – Tamie)
The Stouts – Thanksgiving and Easter Family – They are our relatives here in WA and Brett’s best friend Jake.
The Rogers’s Family – Their son is serving in South Africa.
The Hartley Family – Young Men leader
The Spencer’s – Young Man Leader
The Gardiners – Their son is serving in the Mesa, AZ mission (same as Brock’s – hoping they can be comps some day)
Sister Hendricks – greatest example of service EVER!!!! I want to be like her when I grow up.
The Lunds – son and daughter serving in Brazil
The Caldwells – Scoutmaster and son serving in Mexico.
The Hansen’s – Amazing Home Teachers
The McCombs – great neighbors
The Milletts – Scoutmaster and all around amazing Mom
The spread and shot of the chocolate fountain – I’m serious – easiest party food EVER!
Yes I was really there
As you can tell we have been so blessed with amazing friends and a great ward. Brock will make missionary number 10 serving from our ward.
Sure Love Brock and are so proud of him.
Brock wants you to know that he has asked me to be posting his emails & pictures home here so starting in 9 day’s a new Monday column of Missionary Monday will start up and last for 2 years! Reason enough to keep blogging (or for you to check back at least weekly).
