My next-door neighbor died 2 months ago. He was in his late eighties. He left a beautiful widow. At his funeral they said his favorite song was “You Are My Sunshine.” I thought I’d draw up a little doodle for my sweet friend, Lavon, his surviving wife.

So…we had a little Voting Party last night. It was so exciting watching the results come in as the kiddos colored their state maps in with red or blue. We ate homemade brownies and ice cream and had a lot of fun. We were disappointed that Mitt didn’t win, as he was our candidate of choice. However, we sincerely congratulate Barack Obama and we will stand behind him as United Americans. We truly live in a wonderful and blessed country and we will continue to pray for the success of it. God Bless America! I love what my church leaders said about the outcome of the election:
The First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued the following statement Tuesday:
We congratulate President Obama on winning a second term as President of the United States.
After a long campaign, this is now a time for Americans to come together. It is a long tradition among Latter-day Saints to pray for our national leaders in our personal prayers and in our congregations. We invite Americans everywhere, whatever their political persuasion, to pray for the President, for his administration and the new Congress as they lead us through difficult and turbulent times. May our national leaders reflect the best in wisdom and judgment as they fulfill the great trust afforded to them by the American people.
We also commend Governor Romney for engaging at the highest level of our democratic process, which, by its nature, demands so much of those who offer themselves for public service. We wish him and his family every success in their future endeavors.
So my kiddos played in two piano competitions yesterday and Friday. Lots of nerves beforehand and lots of relief, celebration, and yummy Cold Stone ice cream after they were done. Here is a short video of the quartet warming up before going in to perform for the judge:
Here is the cutest-little-trio-you-ever-did-see rehearsing at their piano teacher’s home before the big event:
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a “Mormon.” I love it so much. This weekend is conference weekend where we hear from our Prophet of God on the Earth today. If you have never seen conference and would like to know more about it or watch it, click here.
