Sometimes I see bits and pieces of my own life in these young women. Sometimes I see bits and pieces of them in me. And every Sunday, when I try to teach them some good Gospel principal, I hope and pray that it finds a little place in their brain and in their heart and stays there forever and that they will someday think back and say, "ah, Sister V taught me that."
Well, back to the whole Laurel shower idea....
So, I suggested having one for our Laurels. I'm not sure how well the idea was received, but I was approved to move forward with it. So, I've been working on the decor and the food and the invites and such and everything is coming together. It's just two days away and I still have a number of things to do - mainly clean up this catastrophe of a house. I'll post more when the shower actually happens, but for now...this is a sneak peek...

|The beginnings of the pom poms that will be hanging around the house. This one is only half "fluffed."|
|The hanging tag that will hang on the "gift" I am giving them.|
|The stack of boxes of gifts all ready to be wrapped with tulle.|
