Five Weeks of Fun!
Whitney has been living in Virginia since the end of May '08, and it was a huge treat to get to have her home for five weeks. She arrived just before Thanksgiving, and went back to VA on December 30th. We had five weeks of fun; actually it literally felt like a party most evenings. With the rest of the teenagers and their friends hanging around, there is a considerable amount of "night life" around here during any school break. December was no exception. They stayed up late watching movies, visiting with friends, and listening to David Archuleta's new CD over and over. One Sunday, I had all four of my girls in Young Womens. Of course, Janae, Julia, Melissa, and I are usually there, so we convinced Whitney to come with us and skip Relief Society. The girls thought it was the lesson that was making me so emotional, but truthfully I was just feeling sentimental about having them all there together. What a blessing to have four daughters!
