I have been lucky enough to help with the last three and I have to say that they get better and better every year. This year the theme was "Choosing The Right To Your Happily Ever After". It was so amazing to see all the hard work that went into the activity and then the girls reaction. The night before Jonathan and I went to help set up the Cultural Hall for the activity. There were a few people at the church building and they thought we were setting up for a wedding reception. (Yeah, it looked that good!) After hours and hours of planning and setting up, the girls started arriving. The older girls knew the drill and the younger girls followed along: sign in, make a name tag, and head into the Cultural Hall for the activity to start.
I was out by the sign in table, but I could hear some of their reactions to the beautiful room decorated just for them. They were sent off to their 4 classes prepared just for them: a Family Home Evening lesson that they could teach their families, PJS (prayer, journal, and scripture study), friendship bracelets, and a class on their own potential.

During the activity, I got to hold the Primary President's baby boy Kody. I was in heaven! He was such a good sport during the activity and didn't get fussy until most of it was cleaned up.

I can't wait to see what the plans are for next year!
