Will You Be My Valentine?

Making rosebuds out of Hershey kisses

They had to eat the whipped cream until the
got to the bubble gum. Chew and blow a bubble

Morgan checking out her Valentines
This was a perfect little party for Morgan's class. They had a ton of fun playing games, decorating cookies and making rosebuds. This holiday is a good fit for Morgan; she is kind and loving really only showing her stinky side on occasion!
This week I got a call from the Primary President, Brooke. She was calling to tell me a story about Morgan. WARNING FLAG! There was a new little girl introduced to the class last Sunday. The girl and her mother were quite nervous. When Brooked opened the door and introduced the little girl Morgan jumped up got a chair, opened it and set it by herself. She then told everyone she knew the new girl from school and invited the new girl to sit my her. Brooke said this set a tone for the rest of the class and then everyone was happy and welcoming. Here is the part that touched my heart. Brooked pointed out that this was the way all new kids should be welcomed into class. How they should make a little movie starring Morgan and send it to all the Primary kids. This touched me because Morgan is good at that. She has a gift for noticing others in need. She will go out of her way to help another. She can be shy in certain settings but will painfully extend herself if she notices someone else hurting.
I am thankful for a child who gets what LOVE is really all about!

That's our Morgan! She is such a sweet and caring girl. Being nice comes so naturally to her. We should all try to be a little more like Missy!!! The world would be such a better place.

This is one cute girl and I love watching her dance around all the b-ball practices. She is always moving, spinning, tumbling and twirling around. Precious.
