My week with Missionaries

A couple of weeks ago we had the missionaries in our home for dinner. Elder Grabinger was on splits with Elder Taggart. It is always wonderful to have the missionaries in our home. They are amazing missionaries.
Then the day before transfers I met with Elder Christensen, Elder Brown, Elder Friedman and Elder Pectol for lunch at Red Robin Restaurant.,  It was Elder Christensen's birthday.

Then Sister Holman and Sister Holsclaw showed up to meet the Elders for P-Day activities.

They are all such amazing young people. They are doing a wonderful job of representing the Lord out here in Tennessee. Their parents should be very proud of them!!!

Bishop's Storehouse

October 24th
Our ward had an assignment at the Bishop's storehouse. You see here the YW President, Elder's Quorum President, Primary President and Relief Society President.
This is the closest I have ever lived to the Bishop's storehouse and cannery. I only takes about 25 minutes to get there.
What an absolutely fun morning of service.

Sister Visit

October 17-21
Barbara flew out and we got to play. Of course we made the rounds of the local Antique shops and then we went to the Appalachian History Museum.

This is a little Scottish calf someone donated. 

There were live musicians singing Blue Grass.
I tried to download the video of my mom dancing along with the musicians but it was too long. I'll add it to the Reunion CDs.

Here is our teacher Barb in an old 19th century school house.

Beautiful Norris Dam with all the fall colors.

Dollywood is a must and then we went to the Comedy Barn for an evening show and laughed our heads off.

Thanks so much to my mom for making these visits possible and dropping everything to come out and help me. I dearly love my family and am grateful to have such wonderful sisters. Tennessee doesn't seem so far away now that some of you have come to see where I live.
