On Friday we headed up to Salt Lake to my parents home to help my sisters get things ready for a surprise party for my mom. She turned 60 last month, but we waited a little while before we threw her a party because of schedule conflicts, and because we really wanted to catch her by surprise. It turned out great!. She was so surprised and it was fun getting together with family and friends to show are love for her. Plus, we had the best cake and mint brownies (mmmmm :) that we ordered from Schmidt's pastry. I still have leftovers. They're the best!
On Saturday evening we got together with JR's family again. JR's dad took all the boys to a baseball game with his ward. So, the kids and I had fun hanging out with JR's mom and sisters. Cali sure loves spending time with them. And, any night I don't have to cook is a plus :D.
To top the weekend off we had a great Sabbath day today. Well, a great spiritual growth day I guess you could say. I got set apart as the 1st counselor in my wards primary presidency. I've never had a major calling like this before, so it'll definitely require much more from me, but I know I'll grow from it and I'm actually looking forward to stretching and serving more. Plus, I get to work with JR, since he's still the senior primary chorister. He's been so sweet and supportive with my new calling. I guess time will tell how things go, but so far I'm excited. The ladies I get to work with are amazing, so if nothing else we'll have a great time together :). Receiving this calling confirms even more to me how much Heavenly Father knows us individually and how he gives us opportunities to grow and become better. When I got called in to see the bishop, one of his counselors asked me if I was ready to receive more blessings. I knew I was in for something big (well, big for me :), but I really liked how he put what he said. I was in a position of ease and comfort with my life and I'm actually looking forward to serving more because I know that I'll be greatly blessed because of it. I just feel humbled knowing that Heavenly Father hasn't given up on me and still wants me to become all that he knows I can be with his help. Like I said, it's a humbling feeling.
So, there's my great weekend! I'm sure you're all wondering where the pictures of my adventures are, but apparently I forgot I had a camera this weekend. Sorry! I hope you all had awesome weekends as well and hopefully I'll get to read about it on your blogs :).
