Pres & Me
It was SOOOOOOOOOO good to see those that came. It was surprising how many people I actually remembered and how we could talk just like it was yesterday. I'm so glad I went and was able to catch up with everyone. President and Sis. Larkins had it catered with the best japanese food! It was so great of them to do that for all those that came. I didn't get nearly all the pictures of everyone that I wanted, mostly because we were talking so much I forgot to pull my camera out til it was time to go!
To those of you who didn't go....well, Sis & President Larkins are going to for sure have a reunion in Salt Lake City next October. They want to get the word out so everyone has as much time to prepare and save and plan to come!! It would be wonderful to see you all again!
I think the sweetest thing of all was hearing the next day in a conference session that the church announced to build a temple in Japan, Sapporo!! It's truly a miracle. I always hoped for this day to come, but never knew how close the members of Hokkaido were to getting one. I am so touched by this I just can't be thankful enough for this miracle. I hope to get over there to see the dedication of the Japan, Sapporo Temple in the near future. It's simply amazing.

Stacy, you are cute pregnant!

I did a double take because I saw the picture with David StJulien. He's an old family friend (Jacob's friend) from our old ward.
