Fun With The Youth-Part 2

Last Wednesday, someone kidnapped Bishop Wood!

The young Detectives had to figure out who it was.

The Suspects (sorry some of the photos are really blurry)

Sis. Pheasant An accomplished musician who is grumpy with the bishop because he wouldn't approve her music choice.

Brother Adams- the Elder's Quorum President and an avid golf nut.  Bishop beat him at the last tournament.

Sister Grace, the activities committee leader, she thinks the bishop has stiffed her.

Sister Snow, A.K.A the black widow.  She wants to date the bishops son.

Professor Prune is very irritated with the bishops grammar!

Brother Brown hates the bishop's use of baseball illustrations.

Sister Spears is considering being offended by the bishops talks.

Colonel Musket A good army man who disagrees with the bishops political choices

Ben Burnsides loves to cook dinners for all the activities but did the bishop make fun of this short tempered man?

Bubba is the Bishops mechanic but he has a bit of a conspiracy theory complex.
The detectives had to question the suspects to figure out what weapon was used, what room the crime took place in and of course who did it.

There was a police officer...

and if the detectives broke the rules, they got thrown in jail...

But they could always plead their case

to the judge!

In the end, the kidnapper was caught and the case was solved.

I think the youth had a great time, I know I did.

Fun With The Youth--Part 1

Okay, don't everyone pass out.  I know I have been a horrible blogger as of late but it has been a little (okay a whole lot) busy.

I would try to get caught up but there is just to much to mentions and I am sure it would bore most of you anyway.

One big thing that happened was I got a new calling.  (about two months ago.)  I am now the Young Women's president of our ward.  I loved serving with R.L and D.W and the others.  I was sad to see them go onto other places to serve.  I am not sure how the girls feel about this change but I have to say I LOVE my new calling (that is when I am not scared to death of my new calling!)

The best part is I get to hang out with all of our fun youth.  

In August the bishop gave all the youth a challenge to read the D&C by October. Those who took and finished the challenge would get to go to a corn maze. Last week we loaded up 5 boys, 5 girls and 4 leaders who finished the challenge along with the Bishop and his wife and went to Cornbellys at Thanksgiving Point. Besides the corn maze there were lots of other things to do. Here are just a few of the many photos I took (and some I borrowed from D. )

It rained and SNOWED while we were there.  I did a lot of hanging out at the fire pits.


Guess who was the biggest pansy in the "haunted cave?"  Yep D3 and D4 screamed all the way through it!!

It was so tempting to leave her there!

Thanks Bishop and you wonderful Youth.  You really are the best.
