An Evening of Excellence

I'm the Personal Progress leader in our ward and was in charge of our Evening of Excllence that we had last night. It thankfully went really well and all the girls and their parents came. We focused on the temple and had neat speakers and musical numbers and video presentations. But I am glad it's done! We have a great group of Young Women who are beautiful, sweet, sensitive, fun...
...and a little bit crazy, so I fit right in. :)

Here's all the girls with the leaders who helped me so much to make the night a success. I love my calling!

I don't know why this ended up being sideways because I took it horizontally and it looks right in the folder, so I don't get it. Anyway, this is the cake that I did for the night. (It's the Young Women torch and theme in case you can't tell. :D) Sophie was disappointed it wasn't another birthday cake for her, but luckily there was a little left over so she could still have some.

I am always impressed at how you use your talents to build the Lord's Kingdom. Aren't you glad you took that cake-decorating class and that you keep using it so that you don't lose it?!
The cake turned out beautifully well!

Aahh...Young Womens. Sad to say, I hated Young Womens. But I'm sure I would've loved it if I had an awesome advisor like you! Way to be the coolest YW leader ever, and also a great example! (And also an amazing cake decorator...)

I just got called as the 2nd counselor in the YW in our ward. They put me in charge of Personal Progress too. We definitely need to keep in touch via email with ideas and what not! I'll need all the help I can get! (:
