My first act as Laurel Advisor was to help with the Halloween Party - which required I come in costume.
I got a new church calling last Sunday. I was released as Assistant Primary Activity Day Leader and sustained as Laurel Advisor. I will miss my cute little Primary girls, but as I told them we will still be friends! I am happy to be back in Young Women; it's not a secret that Young Women is my favorite place to serve in the Church. I love my Laurels; they were Beehives when I was YW President.
I was thinking that I should list all the callings I've had, so here's the list I can remember:
Stake Sunday School Secretary (at BYU with Marc Wilson (quarterback) as president)
Homemaking Leader (back in the day)
Ward Newsletter Editor
Sunday Bulletin Editor
Activity Committee Chairman
Wolf Den leader
YW Camp Director
YW Camp Assistant
YW Camp Cook
Young Single Adult Leader
Mission President Companion
Temple Ordinance Worker
I was a temple ordinance worker in the Seoul Temple in 1985, and just today I was called and set apart as a temple ordinance worker in the Mount Timpanogos Temple - Wednesday mornings at 5 am!
I love serving in the Church!
It's all good

Today I did something I've been wanting to do for awhile: Horseback Riding at Sundance.
During the summer the Sundance Nordic center becomes the Sundance Stables, so they take horse rides on the same trails that I ski in the winter. Of course, fall is the perfect time to do this and see all the leaves changed. It was a delightful ride; my horse, Beau, was a perfect gentleman and it was everything I hoped it would be.
The colors just don't show up in a picture as vibrant as they are in real life, especially when using my iphone to take the pictures.
The yurt on the right is the same one they use for the Nordic center in the winter. Here's the corral with the horses.

We had a Relief Society Retreat last night at the Bringhurst's cabin in Fairview Canyon ~ very close to one of my favorite places on earth: Camp MiaShalom. I loved being able to hike to Lone Pine and view the beautiful fall colors, and see the night sky away from the city lights ~ two of my favorite activities. Along with visiting with my sisters, eating yummy food, and knitting up some newborn baby beanies for humanitarian services ~ a lovely 24 hours away from home!
on our way to Lone Pine ~ check out those awesome clouds!
