Selfish Thankful Lists

I had a special FHE last night and assigned the kids to come up with a list of things they were thankful for. I told them that I know they are all good kids and that they would obviously put things like, Heavenly Father, the Plan of Salvation, the Scriptures, etc, etc, on their list. I told them to skip those and make a selfish list. A list that spoke about their personality.

Adrian and I were also supposed to do this. We didn't get our list done. Adrian picked up his place card and pretended to read off of it. I got so tickled that I could not stop laughing.

C.O.U.L.D. N.O.T. S.T.O.P.!!!!!!

It was pitiful. Then the kids started to ask him why this or that wasn't on his list and he would say stuff like," well that is number 6, do you want me to skip ahead? " This got me so tickled that my cheeks actually started to hurt. Laughing injuries!

So I made the kids give me their lists so I could print them. Molly lost hers while sitting at the table.

Yeah, don't ask....

Hi I saw your post on Light Refreshments. The Bishop you were referring to in Lincoln is Bishop Madsen. He is indeed a insurance salesman and did have 2 daughters (blond hair-Toni and Tammy). It was Lincoln 2 ward I believe. Along with Lisa Valentine I also lived in that ward Julie Gould. We graduated from high school in 1992 so we might had been too young to have known you well. Other big families in Lincoln were Blads, Schwendimens, Taylors, Price, Fords, Haake, Randall, Habel. Let me know if you're interested in getting in touch with any of them...I may be able to! Hope you enjoyed your time in Lincoln.
