Shakin' the Dogs

To mentally prepare for the two tests that I have today, I have decided to tell you all about last night. First, some background information. My best friend, Steph Fisher, is going on a mission next Wednesday to Portland, Oregon, ASL speaking. Therefore, on Monday night I decided I was going to throw a going away party for her at my house, and I'm so very glad that it came together.

A few of the posse friends came up from SLC earlier in the day, around the time that I got out of school. We played some Guitar Hero and other XBox 360 games, and a sweet game named Bohnanza (really fun card game for 2-6ish players). Around 8 I decided it was time to make dinner - delicious French toast. Yum. A little while after that, the peeps from here in town showed up. I wish I had the whole night on video, because the whole time we were laughing and telling stories and making fun of each other and just having a great time! Did I mention we were laughing? Here's why: Heather can't control what she says after 10:00. Therefore, she said a lot of weird and hilarious things. For instance, we were all laughing and she thought her laugh was too loud. She said (and I quote), "My laugh is so loud it's shaking the dogs!" Later she tried to explain that she thought that was a normal saying. I wish I had a better memory so I could tell you everything that was said and laughed about. Hopefully everyone will send me their pictures soon because I didn't take any on my own camera.

I'm going to close by saying how much I love my friends. They are sooo fun to be with and are amazing examples of having testimonies in the Gospel. I'm proud of Fisher for her decision to go on a mission and I know she will be a great missionary. She's a wonderful friend, and that will take her far. I love you guys!! (and all you other people who didn't get invited because you don't know Fisher, I love you too!!)
