We Got Some SPRING in Our Step at Kid-Richment!

Kid-Richment is a time for Moms, Grandmas, Aunts, Sisters, Babysitters or ANYONE else who wants to come to bring kids to the gym and to RUN, L AUGH, PLAY, and get to know each other! It's also supposed to be a BREAK from the regular routine! We always plan games, crafts, and a potluck lunch! We'd love to see you next time!

The small (but VERY cute) group that came to March's Kid-Richment enjoyed a thrilling indoor romp through all things SPRING! We came in from the drizzly outdoors and felt a little sunshine as we watched the kids RUN FREE without coats! (To watch the video clips just click on the arrow in the left hand bottom corner of the movie box.)

We made Edible Easter Birds' Nests:

To make these at home, you just need:
Whipped Cream
Jelly Beans
Coconut colored green with food coloring (which you don't see here because Marie ate it all!)

BALLOON RACES! (I've never seen anyone run with so little space between their chubby feet and the ground!)

Relief Society Movie--Part One

Here's the movie we spent hours, (days, weeks!) on last year to celebrate the ROLLING HILLS RELIEF SOCIETY! It is definitely worth watching. I found myself reviewing it after midnight when the house was quiet with tears rolling down my cheeks. How I ADORE the sisters in our ward! If you want to watch the whole thing, you'll have to watch part one and then part two (the file was too big for blogger to upload all of it)

Enjoy the movie! I just LOVE listening to the wit and wisdom of the sisters in our ward combined with the comfort from our General Relief Society leaders! I also ADORE seeing your faces flash up on the screen! I love our Relief Society!!!! (Too many exclamation points? Probably, but I really mean it!)

I've tinkered with the sound and the background music, so you should be able to see and hear everything (except this time you don't have to watch Jann's comments three times--unless, of course, you want to!)

You can also watch the shorter version without the personal interview clips below.

Feel free to leave comments! Just click on the word "comments" below and let's get a conversation going with sisters in our ward!

This is the video put together by the Church to celebrate the Relief Society's birthday. It may take a minute to work, but it is worth watching!

We want to make sure that you all know how much we love you and appreciate all the MANY, MANY kindnesses that you have shown us and our families this past month. Thank you for the food, prayers, hugs, and love you have given us! You are truly disciples of the lord.

Love, Chris and Deby Leishman
