The New First Presidency

So yesterday the new First Presidency for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was announced -- so when we had our Family Home Evening last night Chris was in charge of the "activity" . He got onto the internet and printed off

President Thomas S. Monson --- 16th Prophet

President Henry B. Eyring 1st Counselor

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf - 2nd Counselor

So for the activity he said that we could draw a picture of one of these men, or a picture with all three in it. Here are pictures of what was drawn :

Here is a picture that Thomas our 3 year old drew:

Heidi drew this one and she is 5 1/2 ( I think the blue things are hands??)

Katherine drew this one. Can you tell who it was supposed to be?? Not too bad for a nearly 7 1/2 year old . ( Henry B. Eyring)

All I have to say here is Kaylee our 8 1/2 year old has quite the imagination. She wanted to draw President Monson, and then went so bold as to make him "President Monson gone Wrestler" The little thought bubble says : You like to rasl ( wrestle)? But the story didn't start there. When she only had the suit and the head drawn she added arms and hands and obviously looking at the picture you could see why I took one look at it and started laughing. Chris looked and then he started laughing. Kaylee had no clue why we were laughing so much and then said, " what is the hands?" We said that it could be. And she covered up the hand part and said, Middle finger, middle finger etc... for a few more times and then -- Chris asked her if she knew what the "middle finger" meant? She said, " Yes, its a bad word"

Chris and I were shocked that she actually knew that much. Katherine of course, wanting to know everything, says : What word does it mean? Chris came back with : I'm here to teach you good things, so I'm not telling you. ----- I don't think that Kaylee did this intentionally but seeing what she was drawing and how it turned up .... well what can you say. We did have a few good laughs last night.

Then Chris produced this one and we joked around saying that we should submit them to the Friend. So it would be submitted like this: Chris R. age 33 -- wouldn't that be funny if we sent it in and they actually put it into the Friend??? We do have some weird moments of "FUN" in our house and we all love to laugh so last night was a fun one.

I on the other hand didn't draw one, because I was taking care of Ethan making sure that he wasn't getting into the crayons, and markers and such and then I wasn't feeling very well either. Maybe next time I'll have to do the same thing.


  1. Ha ha ha! All those pictures made me laugh. What a good idea for FHE!

  2. Great blog! I laughed the whole way through. I love the friend idea...I think all the pictures should be submitted including Chris'. That would be way too funny!

  3. I am so glad that you posted this! It was way too cute!


I like feedback.... so go ahead and leave me some comment love. Thanks.
