Proud Mommy Moments~~Primary Program

It's time for those Proud Mommy Moments.  And this past Sunday, our church held its annual Primary Program where the children, for lack of a better term, run the show.  They give talks (small ones) and sing songs.  And it is all the children.  From the teeny tiniest (age 3) to the ones about done with the program overall (age 11.)  It's a long process of weekly practicing every Sunday.  And in the end, it is amazing how reverent they are.  And what a sweet gentle Spirit they always bring.

I was so proud when Ryan came to microphone to recite his small part.  He read it clearly, he did not require any aide from the teacher and he even looked out into the congregation.  I was so proud of him. (Insert big smile here)  Now comes the humbler.  As the program progressed, Ryan began to wiggle.  Okay he is only seven.  And then he started to play with his slap bracelet a little.  And then, he had it set on his wrist like a scope and was peering through it like a sniper.  His Primary teacher (a man) was doing everything he could to maintain a straight face.  I still can't decide what was funnier.  What a proud moment.

What about you?  Do you have a proud moment this week?  Link up with Emmy and KMama

Ten Things To Smile About: October

Tomorrow is Halloween??  Are you kidding me???  Where did JuneJulyAugustSeptember go?  And now tomorrow is Halloween???  We are ready.  It's just crazy.  Originally I was going to do a Random Post...

But I got distracted by a bestie and I remembered I love this meme and I had to play along.

1.  A sneak peak at one of the Halloween costumes....

2. I lied...another ANOTHER costume...but it makes me smile!
3.  Seeing and hearing the General Authorities speak during conference for my church.  And not only that, but all the Twitter feed that went with it!!!

4.  Seeing my best friend's son get baptized.  

5.  I took a huge step ....
I started college this month....officially I start class in November, but my Orientation and the initial steps were done this month.

6.  I did my first real review.  I was referred to as a "reporter" and everything!  Oh and I was given comp tickets to the show!

7.  I got my new iPhone...note the look of greed and possession in my eyes....

8.  We went to the Pumpkin Patch and Ryan went down this slide...turn the sound up to hear his girlie squeal as he comes down....
9.  It makes me smile when I can goof around ... or "embarrass" myself.

10.  And finally this picture Kristin sent to me of herself...wearing her friend's hoodie.  He is a giant compared to her as you can plainly see.
What made you smile this month???
