Happy Lincoln's Birthday!

It's kind of depressing to think that I wouldn't know that it's Lincoln's birthday if it weren't for our pretty new calendar. But dude, it's got holidays from all over the world listed! It's awesome!

Today, toward the end of Relief Society, the teacher started mentioning how some guy, I guess the Elder's Quorum president (shows how well I know our ward. eheh), was going to be coming and hopefully she could keep talking until he did. We didn't have a clue what was going on until he finally came and started talking about how much the Elder's Quorum appreciates the Relief Society, and then Athena said something along the lines of, "Oh, duh, it's Valentine's Day." And then the entire Elder's Quorum came in and handed out roses and caramel apples. It was cute. Though we're wondering why these apples from the Chocolate Factory seem to have no chocolate anywhere near them. Still, they look really good.

According to our home teacher, only about four guys in the priesthood knew that this was the plan. They ended their meeting about ten minutes early and then told all the guys to go to the kitchen, and they're all like, "Sweet! Food!" And then they made it to the kitchen and realized that Valentine's Day is on Tuesday.

Today I'm thankful for being invited to lunch and getting to talk to people, caramel Hershey's kisses, roses, caramel apples, and the Emancipation Proclamation.

And now, we're off to celebrate Lincoln's birthday by saving the world from Lavos.
