We got up at 6 today to open presents before church at 9:30. We all wore our matching jammies, that say Whistling Prairie on them. We didn't wear the pajamas to church, bu we did spend a good portion of the day in comfort. At noon we met with the Stake President to be with Amanda as she was set apart to be a missionary again. She is leaving tomorrow morning to return to her mission in Germany. We're going to miss her. This past three months together with Amanda has been all the more special, as it was so unanticipated, but full of so many meaningful events.
Coda got a new doggie bed, which she seemed happy about. She had outgrown her little puppy one, which had some pretty unsightly stains in it. Aunt Verlene sent Coda a toy that she fell in love with. We were happy she was distracted from rooting through our goodies. Yesterday she ate 4 of the chocolate chip cookies that Kay had made for us! We think it wasn't enough to make her sick, but has definitely given her a taste for refined sugar! She was a naughty doggie, but she is so cute!
