Mesa High's Seminary went all out this year as hundreds of modestly dressed youth got together for some good eats BBQ and some splashes in the wave pool. We had a great turn out and everyone had a great time.... other than the Bailey girl who was rushed to the ER with a concussion. Poor girl, we all had a chance to pray for her quick recovery. Thanks Sis. Bori and Brother Comerford for spending your Saturday night with the youth!
Also, glass etching. it was fun and the girls jars really did turn out great! We had cupcakes while the chemical etched out our cute figurines into the class. we had stars, circles, moons, and even a cute moose! Loved it, and we can only get better from here!

Sister Farnsworth is the Martha Stewart in the YW's program. Really she is so prepared with all the best stuff a girl could want for for crafts. The Young Women this past week had such a great time making birthday cards for the seniors at the care center that Katie works at. Afterwards we had a yummy peanut butter treat and we hope that we can give just a little more happiness to those people on their birthdays!.

Today in YW, we talked about ICE CREAM! Who doesn't love a good Sundae? As a reminder, the sundae we created in class had everything from chocolate syrup and crushed candy bars, to grated cheese and mustard on top of it. Don't forget garden tomatoes and a cherry on top, of course! What?? You don't like cheese? No Mustard? Those things are DELICIOUS!! Ok... maybe not on a Sundae. Some of the activities we do during our weeks are GREAT and SUPER COOL, but maybe not quite right for Sundays.
In Exodus 20:8-11, it says "Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy. Six days shall thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it." When we keep the Sabbath Day holy, we will be blessed for keeping the commandments of our Heavenly Father.
Each girl received a cupcake ice cream cone to remind them that the toppings they put on their Sundae's reflect the things that you do on your Sundays. Remeber to top your Sundays with a cherry, instead of a tomato, and to smother it in the chocolate syrup of the spirit instead of in mustard or gravy!
