Two more weeks!

I am finally learning how to be a blogger.  Just call me "Thoroughly Modern Dee Dee."  Our week was a busy one filled with details like switching our cars and phones and meeting with friends for our good-bye visits.  The ward threw a Good-bye Gathering where friends brought desserts and we just talked and hugged.  It was good to see everyone - for many it will be the last time for two years.
On Friday night we had a fabulous baby shower for Myrna Mariscal and her baby Leslie.  The theme was "Cute as a Button," and so we decorated the cake and the tables with fondant buttons made by Carina, Andrea and me.  Lots of people came and many others sent gifts.  Leslie is beautifully outfitted for at least six months.
Now we are beginning our final week. and Wayne is making one "To Do List" after another.  I wonder why the lists aren't getting any shorter even though we are very busy.  My nest post will be from the MTC on Sunday night, the night we check in.  Monday, May 28, Memorial Day,  is our official check-in where we need to report at 10:30.

Soooo excited for the both of you! I can't believe the time is here. I don't know how our family your ward or the community is going to manage without you two. Big kisses and hugs!
