Bunco Night

I have been lucky enough to be adopted by these wonderful ladies who are in a different ward to come and play Bunco once a month. It was just by chance that I became associated with them. I work in the childwatch area at the YMCA and Lainie, the lady in the striped shirt on the floor, came in pregnant with twins! She would bring her other two daughters in and each time she came I would think, "She is so nice and always so cheerful, she would make a great mormon!" I kept that thought in the back of my mind trying to think of ways to incorporate it into our conversation. Then one day her youngest daughter, Elyse, mentioned that they were going to Utah for vacation. I thought, what are the odds that she isn't a member and has relatives in Utah and has the mormon mannerisms? Turns out that she was and there was a whole slew of them coming into the Y and I had no idea. They totally embraced me and included me into their get togethers. The fun I have had with these women has encouraged me to start groups with the ladies of my own ward and even start this blog. So I say "Thank you!" to all you ladies for opening your doors to me and making me feel like one of the group!

You are so stinkin' cute! We are the lucky ones!!! That is such a funny story. It still makes me chuckle AND - you gave me the greatest compliment EVER! Thanks for helping keep me sane (and not wanting to strangle my children);0). I sure LOVE you Kara!
