Our ward had their primary program today and it was awesome!! This years theme is "My Eternal Family", I have never felt the spirit so strong during a primary program. All the kids did a good job memorizing their parts and some even spoke their parts in Samoan. The best part of the whole program was the singing. I was so amazed to see ALL the kids singing even the sunbeams knew the words to the songs. It was like a choir of angels singing with them it was so powerful and strong! While the kids sang the new primary song "Family is of God" I felt the spirit so strongly! That is my new favorite song and then after they finished Ana got up and said her part, she said it perfectly "Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ", it was so cute it brought tears to my eyes so see my baby girl getting so big. I know I'm gonna be a bawl baby when she has to start school!! Maybe because it was Ana's first time participating in the primary program I enjoyed it so much and also it was my first time in 6 years to get to sit in the audience and enjoy the program!! I wish I could have video taped it, it was the best primary program yet!! We have some great primary leaders and I am so grateful to them for all their hard work in teaching our kids, especially the primary chorister she did an amazing job teaching all the kids the songs. I just can't say enough it was a great program!!
I can't upload pictures for some reason I don't understand. But I just wanted to update my blog since its been a month already. Ana is in the "WHY" stage and she is constanly asking "WHY this" and "WHY that" I do my best to answer her honestly and the best way I can to a four year old but the other day she asked "Why do boys have long tita's?" (tita's is samoan for weewee's, peepee's whatever you may call it in your home) I about fell on the floor out of shock and holding in my laughter. This question came about I later found out after spending time at her cousins house she watched my sister in-law changing her sons diaper and I guess Ana asked her about boys parts as well seeing that his didn't look anything like hers. My sister in-law said that she told her boys have diffrent parts then girls or something and then Ana said "Yeah and my dad has a big one!" LOL Gotta love this stage no shame at all, what do ya do!
On the other end Penina is starting to try and talk more she can say "Cheers" and "Hi" and something that sounds like "Hello" She loves cell phones and pretends to talk on the phone chattering baby talk with her hand on her ear, its so cute!! When Penina see's something that amuses her she says "OOOO DAT" I love it, she is such a funny girl, she laughs at herself when she knows she is being silly. She loves to play with Ana and tried to do everything she does! I love seeing my two girls play together, its melts my heart when Ana looks up and says "I love my sister and I think she loves me too"
