And the drumroll please...

Today was an exciting day. I got a phone call from the post office this morning telling me that Landon's mission call had arrived. Woo-hoo. And after a long day of work we assembled the (very loud) family to find out where he will be spending his next two years. So fun.

P.S. There's about nine seconds of blue screen before it starts so hang in there, it's a comin'.

P.P.S. There's been many a discussion amongst my extended family members about how loud we the extended family can get when we congregate together. And after watching this video again this morning I say holy crack-a-toley people. Be still wild beasts, be still.

P.P.P.S. If you can't watch the video I'll post later about where Landon's going and also share a fun story about it.

Yes! The South!! That's the same mission all the Elders in my MTC group went to. Landon will love the south--it is awesome there! Congratulations to Landon! You think that was loud? That was nothing compared to our extended family gatherings. :)

What Amy said...The South!!! I went to North Carolina. He'll love it!

And about the noise...my four boys by themselves make more noise than that on a very regular basis!

thx so much for letting us be there! That was really cool and even though we are so very loud...it was a great experience for all the loud cousins! Ha Ha I don't think it seemed that loud when we were there. I'm so glad we live so close to all the loudness cuz it's so much fun!
