Be the change you want to see in the world...

Synopsis of Us

Lisa is au natural. She likes to have babies at home and drink slimy green liquids with large amounts of earth in them. She loves the quacks and we love her. If you are ailing, just call Lisa. She will doctor you up!

Melanie is a little bundle of energy. She's very peppy and always bouncing around. Do not drive with her. She tends to talk and visit and not watch the road. Cuts a mean hair-do!

Sarah is crazy! She loves Diet Pepsi (too much). The group photographer with many free photo shoots for her friends. Many questionable eating habits that we all ignore, hopefully they don't kill her.

Emily is an overachiever. She never sleeps and wakes up way too early so she can pratice music with her kids. She loves the earthy green drink too. Be careful, she will try to poison you with sugar-free goodies.

Jen is a dental hygienist. If you want to know which kind of gum to chew (to xylitol or not to xylitol, this is the question) she'll know.

Lana is full of crap! Literally, her house is full of crap! Yes, just stuff. If you ever need any random thing, pretty sure it's in her house... somewhere. Very competitive, don't coach children's athletics with her.

Adria is straightforward. She pretty much says it like it is. She is our community sex-ed advisor. Any questions, just ask her, she knows it all.

Marianne (one of the tall, leggy blonds) is amazing! She graduated from college while taking care of her four children and working to save the entire Chinese orphan population.

Marilyn is a perfectionist. She has to have everything at a ninety degree angle, if not, she's nervous. Hopefully this doesn't kill her. Likes to scrapbook, spends a large sum of money on this activity.

Stephanie (another tall, leggy blond) really likes to work out. Too much of a good thing is not a good thing. Nursing is her profession (not wet nursing).

Circle of Friendship

"Ours is a circle, a circle of friendship,
And just like a circle, it goes on and on
Endless, eternal, this circle of friendship
Enter our circle, for here you belong.

Laughing and singing our good times together,
And sharing the blessings sent from above,
You and I sharing this circle of friendship,
Join as we open our circle of love."
-Marilyn P. Adams

This is an OLD Young Women's sons (like 1978) that I remember from when I was little (I think my mom was the YW prez...). This was the inspiration for the gift from Jen and me, and so I wanted to share the whole song with you. If we could have fit this all onto those blocks, we would have!

I try to count my blessings all year, but of course, more so at Christmas. Our friendship is one of my most cherished blessings! I am so glad to have all of you in my life!

Merry Christmas!
