Today's a big day here at the McClendon house! Our last home visit! I'm looking forward to writing all about it later and posting tomorrow morning.

In other news, I've been helping plan a children's musical for our church over the last couple of months and it's been a lot of fun! The performance is this Sunday night and the kids have been working hard to memorize their lines and the song lyrics. We have a lot of solos, too! The musical is called "The Best Christmas Present Ever!" and if you haven't heard of it, you should look it up and check out the songs. The story presents the gospel and the story of Christmas in a unique way. I'm excited for the kids - they get to be witnesses this Sunday night!

And just for fun . . .

I've been reminiscing a lot lately about the early years of my relationship with my now husband. One of my favorite memories from college is represented in the following photo:

Hope our college minister doesn't mind the cameo here!

This picture was taken in Guatemala, when Hampton and I joined over 40 other college students to take the Gospel to the people there. It was an amazing trip and it basically marks the point when my friendship with Hampton became something more. The reason I love this picture so much is that our college minister has legitimate claims to have helped the matchmaking process. Hampton and I were in a drama group together throughout the first two years of college and we were actually cast as girlfriend and boyfriend in one particular ongoing sketch. It was all College Minister's idea. :)

By the way, can any of my college friends name that skit we did every week for a while? BONUS POINTS FOR YOU!

So, now you've seen various stages of our friendship/relationship/marriage. Congrats! Hampton loves to talk about the earliest days, so maybe you'll get a story or two out of him sometime soon. :)

"See" you all tommorrow with a summary of our last home visit!


  1. South Side! :) (Right? It was short-lived, I know, but I think that was it...)
