New Beginning...

These are my amazing young women (except Kelcey who couldn't make it) and my fellow leaders at our New Beginnings night last night! Don't think i've ever blogged about the Glenorchy ward Young Women....but they are FABULOUS...and it is an honour to serve them!

Thai Pie Party!

FHE was at the Doyle Dwelling tonight...Cob's uncle owns that new pie shop in the 6 ways (Launny)...yes mum THAT ONE!...So Lisa bought back some pies for cob that had to be eaten by tomorrow so it was PIE PARTY time! The Busy Kitchen bees!

The awesome pie stack!
The ever industrious Jacob decided that eating off newspaper and catalogues would save alot of washing up...so here's the girls trying to decide who to eat off...




mmm...Cob assured us that there was a 'Thai Pie' which was pretty much a Thai meal in a pie...




However we didn't come across one in this stack!


We DID come across a steak and bacon pie...which bought about many Bacon jokes especially upon the discovery that THE Scott Bacon lives across the road!




Check out the messy table and demolished pie stack!
Thanks Cob for the pie...What a guy...gotta fly...
Bye.

Milkshake!

Big Weekend! Everyone was in town for the UYC training...so friday night we decided to do my favourite 'when your bored on a friday night' activity ... Go to K-mart pick Gross outfits and take pictures!! Fiona and Bek are going to 'frash me' for putting these up...
But the outfits are AMAZING especially the size 27 maxi dress...



I'm pretty sure I could pull this outfit off at Church next Sunday!

After training (Cause we wearn't sick of each other yet) Most of the YSA met up for some ultimate frisbee at Landsdowne...it got dark pretty quickly (bummer winter is on the way!) So we had to give up frisbee and entertain ourselves with...Foot races (100m...Campbell thrashed us all)...Red Rover....What's the time Mr Wolf...Giants Treasure and Swing Competitions!...It was all VERY thirsty work...so off to the bakehouse it was...being quite pov we all threw in some change for a communal milkshake...
Behold...



The milkshake was Devine!...Didn't get much of it though with a MILLION others!...






Pass it on...pass it on...







Then as a tribute to Alex we checked out the fairy lights in salamanca and got some snaps...I need a better camera or some photography classes though...







hmm who's got the hairiest nose!

End of Summer...

...and what a summer it was!....first day of Autumn today! Time for the trees to lose their old leaves look ugly for a while in preparation for a beautiful spring growth....hmm...So how does one spend the last Weekend of Summer?
ROAD TRIP OF COURSE!
So the story goes that I needed to deliver Simon's amazing pathfinder with heated leather MOVING when you turn the car off seats and sunroof to Westbury...and this just happened to coincide with Devonports AWESOME...'we aren't having a lame dance'...Stake Conference activity at the Devonport pool...So after roping in Campbell, Cob, and Fiona...we set off on our amazing journey...We managed to reenact pracilla queen of the dessert through campbell town thanks to the sunroof and arrived at the pool pretty much on time after spending 5 MILLION hours waiting for our KFC...Afta the pool it was off to maccas for Hot choccies with the Northern crew...Look at my amazing cake!....oh and the cake monster spotted it too! (p.s Campbell CHOSE to sit by himself...and DID infact have a good time...despite what these pictures depict...haha)Saturday was Stake YSA activity day...i'm not joking when I say this was probably one of the BEST activities i've ever been too...and i've been in ysa a LONG time so that's saying something! We headed to Risdon Brooke Dam... The crew... Split into teams and played flags...the twist being that to catch the other team members out you had to hit them with a water bomb filled with coloured JEllY or CUSTARD!! It was SO much fun...Here are some after shots...Check out the damage!...
Elle is praying this doesn't stain!...





hmm nice!....
We were told to wear clothes we didn't like...knew that Adelaide convention top would come in handy one day!



The weather wasn't the best...so we decided that Saturday night would be best spent sharing with Camille (a ysa visiting from france) our favourite 'it's winter in Hobart' activity... Mountain SLAMS!!


This was one of the first YSA things that Sam Sullivan attended since returning from his mission...

So we decided to freak him out a bit...
5 boys...5 girls...the mountain...the lights...the buble....the romance...the PROPOSAL!

haha...all in good fun...who would propose on the mountain anyway...what a LAME idea! (jks simon...jks!)
Tha Boyz....Oshare des ne? (New word from Sam..was good to brush up on my awesome Japanese skills...he was pretty impressed...i'm pretty fluent hey Mel?? haha)

Tha girlz




...and that's it
