The BEST Family Home Evening in a long time....

Someday I'll post about our wonderful Christmas vacation to Sacramento, but today I'm just going to do a quick post about our Family Home Evening lesson tonight...

Five year old Christopher was in charge. He loves legos. I mean LOVES legos. I don't know that he got more than a present or two for Christmas that didn't have something to do with legos. Sooooo... for FHE tonight we dumped out the lego bucket and told everyone to make something that had to do with a scripture story. We all guessed the stories and then discussed them at the end.

JJ and his lego scene... The apostles didn't catch any fish. Jesus told them to cast their nets on the other side of the boat. The nets came up full of fish - so many that the boat almost sang.
Kelly illustrated the story of Jesus traveling to the temple with His family and being left there. When Mary and Joseph went back to find Him, Jesus was teaching in the temple.
Christopher built a wall and had Samuel the Lamanite on top. The other two people threw rocks and arrows at him but nothing ever hit Samuel (see the "rocks" on the green ground?).

When Kelly gave the closing prayer she was thankful for the best FHE. Success!
