Our primary presidency gave each family a spotlight sheet to fill out at the beginning of the year. One Sunday afternoon while Steve and I were napping ( I love our new early schedule!) my sweet children sat around the kitchen table and filled out the "Lange Family" spotlight. Here are some highlights:
Who are the people in your family?
Mom, Dad, H, E, G, T and a dead pet fish
Where are your favorite places to visit?
Alabama, Utah and Canada (We have never been to Canada.)
What is a favorite family Christmas tradition?
Lighting the menorah (Do I need to explain? While we do believe in the miracle that the menorah represents, we don't have one in our home. . . )
What are your favorite things to do together as a family?
Go to separate rooms and watch TV. (To be honest - this is not a lie - we do enjoy TV and we don't usually all sit in the same room while watching it -- but do you think I would have put this down if I had been the one to fill this paper out?????? NO WAY!)
So when we read this together as a family we all laughed a lot and I tucked the paper away thinking I need to ask for a new one. So you can imagine my surprise when Grace told me we were the spotlight family. HMMM. . . I think Steve got a big chuckle out of this one.
