Last Night Party

It has been tradition for us to do something special on Jessica’s last night.

This time we had to get ready by making tickets:


And food coupons:


And a gas card:


And a turtle:


And a GPS:


Then we made a car out of a blanket, with pillows for tires, and a pie pan for a steering wheel:


Jessica insisted that if she was taking us on a road trip, she needed one of Uncle Nathan’s driving hats:


Every road trip requires a few side trips, which is always when you have to stop for gas:


Road trips always mean having to stop for turtles!


And you always have to watch for deer:


Road trips need good driving music:


And you have to watch out for monsters!


And beware of falling rocks!


When you get tired of driving, the most fun thing is to go to a drive-in movie!

But for a movie, you need tickets!


And for snacks you need coupons!


And pillow fights are best while waiting on popcorn:


And the best movie? An old spooky black and white comedy!


We had a blast!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
