The Ward Valentine Shin Dig

Since Greg is one of the Ward Activity Committee Members, it is a non-negotiable that we attend the Ward Valentine Party. We have attended this event ever since I can remember being in the ward. Some year's have been better than others. But this year, I must say, was one of the better times we've had, and I think all those in attendance would probably say the same. It was really fun. What made the difference? It's hard to say. I know that a whole lot of people got involved in the thing, and that made it just start to roll. Before you knew it, practically everyone had a turn at the microphone and yes, some were better than others, but we all just enjoyed ourselves and had a great time. Kekau and Lei did a great job at hosting the event. They started it off and then encouraged everyone throughout the evening. Also, the Ward members were very supportive of everyone who got up and braved the karaoke machine. I thought I'd throw up a few pics of those who were in attendance and you can see how much fun they were having. By the way, our Bishop is quite the performer. He took the prize for the most memorable performance. He did the best Elvis song, I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry. I almost started screaming like it was Elvis. Of course my favorite was when Greg got up and sang a Tim McGraw rendition that was so fabulous! (I'm so lucky I get to hear him sing all the time, but it was great to hear him behind a microphone) The end was really fun too, when we all got up and sang 'We Are Family'. I know, it sounds corny right now, but when you're there and kind of punchy anyway, it's just good fun to be singing with everyone there in a big group. Here's some pics:
