And She's Off!

Brooklyn left the MTC for Portugal yesterday and was able to call us last night during her layover in Texas. It was Mom's birthday so we threw a big celebration with lots of yummy food! She called at about five-thirty and we all gathered around to listen and talk.

Marmsie and Pops

 She was flying with 43 other missionaries all going to Lisbon, Portugal! That is the most they have had coming in at one time. She recited The First Vision to us in Portuguese and it was so amazing!

 It was so good to talk to her and hear her voice. I even dressed Norah in an outfit just for Brooklyn! :) She will be a great missionary and we're all so excited for her.

After hanging up we felt pretty gloomy, so Momma and I went to a movie. We went to see "Snitch". It wasn't exactly inspiring after talking to Brooklyn for nearly two hours but it was fun to get out!
