The Big One!!

Today I hit the Big One! Not too sure How I feel about it. Actually I do not like it at all. I think that I will hold at 29 or I will just tell everyone I am 20 10 (twenty Ten). I have definetly drilled it in my Nephews head that I am 20 10. That is what he is telling everyone...bless his heart!! My Mom and my sister threw me a surprise party!! I had no idea!! My sister in law got me to sing Karaoke, while they snuck everyone into the backyard. There I was busting a tune, while everyone in the backyard listened to me, how lovely. Good thing I have a voice of an angel!! Ha Ha!! My Nephew came and told me it was time to eat, I walked outside and there were all these these people starring at me....sneaky little buggards! I am very grateful for it,but I told them I wanted no party!!! I'm over it, it's always nice to know people love you!! This picture is of me when I was in the first grade, just wanted to show everyone how cute I used to be!!

A couple more camp photos!

So apparently I am new at this and my blog is below my pictures, that was not my plan. I am not going to try and fix it, so deal with it. Ha Ha Hopefully I will have a group photo for you very soon!!

Bless our third years!! They gave all the leaders head massages!!!
Lets just say that two out of these Four girls were my little trouble makers!!! It was all done in good fun. The one with the Crazy glasses, I think should marry one of my brothers!!!! Ha Ha!!

Camp Photos!!

These are a bunch of my second years....they are still so sweet, but absolutely terrible at picking up after themselves!!

I absolutley love these girls.....I would say that they are my favorites, but I can't have favorites!!This is a group of our JCL and YCL's they are the older girls and help us run the camp. Very spirited the whold week....Thank goodness for that.

This is one of the Stake Camp directors daughters and for some reason there are lockers in the craft area and we found it hilarious to shove some of the girls in them. She was all dressed up for a skit, but she looks like a bank robber.

These would be the notorious squirt gun girls!! Lets just say some of them were rolled around in the dirt when I caught them. Do Not Mess With Me!!!

I am now a blogger....Oh NO!!!

Hello Everyone!!

I think I have been talked into blogging because so many of my friends and family do it. I am not married and I have no kids so there is nothing to blog about, but myself. Fun for all of you. Some of you might be wondering where the nickname ShimmDoctor comes from, I actually don't know. Most of my family calls me shimmi which eventually turned into ShimmDoctor. So there you go!!

I actually just spent a week at Girls Camp with about 150 girls ranging from the ages 12-17. This is my Third girls camp where I have gone as the Stake Assitant Camp Director. Why anyone left me in charge is beyond me. This so far has been my favorite camp. I could go on and on with stories, but I will pick a few of my favorites. The theme this year was the latter day league which focused on teamwork and service. So we had a kickball tournament all week, I was the ump. My favorite game was the 4th years vs. the YCl's (5th years). Lets just say everything went wrong. One of the leaders drilled the ball at my head luckily I have cat like reflexes and it only skinned the top of my head as I was falling to the ground yelling foul ball. It was quite hilarious, I think it might have been funnier if it drilled my in the face. From that moment on everything went wrong and was hilarious, I won't tell you all about it because I am sure most of it is "you had to be there moments."
My love for pickles came known at camp and the cooks brought me a packaged pickle, which was called Big Papa, the portley pickle, well all the leaders had fun with that one. So I decided to sing a little song that goes "I love it when they call me big papa, throw your hands in the air if your a true player and wave them from here to there." Needless to say my nickname became Big Papa this year, much better than last years Biffy Queen.
We had a handicapped girl at camp this year, and what a joy she was. When she realized I wasn't married and had no children she immediatley started calling me mom. Very sweet, but A little weird I can't lie. When she wasn't calling me mom, she was calling me Sister Fanni, she could never get the Hanni. I thought that was stinkin hilarious. I haven't been called Fanni in years, brings back the good ole high school memories.
Probably one of the most rewarding parts of Girls camp is the love and the spirit that feels that camp ground. We have the most wonderful girls in our stake. We hit a few bumps in the road at camp, but I couldn't have asked for a better group of Young Women. Of course they give me a hard time, but its all in good fun. I am pretty sure I start most of it. Hey it is always fun to be 15 or 16 again. I love girls camp and I could go on for hours.....I will spare you all the details. Even with all the stress that comes with it, I would do it over and over again.

So I hope I will be able to keep this up and blog a few times a week. I love you all and can't wait to read what is going on in your neck of the woods.
