Wednesday: Hahahaha inviting today outside the hospital I asked this sweet old lady who only had two teeth.. her 2 front teeth (i wonder what she'll ask for, for christmas..) If she was interested in coming to church (cow bood)... But she miss heard me and thought I asked her if she had any corn(cow pood)... Hahahahaha She frrrrreaked out because.. 1. she was wack.. and 2.. She didn't have any corn. Thai is so fun.

We came back in time to see sister pii pass her baptismal interview. Taught her how to play a hgymn on the piano (thankful for M&D who paid for piano lessons... I play in church almost every sunday... Ugh nerve racking จะตาย- But So good. THankful). @ BOM we watched the new Mormon Message! I get chills ever time I love it. And we had an easter egg hunt.. With the freakiest eggs I've ever seen.

Saturday: WENT TO THE CUTEST SHOP I'VE EVER SEEN/BEEN TO IN MY LIFE. Sumittra and I decided we'd go back every day.. :P It's called "Under the Tree" They sell little cakes and smoothies and coco yens.. And it is a little cottage thing.. And they play cute 20/30's music that i adore. I thought of Anny the WHOLE time we were there. You would LOVE IT. One day we will have a store just like that okay? Okay cool. They also played that one song while I was there! : "I tried to do hand stands for you" It was a tender mercy.. I know that shop was built here in Udon just for me. :P :)
