  1. let me tell ya.. I love this post.. almost as much as a love THE Katelyn Allred herself!! Some favorite moments have to be:
    -favorite vegetable.. Ashley you need to try the broccoli concoction, it is actually quite delicious.
    -when you ask katie about being the relief society pres. Then she states that Kaylee should never be a dancer. Now.. in my opinion this isn't very appropriate presidential behavior.

    hahaha :) I love you two..
