The First Presidency and Thomas Trains...
So...Russ told me I needed to blog the cuteness of our little Cody. Before President Faust passed away, we were teaching our kids the names of the First Presidency with the pictures in a Family Home Evening. As we were talking about the names, Cody got giddy and excited that "they were named after trains!" I never thought about it before, but since Cody's life right now is based around the Thomas trains, we finally understood what he meant. As we talked about Gordon B. Hinckley, Thomas S. Monson, and James E. Faust, he got so excited they were named after his toy trains Gordon, Thomas, and James! Well, after Pres. Faust passed away and Henry B. Eyring was put in...Yes, once again total excitement to have one of them named after his train Henry! Pretty funny, but good that he totally remembers who they are. He used to just look at the picture and call them Gordon, Thomas, James, and Henry, but now he is actually putting last names with them, too. He had a little confusion when Elder Uchtdorf was put in, because there are no trains named Dieter! But, hopefully somehow he'll make it through...
