Girls reporting back from EFY

Our granddaughters,Kylie and Jessica, just got back Saturday night from EFY (Especially For Youth)....
so we interviewed them a little about it, with Amy in the middle.

AND....don't miss this one of Jessica singing at the EFY talent show.
I've listened to this so many times, I've lost count.
 I can not get enough of her gorgeous VOICE. 

Tomorrow Den's daughters Kim and Kris and their families all arrive. We will party hearty! 
(My favorite way to party is to watch our kids party together.  :) 

Stay tuned for Austin's dancing video soon. He's one uninhibited boy/man on the dance floor!

Oh my goodness!! I saw this video of Jess singing for the first time this morning. I love her voice,too and it always makes me teary when I hear her sing. Can't wait to be back with her! Thanks for taking such good care of her while she hasn't been at EFY! See you soon!

Jessica is very talented! She has one of those crisp, clear voices. And it's so beautiful and unique, like Adele, or Tori Amos. Very beautiful!

And I loved the first video too, I especially loved how Kylie kept sort of 'primping' her Mom! So sweet, and such a sign of love and caring. And I LOVED how Amy imitated you! And she nailed it!
Very sweet!

Love and Prayers,

Wow, Jessica really inherited Dennis' singing voice.

Grandma Honey said...

That's what he thinks too, Tyler. :)

I always love when my kids come home from EFY! They are on this amazing gospel high. It reminds me why I do all I can to send them there.

Fun times. I am glad they had such a good time.
Wish I was there to see Kim and Kris. I bet you guys will have so much fun.

What is the name of the song Jessica is singing? And Dennis? He has a great voice? I didn't know that. Any recordings of him you could share?

Kylie and Jessica are two of the coolest girls! I want to come hang out with them! And Jessica's voice!!! That is amazing! We had a girl in our ward who just got back from EFY at BYU bear her testimony yesterday in sacrament meeting. I still remember EFY so well, I went 4 summers in a row. It is unlike any other experience you can have growing up. Have fun with everyone in town!!!

I always loved when my kids would come home from EFY. It would be pretty heavenly around our house for a couple of weeks...including great music they would play.

And speaking of great music! That Jessica can sing!


Grandma Honey said...

Darlene~ The song Jess is singing is 'Secrets.'

And when I wrote that Dennis thinks Jessica takes after him, I should have written....He WISHES he could sing like her. :)

Ditto to what McKenna said! I'm so bummed that we won't be making it out to CA for the Fourth this year! I'm sure we would have the BEST time ever.

I only went to EFY twice, but it changed my life. Literally. I'm so glad that Jess and Kylie got to go! (And go together!)

Such cute girls and I'm sure they must be fun to be around. They both look like their mothers too. Jessica has a very nice voice. In a few more years she should try out for American Idol. I'm sure you'll have a busy home for a while, but it will be fun.

She's got a beautiful voice. Loved it!!!

What a great thing for these girls to partake of in EFY. I had several nieces participating also. VERY COOL.
