"Get to know your Bishop" night. Bill was really worried that I was gonna spill the beans on him, but I was very gentle. (Thanks Angie, for the fun pictures)

They had asked me to come up with a questionare in advance so they could split up in teams and do it like the Newleywed game. It was fun to see how much (or how little) the girls knew about him, and even funnier to see how little my girls knew.
