"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

The celebrity that lacey will be teaching and dancing with is Lance Bass, from the pop group, 'N'Sync!' Lacey has nothing but great things to say about Lance....he is a great student, learns quickly, asks questions, has a great sense of humor, and best of all, she says he truly is a nice guy! We want lacey and 'lancey'.....too go all the way to the final....and with your support, they can do this! so many of you went beyond the call of duty when lacey and benji were competing on 'So You Think You Can Dance' made posters, came to the tapings, had calling parties, etc....everything you did made such a difference in the final outcome of those shows! i hope that you will support lacey once again in her new professional journey! I hope that you will watch the show weekly and vote for 'lancey!' the show premieres on monday, sept. 22, 23 & 24....a 3 night extravaganza!!! i dont have any information on tickets for the tapings yet, but when i do, i will send out another email explaining how to get them. in the meantime, i thank you again for all that you have done for both of my children, because of your support, they have been able to achieve their dreams.....thank you so much! vote for 'Lancey!'laurie kauffman ps....i have posted a pic of 'Lancey'....i must say, they look amazing together!

As many of you know that Benji Scwimmer (From the Moreno Valley Stake and a return missionary) took the title of So You Think You Can Dance, his sister didn't do so bad herself the next season. As you've read above Lacey will be on Dancing With the Stars. I'm so excited to watch. It's so much fun to see people on T.V. that you know and cheer on the MEMBERS of the church. And hello she is dancing with Lance. I loved N-SYNC!!!!
