I logged on to lds.org as soon as I got home from work yesterday to watch the news conference from the Church Office Building in Salt Lake City.
It was very exciting to share the experience of witnessing the announcement of the new Prophet for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for the first time with Emme, Clee, and Andrew.  
Emme's reaction to the announcement was "Oh I know him!" referring to President Monson. It was very cute.
President Thomas S. Monson succeeds our dear President Gordon B. Hinckley, who passed away on January 27. 
President Monson was called to be the sixteenth President of our Church with President Henry B. Eyring as first counselor, and President Dieter F. Uchtdorf as second counselor. 
I am very excited about our new leaders, and I am anxious to see the marvelous work they will do for our church!
