My Little Cheerleader

So, I was doing Sharing Time today in Primary about missionary work. I had a suitcase out and we were packing it with all of the things that a missionary needs to take with them when they leave; white shirts, name tags, ties, toothbrush, Preach My Gospel, scriptures etc... (I even threw in a teddy bear for a cheap laugh.)


When I pulled out my scriptures I explained, "This was my first set of scriptures. I've had them for a long time. My parents gave them to me on the day I was baptized."

Jordyn's reaction was classic... no hand... volume WAY up...

"You did, Mama? Wow! You really did get baptized? Good job, Mama!! That's so great! Whoo-hoo!"

Yes, I did. Here's the evidence.

Dad and I just before the baptism. This is one of two photos I have of my Grandpa Davis. I love that he is giving bunny ears to my mother. ♥ My father must have taken this picture since he's not in it. My mom made my baptism dress and the skirt and matching vest I wore to be confirmed in. As a matter of fact, she made Krysta's, Alison's & Jillian's too. She was crafty like that.

That must have felt good to have your daughter praise you like that! What a great picture you have of your baptism day.

Ha ha! Kids are so funny and sweet. Your object lesson sounds wonderful. I love that you brought a teddy bear for the missionary.

That's so cute! I love the picture, too, with all of the old clothes and big hair. I'm so glad styles have changed! P.S. I found Devenie's blog. There's a link to in on my blog. Have a good day!
