Mixed emotions...

I've served in my church's Young Womens program ever since Joe and I were first married. So as you can imagine...it came as a HUGE shock to me this past week when I got a call from my Bishop....extending me a NEW calling into our Primary Presidency. Yikes! I have NEVER served in any capacity in the primary organization. This means...I'll no longer be teaching my cute 12-13 year old girls each week. It now means...I'll be working with all of the kids in our ward ages 2-12! Such a big change. I guess you could say...I'm looking forward to it. Change is always good. That said though..I bawled my eyes out at the thoughts of leaving my cute little Beehives. I don't know ANY different! I have LOVED serving those girls and teaching them each week. It will definitely be an adjustment.

I wanted to make them up a little sumthin-sumthin to bring to each of their houses today.... to tell them how much I love them. Here is what I came up with:






I was going to make them up some bee shaped sugar cookies but when I ran into the Spring Oreos at Target {black and yellow!} I could not resist! IT went along PERFECTLY with my BEE theme. The buckets were purchased in the $ bins at Target.

*You could also use this same exact idea if you were just getting called AS the Beehive advisor. Could work either way:)

  3. Such a cute idea! I'm in the primary presidency here and I love it! I'm sure you're primary is MUCH larger but it's so rewarding to teach the little children.
