{New Beginnings 2012}

The purpose of New Beginnings is to welcome the girls that will be turning 12 that year into YW's.  The Beehive, Mia Maid, and Laurel class symbols are recognized.  

Also the theme for the new year is introduced.  D&C 115:5.  

"Verily I say unto you all: Arise and Shine Forth, that thy light may be a standard for the nations;"

So we ran with the Arise and Shine Forth!  We welcomed our ONLY beehive coming in 2012.....Emily H!  Welcome sweet Emily!  Cannot wait wait to have ya! 

We had a wonderful spread of breakfast goodies along with an amazing skit about rising and shining everyday! 

{My job was the likey???}

{ I love this picture of Ursula and Bronwyn!  She is our new Laurel President!  This was her first activity conducting!  She did an amazing job!  And looked like such a beautiful 16 year old!}
{A couple of beehives.  As though you could not tell!}
{Emily H. and her mama!  So proud}
{Dina's spread!!}

{Carli acting "natural"}
{Claire also "acting natural"} {?????????}
{This really is Bailey acting natural}
{Our fearless stake leaders}

I just got chocked up looking at all of your pictures. I LOVE those girls. It is hard to believe that all of the Laurels were my Beehives just a short time ago. They are such beautiful, sweet, pure girls. Love every minute of your calling. The girls are lucky to have you. Thanks for sharing these pictures.
