Well, I promised I would share the news when Hayley opened her mission call. Watch this video below to see it happen.
(If the video didn't load you can watch it on youtube HERE.)
You probably heard her say in the video that her grandpa (my dad) served there also. We are all SO excited! Especially Hayley!
We had a fun night. We were all very surprised and touched by how many people came to share this occasion with us. What a blessing to have these wonderful family members and friends in our home.
We had a couple of maps hung on the entertainment center. Everyone got to make two guesses as to where they thought Hayley would be called to serve. One in the States and one outside the US.
We had a basket full of Hayley's favorite things that we gave to the person who guessed right. It has a tag that reads, "Where in the world" We also had a bag of gummy bears for the second and third place winners that read, "Bearly missed it". Kade guessed Russia and he thought that he had "Bearly missed it", so in all the chaos right after Hayley opened and read her call, Kade walked over to the mantel and took one of the gummie bear bags and started eating it. When I asked him why he had taken it he said, "I guessed Russia. I barely missed it!" Oh well!
I included printable copies of the tags and page toppers HERE and HERE if you are interested. If you use the page toppers carefully cut around the top of the bears head and the fold it in half. Also, HERE is a copy of instructions we hung on the wall by the table where everyone was writing down their guesses on sticky notes.
Come back soon,
