Eight is Great

Yesterday was Becca's big day--although I find it a little hard to believe my little girl is old enough to be baptized!
Becca was very involved with the planning of the festivities. Instead of having the usual "Great to be Eight" theme for the baptism preview, the Primary Presidency had a "Black-White Choose the Right" theme, and Becca thought that it would only be fitting to incorporate the theme into her baptism party. So, my kind sisters-in-law brought various black and white cookies, we decorated the house with all things black and white and had French Dip Sandwiches for dinner.
I had planned on taking pictures during the party but totally forgot, so the only pictures I have are from before everyone came...Greg has some pictures of Becca on his phone & his dad took some of her up at the Stake Center, but here are a couple from before we went up to the church.

Black and white in the kitchen (I added more daisies just before we left to the church and filled the little bowls with black and white jelly beans and chocolate covered/yogurt covered raisins and pretzels)

Heather, everything looks amazing! I hope Becca had a nice day. I'm sure that all your hard work made it feel special for her.

Congratulations Becca! We love you! (And Heather, the decorations/party theme are, as always, adorable).
