New Beginnings - La Habra Ward

As of February I am now the Beehive Advisor. We had about 3 weeks to put together NB's and it ended up being a great night. Our theme was "Be Thou An Example" from 1 Timothy 4:12 which also happens to be the youth theme for the year. We had the girls pick a women in their life that has been an example to them and then make a paper doll that would represent them. Then at NB's they would hold their paper dolls and tell us about that person etc. The girls did a great job. We had a talk from our new YW's President Sister Manderino who spoke on the theme as well as personal progress. Then the girls did their paper doll presentation as well as a musical number. Our last speaker was my sister in law Ursula who did a great job talking on the new value virtue then of course our bishop did the closing remarks. For refreshments we did choc. covered strawberries and the girls decorated sugar cookies. My friend Jennifer had a very cute cookie cutter that looked like a girl with the hair flipped out. So cute!! Again the girls did a great job decorating the cookies. Below are some pictures of that night. I wish I had taken pictures of everything before the program started because by the time I tried taking pictures the board was destroyed and the cookies and strawberries were already gone. Live and learn.

This was one of our handouts that we gave to each of the girls. With the help of my sister Melinda we came up with this design and made about 24 of them. It looks simple to make but it took a lot of time. Once I figured everything out and got the supplies needed my mom and sister Melinda help me put them together. It took about 2 hours.
These are sisters who picked each other as their example....cute!

These girls picked their moms as their example. We have such cute girls in our ward and they are so good! You can see the board in the back but of course it was destroyed before I could get a good pic. The board had the paper dolls on it with the values surrounding them. Karen Chitwood who is the Laurel Advisor was smart and brought magnets to attach to the back of the paper dolls and we also used the magnets to attach the the lettering. So smart! It worked out great. The girls would come up one by one and take off their paper doll from the board talk about it and then put it back on the board.
