AL'S BIG WEEK!!!!

Have you ever had a week that is all about you? Well this past week was all about our Al. She has been rehearsing for the past five months for a musical that the elementary school performed, "Alice in Wonderland Jr.". In December she tried out and got the part of a flower groupie. Her favorite thing about the flowers was that they were snotty. They got to call Alice "Crab Grass" and not let Alice into their special Girls of the Golden Afternoon Club. Well Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Al was able to show off all hers and of course all of the kids hard work. They did a wonderful job and it was lots of fun to watch. In addition to the play Al turned 8 on Thursday. So there was much celebration, presents, goodies and all of that. And just when you would think the fun was over she was able to be baptized this past Saturday. Due to the fact that all her Grandma's and Grandpa's were visiting from California for her baptism they were able to see her perform in the play. Most of our friends didn't realize we had that much family. Her baptism was a wonderful day filled with soccer, :) All of the kids had games in the morning which was fun for them to get to take their grandparents to, family, birthday cake, we finally had time to sing a birthday song to Al, and a wonderful baptism. S. and A. did the talks and Al's little friends gave the prayers and Aunt Sharonda and cousin Jill took care of the music. We appreciated everybody who was able to be their and support Al and our family. It was a wonderful, busy, week. And as Al said "All about me, when can we do that again?" Well if I know Al she will figure out someway to be back in the lime light.
