First Talk in Primary!

Anna got to give her very first talk in Primary at church 2 weeks ago. A quite considerable milestone when contrasted with the Primary Program last fall where she snuggled into her teacher's lap and hid her face from everyone. We decided to take advantage of the Easter season while preparing her little talk. She loved opening all of the little eggs and showing her little items in them. Anna did a great job, nerves and all, and said every word at the microphone, despite waiting for the requisite "Mommy Prompts" on each line. Oh well, I'll take it!

Proud mother that I am, I made her give her talk again sans the unneeded "Mommy Prompts" (possibly 3 or 4 times until we got the video acceptable...) at home for the camera and posterity's sake. Here is her sweet little Easter testimony.

"At Easter time you see pretty flowers.
At Easter time you fill your Easter baskets.
At Easter time you eat yummy candy.
At Easter time you paint Easter eggs.
At Easter time you think about Jesus and the empty tomb.
He was resurrected. I know He died for us.
I know He lives and loves us.
In the name of Jesus Christ, amen."

So cute! In our ward we do Talk, Article of Faith, and Testimony. Jordyn had Testimony a few weeks ago for her first time and I was the proud Mama grinning from ear to ear in the back. :) It's fun to watch them do new things.
