Stand Ye In Holy Places & Be Not MOO-ved

We had such a fabulous New Beginnings this week. I am so thankful for everyone who helped make this night a success. 

I'll give you the basic details of the evening. 

This is our program that we handed out.
This was printed on one side

And this on the other. So it was a single sheet instead of the "book" form normally used. 

You can find our program outline here on another post. 

Our musical number was by one of our YW and her mom, it was beautiful. They sang a Jenni Phillips song "Stand in Holy Places"

We did a cookies and milk thing for our refreshment table. My 2nd counselor did the milk bottles which she just bought and emptied the Starbuck frappacino bottles and made cute. 

For the girls to take home I made these little milk cartons filled with M&M's 

We had some yummy cookies to eat and we added the flavor straws so that you could make your milk a different flavor. 

I printed the poster out at Costco and then added a bunch of tissue poms to cover the wall.

Love how it all turned out. 

This is where we did our skit and I don't have any pictures of that because I was too busy being a cow. But it was an adorable skit and many thanks to my talented friend who wrote it. If you would like to see it you can get a copy here.

We had the new beehives fill out a questionnaire earlier in the week with questions you normally wouldn't see, like if you could pick your own name what would it be, or what would be a super power you would want to have.  
Then we read them and had them come up so everyone could see them and to give them these little picture frames with this years theme. 

I hope this was an evening our girls will never forget,  I know I certainly won't anytime soon. : )


  1. Looks fabulous, you did a fantastic job as usual! Love to see what you are creating.

  2. Seriously, that is awesome! I miss going to your parties!

  3. Ohhhh! That is what those were for- we had no clue that those straws were for flavoring the milk. Oh, well. Ashley liked them straight out of the straw. LOL
