Sissy's Big Weekend....

Sissy, aka Elizabeth, had a very BIG weekend!

First, she finished up a church musical performance set in December 1941. It was awesome; here she is with her friends who were also in the play:

On Saturday, she did stats for the boys basketball team in which they traveled at least 1 and 1/2 hours away for the game.

This morning we had a very exciting time at church--Elizabeth was baptized! She shared her testimony using the illustration of adoption. Just as Bella did nothing for us to choose her, her salvation is because of God alone--because of nothing she has done. It was a beautiful, teary-eyed moment!

After babysitting for another family all afternoon, coupled with the emotion of the day, she was exhausted and got "some love" from her little sister Bella:

Elizabeth, we are so proud of you! Love, Mom
