We dropped off our first missionary package to Elder Allred tonight. I have a feeling he's gonna get pretty spoiled, being the first missionary in the family.
Especially with 4 sisters that adore him & a mom that misses him like crazy.
Annabelle and I had so much fun baking him heart-shaped brownies with powdered sugar on top.
(Happy Valentine's Day, Elder!)
And I just know he's gonna appreciate all the girliness we smothered into that package. Like the glitzy fairy stickers all over the card Annabelle made him. At least she gave it a masculine touch and scribbled with the black crayon. :)
I'm making it a goal to write him every Sunday. He may not get weekly brownies, but he will get a letter from us (finger's crossed!!) And with coloring being Annabelle's all-time favorite pass time, he'll have a nice collection of 2 year old artwork too!
If you ask Annabelle where Uncle Christian is she responds: "On a mission!"
And it amazes me every time.
I guess all the pre-MTC festivities really sunk in.
He is on a mission, and we are so proud of him!!
