Hailey's Mission Call!

I stalked the mail carrier all afternoon last Wednesday.  I should've just stayed by the mailbox.  When I finally tracked down the mail truck, I pulled in front of him and got out to ask if he had our mail.  Before I could say anything, he said "I just put it in your mailbox 5 minutes ago.  It's under the newspaper ads.  It's for Sister Hailey Tebbs, right?"  RIGHT!!


I called to let Hailey know her call had arrived, so she gathered a few BYU friends and drove to Bountiful from Provo arriving at 7 pm.  She also invited a few other special people and we had a few favorite treats...




 

She got Hillary and Patrick on Skype and we had to wait a couple of minutes as Hillary ran across the street (literally) from work to her apartment with a smile on her face and narration the whole time she was running.




We all gathered around the spot where Hailey had envisioned opening her call...






Reading the mission call...



Congratulatory hugs...




















 We are SO proud of Hailey and her decision to serve a mission!  She has been preparing to do this and we know she will be a FABULOUS missionary in the Tennessee Nashville Mission.
