It's official.  My daughter is now an acolyte for our Methodist church.  She was an acolyte for her first service this morning.  She did a great job!  I was teasing her about lighting the back drape on fire.  (No, she didn't!)  She was a little nervous.  Hubs and I even did a simultaneous (accidentally) big eye wink at her.  She was in front of the entire church and had to keep from laughing.  We did it one more time just to be hams.  ;)  My in-law's came and really enjoyed the service.  K was glad to have them there and so were we.

I was the acolyte at our church when I was growing up. If you were in the choir, you got to light the candles. My first time I freaked out--you could see the flame shake with me and my nerves. Ha!

Then, there was the time I couldn't retract the wick and had a quick panic before simply blowing the thing out.

Ah, good memories I hadn't thought of in years. :o) Thanks for that! :o)

K did the lick and pinch to make sure it was out. When she blew on it, it was blowing tiny embers and it was freaking her out.

As a germaphobe all I could thing was SHE LICKED HER FINGERS! Never mind her worries of burning the church down! :S
