Sacred Grove Rolling Pin

My Grandparents returned from their mission in Palmyra, NY about a month ago. They were in charge of tending the grounds of the Sacred Grove, where Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith as a 14 year old boy.

There was a tree in the Sacred Grove that they were considering chopping down. The decision was made to not cut it down. The day that decision was made, that very tree was struck by lightening.
Decision made for them!
My Grandpa decided to make out of that tree, rolling pins for each of his daughters, and granddaughters for Christmas. (He also got some wood from the Hill Cumorah, but my specific rolling pin is from the Sacred Grove)
They are beautiful.

Grandma said we have to make pies with it :)
I've never made a dessert pie before (because I don't like them very much)
But I made chicken pot pie!!!

Its in the oven right now and I'm hungry!!!

Don't I look cute in that picture? Yes, I put a bra on just for that.

You're welcome.

Edited to Add: My table has a lot of flaws, but its clean. Promise. I bleached the tabletop, then rinsed with water thoroughly. Just in case it looks grody to you.
