We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Ward Christmas Party

The ward did a City of Bethlehem Christmas party, and I made the signs for all of the booths. They were sadly picked up when the event was over and I haven't seen them since. Here's hoping they turn up next Christmas. Anyhow, it took a long time to make em all, and at least there are some pics from the event. Jared got roped into being a shepherd for the narration that was done flash-mob-style during the event and I got roped into singing last minute with some ladies as part of the whole Christmas story. The children loved the storytelling by Brother Preece: all the coolest Old Testament stories- told using modern toys and dolls. Even Barbie. Lol. Lukas likes dressing up and was so proud to stand next to Papi to be a little shepherd with him. It was fun to eat on the floor, and seemed to have a less entitled feel than most ward dinners where Santa comes and we just get together, eat food, then leave. I like it when activities smack of church and not just a party that could easily be duplicated at school or work. Was fun and I was grateful that so many people helped out!
