RS Christmas Party

The Relief Society Christmas party was such a special event. So many of the sisters where there and it was such a joy to be together. Sis. Brantley opened her home to all and it looked so beautiful. It was amazing how many of us could attend and have a place to sit. Nikki, Carolyn, Stephanie, Azrkca, Judy, Janalee, and Sara ate together in this little private room off the main floor. Many sisters gathered in the dining room.

Lauri, Erica, Lisa, Leti, Erin, and Gayle graced the kitchen table surrounded by many reminders of Christmas.

Linda, Pricilla, Carrie, Emily, and Kathryn were the staff that kept things running. Linda provided us with Christmas aprons as we served dinner.

The Laurels were invited. It was fun to have these cute girls with us. Amanda, Kirsten, and Jun-yi.

The group gathered in to hear 3 Krogh's and a Shell sing, Christmas thoughts by Lindsay and Erin, some carolling, remarks by our president and a presentation of our ornaments by Emily. Thanks to Gayle and Janalee for filling in with the music.

The family singers were such a treat to have at our party.

The house looked beautiful. Thank you to all that came to help decorate.

Judy was kind enough to try and get a picture of all the ladies in attendance. We might have missed just a few, but we got most of us.

Ali brought her sister from out of town and her cute little daughter.

Karie brought her neighbor.

Also, thank you to all who brought desserts. They were delicious!!!!

Christmas Craft

For those of you who didn't see our Christmas craft we did this year, here it is. We first spray painted the frames and sanded them if you wanted the weathered look. We used Ali's vinyl on the glass of the frame and tied ribbon around the bottom or attached it on the top tied with a bow so that it could be hung. I think they turned out beautiful. We sure appreciate Ali's craftiness and making it so easy for the rest of us.

Cooking with Leti

Leti was so gracious to open up her home to all of us and show us her wonderful cooking skills. She cooked 3 recipes using beans, cheese quesedillas, a rice pudding, a special green salsa, and more. We ate and ate and ate and loved every minute of it.

Mango and Guava juice is delicious.

Leti's friend, Ingrid was there too. We enjoyed getting to know her.

I am going to eat all that rice pudding myself! I love it!
Thank you Leti, for a wonderful time.

Fall Colors Hike

It was a beautiful day for a stroll on the Silver Comet Trail. I think we missed the fullest and most colorful trees, but it was still pretty. The kids were faster than the adults on their bikes and scooters. It was nice to get together.
