What Happened? 2014....GONE!!!!

Here we are, ready to ring in a New Year!!!  I can't believe how quickly a year passes by.  We have had many things happen in our Relief Society this past year.  We have welcomed new Sisters and said goodbye to others.  We have played, learned and socialized together.  We have grieved with each of our Sisters who have lost their loved ones, and celebrated the arrival of new babies.  All and all, I have to say, it was quite an eventful year.  I am excited to welcome a new year and new adventures.  We are starting off the new year with a "BANG"!   I'm excited to learn from Sylvia Olsen, again (for me), on what to do with our wheat.  I don't care how many times I attend these classes, I just don't retain all of the information.  It never hurts to hear it again, and remember that wheat if for more than bread.   I hope to see you there!!!  Love you!!!!

Annual Christmas Party

We certainly had a fun Christmas Party!!!  I have recovered after a long (17 hour) winters nap!  I do love a good party.  I hope everyone had a great time.  Thank you to all that help to make this such a success.  It was so fun to hear the Elder's Quorum in the kitchen peeling potatoes, laughing and talking.  Thanks to the Missionary Committee for delivering the invitations.  Thank you goes out to the High Priest Group for be excellent Greeters at the doors.  The Young Women were excellent hostesses sharing appetizers to those who were visiting with each other, and bringing you a yummy dessert.  The handsome Young Men were excellent waiters, I was worried we wouldn't have many, my mistake!  There were so many Young Men, I was overwhelmed.  Thanks to all my little friends, the Primary!!!  I enjoy children so much, and crawling around the stage with them was the highlight to my evening.  Thanks to all the Sister's who brought appetizers, to make our event special from the minute the guests entered the doors.  They were yummy!!!  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to Kaelyn, Dan, Erica, Dan and my special friends Verla and Ron for the fantastic meal.  Most of all thank you to my Sweet Aaron, for putting up with the garage full of party supplies for the past 6 months, and the having to haul truck loads to the Church!!!  It certainly takes a little effort from everyone to make a successful party!
I hope you are ready to come to my house on Wednesday Evening at 7 pm, for more fun for the Relief Society Sisters.  I love you so much, and love to do for you.  Please come relax and visit and be our guest!!  Love, Connee

Getting Ready for the Party.

I am still needing two or three volunteers to help setup for the Christmas Party on Wednesday night.  I have planted the seeds, watered the plants, harvested the wheat, now who wants to help set up for the Party.  Please contact me if you can help.  I need two men, to lift tables and chairs.  The party is going to be guaranteed fun!!!  Love you, Connee
