YW Christmas party

I hosted the YW Christmas party tonight.  The girls did an ornament exchange, we had hot chocolate, and played the game with candy taped in bubble wrap and rolling dice for doubles.  #arlingtonwardyoungwomen

Oh Christmas tree

I've been busy with a few projects and life so putting up my Christmas tree was on the back burner.  Until tonight.

Christmas banners

Tonight I sewed these Christmas banners for missionary friends in Italy, Oregon, Florida and Washington.

Favorite choir concert

Tonight was the 16th annual Relief Society Christmas Concert at the Longfellow Park Chapel.  It was, as always, fantastic.

To Providence

I'm always searching for cool crafts and finally got to Craftland in Providence and found some tings I liked.  It was worth the hour drive.

Wreath Making Party

It was really nice not to be in charge of anything for the Wreath Making Party tonight.  I took 3 loaves of pumpkin bread and helped with clean-up for an hour.  It was a wonderful party and is always a great beginning to the Christmas season. 


I waited 70 minutes to see an ENT today.

TBT: my first camera

The Christmas when I was 12 I got my first camera.  The first photo was of my gifts of course--puzzle, slippers, stuffed mouse, hat, hair bows and more!
