Welcome to the annual ward Relief Society Christmas Enrichment Dinner, where 90 ladies gather together, to feel the Spirit, revel in everything Christmas, eat a fabulous dinner, enjoy excellent entertainment, and awe over the beautiful decorating, which has all been planned and executed on a strict budget, of course.
As I attended my RS's dinner tongiht, I was sooooo glad to sit in my seat and enjoy the program. I didn't do any racing around to make sure everybody's chicken was cooked just right, and that everyone who signed up to sing actually showed up, and that the program didn't have any typos, and that those who got their toes stepped on in the process of throwing this all together still felt loved and cared for, and I certainly didn't stay until midnight cleaning it all up. All things I have done before, and all things I am grateful I didn't have to do tonight.
I got to sit back and enjoy the festivities. I decorated & did the place settings for one table (pictured below) and sang for one musical number, with a group of 5 other ladies. Simple. That I can handle.
Kudos to Rachel, Melinda, Tamzen and EVERYONE who worked their little fannies off for a job well done. It was a great night! Thank you!
Yippee for paper plates & easy clean up!
