We had our Ward Christmas Party December 14th, and it FLIPPIN ROCKED THE HOUSE! We were planning on 80 or so, and got about 140, or so. It was awesome. Every family got to make a ginger bread house (thanks you Tanya, Carol and Jennifer for your help in making and assembling those houses, you guys rock!) The kids loved it, and everyone said it was one of the best parties in awhile.
The coolest part though happened during the 15 minutes or so I was in the kitchen. I walked back into the gymnasium to find all the tables and chairs had been put away, and the floors had been swept. What an amazing organization. The Church is like a giant ant farm. What a wonderful feeling to know that if you fall, you have a ward full of members who love you and who will catch you and lift you back up. Thanks to everyone who helped. It was a huge success!
