Christmas Dinner

We had our Relief Society Christmas dinner this past week.  They asked for volunteers to bring decorations and place settings for a round table.  It seemed like a fun idea, so I signed up.  I ended up making my gingerbread house to use as the center piece.  I decided to go with a nativity instead of a traditional house.  I think it turned out great!  The church gym is a terrible place to get a good picture though.

Here was my table all decorated!  It was simple but cute.

So cute!


I totally saw a 20/20 or something like that recently about people who make money doing youtube videos and blogging. I kept meaning to tell you to check it out because it sounded like something that you would do great at. Looks like you found it on your own. Good luck with your new blog! I miss you!
