REBECCA'S BRIDAL SHOWER

On January 4 we gathered at Aunt Karen's house for Rebecca's Bridal Shower. Aunt Karen had to go to Utah for a funeral, but she opened her home for us to use for the party.
We had lots of treats.
and the gift table filled up quickly
We played some games
One involved Sandra reading questions she had asked Ben, and Rebecca had to guess if he answered it right. When she was wrong, she had to chew another piece of gum.
Rebecca got a lot of nice gifts
The aftermath
Some of the gifts Rebecca got
After the shower ended we visited and snacked some more.

CONGRATULATIONS REBECCA!
AND
THANKS TO AUNT KAREN FOR OPENING HER HOME IN HER ABSENCE!

NURSERY GRADUATION

December 30 was Nursery Graduation. We only had 4 of the 8 graduates on that day. They sure were excited to move onto bigger and better things.
The other significant part of this day was that it was also my last day in the Nursery, a sad day for me.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE TOLLESON WARD'S NEWEST SUNBEAMS!!

FAMILY CHRISTMAS PARTY PART 2


After Santa visited with all of  children and they had checked out what he brought them, the family gift boxes came out.
I took my gifts home to unwrap on Christmas morning.
As usual everyone worked hard to be creative.
THANK-YOU TO EVERYONE FOR THE FUN GIFTS.

OUT OF ORDER



Blogger isn't allowing either of my blogs to add photos, unless I can copy and paste the image. Hopefully it will be fixed quickly and I can finish blogging about the events of the past couple of weeks.
