Time to Relax!

I have been planning an Enrichment night dinner for the last 1 1/2 months. I can honestly tell you that my mind has been very preoccupied lately...Michael would totally back me up here. In fact in church on Sunday they were announcing this weeks birthdays and when they said my name I surprisingly said "Wait, what?". A lady sitting behind me asked if I had forgotten, to which I replied "I knew my birthday was coming up soon, I just didn't realize it was this week"...which was followed by a room full of laughter. I am still adjusting to this calling, which I am beginning to love!

Well...last night was the party and it went really well...Phew! Here are a few pics...maybe not blog worthy but the only pics I have.

I am beginning to feel I can actually pull things together and coordinate a party. We planned for 80 women, and I believe we had around 70. I felt it was a very successful evening! The progam was amazing...thank you Elly and Ryan Franklin for understanding my vision and creating a way to visually display it! They created "The Life of Christ" through video and slideshow accompanied by beautiful music. We had two live performances which my friend Jessie Lott had organized and they were amazing. In fact I would give a rundown of our program but it would do it no justice.

Anyways, for now I can relax...until I start planning the one in March. Which I am already pulling ideas together for! Yay!!! And let me just add that one of my newest favorite inventions of all time is electric candles...which we had nearly 50 throughout the room...amazing!

It turned out perfect, such a memorable night! We were all able to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas through the wonderful presentation/music of our loving Savior. Your hard work paid off!

It looks like you did an amazing job, Christen! I love the lights on the ceiling (not an easy task!) Enrichment is a very rewarding, but time-consuming calling!! It is a lot of fun, too. I did it when Enrichment night was every month, and I can honestly say my family didn't see me very much...I guess you can be grateful it is only quaterly now! :)
