RS Birthday Dinner
We did it!...and it's over!! Last night we celebrated our RS Birthday dinner. We got to the church at 11:00 a.m. to decorate, finished around 2 or 3 (including running back and forth to the house). Our program started at 6:30 and we were cleaned up by 9:30. YEA!
Our theme was "Pockets Full of Love". We took the poem "Grandma's Apron", and created a skit around it. Afterwards, each sister took home an apron that we had made with the poem in the pocket.
We had 72 ladies sitting at tables and served 91 for dinner (including our Priests who served and sang, nursery young women and leaders). The musical numbers, dance, and skit were perfect. I was very pleased. Everyone stayed around talking and were very appreciative of the entire night.
We had pecan crusted chicken, gourmet rice, salad, rolls and homemade pies. Our only concern was only one batch of rolls came in. A mad dash to Smith's brought in every roll they had in the store! As far as food went, we had 3 or 4 dishes of rice not used, two batches of chicken that we didn't need, 2 1/2 pies left over and 3 bags of salad...pretty good considering we didn't know how many were coming.
Ladies want our recipes and a copy of the skit, so Sunday we will provide that. (I also give the lesson Sunday) :( :(
I didn't get good pics because I was running around, but here are a couple before and during our dinner.
