Christmas Parties

We somehow figured out a way to pack December with Christmas parties. I basically over dosed on Shirley Temples and I have no regrets.

First up: the Williston 1st Ward Christmas party. So many cool paper snowflakes were hanging from the ceiling.

They had a bunch of nativities set up in the Relief Society room. After planning the Halloween party, it was quite a relief to have nothing to do with the Christmas party.

Sam was an innkeeper in the skit.

The primary kids sang "Stars Were Gleaming."

I brought homemade ice cream and it was gone so fast.

Olivia threw a cookie exchange party again this year. I want to kiss this party's face. So much fun!

The next party was the SLB party for the PPS segment. This is the division Sam works in so it was mostly people he knew.

There were a ton of really nice prices worth a total of $20,000. Sam's was one of the first tickets drawn and they were still doing the little prizes so he won a duffel bag. We returned it to the store for the money.

Myrna, the Primary President, had a Christmas party at her house for all of the Primary workers. We were not able to stay for long because we were party hopping that night but it was fun while we were there. There was a lot of good food and I ate way too much considering that the next party had a big dinner as well.

The next party was for SLB Wireline. We are moving in one week so it felt like a farewell to Sam.

We left the party around 10pm but we had a babysitter until after midnight so we walked down the road to the movie theater to see Mockingjay, Part I.

There was one more Christmas party in Minot on the day we were moving and we considered going but it would have added to our drive out of town so we opted out of it. I feel like we definitely got our fill of parties this year.
