WaRd PaRtY!

Speen and I are the activity chairs of our ward and through a fall party last night which turned out to be a huge success. This family in our ward brought probably 1,000 gords and pumpkins and at least 60 bundled bunches of cornstalks for decorations. It turned out so cute. We had a little carnival for the kids, chili/cornbread meal, family photo booth and country line and swing dancing. I know this will come as a shock but I only took a few pictures.

Here is our little fam at the photo booth.

I had my 'big sister' from my sorority come and teach swing and line dancing lessons. She did an amazing job and it was fun to hang out with her, it had been too long

2 things I learned during the night:

1. Wow, I am so out of shape. I was dying during the line dances! I seriously need to get back into shape, pronto!
2. I am dreading our next activity, just because I was so exhausted after this one, and we have our adult Christmas party in less than 4 weeks. To go through all the work again sounds exhausting, but at least we have a great committee!

After the party, we got the kiddos ready for bed. When I had Tallie, I had a few people give some of their old baby clothes. I have no idea where I got this sleeper for Tallie, but how fun that it is the SAME ONE I already had for Lance.

Is this not the cutest thing ever - my two little matchies!

What little cuties! What an amazing ward party! You guys rock!

What cute matching babies you have! The party sounds like a lot of fun. I bet you're exhausted, that is a huge undertaking with a tiny babe. Good luck with the Christmas party! It was so fun to talk to you the other day!

So that ward Christmas party that you are in charge of, my mother-in-law did many times. And boy oh boy they did so much! You should ask her for ideas, if you need any.
Look at your darling family! Love the pictures!
And your two are almost twins! They look so much alike!

CUTE PARTY!!!! Lance and Tallie just keep looking more and more alike, don't they! How fun that you called your big sis from ChiO! Do you stay in touch with her or did you just think of her out of the blue? That is such a great idea!

That party does look like a success! I love the matching jambones.

Jenny said...

Yowzers! Just looking at all that work makes me exhausted. You're too much! Your kiddies are so adorable:)

Love the matching jammies! How is sweet little Lance doing these days? I miss you! Hopefully I will have a cell phone in the next week. Have you baked your bread? Thanks again for the soup and peaches. You are a great friend. When are you going to join the BB? You better get going on your pretzels because there is some serious bartering going on right now! ;) Oh yeah, I totally just scored at Old Navy. All the clearance stuff is an additional 50% off FYI.

I forgot to tell you that the party looks like a total success!
