So the Ward Christmas Dinner was our last hurrah. There were a lot of potatoes. Specifically, there were 300 potatoes.
Oriental Trading Company played an important part. They always do, don't they? Oriental traders are good people.
I spent months making the ward slideshow. Some of that time was spent stealing pictures off of people's Facebook pages in my ward. I don't expect you to watch the whole thing, but if you do you'll notice there's no music for the second half. (The 2nd song is God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman by The Bare Naked Ladies). Thank goodness it worked at the party--no small task considering I did sound, computer, projector, microphone, and extension cords all by myself because Christian was out of town. I'm surprised I wasn't translated when it all started playing correctly! I have to say I was underwhelmed with my ward's response to the slideshow. I mean, I knew it wouldn't change anyone's life but actually that is exactly what I thought it would do. Then again, perhaps my ward was underwhelmed by the creepiness of me stealing their personal photos off of Facebook. Who can say?
And with that, the Activities Committee was gone.
