Ward Christmas Party


Dave and I went to our Ward's Christmas party tonight. It was a last minute decision. We did not plan on going, Dave in particular. But we decided to support our Ward and attend, even though our friends... the few we have... were not going to be there. Sure enough we walked in and there were no "young" people to sit with. So we walked to the back and took a seat all by ourselves. On the way to the party Dave made a joke about ending up sitting with the Bishop. Well, what should happen but the Bishop asked us to join them at their table. I was glad to accept though. I felt so anti-social sitting all alone... though I know Dave was fine with it. We ended up having a fantastic conversation with the people at our table, eating great food, listening to the amazing Troubadour Choir from FVHS and I even got a slow dance in with my Husband. We left early, I promised Dave only 1 slow song. But I was so happy to have gone and had such a nice time with my Husband. He was the star of the conversation. Everyone was asking him all sorts of questions regarding literature, theory and other such things. I loved watching him be the social, conversational one... it was a lot of fun. I am so proud to be his Wife.

So sad we missed the party. Glad you guys had fun. We would have joined you guys in the very back but we're stuck at home. Such a good photo of you two love birds.

I told Vanessa that you'd convinced David to go and you wanted to know the dress code. Vanessa asked if I told you if it was "Prom dress"? Too bad you didn't get that memo. That would have added a little excitement to your evening.

Ha ha Ok I totally goofed on my post so i deleted...sorry for the blemish in the comments! Anyway, I am so jealous you got to go. I have always wanted to but Steve's schedule is so undesirable for nights like this! He's working in the rain as we speak and Brady has a minor ear infection....those two combined are the reason for my absence. SO glad you had fun though! Maybe I'll get to go next year....

Wow, look at you two. I love the picture. I'm so glad you gave it one dance. Maybe you could say it was for us since we missed this event. We haven't missed very many of those in the 30 years in the ward. Love, Mom
