We had a wonderful Christmas party for the Relief Society sisters. Lina Talataina came up with such a nice program. We started the evening off getting to know each other by sitting next to someone we didn't know very well and had some ice breaker questions to ask. We then had a wonderful dinner of ham and good fixings. Aferwards we heard the song "Silent Night" sung in Samoan, Tongan, Spanish and everyone sang together in English. We then had our White Elephant gift exchange. This year we wrapped up gifts of service. Some sisters received baked goods, homemade blankets and aprons, a lunch or movie date, and babysitting. No one left empty handed. After the game we ended the evening with dessert brought by those who were kind enough to bring it to the party.
