Last week was our Relief Society Birthday Celebration!

The Relief Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was formed 169 years ago in Nauvoo, Illinois, by the prophet Joseph Smith.

This year, we had a pioneer theme, and had pioneer inspired food, activities, and decorations.

{we had homemade soups, jams and butter with our bread)


{we decorated with quilts, burlap and wildflowers, pie plates, dutch ovens, jute, etc...think Little House on the Prarie...}


{after learning to make cornhusk dolls and clothespin dolls, learning to crochet, and playing pioneer games, everyone took home some jam}

It turned out to be a really fun night!

Looks like you were busy for a few weeks before the event! (I'm assuming all that jam was made by you using your "secret" recipe.) :)
