It's a Chick Thing

For Relief Society this month we had a "Chick Thing" activity.
The original plan was to have it before Easter, but we had scheduling issues so we made it work.
I decorated the gym in yellow, green and pink with the Chick motif.

The food table of course coordinated also.
We had Chick Pops
Yellow Chocolate Dipped Oreos
Egg Nest Cupcakes
Lemon cakes
Chicken Fingers from Raisin Canes with a variety of dipping sauces...yummy
The centerpieces were of course grass and peeps :)
Each setting had a chick napkin and chick egg filled with candy with their seating number assingment
The evening was spent playing "speed dating" and just getting to know all the cool Chicks in our ward.
It was a very fun night and everyone had a ball

Oreo Treats

A week before Mother's day, Ryan asked me if I could come up with something to hand out at church for all the mothers in the ward.
Sure, I can do problem.
I ended up doing chocolate dipped oreos. I had just enough chocolate transfer sheets to do them.
I think I ended up with 80 packages with 2 oreos each.
They turned out beautiful and I think all the mother's liked them a lot.
 They also handed out a booklet, so I bundled them all together with a cute bow and tag to complete the ensemble. 
Who knew I would have to work so hard for my own mother's day treat :)

General Conference

This month for Visiting Teaching we get to talk about our favorite talks from General Conference. There were so many wonderful ones to choose from, so I downloaded the Conference Highlights off the church website and burned them onto a CD.
Of course I had to give it a little something to "gingerize" it a bit.

I've even enjoyed listening to the exerpts from Conference. 
It's a great way to get a little spiritual dose now and then while in the car.
