Our Mission in Ethiopia

Saturday, January 3, 2015

We had a nice time with our Debre Zeyit Branch at our branch Christmas party this afternoon.  We watched some of the Christmas Devotional,  had a reading of the Christmas story from the scriptures, sang Christmas hymns and Dawit made some yummy pizza.  I took some Christmas goodies for dessert and also had glow necklaces and bouncy balls for the kids that Jon and Emily brought.  

Salem's niece, Bitaniya got our granddaughter's birthday
treat!  Brooke turned 9 on New Year's Day!

My Rice Krispie Christmas trees, zucchini bread and pumpkin bread,
peanut butter cookies and chocolate no-bake cookies were a hit! We also
took a decorated can filled with candy canes. They went fast!
