Homecoming Dance

We had three of our Young Women who went to the homecoming dance this past Saturday night.  They looked so cute in their dresses, so I took pictures of them on Sunday.  Here are the cute Young Women on Sunday morning.

Coming up with the Truths and a Lie.

Lots of reading to come with good questions.

The Smart's all ended up on the same team.

We made all the girls pillow cases with the them of the retreat.  Then we all signed them.  This was a fun idea, that we will continue to do.

It took a while to sign everyone pillowcases.

More signing of the pillow cases.

Friday-Saturday, September 18-19, 2009
We held our 1st Annual 13th Ward YW Ophir Retreat.  We met at the chruch and then carpooled to Ophir.  When we arrived we had a yummy dinner of homemade soup in bread bowls, salads and cobbler for desert.  We had a great time playing games that Alison organized.  1st we split up into teams and played two truths and a lie about stories in the Book of Mormon.  Then we played a game where Alison put a name of a Book of Mormon character on your back and you had to ask yes and no questions to figure out who you were.  Next we played pictonary with Book of Mormon people, places or things.  This was my favorite game and we had a lot of fun drawing the pictures and trying to guess them first.    After playing the games Alison handed out bags of fun things in them to help them study the Bookf of Mormon.  Also in the bag she had pillow cases with the Ophir Retreat Theme on them and and we signed everyones pillowcases.  This we as hit!   Finally we ended the night by watching a couple of DVD sceens on how to use the Book of Mormon more effectively and then had a short reading time before we all went to bed.  The girls were tired and all went to bed in the bunk house and the leaders stayed up until 1AM talking and have a great time together.  In the moring we woke up and had breakfast of bagels, yogurt and fruit and then went home.  We had a great time and we look forward to next years retreat!
