Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

November 18, 2009
Each year our YW &YM have an annual food drive.  We pass out flyers to members of our ward and ask for food donations to be placed on their front porches and we go and collect the food, sort it back at the church, box it up and take it to families in need in our ward.  We have a great ward and they alway give generously.  This kids have a fun time providing this service each year.  Here are a few pictures from that night.

Pie Making - Mia Maids

November 11, 2009
A couple of weeks before Thanksgiving our Mia Maid class learned how to make pies.  Everyone showed up for this activity and we were all crammed into Susie's kitchen - 10 of us making pies.  We had a great time learining how to make the crust, rolling them out, baking them and then making the pudding for most of the pies and pouring it into our crusts.  Emily and Kirsten made a couple of fancy fruit pies with double crusts that look really good.  Here are some pictures of our fun night together.
