Sunday after going to the funeral home and to a baby shower, we had a Christmas party for the four-year old and kindergarten Bible classes. We had several sweet children who came - Carter, Cade, Sofie, Sophie, Jacob, Gary, Josh, Joey, Lawson, Tucker, Alex, and Clint. We started our party by decorating Merry Christmas cards with crayons and stickers. Then I read a couple of Christmas books to get us in the holiday mood while Sandy and Becky sat out the snack for the day, Oreos, chips, and juice. We also played a quick game of 4-Corners, one of the children's favorite games. Then it was time for centers: we made reindeer food & snowman soup with Becky; did a Santa puzzle & made a pattern necklace with red, white, and green beads with me; and decorated a Christmas tree with sequins along with a Santa Claus beard countdown with Sandy. We covered cans with holiday wrap for the children to keep their goodies in. The end of the party was the highlight of the entire party though - we took the children upstairs to give their cards and Snowman Soup to some of the older members of the congregation. Mrs. Holly even made our picture for the newspaper. We had a wonderful time and even made plans to expand our activities next year. It's so wonderful to have such precious children to work with along with two ladies who are very special to me.
