CHILDRENS CHRISTMAS TEA

We had the Children's Christmas Tea at church this afternoon. This is the second year our church did this, so I pray it will turn into a tradition! I had all of us matching with hopes that I could take a family picture that would turn into our Christmas card! Didn't happen! With two of our kids singing in the choir and my eldest son serving, we were all going in different directions! My two younger boys had on identical outfits, and they were looking so handsome! I love it when siblings match..LOL. Anyway, the kids had a blast. They got crafts at their table, goodie bags, balloons, worship, a message from our Pastor, and a play about Jesus and the three wise men.

This was before we left. Excuse Eli's big wet spot on his shirt. He got toothpaste on it so I had to scrub it off!! Oh, and I cropped my other daughter out of this one because her eyes were half closed..lol.
My daughter (in the white sweater) and some of her friends.

Miranda & Eli
We were served scones, egg salad sandwiches, PB&J sandwiches, ham & cheese sandwiches, grapes, celery sticks w/ peanut butter & raisins in them, chocolate dipped strawberries, hot cocoa, tea, coffee, and cupcakes for dessert! Yummy!My girls working on the ornament craftChildrens Choir Watching the puppet showAwesome puppet show!

your kids are just gorgeous! they looked so good in their matching outfits. Too bad you didn't get a family picture though. It's amazing how hard it is to get family photos, and we only have two kids, so I can't just imagine how hard it is for you guys!
