This past Saturday, our church had the Children's Christmas Tea. It was awesome, just like last year. They have crafts on the tables for the kids, games for everyone to participate in, the Children's Choir sang a couple of songs, we all sang a couple of Christmas worship songs, watched a puppet show, had a message from our Pastor about the true meaning of this holiday, and of course, food! It's such a great time for everyone, and it's all done in two hours!
Here was the centerpiece on all the tables. We won ours! Isn't it cute?
A sample of the finger foods. And no, I did not eat those three scones! My friend didn't want hers and put them on my plate. They were so good! It's so funny because my kids are not sandwich eaters. They kept asking if I could take them to McDonald's afterward.
I stole this picture from my friends Facebook. These are the kids getting ready for the puppet show. Our Children's Ministry leaders go above and beyond. They are such a huge blessing to us!
I really wanted to take a picture of all of them smiling. Miranda is being sarcastic here because I told her to smile, and she just raised her eyebrows. My boys kept asking when they could take their sweaters off. I told them they could after I was done taking all the pictures I needed. Aren't they cute? I got them at The Children's Place. Oh, and if you noticed, my oldest son is not in the picture. Can I just say, "Drama?" Well, he was taking FOREVER AND A DAY just to get ready, so I just left him at home. No worries, he's old enough to stay home by himself.
Here they are with their buddies.
Working on some crafts.
Yay, there's a smile! Such a "tween!"
