Fun with the Family (Church Family That Is)

In the middle of December we had a church ward's annual Christmas party.This one was really cute and the kids were perfect angles the whole night, in spite of the fact they were by themselves for a while while we set up food and tables. at the beginning of the party we took cute family pics which I LOVE in-spite of the fact Sophie missed the smile memo (at least her hair is super cute) .
Towards the end of the evening all the kids gathered and sang us Christmas Songs they had been working on; I  loved it wished & my camera took better pics so you could find the 3 older kids are up there.
Sophie had fun on daddy's lap while the older kids were up singing.
Right before we left the kids got a chance to see Santa and give any last minute wishes, they pretty much stayed the same Josh wanted a digger, Cami- an Eve robot, Sophie- a digger, & Phoebe- a huge-o stuffed dog from Costco.
This was a really great evening with our new neighbors and I am super excited to have many more of these ward parties to attend in years to come!

A couple days earlier December in our church ward  had our Young Womens (similar to a girl version of scouts)had their annual Women in  Excellence Evening, where we display all the cool things that the young women had been work on all year long. We made the theme of "Look What we Cooked Up" so had spent many hours having most of the young women (ages 12-18) make fun aprons to go with the theme This taught them how to read and follow a pattern and sew. I made REALLY cute wooden spatulas in each of the 8 value theme colors of the Young Women Program. For food we had fruit piazzas making sure to have a fruit that matched all 8 of the young women value colors. 
This turned out to be a really cute fun program for the young women and families in our area.
