The Christmas season can be SO hectic...especially with school aged children I'm finding out! Last week, we had the school Christmas program on Tuesday (Maybe I can upload the video if it's not too long...it was absolutely hilarious); practice Wednesday for the Church program; Parent's night out Friday night (awesome to get a little date night and some shopping done); Saturday morning was Breakfast in Bethlehem at our Church; And Sunday...it was Papa's Birthday, Thomas was ordained a Deacon of our Church, and the Children's Christmas program and dinner were Sunday night!
Breakfast in Bethlehem is always fun, even though I've heard it called "Breakfast in Chaos!" We ate a delicious breakfast, followed by our Pastor's reading of the real Christmas Story. That's just the calm before the storm...next the children got to do a few Christmas crafts. Yikes! I must say, we were a little smarter this year and used glue dots instead of trying the 'ole Elmer's again! They also set up the manger scene, where you can dress up as the wise men, or the angel, or Mary and Joseph...we even had a sit-in Baby Jesus this year. Here are a few pictures from the day:
