Me Helping with Nativity Scenes

And so begins the holiday season at church... instead of fellowship supper on Wednesday, they had an advent festival. The kids had a BALL. Most of the activity was around making holiday crafts -- a nativity scene, banners, christmas tree cookies, angels, advent wreath etc. I volunteered to help the kids make the nativity scenes -- it was really cute.

My kids crafts at the end of the evening
Duncan & Connor made nativity scenes

Then this morning we went to church again and had breakfast with Santa! My kids got to do more crafts (Duncan was in 7th heaven!) and talk with the big man himself. The "elf" in the pictures is the christian education director at church. Connor was the very first one to jump into Santa's lap!
