Each year our ladies' group at church has the 'funnest' Christmas party. We decorate individual tables, we bring ornaments to exchange, we eat lots of good food, we bring cookies to exchange. It was a great time together as women, sharing about how Christmas means something special to us, especially as Christians. [it got me to thinking how wonderful it is that so many millions of people celebrate Christmas- and even though many do not celebrate it for the real reason- we know why Christmas is observed- it is all because of JESUS! He is the reason- He is the reason we are alive! We are here to bring Him glory because He made us, loves us, saved us, died for us]
(last year's party)
Lydia's table- love it! So fun and whimsical!
She made all of these cute little felt and candy trees.
her display was edible...........
my table: are you surprised at the felt elements?!
I have never in my life used a white tablecloth....I kinda liked it.
And no, Alice....it is not a dunce hat..........although, if the shoe (hat) fits..........:)
