Christmas Party, Cookies & Caroling

This last Saturday was our Ward Christmas Party. The Young Women and Young Men were asked to wear a green, red or white shirt and they were provided with cute little elf hats to wear. They were going to be Santa's helpers, but he ended up not needing help, afterall.
Last night Sam's friend, Kasey, came over to hang out with Sam. They went to grade school together, but they go to different junior highs and they haven't seen each other in several months. They had a really good time making Russian Tea cookies (better known as "snowballs" around our house). As you can see, they had a GREAT time with the powdered sugar. I think they got more on themselves than the cookies!

Tonight we met up with some friends of ours and went caroling around their neighborhood. The girls have never been caroling and it's been years and years since I've gone. It was so much fun to walk around singing Christmas carols and visiting with each other. Afterward, we all went back to our friends house for cookies and hot choco. What an amazing way to get more into the Christmas Spirit!
