Crafts. Carols. Cousins!

And a whole lot of 
Crazy Fun!!!

Grant's family came over for an evening of FUN!
We started out with a small devotion about
"the star"
and why we use that symbol at Christmas time.
Then we made star ornaments.

Glitter glue and sequins.

Painted popsicle sticks and yarn

And of course a Master Glue Gun-ner...
The sticks were glued in a star shape.

Then we wrapped the middle with yarn.
And decorated with glue glitter and sequins.
Pretty Stars!

Then we feasted on pizza and salad!
(Wal-mart's take and bake - We LOVE it!!)
And Shannon's homemade fudge!

After our bellies were full and everyone was fat and sassy
(I am always sassy)
the children played the piano/violins and we all sang Christmas hymns.

And then of course there was dancing.
Grant really "cut the rug".

And then the Grand Finale was

Fun! Fun!
