after lots of emails back in october, we had our group of 24 and were ready to go! we spent lots of time making ornaments-everyone made 24 of one ornament that went with a specific day of the devotional. definitely took some effort but we now have a set of 24 unique ornaments that go along with the neat devotional...all to teach our kiddos about Jesus and the true meaning of Christmas. i am so, so, so excited about this new tradition for our family!
so last night was our ornament exchange party. everyone brought their ornament creations and we set them all out. wow! for a group of so many girls that claimed to "not be very crafty," we have some super cute ornaments to use year after year! we had lots of yummy food, fun, and fellowship!
bags ready for everyone to fill with their set of ornaments
because they were all so cute, i had to take a picture of them to show them off.
