O Antiphons and Santas
Tonight was our annual Life Teen Christmas party. This year I put the mini's in charge of planning. They turned it into a real Life Night, not just a dance.
I was a little concerned that they got rid of all the table and chairs. But, it worked.
In the past 3 years, we've had about 70% of the teens just sit at the tables and not really participate. But, this year, they all pretty much participated except maybe a handful.
The teens planned a Battle of the Santas with a cookie eating contest, obstacle course and wrapping presents relay.
Then, our annual Snowball Fight inside.
Followed by Christmas Stations - Pictures with Santa (See photo above), Making Ornaments, Face Painting, and Dancing.
To close up the night, they brought the Santas back out and were about to award a Santa 'winner' when Jesus appeared and told them about the true meaning of Christmas, and we had birthday cake(s).
O Antiphons and the Eucharist and the Holy Spirit uniting me with the Trinity are what I'm excited about.
That, and sewing numbers on my clothing and handkerchiefs and socks.
