Cheney's Christmas Party

Tonight was Cheney's 1st Annual Christmas Party. He got to invite 12 of his friends over and we had a great time.

The girls (minus Bethany) decided that they wanted to eat inside-Terryn, Micayla, Maggie, Katie, & Riley
The boys (plus Bethany-UH OH Bill!!) ate outside-Justin, Cheney, Garrett, Karson, Cameron, & Bethany

After we ate, we went to a couple of houses on our street to Christmas Carol. The kids had never done anything like it & I think they enjoyed it!

At this house, this couple was so sweet & appreciative of the singing, they passed out chocolate chip cookies! And while we were gone, guess who arrived...

Blue Santa (aka Mr. Jerry)
Katie was so excited she jumped right into his lap!

The kids listening to Blue Santa talk to them about Jesus

Chandler joined Katie on Blue Santa's lap

Blue Santa brought each kid a beautiful chocolate snowflake

The entire group

Cheney & Blue Santa had an extended chat about being a good boy & loving Jesus!

After Blue Santa left, the kids headed outside to decorate sugar cookies. I think they had a great time making their creations!

Justin had A LOT of green icing!!

Kase even got into the decorating action

While everyone was decorating, Chandler headed off to the swings-one of her favorite places to be!!

Everyone had a great time! Maybe we will make this a yearly tradition!!!

Thanks for coming everyone!!!

Cheney, looks like you have 12 great friends. Wish I could have come to your party. Look like a lot of fun.

Merry Christmas.

I am so proud of all of the children for bringing presents to give to Blue Santa. I know he will be able to find lots of children who need toys for Christmas. Great idea, Cheney. A good tradition to continue. Will Chandler be able to also invite friends next year?
Love, MeMe

It looks like all had a great time. You must have stayed busy with all it looks like you and your friends did. Cheney, you are so fortunate to have parents who were willing to have a party for you and your friends. /when is Chandler's party?

What a wonderful idea to have a Christmas party. I bet Santa thought it was a good idea too. Looks like you had lots of fun and good food also. Now next year maybe there will be two parties because Chandler will have to have one and invite her friends. Way to go kids.
Love you,
