After years of attending Christmas banquets with my own youth group and loving each and every one, it was such a change and good experience to be there as a sponsor. I made SO many good memories over the years with my youth group and I only hope these youth can have the privilege of a similar experience!
The theme was "Christmas in the country" and so Randy and I called a few friends and borrowed a couple of things to make us feel legit.:) Tim McGraw's got nothin' on this guy! Definitely the most handsome cowboy in town.
Isn't his apron the best? I thought so too. And you wanna know the best part?? He said it used to have an oven mitt shaped like a gun that fit in the holster.
No party is complete without some games! Cindy started things off with an icebreaker game that got them all mixing and mingling.
There was also an Air Guitar contest, which was quite entertaining, to say the least.:)
It was such a lovely evening and it was worth all the work. Thanks again to everyone who pitched in for all that you did. It truly was a team effort! Maybe we'll just have to do it again next year.:)
In other Christmas-y news…….it's time for Fairview's 24th annual, live animal Christmas pageant!
Grab your tickets (just kidding, it's free) bring the kids, and arrive early for good seats. Performances are tonight and Friday starting at 7:00, and Sunday starting at 6:00. Refreshments are served afterwards too! So obviously you don't want to miss out on those.:) Hope to see you there!
