Christmas PAR-TAY!!!

Here are a couple pictures from the Youth Christmas Party.  As you can see, I was Santa! The youth really loved seeing me as Santa and joking around.  At the end of the night one of the girls told Heather, "I knew it was really Joshua."  It was a great night with lots of fun. 
We watched The Charlie Brown Christmas, sang a lot of songs, played some games, ate great food, and gave gifts. We also ate the deserts the D Groups made, and they were really proud of the fact they made the sweets for everyone. 
Right now, we just finished Christmas deliveries and are having the Christmas Service this Sunday (the 23rd).  We were going to have it on the 16th, but there was too much snow. 
Merry Christmas!

Christmas Cookies

Last week, we got ready for the Christmas party by making cookies and fudge.  Chuck's guys decorated the tree and downstairs while Heather, Beth, and Veronica decorated and made cookies. It was fun making treats together but our fudge didn't work out :( I think I gave the wrong directions and now the fudge is soupy.  It was a fun night and the cookies tasted wonderful! Here are some pictures:

We don't have the skills to make these.  Veronica and her girls made these.
