Church Christmas Party!

Last Saturday was our ward Christmas party! I always like attending church parties because I don't have to cook a whole dinner and it is fun to watch Cadence be a "big girl." She is so social and knows everyone by name! I love that about her!!! This year we dressed Cadence in a Christmas dress (She says she looks like a present - especially with the bows in her hair) and Cooper in the Santa outfit he wore for Halloween (that won him $30). He has grown so much that I can't get all the buttons to close!!! Oh well, he still looked cute! We ate bbq pork, funeral potatoes, salad and dessert! Cadence loved the pork!!! I fixed my yummy peppermint poke cake! It was a hit! Instead of topping it with peppermint patties, I crushed peppermint candy cane and sprinkled it on top! Cadence just ate the frosting and left the cake part for me. Super fabulous!!!

The activities committee prepared a slide show of all the activities for the year and we exchanged names to do a service for a different family in the ward. The primary sang a few songs. I sent Cadence up with older kids. She didn't know the songs, but figured out part of the chorus of two songs by the end. She is so smart!!! We love our Christmas kids (even with frosting on her face). We love Christmas parties!!!
