The theme for this year's program was 'Home For Christmas'. We each received this book filled with delicious recipes & helpful suggestions for making the holiday season joyful & stress free.
I had such a great time talking & laughing with Kim, Kari's sister, Kari, & Carol, Kari's Mom. Her mom & I have the same name, Carol Ann!
The program began at 7:00 in the sanctuary. Here you see the program agenda & the corresponding pages for info. PJ's on Parade was a pajama fashion show featuring the cutest kids. Next the pastor's wife showed 3 different ideas for decorating your front door. A doctor then talked about how to stay healthy with your eating & stress management during the holidays. The next presenters were so entertaining while they showed stocking stuffer ideas. Finally we were treated to a few recipe ideas for Christmas morning.
Everyone received some great gifts. A coupon for 20% off PJ's at the children's shop that furnished items for the fashion show, warm & cozy socks, the December issue of Better Homes & Gardens magazine, and . . .
Yesterday I monogrammed Ethan's stocking. I had to take off the white furry cuff to do the monogram & then reattach. I also took off the loop & added a blue ribbon loop.
I'm very proud of the way it turned out. Now I need to monogram the big people stockings. I bought the four of us new stockings year before last ,but never got around to personalizing. I won't be tackling that project today because Bobby & Kari are going shopping with me. I'm hoping to get some things checked off my gift list.
