Kids Christmas Shopping

...the kids are out of school for Christmas break...

...and our LYO and the Sunday School children went on their annual shopping spree...

...and bought lots of presents for needy children in our area...

...we brought everything back to the Church and wrapped it up...

...this is so much fun...

...we have adult helpers on hand...but usually the kids want to do the wrapping themselves...

...like the presents they've picked (each one perfect for the recipient)...the wrapping is perfect too...

...we even had one little girl who was sick...she had come to Church and was so sad that she was too sick to be able to go shopping...she was crying as she left...so I asked her what she would buy for a little girl and told her we would be sure to get just what she said for a little girl on our list...her choices...a baby blue top and some Twighlight Mist perfume...so of course we found just those things...and wrapped them up for her...

...they carried all the presents into the Sanctuary and placed them around the Chrismon tree...

...lovely...
