Christmas Party

December 4:
Sylwia, Emily, and Jackie went to help Sylwia's teacher Sr. Carolyn at a Christmas party for poor and homeless people. We brought costumes, equipment, and everything we needed to take their pictures with Baby Jesus. Sylwia also did face-painting for the children. Both children and adults enjoyed getting dressed up as Mary, Joseph, shepherds, and angels and having their picture taken. One couple told us that they hadn't had their picture taken together in thirty years. It was wonderful to help them celebrate Christmas in this way, and beautiful and inspiring to see how much they enjoyed it. And, it was good practice for our Baby Jesus Party next Saturday!
P.S. How are you preparing for Christmas?
