Okay, Amber, here are some pics of the candlelighting service. Not too many turned out too great for me either, but some are good.
Our church has a neat tradition of having a candlelighting service/kids program/holiday cookie night every year. It’s a joyous time for us to celebrate the birth of our King, see our little ones sing and dress up like the nativity, sing Christmas carols and light up the sanctuary in beatiful candlelight. It’s a highlight that we look forward to.
Tom and I this year had the privilege of leading the 5 and 6 graders in a skit. It was our version of The Family Feud and the Holiday Team (Santa and his motley crew) battled it out with the Christmas team (The Biblical Characters of the Christmas Story). Tom was the host of the show and did a great job.
Julian was a Shepard this year. He learned his lines and said them with gusto.
Julian and McKenna loved holding their candles. They kept blowing them out so they could relight them off the others lit candle.
I love this one of McKenna. She looks so sweet in her pink shepard outfit!
And of course, Julian looks “cool”!
