I spent some time with my daughter and her family tonight watching videos from the past few years.
One of my favorites was from the 2008 Christmas program at the kids' day care.. Little Baz in his shepherd costume sat so still keeping watch over "God's sheep" (Or should I say... the audience , of which he was a little leary , that is?) and instead of delivering a message to the shepherds...big sister, Tara, as an angel, looked more like she needed to betold...fear not!
This simple re-enactment by the little ones was a sweet reminder of the reason for the season. Please remember to keep Christ in your Christmas this year!
My last craft show for the year is over...well, almost over. There's still the clean up and the paperwork. Oh, the paperwork!!! You see...this is not only a show in which I just am an exhibitor...but also one I co-host with some friends. I'll post more about that later, but here are a few pics. Wish I had more, but the battery died in my camera. I should have been a girl scout and been prepared with a spare one.
This is the community center's auditorium before the crafters arrived to start setting up their booths.
Look at the shine on that floor. See the reflections of the columns?
This is a shot of the parking lot minutes after we opened. You can't see it very well, but the cars are parked 4 rows deep.
These are some of the booths.
Yes, even MEN came by the droves!
Okay...the real reason the men were there...FOOD of course. My sisters were serving up some fine homemade taco soup and chicken salad croisant plates complete with fruit salad, a pickle, dessert and a drink. All the lunch proceeds went to The American Cancer Society!Thanks to all the support of the community for this worthy cause, they more than met their goal. This is the lunch line.
Before you know it, it will be time to start planning for the 2010 show! First, we have to get over all our aches and pains!!! Twenty-two years of doing this, is taking its toll!
