Our church Christmas program this year was a bit different than last year. It really does vary each year depending on who is in charge. There are some years that the kids just sing and other years that they put on a skit. This year was both, and it was really cute. I think they have just done the singing in the past few years, so it was a nice change. It was early this year. It was on Dec. 6th. It was nice to have it early and done before everyone became really busy with the holidays approaching.
Here is Ashton and his friend being silly. They thought they were going to have to wear them and they weren't very thrilled, but when they found out they didn't, they were relieved and just had to put them on for fun.

One part of the church Christmas program that has never changed is the gift collection at the end. We even did this when Jerry and I were kids and we were part of the Christmas program in this same church. They have giant stockings that the kids put their unwrapped toys into for area organizations that give to those in need.
I missed Sawyer's turn. I couldn't see him when he put his toy in the stocking.
As always, we go to the basement for cookies and juice afterwards. Santa is also there to see the kids.
