This past Saturday morning, the local Boys and Girls Club was having a Christmas party and the whole community was invited. Aunt Leslie and Kathleen came to pick us up and off we went.
We got there a few minutes before they opened but there was still a long line waiting outside. It was another frigid cold morning, so they cranked up the buses for people to be able to sit in and wait in the semi warmth. Especially thankful were those of us with kids! Brr!
After waiting in the warm bus for about 15 minutes or so, they unloaded us and let us inside. In there was another game of waiting but at least it was indoors this time. The kids entertained themselves and the adults enjoyed live Christmas Carols.
After a few more minutes, they had us go to a room where they had a little skit going on. They had dancing and interactive games with the audience. Even my shy little girl got up on stage with a few of the other kids and started dancing with them!!!
I even got a couple short video clips of her up there! :-D
After the skit, they had us go to the next room where someone was waiting to take us to our table and took our orders. We had baked ham, stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes and a roll. All brought to us like a restaurant. :-)
While eating, they had another audience participation dance and guess who joined again!
After lunch, it was time to head to the next room to get presents!
It was a fun morning! I just can't thank them enough for doing this for the kids and families in the community. These are memories that'll last a lifetime.
