Young Girls Christmas Party!!

I lead a bible study at my house every Monday night for Middle and High school girls from church and I was thrilled to host a Christmas party for them last night!!!

These girls are such a blessing to me and I feel honored that God has given me this role as mentor to each of them!!! I hope I am making a small impact in each of their lives, but I sure know that they are making a huge impact in mine!!

Christmas Programs!!

We had a full day of Christmas Programs today!! First was Grayson's program at preschool!! Since I am one of the music teachers, I was excited to help the kids prepare for the program this year and so proud of the wonderful job they all did!!!

Grandma Mackanos was in town and got to see her first of Grayson's programs!

He did so great and sang every single song!!! Such an improvement from last year!!




He had a big crowd cheering him on!!

With his sweet teacher, Ms. Natalie!!

Next, we were off to our Christmas Pageant at Church!! 
He was the cutest little sheep I've ever seen!!!



All of the kids did an amazing job and it was by far the best Christmas pageant I've ever seen!!! A special thanks to my Mom for donating most of the costumes for our church for this production!!


And I must say little girl was a trooper through both programs!!!

So thankful for these special times when our sweet boy gets to sing his little heart out for Jesus!!!
