Lectures and Workshops

Last night the owners of all of these shoes (& a few more pair!) celebrated Christmas at our house. Everything from dainty small shoes to big boat tennis shoes..... we had the Junior and Senior high kids from church for dessert & a white elephant gift exchange at the end of their progressive dinner. What great kids they all are!
The gift exchange was hilarious.... a day old taco, Justin Beiber poster, Mrs Potato Head, to name a few of the gifts. Everyone was laughing & went home happy. Oh, & they took their shoes with them! But the bright pink ones stayed. They live here. And the black Nikes too... So glad my kids get to be part of such an awesome group!

That's really funny, Mrs. Potato Head always turned up when I was in that youth group too!

Ellyn, I just laughed when I pulled up your post because I posted a photo of shoes at our house on my blog earlier today!! LOL Hope you are having a great Christmas week.

What a wonderful picture! When my kids were that age we used to have a house full all the time, in and out, poking their heads in the pot of whatever I was cooking or in the refrigerator to see what snacks I might have, kissing me on the back of the neck because they knew I'd scream, just being kids. Church youth groups are totally awesome. blessings, marlene
