Valentines is another FUN holiday and this one has been no different. But not unlike the rest of the holidays in recent years, it didn’t get celebrated on the actual day. Ours was celebrated today on the 13th. Paxton had a party at church with the youth group. Our Youth Leaders do a great job and work hard at it. The older set of the group went bowling, while the younger set stayed at the church building and made a craft, watched UP and played games. I didn’t get as many pictures as usual, I was too busy playing and eating too!!
In the middle of all the other things going on the older youth were in the building working on their service project. They made cupcakes and cards for the widows. Allison, Laurie and Hannah are working hard on their icing technique.
This one is Emily’s. Hers was pretty and stable and had a LOT of hearts in it, which was the goal. The boys were also upset, because she beat them at bowling. They claimed she cheated because she had the bumpers up. We just figured she was smarter for taking that option!
Wish I had taken a picture of the young ones making their craft. They made paper heart wreaths. I also introduced them to a cake walk. What fun that was! We actually made it a ‘prize’ walk. I had a basket of ‘happy meal’ toys and we used those for prizes instead of cakes.
In the evening, Paxton went with Mims and Paps to the Renaissance Center to see the Mandy Barnet Show. They had a wonderful evening. Paxton and Mims are big Mandy fans. Paxton got Mandy’s autograph and gave her a special Valentine. Terry and I had an equally wonderful time here in the Big City. We went to see the Houston County Community Theatre’s production of Some Enchanted Evening. It was a dinner and musical show. It is some of the best entertainment and it’s here in our back yard!
