Candy Cane Lane

 Saturday afternoon, I had my 6th grade Sunday school girls over for a candy cane lane party! We focused a lot on the meaning of the candy cane too. I read the book, "The Legend of the Candy Cane". It is a wonderful book for everyone!
 I had a hot chocolate bar set up for the girls. We had extra goodies to add to the hot chocolate like white chocolate snow (almond bark shavings), semi-sweet mini chocolate chips, marshmallows, and candy canes. Yummy!
The table with the candy cane bookmarks and sweet minty treats!
I made up two baskets full of these.

 We ventured out in the cold to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
Hannah, Kytney, Peyton, Annabelle, Kennedi, Mikayla and me.
Yay for Christmas munchies!
Peyton and Kennedi enjoyed their "Santa Coca-cola".
We had chex mix, sausage balls, cocktail weinies, peppermint bark and hot chocolate.
 Candy Cane sweeties!
 My sweet friend, Jayme helped me so much with the party.
Doesn't everyone love photo props? I know I do!

 We all gathered in the living room to watch "Christmas with the Kranks". It is always hilarious to watch during the holidays.

We had such fun together. They are great girls! It is such a priveledge to be their SS teacher.
 Aren't these lights gorgeous?
We went to the Fayetteville square with our friends, Rob and Jayme. It was so beautiful.

Everyone in NWA loves these Christmas lights. It is the perfect date night for the season, or of course a night out with friends!
We can't wait to spend Christmas with family. It will be so great.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

What a cute theme for your party! Last Saturday a grand daughter spent the night and we drove to look at lights. I told her when we got home, we would have a hot chocolate bar and gave her a list of what she could choose from. She commented, 'Mommy would never allow that at home!' It sounded so funny!
