Every year for the past 4 years or so, Nathan and I have headed up the annual Youth Christmas Party at our church. We always try to think of a creative theme... the last few years have included the Rock Awesome Christmas Sweater Party, Masquerade, and Pajama Jammie Jam.
This year, our theme was glamo. That's glam camo, for ye less informed. One of the students suggested a camo theme (we have several who hunt), but we decided to give it a dressy twist... somehow... sort of. It was fun to see everyone's interpretations on the theme!
We had a runway show so those who came dressed up could strut their stuff and compete for prizes (Smoothie Bean cash!). The walks were HILARIOUS, and we had so much fun cheering and laughing!
Our top 3! Their outfits were awesome, but their walks really won us over. Great picks, judges!
Before this portion of the party started, the youth group spent a couple hours singing Christmas carols to many of our church family's shut-ins... they LOVE being visited and sung to every year, so I'm really happy so many of the students showed up!
Every bite of our nine-foot party sub was devoured, as well as about a hundred cookies and I don't even know how many chips and 2-liters.
Nathan told the Christmas story and reminded us of the true gift of Christmas (it doesn't stop at the manger scene!). We had a White Elephant gift exchange with lots of ridiculous presents. ...overall, it was just a super fun night with lots of awesome people. Thanks for letting us hang out with you!
