Christmas Tree Lighting

Every year, Mariners Church has their traditional Christmas Tree Lighting.
And every year, the College Ministry dresses up as the cast of the 12 Days of Christmas to lead the crowd {of about 5,000} through the song.

Cole and I spent the week buying, taping and spray-painting the costumes...
All of our students did a great job.

4 Calling Birds, 5 Golden Rings and 6 Geese-a-Laying7 Swans-a-swimming and 8 Maids-a-milking
9 Ladies Dancing and 10 Lords-a-leaping
11 Pipers piping and 12 Drummers drumming
After the song, we took a few pictures:
Cole and his son, Jack
Brittany and Emilie
My Papa, Sunny and Mama who came to watch the whole show
Alison and Emily
It was a very fun, family-feeling way to begin the Christmas season...
I loved it...and am really excited for the continued tradition.
