Orphanage Christmas Party

I was fortunate enough today to spend most of the day at the orphanage with a dedicated group of youth from the Jesus Maria Chruch. I love walking into the home and being greeted with 30 faces waiting for hugs.

We had fun celebrating Christmas together with reindeer facepainting, decorating cookies, eating chicken nuggets (kids one request!), playing games and reflecting on why Jesus came to earth. 

It was the first time any of them had ever decorated a cookie, it was exciting to watch how elated they were to be able to do it. 

We also got to give away sooooo many things! Coats, blankets, stuffed animals, toys, pajamas etc. All donated by some very generous people! The kids were so excited to PICK out their new clothing or toys. 

It was a great time. Basically, we pumped them full of Coke, Sugar cookies, and candy and then left! haha
