>12th day of the twelve days of Christmas and we come to the end

>Our secret elves did not let us see them tonight, but they did tell us who they are. They are the young ladies in my church (teenagers 17-18 years old and their teachers at church). Can I just say how great that is to me that teenagers would take the time to make such fun for my children. The children got so excited each night I couldn’t have asked for a better gift than to see my children excited about this sort of thing. I know, silly, but it was great fun for them.

We got ice-cream drumsticks tonight.

day 12 of 12 and we come to the end

Note reads:
The twelfth day has arrived, and on this our last night,
One dozen drummers would be a grand sight.
But the noise of their drums would hurt my head,
So eat these “drumsticks” we bring you instead.

And so we wish you a joyous Noel,
We know that you’re hoping our name we will tell.
We won’t keep it a secret because we love you.
Love, The Young Woman Laurels and Leaders too!

    >Very cute!! It has been so fun to see what you got each night. I should suggest to my kids that we try this one next year. They have loved doing the Nativity Journey this year and last year too, so I don’t think they will want to change that though. I sure appreciate THAT idea from you too!Have a wonderful Christmas!!
