We will have a covered dish/ snack or dessert if you can bring. We made ornaments last year with each child’s name in them on everyone’s ornament so that is going to be a tradition. I have several different styles to choose to make but really want to make sure I have enough so if you could please let me know how many are coming that would be great. We will also release Chinese lanterns in memory of our Angels. Hope to see you there.
