DVFX Christmas 2006

Every month, the big event for our Children's Ministry is called DVFX. And every month, we spend tons of time planning, rehearsing and setting up all the parts that go together for said event.

iscovery Village (the name of our kids' programs/classes/etc) Family Experience. It's fabulous. Kids can bring their parents, siblings or whomever they choose to experience what we do on a regular basis on Sunday mornings. Singing, stories, activities, and lots of silliness.

Since it's December, this month it was our annual Christmas event. Hundreds of families, lots of different crafts, cookie making, storytelling, service projects, and music everywhere along with a little bit of dancing.

Each class of kids gets a chance to perform (aka: shout Christmas carols while picking their noses) for their families and friends as well as providing numerous photo opportunities.

As you may or may not know, I lead a group of kids called the Half Notes. They're kind of like a choir, but a lot louder and with a bit more nonsense. Along with the singing kids, I also have a band. And I may have said this before, but they rock. (This may or may not have anything to do with the fact that Hubby is the leader of the band...)

Anyway, all of this to say we had this event last Saturday and it was amazing. The kids performed spectacularly, families had a blast, we had plenty of volunteers to pull it all off and chalked the whole thing up to another great year.

looks like it was so much fun! hubby said it was great. I was bummed to have to miss it - but time with niece was good (and enlightening, as you saw on my post). ;)

Wow, that looks like a lot of fun but also a lot of work coordinating everyone. You must really love your job!

It was a lot of fun. :) You did a great job as did all the volunteers and behind the scenes people. I know my kids left with sugar highs from the cookies and candy canes. :)

It is a lot of organizing, but I'm not the only one who works on this event either. I'm pretty much only in charge of the music aspect and then helping with setup and cleanup. But yes, I do love my job! :)
