Holiday Open House @ the library

It's no secret.... we l♥ve the public library!

Last weekend they had a holiday open house, so we stopped by before lunch. They had the kids decorate bags for the "Meals on Wheels" program.
The kids got to make a 3D star ornament to put in the bag.
They filled the bag w/ a small snack and a bookmark and then waited patiently as the teen volunteers sealed the bags. We explained that the bags were for disadvantaged elderly people and that Christmas is a time for giving to the needy.
The girls were able to make a quick popsicle stick reindeer craft. They had cookies and apple cider, too.
But, the biggest treat of all was the chance to meet Comet, one of Santa's reindeer!
