A couple Sundays ago, we had our end-of-the-trimester party. We played a super fun game that involved candy and small prizes wrapped in a saran-wrap ball. (Thank you, Pinterest!)
Bro. Paco had a huge list of questions that covered all the lessons of the past 12 weeks. The kids would pass the ball until it got to somebody that could answer the question correctly. This kid would then have 5 seconds to unravel the saran-wrap ball as fast as they could to get as many prizes as possible.

There'd be a raucous countdown from the kids and adults as one child unraveled the ball....

|Austin was craziest unraveler - he did the most damage to it!|
|Me! Me! Me me me!|

Each trimester we have some sort of contest. This trimester, it was a competition to see who could get the most stars. The kids earned stars by memorizing verses, bringing a visitor, and being on time for Sunday school. If they brought a parent or grandparent they got double stars! Most of the kids (hehe) worked very hard, but as these things go, we had some kids that totally blew everyone out of the water.

January was a good month for her! She got the Holy Ghost at our New Years conference then won the Sunday school contest!

"Which one is she?" You ask. Well lets take a closer look.
|Look at the total shock on her face! She was so surprised!|
