Saying a prayer. The 7th annual Teddy Bear Tea, hosted by the Billy Graham Library, was held Saturday, Dec. 6, at the BGEA headquarters.
The sold-out event drew more than 200 children, many of them returning guests.
A skit based on Ruth Bell Graham's book "One Wintry Night" about a boy who's injured in a snowstorm and hears the Christmas story for the first time when he takes refuge in a cabin.
Each child received a stuffed cat as a take-home gift. Billy Graham's wife, Ruth Bell Graham, who wrote the book that Saturday's program was based on, always loved cats.
Excited about the cuddly gifts they received at the Teddy Bear Tea.
The Christmas season is an exciting time of year—and a good chance to spend time with friends.
A few decorative sweets covered each plate.
