School Programs

I had such a cute little video of Andrew's Preschool class singing us all Merry Christmas songs and I recorded over it when I recorded Sammy's class program that they did at the care centers! Sometimes I am very technologically challenged!! But these are the cute little gifts they made for us. :)
This is Sammy's 2nd grade class on their way into the care center to present their "Gift of Giving" program!
They all looked so cute and did such a great job.
At the end they all found a partner and did the "Reindeer Dance". It was so great to see the joy and excitement from these wonderful people.
Sammy's bow just kept falling off. We had it attached to a head band for her to wear on her head. We should have just put it on the box. Oh well!
I don't have any idea how to put a video clip on here but if I ever get time I might try to figure it out and put a short clip on from her program.

Thanks So Much!

Just wanted to tell you all thank you for the wonderful birthday comments! I love you and appreciate your nice thoughts and wishes! :)

This is my last year in my 20s so you better wish me a good one, after this year I'm going to be OLD! Actually, Ryan already tells me I'm old. But I am getting a lot of grey hair, so it must be true! Leave me a nice Bithday comment if you want! :)

My Greatest Gifts

Sammy's 2nd grade class is doing a play for a couple of the rehab centers in town this week. Sammy gets to play the part of a present so we've been working on her costume this week. This is kind of a preliminary. We've added a little more ribbon and I'll try to get a pic of the finished project before she takes it to school.
But seeing them all wrapped up like a gift made me realize that I really don't need anything else. These two truly are the greatest gifts I could receive!

Gingerbread Man

This was a fun thing that Andrew did at preschool last week. They just took a regular ice cream cone and frosted it with some green icing and then had some little candies to decorate it with and a gingerbread man and some little gummy bears to stand up in the snow (white icing) next to it. It was SO cute!

Playing in the Snow

Last weekend we went to Grandpa and Grandma's house and the kids got to play in the snow. This was about all there was, but it was enough for the kids to have a blast!

No Santa This Year!!

So we went to the ward party this year with the usual expectation of seeing Santa and having the chance to tell him the greatest desires of our hearts for Christmas this year. But instead we got to learn about the true meaning of Christmas and had a visit from the 3 wise men, who presented a gift to each child, just as they did to the baby Jesus at his birth. Overall, the kids were actually excited. Andrew was a bit disappointed and insists that we need to go to the mall so we can visit Santa. :) Samantha just said those weren't the real wise men you know, I think one of them was our bishop! haha! Can't get anything past kids these days!

We had some extra lights that we weren't using so we decided to put them up in the kids' rooms.
