At Night at the Fox

Aunt Jessica always gives the kids a choice for their birthday and Christmas gifts, the can choose an experience or presents. This year their choice was they could have presents or go and see Beauty and the Beast at the Fox, and both of my small people chose to go see Beauty and the Beast. Their very good friends chose to go as well. It was such a fun night. I got to get 3 little girls and one handsome man ready to go to the show.

They all came back and said it was a wonderful time and that they enjoyed everything about the show. It was a great experience and fun time for all.

A Mouse's Tale

Our church did the cutest Christmas Program this year. It was called a Mouse's Tale. Leanna was an adorable Julie Mouse and Hudson had the cutest little role as Darryl the Donkey! It was all about the animals in the stable and their story about the night baby Jesus was born. Truly a fun and funny and heartwarming little story. Our friends were shepherds and Cory the dancing Camel and some truly funny sheep.

Some pictures from the play. With the stipulation these pictures aren't the greatest and I am so thankful I videotaped this play. It was so funny and so sweet.

The kids worked so hard on this play and did a truly wonderful job. I am so thankful for my small people who were so excited to do this play with family and friends.

1st Grade Christmas Party

This is Leanna and her friend Lindsey at their Christmas Party! Isn't this a fun picture to start this off with :)

Here are the kids sitting in a circle playing hot potato with their Secret Santa Exchange gifts. It was a great idea and everyone had a fun time getting a special present.

This is Leanna with her special gift. It was full of princess awesomeness! What more could a little girl want. Not to mention it was full of crafty coloring fabulousness? Leanna's favorite!

A great time was had by all and I am so thankful that I just get to be there and be a part of her time in class. I am also glad that she wants her momma there...that is probably the best feeling of all.

Hudson's PreSchool Program!

I love watching my boy sing I must say. His preschool play for Christmas was so much fun and they all did such a great job!

Some pictures of the fun event!

These kids were so cute! They did such an amazing job.

Of course I had to take a picture of me and my boy! Our favorite pictures somehow always end up being the silly face ones.

He was so serious when he was singing. It was fun to watch my normally all over the place boy stand so very tall and still and concentrate on making sure he did it right.

Hudson and his classmates all worked really hard and did a great job!
It was a great way to end our week and start really getting into the Christmas spirit.

Nolan meets Santa Claus again ;)

SJID had the cutest little Christmas party this year. They even had Santa Claus come out. It was so great! Almost everyone was so excited to see him and get to hang out.

He loved Santa Claus. Which is so weird for me because both Leanna and Hudson HATED Santa Clause at this age!

And of course I had to have my picture taken with the boy. Gotta sneak those pictures in so they know I was present SOMETIMES ;)

I loved watching all the little guys waiting to take their turns to sit on Santa's lap. It was so fun and then cookies and milk afterwards! No pictures of that as I was busy making sure that nothing got spilled or dropped.
