A Holly Jolly Christmas

I started my day with Princess C’s preschool program.  After staking out my spot on the 3rd row for 45 minutes and then listening to the preschool director ramble on interminably about how grateful she is for all of us, Princess C’s class finally processed in.  I was proud of her.  She smiled and sang and didn’t pick her nose even once.

I dashed out before the last amen and made my way down the road to my son’s school where his class was having their Christmas holiday party.  When I arrived, the kids were eating pizza and giving each other Rudolph noses with Crayola markers.

They ate pizza and cupcakes and then there was a serious round of Bingo Comet.

To wrap up the party and to help them burn off some of that sugar, there was a dance contest of sorts.  Every time the Christmas music stopped playing, the kids had to freeze.  The ones who didn’t freeze fast enough had to sit down.  My son was the last boy in the game, but several girls beat him out in the end.  The other mothers wanted to know if he learned his moves from me.  I assured them he has only his father to thank.

Merry Christmas!

    Good times. 🙂 Your kids are adorable! 🙂

  2. Cute pics!! As the mom of the kid who did pick his nose during the Christmas program I understand how excited you are that your daughter didn’t :).

  3. What a fun day! I love school Christmas parties. Did you wear a Christmas sweater in honor of the day or did you opt for a nice silver ensemble?

    Your kids look so cute and I’m sure they had fun. I love how you blocked out the other kids faces. So clever.

    Enjoy your weekend.
