School Christmas Parties

Jake and Ella Kate each had Christmas parties at school last week, along with a "Happy Birthday Jesus" party and chapel service. I was able to go to each chapel service and party. I feel so blessed to be able to be at every special event the kids have. I love, love, love being there for them!!

Jake's Party with Ms. Leigh and Ms. Denise

We made Ms. Leigh into a Christmas tree and decorated her with candy canes! Hey, it was her idea! :)

How cute is this...Rudolph relay race...Zoe is touching her red nose to Jake's cheek.

Run, Jake, Run

Everyone wearing their Rudolph noses...

Making reindeer food to leave outside on Christmas Eve!

Look at my Bible for chapel!
All the kids had little Bibles to take to chapel and read with Pastor DJ.

Time to show mom what I've learned...

This is how you sign "Jesus"!

Time to eat - let's pray.

Look at all those cute little people!

And finally, Santa comes to visit!!
Santa gives Ms. Stacey a special hug! ;)
This just goes to show how powerful peer pressure is...even in 3k! Ella Kate has never once sat on Santa's lap with mom & dad. But she hopped right up there like a pro when she saw all her classmates do it! She did turn really, really red - she got that from her mama!
