We made Christmas cookies today. The kids had fun and only ate a bit of the dough. We plan to decorate them tomorrow.
We had our annual Christmas ornaments making day today. I love to see the kids incorporate their favorite things into the ornaments they make. This year they made some Harry Potter and Doctor Who ornaments. My favorite is the cute little Dalek the girls made out of clay for me. It is so adorable that I put it on my desk. I don’t think I’ll be packing that one away with the Christmas ornaments come January.
Falyn had a great time at the cheer competition today. She had a new cheer coach this session, Joie. They came in third place. Falyn was thrilled with her trophy and medal.
Everyone had a ton of fun at the Kindergarten Christmas Party. They made treats, decorated frames and had a book exchange.
The twins’ class had their Christmas Party this morning. During the party they made lollipops and gumdrop tree decorations.
The school’s annual Christmas show was today. Each class in grades 1 through 6 sings two songs. They all did great!
Jared and Riley’s class
Falyn’s kindergarten class put on a Nativity play today. Falyn was an angel. They all did such a great job and looked just adorable.
After ice skating, we made gingerbread houses. This year I bought two kits, so the boys could do one and the girls could do the other. Talia and Kayli convinced Falyn to do all the gingerbread people, leaving the girl house to the two of them to decorate. Everyone did a great job and had fun with only a bit of the candy ending up in mouths and not on the houses.
Falyn was so excited to finally be a Girl Scout and get to go to the annual Girl Scout Ice Skating Event. Since it was held during a free skate session, Dan had the twins’ Cub Scout den have a Ice Skating outing at the same time. Everyone had a great time.
Dan and the kids got up at 4 am this morning to watch the lunar eclipse. The twins got extra credit in science for getting up to watch it and sending in pictures.
