We are furiously packing and getting ready for a big two week trip down south. My little helper is just "hanging" out with me. Or maybe this a three-year-old's idea of how to hang yourself!
This certainly doesn't look like much, but it was. Before the accident! JF and Mr. Potato Head were having a snowball fight until Neylan tried to climb the bookshelf and Joseph Frosty fell over and the snowballs went everywhere! Adam carried him away on a stretcher and we just hoped that he would be healed quickly. Thankfully, he was and he was able to come back to play in the snow. Whew! That was a close one. He never was touched, so he didn't lose his magic today!
I think Joseph Frosty completely forgot to fly back to the North Pole the night before last, so we found him in the same spot that he was in yesterday! He must like it in the vase of ornaments!
Neylan had to come home today with a fever, so he didn't get to go back to school for his first Christmas performance. The show was called Penguins, Penguins, Everywhere! It was adorable and Grayson did a great job.
Afterwards, the parents bring treats to share. I can't believe I even allowed him to get all of this, but he chose a donut with frosting and sprinkles and a cupcake with red frosting. I'm going to pay for giving him all of this sugar and red dye later!
Today is the day we have been waiting and working hard for since June! The Christmas musical that I directed with over 80 kids! It's very labor intensive, requires LOTS of patience, and increases our stress level tremendously, but in the end, it went off without a hitch! The kids did a great job and it was so fun to watch Grayson make his stage debut.
Grayson was in a little trio singing Happy Birthday, Jesus. It was so cute!!
Now that Thanksgiving is over, I can start putting the rest of the Christmas decor up. We love putting our nativity set in the big window in the kitchen so that everyone can see it easily when they come in.
