More Christmas Fun

We had fun getting ready for Christmas.  Class parties and visits from Santa...

Fun with boxes...Ziploc boxes make great hats!

Setting out the cookies for Santa!  We even saved him Thin Mints from the Girl Scouts (they stay in our freezer for Santa!)

Oma's Christmas Crafts with the Cousins

Oma sponsored a Christmas Craft day at her home this year.  We had a lot of fun with cousins and came home with some great projects.  It was fun with glitter, paint, felt, glue, gingerbread, candy, and other wonderfully messy stuff!  So glad Oma volunteered her house!! ;)

Elementary School Choir and First Grade Concerts

Here's our oldest's first Choir Concert.  They sang their little hearts out.  It was awesome.  Nana and Papa joined us for the fun.  It's inspiring to see our big guy loving music so much.

Yep, that's less than half of the choir.  We have a wonderfully huge school (over 1000 students), and this is an optional choir program, open only to 4-6 graders.

And next up...the First Grade Christmas Concert.  SO cute.  They wore their pajamas and sang some fun songs, including Smashmouth's version of "I'm Gettin Nothin for Christmas" (hence the beanies and sunglasses).  So fun to watch.
