What We've Been Up To

We went to a PTA meeting to watch the 2nd graders (Abby) sing Christmas holiday songs.

Abby had her class holiday party. One of the activities was to make a gingerbread house.

Andrew's kindergarten class performed the Gingerbread Baby. Andrew's main job was to run the smartboard. He also had a small part in which he was part of a crowd that was shocked to see the gingerbread baby in crumbs on the floor.

Andrew's class also had a holiday party. They did their own version of a gingerbread house and made Christmas pins.

Adam and I spent a day at the Biltmore which you can read about here.

We baked and decorated Christmas cookies. One of us may have eaten too much icing and vomited shortly after decorating said cookies.

The kids' main gift from me this year (they spent Christmas day with their dad and Santa dropped his gifts for them off there) was a Wii.

We have been playing a lot of Wii!

Next up, Panthers vs. Saints. Please pray it warms up. It's supposed to be 18 Sunday morning and mid 30s in the afternoon. That's a wee bit cold.

Now that is cold! Bundle up warm for that ball game. I am not sure I would go if it were that cold. :)
Glad you had a good Christmas season with the kids. God bless you and yours.

At least Adam can wear his snuggie...

And Andrew was perfect in his crowd role!

Those photos were great to look at. I really liked the picts of them making and decorating the cookies. The natural light was beautiful and the focus perfect.

It looked like Andrew was having fun being shocked. I bet that was funny to watch.

oh, If I wasn't on a diet, I'd probably be the one to eat too much icing, and vomiting.

Have a happy new year!

Santa brought us a Wii, too! Gotta say...I'm a little sore and out of shape.
