Day 11: Christmas Program at church
Our church put together a great Christmas program this year, which included the children singing a few songs at the end. Jake & Mallory knew the songs by heart & were super excited but were once again overwhelmed by the bright lights & crowd of people staring at them. This was pretty much how they looked the whole time:
Jake made his way through the kids to get to his friend Colby but still didn't join in the motions.
Lost in Mallory-land! Maybe next year we'll be ready to participate.
Day 12: Hand print Santa ornament
These ornaments made from craft foam & felt turned out really cute, but somehow I missed getting a picture of them.
Day 13: Make white chocolate popcorn
An annual favorite in our house!
Day 14: Read Mercer Mayer's Merry Christmas Mom and Dad
Day 15: Preschool Christmas party
Sadly, Jake didn't get to go to the party because he had by that point caught Beau's hand, foot & mouth disease. Grammy was sweet to watch the boys for me so I could party with Mallory. She had fun stenciling a Christmas pillow case, decorating sugar cookies, listening to a story & exchanging books with her friends. I brought all of Jake's goodies home for him, & he really wasn't too sad about missing out since he got to play with Grammy.
