Another milestone passed....

Being the procrastinator I am, I figured I needed to get these in now.. before its Easter and time to post new pictures. Picture from Hometown Yesterday was Gracie's first official school Christmas Party :)   The kids had a great time decorating their cookies with icing, sprinkles, and holiday marshmallows.... then devouring them. Picture from Hometown   They got to go 'Ice Fishing' and everyone caught a bagful of goodies on their lines.  Convincing them to keep their bubbles and balloons in their goody bags until they got home was another feat....  

Then they knocked down some bowling pins in elf costumes with a wooden ball to win a treat bag... again with the convincing thing because this bag was full of candy!  I finally decided I'd had enough chasing kids down before they got theirs opened, so I stashed the candy bags inside their respective school totes.... out of sight, out of mind :) 

Picture from Hometown Mrs. Preschool Teacher received many lovely gifts, including a big, red, shiny, glass ball ornament, from Gracie (I really let her pick her own presents, so far..so good), that read "To a very special Teacher".  Then Mrs. PT played a very silly Santa with some fluff from another gift..... silly, girl ;) Picture from Hometown   The kids did the neatest paintings.... they each made a Christmas tree of upside-down hand prints of green, then they used royal icing to adhere mini m&m's for ornaments.  It is a cool idea, I think...  

So, all and all, it was a good time.  There are two kids in her class that I am especially fond of... Jake and Kailee.  Jake and I bonded at the field trip to the park.... he was my climbing buddy :)  And Kailee, I fell for on the dog grooming field trip... she is such a sweetie.  Wonder if its wrong to like other people's kids more than your own sometimes?!   

Am kidding, of course.  More likely its because mine would much rather play than hang with her mom :)  I'm sure these two 'angels' aren't really what they seem to be... but I just eat 'em up every time I'm in her class.   

That wraps up the Party entry.  

Two days and counting......
