So we’ve been busy! This will be a long post. I think.
First of all, at Maltby, the 5th graders each year have a pretty big play that they do. This year was all about pirates. Kathryn was a bit of a ham.
I think she enjoyed being in the play. If the pictures indicate anything…
One week later, Lauren and Karl were in their first band concert of the year. 3 solos were given out. Guess who got 2 of the 3 solos? Yup! Karl & Lauren. They did an awesome job and their names were in the program!
Here they are both standing up after their solos. No, we didn’t get front row. So my zoom lens was in between parents’ heads.
She is so pleased with herself.
As he is too.
Onto the next day… We didn’t get pictures of Lily with Santa last year because of this….
So I wasn’t prepared for this…
She was willing to go to anyone except the guy in red.
However, we did get this afterward:
So, after that, we had our Annual Christmas Party at my mothers!
Some highlights are:
Sitting around in the living room while reading the birth of Jesus.
Making sugar cookies.
The importance of dental hygiene.
Gingerbread Graham Cracker Houses
And last but certainly not least….
Lily taking Skeeter’s tennis ball and not letting him have it. Poor dog followed her around the house just waiting for her to drop it. He is so gentle with her. He just rips it out of my dad’s hand when he has it. (Please excuse the red eye. It’s after 10 at night. I simply just want this posted)
Question of the day: Do you have any fun family traditions that you would like to share?
