School Christmas Parties

So I am not sure why...but once again I decided at the beginning of the year that I should volunteer to be room mom for both of the kids classes. It is not that big of a deal until they have Christmas parties at the exact same time on the exact same day. Luckily Frank took a late lunch break to come help, but it was still a lot of running around. I'd leave one class to go to another and then back again. And each time I'd feel guilty leaving the one I was leaving. But the kids had fun. Sang Happy Birthday to Jesus, did book exchanges, decorated cookies and Christmas tree cones. And I think the teachers enjoyed their gift cards from the class. The kids school is awesome. I love their teachers. I love the directors. And I love how much they teach my kids about the bible. Between school and our church, my kids "get it" this year. They know the true meaning of Christmas. And they are really into the nativity scene and acting it out. Ellie wants to be Mary and she wants Hadley to be Jesus. :) So cute. And hearing them sing "Away in a manger, " and "Happy birthday Jesus-I'm so glad it's Christmas" makes my heart just melt. Ellie and Gavin keep asking when we get to celebrate Jesus' birthday and Ellie wants to know if God and Mary will be coming over to celebrate with us. Too cute!
And when we got home, I was trying to get some better walking shots...Ellie was trying to help her.
