Christmas Happy

A certain little Stinker surprised me with a Christmas Happy today. I didn't check the mail b/c it was raining all day and then we went to Will's work party. When we got home, at about 8:30, I was exhausted and got the children and myself ready for bed and hit the sack...or so I thought. Will came in the room holding this package and I squealed with delight! I just KNEW!!!! I couldn't believe she selected ME!!!! The outfit is perfect - "Good Things Come In Small Packages" - and with our recent - "small boys" struggles - it just made my day. And she even remembered my other two with stickers - she must know children and how they get giddy over stickers!!!!! Thanks Becky!

We were forcasted to get SNOW today, but since that never happened, I decided to dress the children sans Christmas colors and go with snowmen for the Christmas Party!

Henderson doesn't have a snowman outfit, so he got to go in traditional Christmas attire!


My hands are FULL




They are all just "itching" to get into the presents!




But WHY can't I open it????





Henderson says, "I'm TRYING to get to the presents, mommy!"




This picture is from the Choir Program Sunday night - look on the second row behind Emma Claire and you will see her cousin Patton - they had just walked up onto the stage and he and the other boy had their hands on their ears b/c they thought the music was too loud - it was hilarious!


After school today, Emma Claire and I made our own Christmas Happy's for the childrens' classmates - I had a great helper! Maybe I have an INKLING of creativity in me!!!





Again, you're seeing finished product first, b/c I forget that blogger reverses the pictures!








Another hands over ears picture!



The patient 4 and 5 year olds, waiting to perform!
