As usual, our Christmas season was kicked off with your class Christmas program. This year, since you're in the big Pre-Kindergarten class, you actually got to put on a play of the first Christmas. My little bear was the first Wise King, and your line was, "I see a beautiful star! Let's follow it!" You and your class did such a good job, and then at the end, you all got to play the hand bells - another Pre-K special thing. It took a couple of runs through, but eventually, "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" rang out loud and clear.
Ms. Jan, Ms. Nancy and Ms. Katie did a great job of getting your class all prepared, and the show made all of us parents so proud.
You, Me and Daddy after your show.
Grandma and Grandpa Brooks and Grandma Davis also came to see your show!
You were very decisive this year, as it pertained to your Christmas wishes. And as usual, once you made up your mind about what you wanted, you never deviated. You asked Santa for a drum set, a Lego Airplane, a bowling ball and bowling shoes, and a monster truck. After a conference call with the Grandmas, Mommy and Santa, we all decided to break down your wishes. Santa brought you the drum set and Legos, Momma was able to procure the bowling ball and shoes (which was AWESOME!) and Grandma and Papa Davis gifted you the monster truck. It's remote control and plays music. Lord help. Grandma and Grandpa Brooks built you an elaborate electric train set up. You are such a lucky Bear.
You were so excited about your drum set! It is a nice beginner set, and at the moment, isn't as loud as I expected it to be.
You and your bowling ball. You are so proud of it!
You cant see them in this photo, but you had to put your shoes on and pose with your bowling ball. I LOVE the fact that you are so excited about bowling.
Christmas dinner in the barn this year! Our family is growing by leaps and bounds, so we're running out of room in the house. Grandma and Grandpa Brooks came out, too, and that was really nice. This was a neat touch. And I know it made Papa happy.
Me and my Christmas Bear. I love this little face so much.
It's a four alarm family Christmas. Where's the Tylenol?
That's a lot of family.
And so, that was Christmas. It was a great day filled with family, inappropriate jokes, horse-shoe tournaments, and lots and lots of food. And love. You are surrounded by people who love you, and that makes my heart so full. Merry Christmas, Little Bear!
