Christmas Craziness

This week has been busy with both kids having Christmas parties. At one point we had 16 dozen cookies filling our house. Luckily for those that are partaking of them our family did NOT make them. We will be doing that for Santa.

Jude's party was Tuesday. They had made Rudolph shirts which all the boys had pulled the eyes off of by party time. They had a book exchange, sang some wonderful songs, played a game and topped it off by making icing Christmas trees decorated with M&Ms and chocolate chips. They were allowed to eat those so the activity and mess level was VERY high in there.

Ella's program/party was today. Jude was the big party man as he was allowed to attend this one as well. The program went well. Ella said her line beautifully and sang her songs very loud so we all could hear. I was a little distracted as Jude thought it would be funny to wipe boogers on my pants and socks the whole time I was trying to video. (see why we didn't make the cookies?) Anyway, I left after the 19 5 year olds were juiced up on chips, punch, cupcakes, cookies and other treats. I am sure Miss Elisha will get them down for rest time no problem!

I will post pictures when I get home. Hope everyone is enjoying all the pre-events of Christmas!

I am definitly feeling the stress of Christmas and I only have one with no parties yet. Anyway, I am so glad to know you guys have a blog. Ella and Jude are so big. I loved the Elvis card. Too cute and the Feliz Navidad last year. You have such cute ideas. I will have to keep up.
