Our Angel

Angelic Amelia in her preschool Christmas pageant…DSC_0013

I had to include the picture below, too. The kid playing the star kills me. Mary’s not shy either apparently. My favorite moment, other than Amelia’s cute smile, was when the Angel Gabriel forgot her lines, “I come to you with great news! (pause) Um… (pause continued) Um… (more pause) – OH, you’re going to have a baby!” Love it.DSC_0012

Handmade Holiday

‘Tis the season to be sewing! Here are just a few of the handmade gifts I’ve made this month…mompillow wreathpillow reindeer owl2014a owl2014b Bcapesa Bcapesc Bcapesd Bcapese

The Batman capes were a special order from a co-worker for her sons (I just asked the kids to model them for size). The owl bag was another special order from a co-worker.

Pretty Preschoolers

Here are two pictures from Amelia’s recent field trip to the Children’s Museum. The girls are really just waiting in line in the first picture, but I love how they look like teenagers waiting outside the principal’s office, perhaps thinking, “Uh-oh…” The second picture is the same group inside the giant bubble maker. Adorable.12-17-2014 6-18-38 AM 12-17-2014 6-18-26 AM

Christmas Carols

Bands, orchestras, and choirs from 4 schools sang and played Christmas carols at the Ghent Tree Lighting Friday night. Ben’s class, along with the school band and the 2nd graders, sounded great. Nice holiday evening…DSC_0025 DSC_0029 DSC_0030 DSC_0032 DSC_0034

Decorating With Memories

The kids and I had fun decorating the tree on Saturday. Ben especially enjoyed seeing ornaments he now remembers from past Christmases. It was really sweet. Amelia’s more of a novice tree decorator, but she’s catching on quick.DSC_0021 DSC_0022 DSC_0023 DSC_0027 DSC_0028 DSC_0029 DSC_0024 DSC_0025 DSC_0026 DSC_0031
