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
