Tis the Season to Rock the Ugly Sweater!

I am our school district's fifth grade reading teacher.  Earlier this school year we read The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and met a really fun character named Dwight.  Dwight wore an ugly sweater to school one day and had the entire school talking.  So, the students and I decided closer to Christmas we would have an Ugly Sweater Day.  We did just that and had lots of fun!

The Nutcracker

On December 8, the boys and I drove up to Amarillo to see The Nutcracker with Mama Chris.  We had a wonderful time!  It was a beautiful production and a great learning experience for the boys.

FPC Christmas Program 2012

Our church had their annual Christmas program this past Sunday night.  It is just so simple and beautiful!  There are no speaking parts, just beautiful songs.

Kade and Layton were both shepherds this year.  Layton was super excited that he had graduated from an angel! 

Hope your Christmas season is off to a wonderful start!

Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast

Layton had his Kindergarten Thanksgiving feast on the Tuesday before we got out for the holiday.  He dressed as an Indian.
