Well the Christmas Party in Braden and Dalton's 1st grade class was a huge success! Braden and Dalton took goodie bags to pass out filled with a special Christmas pencil, candy canes and hot chocolate packets. They brought home some really cute snowman ornaments that they made at school.
In the photo above, the kids are playing the last game of the party. The room mom is playing music and the kids pass a present around. When the music stops, the child holding the present gets to open it and it had something special for the classroom. Dalton "won" and got the last present that was passed around, which was full of chocolates to pass out. It was also pajama day which meant the kids could wear their jammies to school. Braden and Dalton did not participate with that as they think they are "too cool" to wear jammies to school. One of the problems from having an older brother, they grow up too fast!
After the Christmas party the boys and I went and did a little more Christmas shopping. I had to get Ashlyn's shopping done which I *think* I'm about done now. I just have to get one more thing for Christian, something for Nick (I did get him that cookbook from the Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins show) but I need a couple of other things for him, and just a few little things for the kids, oh and our traditional Christmas jammies...need to get those still. Oh, also need to haul the kids to the mall on Monday to let them spend their Christmas money from Grandma.
Are you ready for Christmas?
And now I am asking for your help:
I just visited Woody's Blog where he has posted about a little girl who is deathly ill and only wishes to receive Christmas cards for Christmas. I am going to copy and paste the story from Woody's blog and hope you will grant her this one wish for Christmas.
I wanted to get this out to the blogger community for your assistance.
First, click here;
or copy and paste into your webbrowser.
Basically, this is the story of a little girl who is only 4 that has a rare and agressive form of a brain tumor. Unfortunatley, there is nothing else that can be done and she has been only given weeks to live.
The only thing she wants for christmas is cards so she can read them.
Tonight, multiple fire,ems and police agencies are meeting at a local hospital(large parking area) with apparatus and then are proceeding to a local school to meet her and her family and to give her cards that all the agencies have collected so far.
If you want to make her christmas a little brighter, her address is in the article and I am sure she would love to get more cards from people.
I know this time of year can be a little stressfull for people and people don't like how the economy is doing, they don't like there jobs, they can't stand the inlaws..etc..
But you know what, when you look at this little girl and what she has had to go through in just a short time being on this earth, life really is not all that bad is it??
Thanks for your help..
