It’s My Favorite Time of Year…

I started typing up this long post about where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing and then pressed the backspace key and deleted it all.
I have been busy with Christmas related activities, lot’s of them.  You know all that extra stuff that goes along with this month.  And when we weren’t busy, I sorta still was.  See….watching Christmas movies.

Kelsie’s class had a banana split party and called it their “Christmas party” last Friday.  It was a lot of fun and a sticky mess. :-)  Then this past Monday their class invited the parents to come for breakfast.  When I finally got to my class that morning I had to wrap 19 gifts, all from the kids to their parents.  They worked so hard on their ornaments that they made for them.  I hope that some of them didn’t let their parents open the boxes yet. {crossing fingers}
Yesterday was our class Christmas party and Kayla stayed out of school and came with me.  She loved coming last year the couple of times she did to hang out.  I told her about the little girl that would probably be hanging out with her all the time…and I was right. :-)  Kayla loved her!  She kept saying “she’s so cute with her little dimples”.  She sat next to Kayla for half of the Christmas sing along in the multi-purpose room. 
Our party was a blast!  The kids decorated sugar cone Christmas trees and had pizza. Me and Xander’s {Kelsie’s bf} dad went and took them out of class and brought them over so they could have pizza too.  {his little sister is in my class}  Then his mom, dad, sister and him came over to decorate cookies and play while Kelsie and Xander exchanged their gifts.

They are too cute together.  I’m probably gonna be sad when/if they ever break up.  Maybe they’ll be one of the few that stick together…you know Kindergarten sweethearts that end up getting married. ;-)  They have been bf/gf since the first day of Kindergarten.  Kelsie’s had to put him on the spot a time or two..saying it’s me or her and he always says Kelsie. 
She picked him out a Transformers wallet with a chain and he got her a Tinkerbell necklace.

After opening gifts and decorating cookies, they all played Twister, hide-n-go seek, and went outside and rode Kelsie’s Barbie 4-wheeler.  Xander and Kelsie rode together and then he drove his sister, Clover around.  Kelsie said that she should have been the one driving…that he almost ran them into a palm tree and off into the ditch.  I told her that women drive better. Ha! 
Since I’ve also neglected to post my Christmas trees, I guess I should make it this post too. ;-)

And that’s pretty much it.  We plan on going Thursday night out to the beach where they have transformed the waterpark and parking lot of where the old Miracle Strip used to be into an ice skating rink and tree/candy cane forest.  The kids can’t wait!  It’s been a whirlwind of a month and I’m sad to see it all coming to an end.
