Somehow I’ve managed to not attend 5 out of the 7 holiday parties on our calendar this holiday season because of conflicts and just not enough hours in the day. BUT I did make it to the kids parties at school. I always sign up to help for all classroom parties and then when it comes time, I panic and wonder why I over commit. But I never regret seeing these cuties having fun at school.
It’s tradition at Manchester Park for the 4th graders to make ugly sweaters to wear to the winter party the following day. This year, Morgan was available in the afternoon (trying to avoid studying for finals) and came to help hot glue a million holiday trinkets on sweaters…
Look how awesome it turned out!! Now that is one UGLY sweater!!
Because I was trying to be thrifty, I took apart Jake’s ugly sweater from his 4th grade year for Drew to use. What I didn’t realize is Jake needed to wear one for his choir caroling this year. Oops! Guess I should have just splurged on that $5 Walmart purchase. However, he probably would have looked ridiculous in a sweatshirt from 4th grade anyway! He’s grown quite a bit! This is Jake’s masterpiece from 2 years ago…Not to worry, Morgan had a sweater for Jake to wear as he officially wrapped up his 6th grade choir career. They went caroling through the school…now that’s brave!! There he is in the green antlers looking very sweet in that sweater 😉Meanwhile, back at Manchester Park, Drew and his classmates were chucking jingle bells at each other and trying to catch them in plastic cups. Drew’s partner was a disaster and gave him quite a challenge trying to catch the bells. I’m guessing softball is not her strength.Either way, the Rudolph brownies were a hit with the kids and these ugly sweaters are simply awesome!I scurried over to Reece’s 2nd grade party and although I missed a majority of it, she seemed to be having a ball.And look at this amazing candy cane art she created…And for someone who claims he’s not good at arts and crafts, Drew really killed it on this poinsettia art!
Woo hoo!! Cheers for Winter Break!!
