The Month of Christmas

The month of December is always so busy.  The business is usually a good busy.  We get to enjoy parades, parties, school programs, and Christmas lights.  All of this for one reason, the birth of Jesus. 

We started the month by decorating a Christmas Tree for David's class competition.  David and I worked hard on it and had a good time together.  We decided to make a Christmas Tree Person with a face, arms, and a bow.  Of course, David really, really, really wanted to win... and he did... 3rd place!  His tree got a green 3rd place bow and he got a Christmas game. 

My favorite is always Christmas on the Coosa.  Wetumpka knows how to celebrate Christmas.  My Mom, Aunt Nana, and I took the boys to walk around that morning.  David enjoyed the bungee jumping, slides, and bull riding.  Dillan and Daniel enjoyed the ride.

We went home for the boys to get a nap and made it back in time for the parade.  David rode on the BAMA Boosters float again this year. 

We decided to go to the zoo this year to see the lights.  Karla and Jim went with us.  It was a beautiful night with perfect weather.  There wasn't a crowd either.  The best part was feeding the birds. 

We celebrated Jesus' birthday at a Happy Birthday Jesus Party!  What fun!  The children played 3 games, jumped on inflatables, sang Happy Birthday Jesus, ate cake, and dressed up for the reading of The Christmas Story. 

The last day of school finally came on December 21st.  David's class had a Christmas Party the day before.  The children ate way too much sugar and played with their new goodies.  Mom and Dad were there to play too. 

Christmas is only in a couple days!  We wish your family a very Merry Christmas!  Remember the reason for the season!
