Christmas 2008 - Part 1

I have missed blogging! We were so busy getting ready for Christmas and then traveled out of town for 10 days that I have been unable to load pictures or post about our Christmas happenings (and there were plenty of them)!

They boys had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed every minute of their Christmas events in Spartanburg, Alabama, and Mississippi. I'm going to try and highlight what we have been up to the past several weeks.

The boys both enjoyed Christmas parties at school.

Our preschool choir sang several Christmas songs at church. Ty has been on the big stage in "big church" several times and seems to enjoy being in front of everyone. This way Micah's first time. It took him an entire song to warm up. He didn't sing the first song, but held his head down and looked at the floor.

Ty also had a Christmas program at school. All of the 4 year old classes and the K-5 class participated. They did a great job learning many new songs!

I saw the idea for these cute reindeer cookies in a magazine I got from my friend Tracey. I thought we would try to make them. I think they turned out cute and the boys enjoyed making Christmas cookies to leave for Santa. (Ty enjoyed making them. I think he finished about 12 before Micah finished 3. Micah enjoyed eating all of the pieces that were supposed to go on the cookie!)
To be continued....

I used to stick my tongue out when things required extra effort, too. Made me especially attractive at dance recitals. Now I'm craving nutter butters. :)

I really admire you guys, sleeping away from home with small children for 10 nights!!!!!! We were only gone for three nights and Bucky and I thought we were going to pull our hair out.

Hey! I sent you a blog award. Who's got the time right. It's kinda like those chain letters from highschool or those numerous emails where you have to pass it on to ten people or else. Anyway, I just felt like I needed to pass it on to all my good friends whose blogs I thoroughly enjoy reading. Do with it what you like. It's at my blog!! Let's get together since the men are gone!! Have a good one!
