December is always a crazy busy month with church Christmas programs, parties, birthdays, and Christmas! But it was fun and I'm thankful for the time I got to spend with family and friends. The month started off with the kid's choir program. The musical this year was Candy Cane Lane, a super cute story. Hannah really enjoyed the music and the picked a craft class this semester which she LOVED. The preschool choir actually joined the big kids on 3 songs this year so Abigail got to participate too. All the preschoolers wore Christmas jammies....so adorable!! (Photo credit goes to Jack Hess)
The adult choir and orchestra did a program as well. Hannah's choir sang a few songs and Nathan and I played in the orchestra. It was a really good program. No pictures of us playing, but here's good one of Hannah singing. (Photo credit goes to Jack Hess)
Abigail and I got to help at Hananh's Christmas party at school again this year. I'm so thankful that I have the opportunity to volunteer.
Hannah's best friend in kindergarten was Mikayla and she was so sad that she moved about an hour away over the summer. The girls have kept in touch on Facebook and mailing pictures. Mikayla's mom contacted me a few days before Christmas to say that she was renting some reindeer to come to her house for a little while on Christmas Eve. She wanted to invite us to come and see them. The girls were so excited to see Mikayla and the meet reindeer. The reindeer were so sweet and gentle. Such a fun experience!!
We still have another week of vacation before Hannah goes back to school. We're going to look at Christmas lights one night, and maybe have a play date. Otherwise we plan to hang out at home and relax.
