As with every year, we continued the never-ending process of preparing for Christmas this week. Buying presents, decorating the house, and enjoying tasty hot beverages continue, but we also must partake in our annual school Christmas parties.
We begin at Owen’s school.
It looks like it was a pretty simple affair, complete with a gift exchange.
Apparently the party happened to coincide with music day, so Christy stuck around a little to catch some photos of Owen enjoying himself.
Luckily I was able to find some time to attend the second Christmas party of the week, which took place at Max’s school. This was a little more complicated and required some parental intervention. It started with us setting up a couple of stations while the kids were asked to find a paper doll that kept moving around the room. Whoever found it was rewarded with a small prize.
Then it was time for us to put the activity centers to use. First up for Max was the snowman building station.
When we were done with that, we moved over to another snowman-related activity.
From there, it was on to the snowball roll activity.
Then, finally, it was time to decorate a Christmas frame.
One party in a day isn’t nearly enough, so we went to pick up Owen and prepared ourselves for the annual day care party that would take place in the evening. This went pretty much down to the usual routine.
It was an eventful week, but it’ll pale in comparison to the deluge of photos we have coming for the next one. Might take a little while to get everything processed and written up, but I’m sure I’ll get to it soon. If you want to check out the rest of the photos from the week, you can click here. Otherwise we’ll see you next week for Santa’s arrival.
