This is a little slow in coming but I wanted to share with you some pictures of Tricia's Christmas party at school. She is in kindergarten of course and so they get to do some fun stuff. She was so excited about me coming. I snapped this first picture during snack time. I really like it. She has a great smile.
She had two crafts. One was a gingerbread man and the other was a wreath with her picture in the middle. This is the unfinished gingerbread man.
The finished product.

The wreath before it was finished.

The finished wreath.
One privilege I have had is only working part time so I am able to go to a lot of the school functions. I am thankful for this privilege. Not all Mom's get to go to their childrens parties at school. Tricia had a great time. Her teacher gave them these bags to use as a stocking. They were covered with snowflakes. There are 19 children in her class so she had 19 gifts in the bag plus something from her teacher's helper. She was thrilled of course.

I asked another mommy to take this picture of me and my girl.

We were like last minute getting these pictures done but I thought they turned out fairly good. The background for the pictures was the village scene display for the Singing Tree. The church had a lady from Jupiter Islands to come and paint the scene for the program. She did a great job. Not only did we get our pictures taken there, but so did a lot of other families. I guess this was the most popular scene this year. I don't have them in the exact order that I wanted them, but I am so glad we were able to do this.

We also had some pictures taken with grandparents. My mother is in this one.
Tom's parents were here for the holidays.

The girls with their beloved Aunt Brennie my baby sister.
This last picture is my very favorite. We did this one after church on Sunday night as an after thought and it was the best. Thanks Sweetie for humoring me!!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas!!
