Last Friday started out with Drew's Pre-School
Christmas Party at New Hope Christian School
It was a Pajama Party! You were supposed to
wear your favorite Christmas pj's but we don't
have any so Pokemon are second best
An hour later, Luke had his class Christmas
Party. The thing is, I thought his was a
pajama party too! But it WASN'T! I walked
in and Luke was the only one in pj's! And
Toy Story at that. I dropped him off quickly
and slipped out quietly and cracked up all
the way back to my car.
I went back at the end of his party and made
it for the "hot potato" game. Luke had no
idea he was the only one wearing his pj's :)
He was so excited when the music stopped on
Next he had to pick out a present. So many
to choose from.

garlands and I picked up a few gifts
as well. If you've never been to
Tai Pan Trading you need to go check
it out. It's a huge home goods store
with so many good deals! It's by
the Ontario Mills.
Next we headed home to decorate cookies.
We started with these gigantic
gingerbread men that the O'Keeffe's
gave us from Trader Joes.

The boys wanted help making their
gingerbread men into ninjas
I saw Drew eating some frosting
in between working on it, so I
had my camera waiting and caught
him in the act again!

Later that night my brother came over

These make me sick just looking at
them but they loved their masterpieces!
We have taken a long time to get around to
decorating, but thanks to my mom's help,
it's starting to feel a lot like Christmas
