More Christmas Fun

We have loved having Luke home almost the whole month! Can you tell my little cookies are excited?
One night we decided to wrap Preston up in swaddling clothes. He thought it was the funniest thing ever!

The kids had their school program, and I think they are both stars in the making! Haha! Preston couldnt really figure out why his family was sitting at a table, and he was having to ring the jingle bells. He ran to me as soon as their song was over…it was precious!
I need my mama!
Kate also was a little timid starting out, but she sang every word and did the motions too.IMG_0519 IMG_0518 
These are Preston’s two precious teachers. He ended up being the only one in his class, so they are going to move him up next semester. I think he will love it, but his teachers are going to miss him. He has been SPOILED by these two!!! I am so thankful that his 1st experience in MDO has been so awesome.IMG_0538

Someone asked me the other day if my kids really loved each other as much as it looks like on my blog. And the answer is YES! They are each other’s best friend and I love love love it!IMG_0567 IMG_0570
