Santa came to town!

Every year Santa comes and visits all the grandkids at Grandma and Grandpa McMullin's home. This is always a well anticipated event each year!  We go caroling as a BIG family to a lot of their neighbors and then head back to the house where Santa soon comes. He brings a small gift for each grandchild and then is on his way. Having kids excited about things always makes the holidays that much better!

Star Student

M&M got her chance at being the "star student". For this she comes prepared with a poster all about herself and presents it to the class. After that she was to teach the class some kind of science experiment. She really wanted to use dry ice, so she decided to show how you can fill up a balloon  using the gas emitted from the dry ice. All the kids were mesmerized by the dry ice. M&M did a great job!

Christmas Around the World

Little A had a program at school called "Christmas around the World". All the classes prepared songs, props and a little jig to songs from different countries. Little A's class performed "Feliz Navidad". It's always fun to see them work so hard to learn something and then see the final performance. All the kids always help with all the artwork for the props on the stage too.

Happy birthday Dad!

We celebrated Dad's 59th birthday together with pie! Of course his presents included a GIANT tootsie roll and a candy machine with only red, orange and purple skittles. All greens and yellows picked out since he doesn't like those flavors. What more could you ask for? :)  Happy birthday Dad!!
