After our guests left we got busy decorating the house for Christmas. The kids love going through their boxes and looking at special ornaments from over the years. These days they decorate the tree all by themselves and it turns out perfectly.
Celia chose Anna from Frozen.
Noah chose a giant peppermint.
Micah chose a soldier.
Grandma & Micah making a dessert.
We love Uncle Tyler, he's always game for dress up.
Love these girls, too!
Celia thinks Aunt Rachel is quite special.
We pieced together enough winter gear for the big girls and headed to a nearby sledding hill. Good cousin time.
One of the traditions at Celia's preschool is the Thanksgiving feast. It is a big deal for the kids. Everyone brings something to share, older students make a favorite recipe at home and bring it to the feast. Celia's group was asked to bring a piece of fruit that became a mixed fruit salad. Celia chose to bring an apple and even helped cut it. Families are invited to come and watch the kids feast and listen to a couple of songs. Each child made a placemat for the meal and answered what he/she was thankful for. Celia was thankful for daddy.
Here is a video of Micah talking about the party that his teacher sent out.

Celia's preschool does a wonderful job of putting on simple, no stress programs for the holidays. The kids sit on the floor around a piano and sing and interact to seasonal songs in a way that doesn't feel intimidating. Yet, the parents get to watch them perform. A win/win. Here are a couple of shots from Celia/Snow White's Halloween celebration.
