Last Christmas Party @ School

Thursday was Lyndon's LAST School Christmas Party!  Boo-hooo!

The kids had Rudolph cokes in glass bottles-because glass is just MORE fun!  They also had numerous treats to choose from.

I brought our Photo Booth props that we used at Lyndon's 10th Birthday Party as well as numerous Christmas items I gathered.  I think that the kids had a lot of fun.

Lyndon LOVES Mrs. CK (as we called her in school)!

Nutcracker-Gingerbread House-Church Christmas Play

We had out annual church Christmas Play on Wednesday night.  The kids always do a great job memorizing their lines.  Lyndon chose the same part as last year so he had very little preparations to do.

 Waiting for Santa!!!!

Lyndon and Aubrey went to see the Nutcracker with Momma.  They ate at Olive Garden before and spent the night with Memere.

They created a delicious looking gingerbread together too.

Toys for Tots

Girls basket (Momma and Aubrey's loot)

Lyndon and Carl's boy basket.

Each year Momma takes the kids to Toy's R Us to purchase Toys for Tots.  This year they had a contest to see if boys or girls could get closest to their $100/person budget.  Lyndon and Carl worked hard to calculate as they went...unfortunately they went over budget by about $70 because they found really neat skateboards that must have been placed in the incorrect place on the shelf....Lets just say two kids will be really excited with their expensive skateboards....the funny thing is the boys thought it was such a good bargain to find the skateboards for only $19.99 that they bought several!  At least it is for a great cause!  After checking out they dropped their gifts off to the firemen and had a quick fire truck tour.  I think that it is WONDERFUL that Momma takes the kids to help those less fortunate.  She is teaching them lifelong lessons!

SLT Inductions

Lyndon participated in the 2012-2013 SLT Officer inductions in November.

 Lyndon ran for the office of vice-president and had to pledge to perform his duties to the best of his ability.

Finding out the ingredients for the punch....

Their REAL sides.....
