Christmas program!

Oh man do we have a performer on our hands! Jameson's school program was earlier this week. The 3 & 4 year old class did 23 totally songs (not the whole songs) and this boy was full of animation the entire time! He did so well and has continued to sing is favorite line "Clip, clop goes the donkey, yes Ward (aka Lord)". Jameson's best buddy, Jeb came to the program. They are such a hoot to watch. On Sunday Jeb went to Home Depot with us after church. While we were driving there Jeb asked what we needed from HD. I told him really nothing, we just go there to walk around, play on the tractors and sometimes we buy things. This trip the only purchase was for large black trash bags. These were needed to put gifts in that are being given to needy children in our community. Our church took an offering and the money was used to buy gifts for children through the local United Way office. I offered to do some shopping. So this past Saturday I headed out to Kohl's. They were having some amazing deals for the early birds so I got there early (I think I was there around 6:30; I'd left the house at 5 and went to the jockey lot and then headed to Kohl's). I was able to shop for 5 kids, all before 9 am!. It truly is amazing what deals are out there if you're willing to search a bit.

In other news, this week we enjoyed spending time with my dad & deb. On Monday we got to go do a little sale shopping with my friend Sarah. Then yesterday we stuck around the house. I had quite a few gifts to finish making and put together. Thankfully they entertained Jameson so I could get these things done. I now only have 2 more gifts to make...unless of course I think of something else to make! Like last year when I decided to paint Jameson's car mat on Christmas Eve.
Last night Jameson watched the Charlie Brown Christmas show. So cute to watch him, knowing that this is one show that James & I both watched as children!

Sounds like you’ve been busy! I’m home with Hailey today, she’s sick, and she wanted to watch “Charlie Brown Christmas” this morning. It’s one of my favorites too. Hope y’all have a Very Merry Christmas!

Little ones are so precious at performances! He looks pretty cute in that striped shirt too. I need to get off this computer and go wrap or at least finish some projects. But it's so cozy in front of the fire :)) Happy Countdown this week!
