Austin had his last day of school for 2009 on Thur (Dec. 17). They had a "Happy Birthday Jesus Party" and had a bunch of different activities to do that day followed by lunch from Dairy Queen & cake. Austin & I decided to make little goody bags for each of the kids in his class. The bags each had a Sesame Street coloring book & pack of crayons along with a little card from Austin.
These are the bags for each of the kids along with the teacher's gift. I wanted to make each bag look like a reindeer but decided to save myself the stress and just taped a cute little Santa tag on the front & tied it with a ribbon & it still looked cute.
These are some of the things Austin made at school for our tree. I love the little frame (which he colored) with his photo.
This is a bell that the class made out of a cup and the little red & green dots are actually his little finger prints.
Hopefully we will be able to keep Austin entertained during his holiday brake from school. Grandma-ma & Papa will be visiting for a few days and Grandpa & Daddy will both be off some. I can see many trips to the mall playground & to the discovery center over the next few weeks.
