Yesterday was a busy day. Cady’s Christmas party for school was yesterday (we are on break until the new year, time to break out the crafts) and Hadley’s last day of Kindermusik for the session was also yesterday. Both are important events to me, so I didn’t want to miss either. Luckily Jason had a personal day he needed to take before the end of the year, so he decided to spend the day with us.
After we dropped Cady off at school, we rushed to Kindermusik. We’ve really enjoyed this session. First, the other parents and kids are just a great group. It makes it so much more fun if there is a fun group of people to spend that hour with. All the kids are right around the same age, so it is fun to watch them together. And the parents are just really fun folks. We hope to have most in our class next year.
I was able to capture some shots during drum time.
Hadley and her buddy, Conway, sharing the drum so nicely.
After Kindermusik and some lunch, we headed back to Cady’s school for the Christmas party.
We made all her friends and classmates cute little goodies (inspired by a Pinterest idea, of course)
They had so much fun at the party. Lunch was Chik-Fil-A, which is always a winner. They made a couple of really adorable crafts and were just wild and crazy 3 year olds.
Cady was sad to leave because she is going to miss her friends and her teachers so much over the next couple of weeks. I can’t say enough how much we adore Ms. Kelly and Ms. Vicki. They are pretty much the best ever.
After naps, we decided to go pay Santa at the mall a visit. I was hoping by going on an off day at an off time, we might be able to miss the crowds. I was right! One group was in front of us. We didn’t have to wait long at all. I wasn’t sure how Hadley would react, but I was very prepared for her to cry. She did not disappoint.
She would cry, stop, look at Santa, and cry some more. It was hilarious. Poor little Pork Chop. I think I can get one more crying Easter Bunny picture, and our crying days are likely over. Hadley will probably be a huge Santa fan by next Christmas.
It was a fabulous fun filled day!
