A Preschool Christmas Celebration

On the last week of school before Christmas break, Brody's preschool put on a little Christmas concert for all the parents and families and then his class had a little party for the parents to attend.  We loved getting to share these special days with our little guy.  He seems to have a good case of stage fright like most of the kids in his class, but I was proud that he was doing his best to be brave and not cry on stage as all the kids around him were crying.  I was determined that I would try to not let him see me to see if that would help keep him from getting sad, but he was looking around so sadly at all the faces in the crowd like he was just searching for that one familiar face so I finally gave in and let him see me.  He immediately perked up with a little smile for me, but then he just couldn't stand being on that stage another minute and started off towards me.  I met him and went to sit with him on the stage so that he would stay and "perform."  He didn't sing, but he definitely knew the songs and motions and even smiled a little.  After the kids performed, they all joined their families in the audience for a family sing-a-long.  He loved that, and when some of the older kids started going back onto the stage to sing, he and his big brother went too.  He loved having his big brother with him.

A little unsure about all the unfamiliar faces.

But he was okay once Mommy joined him.

He loved ringing his bells for Jingle Bells.

A plate full of goodies.  He really wasn't very interested in eating his cookies though.

Brody and his friend, Sierra, pose for a picture. I think these two stick together a lot at school.  Young love maybe?

Sierra had her mouth full of cookie.

We contributed money towards the class gift, but Mommy wanted to give Brody's teachers a little something special from him so she made these little "monogrammed" candy jars.  She just wrote on the jars with a silver paint pen and filled them with festive colored chocolate candies.

Some cute paper bags and printed tags completed these cute gifts.
