Evan's School Christmas Celebration

I am not very "PC" around here and don't call Evan's school party a "Holiday Party" or any other more PC term.  For us, it is a Christmas celebration.  For me, it is just my instinctual greeting this time of year to say "Merry Christmas."  It is what I have always said and will continue to do so.  I don't even think about it before blurting it out.  I don't say it to offend.  I say it to spread the joy that I am feeling during this season of the year.  Evan sent us home a special invitation to his class party, and I knew I just had to go this year.  I missed several of his classroom parties and festivities last year.  I arrived a little late due to coming from work, but my sweet boy's face lit up when he saw me, and that made it all worth it.  They enjoyed their treats, he showed me some of the crafts he had made, and played a little game of pin the nose on the snowman.  They were all wearing their pajamas on the last day of school so he enjoyed getting to wear his Christmas pajamas all day.

Their treats for the party.

My boy ate most of his healthier treats and really could have cared less about the cupcakes.  I had to encourage him to eat the chocolate one he asked for.

He showed me his little gingerbread house.

His little friend, Taylor, was being silly showing off her green nose and mustache.

He refuses to take off his coat most of the day.

All of the kids pretty much got the nose in the right spot.  I'm not sure if this was because they could actually see through their mask or because the snowman was just the perfect height for them.

This picture was from a couple of weeks earlier when the school PTA invited us all to a little concert to hear some songs the kids were learning in music.  They actually didn't perform any Christmas songs, and the concert was a little disappointing for all although we enjoyed watching Evan perform.

We like to take care of our teachers for Christmas.  Evan's class just did individual gifts so we did a handy gift card to our beloved Target and made this yummy smelling homemade sugar scrub (so so easy, ya'll!).  I added a little handmade printable tag and painted the teacher's monogram on the jar for a special touch.

  1. Okay, that sugar scrub looks awesome! And I'm glad you were able to make it to Evan's party.

  2. I have made that sugar scrub before! It's like showering with cookie dough. Yum.
