wow, what a day, what a day! I got to bed around 1am and was up at 6am, beginning our busy day. I know I accomplished a lot today but it seems a little fuzzy at the moment:)
Samuel headed off to school today in his pjs. His class had a fun Polar Express day where a conductor took their tickets to the train (a.k.a. the classroom!) and they got to watch the movie while drinking hot chocolate. With marshmallows and whipped cream.
I want to go back to first grade!
Zakkai was SOOOO excited for his school party today and couldn't wait to bake cookies. Of course, this morning I realized that the dough had to chill for 2 hours. Oops. A little over an hour seemed to be enough so Z and I worked hard making gingerbread men and snowmen for his friends to decorate.
Zakkai decided he was in charge of flouring the cutting board:) In between cookie batches baking, my little helper and I finished folding last night's laundry and put it away.
We rushed over to the party just after lunchtime and it was a big hit with his pre-k class. There was ornament decorating, pin the nose on Rudolph, decorating (and eating) cookies, a game of "Hot Penguin" (formerly known as Hot Potato), Freeze Dance and a Christmas story. Then they all got a bag of goodies and just like that the party was over.
We moved on to the next countdown of traveling! We had a little over an hour before we had to pick up Samuel so Z, E and I raced home to do some organizing and packing. Well.....I did the organizing and packing, E threw all of her clothes out of her dresser drawers and Z played with his new treasures from his goodie bag:)
I'm checkin' my packing list more than twice and hoping that it all fits in the van! We have a lot of stuff we're bringing/returning to family that's taking up a lot of room. As long as we fit in the car, I think we're okay...
Well, that's it for my lame post. My brain is only firing on a couple of cylinders at the moment. I'm off to catch a few zzzzzz's before it's Go time!
I'll be updating throughout our trip with pics and stories so don't run away....
