The Polar Express PJ Party

Today was the last day of school before the Christmas Break! YIPEE!! We are ready for a few mornings of sleeping in & hanging out in our PJ's all day (or at least Mommy is!!!!) To kick off the break, Cheney's kindergarten class had a Polar Express Party. Everyone was supposed to wear their pj's to school!! Cheney thought it was great because he could sleep a little later-he didn't have to get dressed!! Unfortuately, I made him change PJ's into some CUTER ones-oh well!! During the morning, they watched Polar Express & drank hot chocolate. After lunch, they had Christmas themed centers. Because we were done giving exams, I got to go help! It was fun, but a little overwhelming! I definitely think that Mrs. Helms has a gift if she is willing to teach 22 5 year olds!! WOW!! But it was great & I enjoyed meeting some of the kids that Cheney is talking about. When it was time to go, I got many hugs from his classmates-they really are a sweet bunch of kids!!

Drinking his BIG RED Float-YUMMY!!

Billy looks really excited-he was not too happy that I roped him into coming to help!

Showing off his reindeer sandwich-this is the center that I worked with. Cheney took advantage of his Mommy being there & ate all the leftover cherries!!

They also made reindeer food to leave outside on Christmas Eve!!

Thanks for letting me come help Cheney!!

Cheney, how fortunate you are that you get to have your parents help out at your school! You better thank them for all of the "extra" things they do for you.

Yeah for having BOTH parents come to school to help. What a great set of parents you have, Cheney.
Love, MeMe
