Christmas....A bit late :(

WOW!! I am really really behind in this blog. Please forgive me, I have taken to enjoying life when not busy with work. The holidays were busy..but lots of fun.

The weekend before christmas we made cookies for Santa and decorated. Christmas morning was great too. Hailey loved everything that Santa got her!

our cookies

The cookies and milk waiting under the tree for Santa. About a week before Christmas Santa left a present which was a special key for Hailey to leave outside so Santa could get into the house since we do not have a chimney.

The tree and all the gifts
Opening up some of her gifts....she really wanted this strawberry shortcake rc car
and this pop the pig game too

A few days after Christmas Poppy G, Mom Mom Terry and Uncle Drew guy came down to visit for a few days. We had a great time visiting with them and Hailey really enjoyed spending time with them here in her own house.

Santa Pics

Hailey with Santa at Moody Gardens Festival of Lights. She really liked him.

Hailey's christmas program pictures

Here are some still pics from the christmas program. This is the 2 classes of preschool 3's performing. That is a lot of 3/4 yr olds!!

Ok, background on the next few pics. At the end after the pre k kids did their songs all the kids sang we wish you a merry christmas. (I did not realize that it was not on video..sorry :( ) Well, Hailey stood where she thought she was in front, then more kids came and stood in front of her. The next few shots show her making her way/pushing/elbowing her way to the front of the crowd of kids. At least it was her friend Skyler and she did not seem to get real upset with Hailey.
making her way a little more to the front
She is up there....everyone is still smiling!

After the show Sant was waiting in the open area outside the auditorium and I think she was the first one out. We missed seeing her on his lap, Miss Amber said that she got a good picture of her on his lap though. She was enjoying her cookies and juice after the show here.

Here is the list of songs that they performed.

Videos from Hailey's Christmas Program

Hailey and the rest of the preschool 3's classes singing Christmas Day. Sorry the sound is not too great. (words below)

Christmas day will soon be here and I can hardly wait! Christmas day will soon be here and I can hardly wait! Santa will be coming , soon he will be coming, Christmas day will soon be here and I can hardly wait!

Here they are singing "ring ring ring the bells" (words below)

Ring, ring, ring the bells, Ring them lound and clear, To tell the children everywhere that Christmas time is here.

Here they are singing Jingle Bells....I think everyone knows the words to that one!

Here is the class doing rudolph the red nosed reindeer with their masks that they made.

Sorry that this one is sideways...its the 2nd half of rudolph that got cut off.

I did not get this one on video. Its hard to hear but the hand motions are adorable (below is what she is saying)

When Santa comes down the chimney(sweeps her hands) I should like to peek(hands over eyebrows). But he'll never come, No never, (shaking finger back and forth) Until I'm fast asleep.(puts head on hands and closes her eyes).

Festival of Lights at Moody Gardens

This past saturday we went to Moody Gardens Festival of Lights. Its all about the holidays and lots and lots and lots of lights. They had Santa pictures too. It was a really nice time. We dressed Hailey in her Holiday outfit. A cold front had come in so it was rather cold for us. I got out mine and Hailey's winter coats, made sure Hailey had a had and mittens, and I had gloves. Glenne for some reason did think the weather reports were right and wore shorts, sandals and a windbreaker jacket. He regreted that decision.

Hailey with Santa. We had 2 other options, but the big hug was the best of the bunch.
Our Christmas card picture...for some reason it seems blurry int he print outs. sorry :(
In front of the tree of Pointsettia's

Lights by the ice rink.....Hailey was so excited to see the ice skaters and wanted to skate. I have only done it once for 2 min....and Daddy was just not ready to get out on the ice with himself and his child...not enough confidence. I am just scared to get out there.
