December Updates!

Am I the only one who can't believe Christmas is less than a week away?! We have been enjoying the season and preparing our hearts for the big day.  So today I am sharing some of the fun things I have been doing with my family. Keep reading- you might find some inspiration for your crew!

Christmas Tree made out of fruit! Created for our PTA Breakfast by my friend Alli.


Our school hosted the annual Breakfast with Santa. These ladies are so fun to volunteer with.



Our school's Breakfast with Santa was held in the cafeteria. For $5 a person (max of $15 per family) everyone enjoyed breakfast - CFA chicken biscuits, breakfast tacos, pastries, fruit and donuts. Everyone got a free photo souvenir with Santa, enjoyed crafts, and did a little shopping at our Holiday House.


Look how cute the Santa photos turned out! This event is way more fun that a visit to an expensive mall Santa!


My youngest performed in her ballet school's Nutcracker. It was a beautiful performance. We feel so fortunate that she gets the experience of performing in a ballet alongside professional dancers.




Back in the fall, our school had a fundraising challenge-- if we met the set goal, our principal would kiss a pig! Well it happened. She had to pucker up to this pig. My dad (who plays Santa in December at various city events) came to cheer her on. It was a fun morning for the kiddos! If you want to raise money at your school, consider the pig idea! 




I co-hosted a 'cookie bar' for the middle school staff during exam week. I can't even tell you how appreciative middle school teachers are when it comes to special treats. I feel like we always do a great job taking care of preschool/elementary school teachers... but don't forget your upper level teachers. They deserve a little TLC too!


My letterboard came in handy again! And I used wrapping paper from Hobby Lobby for the table runners. 


Finally, I put together a "Polar Express Night" for my girls at home. We got matching pjs, made cookies, drank hot cocoa, had a dance party, and of course watched the Polar Express Movie.  Their favorite part were these printable tickets. The loved punching holes in them, just like in the movie. You can print the tickets for free here- just use yellow or golden rod paper.



Pjs are from Target! They have had so many great sales on PJs this month. 
 What have you been up to,  in preparation for Christmas?
