HO HO HO {Free Printable} + The Baby’s Party

I sent the PCP to school with a treat for his teacher and a handwritten note recognizing that coming to school and caring for her room full of first graders this week was probably just as hard as it was for us to send him off to school each day. The gift bag was simple, but contained some of her favorite things – a Coca-Cola and a bag of Oreo’s!

The red bag is from WalMart and I printed the label on full page label paper.  These could be cut down if you need something smaller.  To download the FREE printable HO HO HO tag (with and without the Coke and Oreo message), just click here!

Changing gears, the baby’s class held their sweet little holiday party yesterday and dazzled us with all sorts of Christmas songs. As usual, Whit actually sang nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

He did smile sweetly pretty much throughout the show…

…went ahead and laid down when all that smiling evidently exhausted him…

…and finally joined in with the class as they wrapped up the show with Rockin Around the Christmas Tree!  (He almost successfully completely hides himself behind the little one in the red vest the entire time.)
He was terribly proud of his performance afterwards :-)

How his teachers finagle shows like this with a crew full of three and four year olds is “one secret I’ll never know”! (To steal a phrase from the infamous and sorely missed Gossip Girl.)

  1. Well, Cookie was just too cutesmiling his big smile. And not doubt all that cuteness just plum wore him out! And he really was dancing!

  7. I remember these days with my son in holiday concerts, however, he was the loudest in the crowd, not shy by far.

    Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
