Thanks for the well wishes for D3. He had a wonderful birthday. We picked him up from school, he changed clothes and we headed to see Bolt.

It was such a cute movie. The movie was in 3-D, which was really cool. This was B’s first movie, which frankly made me very nervous. He did awesome, though! We got him and D3 a kiddy combo of popcorn, fruit snacks and a drink. B chowed almost the entire movie (it was also his first popcorn experience). He would ask “K?” occasionally if he was worried about something that happened in the movie. When we left he said “Bye Bolt” and waved the entire way to the car. It turned out to be a really great experience.

We gave D3 a choice of anywhere to go eat and he chose Burger King. He and B played and ate a little bit (they were stuffed with popcorn, still!). We headed home for the rest of presents and for cupcakes.

After the kids went to bed, I finished up sugar cookies for D3’s class Christmas party and for teacher gifts.

I forgot to take a pic of the cute Christmas kitchen towels I got for B’s teachers, but I gave them each a towel and a little baggie of these cookies.

I also put together D3’s teacher’s gift basket. I was actually proud of this basket, I’m not always creative with my gifts. I ordered 3 different versions of The Gingerbread Man story from Scholastic Book Clubs. My mom is an elementary teacher, so I was able to order through her. It’s a really great way to get your kids great books at a great price. So, I had the three Gingerbread Man books (Gingerbread Baby is my favorite- so cute) and I got a box of Gingerbread mix with a cookie cutter. Hopefully she liked the gift. As a teacher, I would love getting books.

This weekend we get to spend time with Dan‘s parents and on Sunday it’s the children’s Christmas pageant (which should be interesting. J)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. Great idea with the basket! We do the scholastic book club as well and LOVE it! I got some GREAT Thanksgiving books (really hard to find) from them. Glad D3 had a great birthday. We’re making cookies tomorrow. Can’t wait to hear about the Christmas pageant!
