Christmas Program

Claire's Christmas program at Crosshill Christian School was earlier this week. All the kiddos worked really hard and did an amazing job. We had older our students (who all had lines in the play) out with the stomach flu so it was a bit of a last minute scramble to get their lines memorized but it all worked out. Below is two links to YouTube to see a video (not taken by me) of the play. Claire can be seen as one of the peasants at approx minute 15 or watch the whole thing and enjoy!

I didn't get any pictures of Claire that night but here are a few the next day at home showing off her apron that I made for her peasant outfit. It was a larger under taking than I anticipated but it all worked out.

Tree hunt

We did our annual Christmas Tree hunt a little early this year. Claire was going to be at Grandma's house but we didn't want her to miss out on the fun. I found a groupon for $10 noble fir tree in South Salem. It isn't as manicured as we normally get, but I trimmed it right up and it looks great. Not to mention this has got be the smallest tree we have gotten in probably 10 years! The girls did great and the weather wasn't too bad just cold and muddy. Oh and Tucker came too :)

New Carpet!

We FINALLY have new carpet! I have waited for this since before we moved in. The downstairs looks great. Fresh coat of white paint on the ceiling and soft plush carpet on the floors. Now on to the upstairs!
