2013 Christmas Ornaments!

This year we did something totally different.  Instead of going to the store and purchasing our yearly ornament...we painted our own. We sat around the kitchen table, listened to Christmas music, and painted our sweet little ornaments.  

Here are our little masterpieces.....
Now before you scroll down can you guess who did what???

Merry Christmas to all 
and to all a good night!

The Lord is Good to Me!

My shorty went on his first field trip to the apple orchard with his kindergarten class.  It was great fun and a wonderful learning experience.  It also was a great photo taking opportunity.  I cannot resist taking a bazillion pictures at places like this!!!!
Johnny Appleseed

Oh, the Lord is good to me,
And so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need:
The sun, and the rain, and the apple seed;
The Lord is good to me.

For every seed I sow,
An apple tree will grow,
And there will be apples there
Enough for the whole wide world to share;
The Lord is good to me.
Here they are putting their apples into the giant juicer.  
Thump went the apples!

They had a really great play area!
This is one of my favorites...pure joy running through that tunnel!
Okay and this is just too much!
Love this Kindergarten to the moon and back!!!!
