Syd's outfit is from Gymboree she wore several outfits during the holiday season that were black/red. Chloe's gingerbread dress was
made from Mamaw Jean

Christmas Play and Gifts at Church

Syd is wearing one of her Christmas dresses. Her mamaw Jean made this one she also made Syd's baby doll a matching dress. The gift shown is the one she received from church.
This is Syd with her friend Millie Napier. They have been going to church together since they were born.
Syd dress as a pink horse in the play. She thought she was a My Little Pony.
Here she is with the other animals.
This was also taken at the Christmas play when we first got ready she was an angel. I went up stairs and took my seat waiting for the play to begin. Next, came up one of the directors and said Syd wants to be a animal is that okay. I said of course. She has been an angel for so many years. I guess she
was ready to be a horse.

Christmas at Granny Lelia's and Papaw Arthur's

Tanner, Granny Lelia and Zack. The first time I took Tanner to Lelia and Arthur's he was nineteen months old. He is now 16. They are two wonderful grandparents to all my kids. They love Tanner the same and he feels the same way about them. I feel with all my heart we can love each other as kin. I know because I love my students so much. When I have been home on snow break thinking of them. I miss them when we don't have school.
Love this photo. I just kept snapping they began laughing
A group shot. What is Zack doing?
Syd and I playing with her new play dough kitchen set
Lelia knows how much I love baskets.

in her Granny's arms.

At the end of our kitchen cabinets I put Syd's preschool crafty items up

Syd's Christmas Tree

Syd's Christmas Tree. I wish I had garland I wanted to add the
new mesh ribbon I just never bought it.
Peace sign I bought this at Michael's or Hobby Lobby they both have wooden shapes. I thought this would make a cute ornament. I hot glued
ribbon for the hanger

Bought the S from Michael's and then glued ribbon for a hanger

Syd and Chloe Playing with Makeup

These photos were taken in Syd's room if you look closely you will notice her makeup. This makeup container was given to Syd from a neighbor. I did use it as an art container now that she is older I changed it to hold her makeup

Look how precious
Look at her necklace. She made this in child care. Thanks Mrs. Lisa
cZack and Syd at his Christmas party. The doll she got from the resource center. She loves it.

This was after the Christmas play Syd got to stay the day with me. We had so much fun this day. She rode on my cart to deliver pizzas, we played with the smart board, watch Hannah Montana concert, and ate pizza in the cafeteria.

Most kids went home early after their Christmas parties so those who stayed had a fun time.

Christmas play at school was beautiful. Mrs. Gayheart worked for at least two months in her art/music class. Zack was part of the choir, and also his third grade class done a special song. Syd was an angel in the part of
the preschool students.
