Alex with his remote controlled truck.
Chelsea looking happy with her fuzzy socks.
Alex got a guitar: he's been wanting. Chelsea with her tube socks she wanted. You can't find the ones with colored stripes just anywhere around here, Just one shoe store at the mall has them.
Alex & Chelsea in front of our tree after all the presents were opened.
I walked in with my camera & Mom decided to pose, so I snapped her picture.
Lisa, Jessica & Michael in line for food, Alex and Lisa at the dinner table eating, Alex with a look as if saying enough with the pictures.
Chelsea & Vanessa getting food. Vanessa with a big spoonful of mashed potatoes, she ate it all and came back for more.
Alex & Chelsea playing operation, when Alex tried to operate it buzzed he jumped and didn't want to try again at first.
Ashley came over and spent a big part of the day with us.

This little baby is my cousin Danny and his wife lindas baby Nathaniel. According to the pictures the one with the hat was taken at the beginning of the month and the other just last week, you can sure tell he has grown in just a couple weeks. It sure is great to see him grow, It will be real great when they can take him home from the hospital.
These 2 children belong to my cousin Joeyleigh, There's Dalton and Skye. She sure is growing up, she looks as if she may be a little bossy pants.

Thursday his class had a little Christmas party, they didn't have much time to party. They had alot of snacks and the teacher put on music but just a handful danced, Alex refused to.
Wednesday was Christmas hat day, the children who wore a hat got their names put into a box and some were chosen to get a gift, Alex got a joke book, he found one joke in that book and has teased my mother with that joke that whole day.
It goes like this: Did your mother ever lift weights?
answer: Then how did she raise a dumbell like you.
Notice his funny looking hat, I wasn't in the mood to go through the attic and look for my santa hat, so I made one. The burg. was felt from Chelseas grad party, I put to pieces together hand stitched then hot glued the batting on, and he had a hat good enough for the day. That's all I could come up with the last minute without having to go to the store.

He really got into the song and all the motions she had them do, he was having a good time.
This part is where their surprised when they opened up their eyes. They also point at the teacher on the part where the teacher tells that a hippo is a vegetarian. All the kids did good they learned the song word for word and they sung loud and they all looked like they were having fun.

Alex and I went out saturday afternoon and bought a Christmas tree. This was the first year that I bought it, Alex was anxious to get a tree. There was no need to wait any longer, so we went out and he picked out the tree himself. I put it up my self, with no help I just love my tree stand; the inside tilts so when my tree wasn't straight I tilted it until it was. Once I got the lights on he put the figures on the tree himself, until I noticed they were all eye level for a child. So I helped him out and added the figures to the top. ( he did good though)

Today a students father came to the school and did an Indian hoop dance for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd grades. His son was in Alexs' class last year and I got to know him and his wife. He's from the Navajo Tribe, he's a very talented man and both of them are very friendly. Last year he was at one of the class parties, and instead of the children up dancing and playing around, they set quietly in the back with him while he told them a story and folded paper ( which turned out to be an eagle). He also dances in the Indian Pow Wows around town.
After he danced to a couple Indian songs, he let some children come on stage and he put the hoops around them. I'm surprised Alex went up, he was made into a butterfly.

They had Karoke in the hallway so as the classes came through they stopped and listened and joined in for awhile. Here the boys are rocking back & forths and singing with the music.
Bridgepointe made up a little bag of goodies for each of the children, each class varied depending on the age group.
Since I had my camera with me, I took a picture of each child with Santa.

I guess you didn't know I had a twin sister.
It's so funny all the kids at school will call me by her name or her by my name. They insist that we look alike. When her sister got laid off she told the kids it was because she was bad to the kids. All the kids pointed at me and said I told them, but the truth came out and everyone got a laugh out of it. I told her she had better do the right things because I don't want to get blamed for her bad mistakes (I'm always good so she don't have to worry).ha ha

We had an excellent dinner, Johns' mom baked a turkey and Johns brother deep fried a turkey. We had stuffing, baked mac & cheese, green beans, sweet potatoes, deviled eggs, cranberries, baked beans & rolls. Then we had quite a few deserts.
This is Alex in my jacket, we left home and he walks out of the house without a jacket, and of course we can't keep him inside. Chelsea says he looks like an orphan.
I got a family picture of the four of us.
Alex & David went and set by the lake after dinner.
After dinner we went down to the lake and Johns' brother started a bombfire. Chelsea & Alyson are lighting their torches. Alex looks like he's roasting a marshmallow, but it's just a newspaper.
