Owen had a busy and fun filled week before Christmas. He has such a great group of Pre K friends who invited us to participate in an array of holiday activities! On Wednesday we decorated gingerbread houses at Hartley's house. Her sweet mama April did was such a creative hostess! I'm pretty sure Owen enjoyed eating frosting out of the tub more than decorating!
On Thursday evening JK's family organized a Christmas caroling hayride. We visited a Huntsville nursing facility and enjoyed bring some cheer to those residents.
On Friday their class performed in the annual Discovery Days Christmas pageant. Owen was so excited and counted down the weeks until the big day. They sang "Away in a Manger" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas". Owen was the cutest shepherd ever and the Pre K kids did such a wonderful job! I forgot to bring Kleenex along but did a good job of holding in the mama tears. I'm already getting sad that his Pre K year is half way done and next year this sweet group of kids will have to part ways for Kindergarten....

We were so thankful that Lita made the quick trip to watch the program and to be at the kids' class parties. Owen specifically asked her to come and to "dress nice"!
