11/19/2011 Santa & his Reindeer came to Learning Express today for pictures with all the kid's.
We are so proud that Miss Brooke managed to be quite Happy with the Jolly 'ol Elf this year!
A major difference from her reaction last year. The girls were so excited to see him they forgot to run down their list of Christmas wishes! But they will have at least two more meetings with Santa this season. Lindsay's school is having Santa come on Saturday December 10th, and we ALWAYS have breakfast with Santa at our church.

This photo is Mom and Dad's favorite. It might just make the Christmas card this year.

We'll see...

As you see there is no Rudolph leading the sleigh today. We told the girls that Rudolph does not do appearances at this time of year. He has to remain rested so he is good to go on Christmas Eve. We think they bought that story! HA!

Here is a good shot of Santa, his sleigh and another little girl ahead of ours getting ready to visit.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Have a joyous Holiday Season!

Indian Princess Lindsay Lou-Chow11/17/2011

Lindsay came home from school today in her costume for Thanksgiving! 11/17/2011
Sometimes we call her Lindsay Lou but I felt it fitting to call her Lou-Chow because her teacher who spent a lot of time on creating these for her class her name is Ms. Chee-How.

Lindsay has this pose down pat! She likes to pop out that hip and look all sassy!

11/16/2011 Boston Kindergarten Classes Celebrate Thanksgiving 2011

Today we got to go to Lindsay's Thanksgiving play that was put on by her class and two others.
They did such a fabulous job! After the play we went back to her classroom for a feast. Here is one of her Turkey's that she made in class.

We brought Aunt KK and Brooke with us to the play. Brooke was very happy to see her!

On stage there were Turkey's, Indian Men, Indian Women, Corn Cob People, Pilgrim Women, Pilgrim Men and a Minister named Lennon. Yes, Lennon did a great job! :)

My photos are sort of dark here because we were a little to far away.

Here are 3 of our Pilgrim women Emma, Meleigh and Lindsay (L-R)

Ms. Chee-How's girls!

Since there were Tornado warnings this afternoon the play started just a bit late. The students were on lock down in the Hallways prior to the play so it gave us time to set up the camcorder to tape it. I guess in three more years we will do the same Thanksgiving play with Brooke's kindergarten class.

Squanto helped the Pilgrims plant corn. (Lindsay's Turkey Hand Says)

We are at the feast. Our Lindsay is obviously thirsty since she had a 102.7 fever last night. We were really happy her fever broke this morning in time to get her to school on time for the play.

Lindsay is very happy that she sits next to her B.F.F. Meleigh in class now. They get along very well and have since the first day of school.

Brookie and Mommy sitting in class.

Brooke, Lindsay and Daddy.

The Turkey project that Lindsay had to work on over our camping weekend about a month ago. Her Turkey is the third one from the right. We have to give Grandma credit for helping her design it!

Here is the whole proud display in the giant glass case at the end of the Kindergarten Hall.

More great showings of Imagination on the "Turkey Wall".

My 2 favorite girls in Ms. Chee-How's class.

MY 3 favorite girls in my life!

3 great Smiles!!

Congratulations to all the children in grade K today, you all put on an AWESOME PLAY!!
