A Preppy Christmas Thought Just for YOU!

Today was the last day of school before the Holidays.  Hooray!

Yesterday was Polar Express day where we all donned our best flannel pj's, drank hot chocolate with marshmallows, and watched the (new) holiday classic.  What fun!  Today was the all-school sing-a-long which was just as crazy as you could imagine with a million children all dressed in red and green, singing holiday songs at the top of their lungs.

Today was also our class party.   Before the feeding frenzy, we made painted glass ornaments.  I do this every year and the kids love it.  The parents love it too, because the finished product is actually très beautiful.  The children swirled two different colors of paint inside the ornament and went to town!  We had Christmas music going. and they started dancing around the room shaking their ornaments to get the paint all over the inside!  What fun!

Of course I had to make one to show them the steps.
And... sweet, cute friends,
when I chose the colors,
I thought of YOU!
Pink and Lime Green!
Isn't is too cute?!?!

Preppy Blessings...
