Jackson's school activities

I can not say enough how much I LOVE Jackson's school!  I like that it's a Christian environment so they have REAL Christmas activities and programs.  The kids are so excited this time of year and I like that even at school Jackson is reminded that Christmas is about Christ.

Jackson had his first Christmas program.  It was the story of Christ's birth.  SO SO SO cute!!  I get so emotional when I think about how much Jackson has grown up already.  Just being at a school for a program for him made me tear up while I waited anxiously to see him.  Then I saw him walk out in his little angel outfit and I cried uncontrollably.  In fact, I'm tearing up again just thinking about it.  What is wrong with me?!?!  Jackson did perfectly!  He was loud and irreverent.   He wouldn't keep his little angel halo on and loudly told his teacher that he no longer needed it right in the middle of the program.  He picked his nose (which, honestly, he doesn't even do at home- I guess that's for special public occasions only).  He loudly told the music teacher that he wanted to go sit with his mommy and daddy (several times).  And he yelled sang so loudly that I could hear him above all the other children.  But my most favorite part was when he first took his place on the stage and then started frantically looking for Jim and me.  You could see excitement and relief on his face when he finally saw us.  I was so proud of my beautiful boy even with the nose picking and acts of irreverence.  Oh, how I love my real life angel!

Today was Jackson's first school Christmas party.  He had a lot of fun and made a cute snowman and ate really good food.  He was so excited!

Well, since it's Christmas and Jackson now has a teacher we got to make his teacher an ornament for a gift.  Jackson painted the letter "K" (for Mrs. Kennedy) gold all by himself.  I might have done a little touching up, but he pretty much painted it by himself.  The ornament turned out so cute I made an "N" for our tree.  I think this might be the start of a Christmas tradition- the boys will make their teachers ornaments.  You can never have too many ornaments.

He was so proud of himself.

Here's the final product.  I told you it was cute!  We have run out of Christmas cards so I made Mrs. Kennedy a card.
