This past week has been full of all things Chistmas. We’ve had youth Christmas events, school and church events, and parties with friends. The picture below is Nathan and I after our Wednesday night youth party.
I also got a picture with one of my favorite youth girls, Jessica!
In the mail, I got a gift from Faith of some adorable workout gear! She knows me so well. How cute are these workout capris and it was a bit chilly to wear only the tank top, but it’s super cute too! Thanks Faith ❤
Friday in First grade was full of fun, crafts, music, and goodies! We had our class party in the morning and my classroom commander planned a whole party complete with a waffle bar for the kids to enjoy after they visited each center in the classroom. We also did a Penny Christmas where each child gets a stocking and all the kids bring in a small item to put in eachothers stocking. by the end of it, the stockings were bulging and the kids had so much fun looking at all their new treasures. It made my heart so happy to see. ❤
To kick off Christmas break right, Nathan and I made plans to go downtown for dinner and to see the Nutcracker! I got all dressed up and everything. 😉
For his entree, Nathan ordered the 20Nine burger with a cheddar stuffed patty, carmelized onions, sweet house pickles, lemon chive aioli, and hand cut fries. I ordered the Petite filet served over mashed potatoes and carmelized pears and carrots. Both dishes were delicious and we left satisfied and ready to see the Nutcracker!
We arrived to the Lila Cockrell Theater which was right above the beautful River Walk which was light up with beautiful lights draped throughout all the trees and shops lining the water. It was a gorgeous sight, it really felt like Christmas.
Once we went inside, we looked around at the nutcracker displays before finding our seats.
During intermission, we went out to the lobby and stretched our legs before the rest of the ballet resumed. He’s sooo handsome! #lucky
We then decided to look at some of the lights on the river in before making the journey back to our car.
We had such a great time at the Nutcracker! If you’ve never seen that ballet I highly recommend going, it is a beautiful thing to see.
Well Nathan and I are watching some football right now. Later I’m going to go running and then we’re going to go play tennis with some friends, since it’s not a school night tonight I can be a party animal haha! We are headed home for the holidays pretty soon and this week will be full of cleaning, packing, shopping, and getting together with friends!
Have a blessed day!
