Cutest reindeer ever, says mom.

Luckily Drew got over his cold in time to attend his preschool holiday party. We sang Spanish songs with Miss Debbie Jo, ate cookies and milk by the tree, and heard a story from Santa!
Mommy was not feeling well but the tree is ready to be decorated! Luckily I have two little helpers who were more than happy to do the work. No matter how big the canvas though, their ornaments always landed on the same three branches. Not to worry, I've got tons more to hang tomorrow and fill the gap.
Today Evan celebrated his First Communion with his friends Caden & Kayla! They've been reading and learning for a couple of weeks with Pastor Lauren and were excited to participate this morning. During their lessons, they talked about special meals, read about Passover, remembered their baptisms, and made the bread we used for today's service! They also practiced taking communion so they wouldn't be nervous, including tasting the wine! (Result: "Eew!")
What a special day!
We channeled our inner Southeastern Wisconsinites and went bowling today with friends. It's not cheap, but it sure is fun! After a couple frames, the big kids decided they were pro enough to scrap the ramp and bowl like adults-- but kept the bumpers of course. Mommy got a strike and won the adult lane, and Evan rocked for the kids!
