somebody stop me

I lucked out yesterday... Skyler's Kindergarten class went on a field trip late enough in the afternoon that I could go as the chaperone. Working moms never get to do that!

Her class went down the street to sing songs at a senior citizen home, dressed as elves, of course!

We rode a bus because it was zero degrees. no degrees. none.

They did their little show,

and while they were mingling with the old folks, I realized I could take everyone's photo and Skyler could give them out as Christmas presents! Here are some of my favorites:

We zipped over to Target to print them, and then later that night, we assembled the rest of the little packages.

Skyler and I made these reindeer cookies:

And then we made little packages for everyone
- a group photo of the class and everyone got their own elf portrait
- one of skyler's handmade salt-dough ornaments

- and a reindeer cookie tucked behind.

All packed up and ready to go! Skyler couldn't go to sleep because she was so excited to deliver the goods.

I hope I still have enough energy to do this for Reed someday too. I'm tired.

How is it that you pull this all off? Seriously???

I LOVE the picture of Skyler as the elf with the sun on her face. She looks like a mini-Emilie.

Boy, what a big heart your girl does have. Must get it from her folks...
