Avery's School Activities

Avery had several Christmas activities at school this year. On Thursday they had a PE showcase where they performed a choreographed dance they learned.

Thursday afternoon she had her class Christmas party. They played bingo, ate snacks, and opened gifts.

(These are four kids that Avery went to daycare with the last several years with their teacher, Mrs. LaTonya. They are all in the same Kindergarten class.)

On Friday Avery performed in the music program.

I didn't get any pictures because I was videoing the whole time, but here is one of her at the end of the day.

Church Christmas Program

Avery had her first speaking part in our church Christmas program this year. She did so good, and I was very proud of her. She was really nervous before the play so I was surprised she actually did it. Addison did a great job as well. After the program Santa stopped by and brought the kids gift cards to the movies.

Mamaw's Christmas

This year the girls were so excited about Mamaw's Christmas because they know that Santa usually stops by for a visit and to bring the kids gifts. Last year Addison wanted nothing to do with him, but this year she ran toward him as soon as he walked through the door. She had even colored pictures to give to him. Avery was sad because she had to miss the party. She went to the doctor the day before and we found out she had strep throat. Santa was nice enough to call her on the phone and gave us her gift to take to her. She thought is was so cool that he called her. I think that made things a little better. Santa gave each of the kids a gift card to Wal-Mart, and both of the girls chose to get Barbies.

Visit to Aggieland

Right before Thanksgiving Aaron and I made a quick trip to College Station to see one of the most exciting college football games we had ever been to. It was the last home game of the season and Nebraska was playing their last game as a part of the Big XII. We ended up winning 9-6 and will be playing in the Cotton Bowl on January 7th. We had a great weekend, and can't wait to go back next year.

1st 5K

At the end of May my friend Mallory and I decided to start running. In order to keep us motivated we signed up for a 5K on October 2nd. Since I hadn't really run any great distance since high school I would have never guessed that I could actually finish the race much less run the whole thing. My personal goal was to run the whole race and not come in last. We accomplished both of those. I am glad our first race is over but can't wait for our next.
