|The matching Christmas PJ's have arrived! This may be my favourite new holiday tradition.|
Cale recently brought home his wonderful first ever report card, and I had a great meeting with his teacher in my first ever parent-teacher interview. (It was a real 'I am officially an adult' moment for me!) His teacher confirmed everything I already knew - he is bright, thoughtful, polite, keen, kind and loves to play by the rules, of course! His teacher even used the word 'spectacular' when describing him and said she wished she could clone him! He is now diligently practicing for his upcoming Christmas concert which I can't wait to attend and take videos of to share with everyone.
Right now at home we are all wrapped up in Christmas spirit! It is so much fun (and so easy) to create magic in the house at this time of year for a 5 year old. Alan and I put the gifts under the tree last night and when Caleb woke up, he spent 20 minutes oohing and awwing over every package. We have also started up our advent calendar again and I've added in a few new fun activities for us this year. The 'Build an Elf Village' day was a huge success. I left out a bag of mini marshmallows and a box of toothpicks and let Caleb's imagination run wild. He loved it. Today, Caleb is home sick and his activity is to write a Christmas song with his dad. Next week I'm going to let Caleb do some grocery shopping for the local food bank, bake some holiday treats to share with neighbours, take the boys to have Breakfast with Santa at the legion and build a gingerbread house. So much to look forward to!
