Deck the Halls and Party at the School House

Benji got his wish today, they went back to school. It was almost silly with it being a half day and all, but it was Party day before Christmas Break.

Benji and his Best Friend at the Christmas party
It was a quaint little non-eventful party. (Which I suppose is the best kind when you have a room full of 5 and 6 year olds.) There was food, cookies, sausage balls, more cookies, red jello, grapes, and pigs in a blanket. There was red koolaid, chocolate milk, and orange juice. (I was so very glad we brought the grapes and some of Benji's snack juices.)

After the eating was present time. For the gift exchange the kids were asked to bring in a book. Benji brought in Super Friends: Flying High (DC Super Friends) and also Brain Freeze! (DC Super Friends). They are Step in To Reading Books that encourage children to read. Benji loves them because he loves super heroes. When they exchanged presents, Benji got the book Let It Snow which is a very cute and colorful book about a snow day. Benji's teacher gave him the book Penguins, Penguins, Everywhere!

After the gift exchange there was a short movie Raggedy Ann & Andy Great Santa Caper. It was cute and even held the kids attention for a little while. But then it was time to go.

And go we did. There were a few things that happened and where said that I am mulling over right now. That will be another post some other day. :)
