Kate's Preschool Christmas Program

Yesterday was Kate's preschool Christmas program & Christmas party.
I took the day off work so that I could be a part of it!

Kate was so excited to wear a fancy dress to preschool!
We gave each one of her teachers a jar of our Homemade Strawberry Jam.
I created these cute sticker labels to stick on the jam jars:
But, because you need to store this jam in the fridge or freezer, the sticker labels wouldn't stick (Fail!) So, luckily I had cardstock on hand, & just stuck the labels on either side of the cardstock.
I thought they turned out cute:
The Christmas Program was held in the Sanctuary with all of the 3 year old classes.
Here is Kate proceeding down the isle. She was SO excited to see us.
(She wore last year's Christmas dress! Glad it still fits!)
All of the kids sat up on the stage at once. It was so cute.
This picture cracks me up...Before the performance began, all of the mom (including me) ran up to take pictures of all the kids. It was the Mamarazzi at it's finest.
Can you see Kate? She is in the middle of the top row:
The performance consisted of the kids singing us several songs including the ABC's, "Jingle Bells", "1, 2, 3 , Jesus Loves Me" & "We wish you a Merry Christmas".
In between one of the songs, Kate shouted out "Hi Mommy!" I couldn't believe it because there were over 100 people there & she is usually shy!
Here is Kate with her 2 buddies, Maddie & Nicole walking back down the aisle. Kate had a smile on her face the entire time. I was so proud of her. She LOVED it. After the performance, she told me, "I LOVE being on stage!"
After all the songs, the kids walked back to their classrooms and we met them there for the Christmas Party.
After cookies & punch, the teachers gave each child an ornament for their Christmas tree.
Then, the teachers called up each child to get the present they made for us.
They even made the wrapping paper. We let Kate open the present for us.
She made us a plate! Kate says it is a picture of herself.
She was so proud!
Kate & Nicole (who was being silly & making funny faces)
Maddie, Kate & Nicole.
Love these girls & love their moms!
After the Christmas party, Kate and I did some Christmas shopping (just the 2 of us) & then we went to get lunch...Pink Bagels, of course.
It was such a fun day and I loved having special 1 on 1 time with Kate!
