We had a little get-together tonight to celebrate Christmas with our preschool friends. It was fun celebrating together with our entire families. One of the girls put together a DVD slideshow with pictures of the kids at preschool over the last year. It was really fun to look back on how much they've changed and remembering the different activities we've done. The kids got a kick out of seeing themselves on screen too.
We hosted and I wanted to keep it low-key since it was a busy weekend. We decided on Mexican food. What's easier than that? I provided the meat and fixin's, and the other girls brought homemade beans, homemade Mexican rice, sauteed veggies, and dessert. I love easy dinner parties like that. And I always make way more than we need because I figure I'd rather relax the night after and eat leftovers than fix another big meal after such a busy night. Isn't that one of the bonuses of hosting? You get the leftovers. :)
The kids decorated cupcakes for dessert and we sang Happy Birthday to Jesus. We are so blessed by our preschool co-op and look forward to another great year.
