We started with snack at the kitchen table.
Then she had everyone sit in the dining room on the floor. She had all these shiny sparkly trees around the room but all the kids just figured it was part of June's decorations....that is until she said that everyone was going to get to take a tree home this year!!!!!!!!! YUP, everyone got to pick a tree!!!! The big girls were SO excited and the little ones squeeled- how fun!
They drew numbers and each got to pick their own tree and everyone got the one they wanted!
Then into the living room where she went around and around and around the room and let the kids pick special decorations for their tree....garland, ribbons...
string, ornaments, and more....the special treat was that she MADE dozens of little glass ornaments with paint inside that were stunning. Each child got to bring home FIVE to decorate their tree.
And if the trees and the decorations weren't enough, she got each child a small gift too...the biggest girls got necklaces...the medium girls got bracelets, and the little ones got puzzles. Everyone was excited.
