No matter what I told my son, he put his head back for the pictures. I think he was having a hard time seeing through the mask. They enjoyed trick or treating and showing off their costumes.
These picture are from the school's Appalachian night. The first two are of my daughter and other fourth graders singing some old timey songs. The people dancing are from a local clogging school and they were actually quite good and entertaining. There was a ceramics display, a basketry table (the school's art teacher made that beautiful basket), a homemade dulcimer, and leaf plates that the fourth graders made. I love the history and old timey ways of Appalachia and feel blessed everyday to be able to live in these beautiful mountains.
Here are the beautiful ornaments that I was gifted. A homemade ceramic bird and a mitten with the words "believe". She also sent me a smaller bird with a magnet on the back and a little handwritten note in an envelope with her initial on the outside. I thought the whole package was very thoughtful and if you are reading this, Thanks Nan! I am looking forward to hanging those ornaments on our tree this year.
I also found a new favorite snack...Dark chocolate and sea salt on popcorn, yes please. Hopefully we will be enjoying a lot of this during the holidays. Is everyone else as ready for the holidays to be here as I am? I love this time of year.
Ta ta for now,
