Here I am mixing all the ingredients. The kids were excited to help with the cutting of the gingerbread men.
Jr. was most excited with the finished product. These were the chocolate chip coconut cookies. These were Jr's favorite. I'll have to say they were mine too.

This was the kids songfest. There are a bunch of pictures and clips for dad in Iraq. The kids did We Wish you A Merry Christmas while the sixth grade played the Ukulele. That was pretty neat. Darrian bought his teachers Christmas present home and said she didn't want it. When I told him I was going to call her he told me not too. It seems he wanted her gift. Oh well it was better then telling me the other day that I couldn't bring tacquitos to the Christmas party because Miss Ikeno says you can only bring cake. Oh and pizza. But that's it.

Today was the kids winter songfest. It is always a huge success. I have posted a bunch of videos for dad to see in Iraq. The Kindergarten was awesome doing Pickles and Tannanbaum and the other kids did a great job. I always like their Christmas songfest because they never use traditional songs.

Here is a little clip of Darrian and his friends at the park. I don't know what they were doing, but it looks like they have a plan.

For the Christmas songfest at the kids school next week the kindergartener's are performing a song called "Pickles and Tannenbaum." I am assuming this will be one of the funny songs. Usually the 4th grade does the Mexican hat dance and that one is always really good. Anyway whoever heard of pickles and Tannenbaum.

Yesterday we went to the Christmas fun fest on post. It was a fun time. The kids do it every year. The older one's were running around with their friends so I only took the little one around. Later on the older one's went to the beach. (Only in Hawaii).

Did anyone hear the price it would cost to purchase all the items in the 12 days of Christmas in 2008? Apparently $86,609. So unless your true love is a millionaire you probably won't be getting a partridge in a pear tree. Who wants a partridge anyway.
Made some blueberry muffins and had some with tea on Rae Dunn pottery of course
