What I Love Most About Drake-December

Special Days:  Visiting Santa Clause, making tree ornaments, Polar Express night, Christmas Play "Dude, You Hear What I Hear?", reading to you.

Favorite Stories: You are very excited that you are 6 years old and because of that you think you are simply unstoppable in so many ways. You feel you can cut the Christmas tree down, climb up on the ladder to hang lights, be outside by yourself...all because you are 6. You are growing up so fast on me.

Greatest Quotes:  " When I grow up, I am going to be fat like a hobo!"

What has impressed me most about you this month: You are growning up to your mistakes, You still pass the buck, but at least at times you admit when you lied, did something bad etc. You are also getting better at conrolling your temper and your prayeres are becoming deeper and more meaningful to you persoanlly.

Bible Verse: 

"Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;"

James 1:19 ESV

Where I hope to see you grow: Your attitude when you speak to others can be very unpleasant. You need to work on your empathy skills baby. You liek to make fun of others when they are hurt or in trouble. You will go love on them aski if htey are ok then you laugh. Its troubling at times. Sometimes you are doing it to make them feel better, or trying too,sometimes I am not so sure.  You also are getting too lippy for me. You started backtalking and being defiant.

My Absolute 3 Favorite Thing We Did

  1. Dude, You Hear What I Hear?: This was our church play and you got to be in the choir! You song your heart out and everyone could hear you and said you did a fabulous job! You knew all the words and motions. Adorable. you even learned alot of the other parts as well, just listening to us practice.
2. Early Christmas: You were so psyched that you got Wrestling Ladder Matches from your brother, I spy gear from sister and a baseball pitching machine from momma. You loved your gifts and played with them all immediately.
3. Christmas Lights/Santa Photos: We went several places looking at light this year. We went out to Interlochen in Arlington-which was proably your favorite, to Kristen Kindle in Arlington for a German celebration, we drove around Mesquite like we do every year as well. You loved the Mickey Mouse lights, the manger sceneces, and really disliked the grinch lights. You adored lights that were purple, greene and blue the best it seemed. Althought you do not believe in Santa Clause and you know the true story of St. Nick, you still love having your picture taking with other Santa's/ So this year we stood in line for 3, yes 3 hours to take your pic with Santa at Bass Pro Shop. Luckily you kids could run around and color, do ornaments and the like, but i had to wait. The picture was lovely though and you were happy.
