Sam 2nd Grade Holiday Party

Dad brought in fruit kabobs to Sam's class for their holiday party. Mom was teaching that day at Farmwell. Dad stayed and helped the class with their party activities:

1. Writing a card to Baxter at his new home in Albuquerque
2. Writing a get well card to Mrs. Weltens for her surgery
3. Wrapping up Sam like a snow mummy in toilet paper
4. Decorating an ornament and/or making a snowflake
5. Eating cookies and fruit kabobs

The picture above is Sam getting wrapped up by Jake Bonds and Ashley Cavanaugh. You can tell he is a snowman, and not a mummy, by the black scarf.
