School Christmas Appreciation Gifts

Here Abi and Nate are helping me make the Melted Snowman Cookies for the gifts. We added Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix and a little note that said "Oh no! The Hot chocolate melted your snowman!"

It was fun to make and we hope everyone enjoys a little treat! Merry Christmas from the Schlatters!

Christmas is here!

I think I finally have all my decorations done for this year! 

Here are all our Christmas trees. 

And here is our snowman display:

We've actually added a few more since this picture and we put all the snowman ornaments on too!

I don't have a picture of the lights out front but maybe I'll get those taken yet!  Now I'm working on Christmas Program Videos from the school and practices for the church!

School Christmas Programs 2014

I'm going to try to post each of the kids' school program videos in one post.  They will all be YouTube videos so hopefully you will be able to watch them all in one post.  I will warn you, some of them are long.  I recorded the whole thing to the best of my capabilities with only a few blimps excluded due to technical difficulties,  So, feel free to skip through if you want or enjoy the whole thing.

We will start with Jonny's part of the program on December 1st.  His class had a few individual parts before the 'skit' with the 3rd Graders.

Next is the joint skit of K-3.  This is where Nathan had a speaking part.

Next is Abigail's vocal program on the 4th.  Her class, like Jonny's, had a few individual songs, and then the whole 4-6 joint skit.  I think I put all of them into one video so this one is really 40 minutes!

Finally we have Abi's band concert.  This was the entire school band program, but in this one I only kept the portions with Abi's participation.

I hope you enjoy all the videos.  Due to the length of time it takes to upload and create the videos you'll need to come back and check for the various links.  But I wanted to at least get the base post up and going.

Girl Time

Abi and I were invited to attend a Secret Keeper Girl Conference in Kearney. We were able to go with our friends the Halls and the Rorhchilds.

The theme was crazy hair and we had no idea how crazy it would be. Girls had everything from balloons to lights to chenille sticks in their hair! The set was very cool too:

They played games, sang songs, had a fashion show and told a story about a peacock raised with the chickens. 

It was very fun!

Of course they also talked about modesty and how being 'normal' is overrated. Here is a pic of the girls afterward. 

Abi and I stayed over night and continued our girls night out the next day with bowling and getting our nails done. We were excited to have cousin Kim and Aunt Roxanne join us! (Sorry I failed to get pics as my phone battery gave out. ��)
