He likes to sing along with the song, which is so cute. His favorite part is the "Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump, look at that Frosty go." Depending on his mood, I'm either requested to "help me sing Mommy" or "Mommy no help me sing" (presumably if I'm more off-key than normal that day). Occasionally, if I do really well, I get a "good job helping me sing Mommy." Man, I love that kid!
Both of our boys had their holiday parties at school last week. Until now, we've never gotten to attend any of Jack's parties because it seems they inevitably fall on his days off. This year we got lucky and Charlie's party was Monday and Jack's was Friday.
Charlie's party was nice - I got to meet the other parents and babies. He is by far the youngest in the class - there is a 14 month-old who is moving to a toddler classroom soon and the other five babies are 7-9 months old. Charlie made us a plaster hand print ornament, so that was nice.
Jack's party was great too - Jason and I both got to go. It was fun seeing him in his school environment interacting with all his buddies. They had a buffet set up on one of the little tables so the kids were in heaven - food at their level to help themselves to! Luckily, Jack was mostly focused on the blackberries, but he also discovered a new love for the fruit-flavored candy canes. They were all chowing down on those when we got there.
They had a fun activity at their party - they got to decorate cookies. Jack started out doing great and really concentrating on spreading the icing...

Then each kid gave their parents a gift (a cute picture in a handmade frame)
