I made cookies yesterday afternoon during nap time and planned on letting Jack decorate them today. Last night before our Growth Community came over Freddy T. suggested that we all decorate them together, so we did. As it turned out it saved me from an extremely stressful project with Jack today. After seeing him in action last night I can't imagine what it would have been like today having to monitor him and keep up with Lillie and Elliott as well. So big props to Freddy T. and his idea last night. It was a fun Christmas thing to do with our friends.
By the way, Jack LOVES our Growth Community. Reyn and Jamey have been a part of ours for a year now. Julie and Alinne joined this semester, but he loves them coming over each week. We have a silly thing we do before we put Jack to bed each night. Either Freddy T. or I carry Jack and the other has to act like a robot and follow Jack to bed. If you've been here for bedtime you know what I'm talking about. The funny thing is Jack expects anyone who is here at bed time to be a robot, so typically every Wednesday night he has 3-4 robots following him to bed. He says "robots! line up behind mommy!" All that to say, our Growth Community has been wonderful and special to all of us.
Jack is telling you what we're doing in this video, but I don't think he really wanted to be on camera!
At first everyone was watching Jack, but they eventually jumped in and decorated their own.
Freddy T. thought we needed brown for the trunk of the Christmas Trees. He's working on creating that color icing here.
Jack clearly does not know how to handle sprinkles!
Jack was a mess.
