MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM CCP!
FROM THE DIRECTOR
Here is a list of my favorite Christmas traditions with my family –
1) We always wait too long to buy our tree so we go and try to find the least “wonky” one we can find. Then we always say we will do it earlier next year, but we don’t.
2) Decorating Christmas Cookies is one of our favorite traditions. As your children become teenagers, you get some cookies that might be inappropriate for younger audiences.
3) I have ornaments that represent all of Santa’s reindeers. The kids take turns putting them on the tree and Rudolph is the star.
4) My husband and I both hang two turtle doves on the tree and then kiss while the kids scream “eeewwww”.
5) Driving around looking at Christmas lights. Our favorite neighborhood is in Bedford. It is called “Twas the night before Christmas – Texas style”. The neighborhood is called Glenbrook and it is off Cummings between Central and Forest Ridge.
6) We always open one present on Christmas Eve.
7) Our big meal is on Christmas Eve after Church services so Christmas day we can just be lazy and have fun.

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling! Ring ting tingling too! We will be ringing those sleigh bells and dancing to holiday tunes from around the world. Christmas songs are a wonderful way to create new memories and share traditions during the holiday season. “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” is a great quote from one of my favorite holiday movies, Elf. Singing songs during this special time lifts spirits and brings cheer to everyone. Children love to share their favorite songs. I encourage you to sing in the car, visit a nursing home, or go caroling in your neighborhood with your family. The 3s classes have been learning new songs about the importance of Christmas and will be performing their program, “Christmas Story,” on December 17th at 12:30pm.
