Christmas Dinner for School

Those are some scary eyes!
Once again, it is time for the annual holiday party/dinner at the twins school.  This year they decided to do at the swank George Washington Hotel.  While this may have seemed like a good idea -- a room with 100 kids under the age of 10 at tables set with 8 pieces of flat ware, no booster seats, and dinner served at 7 -- not a great idea.  After paying $20 a plate for food we didn't get because they were out when we finally got served - and the deserts that were cross contaminated so all the nut allergy kids got none -- I think we will pass next year!

The boys were as good as they could be given the circumstances.  Grayson happily sat wit hhis class while they sang their songs - but I am pretty sure he didn't sing.  Gabe was, as he is, overcome with shyness that required he sit glued to me and not with his class while they sang.  On the last song he got up the nerve to stand up and go stand close to them (with much coaching to scoot, scoot, scoot closer!)  Again, after listening to him sing the songs at home for weeks, he didn't sing a peep.  My kids are weird.
