8th Graders Christmas Party with Santa.

I can't believe how time have flown.  I can still remember the very first day I dropped off my daughter at the kindergarten, I felt  nauseous upon  coming back home.  I've never put my children in a daycare and I taught them at home during their pre-school years so it was a first for me.  She took it easier than me though, she was such a true trooper and very independent.  Now, she is in 8th grade, my gosh! 
Since it is their last year in grade school, the homeroom moms and teacher, along with other moms, made sure that they will have plenty of fun and memories to look back to.  Thanks to the best Moms who planned all the activities, the kids  sure are  having a blast.
They had their Christmas party last December 21.  The homeroom Moms invited some of us to be there as well.   We took lots of photos and videos of them.
I am grateful for these Moms who put  their time, effort, and love  in putting  everything together.  They prepared food and games, arts and crafts, and  decorated the whole room to set the yuletide atmosphere.
There's treat for everyone of them.  We went to their classroom  earlier to prep the room and set up everything.
The main chef and dedicated homeroom mom, Mrs. Arnold, thanks a lot Rose.
I love the backdraft.  Mr. and Mrs. Claus were invited so the kids can have their picture taken with them.
Our group of girls.  Sad to see some of them are going to a different school in highschool but that's life.
The memories they all shared will be remembered for a very long time.  They are so close to each other and have a great friendship throughout their elementary days.
Most teens  feel awkward when it comes to their pictures being taken but glad most of these peeps are up to it and were cool about talking to Santa and having their photos taken.
The Moms were even got the chance to have  our pictures  taken with them as well, it was nice.
I am so grateful to met all of these wonderful Moms.  We've developed great friendship, 8 years have been filled with wonderful memories.
The 8th graders are blessed to have Mrs. Ferguson as their homeroom class teacher, she's  a true Mom to them and a great teacher too.
Thanks to Darla for encouraging me to have a photo with Santa, my very first, ha!
It's so nice to see when your kids get along so well with their friends.
The exchange gifts was fun.  My daughter received a whole bag of goodies from this guy right here.
She had a great time looking each of the items that were in the bag, they were all funny lol.
They had a ginger bread house making contest.
They played  stacking cups game.
Those little stockings with the first letter of their names  were so cute.
They were filled with chocolates for them to enjoy later on, thanks Amy!
Over all, they had  a great time celebrating their last Christmas party at St. Joseph School.  High School is around the corner and I am feeling anxious about it.  We will see what  HS awaits for us.


  1. It is sad when the kids go to other high schools. the majority of my son's core group of friends all went to other high schools (they are 9th grade) and now they don't even talk anymore. It's sad.

  2. Really nice you were able to have a 8th grade christmas party. Sure all the kids appreciated all the work that went into having the party.

  3. This looks like it was a great party! My daughter is in Middle School and wishes she got a Christmas party like this I'm sure. She misses them from elementary school.

  4. It looks like they had a lot of fun and your daughter got a nice present. I enjoyed the pictures and congrats on your first picture with Santa. My son is moving to Middle School this year and I am both sad but excited to see where his new journey takes him.

  5. I love how this looks! It looks like you guys had a lot of fun Christmas at the school. I love Christmas parties. It brings out the creative side and so many people. I love a personalized everything is also.

  6. This is a great idea for a party at school. Kids grow up so quickly! I am glad that they were able to have fun.

  7. I wish my sons school had something like this when he was in 8th grade. This looks like such a fun time.

  8. What a cute backdrop. Perfect for all those Christmas party pics.

  9. What a fun Christmas party! I love that they had a Santa Christmas party, so magical.

  10. I love this Christmas party pictures. It looks like it was such a fun time.

  11. I remember some of the Christmas parties when I was in school. I don't think they held a candle to this one!

  12. The party looks like a lot of fun! It must be a pretty tight knit group spending all those years together, and the class size looks ideal!

  13. This looks like it was such a fun event! Our schools stop doing these types of things in Kindergarten, unfortunately.

  14. My daughter's middle school still has parties for Christmas. They really enjoy it and it is nice to see them get to celebrate together.

  15. I am a little bit sad that the Christmas parties season is over. They bring a lot of joy and happiness to kids and grown ups!

  16. What a wonderful set up! It looks like all of he kids had a great time at the party!

  17. I love going to plays, concerts, and productions at school during the holidays. Such a tradition for us.

  18. What a fun way to celebrate the holiday season! My kids had really great parties in their classrooms, such fantastic memories.

  19. It is really great way celebrate holidays, looks like they are excited to celebrate with Santa. They now know about reality of Santa.


It's always a pleasure to read what you have to say! Thank you!
