Monhegan Christmas Morning!
We had our very own Christmas morning at the Monhegan School. We always have a celebration on the day of the play and last year we started the new tradition of having the students and their families come for a festive breakfast. Unfortunately Margaret and her family were off island in the morning along with the boys' mama so we had a small gathering for breakfast but it was still delicious!
The table was set!
Candles, grapefruit, and BROWN SUGAR!
Home-Made sticky buns. Good lord. Delicious.
We also had eggs, bacon, and croissants! YES!
We filled up fast with all this good food.
Scout was willing to help lighten the load... but we didn't think the sticky buns would be good for him.
Breakfast was a success!
Then it was time for the exchanging of presents... yet another famous Monhegan tradition!
Donna got the boys motorized helicopters!
Can you say... best. gift. ever!
Actually, the best gift ever is this home-made basket Donna made me... she rocks!
Donna with her new hat, earrings, and bumper sticker!
Time to get the helicopters working!
Good thing these guys are little tech-wizards.
And we have lift-off! These little helicopters were SO cool!
Then it was time for the traditional game playing while we waiting for Margaret to arrive!
And then another round of presents!
Quinn with his "Peace. Love. And Explosives!" shirt!
Dalton opening his gift from Margaret!
Quinn with his new book... of course it has weapons in it!
Maya wanted to help open some presents too!
Margaret seems to be liking her new book! It is about llamas! Who wouldn't love a book about llamas!?
Dalton was very happy with our Christmas festivities!
Look at all my wonderful gifts! I have the best students in the whole wide world!!!
