We had an excellent time at our Lone Star Signers Christmas party this weekend! We learned a few new signs, read Bear Stays up For Christmas, and sang a handful of Christmas songs. Our little ones participated in a book exchange, did a craft, and even played outside for a while.
One of the moms said, "This was the perfect Christmas party for my son!" I agree. We love our students and their families, and it's so special to have them in our home for holiday celebrations. <3

Finally, here's a short video from Signing Time:
