Everyone in Lauren's class gets an opportunity (or two, I'm told) to take Spot home for a weekend. Lauren came home two weeks ago explaining that there was only two names left for Spot. And that meant if we were the last name, we would get Spot for the entire Christmas break. Unfortunately Thankfully, we had Spot the weekend before break.
We gave him a makeover...
Took him sledding...
And even baked cookies with him at Grandma's house.
I think Lauren's favorite part was taking Spot to enjoy bedtime stories with Santa. The kids got to come dressed in their pj's and listen to Santa read. He also took time in between to listen to some very excited children.And they weren't telling him what they wanted for Christmas, one told him about how she painted her nails. Another wanted to know if he knew their Elf on the shelf.
The next morning we had to take Spot back to school and turn in our homework assignment (which took mom an hour to complete!!) that showed everyone about his adventures with our family.
