Too Busy Being Full of Christmas Cheer

12.14.2011Today we did not have class, due to it being the Immaculate Conception. Since we didn’t have class, I headed over to Kiser Elementary school for Christmas at Kiser. This is similar to Christmas on Campus but on a much smaller scale. The program runs from about 1:30 to 2:50, which goes by extremely fast. During this time you are assigned a child and then play games and do crafts with them for the day. You also bring them a small Christmas gift and finish up the day with hot chocolate and some cookies. The little girl I was assigned was extremely cute and it was very nice spending the day with her. Then, when I returned back on campus, I grabbed a quick bite to eat and then hurried off to get in the bus line for my adopted child for Christmas on Campus. I adopted a child last year and had so much fun that I decided to do it all again this year. All of campus gets decorated with Christmas lights, ice sculptures, a gigantic Christmas tree, a manger and lots of other holiday decorations. My child and I began at Humanities which was filled with crafts and other holiday activities, such as building a gingerbread house, decorating cookies, making ornaments—all kinds of stuff! Then, we moved on to the Science Center where we watched “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Lastly, we headed over to the Rec where they have carnival games all set up in the gym. And then, before I knew it, it was already 8pm and was time to put my child back on the bus to go home. It was hard because she did not want to leave! We had such a great time and Christmas on Campus always puts me in the holiday spirit. Everyone on campus is especially friendly and full of Christmas cheer and it is a great place to be on this day! I cannot wait for Christmas!
