The Gift of Christmas

It’s the little things that mean the most. The look on children’s faces when they first set eyes on Santa Claus, tiny voices singing classic Christmas carols, and spending quality time with family and friends in a warm and cozy home.  These are the moments we will treasure for years to come.

This is the season of giving and celebration, and at Little Tulips Family Child Care, we celebrate all that has been achieved this past year, and all that has been overcome.  We are thrilled to be able to share these moments with you, as we cherish our Christmas memories and create many new ones!

From our Family to Yours..

Families of children with special needs don’t celebrate occasions like everyone else.  Christmas and the holidays in general can bring additional stresses and challenges to our unique situations which are already often challenging enough.  Our children require extra attention and extra preparation that can drain us before the holidays even begin.

This Christmas, our family is focusing on what means the most to us: Each other!  We are excited for the holidays!  We are excited for the lights, the magic, the excited face of our sweet little boy, the togetherness, the love, the joy, the remembering.  We will spend our time with the ones we love, embrace what makes our family so special, and celebrate in the true spirit of the season.

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Play it Loud!!

Today we had another fabulous music session with our friends at Project Grace! This time, our children were introduced to the trumpet!

Terry Campbell is a local trumpet player and educator.  He treated us to some classic jazz tunes and a few sing-along Christmas songs. Our little ones were amazed by the many different sounds that a trumpet can make!  We even tested Terry to see how many animal sounds he could produce!  Each child had a turn pressing the valves and controlling the mute to create different sound effects.  It was a wonderful experience for them!

Thank you for sharing your talent with us!  http://www.terrycampbellmusic.com/
