Ducky, Ted, Pembleton, and Blizzard are so excited about Christmas this year! Not only is it their first Christmas in England, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is coming out! They are so excited about all the Star Wars themed Christmas decorations. So far, their favorite Star Wars themed Christmas item is their Advent Calendar. Ducky says, “Counting down for Christmas has never been so much fun!”

Do you have an advent calendar?

How are you getting into the Christmas spirit?

Merry Christmas DtPb!The wait is over! Ducky, Ted, Pembleton & Blizzard are on Santa Watch! They are tracking Santa using the NORAD Santa Website.

For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight… In 1958, the governments of Canada and the United States created a bi-national air defense command for North America called the North American Aerospace Defense Command, also known as NORAD, which then took on the tradition of tracking Santa.

We hope you all have been good this year! Merry Christmas!

Earlier today Pembleton received a special Christmas package. One so special, there were instructions to open it right away. Ted and Blizzard were so excited, they couldn’t wait for Pembleton to open! “Open it! Open it!” They shouted.

“I don’t know, should I wait for Ducky?” Pembleton asked. He heard a muffled giggle but dismissed it.

“No, you should open it now.” Ted said as he covered his mouth, holding in a laugh.

“Okay. I will.” Pembleton slowly started to open the package- when suddenly it BURST OPEN!

“Surprise!” Ducky shouted as he popped out of the box!

“Not funny,” Pembleton pouted. “You were definitely not on my Christmas wish list!”

MERRY CHRISTMAS PEMBLETON!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS PEMBLETON!!

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it is Ducky and the Gang’s favorite time of year! One of their favorite Christmas traditions is caroling, so today the gang decided to stroll around the park singing cheery songs to celebrate the season.

Favorite Carols!

Ducky’s: Jingle Bell Rock!

Ted’s: Little Drummer Boy

Pembleton’s: Silent Night

Blizzard’s: Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer

Silent Night, Holy Night!

Silent Night, Holy Night!

Ducky and the gang are currently living in Israel. As such they are learning about and celebrating many Jewish holidays. Tonight starts Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Jewish New Year! As part of the celebrations they ate apples with honey and pieces of a special round challah bread, and then they blew rams horns (which was kinda gross).

Chag Sameach! Happy Holiday! Shana Tova! Good Year!

Ducky and the gang had a special visitor earlier today. While on a practice run for the big night next week, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer stopped by to say “hi”.  He  joined Ducky, Pembleton, Ted, and Blizzard for some reindeer games. They played leap frog, ring around the rosie, “duck, duck, Ducky” and “who can jump the highest”. They shared lots of laughs before Rudolph had to head back to the North Pole.

5 Days til Christmas!

I think your nose is glowing!

Ducky and the Gang are so excited about the holidays. They can’t wait for Santa to come, for the cookies, and merry making.  With only 13 more days til Christmas,  they can hardly stand it!

Yesterday Ducky and Pembleton were able to complete their letters to Santa, with the help of Ted and Blizzard. While they had one more day til the deadline, they didn’t want to wait one more minute. They put on their scarves and headed to Downtown Bryan. After mailing their letters, they got cookies at the bakery, toys for the angel tree, and donated their leftover coins to the the Lambs collecting money for charity.

When they got back home, they sat in Pembleton’s office near the fire and had hot cocoa. After relaxing for a bit, Ducky exclaimed “This is going to be the best Christmas ever!”

"I hope Santa gets our letters in time!"

“I hope Santa gets our letters in time!”

14 more days til Christmas!

The class gathered around the table to celebrate Thanksgiving. Before they dug in to their delicious meal, they each said what they were thankful for.

Ducky and Ted were thankful for friendship and pie.

 Pembleton and Blizzard were thankful for learning and family.

The lambs were thankful for time off of school and polka music.

 While Mrs. Cottontail was thankful for her health and good students.

After eating way to much and enjoying many laughs, Ducky and friends were ready for a nap.

We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

“Good morning class,” Mrs. Cottontail exclaimed, “Who can tell me why we celebrate Thanksgiving?”

“To have a day off from school” said Rodolph the lamb.

“We do get the day off,” said Mrs. Cottontail, “but that is not the reason.”

“To eat lots of pie?” Ducky Asked.

“We do eat lots of pie,” Mrs. Cottontail replied, “but that’s not quite it.”

“I know, I know!” Pembleton shouted. “To give thanks for all the wonderful friends, family and blessing we have in our lives.”

“Exactly Pembleton.” Mrs. Cottontail smiled. “Now lets celebrate.”
