Christmas Program at Preschool

Drew and Kayley had their Christmas programs at preschool on Friday.  Overall, I think they had a great time. 

Last year, Kayley cried as soon as she saw me, ran over to me and refused to take part in anything.  This year, she smiled proudly and stood with her class and sang until the boy next to her touched her leg.  Between songs, she told on him to her teacher for everyone to hear.  Then he pushed her leg a little harder and she burst into tears and ran to her teacher and sat with her teacher for the rest of the program.  Little bit of drama from that girl. 

Things looked up when Santa made a visit.  She went up and got her present, but didn't want to get too close.  Santa brought her a princess book of stories and we have been reading it over and over and over!

Getting her present

Last year, Drew came and stood with us while the rest of his class sang.  He wanted nothing to do with it.  Notice the theme with our kids?!  This year he was so excited to sing for us!  He had a great time.

Santa brought him a book on space.  He recently learned about space at school and is constantly telling us everything he knows about space.  He wasn't as into his book as Kayley was hers.  He seemed to already know most of what was in it.  We read it once and he hasn't asked for it since.  I hope Santa has better luck with the rest of Christmas!

I have tried for two days to post the videos of Drew singing, but they won't load.  I'll have to get my IT guy to help me out!
