GINGERBREAD HOUSES

DECORATING FOR THE HOLIDAYS

JAKE'S JAZZY JINGLE BELLS

If you didn't know already, bow ties are the all the rage!

It's Mr. Jazzy Jingles, himself and his roadies.


Santa Claus made a special appearance at the end of the night's performance.


(Okay...so heads up...you can't really see Jake in this clip, but he's really there. Unfortunately, he was standing in the way of Mr. Tanner's arm and out of the spotlight, but rest assured I saw him walk up there so I'm pretty sure he is playing!)

IAN'S 1st GRADE XMAS PROGRAM

Along with a few songs, Ian and his classmates put on mini skits showcasing holiday events that happen in Spain and Mexico, such as Las Posadas, the 3 Wisemen, the ringing in of the New Years while eating 12 lucky grapes (this is the skit Ian was a part of), and Christmas Eve.

Ian was also one of the kids who opened up the night's performance by translating the Spanish introduction for the audience. We had to take out the word "first" from his part because he's lost both his front top 2 teeth and "f's" aren't the easiest for him to say just now.

THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER!

MAGGIE'S KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM

For the evening's performance, the Kindergarteners sang a variety of Christmas songs from around the world (Love the "burrito" song...and it's about a donkey not a Taco Bell delicacy!) and danced the Sevillana - a dance from Spain that Maggie's teacher taught all the kids.
