Preschool Christmas Party

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way with a bell hung around my neck. They were way more interested in ringing the bells than in singing the song. But there is actually a story that goes with this one.

This was the 2nd of 3 songs. I don't have pictures of song number one. It was Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. They had hand gestures for it and everything. The teacher got them all together on the oval carpet. The teacher in the rocking chair. Just like they did in practice. They all stood up and sang the song and did the gestures. All while facing the teacher. Leaving all of the parents and friends standing in the back of the room, watching the backs of the preschoolers singing Rudolph and doing cute gestures.

So at the beginning of song 2, the teacher got the kids to turn around so "parents can take pictures." She started out singing behind them standing in front of the chair. They kept trying to turn around and look at her. So she moved to the side of them. They just kept watching her. And as they sang and rang their bells, they watched it. And turned a little towards her. And sang, and turned some more. By the time the song was over, they were all facing the teacher, standing sideways from the parents. All of the parents laughing to ourselves and each other. Song number 3, the teacher just gave up and went back to the chair. I couldn't tell you what the 3rd song was. The other parents and myself were still laughing.

Decorating cookies with sprinkles. Or more accurately sprinkles with a cookie underneath it.
