Preschool Christmas Party

This was a blast! They had snacks, songs, Tickles the clown and even a visit from Santa! Imagine about 50 kids plus their little brothers and/or sisters running around a gym jacked up on treats and the idea that Christmas is only a few days away.
Crazy - but entertaining.
I'm always amazed at how teachers and child care givers can get these wiggly chaotic little bundles to sit still on a magic carpet to listen to a story or sing songs. Ethan was mesmerised by the clown and the introduction to Santa. I would love to know what he is thinking in his little head when things like this are going on - you can almost see the wheels spinning as he takes it all in.
Beckett was spellbound as well. He had a look that was a cross between wonder and concern while he sat still for 10 or 15 minutes just watching the clown. When Santa was introduced and sat down - Beckett went wandering up in front of him and pointed and said "DAN-ta". I guess he is feeling a little more confident about him since our trip to the mall. His eyes were so wide and he didn't blink - then he put his little hand up and did his funny palm-facing-in mini-wave. So cute.
