Dru's Kindergarten Christmas Program

 A few weeks ago 3 of the 6 kindergarten classes performed in the morning for family at school. The other 3 classes performed in the afternoon. They sang quite a few songs for us. As you can see she doesn't suffer from stage fright and is a confident performer. You'll also notice the polar opposite in a few of the other kids around her. FYI, all songs are in Spanish.

 She's on the top row in the middle
Next three songs

Visit with Santa Claus

On Dru's birthday I made an appointment to see Santa. They were dressed in their holiday best and got to tell him their requests. Santa is so good with the kids!
Waiting their turn

Santa was making sure they clean their rooms and eat their vegetables

Then he asked them their wishes, and he says "Cool, Cool, Cool!!"
(Dru = Barbies and Leo = Lego guys)

Then he asks them if they will take a picture with him

This one he wanted to show off their nice outfits :)

Dru's Birthday Party

Dru's birthday party was the day after her actual birthday. She chose a Barbie theme as you can see. Lots of family spent the evening with us to celebrate with her. We had pork sandwiches followed by cake and ice cream. She loved all of the wonderful gifts she was given. Six is pretty awesome!

I love the glow of the candles, all six of them

Dru's 6th Birthday

Dru's birthday fell on an off school day for her so Julie and I took the day off to spend it as a family. I made an appointment to see Santa as well. They gave him their wishes for Christmas, Dru wants a Barbie, and Leo wants Lego "guys" or minifigures. After visiting Santa the kids went on some rides. They surprise me each time we go when they try things they were scared of before. I am quite sure she enjoyed her birthday and is thrilled to be six!
A little chat with Santa

Santa is so good with them

He took a photo to show off their outfits :)
