All Smiles

I dare you NOT to get into the spirit of Christmas when you go to a school kindergarten program!

Especially one with the smiliest boy I've ever seen, our Kaden.

 

Kdgchrstms-1

Before the program, there was a little open house in his classroom.

The children all just ADORE his teacher, Mrs. Moore.  She's also a friend of ours, part of our church family...we ALL love her!  

She told us a quick story about Kaden.  (Prepare yourself for a Gramaw-brag moment....)  We all know Kaden is very smart (must take after his Gramaw!), but it's so nice when others realize it.  Even his classmates.  Mrs. Moore told us that she overheard one of his classmates ask Kaden recently, "Kaden, did you go to college before kindergarten?" Ha, ha...he's a lot smarter than many college kids I've known...

All that wonderful school stuff makes me miss teaching.  Just a little.

Showing Mommy, Daddy, and Karter some of his work....

...while the twins Kassie and Kelsey were enjoying the colorful chairs in their colorful Christmas outfits.

Elf application?  He's hired!

Then down to the gym for the kindergarten Christmas program, "The Night Before Christmas."  Kaden spotted us in the crowd!  That SMILE.....

 

Kdgchrstms-11

...Gramaw never gets enough of it!

 

Kdgchrstms-12

There are 4 classes...I'm guessing about 90 children in his class.  The Shenandoah Class of 2028.  YIKES!!!

 

Kdgchrstms-20

He had a couple of speaking parts which Kaden, of course, absolutely nailed (I'm very sure he had them memorized, but he used the paper his music teacher gave him)!  Proud Gramaw!

 

Kdgchrstms-18

Driving his "horse"....

 

Kdgchrstms-22

Cute little reindeer...

The elementary school principal, Mr. Kinsey, made a cameo appearance as Santa in the chimney. Mr. Kinsey was Kaden's daddy's varsity basketball coach 15 years ago. It's one of the things I love about small communities...always lots of connections!

 

Kdgchrstms-36

Snapping fingers?  No problem...Kado's been finger-snapping since he could talk...and watch sports!

 

Kdgchrstms-37

Kdgchrstms-40

With his little rhythm egg...

 

Kdgchrstms-42

Kdgchrstms-44

Kaden melts Gramaw's heart...how I love this child!

 

Kdgchrstms-41

God gave him many special gifts, but his constant grin is probably my favorite.

That's our Kado...

...all smiles!
