Blainey's Christmas Program

The last day of School before the holiday break, Blaine's kindergarten class put on a little program along with 2 other classes. they sang 10 different songs including: Up on the House Top, Feliz Navidad, mousey in the snow (yeah we didn't know what one either) and the dradle they tried to hit each nationality and religion! so politically correct! Of course Blaine was super cute, but since he is the tallest in class, he was stuck on the top row so it was hard to get a good picture of him. either way, he was so cute and did a great job!
