Our morning was filled with dancing, singing, and laughter! We started singing a new song for the holidays, Jingle Bells. We sang it a few times, used bells while we sang, and also listened to a kids version of jingle bells on youtube. It was so much fun spending the morning dancing and moving our bodies. Some of our dance moves are pretty fun now!
