Luau 2009!

Who says you have to pay thousands of dollars to vacation in Hawaii? Whoever said that obviously has never been to the M.E.S. Annual Kindergarten Luau.

It's just like being there....

Well, almost.

The day started off with making sure you have the correct Hawaiian attire...

Oh, did I tell you that he thinks he is too cool to smile for pictures these days?

Jameson was upset that I didn't buy myself a matching ugly Hawaiian shirt. He got over it though when I gave him the hat to wear, AND I let him pick out what he wanted me to wear....

A long-sleeved, sheer white shirt with butterflies and sparklies on it.

Once we were all dressed appropriately, off to school we went. Jameson's morning was spent practicing for the big graduation day coming up at the end of the month, and my morning was spent cutting up tons of fresh fruit for the luau.

Nothing like a big ol' gal like me, trying to cut up a fresh pineapple while sitting in a kindergarten chair.

My knees kept getting in the way of the knife....

You just got that visual, didn't you? LOL

The table of food ended up BEAUTIFUL, and then we just waited for the party to begin.

Before we could partake of the fresh fruit bonanza, however.....the children had some surprises for us....

That's right....Dancing and Limbo!

We were encouraged to join our children on the stage, dancing and limbo-ing....but who was going to stand there and laugh at all the other adults photograph all the fun-ness?

I think that person would be ME! (Along with most of the other parents...)

It started off with the limbo (or better known as "trying to walk under a stick"). I have an exceptionally hilarious video of a certain "unnamed" teacher doing the limbo, but I have been threatened within an inch of my life kindly asked not to publish it for public display.

Next, we moved to doing the Hula...Gracie (Jameson's girlfriend), is the cutie with the black glasses and grass skirt....Jameson is somewhere behind her in the back.

Then, it's some "surf" dancing.... The lady in the red crop pants is Jameson's wonderful teacher, Mrs. Mayfield.

Then, it's free dance for all. If I do say so, myself, my baby has some MAD DANCE SKILZ!

I mean, just look how he holds his arms up in the air, dancing to his own music!

Then after the great show, we were back to the classroom to enjoy the delicious party food!

All the children and parents had a fantastic time! I would like to thank Jameson's teacher, Mrs. Mayfield, for all her hard work. She definitely is a dream teacher, always going above and beyond for her children!

We are both really going to miss her next year!

Oh, and if you would like to see her video....just send me an e-mail.

He He He
