Christmas Program

Ryan's Christmas program at school went well. Everyone in his class played angels and they sang a few original Christmas songs as well as Silent Night. If I must say so myself, he looked so handsome up there and he had the biggest smile on his face the whole time. I think he loves performing. I didn't get to take many pictures because we were so far back from the stage and it was a little dark at times during the performances.

This is how far we were. Actually, if I zoom into this picture, I can find Ryan. He's about the sixth child from the right, next to the girl with the dress with the dark sleeves. Can you find him? You can just make out a speck of dark hair! Sorry, I don't know how to make the picture zoom in when you click on it.

Emily was very well behaved. She made it until about three minutes until the end of the program. Then she'd had enough and wanted to wander away. I think she did quite well.

Here she is being occupied with my pocket calendar.

I've been kind of tired lately. I'm still coughing at night and Ryan has had a cough as well. If it's not me coughing, it's his coughing waking me up. His is getting better, but I'm still at it. Hopefully, it will be on it's way out soon.

The rest of the weekend was spent shopping, or just doing this and that. I actually wasted a little time when I went for my hair appointment and realized as I was sitting in the waiting area that my appointment was the following week! That was a little embarrassing, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who's done that!

During the next few days, I hope to shop a little bit more for some of the things left for the kids before they start their Christmas vacation on Wednesday. Steve also starts a much needed vacation on Thursday, then we can do some fun things with the kids. I pray no one else gets sick!

Aren't Christmas Programs fun? We always enjoy our program. The kids always do a fantastic job. For our program I left the littlest one home. She no way would have sat still for it.

Thanks for the photos. I was struck by the sheen in Emily's hair. I like that cut on her. The hair is beautiful!

I hope and pray you'll all be well for Christmas so you can do fun things and enjoy each other.

Lori - Yes, the Christmas programs are great. It's amazing that the younger ones do as well as they do!

Suzy - I'm sure your girls did great! The littlest ones are just so precious!

Maryellen - Emily is doing well with her haircut. It tends to get all in her face when it's longer. Thanks for the prayers. We seem to be doing better health wise!!
