Last night our preschool choirs presented their Christmas music, which of course lasted all of 15 minutes. It was Cade's debut of singing in public, and he did fabulous. He actually sang and did the movements and didn't act silly (unlike the kid who kept moving in front of him so we couldn't see him). And as always, Cooper did fabulous too. He's always done a good job, but we truly expected Cade to do something silly or the other extreme, freak out because of all of the people staring at him. His teacher had been telling me how well he was doing, and we were very proud of him. Of both of them. I will try to post a picture or maybe even a movie.
Yes, this was also the first time that I video taped something my kids did. No, I had never broken down and bought a video camera. I just didn't see the point. My grandfather and my mother both have boxes and boxes of video tapes of us as kids and no one watches them. But I had bought a great new digital camera this summer and it has unlimited digital movies on it too, with sound. So I was able to film the "beautiful" music performance last night.
Can I just tell you that right now my dear husband is curled up on the couch with Cade watching Sesame Street! Its so cute!
Oh yeah, I got a beautiful bow for the top of my tree. One of the girls in my community group came over and told me how pretty my tree was, and instead of taking the compliment, I had to blow it off by saying that I needed a better bow on top, and she said her sweet mother could whip it out in seconds. So she took my ribbon and my angel tree topper home with her and brought it back the next night with the most perfect bow. I will take a picture soon. I love my tree!
