We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

Between school and church Christmas programs we were able to experience a bunch of classic little kid performances. Kaitlin had a "meltdown" right before she was to go on stage. Her teacher asked me to come try and calm her. After hugs and kisses and LOTS of bribery with candy, she made it on stage. I held my breath waiting to see if she would crumble under the pressure and all the people staring at her or if she would sing. She sung her little heart out and stole the show as she blew kisses and danced about. Karlie was an loving big sister and held her hand the whole way to give her courage.

At Karlie's preschool performance there were boys doing karate chops, a little girl with a soft velvet dress who kept rubbing her chest, and when they handed out the Jingle Bells a little boy said, "Oh, not the Jingle Bells, I hate those things!" We all laughed so hard.

Hailey was a cheerleader in her Christmas musical. She signed up in September and faithfully attended every practice. She put hours and hours into learning the songs and her part. She has more rhythm than either her mom or dad (which isn't saying much) and was so cute as she sung and cheered for the Lord.

The little girls sang "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and we have taken them caroling to our neighbors house as we delivered cookies. So We all Wish you a Merry Christmas!
