That was one of my favorite Christmas books growing up and I had to figure out a way to use the title for one of my posts. This is as close as I could get.
Last night Frances had her Christmas concert for school. It was her first one and the school’s first time having one – and for a night of “firsts” the show went fairly smoothly for all involved.
Each class sang one song a cappella starting with the 2 ½-year-olds singing “Santa Claus, Santa Claus”
The 3-year-olds singing “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”
The 3 ½ year olds singing “Jingle Bells”
And finally the 4-year-olds singing “Frosty the Snowman”
We were in the very back because George hadn’t been in the best of moods all day and I thought we would very likely need a quick escape route, so my pictures are fuzzy at best; but I was able to get some “behind the scenes” moments:
|The first thing they all wanted to do was to take OFF the costumes.|
And speaking of George, he was a perfect angel the entire show (believe me, this was unexpected), clapping at all the right moments and enjoying a prime viewing spot during Frances’s big performance:
The only time he fussed was when it ended.
|And for the record, I put this sweater on George thinking it was Christmas-themed. |
At the concert he kindly (and loudly) pointed out to me that he had "COWS!" on his sweater.
But now I am wondering if they are Christmas cows?
|A big "thank you!" to Will's parents for coming. I'm sure they thought this duty had ended thirty years ago.|
The entire concert lasted 30 minutes (bless them!) and the kids got to keep their costumes. I can only imagine the various manifestations of Frosties I will be seeing throughout the day today; if Daddy is willing to share the costume that is:
Happy Thursday, everyone!
