another preschool christmas program

Well hello 2016! I wonder how long it will take for me to remember the year? June, maybe? Well, Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you have a great one! And I hope that last night's shenanigans won't make today too difficult to swallow...

And shocker here, but I'm still thinking of Christmas! Letty had her Christmas program at school the Friday before Christmas and we, along with my parents and sister-in-law and niece went to cheer her on! For the few weeks leading up to this event I would ask Letty if she knew her part yet, and she would always yell back at me, "no!!" Turns out they truly didn't know their parts until morning of. Maybe because of fighting over the prize role? I have no idea. But shocker of all shocks was that Letty was Mary. Most likely because this was her second year in the program... but still. Mary. My mother and I were floored that they would have made such a mistake.

But she did great, that Mary! None of the kids had any lines of course, they just all walked in to the Christmas Story being read. They sang a few songs, including Away in a Manager and Jingle Bells and it was adorable. The smiles that were had all around. Priceless. 

After the program the kids go a bit nuts, especially mine. The parents help themselves to cookies and we were given an ornament from our child and then off we went home for the rest of the year!
