Joyful, Joyful

You know that chick that cries at everything? Not like whiny crying but crying at weddings and when babies are born and when someone says something half way sweet. Well, that's me. You can't take me anywhere, in case you didn't know. 

With that being said, the school Christmas program was last night. This is B's second year at her current school and it's the second year I have struggled during the program not to let the tears flow. There is just something about those little tiny ones singing sweet Christmas songs that gets me. I really wish I had video'd "Happy Birthday Jesus" or the other song the little ones did. It was just too precious. Plus this year will be B's last year in the program because she is moving up middle school next year. I am proud to say I held it all together. Go me. 

The big 5th graders did such a wonderful job with all their reading and singing parts. B nearly threw up in the car on the way there though. She and her twin friends K&A had individual singing parts in the finale. At first she told me the three of them were singing a solo....uh, if there's three people it's not a solo. But then I saw they each had solo pieces in the song. 

Don't they look so grown up! B's nervous face looks a lot like her mad face.

My sweet niece was in the program too. She is in kindergarten this year so I have another 5 good years of watching her perform. 
*She's the cutie in the glasses & that cutie down front is another friend's little boy. I love all the connections we have because of alumni parents and a small school.

Oh no, you're one of those women! I am not one of those women. But I'm one of the women that laughs at those women. So I can at least share the joy with you. Does that count. =)
