Co-op Christmas Program

Thursday, the 17th, was Northland Co-op's Christmas Program. Abbie was part of the big choir but Molly's class sang just right outside her classroom.
Molly was so adorable. She walked out in line with her class and then stopped, turned and then for the rest of the time held onto the chair in front of her.

Of course, she got so excited when she saw me and yelled out "mommy." That always melts my heart when she does that. And she does it almost every time I've been away from her for a little while. She does it when I pick her up at Sunday school, co-op or when I come home. I love it!

The classes then sang "Twinkle, twinkle" and "We wish you a Merry Christmas." She sang only one or two word of each song and I mean whispered not sang. It is so funny to me because at home when she is just playing or singing to the radio, she will sing super loud. But when she sings even just in front of me, it is a whisper that you can barely hear.

I did get a picture of Molly with both of her wonderful teachers. Molly really loves going to class and I am so grateful for both of these women who love on my sweet girl!

Ms. "Mez" as Molly calls her, it's really Tamez, close enough right? Molly will run into class to Mrs. Tamez like she is going to give her a big hug but then usually stops right in front of her like she is shy. It is so funny.

And Molly with Mrs. "Ham" again as Molly calls her. Her name is Mrs. Hale and Molly really does love her but I guess wasn't to sure about taking a picture.

After Molly was done, her and I went over to the auditorium to watch the older kids program. Abbie was hilarious when they were walking to their places, because she would barely walk at all until she found where we were sitting. Once she saw us she yelled out "Mommy, Molly" and then walked quickly to her spot. Then a few minutes later she noticed daddy and got even more excited, it was very sweet.

This was the best picture I could get of her on stage. She is to the left of the boy in the bright green shirt. She did a great job singing and doing the hand motions. The cutest part was when they were supposed to snap in one song. Mrs. Vonk told them if they couldn't snap to just flick your fingers. I didn't notice what anyone else was doing but Abbie was hilarious. It was more like jazz hands and rubbing two fingers together every once in a while. I am just really glad we got video of it!

We did get some pictures of the girls together but once again none with us parents in it. Which always frustrates me. I think that is going to be my new years resolution - to be in at least one picture every month and at big events like this I (and Marty) have to be in one picture:)

The best one of my girls - we are so blessed by our kids!
(even though they can't smile for a picture)
