2011 Christmas Show

Taylor's Christmas Show was this morning. Directly after announcements the whole school filed outside to the basketball courts to see the show. The show lasted all of about 10 minutes, and as far as I'm concerned, basically starred Taylor.

I'm not kidding!

This first picture shows the three french hens. only the first and 6th graders participated. The rest of the school and interested parents got to watch.

This second picture shows the 3 french hens, the 2 turtle doves, the partridge and the pear tree. Each time in the song that they said their name, the kids would step forward and do a little dance.

Four boys were the five golden rings. All from the first grade. They were all dressed up in suits and ties. Everytime it was their turn, they would step forward, go down on one knee, and offer up their golden ring. Too cute for words.
The reason I say the show starred Taylor, is that the first thing that happened was she was put on the microphone between the 8 maids a milking and the 7 swans a swimming, and proceeded to read St. Anthony's Charity prayer. Out loud and with lots of feeling.

The show then commenced, and then they had her do the prayer again to close the show. Both times is was so surprised, that I didn't get to film the whole thing. I'll post portions of the show when I can upload them to utube.
At the end of the show, T walked off away from all the kids and her class with the principal, headed toward the main building of the school. T reports she went to the office, so that she could recite the prayer to all the ladies in the office.

That's my girl...first grade and already kissing up to the principal. and with no urging from mom either! Its just innate!

What a fun morning!

Talented and smart - that's our T.
What a precious child. Love you T.

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
