Exciting Things Happen Part 1

Remember the last program that Hannah had?
Remember how I told you she started crying after the first 3 words in the first song and never got back on stage?

Well, She did the WHOLE thing on Tuesday night with her Christmas program. It was great!

Since I work at the day school I have a couple of advantages. First, I get to see practice. Second, I get to sit really really close!

Here she is at practice waiting for her class' turn on stage. She was very excited!

Once they were on stage I was a little nervous since she was right smack in the middle but she loved it and did great!
After watching the videos (yes, that is plural!) you may understand but after practice they decided that those reindeer antlers were a little too top heavy and they quickly made some paper antlers for them to wear at the actual program.

Here is Hannah Tuesday Night with her whole outfit on (didn't they make cute sweatshirts to wear!) waiting for her class' turn to get on stage and sing their songs. She was excited.Each class sang 2 songs and then all classes got up together at the end and sang 1 song together. Because of some technical difficulties and my absent-mindedness I don't have the video available to put on here from the actual program for all 3 songs but you will get the gist of it.

This is the first song they sang (Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer) from the actual program at night. I love how she is so serious and a little apprehensive until she spots her Daddy and then she decides she can get in to it.

This is the second song they sang (3 Brown and Tan Reindeer) from practice. She was loving it. My favorite it when she does the hand motions for cold and shakes her whole body. It cracks me up.

This is the last song they sang (We Wish You a Merry Christmas) with the whole group from practice. Added bonus here is that she was behind Reese so I got a video of both of them! Everyone was so cute. The first group were elves, the second group were Christmas trees, the third group (my class) were snowmen, the fourth group (Hannah's class) were reindeer, and the last group were bells. It was so sweet.

We decided to make it a "Hannah Night" and let "Aunt" Stephanie play with Justus at home while we went to her program. Afterwards we went to McDonalds and got her an ice cream cone. She thought she was big stuff. It was so cute. We are very proud.
