My shining star

I have been a posting fool the past few days. But I wanted to get Jordan's little solo on the blog before I forgot/while I was on the computer.

My baby sang one line, three times, for "Mary Had a Baby" during the school Christmas concert. Of course, I am biased when I say she is good. But I think I am right. And just watch her bob her knees to the music. You would never have known that she was nervous. And so was I, but only because she was. So proud of my little angel.

Enjoy these last few days before Christmas. Try not to get too stressed out. Remember the reason for the season, whatever the reason for you may be.

Very nice. My oldest sang a solo in the Christmas play years ago, and... I still get a little thrill thinking about it :-).

Very, very cool...my oldest daughter had her holiday concert yesterday and it was awesome to see her up on stage playing the recorder. Cherish the memories...they grow up so darn quick...

She did great! Got her mom's musical talent, I guess.

Loved the blow-by-blow tree acquisition (last post).

(Re: your whatever-your-reason comment, I'm thinking that if someone is celebrating Christmas, I think the reason has to be Christ, yes? Otherwise they're celebrating the solstice or xmas or some other thing...)

Thanks for the comments, everyone. And glad you loved the play-by-play Mel (or at least pretended to!).

And, Mel, although Jordan knows that Jesus's being born is the most important reason for the season for us, we like having Santa around/to include him in our season.

I don't begrudge people for celebrating only the secular part. That said, when I wished a cashier at Big Lot's "Merry Christmas," she said nothing back to me. I have no idea if she does not celebrate Christmas or if she is just rude.

If someone wished me a happy Kwanza or Hanukkah, I would probably say thanks and leave it at that, but it does not really apply to me, obviously.

These kid productions are always so cute. She did a great job! I look forward to seeing more of these as the years go by!
