Christmas Pageant

[singlepic id=7 w=225 h=300 mode=web20|watermark float=right]Last night we took all the girls (except the oldest, she was working) to our youngest’s Christmas Pageant. It was wonderful and painful all at the same time. Our daughter performed wonderfully, and we got some nice video, except for at the end when all of the other parents lost control of their kids and let them roam through the aisles so they could see.

What is with that? I kept MY girls in line, even though they were complaining that they couldn’t see either.

Then, of course, the video camera we were using ran out of room on the card (because I still need to teach Mee Mee how to get them off there) right before the song that we really wanted to capture. We still got it using our still camera to take video, but it was dark and hard to see. And while I was taking that, I was switching out the card on the video camera.

Again, of course, the card wasn’t formatted for that particular camera, and I had to format it all the while still trying to capture video of the performance (because I live with 5 girls and they don’t know how).

Went and had cookies and punch afterwards. All in all a good time.

Frosty the snore man

Frosty has become our youngest’s favorite movie this year. She watches it three to four times a day, and can almost recite the dialog.

There’s a part in the movie where Frosty and the kids go to the train station to get him a ticket to the north pole, and the ticket counter guy is asleep in his chair snoring. She says, “That looks just like Mee Mee snoring!”

Mee Mee is her grand mother on her mother’s side. 😀

(I must have laughed for about 10 minutes.)

Back to School!

Today was the day; both middle kids got on the bus this morning headed to school. It’s the littler one’s first day of first grade. She will be in school all day! Such a big girl. The older one is starting the 4th grade; last year of Elementary school. She towers over the other kids at the bus stop. It’s kind of funny.

“Mommy” got a little choked up. Of course, she was taking all kinds of pictures, so we have the whole thing documented. One of the other moms that she knows is having a back to school breakfast for the moms, so she’s “out with the girls”. 🙂

The baby and I are home alone. I’m working (aren’t I always?), and she is watching “Yo Gabba Gabba” and “Sesame Street”.

All an all a good day so far. I can’t wait to hear the first day stories when they all get home.
