Earlier this week Lucy had her school Christmas program at a nearby church. This was our first time with something like this, so we got there at 6:00 (for the 6:30 show), to find the parking lot packed and almost no seats left! But we were able to find a spot up in the balcony, which gave me a good vantage point over to the side – where I would not be blocking anyone – so I could take some photos. I took video too, but I’m still working on it, and I wanted to post some pictures to the blog before leaving for Chicago this weekend. At the very least, you can see my husband’s phone video (link below) to get the idea. It was really cool to see our little Lucy out there, singing and doing the motions… but I have to admit, the most memorable part of my whole evening was after her class was done, when some of the kids were in the lobby area. Parents were having kids stand next to Christmas trees for pictures, and she saw one of her favorite friends, they hugged and giggled and chased each other around in their little fancy Christmas dresses… it was adorable.
[Sorry this post does not feature professional quality photography. I really didn't go into it with the mentality of capturing it that way, I just brought my camera along like any other parent would. The only difference was my camera weighs more and I was able to use a great lens to photograph my little girl from waaaay far away. It was like watching through binoculars!].
On with the show! The Pre-K and Kindergarteners were the first ones up, singing “Christmas Jubilation” (this song is in my head a lot lately, and even Henry sings it all the time). Let’s see if you can find Lucy!
Christmastime is here, and I plan on posting more holiday cheer and winter scenery on the blog… hope you don’t mind! Have a lovely weekend!
